Book Two: Circles of Time

(4 customer reviews)
SKU: ORP124 Categories: , , Tags: , ,

An intriguing psychological thriller of historical fiction, Nordic mythology, romance, mystery, and suspense. Set in the English Lake District of 17th century England, a 10th-century runic ring and a horse messenger of the gods invoke the spirit of a female Viking warrior, and an ancient prophecy comes to pass. Three young cousins are complicit in the disappearance of a woodcutter, and the superstitious villagers believe it is witchcraft. But the secret of the forest lays dormant, and Quaker persecution intensifies as the story races to an exciting climax.

  1. Jamie Michele

    Review by Jamie Michele for Readers’ Favorite. 5 Stars. Very well written.
    David Thomas Kay puts a diverse cast of characters into some of England’s most volatile moments’ and able to balance multiple subplots, particularly with regard to romance and a bit of mystery. The Ring of Mann will be well received by readers who enjoy sweeping sagas along the lines of Bernard Cornwell.

    James W’s Review for Indie reader of ‘The Ring of Mann’ by David Thomas Kay. 5 Stars

    Highly engrossing historical fiction

    Written with prose that marries the vivid efficiency of Southern-Gothic writers with Dickensian touches, Kay offers readers a vivid, ‘insider-look’ at hallmark historical events such as the great London fire and the black death, ultimately weaving a highly intimate narrative into one of the most tumultuous periods of history.
    Part suspenseful thriller, part historical melodrama, at over 500-pages, ‘The Ring of Mann’ is every bit as engrossing as, say, Martin’s GOT series, albeit, with the added weight of actual historical context. If historical fiction is your thing, then David Thomas Kay’s ‘Ring of Mann’ is highly recommended.
