Book 1 - Born of no Man - A great start to a new Series concerning the time of the great Merlin. This story begins with the conflicts before his birth. The authors' research brings us facts and fiction so well melded together that it leaves you saying, "Wow, I didn't know that" then brings you back to "wait, did that really happen, or is it just part of this story." The main characters have background stories both good (for those times)and bad; filled with stoic bravery and some with deep pain and anger. We have hero's and heroines who will have to go through both mental and physical anguish, as well as unexpected love. The story ends at the start of the amazing and supposedly magical life of Merlin. We've seen and read many versions of this mans life, but I have a feeling this one will be the most enthralling one of all
Book 2 - Dragon King - OMG. I loved this story, it's a grand classic of historical romance. Oh, how I'd love to see this as a movie. As always the details, no matter small or large, are amazing. Actual events, mixed in with the story make you wonder if the story could possibly be true, These details, the strength of the characters, along with the authors' amazing storytelling abilities, makes you want to read all about the beliefs of that time, of curses, a duty to Lord's, Kings and their people. Of course, you'll also read of unlikely alliances through marriage without love. There are so many more fascinating details in this book that you won't want to miss. Dragon Kin is now one of my favorite historical books of all time; that is until this fabulous story-telling author releases her next book.
Book 3 - Pendragon Rises - The author never lets us down. This is the third book in the "Once and Future Hearts," a series that takes place during the time of King Arthur. A magnificent telling of finding love where least expected; of men and women both strong and weak. A new story told within stories of old, filled with adventure, lust, betrayals, beauty, and blood. It takes hold of the reader, makes our hearts beat faster, has us sighing at the wondrous feeling of love, gasping at the disaster that lust brings and the "ohhh" when you can put two and two together from having read about King Arthur and you realize what's coming and can't do a thing about it. Pick up this box set and read a story that will immerse you within the legends of old while giving you a new view of circumstances that you'd swear was always there but somehow just missed it.
