Book Description

31 Mar 2006 Heirs of Acadia (Book 4)
(Heirs of Acadia Book 4) Serafina’s painful memories of betrayal in Venice soften with her growing fondness for John Falconer, who has joined her father in a new commercial venture. His work thrusts him into America’s first gold rush--in the Carolina mountains! When Falconer fails to return from a trip as planned, rumors begin to swirl that his past has caught up to him--or worse. Serafina seeks hope from yet another tale: a "night angel," who pays a slave’s ransom in freshly-minted gold! With her father’s help, Serafina sets out to determine Falconer’s fate. But her own destiny hangs in the balance.

5.0 out of 5 stars must read 22 Jun 2014
By nan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
great fourth book in series continuing story of early america and anti slavery. only downside cannot find the loyal renegade which is the fifth book in the series. leaves one hanging mid air. come on amazon let it show on e books as the next one falconers quest is there, so what happens in between .
i have read all songs of arcadia up to book 6 and am waiting for book 7 when courage calls book to appear.
the heirs of arcadia series is magical and definately a must read as a follow on to arcadia series. the characters come to life on the pages and one really does not want the books to finish.
these authors are a joy to read and at 66 and an avid reader great to have found 3 new authors.
thank you. bye the way love my kindle and e books as i now have difficulty holding books but the kindle i can manage easily. well worth buying. just have to remember to recharge often. we all have kindles now in the family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good! 3 April 2006
By J9 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book was very well written. I read A LOT of christian fiction and this series has really captured the feel of the time period it is written in and weaves a very interesting tale that is quite engrossing. The book description up above is a little misleading in that it leads you to believe the story is going in one direction when really it takes an entirely different direction with its lead characters then what you are led to believe after the first book. I don't want to say too much, or give anything away. The ending is very surprising and not what I expected and slightly frustrating because it leaves you hanging and the next book doesn't come out till early next year of 07. But it really is very well written, like I said, not how I expected it to end at all and I am not sure if I like how the story and relationship of main characters is ending up but I still highly recommend it if you've read the first book which was VERY good too. It should be interesting to read the rest of this series....can't wait for the next one!

1.0 out of 5 stars Sad Disappointment ... 29 Mar 2014
By PJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A disappointing sequel to The Noble Fugitive. The storyline is basically unbelievable, especially the new love interests for John and Serafina. They characters they eventually fall in love with are flat and do not seem real which makes the new love relationships just plain wrong. After weaving such a beautiful relationship between Serafina and John in The Noble Fugitive the authors should have followed through and let the relationship blossom and bloom into greater depths, instead of "cooking" up new love interests and apparently dropping the relationship altogether in the last book of the series. Ada was totally flat and scarcely in the book enough to become real to the reader. Also the historical facts were not always accurate.

If you have not read the prequel to this story you may be alright with the storyline, but for those of us who read The Noble Fugitive this book was a sad disappointment indeed!

2.0 out of 5 stars Sadly to Say, Not the Best Book in This Series 2 Oct 2011
By Lucinda R. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After reading the Song of Acadia series by T. Davis Bunn and Janette Oke, I was enthused to begin the sequel series by Bunn and his wife, Isabella. Despite a bit of a letdown in quality of writing and story construction, I did enjoy The Innocent Libertine enough to keep reading. Then I persevered through the second book,the third and now the fourth book, The Night Angel. I can honestly say that every other book in the series has been disappointing, while the alternate pulls it together enough to make me want to keep reading the series.

For those that are wondering, there is very little connection between characters in both series - only a brief reference here and there to distant relatives or characters connected to the original books, seemingly only to qualify the Heirs of Acadia as a sequel to the earlier Oke/Bunn series.

The Night Angel, however interesting the plot attempted to be, was the most disappointing of all. This was especially disappointing to me because the description of the story seemed inviting. The anti-slavery movement of the 19th century was much more worthy of a good story than this book attempts to give. The characters in this novel are somewhat weak, yet the biggest offense of all in this particular book is the awkwardly constructed storyline that is ridiculously unbelievable in a number of scenes. Despite the touching scenes with Falconer sharing the gospel from a jail cell, and the love and care of his friends who rise to the occasion to help him in his hour of need, the story utterly falls short at the end. This is largely due to the character of Vladamir, who was almost comical in his melodramatic portrayal as the villain in the story. When the story comes to its climax his response to the situation was completely out of character considering the authors' building efforts to describe his utterly evil nature. Frankly, I was appalled at the way this scene played out. The near showdown aspect of it came across as a B-rated Italian western movie with a handful of Anabaptists thrown in.

I was also frustrated to no end by the attempt at describing Serafina as an artist. Why didn't the authors mention this aspect of her character in the preceding books? Her passion and drive as an artist described in this book wouldn't have just suddenly appeared. Also, the authors clearly do not understand the use of art materials, which weakened Serafina's character substantially and nearly ruined the book for me. For instance, painting with watercolors on canvas in this period of history? How ridiculous!! Also, the use of easels for watercolor painting is totally wrong due to drips it would cause. There were many inaccuracies in the uses of art mediums such as these in this book that led me to complete distraction.

One of the most compelling things about historical fiction is the idea that the story COULD have taken place this way. It takes well researched historical facts combined with strong, excellent narrative story telling to make an historical fiction novel worth the read. The Night Angel and preceding books in the Heirs of Acadia series minimally qualify in this. Though entertaining enough to pass the time reading and learning a bit about history and groups of people, the Bunn/Bunn partnership as authors is no match to Oke/Bunn in the least. The first Acadia series beats this one, hands down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent 21 Feb 2007
By Julie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Maybe I'm being a smidgen on the generous side with the 4 stars, but compared to other stuff written by Bunn this is gold. The characters sort of grow on you...at least they did for me. As for the writing, it's adequate but nothing stunning or wonderful. The dialogue's believable, for the most part anyways. The cover is very nice. The plot is at times a mite boring but generally the heroes end up okay so life's all good.
The concept of the Night Angel is neat. Okay, that's my scattered thoughts about this book.
