Bantam, Dec 2000, 23.95, 333 pp.
To survive in this world that is almost a thousand years ahead of his birth year, accidental time traveler Morgan ab Kynan turns to thievery. In this highly advanced
Technological environment, Morgan is quite good at his chosen occupation, which allows him to more than survive. He leads a small gang of felons.
However, his latest booty, a statue of a golden dragon brings Morgan to the attention of the wrong type of people for a thief in the night. Covus Gei, the deadly warmonger wants to kill Morgan because he believes the criminal is his enemy, the PRINCE OF TIME. The White Ladies of Death give chase too because they feel Morgan is their prophecy fulfilled after a ten-millennium wait. One of the White Ladies, a Priestess of the Bones, Avallon Le Severn, finds Morgan first. It shocks them both to find they are instantly attracted to one another. They must flee from the Warmonger who chases them into a wormhole back to his former time in Wales to hopefully fulfill his destiny.
PRINCE OF TIME is an exciting, non-stop blending of elements of romance and fantasy into a powerful tale that is more than the sum of its? parts. The story line in the future is cleverly designed to make Morgan a rogue struggling with his displacement. The return to the past is filled with action although Avallon, a powerful player in the future, all but vanishes from the screen. Still, Glenna McReynolds provides a wild ride that will please fans of all genres as she triumphantly completes her Celtic trilogy (see THE CHALICE AND THE BLADE and DREAM STONE).
