First of all, I have to say that this book is professionally edited, I was not bothered by any grammatical errors and I appreciate the amount of work put into this. I became so used to the lack of good editing (even for expensive books), that I must praise this, especially since this book was free.
The characters although few, are very well constructed. The plot is captivating and, although sometimes I felt the pace was too slow and focused on too many unnecessary details, is overall great. It made me cry and feel strongly for the main characters and I must say this is such a rare occasion for me (and I read quite a lot), that it made me cherish even more this book.
If you want to enjoy a medieval love story, which is a little bit unconventional and unlike the cheap cliches that are coming out lately in the historical romance section, this is the book for you.
I will definitely read more from this author.
Likewise, I really appreciate the grayness of all the characters. Antagonists do not have to be evil incarnate to make the reader sympathize with the protagonist, and I wish more authors understood that. It's so much more interesting to find out over time whether a character can be trusted and what their aims are. That also makes it a lot more understandable when the H/h make the mistakes they do. They make the best decisions they can with the knowledge they have. They are also pretty good at admitting their faults and weaknesses. Neither the H or h were perfect and they never pretended to be. Just as Eleanor said that Henry was a stronger person because he sailed in spite of his seasickness, I also felt the H/h were better people because of their sketchy pasts and/or weaknesses and fears.
My one critique is that, because I did love the H/h's interactions together so much, I wish they had spent more time together in the story. I was so sad when the book ended because it was wrapped up so quickly. Throughout the whole journey I kept anticipating spending more time with the delicious hero and the ending came before I was ready to say goodbye. Ah well, that's what daydreams are for.
Oh, and I should mention that the chemistry between the H/h is electric, but there are no overly descriptive love scenes. I was definitely hoping to see more, but again, I have a decent imagination. This story does include a bit of intense violence/abuse and adult themes that maybe not everyone would be comfortable with, but I feel like the morals and religious devotion of the main characters make it suitable for even Christian audiences, without being preachy.
