  • This book showed the brutality of people in power. It showed the hardships and cruelty of a time long ago.

  • I love the historical setting of this book. I will be reading more books by this author in the future.

  • This was a page turner. The author was moving the plot back and forth, up and down keeping my interest peaked all the time. Loved it.

  • I don't know whether to love it or not. So many evil people. The hero and heroine fall in love early but they are separated until the end. It's a medieval romance with many battles and lots of wickedness. Ten hours and 3 parts having mostly to do with border skirmishes between England and Wales. I'd read it again.

  • I have mixed feelings about this book. First, it took me a really long time to get invested in the story. It started out really fast paced but after a couple chapters it slowed down so much that I wasn't sure I was going to be able to go on but then it suddenly got good again. The writing style also threw me off as well. There were times when the story was very well written and other times it seemed like a teenager was writing it. It was almost as if two different people were writing. The chemistry between Gwyn and Rhys was nonexistent for me. There actually seemed to be more chemistry between Gwyn and Caerleon. I think more than anything this story just annoyed me because it seemed that if some of the stupid decisions made by main characters had been avoided, a lot of heartache and misery could have been avoided as well. All in all I thought it was needlessly drawn out. The story ends with a happily ever after but I didn't feel good after reading it. I received an arc from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

  • When one becomes a ward of a unscrupulous king one is at the mercy of his wishes. William II was one such king and Gwyn realised very early on that she would need all her wits about her to survive. It did not help that her guardian in this case was disoriented and did not care about her welfare. Her only concern was to survive herself and somehow protect her young son.

    The court was corrupt and the advisors to the King worse. Gwyn found out that love had no place in the court and those who professed it only meant to please themselves or further their own place in the court. It was a bitter pill to swallow. She loved unwisely and had to rein herself in and not risk her life. As it is she lost her entire dowry to the greedy king who actually wagers her to the highest bidder. Seeking escape, escape she does but then ends up with a man who is worse than all of them. Married to him and with no means of escape she thinks this is her fate but fate has a strange way of upsetting everyone's plans and it ends well.

    Love triumphs, good over evil and it was a pleasant ending to an unpleasant tale of avarice, men's over riding power over women and at a time where women were merely chattels of either their fathers or their husbands.

  • This book is filled with fascinating characters, believable events, and historically accurate events. The reign of William Rufus was hard on everyone from Saxons to Welsh, and even most Normans. Whoever eliminated William did everyone a favor, especially as Henry became a much better king. As to the story of Gwyn and Rhys, it holds the reader's and conveys a feeling for the time and place in which it was set. However, I did begin to question how Rhys could be so blind to Caerleon's deception and Griffith's weakness and why Gwyn was always so quick to run away except when she should have. Her decisions were not usually for the best.
