When I purchased this book I thought that Elizabeth Chadwick was a historical writer, I didn't realise that she was previously a historical romance writer. If this book was written as a historical romance than it was ok, I've read so much better, if it was written as a historical then it lacked any historical content. I was familiar with the setting and the time period because of all the Plantagenet novels I've read but that was not really a big feature in the story. I have to be honest and say that I was really disappointed in this book. The first hook was around page 50 and it was a romantic hook and that was the only thing that kept the story interesting. I am glad it wasn't a long book but I really wanted to love Elizabeth Chadwick. Everyone has recommended 'The Greatest Knight' so I will try reading that down the track and hopefully that will be better.
