I didn't care for this book as much as I liked the 3 other books by Kathryn Le Veue that I've read thus far The story line was okay enough but I just never really connected to the characters and I felt there were rather unnecessary deaths that did nothing to contribute to the plot Some of the situations felt contrived and I did not care for the ending at all Also there were instances of import that were left out of the story completely Finally I did not particularly care for the dreams the heroine kept having throughout the book I have no issue with her having premonitions but I felt like these gave away so much of the ending To me it was much like the stories that begin with a prologue or scene at the climax of the book and then chapter one picks up sometime prior to that scene It just gives you a major spoiler for what is to come later so that you never get to have any great surpriseI noticed this author is still stuck on over using the word massive as an adjective though at least with this book it was not always the hero the word was used to describe She also over did it with enormous but at least I did see a gargantuan and a few other synonyms When she was describing the castles and baileys I felt like expansive sprawling extensive etc would have been a nice change over massive merely because the word seems to be a favorite of this author's I did a word count check for massive It came up 41 times in this book and that does not include massively or other closely related words I did not remember to do one for enormous but I rather suspect it would have had similar results As with a previous review I mentioned this author's tendency to overdo it with the word well when a character is hesitant in his or her speech We see that still happening here I was laughing trying to imagine this massive warrior expressing himself the way it was written with a well thrown in there on one of his hesitant dialogues It just didn't jive for me There were also editing issues again Like with a previous review I gave on one of her books you can tell someone used spell check because the words that are incorrect are words that are wrong in the context but still words that would be recognized with a spell check program I am not sure why this author does not utilize a proof reader or editor to catch these little flukes but the keep coming up For the most part her stories are fun and original but they all seem to have the same issues which are normally so easily corrected in the editing phaseI was able to read the book entirely and I wasn't bored but I wasn't engrossed into it either I likely could have walked away even 75% of the way through the story and not thought twice about it after a day or two It just wasn't one of those books that will stick with a reader long after finishing I usually want when I come to the end of a book With this one I was just glad it was finishedAh well This is the fourth book of her's I've read and the other three were very enjoyable Every author is allowed a dud every now and again I suppose

Lord of War Black Angel review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ 1356 ADIt is warring times for England as the Black Prince sweeps his way through France waging nasty warfare on the population Masterminding this brutal strategy is the knight they call the Black Angel Brandt de Russe Duke of Exeter is the brains behind the prince’s w The beautiful young woman and mistakes her for a whore Grossly insulted Ellowyn threatens the man that all sane men fear And so begins the fiery passionate and deep love story that transcends families kings and two continents building to the Battle of Poitiers where Brandt is on the front lines In battle no man is his eual but even the most powerful of men are prisoners of their own hearts. This is a exciting story of knights battles and strifeYou have to love a knightthat when the woman he is falling in love with him tells him his heart is hurthe reacts by asking her if she will heal it for him That kind of sincerity and vulnerability in a battle hardened knight touched my heart I don't even think Brandt the hero in this story knew he was starved for love until the heroine Ellowyn gifted him with hers Brandt according to his reputation is the 'Black Angel of Death' He kills unmercifully with cold indifference and is brilliantly cunning Most of this is true but he is also a man of great emotion and when given the chance to lovehe loves very deeply He is also somewhat socially awkward with a dry witty sense of humor These are the things that I think make him very enduring to a reader Ellowyn starts off as kind of a shrew This uickly changes once you get to her know her better She is sometimes abrasive and stubborn But she is also kind considerate witty and EXTREMELY loyal I think she may be one of the best heroines KLV has brought to life I like 'em feisty ; I really enjoyed getting to know all the minor characters and getting to revisit some old stories of KLV's Such as 'The Falls of Erith' and 'Dark One Dark Knight' If you havent read these two stories you must They are some best by this author Dark Knight is actually about Brandts great great great grandson and Falls of Erith is about Ellowyns grandfatherI did feel like the ending was a little abrupt but the great epilogue than makes up for it There also a few editing problems but for me it didn't deter form the story at all I was waaaay to engrossed in the characters to care about thatI also really enjoyed the dream seuence in the beginning of some chaptersit added a great extra dimension to the storyIf you enjoy a story that is heavy with battle and action this is the story for you It's medieval romance at its best and is a page turner from start to finish

Lord of War Black Angel1356 ADIt is warring times for England as the Black Prince sweeps his way through France waging nasty warfare on the population Masterminding this brutal strategy is the knight they call the Black Angel Brandt de Russe Duke of Exeter is the brains behind the prince’s war machine a mountain of a man who is as cunning as he is frightening In battle no man is his eualThe Lady Ellowyn de Nerr. A friend of mine reviewed this saying that despite being recently written it read old school likeWell I didn't need to hear so when this showed up on for free I jumpedIt did read all old school like and I'd probably recommend this to Julie Garwood fans but there were parts that dragged and it might because real life kept butting in but when I paused I was a little reluctant to pick it up again but when I was reading I couldn't stopThis had the solid makings of a 4 star read I liked Ellowyn I wanna be her when I grow up xD And Brandt was so swoony total Garwood hero mould And I really liked the writingTill about 60% inThat's when the dragging really started though there were hints before that tooAnd I hated the endingIt was so abrupt and maybe even badly written It didn't uite fit in with the build up we got from page oneUnfortunately I'm not jumping into the next book just yet but I'm not giving up either
