The Noble Servant

The Noble Servant is the latest tale by Melanie Dickerson in her Medieval Fairy Tale series.  Lady Magdalen of Mallen has received a marriage proposal from Steffan, the Duke of Wolfberg. After Magdalen and Steffan had met two years prior at Thoornbeck Castle, Magdalen had been hoping to see Steffan again.  She just had not expected a marriage proposal!

After Magdalen arrives at Wolfberg castle, she  discovers that her servant, Agnes, and her father, Erlich, plan to force her to switch places with Agnes, under the threat of death.  Now Magdalen must take on the position of a servant!

While Steffan is on his way home, after his years studying at a university overseas, he is suddenly attacked by two guards sent by his uncle Hazen.  Steffan is surprised to learn that his uncle is attempting to take control of his castle and his lands.  His uncle has removed everyone at the castle who could prove his rightful place!

You have to wonder how Magdalen and Steffan will be able to prove their rightful place in their world.  This is a fun, fast-paced tale as you watch these two attempt to avoid danger in this world where everyone seems out to get them!

I received this book from Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest review.
