I still can’t quite believe that Friday’s launch is over! It’s been a whirlwind of a weekend, and I’m thoroughly enjoying catching up on all the blog tour features, Q&As and reviews that have been going live. Here’s a summary of where we are so far…
First up, a review on Devilishly Delicious Book Reviews, from Friday: The book is a beautiful love story yet it is also an adventure. The author goes into detail with the raids and really puts the reader into the story. It is also filled with intrigue because Gray and Will share a connection because of their past. If you are looking for a book that is a breath-taking romance and adventure, you can’t go wrong with this historical fiction book! Looking forward to more in the series!
A review was also featured on Tizi’s Book Review, yesterday, and I can only apologise to anyone else who I’ve ruined the name Alexander for: What I truly liked about this story, that both characters slowly start trusting each other. Sometimes when you read a story, it’s POOF instant love. But here both Meg and Will go from dislike to trust to friendship to more.
Even when their love is tested, they both know they cannot just run away, but must face their fate and make best of it. They both know what they feel for each other, but they also realize that their love will never be accepted and try to resist each other.
Also yesterday, we visited B For Book Reviews, for a fun interview, which I really enjoyed responding too, and I was thrilled with this review on Jaffareadstoo: Throughout the whole of The Raided Heart there is a good sense of history, this really was a dangerous time, and the author does a great job of keeping both the momentum of the action, and the intrigue alive in the imagination. I enjoyed the romantic element to the story and the constant danger that both Meg and Will encounter adds an exciting dynamic to this historical adventure. The Raided Heart is a well written and exciting historical saga about a dangerous time in history. A time when the border lands between the North of England and Scotland were alive with danger and warring families spent much of their time attempting to keep the peace between neighbours who could suddenly become deadly enemies on the turn of a sword blade.
Today, the wonderful reviews have kept flowing, and I’m so, so glad to read about people enjoying the book. First up is the lovely Book Magnet: The Raided Heart is an outstanding story; the historical setting is vividly described and the characters are so well developed that they virtually jump out of the page. I know Jennifer C. Wilson has been working on The Raided Heart for quite some time and I am delighted to say that it is well worth the wait.
Once again, a huge thanks to the wonderful bloggers who give up their time to host these tours; it makes such a difference to hear people are enjoying the book.
Let’s see what tomorrow brings!
