The Lost Princesses: Prequel
By Jody Hedlund
King Ethelwulf of Warwick has determined that the Kingdom Mercia is rightfully his and nothing will stand in his way. And King Ethelwulf will show no mercy having employed the fierce and fearsome Saracens to fight against the Mercian troops.
As Ethelwulf lays siege to the castle Queen Aurora accepts Lady Felicia's vow to save the lives of her children - 3-year-old crown princess Constance, and the twin daughters that she has just birthed. At just 17 years Felicia is unsure how she will accomplish such a task but she has pledged everything to fulfill her promise to the dying queen.
King Francis of Mercia has entrusted the safety of his family and the future of Mercia into the hands of his most trusted member of the Elite Guard - Lance. Lance has been entrusted with the princesses and the means of proving their heritage when the time to reclaim what has been lost is upon them. Equipped to battle the enemy Lance has no skills with caring for children much less just born babes. And the noble young woman who has the princesses isn't about to hand them over.
With the enemy just behind them, Lance and Felicia must make their escape from the castle and reach a place of safety to protect their charges. But Ethelwulf wants none left alive who may make a claim to the throne of Mercia and so escape may be more challenging than they are prepared for. And are they willing to give up all that they have known for three princesses who may never reclaim their heritage?
Just a warning the ending will leave you wanting more - fortunately, the first book of the series releases just a few days later so there won't be a long wait. This is yet another lovely read for the YA audience who wants clean reading. Those familiar with Jody Hedlund's previous YA series Noble Knights will love this new world that is opening with this novella. With a nod to medieval history as the setting this is a unique story that will keep the reader's attention. This is one of those just one more chapter books that one just can't put down until the last word.
I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I offer my honest opinion - all thoughts expressed are my own.
It was worth the wait! I fell in love with the main two characters and rooted for them with enthusiasm. The plot was very well-structured (especially for it being a novella, which, being short, gives you limits), and there was always something going on so that you had to keep reading. There was romance with closeness, touching, and kissing, but it was kept appropriate. There were good, Christian messages, but they never got preach-y. And, though a cover is not the book, I can't help but comment on the beauty of the cover, from the dress to the background!
Ever since this was announced, I've itched to read it. Now I finally have, and it was worth the wait!
A New Beginning.
“Sometimes, when we think we’ve come to a dead end, we’ve arrived instead at God’s stepping-stone on the way to bigger plans.”
Jody Hedlund’s newest novella, “Always” is the start of a new young adult series. It is captivating and enjoyable.
A lady of the court has made a promise. The king’s guardsman has also made a promise but each to the other of the royal members.
Both are in a race for their lives and struggle to keep emotions at bay and focus on their duties of protecting the princesses. But as time passes the relationship between the two grows through humility and diversities.
“Always” teaches the lesson of how circumstances in our lives bring us to humbleness.
Once again, Author Jody Hedlund has captivated me with her book. The book was very enjoyable and I was always disappointed when my reading became interrupted. Hedlund, keeps her books modest and sweet. The book is perfect for any younger princesses in the home. But it is written in a way where everyone can enjoy reading it. Don't miss out on adding this new series to your book collection.
I loved the later 3 books of this author's previous YA series, so I was looking forward to this new series as well. This was an okay read, I didn't read the novella that “started” the previous series so I wasn't sure exactly what to expect from this. I did enjoy it when I was reading it, but it was also kind of one those ones where when I think back on it, I find some things that I didn't like as much. The ending felt really rushed and the characters aren't exactly going to be making my favorites list anytime soon. Overall this was a decent read, but I think the full books for this series will be a lot better, and I'm looking forward to reading them.
