Daring You to Read - The Silver Sword by Angela Elwell Hunt

Daring You to Read is hosted by Tynga over at Tynga's Reviews.

This week I'm daring you to read The Silver Sword by Angela Elwell Hunt.
The auburned-haired O'Connor women share a bond far deeper than their striking physical appearance. These courageous, high-spirited women all push against societal limits in this exciting historical, romantic novel that spans generations and countries from 13th-century Ireland to the excitement and mystery of 15th-century Prague.

It is said that as Cahira, daughter of the great Irish king Rory O'Connor, lay dying of a wound from a Norman blade, she beseeched God that others would follow her calling. To Kathleen O'Connor, Cahira's story was nothing more than a fable--until research divulged that the tale was true. As a stunned Kathleen realizes that she herself bears the mark of Cahira, she wonders if she is destined to continue the legacy.

To uncover the answers, Kathleen delves into the past to find the truth about the Heirs of Cahira O'Connor. It is a journey that carries her across generations, from the battlefields of 13th-century Ireland to the castles of 15th-century Prague. It is a past filled with peril, courage, vengeance, love, and sacrifice beyond anything she has ever known.

This is a Christian Historical Fiction novel, and a great one to read. And in a way, it resembles the first novel in the Song of the Lioness series, Alanna. Anika's father is killed and she seeks revenge against the man who's killed him. It's a tale of vengeance, romance, surprise and encouragement.

I dare you to read it.
