Overview

Intrigue, suspicion, and rivalry among the royal princes casts a shadow on the court of Owain, king of north Wales...

The year is 1143 and King Owain seeks to unite his daughter in marriage with an allied king. But when the groom is murdered on the way to his wedding, the bride's brother tasks his two best detectives-Gareth, a knight, and Gwen, the daughter of the court bard-with bringing the killer to justice.

And once blame for the murder falls on Gareth himself, Gwen must continue her search for the truth alone, finding unlikely allies in foreign lands, and ultimately uncovering a conspiracy that will shake the political foundations of Wales.

Meet the Author

With two historian parents, Sarah couldn't help but develop an interest in the past. She went on to get more than enough education herself (in anthropology) and began writing fiction when the stories in her head overflowed and demanded she let them out. Her interest in Wales stems from her own ancestry and the year she lived in England when she fell in love with the country, language, and people. She even convinced her husband to give all four of their children Welsh names.

She makes her home in Oregon.

    Really great book!

    I don't read a lot of mysteries but I picked this up on the recommendation of a friend. I read it in one afternoon and evening--couldn't put it down. The characters were great and the setting authentic. Highly recommended.

    Very good

    It did take some effort in the beginning of the book to keep some of the characters straight. Since it's historical fiction some names could not be changed. I found that in no time it was not an issue. I thought that the story line was strong and it was well written. I will be buying her other books.

    Ugh

    Very difficult to keep the characters separate as they all have similar names.

    I rarely stop reading before the end but...

    The story is silly. I can't try to solve the mystery because I can't tell the characters apart (seriously, if you're going to give them unintelligible names, at least make them easier to tell apart). Ugh.

    This was a deviation from my usual reading material in that it is neither Young Adult nor Fantasy. Nonetheless, it was free for Kindle and had “knight” in the title. I decided to give it a shot and what I got was certainly worth the read!

    The plot:
    This is a mystery set in medieval Wales with enough twists to keep me guessing. There’s a dash of romance, a good dose of action, and enough historical fact to make it authentic, but not overwhelming. Despite this being a little different from my normal literary fare, it was a good read and a reminder of why I used to love mystery.

    The characters:
    Gwen is a bard’s daughter who is also a spy for the king’s youngest son, Hwyll. She was a strong heroine who has her head on straight and her feet firmly on the ground and is clever to boot. I did like her and the side romance between her and Gareth was sweet, but not prominent enough to distract from the main story—the murder mystery.

    There is this one part where Gareth is called a “good knight,” thus giving the story its name. He is one of those loyal, steadfast characters with a past he’d rather be without. He is also in the confidences of Hwyll, who gave him a sort of second chance after a conflict drove him to be a mercenary seven years before. I thought Gareth was a likeable individual overall and I did my fair share of worrying about him as the story progressed.

    I’m not going to tell you about the other characters because this is a mystery after all and we wouldn’t want to spoil anything. I’ll just say that Ms. Woodbury did a good job of showing the mindset of the era and didn’t sugar coat anyone. I thought this was an excellent story and I recommend it to fans of historical fiction or even just mystery.

    Better than average Medieval mystery

    I'd read the first of this series, Bard's Daughter, and immediately ordered this one. I'm looking forward to others by this author.

    Similar characters

    I am glad to see that i am nit the only one who cant tell the characters apart from each other! I'm not sure if it was just that or disjointed wording. I stopped reading on pg 19. For a book i got for free...its not worth the struggle.
