I m sorry, Netgalley, I can t do it this is unbearable I might be able to cope with the present tense, but really Another book that sets out to make reenactors look foolish and by someone who IS in the SCA I hope they drum her out Awful.Also The Renaissance and medieval periods are how can I put this DIFFERENT Not interchangeable The 5% of this I managed to get through made me ill.
Have you ever finished a book and still weren t sure exactly how you felt about it That s pretty much where I was at the end of Tender is the Knight.I really liked the premise, and the story had promise, it just never seemed to deliver One of the problems that I had was that I never really connected with the characters Lisa fell head over heals in love with Phil, but I was never really sure why He never did anything that gained my respect as a leading character, let alone make me even come close [...]
Overall, a 3.5 5, but I found myself getting frustrated with Lisa a lot, and actually with Phil as well What really attracted me to this story was that it involved LARPing via the SCA, and that it took place in Ohio It was fairly well written but sometimes I didn t understand Lisa s strange mood swings Still, a decent read.
Very fun romp through the SCA Really enjoyed this
This is such a good book I ve read it twice already
I think in the last year and a half, and I m non exaggerating, this is one of the most boring books I ve read Tender in the Knight, but also boring at this point.The cover of the book it is enchanting, but everything stops there.The story recounts the experience of Lisa Marie Smith that is dragged from her closest friend in the world of SCA Society of Creative Anachronism , which creates events reproducting the medieval historical period, plunging its members in a reality in which men become nob [...]
Jamaica Layne s Tender is the Knight wasn t exactly what I was expecting, but I really liked it.I know that there are people in the world who reenact all kinds of different things, from all kind of different era, but to read a book about them that s first for me and it was really educational and interesting But the love story in this book that s traditional Just form time to time all this secrecy thing and this being too obsessed with things, was too much for me At one point I really thought tha [...]
Haven t read it yet only just heard about it and I usually avoid erotica based novels as they tend to get boring very fast But this one is set in the SCA, and let s face it, I still have a fond warmth for it after all these years We ll see how it goes.
Pretty good book This book introduced me to the SCA, an organization of medieval re enactors that have tournaments feasts all year long, all over the country Sounds pretty cool to me.
