This book read a lot like "outlander" by Diana Gabaldon to me. I loved that book, and I enjoyed this one too. I thought that the Disneyland arc at the beginning was unnecessary, though, besides the fact that it just set up a connection? It could have started out with them as adults, with the flashback, and I feel it would have fit into the story a little better. Overall, though, I did enjoy the premise of the novel. I have dabbled in writing this genre of novel, but it is difficult to keep timelines straight, and I commend the author for doing that. The resistance put up by Killiney seemed genuine, and the characters themselves had quite a bit of depth of character. The story was rich, the characters believable, and the entire thing was enjoyable.
