Ms. Karlsen writes a gripping tale of two Knights transported forward through time and forced to adapt to modern, strange and foreign times. Each handling their situations differently. One blinded in battle, the other blinded by his desire to find a way back.

Even though the second Knight, Marchand, isn't the nicest person, Ms. Karlsen has you still caring for the pompous guy. Stephan on the other hand is sexy, strong, and very likeable.

Esme is asked to help Stephens adjust to being blind but she

A knight of old, Stephen Palmer's life has taken a different turn. One minute, he's charging through the French enemy lines. The next, he finds himself astride a bed in a hospital wounded the point he isn't sure if he'll truly survive. The kicker? The year is no longer 1356.

Stuck in modern times, Stephen is well out of his element. Everything around him has changed, and he's forced to learn everything he needs to know as quick as he can. It doesn't matter that he's come from another time and pla

Back in the day , BR (before reviews), I read A LOT of historical romances. Those still are my very favorite sub-genre of romance. I love knights, lords and ladies. I love the time when life could be hard but chivalry prevailed. Knight Blindness is story of a knight, Stephen Palmer, who in the midst of battle is mysteriously brought forward into present day time. Thankfully he has a few friends from his time ( see books 1 & 2) who find him and are able to help him out. Seriously wounded and now

Wow! This book was amazing! I do not normally read modern time romance novels, but this was an exception as I am a sucker for medieval knights transported to modern time. I have always fantasied on how the knights would react when they see how the world is today. All the things probably would not considered to be deemed possible back in the 1300s. This story added a twist by making one of the knights experiencing the new world of year 2013 totally blind.

Fore notes:

I am going to just jump into my thoughts about the book for a moment before going on to things... But as I started reading the book I felt a bit lost and confused but I progress onwards until I hit chapter seven. I agree that the title did say that this book 3 in the series but as I started that chapter I had to get the others so I can understand this book. I do have to say to understand this book you will need to read the others in this series...

This brilliant story was simultaneously hilarious and heart wrenching. Karlsen’s brilliant storytelling draws you into a world that compares with no other, while remaining realistic and easy to relate to. This novel was well and eloquently written. I really appreciated the fact that I never felt like the author was talking down to her audience. The research behind this novel is out of this world. I was very impressed with the twist that Karlsen put on well-known battles throughout history withou ...more

4.5 Drops Review

Knight Blindness is book 3 in The Knights in Time series, and yes, it’s best to read them in order. Having said that, I absolutely loved this story. What happens when you take two men from the time of knights and swords and dump them into the middle of 2013? That’s a great question and one you get to travel along with to find how both the good knight and his arch rival deal with all the complex and downright bizarreness of the modern age.

I love reading how the out-of-time men per

I've read all of the books in this series and this one is by far my favorite! I love how Chris Karlsen made the hero less than perfect, but at the same time wrote him so perfect that I fell in love with him at the same time. I was also excited to read Marchands' tale because even though he was the villain, I found myself wanting him to find his place in life as well.

This book is so beautifully written that I feel as if I'm tearing through time with the knights, or living in the quaint trailer i

Another great read from Chris Karlsen!

This book shows you what real courage is all about. I couldn't stop reading as I followed Stephen through his struggles of a whole new world, and doing it blind by the way! He's sexy, strong and shows you that anyone can face there fears and move on.
I loved all the books in the Knight In Time series but this one was my favorite. The characters are so well written I even felt bad for the bad guy!

The idea of time travel -- whether to the past or the future -- has always fascinated me. Throw in some romance, and I'm sold! That's precisely what this novel is about, although the traveling is not scientifically detailed, remaining something of a mystery.

This is the third novel in Karlsen's "Knights In Time" series, which describes the adventures of several medieval knights who suddenly find themselves in the 21st century, without knowing how, except that there's a time portal somewhere....
This was my least favorite of the series so far. I'm not sure why except that I didn't really care about the two main characters until the very end. ...more

Usually time travel books involve going backwards in time, but this one involves two knights who go forward in time. They are on opposite sides of a battle and in the middle of the battle where one of them is dealt a blinding blow to the face, they are both sent forwards in time. Now they are trying to adjust to their new reality as well as figure out what happened to them. And, one of them is looking for the other to finish the battle once and for all.

Okay what's good about this tale? Its part of a series and the key supporting characters are well drawn and have already had time travel adventures, traveling back and forward in time. I like time travel books and wanted to like this one, but I don't.
Why do I dislike it?
Ever watched any of those bland, generic teen movies where the nice guy fancies a popular girl who is dating an equally popular but awful guy? Well no one in this book is in high school and all the characters are mature adults, b

Knight Blindness is the third installment in Karlsen’s The Knights in Time series. I have read the first two books and, as always, the author doesn’t disappoint.

The story begins at the Battle of Poitiers, France, in 1356. English knight Stephen Palmer charges into battle when he is suddenly struck by the enemy. In that instant, he plummets through time and when he wakes up, wounded and confused, he finds himself in a hospital in 2013. Not only that, but blind due to his wound. His manner of spea

Recommends it for: fans of historical romance or historical fiction
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. Knight Blindness is the third book in a series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but the reader can tell there has been a story prior to this one. The characters in the novel refer back to events that took place prior to the beginning of this story. This novel was well written and did not have editing errors like so many books do today, it was a refreshing change. The plot was well written and the author pulled the different threads in the ...more

I read more or less avidly through the first 3/4 or so. Then the gratuitous sex scenes turned me off rather than on. I plugged ahead and was disappointed when Stephan started acting as much an ass as Roger and Esme turns from strong woman into panting sexpot. The scene when Roger stalks Stephan read like a Wile E. Coyote cartoon.

I really did like the historical references and how Stephan copes so well with adapting to a different time and to blindness. Chris did a great job on the history and sy

I enjoyed the first two books and I wondered how it could get better but it did. Chris outdid herself. Stephen and Roger found themselves thrust into a different century and had to learn how to deal with everything. Stephen was lucky that he had friends to help him deal with everything that had happened. Roger made his way on his own. The two eventually meet up again and I didn't expect the turn of events that did happen. This book was very enjoyable and I am loving this series. I can't recommen ...more

I liked the odd twist of having two knights thrown forward in time trying to figure out what the hell is going on .
you have your loyal one who's a knight at heart then the one who just wants to try and fit in.
the story flows nicely and you jump right in and just go for a ride.

Chris Karlsen pens "Knight Blindness" in a time traveling plot filled with historical facts. The author's characters were very well developed, believable, unique and you will find yourself drawn to them. An extremely intriguing book that will captivate you from the start. Highly recommended top all historical romance fans.

This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.
Fascinating story about a time traveling soldier. Granted it wasn’t on purpose. I loved the mystery and the romance. It was a fabulous read.

I give this story 4 out of 5 clouds.
