When Grace, 27 years old and with only a few months left to live, returns to her home town of Brecon, she is catapulted nearly 1800 years into the past. At first she attributes her hallucinations to her brain tumor but as the visions become more detailed and closer to the present day, she becomes involved with a certain wickedly handsome and rather inhuman Roman, who has an obsession with blood.
Grace is forced to confront her fears when the past begins intruding on the present, and she falls deeper in love with her phantom man.
'Death is only one option.'
A love story with a supernatural twist, it looks at vampires from an unusual angle, knitting together the twelfth century with the present day.
This is the first novel in the Resurrection trilogy..

This book was a first read by Elizabeth Davies for me, so this surely is an unbiased review. The story line was fascinating. When I started reading it I had a hard time putting it down to sleep or eat. Grace and her situation were so heart wrenching. Then her hallucinations start and take her on an adventure of love and danger.
I found the character Roman to be very sensual, even when he was acting scary and/or deadly. If it wasn't for who/what he was, I don't think the story would have had such an impact. I love the mystery behind Grace's hallucinations. Are they really hallucinations or is she really traveling through time? Why does she always appear where Roman is? What is the link between them? Another part I enjoyed that had me LOLing, a lot was the language difference, phrases and words, it was hilarious. Could you imagine how hard it would be to ask someone a thousand years ago where the bathroom was?
I truly enjoyed this book, Grace, and her family and friends. It was brought together nicely and kept me wanting more, page by page. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
