Overview

THE EXECUTION

Parallel lives are fated to collide in The Execution, a medieval thriller, dark adventure, and tragic love story set in fourteenth century France.

A young priest enters the prison cell of a condemned mercenary and is shocked to see the face of this murderer is his own—a mirror image of himself. Unknown to each other until now, the twins form a bond of brotherhood, sealed with their darkest secrets. But with only hours until the execution, the priest begins to question which man should truly be condemned. Should it be the ruthless killer—a boy from an orphanage who suffered the unimaginable—or himself, the man of God whose own tormented desires ended in tragedy? As the sun rises, the young priest knows what he must do. Only one man will die…but two men will be free.

Editorial Reviews

Examiner.com - Brian Triplett
Even the most manliest of manly men who enjoyed all those knife fights and chase scenes from Ravan's half of the novel will probably find his heart breaking and tear up a little when the lovers meet their tragic end.

"The Execution" succeeds beautifully on an emotional level as Cramer uses her novel to explore themes related to love, loss, sexual relationships and all the ways that humans can be cruel to each other.

    Distracting

    You will enjoy this book unless you are a history nerd, in which case you will wonder why the story is set in fourteenth century France- there is nothing french except the names of some of the places and the descriptionof daly life in the middle ages is .totally off. I can overlook mistakes like how religion was practiced and I realize how snobbish I am being about the hammered dulcimer and the use pf glassware in inns. What did me in was the reference to Joan of Arc's heroism when she lived and died in the fifteenth century. That was the point that did me in. But if you don't care about thtat stuff you may really like the book.

    I loved this book. My heart wept for the two main characters, especially Ravan. The writing is excellent, the story line is fascinating. I read this book in three days, I was so engrossed. I definitely would recommend this book.

    D'ata is a priest who goes to read a condemned man his last righ

    D'ata is a priest who goes to read a condemned man his last rights. What he finds is a man who looks just like him. As the two discover they are really twins they share how they have got to this point in their lives. Both have fallen in love but both have lived very different lives. As Ravan's last night draws to an end D'ata will do whatever he can to help the brother he never knew.




    This is an interesting story as from the first I wondered what kind of priest D'ata could be. e didn't act like the other priest. As he faces Ravan the story really starts for me. They tell each other how they grew up and in some ways it makes you wonder if they had grown up different would things change. I didn't like D'ata to much at first bit once I heard his tale he grew on me. He ran away with the girl he loved and was chased by many. I liked him more as I saw what all he went through. Ravan I have to say I liked from the start. He really grew up hard as he was a servant and more. he made several friends along the way and sometimes more than love. Their stories are told in flashbacks so you see them then and now. I liked the ending and I think the book is a good read. The cover matches the story very well and I really like that.

    I really enjoyed this book, despite its gruesome title. The writing was excellent, the characters extremely well-developed, the plot fascinating. I had trouble putting this book down (I think I read it in two days). I highly recommend this book.

    A great read

    Wow! What an unexpected surprise. This is an exceptionally well written book. The author's ability to keep separate story lines so strong makes for a terrific tale of events. Her characters are well developed and the intertwining of people and events is excellent.I didn't want to put it down. I never read a book twice....but I may read this one again.

    Very very good.

    I read a lot. I can't afford to buy a lot of books and seek out free ones. This was, by far, the best book I have read for free. I actually feel a pang of guilt for not having to pay for it. The ending WAS somewhat predictable, however, the writing style, color, and emotion was so well described that the predictability mattered very little. Thanks for the valued entertainment!!

    I'm not familiar with this author, was not sure what to expect, but I started to read the book and couldn't stop. I had to know what happened. It's different than anything I've ever read. I found myself inside the story, like I was really there. New favorite and will watch for other books by Sharon Cramer

    This book was absolutely wonderful. The characters were so intriguing and made you very empathetic for both of their pasts.  The author does a great job of keeping the reader's attention, and makes each character's story come to life.  The setting and time period were depicted wonderfully, I truly felt like I was in fourteenth century France. Also, there is a great mix of genre in this book- romance, defiance, action.  I highly recommend reading The Execution for anyone.
