The main characters, Tadhg and Tisa, were over shadowed. They were left out so often to further other characters that they almost didn't exist. Tadhg was like meathead (comic book world) where love was concerned.
Tisa's father knowingly sold her to a guy who liked men and a lecherer, for protection of his clan. Her husband, Darragh, was known to like men. His father, Aodh, agreed to his son marrying Tisa because he really wanted Tisa for himself and made advance on her person right in front of , not only Tisa's father, Roland, but her new husband, Darragh, and his band of hoodlum men.
Tisa had stated that, like her sisters, she would refuse her father's wish for this marriage, but then she turned around and honored his wish so as not to embarrass him.
This author emasculated and unmanned her main guy. Tadhg was a warrior but not for his lady. He neither fought for, protected nor defended Tisa. He didn't seem to know how to. He showed more interest in his sister's love life and wellbeing than his own or Tisa's.
Sean was the guy for me. Sean was the hero. Tadhg was a wimp and Tisa didn't seem to know what she wanted. Just like her name sounds, the author used her as a man-tease nearly being taken by force umpteen times, always being touched in one way or another. By the time Tisa and Tadhg did have sex, It's was like so what. Everyone else had already had done, so it was no big deal. By the end of the book, they didn't even seem important.
After Aodh and Darragh were killed. The author wrote about respect for Aodh, the chieftan. This poor excuse for a man was a murderer, a rapist, an adulterer, a child abuser; you name it and this guy was it. This was misplaced respect. And as for Tisa's sometime protection from her husband. He has sex with men right in front of her. His protection ended with the next willing guy who was closest to him. This is twisted respect.
With the exception of Sean, this author emasculated most of her main guys. Even John, the Norman warrior. He comes in so masculine and swaggering. The conquering hero. No long after, the author has him involved in some stupid dialog with some woman and later lounges into a full tirade about his paternity.
I dislike this story immensely and can't wait to delete it. The couple on the cover could have been anyone. He and the scenery looked good. She look. UGH. The title seemed to be thrown into the story like a last minute remembrance. Oh yeah. Here is the of the title.
This novel does have a scene of cheating, even though Tisa's first marriage was never consummated. Still the reasoning behind the infidelity did not sit well with me. Outside of that, I was pleased with the novel. There were many characters in the novel. Sometimes the secondary characters over shadowed the hero and heroine. The plot is simple and easy to follow. The subplots were nicely tied up. I feel this book is a stand alone novel even though it is volume 4.
I think the author thought long about what life was like in that time period. There are a few things I question, but on the whole, I found it to be interesting, and a thoughtful creation. I would suggest a footnote though for the many old English/Irish words that had no explanation. Even My Shakespeare plays have footnotes that help me understand Middle English, and we are even farther back here!
