This review is from: The Rose and the Warrior (Mass Market Paperback)
If this had been the first book that I had read by Karyn Monk then I would have really enjoyed it. Unfortunately I have already read "Once was a Warrior"....This book is almost a repeat of Once was a Warrior. The characters were the same, it had an almost similar plot and the same jokes.... it was very disappointing. Therefore if you have not read Once was a warrior then you will enjoy this book because it is funny, it has strong main characters as well as delightful secondary characters,etc etc. Which is why in all fairness the book deserves four stars. If you have read Once was a Warrior then don't bother.....In passing my quibble about Monk's books is that she seems to assume that, in the twelfth Century BC, that everybody could read! Including little children! I know that we are deaing with "Romance" books but come on try and get some of your more obvious facts correct!
