This is my favourite of the Gareth and Gwen Mysteries series.
The plot in The Fourth Horseman is more complex than in the previous books, a real political intrigue, with spies everywhere. Well, there are not so many spies but they all seem to turn their coats so many times that you do not trust anyone anymore. I thought I had an idea of whom the traitor and muderer was quite early on, but Sarah Woodburry laid many false trails that I thought ''Nah, can't be'' and then changed my mind, and again doubt would creep in.
There was more tension too, in this book, because the couple, with Prince Rhun and Prince Hywel, had left their comfort zone of Wales and had crossed the border to England. They arrived at Newcastle upon Lyme, the fief of Robert, Earl of Gloucester, brother and staunch supporter of Empress Maud. Therefore, even though the Earl of Gloucester had sought an alliance with King Owain, the mistrust between the two parties was very palpable. Also due to Caldwaladr plotting with Ranulf, Robert's son in law.
We also see a tender side to Prince Hywell. But I am not sure I like that. But if it is what the author wanted, then I am fine to go along with this new romantic prince.
Having read the fourth books in the series, nearly one after the other, I can honestly say that it has nicely improved since the prequel The Bard's Daughter (A Gareth and Gwen Medieval Mystery). The series was good from the beginning, but now it has become very good and I am sure with the next one, it will be even better.
I have seen the characters evolve into sound characters. Gareth and Gwen have always been my two favourites and I am glad to see them come into their own as characters and they are loveable as usual. And at last, they are married.
My only disappointment is that I have now to wait for the next one. I hope it is not going to be a too long wait.
N.B. Incidentally, The Good Knight (A Gareth and Gwen Medieval Mystery) - the second book in the series (or the first one if you do not count the prequel as a full fledged mystery) is still free at moment of writing this review. Take advantage of it, if you want to discover more about The Gareth and Gwen mysteries series.
A trip accompanying the Princes to Newcastle doesn't start well for the duo & seems to decline from there due to the murders they seem to attract. Norman territory, spies & a web of lies from all angles make this a brilliant read.
