Brilliant historical fantasy novel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’ve never read Hannah Walker before but I suspect that will change quite quickly following this book.
This is everything I love in a fantasy novel just minus the magic. It has a feudal style medieval feel to the worlds, it has hot alpha men, powerful but also compassionate and loving and it has a great plot.
Both the MCs in this one are men who know their own worth but are still humble enough to courageously put their kingdoms before their feelings.
I loved the friendships they have with their fellow soldiers too and the sneaky political plotting worked well to drive the tensions in the romance.
I know this is marketed as a stand alone but I’d love to read more of this universe as I want to know more about the rest of the gang.
Also truly gorgeous cover, one of the reasons I picked this out to read.
