Sweeping gorgeous romance 10 Jan 2003
By Desmond Chan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Josie Litton's final installment in her trilogy on the mythic Akoran monarchy weaves political intrigue, supernatural elements and gorgeous romance into a grand finale. Castles In The Mist focuses on the delicate romance between destined couple - nurse Brianna Wilcox and helming ruler Atreus in the throes of war and passion. Brianna goes back to England to learn truths on her heritage and recover the lost memory of how she ended on Akoran shores after a shipwreck that separated her and her parents. Atreus, who had visions of Brianna as his future wife during the arduous trials to becoming the ruler hides a hidden truth that may destroy their love. Brianna wonders whether he pursues her out of love or obligation.
Filled with sensual moments between two strong and intelligent protagonists, Josie Litton brings unadulterated passion and romance against a backdrop of chaos spearheaded by cunning rebel honcho Delios who is set to usurp the throne from Atreus. Family ties are threatened when Brianna's brother Polonus is misled by Delios. The danger towards the end is climatic, gripping and harrowing as Brianna is held hostage; Atreus faces his dilemma in giving his beloved Brianna the freedom to leave. Ms. Litton's emotional grip and magical narration sweeps you away to a fantasy abound with castles and adventure that gives a most satisfying end.

strong Regency romance 5 Nov 2002
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Vanax of Akora visits England to ostensibly meet with the Prince Regent and to see his siblings, their wives and children. However, deep in his heart Atreus knows he really has come to call on Brianna, an orphan who grew up on his island kingdom. Atreus knows that one day she will be his beloved wife if he can persuade her that they belong together as he has seen in his ritual dream.

Brianna is in England trying to learn more about her salad days before an Akoran couple adopted her. She vows never to return to Akora until she learns more about her parents, who died at sea. Atreus knows much about what happened to her parents on that fateful day and wonders if their love could survive if he tells her the truth.

The final novel in the Akoran trilogy is a strong Regency romance with a twist of insight into a different island kingdom. The use of real personage like Prime Minister Liverpool adds a feel of authenticity through the diplomatic activities of the two nations. The return of the support cast from the previous two books makes the novel feel like a homecoming, but clearly belongs to the delightful duo, Atreus and Brianna. Though Akora remains too utopian (still not sure why there are rebels who want modernization), fans of Josie Litton will relish this engaging closeout entry that leaves the door open for the next generation stories.

Josie's back on track - a romantic, intricate story 6 Nov 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
A nice end to this trilogy. Josie had me worried with the second book in the series Kingdom of Moonlight which I found a serious disappointment. But she's back in form with Castles in the Mist. Atreus is a stalwart, duty-bound but lovable (and sexy!) hero; Brianna is an intelligent, freethinking and independent heroine. No shrinking violet, she's more than a match for this man used to command though she does so in a calm and quiet manner.
Brianna is English by birth, but was shipwrecked on the shores of Akora then adopted and raised by a family there that she loves deeply. But she also has fragments of memory of her parents and travels to England to pursue her past (and possibly her future). She finds an endearing aunt and uncle only too willing to provide family support and entree into London Society.
Atreus is all Akoran. He was selected Vanax (leader) of Akora and takes his responsibilities seriously. During the ritual of selection, a vision of a woman appeared to him and he understands that this woman is to be his wife. He finally discovers who she is, but within days she has left for England. Impatient and a bit worried that she may not return, he follows her to England to pursue, woo and win her. She succumbs to his charms, but is skeptical of his certainty of their shared destiny, and torn by the possibilities available to her should she decide to stay in England.
Ultimately, she agrees to return with him to Akora and think about his proposal. But "what a tangled web we weave"! Does Brianna sympathize with a rebel group on Akora opposed to Atreus' rule? And what does Atreus know of the truth about the shipwreck that killed her parents? Can their fragile relationship survive the truth?
If you are new to this trilogy, it starts with the wonderful Dream Island, followed by KOM and ending with CITM. The next trilogy (coming Summer 2003) will be about the second generation of these Akoran/English unions. I look forward to reading the further adventures of these families!
