Summary

A decorated knight for Richard the Lionheart and an ally of the House of de Lohr, Sir Garret de Moray was a man described as cold, intimidating, foreboding. A man with eyes as black as night.

Receiving a royal appointment as Captain of the Household Guard, there was no man more qualified or prepared for the role because on the sands of the Holy Land where Garret went on Richard’s great quest, the Christian armies whispered of a knight whose wisdom was ancient. Some wondered if he was the walking dead, an immortal soul who had lived many lifetimes over, because his skill and power exceeded earthly restraints. Kronos, they called him. The father of the gods.

Then came a lady without hope…

Beautiful Lyssia du Bose has lost everything – her father, her home, her family. Taken in by an aunt who was a lady-in-waiting for the Duchess of Wendover, Lyssia finds a quiet existence in the shadows of a great home. A chance meeting with a warrior with eyes as black as night and, suddenly, her perspective on life begins to change. The quiet, sometimes-frightening knight took an interest in her, and she in him. Is it possible that someone should actually want her?

More than she knows. When Lyssia catches the Duke of Wendover’s attention as well, the gentle romance between her and Garret quickly becomes something they must fight to hold on to. When Garret, one of the most powerful knights in King Richard’s stable, is challenged by a married duke who wishes to make Lyssia his mistress, it is a battle that all of London will witness.

Enjoyable but spoiled by an abrupt ending

I really enjoy KLV's medieval stories. She does a wonderful job of world building and is able to create characters that you really care about. However, on this occasion I was left going 'is that it?'.

I won't give any spoilers, but after the villain is beaten, everything is wrapped up in just a few pages. Garrett and Lyssa don't even have a proper conversation, let alone any description of the aftermath of what they'd been through!

A Most Moving Love Story

Truly a most moving, heart rending love story! One to make a reader laugh or cry at intervals! What more can I say? It is a book you have to experience for yourself to understand the depth of emotion it evokes! Congratulations to Kathryn le Veque once again for her ability to encite such emotion through a book, and to Nick Cracknell for bringing it to life so well. Thank both òf you for sharing your gifts through this book! WELL DONE! This review was written after my third time of experiencing the *Shield of Kronos*!

Really Enjoyed This Book 4.5 Stars

I am never disappointed with KLV's books and I am always looking for more. The way she tells a story just holds your attention. Even if there is a lull in the story, just hold on, it will get better. I like the two main characters, Garret and Lyssia and the way they were drawn to each other. I even like the character of the villian, and you must have a villian. This is my first time listening to Nick Cracknell and he does a nice job. Now I am looking for my next KLV book.

Another wonderful read

Kathryn Le Veque has done a fabulous job with this new book. Each time I read one of her books I’m looking forward to the next one. I absolutely love when it along story because sometimes I’m disappointed that it’s over.
I see a lot of her new books one amazon but I can’t get them because I need audible books.

Different

After listening to the preview, the storyline wasn’t what I expected, but it wasn’t bad. If you are into medieval times then this book is for you. The narrator’s voice was perfect for this book, he did a good job with bringing to life the characters from this time period. It was worth the credit because it was different and interesting.

Shield of Kronos.

I read this book shortly after it came out and though I remembered most of the storyline, the audio book turned out to be such an absolute treat. This book is one of my favorites by this wonderful author. Beautifully romantic but with enough action, suspense and drama, this story will satisfy all your needs. Very well written! As for the narration by Nick Cracknell - awesome! Highly recommended. 5 stars.

Another great performance.

Love this narrator. Did such a great job.
More than the usual amount of politics machinations for a leveque novel, which aren’t my favorite but tie up nicely in the end. Fast paced, Kronos was a great nickname, and Zion is a great addition to the story.
