After being tasked with caring for a wounded English knight the same night her mentor is mysteriously killed, the intrigue and passion bubbles to the surface and you cannot put the book down until you know what happens next.
Review: This one ended up on my DNF list. I know! I began reading it, got a few pages in and then my kobo had a major accident and now I can’t read anything! It’s annoying me that all I can do now is download books off the kobo instead of get them through e-mail and plug them into kobo. So, since I hate reading on the PC and prefer either paper form of iphone, I haven’t cracked it open yet. However, TODAY is the Best Seller for a Day Promotion for this book and so I couldn’t NOT post something about it. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book, from sexy guys to mysterious powers, and the idea of a character that’s a Druid does intrigue me, though it’s also making me cringe a little bit since I know some the mythology is going to be off. (I will one day rant about being a Druid among other Druids and how I got shunned by the more educated of the bunch, and now how I shun people who don’t bother to learn even the basics of Druidism, the real stuff and instead insist on making up things that are clearly not true about the tradition simply because adequate textual reference doesn’t exist. It does, but you have to know where to look, and you have to be part of a Druid organization like AODA, NOD, or OBOD to find those references.)
So if you want a fast paced book that keeps you on the edge of your seat, then this book is for you. I have yet to see a bad review of this book and I won’t be the first to post one. I have enjoyed Amber Scott’s other books and I know this one is another smash hit!
