Book Review: The Shield

Monday, March 26, 2018

 Hi Everyone!

Happy Spring! I am glad to be participating in the Spring Reads event with Clink Street this year. I am bringing you a review of 'The Shield.'

Author: C.J. Bentley
Personal Review:Do you enjoy a book about Medieval times? Do you picture yourself in the English countryside? Then this may be the book for you. This book was just what I needed for a spring break vacation! :)

I enjoyed the book, the characters, and the ways in which they interacted with one another. The book was a pretty quick read, so I appreciated that as well.

The good news? This book is part of a series, so more to come! Thanks for the opportunity to read.

Disclaimer: While I was awarded this book from Clink Street, all opinions are my own.


The Shield
People lose their belongings. That is a fact of life. It can happen by accident, but sometimes it can happen when you put them in a very safe place and forget where that safe place is. Not many people are good at finding them again.

A young, gutsy girl with a kind heart, who’s searching for her own identity growing up in the 1960s, just happens to be very good at finding things. Can she be the one to help return whatever is lost – anywhere and at any time - to its original owner? 

With the help of a beautiful yet mysterious wise woman and a chivalrous knight she does just that. She finds and returns his shield, lost in battle, which unbeknown to her holds a secret that is important to his King, the safety of the Kingdom and the life of the daughter of his best friend.
The Shield is the first story in The Finder Series, taking our heroine on extraordinary journeys back in time. Her first adventure takes place in Medieval England in 1340 where she meets King Edward III, his wife Philippa and their son, who will later become the Black Prince.

About the author: Originally heralding from the North of England, C.J Bentley has travelled extensively and enjoyed living in a variety of countries across the world from Dubai to Doha, Qatar and now the countryside in the South of France. A background in teaching and childcare she has always enjoyed creating adventure short stories. However, it was when she became a grandma and with her grandchildren growing up  that she discovered that books seemed to contain only stories of vampires, zombies and farts that she decided seriously to take matters into her own hands and put pen to paper which today she calls The Finder Series.

Happy Reading!
