Wednesday's Favorites: The Keys of the Watchmen by Kathleen C. Perrin



Welcome to the Wednesday's Favorites post. In the Wednesday's Favorites post I will talk about a book I loved and that I think deserves a little more attention. I read popular books, but also many books that aren’t so popular (yet). In this post all sorts of books from all sorts of genre’s will have a chance to shine. Today’s Wednesday's Favorites is 'The Keys of the Watchmen' by Kathleen C. Perrin, a book I read in May 2015.

The Book: 


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23843031-the-keys-of-the-watchmenKatelyn Michaels plans on hating every moment of her visit to Mont Saint Michel with her father’s new French wife. Once there, she is confused when she experiences sensations of déjà vu and hears voices as she and her younger brother explore the medieval village and abbey.

When the oddly-dressed but alluring Nicolas slips Katelyn a strange medallion, she is whisked back through time with him to the 15th century where her Watchmen hosts tell her she is the only hope to save Mont Saint Michel from the invading English armies. Even worse, she learns those armies are led by a fallen angel intent on learning the mount’s closely-guarded secret.

Katelyn is torn by feelings of anger at being taken back in time, inadequacy at finding a modern solution for a medieval problem, and responsibility for the mount’s starving inhabitants. She is also perturbed by her surprising attraction to the ill-tempered Nicolas.

Will she stay to learn why she was chosen by the Archangel Michael and find a way to save his mount?

Praise for 'The Keys of the Watchmen':


The characters were relatable and strong, the descriptions breath taking, the history interesting, the plot perfect, the action heart pounding, and the plan impeccable!

This is a fantastically weaved story with a lot of history mixed in. Katelyn's story as a Watchmen is one you will not forget once you have read it!

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical fiction with a twist of time travel.

Kathleen C. Perrin did an amazing job with this book, and I can’t wait to read more about the Watchmen. When you start reading this book, be prepared to do nothing more than read. And get your tissues ready, because I cried my eyes out at the end.

  1. Time travel! This sounds like a good one, Maureen. I don't often read books that involve time travel, but you've got me curious about this one. I hadn't heard of it before.

    1. This one is really good. I couldn't put it down and it was just so exciting. It also involved some real history.. I think that castle on the cover really exists.
