Featured Reviews

This book is the third book in the series and going into this book, I had not read the previous two. The story seemed to continue from the previous book and it took me a little bit to get a feel for the characters. Once I had figured them all out, the story really drew me in. I was transported to a world of kings, queens, knights and battle. I enjoyed Alfred's story and cannot wait to find out what happens next! As I await the fourth book in this series, I will definitely be going back and reading the first two.
