Can a Gypsy girl host the Mistress of War without disrupting her wedding Knight?
Bennett, a knight of the White Tower, and Stella, a Romany girl with a deadly blade, find themselves deeply in love -- and on the run. Their new marriage is complicated by the rescue of Palima, Mistress of War, who was imprisoned in a stone for her part in the battle against evil.
Will Bennett’s marriage survive a stranger dwelling within his new wife’s head? And can the three of them rally the Romany and defend the kingdom from Mandrake, who prolongs his life by absorbing the energy of men and women who die on his obscene altar?
Picking up where the first book Jannette left off, the second volume in the Chronicles of the White Tower follows Bennett and Stella on their quest to defeat the dark wizard Mandrake.
Keep in mind that though this is the second book in a series the story itself is strong enough to be read as a standalone. Characters from the first book are metioned but it is not vital to have read the first book to enjoy the second. That being said – I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Mark Patrick has woven and exciting world filled with fierce battles, frightening enemies and mystical beings.
My favorite character in the book has to be Stella. Her strength and tenacity are a great boon to Bennett and his quest but she also has a wonderful way of keeping the knight in check that gives their relationship a great depth and a realistic feel. There are romantic elements to this story but it si more action and adventure than romance. The relationship that develops between Bennett and Stella works to enhance the entire story without overwhelming it.
I am truly looking forward to the nest installment of the Chronicles of the White Tower series.
