Review of ‘The Sword of the Maiden’

Posted on Updated on

Separated from Nicolas de Breton during the battle to save Mont Saint Michel from the English in 1424, Katelyn Michaels was sent back to her 21st century life as a high school student. Torn between her love for Nicolas in the past and her family in the present, she is depressed, but begins to experience a sequence of events that seem to be preparing her for another mission as a Watchman.

The mission, she soon learns, is to deliver a sword to the Maiden, the young girl who is destined to defeat the English and save the French nation. But, in order to do so, she must survive the efforts of the fallen angel, Abdon, to kill her.

The Sword of the Maiden by Kathleen Perrin is the second book in the Watchmen series. It skillfully melds historical fact with magic and fantasy as the reader is taken on a fantastic journey through the past. The characters, real and imagined, come alive on the pages, and the drama and action is nonstop. The author has created an amalgam of real and make-believe that is totally believable.

I give it five stars.
