This Kregel Blog Tour book, Death Be Not Proud, is the second story in The Secret of the Journal books, and follows Mortal Fire.  In Death Be Not Proud, the main character, Emma, a Cambridge history lecturer, physically recovers from an attack which occurred in the first book.  As she deals with overprotective parents and memories, she realizes that she still needs to examine a journal she was trying to understand if she wants to find out more about the man she realizes she loves, Matthew Lynes. This love story has plenty of twists and turns.  By the end of the book a huge secret is also revealed that makes Emma think about what she will endure for true love.  This is a well-written book with I interesting and secretive characters.  If you're into historical fiction and love stories you'll want to put this on your reading list!

I have to say that the story was good, but if you're not into supernatural types of themes you might not care for this one.  I didn't mind it, but there is an element to the story line which I hadn't expected.  The author wove something unique into this story which adds an interesting twist.  I'm not going to give it away though.  You'll have to read it on your own. (wink!)
