This is a time travel book. I loved the characters of Nick and Julia. It was really interesting to have Nick jump time and then jump back after he had adjusted to the 21st century. So instead of having a look at the new world. You have a different perspective on the old world from someone who was from there. I feel as if this could be a first book. Most of the book takes place in England and it is a battle between the Guild and the Ofan for the talisman. The thing or person that enhances everyone else's power. This is Julia.
