MEDIA REVIEWS
With bardic skill, Wichman weaves a fresh account of the war between light and darkness for Camelot 's heritage, holding the reader spellbound to the last and leaving them wanting more.--Linda Windsor"Award-winning author, Maire, Riona, and Deirdre (The Fires o" (06/03/2004)
A breathtaking tale you won't be able to put down!--Christina Lewis"Bookshelf Book Reviews" (11/18/2005)
"This is Linda Wichman's first novel, but it won't be her last! Legend of the Emerald Rose is masterfully woven with all the skillful elements of good story-telling. You can almost believe you're right back there in that ancient time; it's for sure you'll feel the goose-flesh rise when Morgause turns up, knowing something awful is going to happen. And only Rayn, Arthur's rightful heir, can end the violence and restore peace and order. But at what price?"-- (04/01/2005)
"It's hard to believe Legend of the Emerald Rose is Ms. Wichman's first book. It is a powerful epic tale of adventure, romance, and a battle of good versus evil. The banter between hero and heroine is lively and fun, and the sparks that flow between them could illuminate a power station. It's obvious that Ms. Wichman spent many hours of research in preparing to write her manuscript. I truly hope she'll utilize what she's learned and write a sequel. Rich with historical detail, sensual but clean heart-tugging romance, and a commanding yet subtle faith message, Legend of the Emerald Rose is one of this year's must-read novels."-- (03/01/2005)
"Not being a big fan of fantasy, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from the Legend of the Emerald Rose. I was pleasantly surprised. Linda Wichman does an amazing job of bringing to life the post-Camelot days. The characters were so real that at times I wondered if the story wasn't true, even though I knew it couldn't possibly be. Ms. Wichman digs deep and makes the reader easily empathize with the characters. This is one of those stories that you hate to see end."-- (02/27/2006)
"Wichman displays an unusual and bold flair for the dramatic. With a fresh, engaging voice, she uniquely spins the Arthurian legend."-- (04/12/2006)
Legend of the Emerald Rose was a historical romance finalist for the Romance Writers of American Golden Heart Contest. It is perfect for Christian libraries with a strong romance and fantasy fiction section.-- (09/01/2006)
"Linda Wichman weaves Arthurian legend and fiction to create a unique story. She uses just the right amount of Celtic accent to add a level of authenticity to the book, but not so much it muddles the reader. Her use of historic detail, characters with personality, and in-depth knowledge of the time period create a storyworld that draws the reader in from the first word. A book I'd recommend without hesitation."-- (09/01/2006)
"Linda Wichman does a great job of recreating the fascinating world of the Isle of Might and the hardy souls who lived there. Legend of the Emerald Rose is chock full of love, romance, bravery, and epic struggles between the forces of good and evil. It is also well salted with biblical truths, revealed through the lives of her characters. I am happy to recommend Legend of the Emerald Rose for your need to read list."-- (10/01/2006)
