The story has a lot to it the handsome vengeful miserable hero Fox who is stripped of everything his nobility his title his land due to his father being stripped of all this as well. In the belief that his father supposedly committed a murder from a much revered and loved baron. Fox is bitter, hateful and plans revenge towards anyone that is nobility including his two best friends in the world deceptively secretly evil Evan and the beautiful altruistic heroine Jordan. When Fox loses both of them as friends by shunning everyone that is nobility taking on the somewhat Robin Hood persona but by stealing only what they need which doesn’t include money but from food, other things and healing herbs kind of made me wish he would of stolen money to fix up his run-down home too. Fox has a lot to deal with his brother who can’t stand Jordan but is also a monk even with his feelings of hate towards other characters his crazy dad who is delusional and sees people who don’t really exist with murder, mystery, family ordeals, villains, kids all thrown into a romance. Maybe there was just too much in the story all at once.
After saying all of this it really sounds like I didn’t like the story which is not true. I did like reading the story and the way Ms. O’Donnell can tell and weave a fairly good story despite the characters and their flaws. Yes, out of all the books I have read by Ms. O’Donnell this is my least favorite and probably one I won’t read again but still I rated the story 3.5 or rather 4 stars since we can’t rate a half stars and would get other works of Ms. O’Donnell.
For me;the plot is good,an interesting one actually. But this book couldn't capture me. The feelings was not as touched compare to her other works. It's a surprise to know that this was not her very first book. Care for a revised version Ms.O'Donnell? I still love all your characters and how you share their thoughts , their reasons and their feelings for us..readers..that we don't have to wonder.
If anyone want to give a start on Ms.O'Donnell's books, I gladly recommend "The Lady and the Falconer". After that it's your choice to pursue.
