Starting off with the Battle of Hastings it soon had me wanting to read on and, as the book progressed, I found it more and more to my liking. The story was a fascinating mix of history, fact, author imagination, and a bit of magic power that was made quite believable.
I am happily giving this book 5 stars and it deserves every star and more. The main characters were well rounded and I quickly clicked with their personalities. It was a marvelous read, which I highly recommend.
The reader enjoyed this novel from the very beginning. It had just the right amount of a paranormal flair to fit in with the era in which the action takes place. The reference to King Arthur made the novel seem more real, because his legends are so popular. I liked the fact that Alain originally arrived at Kendra's acting as a squire partly to see if she would be a good catch or a wretched wench to be married to for the rest of his days. The novel is delightful! The glossary afterward is what spoiled it for this reader. Having had years of experience with the French language and it's pronunciation, it was distressing to see how many words were mispronunced in the glossary. This aside, it is a magical story and worthy of being read over and over again.
A refreshingly "clean" romance with a touch of magic. A 5 star read and highly recommended!
The characters were very well written. I thought Kendra's grief for her brother was a bit selfish, and melodramatic. She seemed to thrive on grieving for her brother.
Sir Robert and his friend are very engaging from the start of their subterfuge to becoming part of Kendra's family even before the romance really begins.
This was a surprising story that was rich in description, and in the history. The paranormal aspect is not heavy but the shape-shifter was a bit too much. It just did not fit in with the history, the mystery, or the story.
Aside from that, I have no complaints with the book. I loved the story and the characters. Alain was not what I expected. I was thinking that he would be a bit more jaded and rough. But he was a smooth person with the right amount of tenderness and softness. But he was man enough not to appear too soft. As for Kendra, she was a feisty one. I loved her spirit and her will. I gotta mention Ulfric too. He was a very good villain. He totally made me fall for him with his schemes and his evil mind.
The story's pace was a bit slow at the start but half way through it picked up. The mystery and the action and the political intrigue had me engrossed in the book. The writing was easy to read and descriptive enough to entice my imagination.The romance wasn't overdone and it was a fun book to read.
My rating : 5/5
My reread factor : 4/5
