Evil Across Time
by Roy Askham
Edwina moves into a five hundred year old Tudor cottage in the North of England. Little does she understand what is about to happen in her bed on her first night. Having a very lucid out of body experience, she is alarmed when she is zapped back in time to Medieval England, where she encounters a man who is stripping off his own clothes and replacing them with a dress. The man cannot see Edwina in her out of body condition. She watches on as a woman unexpectedly appears on the scene much to the horror of the man.Each and every night for months on end, Edwina finds that she cannot retire to bed without her bedroom decor changing to the decor of the Medieval period. She continues to watch the man on his travels from England to Scotland where he finds himself in grave danger. As Edwina watches, she is devastated to learn that besides being trapped in time, she is also possessed by an evil entity, which causes devastating consequences for her in the twenty first Century.
My thoughts of Aunt Jean are abruptly interrupted in a way that scares the hell out of me as I see the "Mack" sign in large letters on the front of very large truck, which is now bearing down on top of my car, and then bang! That's the last thing I remember about my car smash.
The next thing I know, a man is shaking me and saying, "Are you alright Ms.?" In a daze, all I can see is a ball of flames and a cloud of smoke surrounding a car on the opposite side of the road. I think, Oh my god, some poor person has had a really bad car accident. The thought of that, makes me feel sick, knowing that no one could survive such a thing. My thoughts are interrupted with the piercing noise of a siren that is becoming louder by the second, as I ask, "Where am I? Why am I sitting here at the side of the road?"
"You are in Wetherby Ms; do you know who you are and where you were going?"
"My name is Edwina and I'm going to visit my Aunt Jean here in Wetherby."
"Well that's a start Ms, an ambulance is here now and a tow truck is also on the way for your car but we need to know where your friend is Edwina?"
I am puzzled. What does he mean, my friend? and what the hell is happening here? I'll ask him. "How do you mean, my friend? I was by myself."
"Well Ms, I'm told that apparently a tall woman kicked the driver's side door off the car and crawled out before it burst into flames, and it seems she has completely disappeared from the scene."
Then all of a sudden I realise, Oh my god, it's my car over there in flames, but who the hell was the tall woman. Then once again, I see a mind image of the large "Mack" sign again, as I did in the same moment that my consciousness left me.
I look at my car; it's impossible for me to even think how any person, let alone me, could ever escape from such a mangled wreck. The man said that the door was completely removed by someone kicking it from the inside. To my way of thinking, only "super woman" could escape something like that and there's no way that I fall into her category.
I enjoyed reading this book. It was full of twists and turns which keep my interest until the last page. A must have book for anyone looking for a book with substance.
