This is the second book in this medieval romance series by Amanda Sowards, and WOW! It’s intense. It begins 11 years after the ending of the last book (Of Sword and Shadows) and is told from Rasheed’s POV. He was Gillen’s Moorish friend from the last book, a Muslim convert to Christianity.
Here’s a short blurb of the book:
When one of his best friends is abducted, Rasheed immediately gathers a rescue party. Joining forces with the mysterious Cecilia, the group faces pirates, old enemies, and a host of other foes. Rasheed forms a surprising connection with Cecilia, but he soon discovers that nothing is as it seems, especially when they are forced to choose between love and duty.
This book was awesomely intense! I won’t give you all the details and ruin your fun in reading it. Just know, although this book is long, I read it in two days. I could not put it down once I started because I was thoroughly captivated and had to know what would happen next. And a LOT happens. Wow!
There is so much political intrigue, espionage, betrayal, heartache, growing friendships, death, crazy plot twists and more to keep you from all the chores you probably need to get done for the holidays. So beware. This book will seriously kidnap you from life and not let you go until you read The End. That is not an exaggeration. I LOVE books like this!
Forget your chores. Forget you need to eat. I say let yourself get kidnapped by this awesome book. Stockholm Syndrome is real. You will grow to love your captor. You’ll learn more about the area of Greece during the 14th century and all the crazy political maneuverings going on from all the different cultures and religions that vied for power. So grab this book, bind yourself to the couch, and enjoy being a prisoner. 😊
