Dina L. Sleiman in her new book, “Dauntless book coverDauntless” Book One in the Valiant Hearts series published by Bethany House introduces us to Lady Merry Ellison.

From the back cover:  Where Legend and History Collide,
One Young Woman Will Fight for the Innocent

Born a baron’s daughter, Lady Merry Ellison is now an enemy of the throne after her father’s failed assassination attempt upon the king. Bold and uniquely skilled, she is willing to go to any lengths to protect the orphaned children of her former village–a group that becomes known as “The Ghosts of Farthingale Forest.” Merry finds her charge more difficult as their growing notoriety brings increasing trouble their way.

Timothy Grey, ninth child of the Baron of Greyham, longs to perform some feat so legendary that he will rise from obscurity and earn a title of his own. When the Ghosts of Farthingale Forest are spotted in Wyndeshire, where he serves as assistant to the local earl, he might have found his chance. But when he comes face-to-face with the leader of the thieves, he’s forced to reexamine everything he’s known.  

Dina L. Sleiman has written an exciting book. “Dauntless” is filled with daring rescues, skilful exploits, deadly death traps and very evil enemies. All Merry is trying to do is keep the orphans feed, clothed and housed. It does take money so Merry steals it from the Prince. This action puts a price on her head. Medieval swords and gallantry that I haven’t read in quite a while and it is nice to have it back. Get ready for an exciting suspense ride as “Dauntless” is a thriller, which simply means that everyone’s lives are in danger from practically page one.  The lead characters are terrific and you root for them as you live through their various heart-throbbing encounters flipping the pages as fast as you can read.  Ms. Sleiman does  a truly remarkable job in this book while exciting us with this story that everyone will enjoy. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
