I found this installment to be somewhat unbelievable. Lady Leona was supposed to have learned her fighting skills from her brother Ward. However from the age of 8, after nearly dying from multiple bee stings, she did not reside with him. She lived with her uncle and aunt who saved her life. Anyway how did a Lady in the 12th century become so adept? Also she wanted to buy special shoes for the cooks daughter to straighten her crooked legs. Really?. In the 12th century? The actual story tried to cram too much in and was all over the place. This wasn't terrible and I want to read the next book to see if it gets back on track.
