Superb fusion of fantasy and historical romance,
This review is from: The Court of the Midnight King (Paperback)
Freda Warrington has always written lyrical, intensely imagined books across the fantasy spectrum, from vampires to epic trilogies, but in this book she brings along her private passion for the historical figure of Richard III and the combination of dazzling alternative history and smouldering romance is thoroughly enjoyable from first page to last.
Purists will notice she did her homework on the history but those who don't know Richard's original story won't miss a thing. She also brings forward a thoughtful examination of the Christian/occult conflicts in a credible and compelling extra dimension which evokes the feeling of living in an earlier age very keenly.
A pleasure to read. Tell all the romance fans and the fantasy fans you know about it.
