Summary

Haroun became infamous throughout 12th century Europe for his skill at combat, only rivaled by his notoriety as the land's favorite killer-for-hire. Haroun's actions have gained him everything he's ever desired. But after years of killing without question, he begins to follow his conscience after meeting Gabriella. Gabriella of Mordo, daughter to a powerful ruler, was to be married to a stranger, but has shunned the life of a lady, instead studying warfare and combat with the goal to fight in the Crusades. After fleeing her father's castle to secretly join the fight against the Moors, Gabriella meets Haroun, and are soon caught up in dangerous intrigue. Forced together to survive, they discover a kinship of spirit and a surprising, intense desire. Can love thrive when loyalties are divided?

Not what I thought. Romantic drivel. Not an historical novel.

Schmitz. Very poor characterisations too. Plot weak at best. Very disappointed. I thought it was going to be a novel set in crusades with historical accuracy and a plot line those PaulDoherty writes

Assassin story

Where does The Moor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Best audiobook by far when it comes to a thriller.

Any additional comments?

I wish this story was a little bit longer. I read the book as well but I wanted to reread it again but was too lazy. Thankfully I just downloaded this as an audio version and it turned out great. I love the suspense and Crusader trilogy series!

I enjoyed this book

If you could sum up The Moor in three words, what would they be?

Awesome book

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes i listen in one sitting. The characters are complex and the book keeps you tensed through the whole story.

Any additional comments?

The descriptions really brought it to life for me. I realize now that life was really tough for people. There was much more violence and starvation than I imagined. I am really looking forward to listening the second book in the series.

Unexpected Turn of Events.

How wonderful.. I really think this is my favorite of the series.. Okay so I say that after finishing every story. But hey that's what happens. Each one becomes my favorite ,hope they do for you too. This being a first book reminds the reader to overlook the minor flaws in the style because the tension Reina builds is up to the strength of her proposed story.

Couldn't really rate story - reader too annoying

The reader just didn't go with the story. I would have preferred a reader with a British accent. The American accent was just GRATING. I'll try reading the story instead.
