Marcher Lod Press Store:

Just finished reading this book. I wasn't quite sure where this book might go with the story. The Marcher Lord Press site listed this as a fantasy. The main characters will build a lot of sympathy with readers as the story progresses. It's amazing how problem after problem centers Cham and Vrell in its sights, yet the pair never give up hope completely. For the first few chapters most of the story occurs in the same spot. The story seemed to build slowly but, like the characters themselves, the readers needed to know where the characters had been before learning where they were going. Battle scenes seemed believable. Author Jill Williamson did her research and it showed in the many small details of life in the Middle Ages. When a book keeps me returning, and staying up late, it's a good read. By Darkness Hid is a very good read. I look forward to the sequel.
