Popular Ebook Knight's Lady Received from the publishers (Book View Cafe) in ebook format via Librarything's Early reviewers May 2013 batch.This is the third in the MacNeil time travel series.This is the third in the MacNeil time travel series. It's a few months after the last book. Alex has been away for several months checking out the new lands granted to him by the king. Trefor, who fell down into fairy land at the end of the last book (Knight's Blood), has been abandoned by his "love" Morag but has been taught loads of faerie magic in the months of captivity to the point where the magic no longer makes his head hurt.Alex makes the briefest of appearances, having been injured during the kidnapping of Lindsay but the fairy lord from the previous book - An Reubair. This injury prevents him from following his king into Ireland for the summer campaign, so it means he sends Trefor off in his stead. A poor decision in a camp raid, means that Alex spends much of his time in the dungeon unbeknown to Reubair, who is trying to pressure Lindsay above to divorce Alex and marry him. Lindsay spends much of the book trying not to fall into bed with Reubair, which is because of the "love potion" he keeps feeding her in her drink.Trefor, hearing that his mother has been captured and that Alex has apparently gone off in the wrong direction to go get her, travels to Ireland in order to go rescue her. He spends a week at another castle where the daughter of the local lord teaches him the meaning of loyalty to king and family. All three parties end up in the same castle, along with Morag and the Fairy King. Things come to a head, and with a little help from the goddess Danu herself, everyone pulls out ok, with enough open threads for another book in the series.This felt like a shorter book to read than the previous ones. There were minimal accounts of Alex following the king around on endless trudging in the summer campaigns. There is less time spent with Trefor making a right pain of himself towards his parents (and how, after time travel, he's a year younger than his parents but more of how he rather fancies his mother, which is a whole book in itself, surely). Book is hovering between a 3 and a 4 star, so gets a 3.5
