5 out of 5 stars — Enchanting Read    December 1, 2015

Good book from start to finish. The kind of book that keeps you up way past lights out time because you want to read further into the heart of the characters. The author weaves past and present with adventures, magic, mystery, innocent romance, and the thrilling life of pirates in an enchanting read. Glad I bought books 2 & 3. Look forward to the movies!

 Really enjoyed this first book in the Deja Vu Chronicles, May 30, 2015

I really enjoyed this first book in the Deja Vu Chronicles. It was very well written. Marti kept me wanting to read more. She has it progressing in just the right timing to keep the reader anxious to turn the next page and read the next chapter...I am still trying to figure out her big twist...a very different modern day love story.Marti has done extensive research for these books and I find her Celtic spells and mythology absolutely perfect for the time period. A great, fun and enjoyable read!
