‘My muscles hardened. And I attempted to clear my mind as I always did before I went into battle. I operated ruthlessly when I was singly focused on my enemy.’
Jody Hedlund has once again brought us a wonderful medieval story in this fourth contribution in her Knights of Brethren series. This is Torvald’s story, and what a story it is! I’ve been waiting for his and it did not disappoint. Torvald has vowed never to love a woman after his mother’s desertion. But he hasn’t counted on the Lady Karina, who is all goodness. They marry to add Karina’s wealth to him and save his estate.
In the midst of all this, Torvald must still join the search for the Holy Chalice in order to heal his queen. Much danger ensures as everything seems to turn in a way opposite from what is necessary. Both Torvald and Karina must confront the evil in Hardanger Forest if they want to push forward. And it will come at a great cost.
Come along as Hedlund brings the best yet in the series (my opinion) and we learn that true love sometimes sacrifices for others. I can’t wait for the next in the series!
My thanks to the publisher and author for a copy of this book. The opinion here is entirely my own.
‘How many people were going to die before this ended?’
I’ve been a fan of Dani Pettrey’s work since her first book years ago. They sit proudly on my shelves. This one is no exception to her action-packed suspense. The Coastal Guardians is a great series and I love it.
Join this amazing team as they try to stop a madman with a stolen weapon that could cause tremendous destruction if they don’t catch him first. There is a mass shooting that devastates the team, but it’s only the beginning of the havoc that falls in the wake of this diabolical maniac.
Pettrey deftly adds layers all along that serve to constantly bring more intrigue to the reader. The personal stories of those involved are great to watch as well. They struggle with real problems just like the rest of us, and they’ve allowed God into their lives and have His help with those problems. We also get a great secondary story as well as see old friends making an appearance. Very well done!
