    13 for some mature elements.I really enjoyed this collection of stories about some of Rachel Rossano s secondary characters Delving into the world of Reginald was particularly fun Isabeth s Redemption was a close second in my estimation of favorites The book had a great medieval feel and most of it was pretty historically accurate I love all things medieval, so this book was a very fun read I know it s not historical fiction I believe it is meant to be historical fantasy , but modern word 13 for some mature elements.I really enjoyed this collection of stories about some of Rachel Rossano s secondary characters Delving into the world of Reginald was particularly fun Isabeth s Redemption was a close second in my estimation of favorites The book had a great medieval feel and most of it was pretty historically accurate I love all things medieval, so this book was a very fun read I know it s not historical fiction I believe it is meant to be historical fantasy , but modern words such as okay did throw me a couple of times I really wish Rossano could be persuaded to write a full fledged historical fiction novel If you have enjoyed Rachel s books, be sure to pick this one up and get great insight into the minds and hearts of some of her popular secondary characters The Earl of Dentin makes many appearances enough said.Recommended

    Absolutely what I needed to help me wait for Novel 3 in the Novels of Rhynan The Making of a Man helped me understand Simon better I found these short stories impossible to put this book down They are so well written I could hear the noisy clomping of the men through the trees and brush when they should be quiet At times I held my breath at what was coming but I was always surprised Rachel knows how to bring her characters to life I just wish they were real I d love to meet them I high Absolutely what I needed to help me wait for Novel 3 in the Novels of Rhynan The Making of a Man helped me understand Simon better I found these short stories impossible to put this book down They are so well written I could hear the noisy clomping of the men through the trees and brush when they should be quiet At times I held my breath at what was coming but I was always surprised Rachel knows how to bring her characters to life I just wish they were real I d love to meet them I highly, highly recommend this book along with Duty and Honor

    Ummm kay I loved this I m thinking I may really love short story collections centered in a series I enjoyed as a general rule, but either way, this was awesome And I really loved the fact that they centered around Dentin he s not a terribly complex character at least in my mind , but there s so much unexplored depth beneath the surface Not to mention, he s just an awesome character in the first place.

    As per usual, Ms Rossano swept me into the vivid world of her characters until I felt as if I were roaming about the country alongside them The short stories are well paced and provide great backstory to Simon Dentin and other characters in the Rhynan novels While it is not necessary to have read the first two novels of the Rhynan series to enjoy A Making of a Man, I would recommend doing so as it enriches the stories and relationships in the anthology Ms Rossano s writing is compelling and As per usual, Ms Rossano swept me into the vivid world of her characters until I felt as if I were roaming about the country alongside them The short stories are well paced and provide great backstory to Simon Dentin and other characters in the Rhynan novels While it is not necessary to have read the first two novels of the Rhynan series to enjoy A Making of a Man, I would recommend doing so as it enriches the stories and relationships in the anthology Ms Rossano s writing is compelling and I loved the interactions between Simon Dentin and Elsa I m looking forward to the third Rhynan novel

    A much loved addition to the series. The Making of a Man is much like the deleted scenes button on a movie. Each of these short stories helps us to know a different person from the Duty, Honor upcoming Faith series. And gives you teasers for the upcoming book. I love this series and share it will all my nieces The characters are realistic and lovable. Each damaged in their own way much like we all are For Anyone who has read Duty and Honor. This is a MUST read Bravo to the Aut A much loved addition to the series. The Making of a Man is much like the deleted scenes button on a movie.

    Great roundup of short storiesThis was a great idea carried off extremely well by Ms Rossano and adding much to the stories of and backgrounds and potential futures of some of our favorite characters from the Novels of Rhynan in particular Simon Dentin and Elsa Love these two so much and now eagerly await book three of the series

    A great read to fill in the blanks and prep the reader for Book 3 in the Novels of Rhynan series Each story flowed well and added to the overall experience of the setting and feel that are brought to life by the author While I enjoyed each one, my favorite was Isbeth s Redemption something about it just grabbed me and held on tight I can t wait to read

    She resumed preparing the four meals The bread was three days old, but not growing anything on it yet A bit of butter on the sliced and lightly toasted bread hid the staleness She selected a wine bottle from Tarian s collection and added it with two goblets to the trays Spoons, linen napkins and a tablecloth for the table completed the load She opened the door wide enough for her to carry the trays through As she turned back to claim the food from the table, Ashfield caught her skirt in hi She resumed preparing the four meals The bread was three days old, but not growing anything on it yet A bit of butter on the sliced and lightly toasted bread hid the staleness She selected a wine bottle from Tarian s collection and added it with two goblets to the trays Spoons, linen napkins and a tablecloth for the table completed the load She opened the door wide enough for her to carry the trays through As she turned back to claim the food from the table, Ashfield caught her skirt in his fish Isbeth looked down to meet his intense gaze Be careful If the cousin sees me, they will kill me This short story collection spans over a range of time, to include a wide variety of characters These characters all find themselves having similar relationships in common, linking them back to the Earl of Dentin It is a remarkable feat to have one person characterized throughout most of their life, as they contribute to others lives in the same aspect Rossano has a really great collection, some stories areentertaining than others, but not any less important on the road to the making of a man This author captivates her readers with the ongoing string of lives that interweave themselves into what makes the Earl such a wonderful, caring and compassionate leader Simon becomes the Earl of Dentin very early in life, after the accidental death of his father by his brother, Nigel s hand during a hunting outing After the disappearance of Nigel, Simon s other brother takes the blame for the accidental death and is executed Simon vows to find his brother, but after several years, it becomes a waning and impossible task He decides to become the best leader that he can to the people who he still governs Several stories are told, involving a kitchen maid, an abandoned widow, the King s adventure at finding a bride and so on With so many responsibilities and allegiances, can the Earl of Dentin find his way out of the horrific past to be the man, a leader who is fierce, but also kind Can he protect those who really need it or will he become like so many other leaders, a corrupt man filled with greed and heartless devotion Rossano has a wonderful short story anthology, filled with superb character development and creativity This author shares so many aspects of life, readers will find one if not many stories that pull at them due to content or morality While these stories are highly entertaining, there are a lot of grammatical errors which could deter readers from some enjoyment If you are a reader of historical fiction and fantasy, you may enjoy reading these stories This is a collection of stories that are part of a much larger series by Rossano called The Rhynan Saga As a reader, you are able to read this anthology as a standalone without feeling overwhelmed or lost however, it may be beneficial to read this series beginning with book one A copy of this book was provided to Turning Another Page by the Silver Dagger Scriptorium Tours, but this in no way affects our honest opinion of the book or the review that has been written

    I probably was not the intended or ideal audience for this book, as I have not yet read the preceding books in the Novels of Rynan series, and I was not familiar with most of the characters I m not a huge fan of fantasy, but I prefer it in this form that is Historical fantasy, which does not include mythical creatures or magic etc, but is rather like historical fiction with the exception being set in an invented place Rossano has created in Rhynan, and the surrounding states, an interesti I probably was not the intended or ideal audience for this book, as I have not yet read the preceding books in the Novels of Rynan series, and I was not familiar with most of the characters I m not a huge fan of fantasy, but I prefer it in this form that is Historical fantasy, which does not include mythical creatures or magic etc, but is rather like historical fiction with the exception being set in an invented place Rossano has created in Rhynan, and the surrounding states, an interesting and realistic medieval world with cultural s, customs and laws that reflect historical reality such as the fosterage of young boys from noble families with other families where they are taught to fight There is feuding between noble families, and tensions between them and the King, a civil war, and mention of a Charter and expectations which those who rule are supposed to adhere to There are a number of things that put me off certain works of Medieval fiction and are likely to result in lower rating, or ruin my enjoyment One is the imposition of attitudes and values that stand out as very obviously modern modern feminism, liberalism, republican or revolutionary idealsakin to those of the eighteenth century and after , and without basis in the setting or period Good fantasy is supposed to be self contained and credible A world with its own rules and norms not modern people in fancy dress Thankfully, the author seems to have avoided such details in her work Only a few beliefs of one or two characters seemed a little on the modern side, and I did notice a fair few modern terms and phrases and Americanisms The word Okay was used once having its origins in nineteenth century Boston, it does not have a place in Medieval Fiction , but that might have been an oversight Still I guess that s to be expected in a book written by an American There were no potatoes, which is a plus, considering how often these American plants are too often associated with the Medieval European or European type past The anthology consists of eight self contained stories of varying length, involving some of the main characters from the full length novels in which shed light on incidents in their lives, they meet their loves, or have various other adventures All of them were interesting and I felt well written, despite some being very short Some of the leading characters who I suspect only have a role in the novels were wonderful I liked the Earl of Dentin s formidable cook Gelsey, and reading about some of her exploits Altogether, The Making of a Man is well thought out collection of stories that complement the series well Those who have already read the others will likely enjoy learningabout their favourite characters as well being introduced to some new ones and their imaginative world Those who have not read anything else by this author might still enjoy these, but the stories probably makesense in context I was given an electronic edition of this book by the author for the purposes of giving a review I was not required to write a positive one and all opinions expressed are my own
