A True Keeper...
on 12 September 2002
I much prefer this book to 'Lord of Fire' telling the story of Damien's twin, Lucien. I felt that this book stayed more true to Ms. Foley's style to which we were introduced in her first book - fast-paced, passionate, intense.
Damien, one of the twin Knight brothers is the classical tortured hero, just returned from a stint in the war against Napoleon. Hailed by his country as a great war hero, but hounded by horrific flashbacks from his time in the army he's convinced he's going insane (but clearly suffering from what we know as PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). He tries desperately to deny his growing feelings for his new ward, Miranda, who turns out to be the beacon of light in his nightmares of darkness. His anchor.
We, as readers, get to follow the tale of another Knight brother, written in Ms. Foley's wonderfully addictive style that ensnared me from the very beginning. This one's a true keeper. I can't wait to see who's next...
