Jean Rombaud has been living peacefully for twenty years with his family after beheading and saving Anne Boleyn. Now his angry son, Gianni, has made a pact with Rome to find Anne's powerful hand. His wife, Beck, is angry with Jean for pushing Gianni away. His daughter, Anne, named for Queen Anne is trying to bring peace to both her family and her land. Spanning the courts of France and England before leaving the shores of Europe for the untamed wilderness of North America, this novel takes readers for a ride.
After being introduced to CC Humphreys via Vlad: The Last Confession and The French Executioner, I knew I was in for an action filled ride. This novel focuses on Jean and Beck's children. The plot is amazing and the emotions are very real. I enjoyed the book, but some parts were really hard to read (read sad). I hope that Humphreys will continue this series so we can see some of the characters again. I think readers fall in love with the eclectic cast and will want to see them again.
Thanks to the publisher for a review copy.
