Worthy of Legend ~ Review

Worthy of Legend
The Secrets of the Isles #3
By Roseanna M. White

Worthy of Legend is the third and final book in The Secret of the Isles series, which I'll admit is always a little sad when a series concludes. I've loved all the books in this series and was glad to see Bram get his chance to be more than a grumbling morning bear with a huge sweet tooth. Libby's older brother, who just managed to hang around as all the mystery surrounding the long-hidden pirate treasure unfolds, gets his chance to be one of the heroes he's long secretly admired. 

Bram Sinclair, the Earl of Telford, gets his story, and it was well worth the wait. We learn he has always had a secret fascination with King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Or, in Libby's opinion, it's more of an obsession. But Bram's knowledge is about to come in very handy when an old diary hints at an Arthurian artifact hidden on the Isles. 

Lady Emily made her choice, and her family has cut her off until she makes her apologies. But standing for right isn't something to apologize for, and for once, Emily is going to take a stand. She just didn't realize how much it could cost her. Can the friends she's made over the summer be enough to withstand what is coming?

With Emily's family determined to make a find that will bring them further acclaim, it is a race to find and safeguard this long-lost piece of history. But more is at stake with Emily's brother Nigel searching the Isles. His utter cruelty could cost them more than a priceless treasure - it could cost them their lives.

Worthy of Legend is a fitting end to this series. I loved watching the characters change and grow. I never thought Bram would become a favorite, but he does so with this book, as we get glimpses of his strength of character (including a love of lost puppies). Mamm-wynn is one character I would love to get to know when she was younger. Did she have the special insight she shares now when she was young? I loved her character, and her words of wisdom and warning to her grandchildren and those who came to the isles added a special touch. She grounded everyone else as moments of crisis came.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion ~ all thoughts expressed are my own.

About the Book:
After a summer of successful pirate-treasure hunting, Lady Emily Scofield and her friends must hide the unprecedented discoveries they've made, thanks to the betrayal of her own family. Horrified by her brother, who stops at nothing to prove himself to their greedy father, Emily is forced to take a stand against her family--even when it means being cut off entirely.

Bram Sinclair, Earl of Telford, is fascinated with tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table--an interest he's kept mostly hidden for the last decade. But when a diary is unearthed on the islands that could lead to a secret artifact, Bram is the only one able to piece the legends together.

As Bram and Emily seek out the whereabouts of the hidden artifact, they must dodge her family and a team of archeologists. In a race against time, it is up to them to decide what makes a hero worthy of legend. Is it fighting valiantly to claim the treasure . . . or sacrificing everything in the name of selfless love?
