    1. I want to start this review out with these words do not overlook this book because it s a self published eBook, or because the cover design doesn t feature beautiful women in period dress Do not overlook it because the title is foreign, or because it s not another Tudor, Borgia or Marie Antoinette retelling If you like endearing characters and finding out their histories, you will love this story as I did.In a genre saturated with settings in England, France and Italy, Ginger Myrick presents her [...]

    3. I really, really enjoyed this story Loved the characters, loved the plot twists and turns, loved the formatting of the e book, loved getting a glimpse of 16th century Spain Several months ago I won a copy from the author and since it s a long story I waited until I had an e reader to read it on I shouldn t have waited, it s a great book Though my eyes are probably grateful I didn t read it on a computer screen This was definitely a book I could not read in one sitting, which was very enjoyable a [...]

    4. When I received this book in turn for an honest review, I wasn t sure it was going to captivate me, since I was unfamiliar with the European histories of this era Having already read The Welsh Healer by this author and thoroughly enjoying that initial ride, though, one day I gave El Rey a shot and I m so happy I did.After finishing El Rey, I felt emotionally richer for reading it, because captivate me it did Though I posessed no historical background regarding Iberia or Portugal, I found myself [...]

    5. Ginger Myrick s story of El Rey and Inez is well researched and crafted Each character and their history has a reason for being in the story Nothing is just page filler I enjoyed reading each persons life history from her parents to secondary character Paulina.I took a class in college on Iberia I knew some of the History Makers of the time, but her imagination and skills had me going and looking up things Not because I couldn t follow, but that I wanted to know .The story took me through so man [...]

    6. Often when I read a book that moves me emotionally I m left feeling inarticulate and struggle to write a review This book is having that effect on me From the beginning I was honestly anticipating a really good story and it has lived up to this The setting in Portugal and Spain was an instant attraction and as the story developed it surprised me in many ways The author truly focused on Estevao and Inez You do get a insight to the historical times but walk away with the feeling of a love story an [...]

    8. It is hard to know how to put into words just how wonderful a book this is Ginger Myrick has created a perfect book of historical romance That is the genre yet typing that makes it sound trivial Trivial is something this book is not There is history perfectly related through the wonderful characters Ginger has imagined and brought to life The way each of their stories are told took me back to my own life experiences and reignited desires, fond memories, sad times and how overwhelming our own emo [...]

    9. I rarely give a 5 star review, but El Rey is deserving of it This is the sweeping saga of the romance of Inez Garcia and El Rey, nephew of the King of Portugal in 16th century Portugal and Spain Interwoven into the story are four stories of those close to Inez and how they fit into her story It begins with Inez as an elderly women telling the story of her life and love to her great granddaughter From the beginning, I knew that I would love this book The author s description and imagery are so vi [...]

    10. By the time I had reached the middle of this book, I was sure it would be one of the few 5 I have read Sumptuously beautiful, fascinating characters, and a love which surpassed all time.There were times I wanted to scream, cry, kick the table and all other reactions, so heartwrenching was this story of the love between two people who seemed to have every obstacle in their path it shows the good side and bad side of the characters, has delightful animals, a beautiful Arabian horse which was enoug [...]

    12. The flavor and feel of El Rey reminded me of a hybrid cross of Thorn Birds and Like Water For Chocolate, and yet was sweetly wrought Sweeping and exotic in an interesting period of history If you enjoy epic, historical sweet romance, this book is for you.

    13. El Rey is ultimately a wonderfully told historical romance but it is also a rewarding multi generational tale of true love, loss, friendship and human growth, offering timeless lessons.The tragedies and sudden changes that life brings to an individual are a central theme yet this is an optimistic novel because its characters are made stronger by life s challenges and they grow to find renewed happiness.It is a deeply emotional novel with well rounded engaging characters that we learn to care for [...]

    14. 16 Century Portugal s issues provide the background for this romance between a teenage woman and an accomplished sailing master twice her age Complications aplenty thwart Inez s expectations to wed Estevao Her mother her sister Estevao s mother her father world events Though he had promised the fourteen year old prodigy he would one day ask for her hand, both have wed others and parented children before the fates align their stars when she is 33 and he is 50 so that they finally clear away the o [...]

    15. This is an historical romance set in Portugal in the late 1400s and early 1500s It is fairly well written, and I actually enjoyed reading it, but it lacks much complexity and does not have quite as much historical detail as I generally like to encounter in historical fiction.
