Top international reviews
The writing is good and the plot flows well but they are really a bit on the bland almost boring side. The romance is almost non-existent and the heat level is barely lukewarm.
In this story Nicolas (the youngest deBurgh) finds his true love.
Emery is an odd heroine - there is really nothing wrong with her nor is there anything noteworthy about her.
The story opens with Nicolas protecting an knight being ambushed and asking him to protect Emery.
The knight that was ambushed is Emery's twin brother who is a hospitaller knight - he shows up to Emery injured and barely conscious. She tends him and wakes to find him gone. As she sets out to find him she meets up with Nicolas and Guy (his squire). She is dressed as a boy and they think she is a he.
They travel together for days before Nicolas figures out that Emery is a girl. But it doesn't change his mind about helping her find her brother. They are being pursued by a Templar knight and he fears for Emery's safety.
Anyway - Emery's uncle turns up dead and so does the Templar - at this point the reader discovers Nicolas and Emery's secrets. And the reasons they both think they can't be together.
Long story short - they find her brother and all their problems are resolved very quickly. The End.
I was hoping for more - at least a really good epilogue since this was the end of the series - but I didn't get it.
The first five books were incredible and I would recommend them - the last two, not so much.
