I love this series and have been waiting for Penn's story for three long years! I am happy to say, this book was totally worth the wait!
Pennard "Penn" Bowen is the adopted son of Rhys Bowen, a scholar and treasure hunter. The book opens with Penn and his assistant Egg, finding a dagger and being confronted by a masked person with a gun, claiming the dagger is rightfully theirs. Penn easily overpowers the would be thief, only to lose the dagger to another band of villains and left tied up along with Egg and the first thief!
Working together they free themselves and introductions are made, the thief is Mrs. Amelia Forrest, granddaughter of Jonathan Gardiner - the antiquarian who found the Heart of Llanllwch - a stone that is said to be one of the Thirteen Treasures gathered by King Arthur and his knights. The Dagger is said to counteract the effect of the Heart. Amelia is upset that the dagger was lost and wants to go after it - but Penn tells her the dagger is a fake and that he believes the Heart is as well. Amelia is enraged, the Heart was her grandfather's greatest find and his legacy will be ruined if the Heart is fake. She will to work with him to retrieve the Dagger to prove that he is wrong!
This is the start of an amazing adventure and along the way they will encounter danger, secrets, heartache, betrayal and Amelia and Penn will both have to deal with shocking surprises that could change everything they have believed.
The book is a well written, fast paced action/adventure romance that will keep you turning pages as fast as you can. There are heart stopping moments, steamy love scenes, long kept secrets revealed, cameos with Cassie, Andy, Cate, Elijah, Rhys, Margery & Gideon, really nasty villains, a bit of magic, treasure and finally a hard earned HEA.
This is the third book in the series and it can be read as a stand alone title, but I would recommend reading the series in order - they are all fantastic, so no hardship there :) - so you have a better understanding of "The Order" and the history behind the Thirteen Treasures. I highly recommend this book, but I will state that I dropped off 1/2 a star because the book does have adultery - This is a completely personal reason and in no way reflects on the author's writing ability.
There was plenty of action to hold my interest. The characters were well developed and the plot moved along without dragging.
If you've read any of her books in the past you'll like this one.
I was given an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
Penn Bowen, adopted son of Rhys and Margery Bowen (from book one) works for the museum and finds antiquities as well as track downs historic mysteries. He's got a lead on the dagger that's one of the 13 Treasures of Camelot. These treasures are fiercely guarded and kept hidden by The Order, the descendants of the Knights of the Round Table. Within that group there is The Camelot Group faction that will do anything to gain and these items to use the power for themselves. Penn's sister Cate found The Flaming Sword in book 2 and he knows The Heart is in the Museum, although it's fake. He bumps into Amelia Gardiner, granddaughter of the finder of this heart. She's also trying to locate the dagger to add it to the museum with her grandfather's heart.
I found this adventurous tale riveting and the plot surprised me several times. I love when that happens. There was much puzzle solving, action scenes that I found believable and delicious romance. I can't wait to read the conclusion in Gideon's story. Thank you Darcy for this story and the opportunity to read the freely given ARC for my honest review. Just LOVED it!
