Why I read this book: I’m always game to try a new author.
My name is Romeo Harmon, and I’m the new sheriff of Prosper Woods, a small California town smack dab in the middle of the sequoia forest. People around here tell me the town hasn’t changed a whole hell of a lot since power lines and telephones were installed. It’s a quaint place with a movie theater that shows the old classics, a saloon with a decent choice of beer, a general store with a grumpy old coot behind the till, a gas station with a pimply young mechanic, and a bed and breakfast that attracts tourists and vacation money.
I think I’m gonna like it here.
My name is Vincent Lasco. I’ve searched a long time to find a new place to settle down. Because of what I am, I need to pull up stakes and start over every 20 years or so – before people realize that I don’t age anymore. Prosper Woods has everything a man like me could ever want. Though there aren’t many humans, it doesn’t really matter. I’m so old, I don’t need to eat very often, and there’s no reason to expose myself to the locals whom I hope to call friends some day.
I think I’m gonna like it here.
There are newcomers in town. Prosper Woods is a nice place, as long as you’re passing through. I wonder how long these folks will stay once they find out what’s really going on here. Somehow….
I don’t think they’re gonna like it here.
True Knight is the prequel to the Prosper Woods Chronicles
Just about every book I’ve read recently has been a paranormal, and most of those have been shifter books. When the opportunity arose to dip my toe (or jump in completely) to Prosper Woods, I leapt at the chance. Patricia Logan is a new-to-me author but she’s been around for a long time. I figured deciding to listen to these books was a no-brainer.
Romeo has recently left the big city of LA to move up to Northern California. Prosper Woods is near the famous Sequoia Forest which I have always wanted to visit. Now, he’s gone from being a small fish in a big pond to a huge fish in a small pond. Being a sheriff will do that. He’s in for the shock of his life, though, because Prosper Woods is no ordinary town.
Vincent is a new resident in town. He has to move every twenty years or so because eventually people notice he isn’t aging. What began as a life as a knight seven hundred years ago has carried him through a lot of history. He sets up an antiques store as a cover and has a basement built to suit his…unusual needs. To him, Prosper Woods is just another stop in his eternal life.
When Romeo and Vincent meet, there are instant sparks. Like, major chemistry. And although Vincent senses Romeo is different, the lawman is positively clueless. Until things come to a head and all is revealed. And I won’t give away the biggest secret because I so did not see that coming and I want other listeners to have the same ‘wow’ moment. I mean, I thought I’d seen it all – I was wrong.
I’m excited I’ve been able to pick up the series and am listening back-to-back and just before I move on, I want to say John Solo did an excellent job of narrating. He nailed the California accent while also managing Vincent’s European one.
