Review: The Lord of Ireland

The Lord of Ireland (The Fifth Knight, #3)The Lord of Ireland by E.M. Powell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Another intriguing tale set in the time of the Lordship of Ireland as held by John, the youngest son of King Henry of England.

Our eponymous hero and his wife find themselves once more providing a service to the King, entrusted with the task of uncovering the mischief and mayhem that is expected to be encountered during the planned voyage to and (re)conquest of Ireland. Unfortunately, the expected mischief and mayhem come from the most unexpected of sources.

Drawn into the intrigue, our heroes face hardship, mistrust and possible death, and yet through the application of wiles and intestinal fortitude manage to triumph in the end, and prevent the mischief and mayhem from rising to the most obscene of levels.

Our author once again weaves a wonderfully engaging narrative in and through the historical setting, providing the reader with an engaging tale.

Very much recommended.
