Read full description of the books:
Of the first three books in this series, so far this one is the best written. I liked the story of the first book a little better in general, but having more maturity in the writing and less of the campy childishness of the first two books really made a difference in how much I enjoyed this one. This book had more of a sense of adventure to it than the second book did, also.
It's still predictable. There finally was a small element of mystery that wasn't blurted out and fully explained by one character or another, which was a nice change, but for everything else, I never felt the need to be concerned.
Some of the conflict goes back to that childishness that made the first two books feel clunky. There are characters who otherwise seem to be rational, logical people, but then they get into situations in which they immediately go for the worst case scenario without thinking it through first. They act pouty, like children who hadn't gotten their way.
Not bad, overall. I'd like to see Radford mature her writing enough that her villains stop feeling so cliche, but she's made some improvements over the course of these three books, which is good.

Read information about the authorA pseudonym used by C.F. Bentley. Also known as P.R. Frost.
Irene has been writing stories ever since she figured out what a pencil was for. Combining a love for Medieval history and a fascination with paranormal, Irene concentrated on fantasy writing.
In her spare time, Irene enjoys lacemaking and is a long time member of an international guild. Check out THE LONELIEST MAGICIAN, The Dragon Nimbus #3 for an exploration of her favorite obsession. A piece of magic lace is the obvious patch for a dragon wing. She has published numerous magazine articles about the history and technique of lacemaking as well as self publishing two lacemaker's fairy tales with lace patterns that can be made up to illustrate the stories. When she isn't writing or making lace she enjoys exploring the back roads and many museums of the Pacific Northwest.
For many years Irene was active in Ballet du Lac, a semi-pro ballet company. She taught ballet to youngsters in her local community school program. At the same time she led a Cub Scout pack and frequently found her home the preferred playground in the neighborhood for many more children than she thought possible.
Irene has held many full and part time jobs from Insurance underwriter to assistant curator of a museum to clerk in a fabric store. Writing is now her “day job.”
Two years ago, Irene took up fencing as research for GUARDIAN OF THE FREEDOM, Merlin’s Descendants #5. She figured one quarter would give her some vocabulary and a feel for a weapon in her hand. But that wasn’t enough to write realistic battles on the Ottoman frontier or convincing duels. So she signed up for another quarter. And another. Now she’s addicted and needs to add fencing to more of her books and let her subjects range further afield.
A native Oregonian living in Oregon, Irene is a member of an endangered species. As a service brat, she lived in a number of cities throughout the country until returning to Oregon in time to graduate from Tigard High School. She earned a B.A. in history from Lewis and Clark College, where she met her husband, Tim. Historical research has remained a lifelong passion and finally became a part of her job with the historical fantasy series Merlin’s Descendants.
Irene and her husband currently make their home in Welches, Oregon where they share their back yard with deer, coyotes, bear (check the pictures), raccoons and too many bird species to mention.
