#BookReview: To Crown A King by Raedene Jeannette Melin

Synopsis: Scotland, 1295. The kingdom is on the verge of rebellion. John Balliol wears the crown, but even his powerful Comyn kin cannot break King Edward of England’s insatiable desire to conquer the northern realm.

For Christina Bruce, neither man is worthy of being called King of Scots. Born into the influential Bruce family, the only noble house to rival the Comyns, she is expected to obey her father and side with England. But when a chance meeting with an outlaw named William Wallace brings her into the conflict, she risks everything to get what she wants most – freedom.

From award-winning author Raedene Jeannette Melin, To Crown A King is the empowering tale of Christina Bruce and her struggle between family loyalty and Scottish freedom. Discover her untold story and follow along as she takes her destined place in history.


Rating: ★★
My Review: I love historical fiction and although I know that this is fiction I still expect the historical parts to be believable.  This one however just didn't follow along with that aspect of historical at least not with what I have devoured in the past.  This book as very VERY fast paced.  Within 3% of the title the MC was sent to collect the rents and killed someone that attacked her and then that person ended up being a spy.  It was just way way over the top within the first few pages.  I wished that the story would have taken the time for me to get to know the characters and then the story itself.
