like the other reviewer-the "hero" of this book threw me off it-I quit about 60 pages in.
A truly unlikeable male lead. This knight, who is also of wizard blood-is vain, arrogant, controlling and cruel. He has no problem with going to Scotland, taking over a castle, nearly killing three young boys when he first gets there, threatening to hang any scottish person who vandalizes his property, throwing out the dead crusaders betrothed and her toddler-until he sees her, of course, then he decides he'll keep her around for a "tup", then, in his words, send her on her way!?!
I like reading medievels-and do not mind the knight who must be hard on the battlefield. But everyone wants a knight to be honorable off it-and this one definately not.
1 star for a slew of truly unlikeable characters that make this book pretty much unreadable for me.
