Great story idea but poor execution. The intro noted that the language is old English, so therefore, words would be spelled and meant differently than it is today. That's just fine, however, you run across phrases like, "I don't give a rat's ass...." mixed in with "Mayhap I was wrong." Really? Which is it? If I didn't keep getting tripped up with all the time traveling going on with the language, I think I would have enjoyed the story more.
