    Lisa Hendrix has done it again!

    Gunnar's story is different from the other books in that it takes place over a course of years rather than weeks. It's sadder, too, when you consider what those years mean to Gunnar and Eleanor. But sometimes that heartache we feel is made so much sweeter when love finds a way to triumph over evil (aka Cwen and her horribleness).

    I really liked Eleanor and her spunk and how she was a bit of a hussy. She made me laugh, which always makes the reading experience that much better. Her and Gunnar together are adorable. I'm pretty sure I sighed a couple times.

    And I can't wait for the next book as it looks like it will be about Torvalt. Woo-hoo!

    Another great Nordic champion

    Lisa Hendrix's Immortal Brotherhood series continues with this third book, Immortal Champion, and it's a fine addition to the lore. Her history is well-researched, and 15th century England comes to vivid life, with intermarried royals, intrigue, the quest for power, and the struggles of a young woman growing up to be used as a pawn. But Eleanor de Neville proves an unwilling pawn, crossing the chess-board at her father's command, but ever mindful of love that lies waiting in the form of a curious knight.

    Eleanor's beloved is an immortal, condemned to spend his days as animal and only nights as man. Even so, he spends happy nights in the warmth of a castle, winning her heart and eventually her body. But that's only half the tale; Gunnar would dearly love to win his own body back too, freed from the witch's curse by an amulet's power and a woman's true love, if only he could be sure of both.

    Misunderstandings, misleading and misrepresentations might keep the lovers apart, but in Lisa Hendrix's enchanted world, true love has a power all its own. Bitter winter, bitter thoughts, true joy and faltering hope are all portrayed with vivid and gentle realism in the author's writing-a story to stir the soul, a sweet love for the spirit, and a touch of mystery to keep the reader eager and longing for more.

    Immortal Champion is a fascinating tale in its own right, and another great chapter in a series that blends English history with Norse mythology with modern romance to create something intriguingly timeless and timelessly intriguing, well worth the read.

    Disclosure: I bought a signed copy from a local book-signing as soon as this book was released!
