I liked this book even better than the first one! I was already a fan of Ireic in The Crown of Anavrea, and it was fun to get to know him better. He was so generous and loving and protective--just an all-around wonderful guy!

Lirth was really good, too, and I admired her strength and peace even in the midst of difficult circumstances. She definitely made a good queen, even with her limitations, and I liked the way we got to see how she handled them--things like recognizing someone by the way they

King of Anavrea is a sweet romance that I enjoyed. The story is lovely and filled with deep characters and faith. Lirth is filled with faith in Kurios, the god of this story world, despite all the pain she has had to endure through losing her sight and being kidnapped. Ireic’s faith, on the other hand, grows through the story as a result of his inability to do everything and the impact Lirth’s faith had on him. I appreciated that I could see the growth of the characters in this way and others.

If you love a memorable story about King who doesn't want to be king, a arranged marriage, a blind Queen, a huge rebellion and someone who wants to kill the King and Queen and a sweet romance and friendship. Then this is the book for you. Will the killer be successful? You must read The King of Anavrea to see. I will say that I was mesmerized with Ireic and Lirth quickly. They had to learn to trust each other and rely on one another in a unique set of circumstances. They really put the others ne ...more

Masterful Storytelling!

Another wonderful read from an incredibly talented author! If you enjoy reading about castles and knights and heroic characters, you definitely want to check out Rossano’s books. She skillfully weaves faith and fantasy together in such a compelling way - you just can't stop reading!

I literally couldn’t put the book down because I had to know what happened next! I won’t give away any spoilers, but the thing I loved the most about this book was the way Ireic treated Lirth. A

I really enjoyed being plunged back into this fantastically medieval world full of adventure, politics, and intrigue. The characters continued to fill in a rich world with people you grew to care about. Though there seemed to be more focus on the plotline and moving the overall story of the series along, rather than deep character development, it was a fun read. The romance was a little stilted and odd for me, but sweet nonetheless. It was a very interesting read that was enjoyable. The overall ...more

I definitely enjoyed this story! The captivating plot and masterfully developed characters made for a great late-night journey. I very much liked how this story tied in with the first of the series (The Crown of Anavrea) but was also a very strong stand alone book.

Another great work by Rachell Rossano! Go get yourself a copy!

While set in a fictional place, this has the feel of historical fiction. The characters are enjoyable. It is something new for me to read about a blind princess/queen. I can t wait to start book three. Note that book 3 hasn't been properly entered into the Goodreads database and does not come up (currently) when you click on the series link. However, if you scroll through the author' books, you will see it.

I love Rachel Rosanno's books. There are usually a lot of editing problems to overcome, but the stories are so easy to climb into and get lost. The main characters in this story are both very vulnerable characters, but in the end show incredible strength against what seem to insurmountable odds.
Full review to come.

Another of Rachel Rossano’s books, which I picked up because of how much I enjoyed Wren and Duty. I also picked it up because it’s another medieval-esque fantasy romance dealing with an arranged marriage.

Plot – Grade A

I really enjoyed the intrigue in this book. While the romance is important, there is a significant amount of political intrigue occurring due to Ieric and Lirth’s arranged marriage. I thought the twists were well-handled and the dual plot lines melded together well. I was able to f

Set on another world, where kingdoms have tenuous relationships with each other, this is the second story in the series.

Read full review in the 2015 February issue of InD’tale Magazine.

Not my favorite. I enjoyed the story and the strong characters. I did not enjoy the come to Jesus moments. I wish the mystery of who the bad guy was and who he was working for would have been more clearly resolved.

I was born in the northern midwest to a missionary pastor and his wife. As the oldest of four, I learned to be mature and responsible at an early age. That, however, did not prevent me from having constant flights of fancy. In my early teens, those flights of fancy began to make it to the page. I have always loved reading and constantly had my nose in a book growing up (fuel for those fanciful fli ...more
