  • A Job Well Done

    This story strikes the heart how cruel man can be. Then, when one thinks there is no redemption, a flower blooms. Even as people are snatched away and sent into indentured service under the cruelest of conditions, love emerges. A strong bond is forged that no matter what, it will never be broken. I enjoy 17th century stories and this one covers all on my wish list for a reading. It is well researched; the characters are real, and some of them were real personages who had existed during this time frame. This is a story that will grab you and keep you locked into it until the very end.

  • Hauntingly beautiful. An unforgettable page-turner

    Severed Knot is a haunting love story between two souls destined to be together and fighting to survive. Emerging from Ireland’s ravaged countryside and the aftermath of bloody civil war, Mairead and Iain walked into this novel with a spirit and charisma that captured my heart from the moment I met them. Following their journey through fearful capture, terrible conditions and life-threatening slavery, I could not stop thinking about them as I was reading this novel, and they have stayed with me long after they found their destiny. Covering a little known period of history, the forced slavery of thousands of Irish and Scottish people into the West Indies sugar plantations, Ms Bazos’s triumphant new novel weaves exquisite prose, in-depth research and masterful characters into a blockbuster of a historical biographical romance. The setting and the theme of enforced labor under dreadful conditions is heartbreaking at times, and Ms Bazos handles the reality of Mairead’s and Iain’s lives with great empathy and sensitivity. This is literary fiction in its powerful writing, biographical as well as romantic, a compelling story of passion and survival. Ms Bazos’s first novel, Traitor’s Knot, is outstanding, and Severed Knot, the second in her series (which can also be read as a standalone), is equally if not more enjoyable. An unputdownable unforgettable page-turner. Five glorious stars.

  • Severed Knot

    Severed Knot is the exciting second release by Cryssa Bazos. I loved her debut Traitor's Knot, and i loved this one even more! She has great talent and I believe she has herself a writing career for years to come. In Severed Knot, the historical details made me feel as though I was right there witnessing the story. I adored this fabulous tale with Iain and Mairead. I highly recommend it. It is getting five plus stars from me. This is one of those books that should not be overlooked for 2019. Well done, Cryssa, well done! I received this book from the author, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

  • Really enjoyed!

    I really didn't realize that Scottish and Irish Christians were indentured to plantations in the West Indies in the 17th century. It becomes clear that the author did a lot of research for this book as the detail of the day-to-day lives of the Scottish hero and Irish heroine make you feel as though you are there. It was disturbing at times to read of the entitlement of some, while they abuse and mistreat others that had no control over their circumstances. I was captivated by the building romance between Iain and Mairead, and with their resilient spirit that kept them going through many trials and tragedies.
