Monthly Giveaway: Lady Carliss by Chuck Black

Here's our second Monthly Giveaway on this blog - I feel like we've come so far in such a short amount of time! I hope our book discussions, reviews, and history posts are a blessing to y'all as you seek out books that are worth the read!

This month we will be giving away Lady Carliss and the Waters of Moorue by Chuck Black!!

Lady Carliss faces the challenge of her life. Can she save the kingdom before it’s too late?

Determined, smart and a master of both the sword and the bow, Lady Carliss has proven herself as a veteran Knight of the Prince. Returning from a mission of aid, Carliss is plunged into adventure once again as she searches for the marauders responsible for kidnapping a friends’ family. Along the way she is reunited with Sir Dalton and discovers that the struggle in her heart is far from over. When Dalton falls to the vicious attack of a mysterious, poisonous creature, Carliss finds herself in a race against time. As Dalton clings perilously to life she must find the antidote in the distant and strange city of Moorue.

While there Carliss uncovers the master plot of a powerful Shadow Warrior that will soon overtake the entire Kingdom. Her faith in the Prince and her courage as a knight are tested as she faces evil Shadow Warriors and a swamp full of dreadful creatures. The lives of many, including Dalton’s, depend on Carliss. But she cannot save them all, for time is running out.  She faces an impossible choice: save Dalton, or let him die so that others may live.

Journey to Arrethtrae, where these knights of noble heart live and die in loyal service to the King and the Prince. These knights are mighty, for they serve a mighty King. They are…the Knights of Arrethtrae!






Overall Impression:

The first time Chuck Black has written one of his books that had the main character a lady - and he did an outstanding job! Lady Carliss is full of action, adventure, suspense, betrayal, harrowing rescues, lovers in danger, and angels in disguise.

This book, in some respects, is a continuation of the book before this, Sir Dalton. If you can, I would suggest reading Sir Dalton first before reading Lady Carliss - so you can understand were their growing attractions came from, but I don't think it's entirely a necessity. But if you finish the book and wonder when and where their growing attraction for each other came from, get Sir Dalton and the Shadow Heart and it'll clear things up!! ;-)

Besides this little forewarning, the book is great! When Lady Carliss' dear friend Sir Dalton is bitten by a strange animal, she immediately goes in search of the antidote that is in the heart of the marshes of Moorue. While she is bravely trying to find the plant that will save his life, she gets mixed up in the dark schemes of a Shadow Warrior and she finds that either she abandon's a large group of the King's followers and hurry back to Dalton, or stay and save the King's people.

From the very first pages of this book, you are instantly caught up in an exciting adventure that doesn't stop its rollercoaster ride until you arrive at the last pages of the book! While this book is recommended for teen readers, it is great for readers of all ages - old and young alike! I have all of Chuck Black's books and am constantly picking them up to read them over again!
