Thrust into an unfamiliar world, Lily is forced to align herself with Wren, a young knight from a rival land. With war looming, they must set aside generations of contention to save the ruling family — as well as Lily’s own people — from annihilation. But when a shocking secret is revealed, her allegiance to her clan and her growing feelings for Wren are called into question. Now, Lily must make a choice: continue on the conflict-ridden path of her kin or break down the barriers in her land . . . and her heart.

I think I would have enjoyed this book more if I had read it rather than listen to it. I enjoyed the readers portrayals of most of the characters, but she did a little too good of a job of whining for miss Lilly. But the end carried the book pretty well.
I ended up liking this book, even though the beginning was really hard for me to get into. I'm not sure why, there was plenty of action and fighting at the beginning, maybe it was just too much to be cast right into Lily's turbulent world right then. I liked Lily, she's smart, loyal and by the end confident of who she is. I liked Wren too, he's full of honor, and love for his family and country. There is plenty of action in this book, and a touch of romance too! This is a very good debut novel from Jennifer K Clark.
Good read overall.
I love the cover for The Knight of Redmond and have enjoyed the medieval romances that I've read, so I was excited to read this book.
The Knight of Redmond has quite a bit of action with a good romance. It also has some great characters. I especially liked how Lily was so observant. This character trait reminded me a bit of Sherlock Holmes, and made figuring out what was going on more intriguing.
This clever story was pretty engaging early on with its inclusion of "witches", knights, superstition, secret groups, murder, etc. I found my attention waning somewhat as everything unfolded, although I can't put my finger on why. In spite of that, I liked the story overall.
