Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Cindy Miles makes a spirited debut with this entertaining, ghostly romance between a medieval knight, Tristan de Barre (a.k.a. Dragonhawk), and a present-day forensic anthropologist, Andrea Monroe.

Andi gets the chance of her young career when she is charged to investigate a hoard of medieval weaponry uncovered when a mighty oak fell at an estate in northern England. This is Dreadmoor, the very place where 15 knights, including the original Lord Dreadmoor, vanished without a trace in 1292. Andi sets briskly to work, trying to ignore the talking ghosts that crop up and Tristan, the very attractive lord of the manor. Tristan's big problem is that he has, er, no substance -- he can pass through walls -- which has considerable implications for their growing attraction and sexual frustration. On top of this, Andi's mentor, Kirk, is acting bizarrely, and someone is trying to kill her. Miles resolves ancient and present mysteries, even as she makes the most of the cultural anachronisms that might exist in a relationship between a medieval knight and a contemporary woman.

    Good Debut book

    It was good for a debut book. I won't go into the plot, that's been done. I will say it just didn't do it for me.<BR/>I would like to have had more substance in the characters rather then detailed descriptions each and every time one showed up. How many times do we need to be told his eyes are sapphire blue? And the words powerful and passing were used way too much to describe attributes and emotions. The story slowed way down in the middle, and the end wasn't all that I'd hoped. This book would have been great as part of an anthology.<BR/>All that being said, it is worth reading. And the secondary characters were great. Although I won't be putting on my keeper shelf. I would, however, read more from this author.

    energetic amusing ghostly romance

    In 1292 Tristan de Barre and his men were betrayed, murdered and cursed to haunt Dreadmoor Castle in Northern England by his foster father De Sabre who blames the ¿Dragonhawk¿ for the death of his son. Hundreds of years go by as Dragonhawk and his ghostly men observe, but cannot do anything about their cursed status although he recently rescued a teenage female (Andi Monroe) who snuck into the castle. When a storm uproots a centuries old oak tree, the skeletal remains of Tristan and his squad are revealed their weapons are also uncovered. The spirits of these men have hopes for the first time since the medieval betrayal that they finally might move on. The castle¿s caretaker Jameson arranges with Kirk Grey for an archeological dig led by his protégé forensic archaeologist Andi Monroe. As she methodically begins the excavation, Andi is taken aback by talking ghosts especially falling in love with their leader. --- SPIRITED AWAY is an energetic amusing ghostly romance starring a likable intelligent mortal and a somewhat frustrated ghost. The paranormal story line grips readers once Tristan and Andi begin talking although she fears she is losing her mind. Sub-genre fans will appreciate Cindy Miles first castle haunting novel. --- Harriet Klausner

    Fell in love..

    with this book. A beautiful story, well written. I'm glad the author didn't spent too much time on the "bad guy" in the story, but instead focused on the main charactors. What a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Was worth every penny.

    Wonderful book!

    This book is the first in a series of ghostly romances by Cindy Miles, and I love them all! She takes so much care to develop characters that you can really like and that have real depth. The stories are wonderful and the romance so sweet my heart is often breaking for the main characters until things resolve. What makes these books truly special in my opinion is the cast of secondary characters who have as much depth as the main characters, just not the same screen time. However, many of them are recurring characters in later books which is an unexpected bonus when I rediscover them, and some even get their own stories. My favorite character, Jason, has yet to have his happy ending written, but I remain hopeful for more from Cindy Miles!

    Spirited Away

    I just finished Spirited Away by Cindy Miles and I loved it. It has so many characters, all very layered and interesting due to their personalities and back stories, plus it's got great plot. It's both a ghost story and a love story, with humor and drama for a touch of well rounded goodness. And you have to hope that the curse on the 15 poor knights can be broken, but at what cost? How can a relationship work between a mortal woman and handsome chivalrous ghostly knight of the 13th century? Brilliantly, that's how. I finished this quickly, I hated to put it down and wanted to find out how it would all play out. A spellbinding read, can't wait to try out more of her work.

    OMG! I have three copies it was so good

    I could NOT put this book down, its just amazing. I love the fact of the forebidden love with a happy ending thing. Its really original and the fact that it was medevil knights placed into the 21st century. I have to say this was a really good book and she's a wonderful author. Read it

    Cute, but not what I expected/wanted.

    It's "passing fair" for a debut, (The word passing is really used too much as are a few others). The thing that bothered me most about it was that there were these hardened medieval warriors that guffawed and elbowed each other when the main characters kissed and generally acted like 14-year-old boys. The secondary characters were cliches and only served to fawn over and point out the perfection of the main characters. The story was sweet but not very substantial. I guess I'm spoiled by reading Nora Roberts recently. When I need a nice light romance I can always turn to Nora. I was just hoping to find another author who I enjoyed as well. But, unfortunately this one is not it. But it's not terrible and I'm sure some people who are looking for a light and fluffy daydream will enjoy it. I won't be reading any more of this author though.

    LOVED this!

    This was the first paranormal romance I ever read and I was instantly HOOKED. Cindy Miles has an amazing talent for bringing her characters to life and making them real and believeable. I cared so much for these characters that I was very sad to see this story end. I have heard the quote "the delicious ache of a last page" and that certainly fit to this. The pacing was good, the romance was amazing, and the supporting characters made me laugh out loud. They were all so endearing. I have since read all of Cindy Miles' books and she has won me over. I highly recommend ALL of Cindy's books as a blissful escape from Real Life. :)

    You must read this!!!!

    I bought this book online so I didn't know what to think of it. But as soon as I started it I couldn't stop. My husband said that I ignored him the hole day and you know what I did and enjoyed every minute of it. This is a must read if you want to laugh and cry. You will find yourself chearing for the characters and not just to two main characters but everyone else in the story as well.
