The best in the series!!
Reviewed in the United States on July 2, 2018
This was my favorite of this series and the best, in my opinion. So, I had to look at the one and two star reviews. I was surprised to see that there were any. One said that the characters lacked humor. Well, I don't know what book that person read, but I laughed throughout this book. Another said the story was disjointed "not very easy to decipher." Uhhh...what were they trying to decipher? It was a pretty straightforward story, not time-travel or flashbacks that might be confusing, just people going along linearly through time! I really enjoyed this book. Like I said, I laughed a lot as I read this book. The characters were intelligent, and I really liked that the female lead character just fell head over heals for Aulay and didn't even get mad at him when he revealed the truth. She was very understanding and also smart. The only thing that bothered me a little, and I don't recall seeing this much before in one of Lynsay's books, are the two anachronisms. One character was "red as a tomato." Well, tomatoes are a New Wold food, so a medieval English lady would not think of herself as red as a tomato. Also, the phrase "trussed up like a turkey" is used. Again, turkeys are a New World animal. Medieval Brits wouldn't know about turkeys. Other than those two things, I loved the book and highlighted a lot of funny parts on my Kindle!
