This is billed by the publisher as "Outlander for teens" which kind of is and isn't true. The sci-fi/time travel aspect is a lot more purposeful and important in this one, in ways that I find interesting and potentially promising in terms of the future arc of the series. On the flip side, that's a hard comparison to live up to, and this definitely isn't as compulsively readable as Gabaldon's work. Taylor does a good job at describing the total foreignness of medieval England for a modern teenage time traveler, and while the romantic subplot was a bit predictable, there's still plenty to appeal here to teen readers, even if this adult wasn't 100% convinced.
