Book Review – The Bear’s Heart by Fil Reid

Warning: May contain spoilers, but opening comments are spoiler-free. Check out my Reading Ranting page for more.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Review Disclaimer: I received a prerelease copy of the book. This review honestly expresses my thoughts after having read it.
This is Fil’s second book in the Guinevere series which follows a librarian who gets sucked through a magical portal to the time of Arthur and Merlin.

Now Guinevere has to face the decision she made to stay with Arthur and what that life means.

What I liked…

The historical elements are interesting from both a world-building and educational perspective.
I love how Guin uses her knowledge of the future and basic sanitation to help herself and others in this time.
It plays on both history and legends to create an amazing setting and fantastic characters.

What I didn’t like…

Guin discovered something toward the beginning of the book and jumped to a particular thought about it that seemed unfounded at first. I don’t know how to explain it without spoiling it, but I think she jumped to a harsh conclusion too quickly for my liking with little emotion behind it. I would have liked more thought before she fell on that idea.

Final thoughts…

This is a great book for those who love historical romances, since those are the main genres. The fantasy element is very limited which I don’t mind in this sense.
