What Readers Are Saying

A story rich in characterization, plot, and suspense. Taylor weaves a mosaic with just the proper amounts of literary ingredients to keep the reader craving more. This is the second book in the series. Must go looking for the first so I can enjoy the writing and characters again. Well done.”

“Thoughtful tale of the age of knights and kings, and similar to Jack Whyte’s Skystone series. Ms. Taylor does a masterful job of placing the reader in the time, place, and emotions of the moment. I enjoyed the story immensely and my only disappointment was that it was over way too soon. I look forward to the sequel. Highly recommended.”

“I am particularly impressed by the fact that this is a debut novel. I look forward to seeing where the author takes the story.”

“This is a very well-crafted story by Pamela Taylor, transporting the reader to a medieval world of royalty, knights, revenge and betrayal. Historical fiction is not normally my genre of choice, but Pamela Taylor made it a viable option from now on.”

“An excellent story that drew me in and kept me reading until the end. I enjoy characters who are honorable, likeable, and strong. I also enjoy reading about intelligent capable women. this book had them all.”

I was captured from the beginning. A tale well told and a nice change from most historical/romantic fiction. Good character development.”

Travel back in time with an exciting adventure. So well written, you’ll think the characters are real. I actually had to look up the period to be sure this was all fiction.”
