From the Back Cover
"Medieval England is depicted with unflinching realism and sweeping panorama. However, the thoroughly modern heroine imprints her own personality quirks into the narrative, resulting in a story both somber and light-hearted."-Romantic Times on Lady Robyn
"Terrific historical fiction, complete with a deliciously romantic love story and some pretty good witchcraft."-Booklist on Knight Errant
"Comical, moving, and inventive, Knight Errant is a terrific beginning to Robertson's new trilogy."-St. Louis Post-Dispatch

It doesn't even have many pretentions to historical accuracy; the time period (Wars of the roes - late-ish 15th century) is variousl referred to as The Middle Ages, Medieval and on at least two occasions as 'The Dark Ages'!!!!
The blurb would have you beleive this is a time-travelling historical romance. Hmmmm, I don't think there was anything particularly romantic about it - there was sex, but not romance. The language was at time pretty vulgar and the characters seemed pretty irrrational at times.
Not a book I would recommend.

This is an odd series: I would imagine the principal fan base would be those who are interested in the War of the Roses. This makes it difficult to understand why the outcome of the story is presented as an unknown. Anyone geeky enough about history to know who Edward, Earl of March was surely knows who he became - and whom he married. Still the time travel element provides a good deal of fun and the romance is well done and intriguing. While I am enjoying this book somewhat less than the previous two, I am caught up enough in the story to want to finish it, and can certainly see myself re-reading it to pick up on nuances I missed, particularly in the first book.
All in all, for those who just can't get enough of the Yorkist side of things, this series should be an amusing read.
