With the Broken Sword, the author takes you back to a time of legendary heroes adding her own incredible romances, breathing life into the world of King Arthur in a new way. The passion is exquisite, the story mesmerizing and the romance breathtaking. With each page I felt like I had been transported into their world. I describe this book as historical romance because of the theme, but I'm not sure that fully encompasses the true genre of the reading. I would most definitely suggest this book to my friends. I look forward to revisiting the world of Arthur through the authors eyes again and again.
