  1. Robb provides plenty of Welsh history Owen explores his roots as he makes a pilgrimage to Wales ultimately causing quite a stirRobb shines in her well developed characterization You sense the anguish and concern as characters are challenged by loyalty Robb penetrates her casts thoughts and feelings raw emotions giving dimensionality as they question inner turmoil I liked the tension in the relationship of Owen and Lucie made this than a mystery especially with the familiarity of the characters with each installment The plot is a maze of dramatic twists roadblocks unearthed at every turn intrigue keeping your interest The plot merges with sub plots involving the main characters in the end it falls together wonderfully Robb's endings always tease just enough to make way for the next in this well crafted seriesVisit Raven Haired Girl for reviews giveaways
