FANTASY REVIEW: Moorehawke Trilogy 3: The Rebel Prince - Celine Kiernan

Release Date: 07/10/10


Wynter is at last reunited with the exiled Prince Alberon, as he plots insurgency from his forest encampment. But she is losing faith with her companions, as they attempt to drive Alberon's plans in different directions. Caught between Razi's complex diplomacy, Alberon's desire for martial strength and Christopher's fierce personal loyalty, Wynter finds herself torn. Can she combine these philosophies, and find a way to heal the rift between king and heir? Or will each side destroy the other, causing Wynter to lose everything she holds dear? She fears the answers lie veiled in conflict and loss.


The third part in Celine’s Moorehawke Trilogy and one that will leave the reader in not doubt that she plays for keeps as everything is to play for with some pretty good twists. Back that up with some seriously good dialogue, the pace is working well and to be honest it was a title that we really enjoyed. Add a number of great characters, some solid world building and finish it off with a descriptive style that doesn’t waste words and the reader will be more than satisfied.

Finally with an author who has learned so much over the course of a series, Celine has set herself up well for a future in the genre. I look forward to seeing what she comes up with and wish her every success.
