  • Lovely Romance, Beautifully Written

    Pearl Beyond Price is book two in The Unicorn Trilogy by Claire Delacroix. It is a reissue and revised medieval romance that was first published in the 90’s. Having not read the first version I can’t say how much revision has been done or how much the story has been expanded. I can say that I did enjoy this version especially the setting and culturally aspect as seen by Kira. Thierry de Pereille may be the terrifying warrior, Black Wind but he is a better man than most. Kira finds that out over time. Kira in her kind gentle way just as intimidating to Thierry. I appreciated how the relationship and plot progressed as these two got to know each other even though there was a language barrier. It is a richer emotional story because it. A memorable read. This story takes place many years after the first book but involves a character introduce in that book, The Unicorn Bride. It is not necessary to have read that book but I did find this fact interesting. 4.5 Stars An ARC of the book was given to me by the publisher/author which I voluntarily chose to read and reviewed. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

  • Loved it!

    Pearl Beyond Price is the second book in the Unicorn Trilogy, by Claire Delacroix. This book has been updated by the author, and she has stated that she has made significant changes, especially in the final chapters of the book, so if you have read this book previously you may want to give it another go to see what you think. At the end of Unicorn Bride, the hero and heroine were headed to the far east with their newborn son, Thierry, and Pearl Beyond Price picks up there about 20 years later. Thierry has had a falling out with his parents, has joined the Mongols and has been trying to prove his ability to lead, so that he can fulfil what he sees as his destiny as a descendant of Genghis Khan. It isn't long before he meets Kira, a pearl merchant's daughter, whom he at first believes is a witch…and maybe she is because it isn't long before he is falling under her spell, despite the fact that neither can communicate verbally with the other in the beginning. If you're looking for a typical medieval romance which takes place in a castle with loads of knights, you may be disappointed, but I found the more unusual setting where the first half of the story took place, to be refreshing. Thierry and Kira's story was charming, and at times amusing (especially with the communication difficulties, and ensuing misunderstandings), with a little action thrown in for good measure. I wish that I had read the previous version so that I could compare the endings, but I have to say I really enjoyed this version, I think it would be hard beat. I highly recommend this book, and intend to read more from the author myself.

  • HEA is unexpected but totally satisfying

    Kira is terrified of Thierry, a huge Mongol warrior who enters her father’s market to have some pearls appraised, and her trepidation only increases when he accuses her of stealing one of his pearls. When she inadvertently swallows it, he is doomed to keep her close at hand until the pearl "reveals itself” in a couple of days. This proves to be his undoing, as he quickly begins to succumb to her charms. As for Kira, despite her initial fear, she soon realizes that Thierry is a man of honor, kindness, and sympathy, unlike her cruel and violent father. Though Thierry’s path ultimately diverges significantly from his original life plan, the requisite HEA is unexpected but totally satisfying. Ms. Delacroix, as always, writes in prose that seem appropriate for the historical period she is writing about, never jarring you out of the story by an inadvertent modern phrase. I highly recommend this book. Copy gifted by the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
