i really like this book i am almost finished it and it is an easy read if you are not a big reader.
if you like romance novels this is a very good one.
the story is in poems but it dose not rhyme so it is easy to read.
i really liked this book
i recomend this book for ages 12 and up.

Great story, but the whole book used poems to tell the story which I didn't like. But if you like reading poems to make a whole story, read , if not, you should probably stay away from this book.

I have to admit the format threw me off when I opened the book, but once I got past that it was a really great read! :)

The author, Lisa Ann Sandell, has a unique style that is very palatable and flows from one scene to the next. Her characters were realistic and human and I truly felt their feelings as I read them (especially in the last few chapters). I enjoy Arthurian tales very much and feel that Sandell truly did King Arthur and his knight's justice. I recommend this book to those who enjoy adventure, drama, coming of age, and romance.

To have loved once and to have not loved again, is like never loving before. I read this book and it reminded me of a poem i wrote a while back.
