Best for Ages: 15 and up for romance
Since I really enjoyed Duty, I jumped at the chance to review Honor. After all, I love how Rachel writes her romances. Yes, maybe there is a little more pre-marital kissing than I would choose to have in my life, but they are clean and sweet stories with characters that you can really cheer for.
This book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, as Elsa and Dentin deal with foes that come in many forms. I really hated every time I had to put down the book and work on a different task for any amount of time. It is one of those books that keeps you flipping pages to find out what is going to happen next.
Elsa was a sweet girl who is trying to save her family from the ruin her brother’s gambling has brought. She was such a well-developed character that felt very real. Her sweetness was what really stood out to me. So many female leads are I-can-do-it-myself type girls, and, while I don’t have a problem with that, it gets old. While Elsa did a lot, she allowed others to help her.
Dentin was pretty awesome himself. He was a man of honor (the title really does tell you a lot), who is a bit rough around the edges. No, he isn’t mean, he just isn’t sociable, but he finds himself drawn to helping Elsa and loses his heart in the process. I really liked what Rossano did with his character.
I cannot say enough about this story. It was just such a joy to read. It had an historical feel to it, even though it was really non-magical fantasy. It also had a faith element that wasn’t strong, but added a nice touch.
I highly recommend this to those who like romance, good writing, and books that keep you turning pages.
I received this book from author in exchange for my honest review. I was under no obligation to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are entirely my own.
Plot – Grade A
The premise of this book rests on Dentin’s attempt to balance his personal honor with the orders of the king as well as hunting for murderers and traitors in his position of Securer of the Realm. Dentin is a self-professed man of honor but he is challenged not only by the difficulty of his latest task but also by Lady Elsa Reeve. Elsa has been treated like a pawn by her own family for years but she has a strong and loving spirit too, which steals away any preconceived notion that she’s your typical damsel in distress. Think medieval-esque Darcy and Elizabeth and you have a good glimpse into their contrasting yet complimentary temperaments. The dynamic between these two characters is definitely part of what makes the plot, which ranges from initial intrigue surrounding Dentin’s unpleasant task to a murder to treason, mesh well together. As compelling as each of the elements in the plot are on their own terms, Dentin and Elsa’s personalities and their brewing relationship really glues it together as a whole. A number of familiar faces from Duty show up in this book and there are passing references to events that occurred in that book that are now influencing characters and events in Honor five years later and while reading the first book enriches the experience for this one, Honor is able to stand on its own.
Content – Grade A
This is a clean fantasy. The romance between Dentin and Elsa builds up slowly and sweetly with their attraction becoming clear even though they both spend about half the book reminding themselves that they really shouldn’t be falling in love right now, especially Dentin.Read more ›
15+ for pre-marital kissing and some adult themes.
When Rachel Rossano asked me to beta read her newest title, Honor, I was very pleased to do so. I had heard some great things about her books before and was very happy to peruse one of them myself.
Honor is a fantasy title centered around an authentic-feeling medieval country. While the story is not historical, many aspects of it closely follow true medieval traditions and modes of life. Since my usual genre is historical-fiction, I was pleased to find that (minus detailed descriptions) the story bordered more on historical-fiction than fantasy.
I have to say I really enjoyed the plot. The suspense kept me turning pages, but was not overly intense. I loved the protagonists and the antagonists really riled me! Elsa's predicaments and struggles at the hands of her craven brother; Dentin's struggles with finding himself in love and caught between his conscience and duty to a honor-less king; the overall picture of two people finding each other in the midst of their trials and a nation's conflict - everything tied together to create an enjoyable tale. Parts of it reminded me of El Cid and one man's commitment to honor. Without giving too much away, allow me to say that the story contains all of the trimmings of a good tale - romance, adventure, battles, danger, and just enough of the twists and turns of human emotion to cause one to really relate to the characters.
The one thing I was slightly uncomfortable with was the pre-marital kissing. Yes, they were betrothed, but, as this was not a real medieval tale where betrothal was basically marriage, I felt it went a bit far.Read more ›
