5.0 out of 5 stars exciting paranormal medieval romance October 2, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1372 on the Isle of St. Kilda, Scotland, Lady Isobel Grange understands the power of the Seer's Stone as she saw first hand in the tower they shared how it eventually drove her mother insane. Isobel's greatest fear is that the stone will drive her mad too. Apparently, the Stone demands Isobel marry Douglas Stewart, known as the Black Wolf of Scotland.

However, besides having no plans to wed anyone ever as he believes their line needs to end with him, Douglas would never heed his abusive father's demand that he marry Isobel. Still he feels it is only right to tell her in person that he will not be her husband. However, whether it is the Stone or just his heart, Douglas finds he wants her. She, in turn, is stunned because she has never been attracted to anyone before. As they fall in love, their families and the Seer's Stone manipulate them leading to a potentially deadly schism between Douglas and Isobel.

Gerri Russell's second medieval romance (see THE WARRIOR TRAINER) is an exciting paranormal historical that sub-genre fans will want to read soonest due to the likable star-crossed lovers. Readers will cheer for Douglas and Isobel who have plenty to overcome if they are to make together. Isobel is especially a fascinating character as she fears she will ultimately follow her mother's path into lunacy that she witnessed even as her mom battled to remain sane for her daughter. Ms. Russell provides a fresh look at fourteenth century Scottish romances.

2.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to love this book. June 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book sounded so great, I really wanted to love it. Unfortunately, I didn't. I ended up not even able to give it 3 stars, which is pretty sad.

First, the author made a huge historical misstep. She pulled a story of tartans from the 18th century back to the 14th. There were no clan tartans in the 14th century, that was a much later development. In fact, it is highly doubtful that there were even kilts that long ago. So why build a historical novel around an anachronism? Sloppy research.

Second, the characters were constantly being driven by the story- being forced to do things out of character for them because it fit the story, rather than letting the characters drive their own actions. There we're countless "huh?"moments in which motivations built previously flew out the window so that the character could make a certain planned scene happen.

Third, the writing is really all over the place. There is a lot of jumping around that makes the story hard to follow. Also, there is at least 50 pages of unnecessary fluff that needs to be edited out to make the story cleaner.

I admit the first error is the most severe in my eyes- historical novels without care to accuracy are just so pointless! Why bother to choose that time period at all? I understand that romance novels put kilts in Scotland in every century, just because, but they can't be your only source of information! A brief internet search would have given the author enough information to know that her tartan story didn't make sense in the 14th century.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but a Few Flaws July 6, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the first book in the series because it featured a female swordswoman. With a name like "Warrior's Bride", and with this being the second book in the same series, I thought this would be the same. I was disappointed. Instead, the story is about a girl who only picks up a sword at the very end in a quite unrealistic scene.

First, let me say that I did read the book through in a few hours and it kept me engaged. So the book was reasonably good. However, there were a variety of flaws along the way. Characters are introduced in very confusing manners, so half the time you're wondering "who IS this person they just mentioned? Was I supposed to know about him or her?" Things are mentioned in the plot as if you'd been told about them, but skimming back through the pages you realize you never were. Sentence structure is sometimes jumbled so you aren't clear who is talking or who is doing what until you keep reading and get further clarification.

A key part of a good story is that you stay immersed in the story. There are several times here where you "step back" and get summary dumps piled on your head. It's not TOO bad if this happens in an unimportant scene - but it's done right in the middle of the final scene! Not good.

A variety of scenes suffer from lack of logic or information. The heroine goes off riding with her hero. The whole time I'm thinking, "hey, what's the chances this girl has ever BEEN on a horse before?" Nothing is said at all about it. Then later in the story she gets on a horse again, has trouble with it, and it's commented that it's only the second time she's ever been on a horse. What, and this didn't deserve any mention or storyline demonstration the first time around? She just hopped on a horse, rode off, no problems, no pain?

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful read November 25, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Warrior Bride by Gerri Russell is a wonderfully written story. The talented Ms. Russell took events from history and made a sad story into a happily ever after, and her story transported me back to another time. I loved finding out the hero's secret...he is a nice guy despite his reputation. This story has many twists and turns that keep you guessing. I read this book before I found out it had a companion book the Warrior Trainer, which you should read first. I cannot wait to read it. I hope to see more from this great author.
