Correct emr :)

I'm also now in a convent in the 16th century, in Ferrara, Italy, and I so don't want to be there. :mad:

I'm on a fictional island supposedly just off where I live in real life (Northeast Scotland) in both the present day and 800 AD. In both times there is a comet streaking across the sky...

It's The Island House by Posie Graeme-Evans. More timeslip Viking spookiness, except this time they're raiding and terrorising the Picts and the inhabitants of an early abbey :)

I've requested The Island House from the library so I can have a look at it.

I'm in Westeros at the moment. All's fair in love and war!

I'm now about 3/4 way through The Island House and yes I would recommend it. However, it is a bit slow at first, but I can say it definitely picks up about halfway through.

Just got back from Las Vegas. Got "whacked" by Big Tony at THE MOB EXPERIENCE. Great fun if you are visiting. You interact with actors in a
1920s drama!
