Many thanks to the reviewers who in recent weeks have told their readers how much they’ve enjoyed The Cross and the Dragon, a tale of love amid the wars and blood feuds of Charlemagne’s reign.
I usually don’t like the idea of being responsible for someone missing sleep, but when that reason is my book, I’ll make an exception. Denise at So Many Books So Little Time writes, “I absolutely loved this book! I haven’t read anything about this period in history so this story was completely new and exciting for me. The characters, romance and the setting sucked me in from page one and I stayed up pretty late a few nights because I couldn’t put this book down.” Visit So Many Books So Little Time for the complete review.
At The Edible Bookshelf, DelSheree Gladden writes, “The depth of reality captured in this book is commendable. The details of the homes, character’s dress, politics, and religious beliefs were all carefully crafted. I had no problem putting myself in the time period and believing the events of the story.” Visit The Edible Bookshelf for the complete review.
Erin Al-Mehairi, host of Oh for the Hook of a Book, writes, “I read it almost in one sitting, during which I could not bear to put it down for fear I would fail Alda, her female protagonist, in her pursuits and that I’d lose the momentum of the exhilaration I was feeling of reading such a wonderful novel. Yes, I loved it!! I was swept away into a glorious tale of a strong young woman and her man, who equally loved her as much during a time when men didn’t always love women as romantically as would be desired.” Visit Oh for the Hook of a Book for the full review and a chance to enter a giveaway for a signed copy.
