There are a few things that made me give this 4 stars. The author uses some foreign words throughout this book. A few of the words are explained but the rest are not. A big help would have been a word guide explaining the definitions of each of the foreign words. Also, I felt that I would have understood the novel better if there had been a foreword explaining the time period and customs in which the story takes place. There was a time in the book that the characters moved locations and I re-read it and realized there was nothing to alert the reader that they moved. Overall, it is a nice book with a good story line, it just takes a while to get there. (I also feel it is important to note that there are descriptive sex scenes in the book but the characters are married).
I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
The blurb does not due this book justice. I thought this book was awesome. The story has depth and I liked being swept back in time. The plot is great. I found the mystery and romance to be different than your normal romance. that is a good thing. Pay attention as Traitor's Daughter gives you the unexpected. The writing and characters Heledd and Garmon were exceptional. At times I wanted to hit Heledd over the head as she was so stubborn and did not see what was right in front of her. I found myself up after midnight trying to finish this page turning story. But I had to put the story down as I needed sleep. I finished it the next day and was so happy when everything was brought to a satisfying ending. I find myself thinking about this story days later.
The a few things that I had a hard time with was that a few times you would be in one location and then in another location and I was not sure how we got to the new location. The other was some words I had no clue about. I don't like to stop and look words up. It would have been nice to have a list of the words and meanings in the beginning of the book.
This book does contain mild descriptive sex after marriage for those who like to know.
