Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books. *I received a copy of this book from Goddess Fish Promotions in exchange of a fair and honest review.* This was quite the interesting book. The first and foremost thing that I absolutely adored was that Alex, a female, was captain of the Kings Guard, normally a position for a male. She was a force to be reckoned with. She was charged with the keeping the King’s son, Prince Holden, safe and away from danger and death. She was a spitfire in her own right and didn’t let anyone push her around. It’s always fun reading characters like her! On the other hand, it’s equally as exciting reading about characters such as Prince Holden. He was a spoiled boy, never having to work for anything, until the night he gets sent away for his protection. He was a tough character and boy was he determined! He is one of those characters that doesn’t quite know what to do when he is told no. So his relationship with Alex was exciting and fun to read. One thing I did find kind of strange was the double standard that Alex seemed to hold toward Prince Holden and sleeping with people easily. She did the same with a gentleman she met in a small town during their journey. That part seemed slightly unbelievable towards Alex’s character as it was simply for pleasure and no feelings were there. The detail! Oh boy, the detail. This story involves war with the Dane’s, and it’s the more exciting type of war, if there is such a thing. They had to be creative with their weaponry, their attack, and their plans. It was more of a hand to hand fighting than we have today. There was a castle and a moat. The author did an incredible job writing the scenery and used great detail in her descriptions. During some of the fighting scenes it was incredible reading as it was so easy to picture what was really going on. That made the book 10 times more exciting! As with any story that involves war and fighting, there is death, which equates sadness and heartache. There were times when I would giggle and smile and others where my heart hurt. It’s the nature of the beast but the way that this story was written, these emotions were expanded upon instead of just having the assumption the reader feels them. This was an exciting story and a story that I would suggest that you read.
