  • Fabulous, Exciting, Romantic - Great Read

    Goodness Gracious Me! I have been waiting for Drake’s book through two whole series and I am so very glad it is finally here and that he has such an awesome wrap-up for the series. With the buildup of so much anticipation, an author can only hit a grand-slam-home-run or strike-out, nothing in between the two. I can happily say this is a grand-slam-home-run and I am so glad to have read it. Having said all of that, if you have not read any of the previous books, you can read this as a stand-alone and not miss a beat. But, if you read the other books first, your experience will be so much more colorful and rich. At long last, Drake has the opportunity to become a knight. King David has given him a two-fold assignment and upon the successful completion of the main part of that mission, the king will bestow a knighthood on Drake. That is the one thing Drake has sought after and worked for his entire life. Drake is absolutely the noblest of men – nobody is more honorable, more moral, or more upstanding than Drake. His morality has cost him jobs and friends over the years, but his moral compass hasn’t ever wavered. Even though he isn’t officially a knight, he has been assigned a squire, Beathan (Bean) MacKenzie. Bean is every bit as moral and strait-laced as Drake, so they get along famously. Bean only knows the ‘public’ part of Drake’s mission – to travel to Lochmaben Castle and train the new recruits the king has sent to the castle as reinforcements. The secret part, discovering the cause of death of Lady Eileen, is known only to Drake. Greer MacPherson is in a total panic because her very young brother (about twelve) has been locked in the dungeon at Lochmaben Castle – and it has been a month now. She isn’t allowed to see him and he is under heavy guard. What could a poor, innocent, young boy have done to receive such punishment? Greer is afraid she knows the answer – Mac (her brother) surely saw what happened with the dead woman from the castle and somebody is trying to keep him quiet. Or, are they blaming him? Greer has walked all the way from Lochmaben Castle to Dunfermline Castle to try to speak with the king on behalf of her brother, but she wasn’t even allowed entry. Now, she must find fifty quid in order to bribe a guard at Lochmaben Castle. That is what he told her it would cost her to ‘rescue’ her brother. She’s is a laundress, where is she going to get that kind of money. Well, her plan is simple – she’ll steal it on her way back to Lochmaben. She’s an excellent thief, surely, she can pick enough pockets along the way home to raise the money. Of course, Drake and Greer encounter each other under less than desirable circumstances. Drake wants to help Greer and Greer sees Drake as a mark. Greer thinks they are as different as two people could possibly be, but Drake knows they are more alike than different. When things go horribly awry at Lochmaben, will Drake be able to give up his lifelong dream to save Greer and Mac? Even if he is willing, can he actually do it? This was a beautifully written, fast-paced, breath-holding, sigh-worthy read and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did. It has an Epilogue that perfectly wraps up the series, ties up all of the loose ends, and catches us up with all of Drake’s family on the Isle of Skye. This book was everything I could have hoped Drake’s book would be. Kudos to the author. I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

  • Borderland Rebels,

    I loved this series of borderland battles, Drake’s sisters, and of Drake becoming a knight and achieving his dream. Not sure I could have lived in those times, but felt completely immersed in the times. Thank you Madeline Martin.

  • Splendid, Thrilling and Romantic!!!

    Madeline Martin is hands-down, one of my favorite authors be it through one of her medieval stories or her WWII novel, “The Last Bookshop In London”. “ Drake's Honor”, book 4 is the perfect conclusion to the Borderland Rebels Series. Drake Fletcher is the perfect example of the chivalrous, noble and honorable knight who is a man of strength, compassion and understanding. And yet he is not yet knighted though it’s been his life’s goal, his dream and now it’s within his grasp. Summoned by the king to go undercover in the pretense of training the new warriors of the Lord at Lochmaben Castle to investigate the suspicious death of Lady Eileen Androll. In completing his mission he hopes to earn his knighthood. The King has of course provided him a trusted sidekick, Beathan aka Bean, his squire. With knighthood within his grasp he sets out on his mission and then he sees the beautiful auburn haired Greer being accosted and he has to save her. Greer MacPherson is a young woman whom fate has not dealt a kind hand. She is strong, determined and resourceful when need be. She makes an honest living taking in laundry to take care of herself and her young brother of 12 years, Mac who has been taken prisoner by the Earl of Calver. She tried to have him freed and one of his guards told her for 50 marks he’d release him to her. Of course this was impossible considering how little she earns. When she failed in her efforts to speak to the King about it she sets out to get the money the only way she knew how, by stealing it. Having failed in her efforts and being accosted for trying she is saved by Drake but she’s determined to get the 50 marks so she agrees to travel with him. Having never found a reason to trust a man Greer is reticent to trust Drake but can’t help being drawn to him. The characters are so well written and defined they come off the pages and pull you into this emotional ride that keeps you involved until the very end. The author has masterfully woven a story where the chemistry sparks and love conquers even the most scarred of hearts. She’s so articulate and the dialogue and interactions between characters is just wonderful. Her imagery is vivid and paints a brilliant picture in your imagination. I just fell in love with Drake, this sigh worthy hero and like him I could see and understand the desperation that drove Greer. This is such an amazing, action packed story, so beautifully written and wonderfully told that at times it takes your breath away. Thank you Ms. Martin, you have a lovely way of transporting the reader to another place and time.

    Thanks for your feedback!
