Claire Stuart is an independent woman. She’s been brought up fighting alongside her brother. Since her brother has been murdered and her sister kidnapped, Claire decides it’s time to exact a little revenge. On her way, however, she finds herself in need of rescuing.
Robert and Grant are happy to save the woman they find strapped to a tree. The only problem is that for some strange reason, she doesn’t seem to think she needs to be saved. What will they have to go through to prove that she needs their help?
Amid political rivalry, Claire must attempt to exact her revenge and fight for her cause. If only she could get rid of these two men who keep bothering her!
My only complaint about this story is that at the beginning I had a really difficult time trying to keep all the characters straight. About halfway through I realized that there were other stories that went along with this book. It’s the classic case of reading a book out of sequence and being a little lost. Everything else about the book was wonderful though. I love the characters! They are so vibrant and alive that you feel as if you know them. They’re also exciting and not the every-day characters that you come across in a lot of books. I kept thinking to myself, “But I thought he was the good guy!”
The settings are alive and described well enough that you can easily see them in your mind. I also loved the range of emotions that this book gave me. At some points of the book I couldn’t help but laugh while at others I was at the edge of my seat wondering how on earth they were going to get out of such a predicament!
I was a little lost on the entire political drama, but I did think it was really interesting that it was based on actual historical events and people. Overall, great read, but not amazing.
Armchair Interviews says: For most enjoyment, read these books in order of the series. Lord of the Mist, December 2007 release was first in series.
