Sort order. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the books in the Scottish Crown series. I am hoping that Carol Umberger is in the middle of writing another series. I like her style. I even like the way the book is put together with the thicker pages and uneven pages. This book is a good example of what happens when a person's view of history is clouded by prejudice, and bigotry. Historical facts seem to have been distorted to suit an individual agenda. The attitude towards certain groups in this case the English and events is biased and hypocritical.
The English are condemned as dishonourable for attacking the Scottish army at night, in the first chapter. Later the the book the Scottish army attacks the English at night, but for them it is perfectly accepta This book is a good example of what happens when a person's view of history is clouded by prejudice, and bigotry. Later the the book the Scottish army attacks the English at night, but for them it is perfectly acceptable to do so.
In the prologue Edward II and his knights attack a Scottish village and kill women and children. For this he is demonized as an evil child-killer. The massacre in question, however, never took place and the village does not exist. The English are condemned for inflicting suffering on innocent people throughout the series.
Knighthood is depicted as a sacred vocation, that requires it's adherents to live upright, righteous lives. As opposed to the reality of knights as violent men in a brutal age, living by their own rules. If you want something that is balanced perspective on historical events, and realistic, multi-faceted characters, avoid this entire series. Jun 22, Jeannette Garcia rated it it was amazing. What a fantastic ending to the Scottish Crown series! I absolutely loved the budding romance that developed between two childhood friends. Early on I knew I would just love Nola. Her character was a delight to read I caught myself smiling every time she entered a scene because I knew I was in for a special treat.
Kiefer, on the other hand, captivated me from early on. I expected Scottish heroes to be portrayed as boorish men. Boy, was I wrong I found his character to be completely endearing and I quickly found that I was totally enamored with him. I was actually pretty thrilled that this book didn't contain an excessive amount of war scenes I have such a soft spot for this book because it ties all of the former stories together with this one. I'm glad to have finished this series View all 4 comments.
I absolutely loved this book. Carol did a magnificent job. Her heroine is totally lovable and though the hero leaves something to be desired at various points in the book, you also feel his suffering and can't help but take him into your heart as Nola did. If you haven't read the previous books in the sequel, it's a little easy to get lost among all the names. Other than that, Carol does a wonderful job showing the frailty of Keifer's heart and how God guides him through life.
I like that Keifer I absolutely loved this book. I like that Keifer's troubled soul isn't dealt with in an instance. It show the reality of how God grows a us, slowly leading us to peace with Himself and peace with the life He has given. In this book, peace is finally restored to Scotland and the entire series mirrors the struggle for peace in Keifer's heart. And while the ending scene in this book isn't a love scene, it is very fitting and satisfying.
I love the way she tied everything up.
