Editorial Reviews


"Rendfeld skillfully presents what might have been facts, and entertains the reader at the same time."--Shalisse Lewis,

"... a modern take on a Sir Walter Scott type of romance, and one that will work for a modern audience."--Historical Novels Review

"... Engaging narrative. Steady pace. Strong, living characters. Evocative sense of place and time. A comforting return to the world of chivalry and morality, with defined heroes and villains."--Andrea Connell, The Queen's Quill Review

"... a pleasure to dive in to a multi-layered tale."--Publishers Weekly*
*Publishers Weekly is an independent organization. Its review was written based on a manuscript version entered in the 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award competition, in which The Cross and the Dragon was a quarterfinalist.

"Kim Rendfeld has an addictive style of writing. The strong characterization, not only of the hero and heroine but a number of minor characters, held my interest, and I took particular pleasure in the originality of the setting. The Cross and the Dragon is a book I truly enjoyed reading."--Roberta Gellis, author of the Roselynde Chronicles

From the Author

Here is why I think you will love The Cross and the Dragon.

The heroine, Alda, is strong-willed, intelligent, wise, and compassionate, but what I admire most about her is her courage. Her love for Hruodland is so strong that she gives him her most precious possession, a dragon amulet, to protect him, even though she believes it makes her more vulnerable. And she will sacrifice anything, even her own safety, to keep the people she loves from danger.

The Cross and the Dragon will entertain multiple audiences. Readers of historical fiction will appreciate the medieval politics and details of daily life--re-created from annals, letters, scholarly books and articles, folk tales, and other resources. The love story will appeal to romance readers, and fantasy readers will relish the talisman, the characters' belief in magic, and sword fights.

Reviewers have called The Cross and the Dragon "compelling" and "a powerful tale." Who am I to disagree?
