Overview

They are cursed by the gods, and war is their salvation. Love is their deliverance.

For centuries, five legendary warriors have braved battles shoulder to shoulder. But now they must divide and conquer as lone champions against evil.

Duncan, a scholar at heart, is drawn to an isolated abbey rumored to hold the answers to countering the terror unleashed by Duke Keirthan. Inside the cloistered walls lies the hidden collection of forbidden lore on dark magic. But the real key to the salvation Duncan seeks—both for the people of Agathia and his soul—is the abbess herself, Lady Lavinia. Hunted by the duke, who seeks to harvest her powers, Lavinia knows Duncan wants to help her. But can she trust the tortured warrior with her secrets?

In the end, it is only by joining forces that they can save not only those they are sworn to protect but each other.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Morgan follows My Lady Mage with a mediocre bridge book. Five damned warriors, brought back to life by their goddess to save the city of Agathia in the few months before the solstice, collect new allies and vague prophetic support for the fight against evil Duke Keirthan’s destructive blood magic. Scholar-warrior Duncan travels to an abbey rumored to have forbidden books that could help counter the duke’s spells. He falls for the appealingly competent Abbess Lavinia, a powerful mage, while coming to terms with using magic himself. Though readers will enjoy passages about the warriors’ tenderness toward their animal avatars and the strong, equal partnerships between the warriors and their lovers, those elements still feel like a sidebar in what is more a fantasy series than a romantic one, and the world-saving plot makes glacial progress toward an inevitable big battle.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson I'm a fan of Alexis Morgan for sure, but this series is absolutely incredible, and Her Knight's Quest was truly special - it's full of fabulous characters, a continually engaging storyline, an enchanting world, and I absolutely loved it! I'm not a historical romance reader. Heck, I just read my first non-paranormal romance the other day and I read A LOT! I'm an urban fantasy/paranormal romance/fantasy/horror-thriller girl, and yet, I was completely engaged by this book and would have been very sad if it didn't have the historical aspects that it did. Alexis paints a truly beautiful tapestry and weaves the 2 genres together wonderfully thus creating what I hope is a new recognized sub-genre. This second installment centers around Duncan, the scholar/warrior of the Damned. The Damned are warriors who act as avatars to  their Goddess, and come to the aid of those in need when summoned. The rest of the time they slumber under the river. Their full story is revealed in the 1st book of the series, My Lady Mage, though you can get a good idea from the intro to Her Knight's Quest and the tidbits  that are revealed throughout, therefore making the book work just fine as a stand-alone.  Our heroine, Lavinia, is an earth witch with a heady secret, hiding from her past by running an abbey and guarding a precious library. Together they make an incredibly powerful couple. Duncan has magick in his blood but his Goddess and the rest of the Damned do not trust magick, and Lavinia has always been independent and looked out for herself and those she cares about so it's hard for her to give in and let Duncan care for her.  Aside from the incredible story, the utterly loathable villain and his cronies, and the powerful romance that blooms between Duncan and Lavinia, we get to see how things are going with Captain Gideon and his lady love Merewen (the power couple from book #1), and are brought into the budding interests between Murdoch and Lady Alina (who I'm assuming will be the leading couple in book #3, but I could be wrong), so there are plenty of side stories to go around and make the entire book robust and enjoyable. LITERAL ADDICTION gives Her Knight's Quest 5 Skulls and would recommend it and the entire WARRIORS OF THE MIST series to all Paranormal Romance and Historical Romance fans. It's beautiful and I can't wait for the next book!
