My top thoughts:
I continue to adore this series. The combination of magic, Arthurian legend, and murder mystery make every book (so far) a treat.
What I liked/didn’t like:
In A Knight to Remember, a few weeks have passed since the end of the previous book. Gwen and Arthur’s relationship has deepened. Gwen’s also learned more about her magic and I’m enjoying watching her magically abilities steadily increase. I also have high hopes for her potentially getting to pursue her lifelong interest in Archaeology.
We see pretty much the same cast of characters, and I’m enjoying watching those relationships develop as well. So excited for Imogene and Christian’s relationship which seems to be progressing as steadily as Arthur and Gwen’s. Morgana’s Coven appears once again and I’m starting to wonder if that constant antagonism isn’t more rooted in history than we’re realizing – we’re learning more about Arthur and Gwen’s previous lives and I can’t help but wonder about Morgana. I’m excited to see that story arch continue.
The murder mystery itself is like the instrument for all the other pieces I’ve mentioned above. And, as with the other books, it’s solid detective work, combined with some magical assistance. There’s a piece unsolved at the end of the book and I’m curious to see where that goes in future books as well.
And I’m continuing to ADORE the narration. This series is VERY British and the narration is the final piece in the puzzle that transports me across the Atlantic.
