Merewyn can outshoot any of the clan’s archers; something she learned while in her youth as a self-defense against all men, having learned from her mother’s unfortunate past. What Merewyn hasn’t overcome is the stigma of being the product of that past. Returning to Talisand where she hopes to make her home once again Merewyn comes face to face with the boy, now fully grown, she once looked upon as her hero. Spending time with this man is quickly playing havoc with her heart but she knows that she will never be good enough for one of the King’s Knights and the son of the Red Wolf.
Sir Alexander of Talisand has learned his duties well serving the King as one of his knights. Returning to Talisand after a long battle Alexander is brought face to face with a girl from his past. He quickly becomes fascinated by this woman’s demeanor and skill with a bow. A fascination that turns into so much more, her background be damned. Called back into battle Alexander must work to convince the King that someone else can link his kingdom with Normandy lands. That may be easier than convincing his fair maiden that she belongs with him no matter the past.
From the prologue to the end Regan Walker does an outstanding job of drawing me into Alexander and Merewyn’s story. The extensive research Ms. Walker does shows in the detailed descriptions of the time which made me feel if I was there (starting with heart racing in the very beginning).
As the fourth book in her Medieval Warriors series, King’s Knight can be read as a stand-alone. However; take if from this reader book 1 – The Red Wolf’s Prize; book 2 – Rogue Knight; and book 3 - Rebel Warrior are every bit as good and not to be missed.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
Set in Talisand, in Northwest England in 1082, Sir Alexander, the son of the Red Wolf and Lady Serena of Talisand, returns home after winning the favor of King William Rufus for his distinguished fighting skills. The young knight, dubbed the Black Wolf, for his long black mane of hair, is still referred to as a ‘cub’ and feels the long shadow of his father’s great legacy. Yet, Sir Alexander has an easy charm with the women and an inheritance of youthful arrogance which leads him to believe he can possibly have any woman he wants.
Merewyn is not a high-born lady. The illegitimate daughter of the ruthless Norman invasion, she knows well that any lingering looks at the heir of Talisand cannot be anything more than wistful glances. Yet, Alexander stepped in and saved her from the humiliation and malicious intents of village boys when she was but an innocent girl. In that moment, he became the hero of her heart. Steeling herself against an unforgiving caste system as she approaches womanhood, she chooses her short bow as her closest companion – to assist in hunting; to prove a woman’s skill; and to protect herself, evermore. She would never be a victim.
When Sir Alexander returns home, his eyes sweep the bailey. After years being fostered in a neighboring estate and several battles, he seeks to inquire about one young woman who seems missing – Merewyn. So, this love story begins. For fans of Regan Walker, this fourth book in the series is filled with the intense history, portends of the future and the familiar characters we love so much, including Sir Renault (the Red Wolf), Lady Talisand, Sir Jamie (no longer a squire, but Captain of the house knights at Talisand), Maggie (the beloved cook who keeps us fed with her warmth as well as exquisite food), Maugris (the wise seer) and Steinar (Lady Serena’s brother and hero of Rebel Warrior). For new readers, step into the pages and fall in love with characters who commit to honor and who learn that love connects us all, no matter what our fates may seem to be
Cast against the landscape of medieval Britain, Scotland and Wales, this tale continues a tradition of courage, chivalry, court intrigue, honor and intense passion. For another endearing novel in the Warrior Series, I heartily give King’s Knight a five-star rating. Regan Walker does not disappoint in delivering a well-paced romance that beats the odds of its time.
