About this product
- DescriptionAndrea gets a second chance on the sixteenth century side of the Time Tube-only to find that thing changes more than the past. Having returned to the twenty-first century she was born into, Andrea Mitchell tries to forget her travels through time-and more specifically, her sixteenth-century lover, Per Sterkarm. She never felt at home in her own century, but it looks as though she's stuck with it. Then Andrea's former boss and enemy, James Windsor-executive of FUP, the corporation responsible for the creation of the Time Tube-offers her ather chance to travel back to the past. She jumps at it, hoping to rekindle her romance with Per. But it's t the homecoming she had hoped for: Per doesn't kw who she is. . . . It seems Windsor has found an alternate sixteenth-century Scotland, and there, Per is t quite the man Andrea fell in love with. Now, wrapped around Windsor's finger, the Sterkarms are on the verge of a bloody feud with their long-standing enemies, the Grannams. But Windsor's manipulations can't stand against the wiles and cunning of the Sterkarms. With Andrea's help, they will turn the tables on both the Grannams and the Elves from the future. Beware the Sterkarms! A Sterkarm Kiss is ather thrilling tale in the award-winning Sterkarm series, perfect for fans of Outlander and Vikings. The impersonal, inhuman violence of the 21st-siders is subtly, effectively juxtaposed with the brutality and anger of the 16th-siders. Andrea again faces an impossible but emotionally engaging situation: choosing between her murderous 16th-century lover and her destructive 21st-side counterparts. -School Library Journal A fast paced story of treachery, sex, love and violence written with such feeling for historical detail that you can hear the clash of weapons. -Observer Praise for the Sterkarm Series The cliffhanger ending promises a sequel-but one that cant come quickly eugh. -Kirkus Reviews on The Sterkarm Handshake Susan Price is the author of the Sterkarm series.
