Who was your favorite character to write in Lord of Druemarwin?
I knew Naed very well as he was a major character in book 1, THE PRINCE OF VALFEYRIDGE, and I’ve always loved him. But I have to say Raell’s scenes were the most fun. She’s a dynamic, always going forward character, full of passion and impulses. Where his heart and head are in constant conflict, she’s all heart-driven.

Did I lose a lot of sleep reading this book? I absolutely did! And I don’t regret it for a second. Lord of Druemarwin is full of action, love, and secrets, and I couldn’t help but keep my eyes glued to the book, turning page after page well into the night.
I absolutely loved all the characters, though Toth quickly became my favorite, a hot-headed Tolemak with a good head on his shoulders. One of my favorite scenes of his was when he and Naed got in a fist fight. The whole fight and the interaction afterward had me busting a gut!
Lord of Druemarwin has a stunning, eye-catching cover, with flowing words and incredible details that captivated me from beginning to end. I could highlight the entire book with my favorite parts. This was well-written, with fleshed-out and likeable characters. I didn’t want the story to end.
My rating: 5 stars
