Book Review – Kari’s Reckoning – The Rose Shield Book 4

I woke up this morning to the promise of snow, a day of blogging, and a wonderful review . Jessica finished my Rose Shield series and posted a review of the final book. I’m thrilled and honored that she took the time to read the whole series and share her thoughts. If the power stays on, it’s going to be a perfect day. Thanks, Jess ❤

Kari’s Reckoning – The Rose Shield Book IV – D. Wallace Peach

Kari's Reckoning (The Rose Shield Book 4) by [Peach, D. Wallace]This – the fourth book and conclusion to the Rose Shield series – delivers action, intrigue, emotional sucker-punches, surprises, and a solid satisfying ending to a wonderful adventure series that has largely followed protagonist Catling and her struggles in a world of politics and influence.

In this installment, Peach really brings home the themes of power, morality and free-will that she’s toyed with throughout the series, and not a single character comes through the battlefield of the series without scars – be they physical or emotional… or both.

    • We got about 1/4 cm. Ha ha. It didn’t stick, Annika, but more expected today through Wednesday. Yes, I had fun yesterday. I know that everyone is well aware of this series by now, but it was great to share the review and Jess’s kindness for reading and posting. I hope winter wanders your way – beautiful, fresh, and safely. 🙂 ❤

        Thank you, Diane – and yes! There is always so much splashed around about how thoughtless and aggressive authors can be – like you, I’ve been blessed to find the community largely welcoming and very generous with advice and encouragement. I hope your writing also continues to go well!

    • Thanks, Mary. My brother just finished the series too, and he was asking me about characters and places that I didn’t remember. Oops! Ha ha. Getting old, I think. I’m editing like a mad woman, and it feels good! Happy Writing. 😀

    “If you haven’t yet looked into The Rose Shield series, I strongly urge you to get out there and get yourself a copy. This is intellectual fantasy at its best.”

    Looking forward to reading it.
