Sleepers Castle was once a fortified manor, medieval, the story goes back to ancient druid times “a place for sacred dreaming” and this sets the scene of the story of Catrin who lives in the past – 1400. The present – Andy who arrives at Sleepers Castle discovers she is possessed by dreams of Catrin and her tragic life, but not only does Andy have to deal with such real, vivid dreams, but lurking gleefully in the distance, is a jealous ex wife, plotting and planning to get her revenge. This book encaptured me into a world of intrigue. I found Barbara Erskine writing, memorizing, as she weaves past and present so cleverly, that I noticed in one sentence she had combined the two and it flowed so well, that it didn't seem disjointed at all. There were some aspects to the story that I wasn't fond of, where I skipped a few pages, due to the goriness of the battles and the violent dreams Catrin had, but I didn't lose the gist of the storyline. I would recommend this book, to readers who loves historical fiction novels, readers who like past and present, or time slip books, readers who like descriptive battles Scenes and to writers/authors who want to zone into the dark side for some inspirational writing.
