READ AN EXCERPT:
King's Knight by Regan Walker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The King’s Knight by Regan Walker is a 2016 publication.
Enticing, captivating, and exciting!!
This is the fourth book in Regan Walker’s Medieval Warrior’s series, but can be enjoyed as a stand alone.
The opening paragraphs of this novel grabbed my attention, as a dire situation puts Merewyn in a very serious and tense situation, but is heroically rescued by Sir Alexander of Talisand, otherwise known as ‘The Black Wolf.’
This event, as well as her personal heritage, prompts Merwyn to take a personal vow to never be a victim a man’s treachery again. She takes up archery as a way of protecting herself and over the years becomes quite proficient, even able to hold her own against her male counterparts.
But, despite her ability to protect her body and virtue, her heart is still vulnerable to Alexander, but her commonality and illegitimacy prevent any kind of a legitimate relationship between them.
Alex is very amorous with the ladies, but his parents have chosen a proper bride for him, but once he returns home, and sets eyes on the beautiful Merwyn, he realizes she is the only woman he wants to spend his life with.
I’m a big fan of Medieval fiction and romance, and as I’ve said many times before, Regan Walker’s attention to historical details and authentic history is astounding!
This story has plenty of court intrigue added to the angst ridden romantic entanglements between Alex and Merwyn.
Alex is the type of hero that makes my heart skip a beat. He must cope with impending war, honoring his father’s wishes, and his feelings for Merwyn.
As with all of Ms. Walker’s historical novels, this one is well researched and true to the era of time. For me, this one seemed a little more focused on the romantic elements than in previous chapters, providing a different sort of suspense, which is welcome and gives the story more potential to reach a broader audience, without sacrificing the authenticity and tone of the times represented.
I have enjoyed this series immensely and look forward to future installments as the series progresses into future generations.
