Marcus Annan, a tourneyer famed for his prowess on the battlefield, thought he could keep the secrets of his past buried forever. But when a mysterious crippled monk demands Annan help him find justice for the transgressions of sixteen years ago, Annan is forced to leave the tourneys and join the Third Crusade.
Wounded in battle and hunted by enemies on every side, he rescues an English noblewoman from an infidel prison camp and flees to Constantinople. But, try as he might, he cannot elude the past. Amidst the pain and grief of a war he doesn’t even believe in, he is forced at last to face long-hidden secrets and sins and to bare his soul to the mercy of a God he thought he had abandoned years ago.
I’m sure Behold the Dawn by K.M. Weiland is a well-written book, but it held no interest for me. The blurb sounded interesting, but the reality was that it failed to capture my interest from the beginning. I do not like giving bad reviews, so I forced myself to read the first six chapters, but, for me, the book was getting less interesting, instead of better.
I’m going to say it was just the story matter that I could not get into. This book may be a wonderful read for those who like battle scenes, it was just not for me.
I received a PDF copy of this book from Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review.
