Book Review - Lady Carliss and the Waters of Moorue

Determined, smart and a master of both the sword and the boy, 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 friend's family. Along the way she is reunited with Sir Daltonand 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 fiath 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.


I'm having to rethink my "not that keen on fantasy-fiction" thinking. This book really pulled me in. I loved the honor shown by the the main character and how she struggled with having to make difficult decisions. She was always guided with her sense of what was right and I really admired that. This was another book that was hard for me to put down!
This book is part of "The Knights of Arrethtrae" Series and although I had not read the previous books in the series, it didn't matter. The story stood alone and I didn't have to be acquainted with the characters previously to understand who they are or how they fit into the story line. Again, this shows me what a great book it is because that's not always true of series books.
This book would also be great for your young reader; pre-teen and teenager. An excellent book to pull into your homeschooling curriculum as it shows honor, loyalty and faith. I enjoyed the book, though, too, so don't discount reading it yourself, parents! My son would have loved reading this (and still intends to) with me as part of our schooling.
You'll love the book and you can purchase it here.
