Atticus de Wolfe known as the lion of the north upon hearing that his beloved brother Titus has been killed at the infamous battle of Towton learns that Titus actually is murdered which Atticus is unable to prevent and upon Titus’ dying request asks Atticus to marry his wife Isobeau.
Even though this book had what I loved best battles described fully in gory but horrific detail, vengeance, betrayal, heartbreak and a sweet love story all rolled into one. I was not ready for the vast amounts of crying I did in this book. Ms. Le Veque painted a beautiful but sorrowful picture of not only war but there was quite a bit of heartrending emotion from all sorts of tragic happenstances littered throughout the book. That’s not to say the book isn’t splendid and fantastic which it is but at times I wondered how there could be a love story when there was quite a bit of sad depressing things happening along with large amounts of vengeance portrayed with not only the main male protagonist Atticus but the female heroine Isobeau as well. I guess in a sense I wanted more of a romance between the male/female character's despite the vast amounts of sexual tension between them both but the story however never lacks in its harrowing emotion. At first I really disliked Atticus’ vindictive behavior and how he treated Isobeau but as I read more into the book I really had to give him the benefit of the doubt; grief makes us do funny things especially lash out at the ones we care and love the most. Isobeau was no slouch either which I enjoyed how she could stand up to Atticus’s belittling behavior but was just a strong courageous beautiful woman suffering so many losses but she was able to take everything in stride which I couldn’t help but really admire her. I was a little sad to see the book end and wanted it to last a little longer though. Still Ms. Le Veque does not disappoint that I rated the book four stars, can recommend it especially for the critical historical fiction fanatics because it seems this book is very well researched and will definitely get more books from Ms. Le Veque!
Atticus de Wolfe is a strong and exceptional hero and Isabeau de Shera de Wolfe is a phenomenal heroine. There was never a slow moment in the story. The pace was really good. It truly moved me emotionally throughout. This story was worth every second spent on it.
I never give out spoilers, but what I will say is that these two characters go through some of the most heartfelt situations throughout the story. There are scenes that are truly intense, brutal, humorous and heart wrenching.
I read almost every day and I can sincerely say, Kathryn Le Veque is the only author who, time and time again, can draw such emotions from me while reading a story. It is truly an amazing feeling when you finish reading an exceptional story that can draw so many emotions from you. This author is brilliant!!!!!
I would highly recommend The Lion of the North to anyone who loves Medieval Romance.
Congratulations for this successful release. I cannot wait for this author's next masterpiece!

Admittedly some are spoiled a little by silly women characters and their childish behavior but overall this lady writes amazing stories filled with the great ( and the not so great) history of England.
I don't hesitate when one of this author's books are published on Kindle and simply order it right away as I know it will hold my attention and be worth my money. The Lion of the North is one of the good ones with no silly ladies and a strong heroine, it has to be said, the story overall is good and thoroughly enjoyable. Historical novels are not my favourite genre, but I never miss one of Kathryn's.
For a change this couple didn't jump into bed or love immediately so that was more believable and made their relationship more poignant. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book as I do almost all of Ms Le Veque's offerings. Keep them coming Kathryn !
