Reviewer: "kcs-calif" (USA) -
This story was thoroughly entertaining! Roarke as the weary warrior who comes to understand the devastation he has caused in his 20 yrs of fighting. Melantha who has lost so many to war, yet finds herself drawn to a warrior (an enemy one). Roarke and Melantha are terrific characters, BUT I loved the MacKillions! Absent-minded Laid MacKillion, Thor the ancient council member constantly threatening to " grind the enemies bones to dust to make bread.", Magnus the old warrior who accidentally shoots Roarke in the bum and then can't stop bragging about it! They are wonderful! You can see how Roarke and his men come to care for them and want to protect them, even from their own clan the MacTiers. These characters are warm and funny. They ALL grow just from having been part of each others lives. Roarke and Melantha are both respected, strong leaders, yet unsure in love. A witty and wonderful tale! KCS

Pretty silly, not very historical - fluffy, but entertaining.
