Me esperaba más de este libro, empezó bien y ha ido a peor.
los personajes más bipolares no podían ser, han sido pocos los momentos en que ellos dos me gustaran, tanto juntos como por separados. La historia se desinfla a mitad del libro y todo lo que va pasando se hace interminable.

Aburrido, no aporta nada. Otro Premio RITA que no entiendo.

3.5 Rating. Quick Review.

This was a well written medieval romance, with detail to history and setting (castle, dress, food, etc). The romance was nice, but at times a little over the top. Pacing was fair/good with some areas a bit slow.

Tess married a famous warlord, Kenric of Montague she could flee her stepfather/stepbrother and with hopes to someday reclaim Remmington Castle and return peace to her people.

Kenric, warlord and bastard to the king was pledged to beautiful Tess even though marri

Lady Tess desires to return to her home of Remington Castle, to return it back to the peaceful and safe haven it was supposed to be before her step father took control and in order to get it back she will have to marry a stranger...a man who is rumored to eat babies and women for breakfast...the fearful Kenric of Montague. At first Tess is highly resistant to the idea of marrying Kenric, she would prefer to be a nun over marri

2. y está claro que la romántica medieval, donde no aparezcan escoceses con Kilt, no me va nada.

Está bien, aunque me ha costado menos leer éste que el anterior, pero no mucho más. Ha llegado un momento de tanto "Perro del hortelano" por parte Kedric me ha parecido insufrible. Tanto golpe en el pecho en plan "yo tarzan, tu jane" me ha superado. Y siendo sincera conmigo misma, he de admitir, que justo ese comportamiento tannnnn masculino, era completamente normal en esas épocas, pero no n

Me habían hablado maravillas de este libro y, aunque no me ha decepcionado, me esperaba algo más. De todas formas, "El Señor de la guerra" es un buen libro que hará que te quedes pegado a él hasta que lo acabes.

I'm gonna say 2.5 but rounded down because it was a chore reading most of it.

Kenrick the martyr and Tess the moron.

the first 20% I'm OK but then we have the h's first TSTL moment (one of many).
Then she spends until 80% of the book in planning to leave the hero... not sure why, it made no logical sense and was especially nonsensical considering the times. Yeah.. gonna just walk to the king's palace or next, yeah just gonna walk to my uncles place in Scotland. 'Cause women back then had rights an

Al principio bien, pero luego me ha aburrido bastante. No digo que sea malo, ni que esté mal escrito, simplemente es que a mi la historia no me ha atrapado. No ha sido de esas lecturas en las que, aunque no te lleguen a atrapar los protagonistas, piensas "bueno, no me ha atrapado pero no está tan mal"

(10ª lectura del #RetoRita)

Otro premio Rita que me decepciona: Mejor 1ª novela de 1996. Posiblemente también sea la primera que la autora escribió, porque adolece de algunos males típicos del principiante: demasiada descripción, redundancia, exceso de personajes secundarios y un comienzo poco atractivo. Todo eso no importaría tanto si la historia fuera sólida y la pareja protagonista atrapara, pero no es el caso.
El conflicto principal no se sostiene. Incluso la autora, por boca de un personaje,

Sé que es una historia llena de los clichés habituales en este tipo de romances, pero me ha parecido una muy buena lectura. Me ha encantado la personalidad engreída y soberbia de él, algo normal tratándose del señor de un castillo, que además ha combatido en las cruzadas y en la guerra con Gales, en el siglo XIII, y la forma en la que la autora nos presenta a este personaje.

También me parece muy acertada la manera en la que están llevados ciertos temas de la época en esta novela, como los hijos

Nothing original in the plot. But that would have been O.K had there not been some Big shortcomings. Kenric seemed to me a kind of confused fellow who couldn't make up his mind. He fell for Tess the moment he set eyes on her. So why would he tell her she didn't matter to him ? Now, if we say, he was a hard man who didn't want to give her power over him than the contradicting question it begs is that, why did he than showed her how much he desired her and liked her the very next minute when he wo ...more

Una historia muy entretenida, pero a la vez exasperante ya que la mayor parte de su argumento se basa en un malentendido tras otro entre sus personajes principales.

De todas maneras, dentro del género es bastante original respecto de las causas e intrigas que originan los acontecimientos, y que se ven recompensados en el desenlace. Sólo le falta mayor despliegue de personajes secundarios, aunque los pocos que destacan ganarán inmediatamente el cariño del lector.

Ya Hep Ya Hiç - Elizabeth Elliott
(Orjinal Adı : Warlord)
Goodreads Puanı: 5/4,4


Yeni bir yazar yani bir hikaye ile tanışmış bulunmaktayım..O ne kurgu ne duygu sağanağı öyle..Çok beğenerek okudum..Yazarın kalemi ise müthişşş..Çok akıcı aşk,mizah,tarihi mekanların kurgusu tek kelime ile muhteşem bir roman bence..

Biraz internetten araştırdığımda yazar şimdiye kadar 3 kitap yazmış 4.cüsü ise yolda 2012 olarak yeni kitabı görülüyor..

Libro que tenía pendiente del #RetoRita1
Un fail total. Partimos de una premisa interesante que acaba resumida en un párrafo y dónde todo el argumento se contiene en el primer capítulo. A partir de ahí, la novela es un fallido intento por narrarnos la vida medieval y la relación entre sus protagonistas. Personajes principales planos, sin más defectos que unos rasgos que no los definen, sino que se utilizan según convenga a la historia, con comportamientos inconstantes, que piensan una cosa y hace

This was ok, not great. Those who love it really seem to love it, but for me it just missed the mark. I liked the beginning well enough, although there were scenes that I swear I've read before (Julie Garwood, maybe?), like when Tess was sick and thought Kenric was an angel and told him all about herself, etc. There were so many, many, many misunderstandings and unspoken assumptions I was exhausted of them after a while, and I think for much of the book Kenric was a jerk, never allowing Tess to ...more

Yayınevinin devamını getirmek için zahmet etmediği bu güzel serinin yazarı ile tanışmak çok keyifli bir yolculuktu. Kitabı çok çok beğenerek okudum. Yazar bize sırf romantik havalarını dayatmamış, her şey vardı. Tarihi kurgusu, entrikalar, zalim herifler. Baş karakter Kenric'in zaman zaman yaptığı hödüklükler beni delirtse de yine de çok sevdim. Hele geceleri Tess uyurken odasına gidip onu saatlerce kucağında tutması falan.. Ama keşke herkes çeviri işine el atmasa. Zaman zaman çeviriden kaynakla ...more

Kenric of Montague is dark and forbidding, had no wish for a wife. Lady Tess longed for peace for her beloved lands. She never thought that the price of reclaiming her lands would be marriage to the most notorious warlord in all of England. Kenric never thought that Lady Tess would be the woman to mend him in ways he never thought possible.

Terminada la historia de Kenric y Tess y lo único que puedo decir es que ha sido entretenida la historia pero no mucho más. Pasadas las 3/4 partes de la historia empezé a desear terminarlo porque se me hacía pesado. En mi opinión es un libro del montón. Otra nota negativa para las historias de la Edad Media.

İslenisi gayet güzeldi. Bazı yerlerde çeviri hatası veya yazardan kaynaklı olarak fazlaca tekrar vardı ama beni rahatsız etmedi.

Julie Garwood'un Yazgı romani sahnelerinden de bir dolu etkilesim mevcuttu. Şu bayginken tüm seceresini anlatma olayı(hatta hizmetliye yumruk savurma sahnesi ) ,üvey abi tarafından eziyete maruz kalması, sorunlu kız kardeş, kızımızın kendini feda edeceğini düşünüp devamli gitmeyi planlaması bla bla bla...

Hubo veces en las que me daban ganas de matar a Keric & a Tess por no decirse lo que sentian el uno por el otro.
El gili*pollas de Gordon y su padre merecían algo peor, no me puedo creer lo que le hicieron a la pobre de Tess, se merecian lo que pasó al final.

This would be my first read by Elizabeth Elliott. It was an ok read, nothing spectacular or enticing. There were a lot of cliched themes and character personalities in this novel. It felt like I've read it before in the past. This novel reminded me a lot of Keeper of the Dream (Penelope Williamson), The More I See You (Lynn Kurland), & Prisoner of My Desires (Johanna Lindsey) all mixed together. The Warlord definitely shared a lot themes with these novels as well as sharing with many other t ...more

Oh this hard copy is a well worn favorite. Kenric is everything I hoped for in a reluctant, cold, leading man who is a Warlord. He is just doing his alpha male thing to be loyal to his king and if that means having to marry a super, hot virgin and dub-con her into his bed - he's game. I can't even think of what not to like about him. Sex is hot, tension high and archetypes spot on. Quintessential historical romance that delivers your expectations for every cent you pay.

I have been going back through and posting reviews for some of my long time keeper shelf inhabitants. This is one of them. Aside from being a very skilled writer, Ms. Elliot created characters I absolutely loved. The hero in this book is very dark, tortured, and ultimately redeemed. The heroine is feminine and troubled, but she too finds redemption in the end. Great book.

“Kenric grabbed her arms and pulled her closer, shaking her once. "I've told you it will make no difference! Why are you doing this?"
"Because I love you," she whispered brokenly.
Those were the words. Of any she could have said to him, those were the only ones that could crumble his defenses. He'd heard them too often in his mind, certain she would never think to use them as a weapon. They sliced through him as cleanly as the sharpest knife.”
