    2. Read because every so often I'll think, "I wonder what the kids are reading these days." In this case, the answer is: Clean Christian medieval romance novels that aren't very clean, aren't very Christian, and only selectively medieval.*So something has been annoying me about this book and I MUST SPEAK. There’s seriously some kind of anti-textile bias going on here. The heroine is a modern-style warrior chick, so pretty soon she collides with typical (and totally reasonable) medieval attitudes [...]

    3. Once in a while I just pick something to read that I know I own, but hadn't really thought about reading anytime soon. Sometimes I regret my decisiond sometimes not! Sometimes, I am just pleasantly surprised, and bitterly regret not having immediate access to the rest of the series. The Unveiling was just such a book; I was vaguely aware of the fact that it was sitting on my "historical-romance" shelf doing nothing, and since I’d been in a medieval mood I picked it up on a whim and next thing [...]

    4. This book took me by surprise for at least three reasons:1. As a freebie on , my expectations guided by experience were not very high. Well, I'm happy to say, I was wrong. From its highly atmospheric setting to a slow burning romance, this was a tale of courage, mystery, and adventure beautifully told. I loved the dialogue, were an archaic word was thrown in occasionally to give a feel of authenticity.2. One of the GR tags for the story was Christian Fiction. Admittedly, I never read the genre b [...]

    5. The first book in Tamara Leigh's Age Of Faith series. Lady Annyn Bretanne vows revenge on the man she believes is responsible for her brother's death. She goes to Baron Wulfrith disguised as a boy, waiting for the opportunity.Tamara Leigh wrote a historical romance series back in the 1990s that I loved, the Bride series. Shortly after she turned to inspirational contemporary and I stopped reading her but I do have plans to check out her contemporary work someday. This book is listed as an Inspir [...]

    6. I loved everything about this book. As an author and editor, I have a hard time these days finding a novel that will actually hold my interest. This one kept me riveted. I read it straight through in a day. I loved tough, scrappy Annyn, and the book brimmed with excitement and energy. I personally liked that it was a bit sexy for an inspirational novel, but that it also had a lovely thread of forgiveness and redemption woven throughout. I also found the author's historical research to be very ac [...]

    7. The Unveiling is another book for which I have somewhat mixed feelings. Truthfully, I did enjoy it in parts especially with the rich descriptions of some of the settings like the fortress where Wulfrith’s mother lives, and the some of the period details did seem well done. Also, the historical backdrop allowed for tension and drama which could add to the story. The first half may have been better, before the ‘unveiling’ with some interesting descriptions of military training, though the se [...]

    8. This one came highly recommended and I can totally get why people love it so much. Ms. Leigh is a great storyteller and really created a believable medieval world, I felt like I had been transported to 1149 England. To be honest, I think reading about it is the only way I would want to experience it. What a harsh time to live, especially for women.Lady Annyn has been raised by her Uncle, older brother and the head of their guard, Rowan. Her mother died when she was young and while her Uncle trie [...]

    9. Esta es la primera vez que leo un romance medieval, así que empezaré diciendo que ni soy experta en el tema ni voy a poder juzgar su precisión histórica, sólo puedo decir que no me ha chocado nada en especial y que la autora lo ha hecho todo bastante creíble.Me ha gustado. Me ha parecido bastante realista, la autora no se lanza a la piscina sin más sino que les da a sus personajes antecedentes para que la historia resulte creíble. A pesar de que está catalogada como un romance cristiano [...]

    10. Lady Annyn Bretanne was not very ladylike at all, at 14 she was as tomboyish as you can get. Her brother and Uncle are the only family members she has left. She was distraught when her brother Jonas dies at Knight training. Annyn knows he was murdered and turns her life into finding the truth and revenge. Four years later when her Uncle dies, Duke Henry, the future King, plans to marry her off. She runs away and pretends to be a boy to get into the Knight training and kill her brother's murderer [...]

    11. Yeah, I couldn't put it down; SERIOUSLY!!! If you like Christian novels and you like medieval settings, then you will love The Unveiling! It is full of action, revenge, mysteries that need unraveling, and yeah, there is romance too! Ms. Leigh has a way with words because everything flowed beautifully. The characters had distinct personalities and I found myself sympathizing with each main character at certain points. The "lessons" that were taught by Wulfrith to Annyn were priceless and I loved [...]

    12. Tamara Leigh has done it again! This was a fantastic book that I simply couldn't put down. A gripping story filled with compelling characters, it is a masterpiece! Steeped in history, the story moved along at a great pace, keeping you enthralled and interested as the pieces unfolded. Annyn is a wonderfully brave and caring character that most would feel a connection with. Garr is a layered and wonderfully wrought protagonist. Their interaction and romance curled my toes and had been yelling enco [...]

    13. I give this book four out of five stars for an engaging plot, a fine cast of characters, and some very nice action scenes for a romance novel. There’s a great deal of bodice ripping heat for a novel that does not show the reader any fire. The Christian theme is subtle and well done. It’s part of the characters beliefs, and overall an organic element to the setting.What I liked about the book:1) The plot. There is a risk of becoming campy anytime a character is set somewhere in disguise, espe [...]

    14. 5+++ stars 😉 I first read this book a little over three years ago. Apparently my original review is on a different edition of this book. Anyway, since Book 6 was recently released, I just started re-reading this series. It is my all-time favorite medieval/historical romance series. By FAR. I don’t know how Tamara Leigh does it, but every single one of her books has a strong, perfectly imperfect male main character, yet they’re never cookie-cutter copies of each other. And ugh. GARR. He is [...]

    15. I loved this book! From the start to finish. I was mesmerized! Loved it!! I thought the author did a great job of the pacing of this book. I felt like everything developed at the perfect time for the flow of the story. Nothing was ever too drawn out or over done. Which in a story like this could of happened. I thought Gar was great and Annyn was so fierce. You were rooting for them from the moment they met. The thing I love most about this book is that even though it's a series it can completely [...]

    16. I debated whether to rate this a two star or three star book, but since I don't think I will finish it, I guess it is two stars. It really bugged me how he could quote his Christian beliefs about vengeance belongs to God but could visit harlots and talk about harlots and it was okay. I kept reading, but it just went downhill from there. Lots of innuendo, talk of affairs, etc. and I just generally lost interest. I know that this is still considered "clean," but it just wasn't sweet to me. I liked [...]

    17. Tired of one dimensional protagonists with paper thin supporting characters? Read The Unveiling and imbibe deeply in the richly developed world, the heartfelt characters and the budding romance. Each person is fully drawn, given believable motivations and endowed with a uniqueness all their own. The two protagonists shine as you wait impatiently for them to get together. And when they finally do, you're rewarded with a gallant and swoon-worthy climax. I'm looking forward, not only to the next in [...]

    18. This book is seriously difficult to put down once you’ve started! I first read this series a few years ago, but was recently inspired to read it again because (a) a friend has been reading them for the first time, and absolutely raving about them on Facebook; and (b) THERE’S GOING TO BE A BOOK #6! Aside from wanting to refresh my memory in time for the release of #6, I remember thinking they were a good read at the time, and I was curious as to whether they would compare to my memory.Oh yeah [...]

    19. Stories set in the twelfth century are not my usual selections. I recently had the chance to review some of Tamara Leigh's contemporary books, but in researching the author became much more interested in her medieval tales instead. I found out she used to write them for the general market before switching to Christian fiction, which added a level of intrigue for this reader."The Unveiling" is the story of Annyn, a young woman grieving the loss of her only brother. When his body was returning fro [...]

    20. Yay! Five stars everywhere!I love me a good medieval romance, and Ms. Leigh did not disappoint! Though parts of the story were somewhat typical of the genre, they felt brand new and interesting. I loved the characters, the setting, the language, and the prose. Ms. Leigh writes in such a way that I can clearly picture what she is talking about even with all the medieval jargon.Count me in for the rest of the Age of Faith series!

    21. Despite the medieval era being one of my interests, and though I do enjoy romance most of the time, The Unveiling just didn't exceed two stars for me. It tells the story of a young woman who, embittered by her brother's dishonorable death, dresses up as a man and goes through a young man's training in order to extract revenge on the one who she thinks killed Jonas. From there, troubles abound and lessons are learned. I don't know I just couldn't get into this book. I'm not saying it was bad writ [...]

    22. WHAT IT'S ABOUT12th century England: Two men vie for the throne: King Stephen the usurper and young Duke Henry the rightful heir. Amid civil and private wars, alliances are forged, loyalties are betrayed, families are divided, and marriages are made. For four years, Lady Annyn Bretanne has trained at arms with one end in mind—to avenge her brother’s murder as God has not deemed it worthy to do. Disguised as a squire, she sets off to exact revenge on a man known only by his surname, Wulfrith. [...]

    23. I struggled with this at the beginning. Due mostly to the old style of language, and for me confusion for a while as to who was who. However, as I persevered the story became clearer.The book would have had to have been awful for me to put it aside, and it certainly wasn't that. In fact the more I read the more I liked it.However, I really wish the author had written the characters thoughts in italics. It got a little confusing at times.I found Annyn annoying, but warmed to her as the story prog [...]

    24. Overall a good read. The heroine takes some getting used to. She's a bit thick headed and shrewish but she really does grow on you--eventually. I liked the hero from the beginning. A lot of people complained about him being so devote yet speaking of harlots and sex. It's really not mentioned much and only in thought most of the time--he was never with anyone other than his wife throughout the book. Also just because a man is devote doesn't mean that he is perfect. In fact many Christians back th [...]

    25. Twelfth century England. When Annyn's brother's body is returned home from knight training, Baron Wulfrith announces that his death was an honorable one. But after he leaves, Annyn finds evidence that proves otherwise. Convinced that Wulfrith murdered her brother, Annyn vows revenge. She assumes the identity of a squire and enters the baron's training program in disguise where she waits for the opportunity to slit his throat. That is, if she can survive the rigors of battle training long enough [...]

    26. This was a freebie I downloaded on Kindle, and I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. I stayed up way too late reading this because I wanted to know how it ended. I won't go into the plot and details because you can find that on the back cover, but this was a well-written book with an interesting plot, fascinating setting (even though I definitely wouldn't want to live in Medieval times, I love reading about it), lots of action and suspense, and a fun romance ;) I also love tha [...]

    27. Ms. Leigh's writing is captivating and so far, her books have been near-nigh impossible for me to put down! I was immediately drawn into the story, and I found myself anxiously awaiting the moment that Annyn was revealed for who she really was. The story was intriguing and the romance, once Annyn was revealed, was worth the wait. :)I am thoroughly enjoying these medieval books and am so glad that this a series and there are four more books I can immediately get my hands on! Love that I don't hav [...]

    28. More in depth reviews will post soon at HEA and EIR, but suffice it to say: I couldn't put this one down. Read until the wee hours Saturday night, went to church, sat in the car with my Kindle while my family ate Chinese food after church, and finished it on the drive home.Get it. Read it. Love it.Tamara Leigh, you rock my medieval romance world.

    29. While I like and expect some sexual content in my romance reads, this clean historical romance had an interesting, riveting plot with a likeable H/h and an HEA. This is my first read by the author, and I would have liked the story better if there were at least two steamy scenes included to match the inner dialog and emotional angst of the H/h.
