My Review of The Roaming Adventurer

I really enjoy how this series doesn’t follow the normal pattern of oldest to youngest in telling the story.

The Roaming Adventurer started out with a hook that got me and it continued to hold my attention because of the characters.

Here are three reasons this book may intrigue you too!

  1. It has a shotgun wedding!
  2. The character’s introspection about the decisions they made and the consequences was very thought-provoking.
  3. The strength and development of the characters, Karen Baney does not shy away from making her characters take on tough jobs and subjects.

**Bonas: It’s a FAMILY Saga!

Overall, I found this book to be enjoyable and I am looking forward to seeing where book three will take me.

4 Stars.

*I volunteered to read this book in return for my honest feedback.
