If you read one Medieval Romance this year-this is the one.
However, there were also elements in this story that I did not like. For starters, there were some inconsistencies between this story and "The Dark One". I find it inconceivable that the submissive child Trenton was, grew to be a confident leader of men. I mean he defer to Dane in all things as a child when he was not only older, but by far more powerfully built. Also in Darak Moon Remington is referred as to having "freckled skin", a fact that has nothing to do with her advanving years. Yet in her own story "her skin was as white as pure cream" and that was a direct quote. I know, very trivial, but still and inconsistency. And lastly I never like it when the hero has been in love before, though I'm glad that Ms. Le Veque did not dwell on this fact, as she had done in some of her other books.
I like this story for what it was not for what it pretended to be: a romance story. To me this was a well told saga of family and friendships, with just enough romance inseted-in to keep it interesting. There was also a lot of repetition, for instance the reader is told again and again about Lysabeth sad marriage and her husband demise. And there was not enough interaction between the couple. In the final analysis I found Lysabeth & Trenton's love lack luster, it was missing that intangible quality that makes a romance magical. Yet I still gave it 4 Stars because I was spared reading about a heroine pining away for a man who does not want to love her.
SPOILERS TO FOLLOW: However, I almost gave "Dark Moon" 3 Stars. I was so upset to read about how my favorite historical romance hero(Gaston de Russe) was pathetically weaken by old age and a terminal illness. Yes, we all get sick and old (except for an untimely death of course) and eventually die, but I just don't want to read about it. It spoils for evermore (at least for me) the HEA on his own story: "The Dark One". Authors and readers alike, know, that every single historical romance character, we have read about. is long in his/her grave. But Oh why remind us? We did not even get the pleasure of seeing Gaston and Remingto inter-act with each other, they did interact with other characters in the story, but never between the two them. The fact of Gaston's impeding death will be keeping me far away, from Dane's story, for I fear it might just take place during the tellling of "Dark Steel".
