The Noble Servant: A Review

She lost everything to the scheme of an evil servant.
But she might just gain what she’s always wanted . . .
if she makes it in time.

The impossible was happening. She, Magdalen of Mallin, was to marry the Duke of Wolfberg. Magdalen had dreamed about receiving a proposal ever since she met the duke two years ago. Such a marriage was the only way she could save her people from starvation. But why would a handsome, wealthy duke want to marry her, a poor baron’s daughter? It seemed too good to be true.

On the journey to Wolfberg Castle, Magdalen’s servant forces her to trade places and become her servant, threatening not only Magdalen’s life, but the lives of those she holds dear. Stripped of her identity and title in Wolfberg, where no one knows her, Magdalen is sentenced to tend geese while she watches her former handmaiden gain all Magdalen had ever dreamed of.

When a handsome shepherd befriends her, Magdalen begins to suspect he carries secrets of his own. Together, Magdalen and the shepherd uncover a sinister plot against Wolfberg and the duke. But with no resources, will they be able to find the answers, the hiding places, and the forces they need in time to save both Mallin and Wolfberg?

The Review:

The Noble Servant is the third book in the Medieval Fairy Tale series. They are pretty quick and easy reads they follow people who have met in other books. So I wouldn't read out of order. The Noble Servant is filled with easy enough and maybe generic characters. The plot is just as easy to follow and maybe just as generic.

 I am sorry to say I have read all three and I like them less and less. Melanie Dickersons books in my opinion are all extremely similar. I felt through reading this book that I had read it before. Even books that are not in this series. They feel like they could be mistaken to be a part of this series.

I try not to be extremely negative I mean these are pretty quick and it is nice that they are fairy tale retellings it's always nice to see different authors takes on retellings. But I am said to say this author is no longer my cup of tea.


I was given this book in exchange for my honest review from BookLookBloggers.
