The Knight - Kate Sherwood 3 1/2 - 4 Hearts

Review written for MM Good Book Reviews

This book is part of a series and must be read in order. Adam has taken up his position as the leader of the North American council after the revolution. Remy is trying to find his place in the new order now that he is no longer a sex slave. Adam is weighed down by the responsibility and seeks comfort from Remy’s presence, but Remy needs to find his own place and sets out to find it, Adam lets him go but Remy returns when there is an assassination attempt on Adam’s life. Remy knows what he wants from Adam, but Adam can’t seem to see past Remy’s past, and Adam needs Remy but believes Remy needs to find the person beneath the slave. As the two face danger, political intrigue and a colony coop they have to find their way back to each other and accept their love.

This story continues from just after [b:The Pawn|17309932|The Pawn (Against the Odds, #1)|Kate Sherwood||23970427] and continues with the storyline of the revolution and the after effects of struggling to keep a continent under control without falling back into the old ways. Adam faces difficult decisions as he tries to balance a new council and keep them working together, while dealing with his yearning for Remy who seems to be more distant. Both Adam and Remy are as we remember them from [b:The Pawn|17309932|The Pawn (Against the Odds, #1)|Kate Sherwood||23970427], but this time we see everything from Adam’s perspective and we follow along as he deals with political situations and betrayal, while struggling with his feelings for Remy and the appearance of his wife and daughter.

This story will draw you in as the plot twists and thickens, the relationship between Remy and Adam is still uncertain and only gets solved near the end of the book. It is interesting to watch the play between Adam and Remy and I really liked it when Remy finally confronted Adam’s treatment of him, telling him the way things are and how they should be. Although their relationship is again played out in the background it still has impact and the result is brilliant. Both Adam and Remy face a lot as they manoeuver through the political quagmire that the revolution left behind, they also have the colony planets wanting their freedom and someone wants them dead. For those of you who wonder there is no cheating and not that much sex, Adam’s wife and he have been separated for over ten years and Dar (Remy’s childhood friend) is quite prominent in this story.

I will recommend this to those who love post revolution, political unrest, struggling relationships, assassination attempts, danger, nation unrest, smooth talking and a meeting of minds that leads to hot sex and a brilliant ending.
