Publisher's Summary

Intrigue, suspicion, and rivalry among the royal princes casts a shadow on the court of Owain, king of north Wales....

The year is 1143, and King Owain seeks to unite his daughter in marriage with an allied king. But when the groom is murdered on the way to his wedding, the bride's brother tasks his two best detectives - Gareth, a knight, and Gwen, the daughter of the court bard - with bringing the killer to justice.

And once blame for the murder falls on Gareth himself, Gwen must continue her search for the truth alone, finding unlikely allies in foreign lands and ultimately uncovering a conspiracy that will shake the political foundations of Wales.

    "Just as good as the book."

    I've read the book for this one, and just like the After Cilmeri series it follows along quite well. There weren't any stops or weird pauses except when my phone decided to be weird about playback. I did notice a few times where the voices sounded far too similar to each other so it was a little difficult to tell which character was speaking, but aside from that Ms. Schroeder did an exceptional job.

    "a good read... i mean listen"

    I am hooked on the series. I listen to audio books while I work and this series is particularly good for that; engaging without being distracting.

    "decent story horrible word usage"

    The story was interesting and entertaining. I struggled with the author only using the word Said throughout the entire book. Use a Thesaurus and this would be an amazing book.

    Story
    "Odd Narration"

    I almost didn't persist with this one because I hated the narration at the beginning. The narrator speaks in an American accent reading a story about 12th century Wales. But the oddest part is when she breaks into dialogue in a strange sort of Irish accent. I suppose it's supposed to be a Welsh accent, but who knows? I had the Kindle version as well, and after reading some of the book I was (for some reason) better able to accept the audio version.

    The story is pretty good, with an interesting twist, and it's one of those that is based on many actual historical figures and events. The author manages to work her mystery into real history in a seamless fashion, which is always a neat trick.

    I probably won't continue with the series, since the story seems to be heading in the direction of more romance and less mystery (a preview of the next installment is at the end of this recording), and that's not what I prefer. But a good effort about an interesting time (1143) and place (Wales).

    Note: there is a repetition of 8-9 minutes in the middle (chapter 19 on the audio), but once you get past that technical glitch, it's fine.

    "the good knight"

    Reasonably accurate historically. Narration is well done. Story line is likeable but not tension filled.

    Story
    "No Cadfael Mysteries or Outlander substitute"

    The book does not hold the time period well, while the hero and heroine do work through a clever mystery it is not the quality of writing of the Cadfael Mysteries in my opinion as some other review suggested. This is not up to the qualify of a Diana Gabaldon who does time travel so wonderfully well with time period realism in her books or books by Kathryn LeVeque who writes lovely medieval historical romances. I thought at some points in the book this may be a young adult book but then the books "Code Name Verity" by Elizabeth Wein and Graceling by Kristin Cashore are both young adult books that are superb. Neither character development nor story development hold true enough to the story line. I believe the book had potential with some editorial advice to be a quality mystery.
