Prince Reagan has a problem, his mother Queen Finell has killed his father the king. he also is surrounded by his father's court, people who may want to keep his father's plan alive to kill him. Not sure who he can trust he sends for his sister in law's best friend, the healer Gwen Alexander. Can one woman make a difference?

I loved the storyline for Healing Gilvary. The plot was fast moving and had a few twists. The characters are multidimensional and I love the way Ms. Boyd weaves the plan of s

Very enjoyable story. We get to see much more depth of character from these two MCs than what was shown in book 1. I can't wait to read the final book in this series! ...more

Healing Gilvary, written by Andrea Boyd, is book 2 in the Kingdoms of Kernley Series.

This series is not a typical read for me as I don’t usually read “fantasy” books. I believe this series is more “steampunk” than “fantasy” per se. I found the book quite historical in the feel of the read, but the steampunk side of it was fun to read--the more modern approach that the author was able to portray throughout the book. A modern historical fiction is how I would classify it .

This is a really cool clean, steampunk romantic fantasy trilogy. Yes, a lot of adjectives in there, but readers have to go into the series knowing what they’re getting. These are not historical novels. They are steampunk, which blends the modern with the old and twists both into something out of time entirely. They’re fun and quirky with fantastic characters. I loved all three and devoured them back to back in under a week! Strong characters who face extraordinary trials and learn the depth of t ...more

4 1/2 Starts! Great book. Loved Gwen and Reagan's story! The continuation of the Kingdoms of Kearnley keeps you interested to the very end and seeking more! There is romance, troubles to overcome and learning to put your trust in God's plan for your life. I can't wait for the next book. ...more

King Coman is dead

And his queen, Finelle is dying. Prince Reagan has summoned Gwen Alexander of Aisling to see if she can nurse his mother back to health and hopefully he could also persuade her stay in Gilvary by his side as his wife.  Until a young woman and her father claim Reagan is the father of her child. Gilvary law states that any unmarried maiden that found herself with child could force the father into marriage if he could not prove his innocence three months after the child's birth.

Wow Andrea Boyd did it again, she hit another one out of the park. This book has so much excitement I could hardly contain myself. This series is absolutely amazing. I honestly wasn’t sure I was going to like it with the whole King & Queen scenario but I am so glad that I took a chance because I think this series is actually my favorite out of all of Andrea’s books because there is so much excitement, and I love the battle scenes. The love that Reagan and Gwen share is so real that you can feel ...more

Drama and fun Characters

I really liked Gwen. She had so much to offer. A great healer in her own rights along with compassion and kindness. Reagan was a great character as well. I especially liked Rian his little brother. Take the time to read this you will not regret it.

So enjoyable!

I definitely recommend this book. The characters were well-written. Reagan and Gwen belong together, the story from the beginning through to the end shows that. I would definitely read more by Andrea Boyd.

Intrigue, suspense and romance

I LOVED the characters.
I was glad she could help Dian with archery.

I really disliked Angus. I loved the way she got him.

Now, I will read no one and three.

Another great story in this series and such a long book that I enjoyed!! This one is Gwen and Reagan's story and it was just so true to their characters :) Gwen is Brianna's lady's maid and best friend taking on the job as healer for Gilvary now that the vicious king is dead and Reagan is the reluctant heir to the throne.

About halfway through this plot, a scandal presents itself to Reagan but you can tell it's fake yet HOW is Reagan going to resolve it? TRULY loved how it played out, where Reag

Great book. Great characters.
This is the second book in a series, and although I didn't read the first book, it was still an easy feat for me to find my place in the Kingdoms of Kearnley. Ms. Boyd is a talented writer and this was a lovely adventure. Christian Fantasy is not my preferred genre but I fell in love with Gwen and Reagan's story.

I was so excited to read Healing Gilvary after reading Securing Aisling. I think Gwen and Reagan may be my favorite in the series so far. I love the lessons they had to learn, the romance and courtship they went through, and the mystery and intrigue. All of it made for a page turner. Can't wait for the 3rd book! ...more
