I love medieval stories and this one has it all. Jousting, sword fights, murder, and love, what could be better?
Sera is a wonderful female character who comes to life. She’s a young widow who is ‘commanded’ to marry the winner of the joust. But, it is her castle. Her brother-in-law wants it for himself and schemes to make her leave.
The young Aethan is on a quest to find his mother’s murderer. A bastard by birth, he falls for the noble Lady Sera.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tale. The time period comes to life, the lead is believable. We feel her pain and trouble as she struggles to take control of her castle and her love life.
