Gisborne: Book of Kings by Prue Batten

GISBORNE_Covers_KINGS-640x1024

Ever since I finished book two of this exquisite series, I had been waiting none too patiently for the third knowing that a wonderful treat was in store for me and the author did not disappoint.  As with the first two volumes the story is replete with tension filled plots and marvelously depicted characters.  The main female protagonist , Ysabel, while she has matured maintains that spark of spontaneity and stubborn willfulness that makes her such an intriguing character.   The main male protagonist, Gisborne, remains much the same as he keeps things close to the vest even though his heart is tormented with the kidnapping of their son and the growing hatred and need for revenge is kindled within. That is one of the author’s strengths, the ability to draw you into a character so completely that you feel what they feel; the anguish, the fears, and yes the joys.  Indeed the rich variety of characters makes this book(and the other two) such a joy to read. Descriptive scenes and scenery, a tale filled with the gamut of human emotions; well I can only say that it is a pleasure to have read all three and I am sure you will feel the same.  5 stars and more.
