Book Review: Andro, A Knight of Tenby: A Romance Novella by Ronnda Eileen Henry

Andro was born in a small village in the mountains of the Kingdom of Tenby. At the age of eight, he's orphaned by an accident and goes to live with his grandparents in a small village near the seacoast called Andro's Nook. When he comes of age he begins training as a man-at-arms with the dream of becoming a knight and then knight commander. He achieves his goal and enters the service of a foreign king as captain of his personal guard. Little would he know that on his first day of service he would meet a young woman who would touch his heart, a widow with a small son. The problem was, she was the king's daughter and he only the son of a goatherder. In addition, rumor has it that she was promised to a nobleman of another kingdom. But danger would stalk the king, his daughter, and her son. Would Andro's courageous actions in defense of the monarch and his family be enough to win her heart and the approval of the king?



 Henry’s best tale to date! It is actually the third book in her Knightly tales’ collection. The other two being Dunstan, A Knight of Crozby, and Edmund, A Knight of Selby. Andro, A Knight of Tenby tells the tale of Andro Erhard a young goat herder by trade. When tragedy strikes, he gets taken in by his grandparents and taken into the town of Andro’s Nook where he meets his best friend for life Devyn Archer. Both dreaming of their future Andro reveals he’s wanted to become a Knight of the King (his grandparent once served the king too.) Andro makes his dream come true soon rising to knight commander and Captain of his own troops. Sent to the kingdom of Uswick to assist the King there Andro meets the woman he would like to spend the rest of his days with. She happens to be the King's daughter, though. Andro though catches her attention by saving her son’s life. Danger soon erupts through endangering the would-be romance. The true danger though relies on the King. Will he allow their love to thrive?

I absolutely enjoyed this book! Presently I have read Henry’s works before, and this one stands out as number one in my opinion. The romance is flirtatious sweet and Henry goes completely dark in this tale is all I will state. I was altogether surprised by the turn of events. Typically, she is bright and happy with mediocre danger. Being that this tale is about a knight Henry I evaluate she could venture into that darker dangerous world of noble knights.

Henry will compel you to be engrossed with every word. I was utterly shocked and appalled as the characters were let me tell you! I do not want to give too much away, so I enthusiastically recommend Andro, Knight of Tenby.
On a bonus side, this novella is in connection to another tale she wrote “The Innkeepers Daughter." It’s the story behind in how Andro’s Nook was founded and how the Inn that is the center of Ando’s Nook was founded.
