    12. Time Travel Romance LamebrainedI had a hard time finishing this one, everytime I put it down, I just couldn t get myself to pick it back up again, although I finally did muddle through But there were just too many things about this book that deflated its appeal, including a number of poorly thought out story points For example, at one point, Eva, who can t ride a horse, is blindfolded and riding behind Wallace, where she d have to be dearly holding on to not fall off Yet she removes a notebook a [...]

I just finished reading this exciting novel I feel I want to reserve my comments until I complete Book 2 in this group I am eager for the story to continue Although I know about the ending of William Wallace and how tragic that was, I will wait to see if that is written so it does not hurt so much as it did in the film There are quite a lot of gory battle scenes in this novel that set my nerves on edge Still, I feel it was accurate to how it may have been Sorry though it was Seems times have not [...]

    26. Enjoyed Rise of a LegendAt first I thought the story was too long, wondered what else could be said, but I was wrong The author delved into Wallace s private life and mixed it with historical facts resulting in an interesting story that kept the reader wanting to know continuing the story is the reason for 4 1 2 stars instead of five Since it s about a real person, the ideas the author comes up with regarding Wallace s private life again, are interesting Read it

    27. AUDIOBOOK listened to 11th 12th October 201710hrs 28minNarrator Dave Gillies does an Ok job.I do like the TT side of it But there s something missingI think I ll have to check book 2 to see if it clears up for me.

    29. Plot is good, some of the story flows very well Other parts are choppy and need revamping I would have preferred if it were an unknown character.
