WILDEWOOD REVENGE - B. A. MORTON
Here is my review:
B. A. Morton’s historical fantasy, ‘Wildewood Revenge’ is a beautifully written, humorous and very, very clever novel. When I first read that how Grace, her thoroughly modern heroine, was accidently transported through a time portal to the thirteenth century and into clutches of a devilishly attractive (but impoverished) medieval knight with one eye on her ransom, I was hooked.
How the heck is the author going to pull this off? I wondered.
But pull it off she does. On the way to a believable and satisfying ending, we are treated to a brilliant evocation of medieval England which heaves with corruption and intrigue. The remote and beautiful wilderness of ancient Northumberland rings out with the sound of clashing swords, the hiss of arrows, thundering hooves and the chink of coin bags changing hands in shady deals. It is all there: a spirited and sensual romance, an action-packed adventure story, hidden treasure, revengeful and devious barons and corpulent and corrupt clergy.
Beset on all sides by danger and deception, with only a small band of loyal followers and their wits to help them, Grace and Miles of Wildewood are powerful team and a realistic pair of lovers.
I can't wait for the sequel.
