BOOK REVIEW: "Honor" by Rachel Rossano
REVIEWS for the tour.
Reading Honor, I was afraid that by "clean" historical fantasy I would also be getting something very bland. Not that clean books are bland--far from it--but you will always get some of the authors who think that clean is synonymous with plain. Thankfully, this book is anything but boring!
Somewhere between Gail Carson Levine and J.R.R. Tolkien, the book is set in a fantasy world of olden times. As a rule, I don't usually read historical romances because they are all the same after a while. One thing blurs into another, but not here. The most memorable thing are the strong characters. They have actual personalities, and you can either love or hate them easily.
I love, love, LOVE the medieval times, and I have ever since I was little and watched the Disney version of Robin Hood! Even now, I love anything set during the times of kings, queens and knights. The valiancy, the fights, everything about it is so exciting! While Honor does tone down the violence quite a bit, it doesn't take away from the authenticity of it.
When a book is set in a specific place and time, I get disappointed if it's not accurate. Honor is definitely accurate! I love reading a book where you, as a reader, can tell the author not only did their homework, but really cares about the details in their story.
This was great fun for teens, adults and anyone who likes sweet romance with a good plot.
4/5--Exciting and wholesome.
