Best-selling author Jody Hedlund kicks off a new young adult series with a novella and full-length medieval romance.
Hedlund excels at providing a clean romance suitable for teens and adults alike. Family loyalty, adventure, intrigue, and more await the reader in this series. As always, Hedlund sets the stage with descriptive historical details and relatable characters in this clean romance, suitable for adults and older teens. The faith element is light but evident, and her characters make the reader want to cheer (or boo, in the case of Ethelwulf). She writes excellent adult fiction, with similar features, but her books are an even more welcome addition to young adult fiction.
Recommended for historical fiction fans, fans of courtly romance, and inspirational fiction fans. Readers will look forward to the second and third books (Foremost in September 2019, and Hereafter in October 2019).
