Tale of the Clans: Book Two
Rise of Betrayal is phenomenal for its suspense, success in rendering events and characters true to the history of Viking-era Ireland, exploration of living faith in Jesus Christ and crises of faith, and romantic appeal. Its settings – the Irish wilds, rivers, farms, and royal compounds – intrigued me and felt real.
M.N. Stroh’s style is contemporary, readable, but somehow old world. Sometimes she does things I don’t like, such as, the popular construction of verbs from nouns. However, ’tis a wee transgression for this competent lass and adds to the unique feeling of her at times beautiful prose. I recommend this novel.
