HFVBT Review for The Fifth Knight by EM Powell

Benedict Palmer is a fighting man. Born poor, he fought his way to wealth and a decent station in life. Joined with a group of knights sent to arrest Archbishop Thomas Becket, he is anxious to receive his bountiful reward. But the arrest goes wrong. Becket is murdered in cold blood and an anchoress is kidnapped by his group. Overhearing the torture he is to preform on the poor girl to get secret information, he knows he must act. He rescues the anchoress to ransom her back to the Church. But he will have to fight her, and those who want her valuable secrets.

This blurb for The Fifth Knight sounded interesting, but the book really surprised me! Benedict and Theodosia have great chemistry. Separately they are good, but together they are great! The plot starts out quick and never stops. This book packs surprises on every page it seems. I really enjoyed this fast pace action book, and it even has a bit of romance Something for everyone!!
