Inhaltsangabe

Squire William Raven has only one goal: to finally receive his spurs and become a knight. When his lord, Sir Robert de Cantilou, returns from a five-year crusade in the Holy Land, William wants nothing more than to impress him.

After Sir Robert's return, noble guests arrive from France, bringing intrigue to the castle. William is oblivious to the politics, as he's distracted by nightly visits from a faceless lover, a man who pleasures him in the dark and then leaves, a man he soon discovers is none other than his master, Sir Robert.

But William can't ignore the scheming around him when he overhears a plot to murder Robert. He becomes intent on saving his lord and lover from those who would see him killed....

    "A Fabulous Narrated Historical Romance"

    "Your eyes. [...] When the sun catches them right, they're the same colour as the eyes of a mountain lion. They hold the same ferocity, the same pride... the same lust for life."



    William Raven is the Lion of Kent, an aspiring squire who gives everything to earn his spurs and become a knight, but even more so earn the respect, desire, and love of his lord, Robert.

    Lord Robert is a confident man and just leader who's longing for the day William will be his equal.


    It was very satisfying to see William grow and become a better man, to see him struggle with his temper and master it to be of better service and help to his lord. I liked him very much because he wasn't perfect but human, because he gave his best, had doubts but dared everything, anyway. He is someone who you can relate to and, moreover, who you can look up to and learn from.

    Since this story is told from William's point of view, we get a less clear picture of Robert, but it's still vivid enough to recognise another great and distinct character. Robert appeals so much because he is so self-assured without being arrogant in the slightest. He's a strong and wise man but so very kind that you never feel less in his presence.

    It was a great experience to spend time with these two men, to see them grow as a person but also to see them start a loving relationship.


    I very much liked the setting of this story, too, and the world building was subtle and done very well. The writing is very atmospheric and dense. I had a clear feeling for the surroundings although there aren't any lengthy descriptions. The world just came to life very easily, more like an afterthought, supporting the plot and characters.


    I really enjoyed both reading and listening to this book, and writing this review, I can see even more how well written and crafted the story is.

    The narrator did a great job. I loved his voices and style. The french accents... OMG, fabulous :D

    For an audiobook, this is actually pretty cheap -> So get it! Recommended :)
