The explosive conclusion to The Brides of Alba Trilogy, perfect for fans of medieval romance and Arthurian legend.
Filled with action, conspiracy, and steeped in legendary faith, this book reminded me just how much I really like Linda Windsor's books. This book has strong characters, and weaves the faith into the fabric of the story. I really like how this book shows how faith was a big part of the political atmosphere, being twisted by some for their own purposes, and the importance of standing strong on the truth.
Kella is a multi-lingual heroine, well versed in other languages spoken and written. She carries a shameful secret that binds her, and leaves her questioning God's forgiveness and love. She is stubborn and charming, the youngest of a household of boys, her strength is balanced with her vulnerability, making her real and a likable character.
Alyn was by far my favorite, he is at a crossroads in his life, yet he never waivers in being supportive and protective of Kella. He is always putting others first. I admired his humility, and calm, he is the exact opposite and perfect compliment for Kella's more impulsive nature.
Overall, this was an engaging, and entertaining read from beginning to end, I love how it blends faith and Arthurian legend, with history and romance. The characters are well developed, and I liked how the stakes rose as the book progressed. A satisfying conclusion to this series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
