Very privileged to be part of TA Williams' Blog Tour for his new book "Chasing Shadows"

A full 5**!!


The Present Day: Left blind and without her family, Amy feels she needs to get away. On a trip along the Camino, she is accompanied by the mysterious and troubled Luke. Having been set up to help Amy by a mutual friend, Luke finds he is also running from his past…
1314: A Templar Knight, Luc, is also running. He meets the wife of a former comrade, now blinded in a terrifying attack: Aimee. Taking her under his wing, they must journey together through a dangerous world.
As they travel through the stunning scenery of Northern Spain, this couple, so very like Luke and Amy, emerge from the shadows of time carrying a treasure of inestimable value.
Chasing Shadows is an enchanting novel about the search for happiness, fulfilment… and love.


I always enjoy Trevor's books and this is a new genre for him so I was looking forward to reading it. Time slip is one of my favourite genres and this one certainly didn't disappoint.

We follow the stories of Amy & Luke in 2016 and Aimee and Luc in 1314. Both pairs are on a Pilgrimage on the Camino and their stories interlink as the book progresses. Modern day Amy has been blinded in a dreadful accident and Luke has emotional baggage. In 1314 Aimee has been blinded in a bandit attack and Luc is a fleeing Templar Knight.

As both girls are blind, Trevor treats us to wonderful descriptions of the scenery and the food! The contrasts between the 2 journeys could not be more marked and I found myself totally involved in both plots. 

A lovely read and thank you to Canelo and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
