Legend begins where truth ends … or is it the other way around?
King Arthur is dead. Guenevere has been slain. Merlin has vanished. And Camelot seems lost forever. The servants of the evil ones are intent on capturing the Isle of Might no matter the cost – but the remaining knights of the Round Table have a plan.
The unlikely princess: protected from the knowledge of her birthright by the Knights of the Round Table. Emerald Rose Rayn is a high-spirited lass and a skilled warrior with an unshakable faith in God.
The reluctant apprentice: embittered by his father Merlin’s betrayal. Shadoe un Hollo Tors abandons God and Camelot, until a dream returns him to his childhood home to fulfill his destiny and appoint Aurthur’s rightful heir to the throne.
Bound by divine providence, divided by distrust, and threatened by sorcery and demons, Shadoe and Rayn must overcome their instant dislike and mutual attraction to save the isle.
I was a little hesitant when I picked up this book. I am not usually into knights and ladies, nor the Knights of the Round Table. However, the cover looked intriguing so I forced myself to read past the first chapter or two. Then, I was hooked. I really, really enjoyed this novel by Linda Wichman. It is the first of this author’s I’ve read and I will be looking for any sequels for sure.
The characters are memorable. The “chemistry” between Emerald Rose Rayn and Shadoe un Hollo Tors is very well done. I enjoyed their dislike for one another and eventual feelings of attraction. I thought the characters had a lot of depth. Not only the main characters either. I thought even some of the more minor characters had believable motivations for the way they acted and the choices they made. The more I am remembering as I think back, the more I am convinced this is a great novel!
