Flath is a gypsy warrior leading his army of soldiers into a battle to dethrone the evil queen.
Rhiannon is catured by Flath and his men. She is a handful, always trying to escape and has a terrible stubborn streak. Flath tries helps her on her journey and finally makes her realize that she is the Warrior Empress.
Rhiannon finally is finding her strengths and the magical powers that bestow her through the stone her mother had left her.
Will Rhiannon finally come face to face with the evil queen? Will her knight leave her or will he stand by her side?
This is an amazing story that kept me intrigued with the characters and the action throughout the book. I would definitely recommend this book.
The Empress of Ventra (The Sword of the Rhiannon Series Book 1) ends in a slight cliffhanger. The War of Gypsy Book 2 is now available.
I'm volunteering an honest review for an advance reader's copy.
Like most crossover fantasy the protagonist must first come to terms and accept the strange new world she finds herself in. She knows only that her father has been kidnapped and she must free him from the usurper queen who holds the realm of Beaynid under her evil rule. Along the way, she discovers her heritage and a man to love. The novel provides a fast-paced series of events that push Rhiannon to discover her inner strengths. All the while flashbacks of a previous life, long forgotten, emerge to bind her to this new world.
As a debut novel, the author hits the right notes and provides a compelling story I found leaving me wanting to know more. The characters are early in their development and no doubt will become more complex as the story develops.
I have always enjoyed crossover fantasy from authors such as Joel Rosenberg and Stephen R. Donaldson. It has been a while since I’ve read one and I welcomed Beckwith’s tale. I must mention that the story suffers from several editing errors but I suspect that will soon be corrected. This is a good start to a new series.
Disclaimer: I have met Melissa E. Beckwith in the Science Fiction and Fantasy Authors Facebook public group because I am also an author. This was a freely purchased novel on my part with my review freely given without solicitation.
I cannot wait till the sequel is written.
The Empress of Ventra, is not usual my haunt. I'm into romance novels all the way. This hardly had any of that in it, but it didn't much need it. I was caught up in all the roadblocks Rhiannon had to go through from page one, the connections she made along the way, and the overall splendor of being thrust into her world.
Easily the richest thing I've read in a while.
