Loved It! and I don't even like Medieva stories...
Let me start by saying that I am not a person to read medieval books or novels, but this one captured my attention from the very beginning. The content of the story will keep you reading for hours. In my opinion, it is a well-balanced novel of romance, adventure, history, passion and eroticism. The author has a way of immersing you so deep into the scenes that you’ll feel as if you are there, escaping capture, riding in the ship, and watching those intense encounters. The pace of events is just right, and I love how the author played with my expectations, surprising me with a twist just as I thought I had it all figured out. I also enjoyed how Mr. Serei developed the characters in the story; it was as if I was living their life, seeing through their eyes and feeling their emotions as my own. I would recommend this book to anyone. It will take you away on an amazing adventure and drive your imagination to a far away place and time. I cannot wait for the second book; please write faster!
