Publisher's Book Description

“During a time when legends were born . . .


The feisty enemy princess, the cunning knight holding her captive, and the ultimate battle that will determine their fate.

Hoping to minimize the death and destruction of the coming war, Princess Birgitta of Swaine leads the Dark Warriors as part of her brother King Canute’s efforts to take the throne of Norvegia. As she engages in a skirmish with a band of elite Knights of Brethren, she’s kidnapped by Kristoffer Prestegard, a cunning warrior.

While searching for the holy lamp that can help defeat the Dark Warriors, Kristoffer realizes that Swaine has already seized the ancient relic. Since King Canute is fiercely protective of his sister, Kristoffer offers to return Princess Birgitta in exchange for the coveted holy lamp.

While trying to keep his feisty prisoner from escaping, Kristoffer learns that his father and uncle have set in motion a scheme that would give him the kingship of Norvegia. Where will Kristoffer’s loyalties lie, and how will he choose sides without losing everything, including the princess he’s grown to love?”

My Review

Entrusted, by Jody Hedlund, is the sixth and final book in the Knights of Brethren series. Like the other books in the series, this novel is brimming with plenty of adventure and romance. Fantasy elements including legends, knights, maidens, and lore make this book altogether thrilling. Captivating characters, stunning settings, and enduring themes also make this story moving and memorable. From beginning to end, this novel is well-written, creatively-detailed, and thoroughly entertaining.

Chapter by chapter, this novel alternates between the perspectives of the two main characters and grows increasingly engrossing. As the story develops, the characters encounter surprising enemies, deadly perils, and heart-rending choices that compel them to embrace that which is courageous and honorable. Even when faced with significant doubts, selflessness and integrity embolden the characters to follow a course that will have significant ramifications for themselves and for those whom they love.

A talented writer of young-adult fiction, Ms. Hedlund has crafted yet another novel that readers of all ages are sure to enjoy. Entrusted is both gripping and remarkable as it offers a satisfying, engaging conclusion to a wonderful series. It is truly a special novel, and I recommend it wholeheartedly.
