My Review:

3/5 Stars!

Lady, Thy Name is Trouble is a fantastical novel filled with action, sword & sorcery, magic and danger…even a little romance!

Tara is pretty kickbutt when it comes to her fighting skills.  She is always getting herself in trouble, but when trouble finds her she and her sister can hold their own.  They are underestimated which gives them a nice element of surprise.

Character-building and descriptive prowess are McLaughlin’s strengths!  This book is an immersive experience with the way McLaughlin describes the world and characters.  Let’s talk about the characters.  Tara is one strong female heroine.  I loved her.  The secondary characters are developed enough you can picture them in your head.  My only complaint was that it was a bit slow at times, but for the rest of the book, I can get over that.

This epic novel is a stunner!  (Warning, it ends on a heck of a cliff-hanger!)

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
