Young Adult Romantic Suspense Date Published: September 2015 Publisher: D&D Universe, llc
What happens when a Computer Geek challenges a Medieval Outlaw? PETIR TAKES A ROUGH TUMBLE IN THE CONNECTICUT WOODS, and awakens in the middle of old England. His instinct to freak out is tempered by the arrival of a fair maiden wearing a bow… and arrow. In his college world, fair maiden types don’t ordinarily go for computer geek types, but for some reason he is no longer in his world. Petir is fairly certain he can try whatever he wants without consequence. WITH THE CONFLICT BETWEEN THE ROYALS ESCALATING, MAID RIANNE has joined the outlaws hiding in the woods, outwardly defying the handsome and accomplished knight to whom she is promised. She is fairly certain she is simply flattered by Lord Petir’s uncensored admiration of her skills with the staff and bow, the same unmaidenly pursuits disdained by her knight. But, that does not explain her reaction to Lord Petir’s unguarded gaze. TO PETIR’S DELIGHT, AND MAID RIANNE’S DISMAY, the outlaws invite him to join their merry band. What better way to get close to her? Throwing caution to the wind, Petir decides he has nothing to lose by pursuing Maid Rianne, until she is captured by the enemy. Now, a geek with no ability to defend himself must find a way to rescue the fair maiden.
I really liked the character of Petir, even though they way he talked about Rianne at times just drove me really crazy. I really enjoyed Rianne as well, I loved that she didn't let anybody tell her what she could or couldn't do. I thought the beginning was pretty bored, the middle had plenty of action, and the ending was definitely interesting. I thought the ending explained how Petir ended up were he did nicely. I loved what Petir's name really meant. I gave it only 4 out of 5 stars, just because while I thought everything at the end was explained pretty nicely, I just felted like something was missing. I just can't figure out what exactly that was. I think maybe I just wanted more excitement for the ending of the story. I really loved the characters and the Robin hood ties in the book. I would definitely recommend this book, I would warn you that parts of the book were pretty boring at times. But the plot I thought was pretty interesting and fun.
