I was so thrilled to once again be on Roseanna's launch team. This entire series has been an absolute delight! She sent me her book for being part of her launch team and to help facilitate this review.



After a summer of successful pirate-treasure hunting, Lady Emily Scofield and her friends must hide the unprecedented discoveries they've made, thanks to the betrayal of her own family. Horrified by her brother, who will stop at nothing to prove himself to their greedy father, Emily is forced to take a stand against her family--even if it means being cut off entirely.

Bram Sinclair, Earl of Telford, is fascinated with tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table--an interest he's kept mostly hidden for the last decade. But when a diary is unearthed on the islands that could lead to a secret artifact, Bram is the only one able to piece the legends together.

As Bram and Emily seek out the whereabouts of the hidden artifact, they must dodge her family and a team of archaeologists. In a race against time, it is up to them to decide what makes a hero worthy of legend. Is it fighting valiantly to claim the treasure . . . or sacrificing everything in the name of selfless love?

My Review:

I'll be honest here... I was really sad to end this series. This merry band of friends really endeared themselves to me. They each had their quirks and admirable traits, which when blended together makes the reader want to be one of them!

I enjoyed getting to know Emily better in Worth of Legend. Unfortunately, in the previous story we learn that her father and bother aren't the greatest of people and let me just say, they continue on in this story as well. If you like when authors create characters you love to hate, you'll definitely feel that way about those two.

BUT what I loved was that the author did an EXCELLENT job of, through Emily, showing us how God would want us to love, to show mercy, to reflect Him to those who are hardest of heart.

Then there's Bram. Not an easy-to-like fellow in the previous book, but I liked him much better this go round! How can one not like a man who loves all things King Arthur? He certainly takes some cues from the knights when it comes to chivalry! It was wonderful watching him grow in faith through this story as they hunt for a treasure.

There's also a side story of Tommie (Emily's maid) and Enyon. What Tommie has dealt with at the hands of Nigel may be hard for some readers. We're never given details, we just know inherently what transpired.

The way the author uses the men in Emily and Tommie's lives is a beautiful reminder of the fact that we're all loved by God and created in His image. Others may treat us poorly, but that doesn't have to define us. There were just so many good lessons throughout this story.

Once again, one of my favorite characters is Mamm-wynn! I could've easily used more of her in this story. The sage characters tend to be some of my favorites.

I'm going to miss this band of merry friends, but I'll happily revisit the Scillies!
