In anticipation of reading "Rebel" I made sure that I read "Healer" and "Thief" first. They start off the trilogy of the three brothers. Ronan is the star of Healer. Cadon is the center of Thief (he is the bad guy in Healer and then finds redemption in Thief). And now we finally get to know the youngest brother, Alyn. A key point to each of these books is that as strong as the three brothers are, each one is matched by a strong woman. In "Rebel" we meet Kella, a woman who has fallen from grace and Alyn steps up to offer her redemption. The whole trilogy is amazing and "Rebel" is a fantastic way to end it. I was sorry to see the trilogy wrap up and be done. Linda Windsor has a gift for historical research and especially this time period (Arthur, Guinevere, Merlin...). She doesn't dabble in it, she immerses herself in it and takes us along with her. What a joy in the journey!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Amid the often chaotic "country inn" atmosphere, Windsor has written quite a collection of historical and contemporary romances as both Linda Windsor and Linda Covington. Windsor's historical novels are known for her distinctive voice and flair for incorporating history with romance and adventure, while her contemporary romantic comedies are guaranteed to warm the heart, lift the spirit, and tickle the funny bone. Windsor insists that nothing is more entertaining than life itself, be it past or present.
With a degree in education from her local university, one of the greatest rewards to the innate teacher in Linda was hearing from readers that her Irish Gleannmara series was approved for some middle school English book reports as well as being used in home-schooling. To Windsor, entertaining, or keeping the pages turning, while educating is as much as any historical novelist can ask for.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Determined to find him at all costs, Kella defies the queen’s orders and sets out for Pictish territory. Her foster brother Alyn, a disillusioned priest who questions his calling, agrees to help her. The journey itself is perilous. But it’s their secrets that land Kella and Alyn in a viper’s nest of treachery that threatens both their lives and the future of Albion.
Can they summon the love and faith they need to find their way not only out of danger, but into happiness? Brilliantly researched, vividly imagined, and movingly written—a memorable climax to the Brides of Alba series.
