From the PublisherA masterpiece! An epic adventure!
Fires of Winter is the story of a love-match made despite the dangerous times and doubtful circumstances. The author obviously knows the time period well, and her teasing, alternating chapters kept me interested until the end. I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a good historical romance that happens to lend a view on the historical politics as well.
Gellis is really good at delivering interesting, true to their period, characters and in immersing her story in history. It made for a very interesting read!
If you enjoy epic historical romances, this book is a pleasant read and I'll be reading the first in the series for sure
I love a romance that compliments a complex storyline, giving it emotional substance. If you're already a fan of Roberta Gellis, or are looking for a new author to read, look for this book in November 2011.
This is a really nice story that shows we can have an honest romance with a history lesson thrown in without the sexual prominence overtaking our story line.
It was an interesting book places against a time of turmoil in England. A good lovestory and what I just love, history, facts and the feeling you are there in the dirty streets and the beautiful halls.
The terrific story line rotates perspective between the lead couple in an epic sweep of the years, but also maintains a strong medieval base as the protagonists are a sign of their times in a great historical
Exciting and riviting, there is no doubt in my mind why Ms Gellis is a best selling author. Her work truely does speak for its self. Her tales are filled with romance and inspiration that will touch you in a way that only a gifted storyteller can. Bravo!!
This historical romance is not your typical love story and I think readers will appreciate the difference.
I'm giving this one 4 out of 5 apples from my book bag!
