Berlin Mansfield, a knave turned knight errant embarks on an adventure to rescue his lady, Princess Jennifer of Edinburgh, a high profile pacifist. She has been abducted by terrorists intent on keeping Ireland a divided nation.
The story gave me a much better understanding of the Irish question, but it was the heroic love story that enthralled me. Although Jennifer and Berlin do not end up living together, the reader knows he will always be faithful to his lady and that she has a champion for life. Interestingly, Jennifer is a modern version of the name Guinevere, for ever linked to Sir Lancelot, her own true knight..
The romantic in me fell in love with the hero, and the escapist revelled in the adventure. I loved it.
First off, I don't give stars away easily. Secondly, this is usually not the type of books I read.
Finally (indulge me), it is a standalone book that is complete but at the same time, I really really hope that a sequel follows that continues into the intrigue, political betrayals and most of all love conflicts that this book has ignited, finding a way to overcome the obstacles between the main characters.
Having said that, when I began the book, I had to adjust myself to give it a fair and unbiased shot and I'm sooooo glad I did. It begins with the story of Princess Jennifer, a noble, kind soul who becomes a widow (frankly, considering the man her husband was, she's so much better off) whose gentle but firm spirit and honest intentions lead her into making decisions that all others fear to make for the sake of her country. However, these bring about enemies who are just fine with the underlying chaos that the country faces, and opts (recklessly) to abduct the princess.
When Berlin Mansfield's character is introduced, (who's strength, character, hard heart but soft tone for the Princess he has never met), one's interest is kicked up several notches and your interest is permanently captured.
It is a story packed with action, thrills and well developed characters that draw you in (assassins, MI6, CIA etc), and the main story is laced with forbidden love between the princess and the second most wanted man after Osama Bin Laden,(in literal terms, good and evil fall in love). It is well integrated to provide an enjoyable reading experience for sexes, without it being all action or all romance but a perfect mixture of the two.
I'm not going to reveal anymore spoilers but its definitely a refreshing read from the various books out there whose plots have become so monotonous and similar.
You know there are some books you read and at the end, you feel like it was a waste of time? This is DEFINITELY not one of them. Enjoy!
