She Serves the Realm by Lee Swanson
My ranking: 3 of 5 stars

She Serves The Realm is e-book 4 of the No Man Is Her Grasp collection of medieval adventures.

Christina is masquerading as her brother Frederick Kohl; she is firstly a service provider and secondly a knight within the court docket of Edward II of England. On this story Edward has Christina chasing round England on his behalf, as he fights with the barons over taxations and his beloved pal the Earl of Cornwall.

Christina can also be despatched to the continent escorting the Earl into exile whereas she trades in wool and wine. All this she does out of loyalty to the king and in hopes that he’ll allow her marriage, as Frederick, to a sure royal lady-in-waiting.

That is the primary e-book that I’ve learn on this collection; it was apparent that I had missed out on a few of Christina’s background. The sophisticated historic particulars of the period have been handled properly. But it surely was the small print concerning the Hanseatic league of buying and selling retailers that I discovered most fascinating and I may simply have learn extra about this. Nevertheless, it might properly have been coated extra totally in earlier books within the collection.

There’s an affectionate romance for Christina, however I felt it slowed the story and have become a bit unbelievable at instances. Give me the historical past of the day with all of the concern and combating, and I might have been simply as completely happy.
