This second book in the series The Champions of Saint Euphemia, was a delight to read! It always warms my heart when I find a book where the hero is valiant, yet tender hearted. I like the way this author seamlessly weaves together several stories that occur at or around the same time without seeming to miss a beat. Oddly enough, the way she described how Juliana became Christina, was in fact an often seen, factual occurrence, of the times. It wasn't like she made her choice lightly. For all of Wulfe's bluster in the first book, you might be surprised to discover the reasons behind his actions and how similar the two lead characters actually were. Since I am not Catholic, I am not familia with all the Saints, though have often been intrigued by their stories, so I was amazed at the amount of research that had to have gone into this book. I also bought and listened to the audio version, narrated by Tim Gerard Reynolds. I love listening to his narrations as he seems to bring heart to an already well written book with his gifted ability to pull you into the story. If you enjoyed her series The Jewels of Kinfairly, you should be very happy reading this series as well. I would easily recommend both book and audio to all my friends!

I really enjoyed this story. It kept me intrigued although at times because I'd read the first book it felt as if I was rereading the same book albeit from a different perspective.
