The saga of the Legendary Bastards of the Crown continues in Ruthless Knight. Rook lives in the catacombs of a beneath the ruins of a priory destroyed by the Scots years before, and is known as Rook the Ruthless. He and Reed feel betrayed when Rowen marries Cordelia and comes to terms with their father. They are determined to continue raids on the king, but without Rowen and his pirates, things don’t go well. Rook meets Calliope as she makes her way back to her uncle’s castle through the catacombs where he makes his home. He is wounded, and she wants to help him. They come to know each other on her subsequent trips into the catacombs and come to love each other. Callie convinces Rook to help the villagers whom her uncle neglects and abuses. He begins to understand his brother’s motives for making an alliance with the king and struggles to decide if that’s what he wants as well. A tournament for Callie’s hand in marriage, a botched raid to steal from the king during the tournament, and confrontation with the king will bring him to a decision. The king is determined to make peace with all three of his sons. Will Rook come to terms with king? The conclusion to this one is full of twists, turns, and surprises.
Once again Elizabeth Rose gives us a well-written story with strong complex characters and a solid plot with challenges, suspense, and romance.
Rook the Ruthless, is considered the Lord of the Underworld, he is the middle triplet. Who is ruthless, resides in the catacombs of an old ruined monastery, and prefers the darkness of night to the light of day. Determined to revenge their father, Edward III, they reek havoc on the King. Rook and Reed believe their older brother, Rowen, has betrayed them with the King, for the love of a woman. How could he?
Enter, Calliope, a young Lady who resides with her greedy, and abusive uncle. She is full of life, trying to help the villagers, who her uncle abuses as well, in many ways. And finds a wounded Rook in the catacombs, while returning to the Castle, through the catcombs to the dungeon. Her uncle keeps her locked within the Castle walls. She is very Defiant. Curiousity, gets the better of her, she comes across Rook in his room.
Well written with well-developed and captivating characters and an intriguing storyline. "Ruthless Knight", was more romantic than action and battles. With this said, however, it is captivating and intriguing to watch Rook and Calliope's
story come to life. Can Calliope bring Rook toward the light, and bring him to a full flame? Will Rook, finally forgive his father, afterall it has been two decades, each have grown a bit? Or lose his true love and light of his life, to bitterness and revenge?
I enjoyed the scene during the tournment for Callope's hand in marriage. Rook is determined to win. Then the truth of possible treason, treachery and greed comes forth. Will Callope, her friend, Wardell, accused of releasing information be tried for treason, as well as Rook, or will the king pardon them. Afterall, Wardell is not the one releasing the information? A bit complex at times, and very intriguing.
Ms. Rose, has written a tale of revenge, bitterness, treachery, possible treason, intrigue, secrets, betrayal, light vs darkness and the power of true love. Romantic, compelling and powerful! I found myself reading way into the night, wondering how in the world will Rook and Calliope, find their HEA.
I wondered how Ms. Rose would help Rook and Reed forgive their older brother, Rowen, for what they believed was betrayal. I must say I loved how she managed to fix Rook and Rowen's relationship. Now, poor Reed feels alone and betrayed by both his brothers. I can't wait to read Reed's story, Book 3, "Reckless Knight" coming in March 2017!
What a fantastic read! A not to miss English Medevial Romance!
Ms. Rose manages to delight and intrigue her readers with her historical details, her charactizations and her captivating storyline. Another well done Medevial Romance. Strongly recommended to Medevial Romance fans of intrigue, adventure and passion. Pick up your copy soon, you will be glad you did.

when his brother, Rowen, married for love, left his brothers and gave his loyalty to his father, the king. Rook and his youngest brother, Reed, have tried to keep the legend of the "Demon Thief" alive, but it won't work without the Rowen. In his last unsuccessful raid, he took a hit in his leg. He is now staying in the catacombs in order not to get caught.
Lady Calliope, from the castle is smuggling out food to the villagers since her Uncle won't help them. She is caught in the rain and heads to the catacombs to get home before her Uncle finds her missing. Rook spots her and kidnaps her. What a mistake!!!! Calliope not only gets away, but she also bites Rook. They both finally realize that they have nothing to fear from each other and Calliope even tends to Rooks wounds.
Now the story starts to get interesting and you can feel there is something wrong in the castle. Of course I'm not going to give more of the story away. This is a fast reading book you can have finished in one or two nights. There are parts you can feel yourself being immersed in. Also you will get more history lessons by reading this book. The author always does her homework. Take it from me, if you like this type of romance this is the book for you.
