Pretty good until the completely unbelievable plot twist.
will keep you guessing as to who Michael really is.
This is a quick read. Good to pass the time and be frivolous on the weekend.
Fletcher gets better with each book love this series.
I really enjoyed this story. The first of this series "Legendary Warrior" was good, and this one was even better. You got to revisit the characters from the first book, which normally is short-lived and seems like filler. The story line was fun, sweet, and romantic. 5 stars.
Great story line. Very different than most. Holds interest until very end.
In the sixteenth century Scotland, using the power of the Church, Decimus kills Mary's parents, declaring they were heretics following pagan ways; he also affirms that Mary be ostracized as the daughter of heretics. THE LEGENDARY WARRIOR Magnus rescues the young Mary taking her to Ireland for safety. She lived peacefully there for the next dozen years.
When Mary is again endangered, Magnus sends his best protg, The Dark One, Michael to rescue a recaptured Mary. He succeeds in freeing the badly battered Mary who is unable to speak. Though he has rescued many people in recent years without looking back, something about Mary touches Michael's inner soul. Willing to risk his life too free those abused by the Church, Michael knows he would go to hell for her. Mary feels the same way as she wonders if she feels hero worship for her savior or simply is in love with him.
This engaging medieval romance uses an inquisition as a backdrop to a dark suspense romantic thriller. The return of Magnus (star of THE LEGENDARY WARRIOR) adds depth to understanding the likable lead couple though there reactions to dangerous situations seem to ho hum and accepting. Still readers will root for the beleaguered twosome to overcome their enemies and their doubts to forge a permanent binding relationship.
