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?
Yes! This book was just a wonderful conclusion to an amazing series. I have so loved this series and I am so sad to see it end. I am crossing my fingers for a companion series. Entrusted is the sixth and final book in Jody Hedlund’s Knights of Brethren Series. And boy was it worth the wait.
I loved Birgitta. She was an amazing character. She was so strong and stubborn. Birgitta was a princess and raised by her brother. She was fearless and loved her people. Birgitta was unafraid to fight for what she believed in. It was sweet to see this strong woman fall for Kristoffer and learn that she doesn’t always have to be strong. Kristoffer helped Birgitta be herself and didn’t fault her for being different. But Birgitta would have to figure out what she was willing to risk to get the fighting to stop.
Kristoffer was also a great character. It was fun to get to know Kristoffer more. He seemed like such a focused series character, it was cool to get to see a different side of him. Kristoffer was loyal to a fault and he was doing his best to serve his king. He strived to prove himself worthy not only to his king, but also to his father. Kristoffer had to figure out if he was willing to defy his father in order to fight for the greater good.
Kristoffer and Birgitta were a cute couple. They connected with each other right away. It was fun to see them interacting, they had such good banter. They were more of enemies to lovers but they fell quickly. I don’t usually like insta love but I feel as if it fits the book and pace. Kristoffer and Birgitta helped each other be better people and they understood each other.
Entrusted is a wonderful book and I would definitely recommend it! I would recommend this whole series. It does need to be read in order though because the books follow each other. Entrusted was engaging and the characters were wonderful. It was so exciting to see the series come to an end! Entrusted is a clean historical romance.
