A typical Norman/Saxon start to the story. The Norman's overcome the Saxon's in battle and immediately show their dominance by terrorizing and killing the villagers. They are brutal with no regard to age (they kill the youngest to the oldest) or religious buildings (the abbey is completely trashed). Rorke FitzWarren is a brutal warrior and even have the nerve to capture a healer (Vivian) and threaten her people if she doesn't heal the new king of England. Of course, she falls madly in love with ...more

I never finished this series so I'm rereading the first 3 then continuing on. I really love the author's writing style and descriptions for characters as well as settings. It really pulls you in and the lore is just fantastic. So glad I was able to get a copy for my kindle. I did wish that one of the villians (won't spoil it here) was more prominent in the book, but overall some of the suspense kept me on my toes and that's ok.

From Fantastic Fiction: Set in England in the time of William the Conqueror, the first novel in this marvelous series that explores what might have been if Merlin had had three beautiful daughters, each possessing just a touch of magic, resolved to use her special skills to battle evil, and determined to find love.

A very enjoyable book.

I love Arthurian stories. This one was not quite what I expected. Although I enjoyed it I would have preferred more about Merlin and Arthur.

This is a fairly quick and enjoyable medieval romp with delightful fantasy undertones.
I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

A very nice example of the genre. Exactly what one reads these for. I will be trying the next in the series.

Not quite a bodice ripper but almost. Captive falls for capturer. Genuinely enjoyed reading it and enjoyed the characters but feel they are not fully developed.

Sometimes you need cheesy, smutty historical romance books in your life.

This was a great book, the first romance book I ever read that involved mystical things. Had me craving for the rest of the series which was as wonderful as this one.

This is a very good book for those of us who want to escape the world for just a few minutes. Not much truth to it but a real good adventure read.

It got my interest from the beginning, but left me wanting more from the story.
