Knight to Remember

5 Stars! Charming suspense June 8, 2012

A Knight to Remember surprised me on many levels - in a great way. I guess I expected some amusing culture clashes as is so common since Catweazle entertained us. But the renaissance fair allows for a unique approach, where as many surprises await the modern day characters as the time-traveling knight. While there are amusing moments, this novel is filled with tension, conflict and drama as the middle ages come alive in the 21st century. Well-written and fast-paced, Reynold and Courtney's adventures kept me turning the pages.

I don't usually read much in the romance genre, but a friend gave me this one, because she thought I'd like the horse in it. She was right. I did like the horse... and a whole lot more. It is a nice story, believable despite its unrealistic elements, and with great elements of tension to keep the "pages" turning. I also found the historical elements interesting.

A story worth reading, even if you don't usually go for romances!

I have to begin this review by praising the intensity of this cover. I am a creature drawn to books based on my own visual cues, and I also must confess to having had a crush on Sir Lancelot of Camelot. I always imagined he'd have looked a lot like this brave warrior depicted here. If a cover does not call to me with power and intrigue, I skip by it and move on to a book that DOES call to me.

The cover for KNIGHT TO REMEMBER also teased the mother in me whose son and daughter-in-law chose to marry at the Pen Ren Faire in full costume...giving me a second reason to be drawn to the powerful chivarly of this cover. So with a stunning cover and a call to a time when knights protected and served with honor, I was, of course drawn to reading Maxine Douglas' book.

I am not going to give the story away, except to tell y'all it involves Time Travel and the nefarious deeds of an evil spell caster who just happens to have been the Queen of Sir Knight's realm back then...a jealous harpie who refuses to accept the one Knight she wants above all others wants and loves another...another she has no plans for him to ever claim...whether it be back then when Knights dueled and jousted for real, or here in the present where re-enactments allow her spirit to once more try to claim what her wicked machinations could not hold on to back then this is a brilliantly crafted story.

Albert Einstein believed time was not the fluid, chronological force of Nature our eyes and aging bodies would suggest. He believed Time could be warped, bent, and reshaped. I'm not certain he would've claimed dark magic created such warps, but Maxine Douglas' Queen Isabel performed such deeds bringing the Black Knight from the jousting field of her realm back then, to the jousting field of today's 21st century Bristol, Wisconsin Ren Faire re-enactment.

I LOVED this book. From the opening challenge and evil edict issued by the impudent and cruel queen, to the modern world where detail at the Ren Faire is excruciatingly accurate, this is a winner. The Black Knight, his true lady love, the wicked former queen, and Sir Thomas, The Black Knight's best friend, find themselves in modern times...and only the former queen Isabel Trenowyth and the Black Knight know just how much is amiss.

Well DONE Maxine...and your cover artist Nika Dixon...together you have given us a story that calls out to be devoured and devour it I did.

I am SO glad I picked this story up. It's a keeper.
