When I read The Flesh Endures a couple of weeks ago for the Jeep Diva, I hadn’t realized that I would be revisiting Lord Karolan Rakka and Garnetta again in The Flesh Constrained.
Picking up right where the previous book ended, Lord Karolan and Garnetta traveled to the Flanders in order to start their lives over. Lord Karolan is on a quest to find Heinrich Eckert, a member of the Illuminate, in order to continue his alchemy work. While on their journey, Lord Karolan and Garnetta follow a path of destruction caused by Eckert, who has succumbed to madness, and his cult, the Brethren of the Bone Cross. During this journey, the author continues to explore Garnetta’s adjustments to immortal life, her relationship with Lord Karolan, and most tragically, the possibility that she will never become a mother. Lord Karolan, who has been immortal for over two hundred years, loves Garnetta so much that he protects Garnetta from all foes in order to spare her generous heart. Garnetta has every right to be upset with the society around her, but Garnetta does not have an eye-for-an-eye nature. Cleo Cordell does a masterful job of maintaining Garnetta’s Christian nature, which made me enjoy this story even more.
Lord Karolan and Garnetta are a magnificent couple and their explorations and emotional development are intense and beautifully told in this memorable novel.
I received an eBook copy from the publisher for purpose of an honest review for The Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
