I've always loved fairy tales, but I was unfamiliar with the story that inspired Dickerson's 3rd novel in the Medieval Fairy Tale series. A noble lady becomes a goose girl and must find a way to win her duke - if only she can save his life first! It may come as a surprise that this book is actually an adult fiction novel, but once you get reading, the fairy tale roots become inconsequential as the characters and plot grow. Dickerson's way with words, her dedication to honoring historical and literary accuracies, and her gentle interweaving of faith into these novels make them a hit for me. In The Noble Servant, we are reconnected to Magdalen, a charming character who was easy to love in the 2nd book of the series. Magdalen finds herself in a precarious and life-threatening position as a servant in the house of her would-be husband, the duke of Wolfberg (whom she met at The Beautiful Pretender's ball). The only problem is, no one but Magdalen realizes that the real duke is missing. With the help of a handsome shepherd, she tries to uncover the dangerous and complicated plot that is brewing in the halls of the castle. Will she find love in the process?

I am a big fan of Melanie Dickerson and I always enjoy her books! This book was a little slow at the beginning but it picked up later on and I was really immersed. I love how it connects with other characters and the time period of the story. Definitely a fun book!

Personally, I prefer Melanie Dickerson's books on the Princesses a bit more, but I guess this book was okay. The protagonist is threatened with the sake of lives of others, and is caught up in a "mutiny." Unable to reach assistance, she becomes a servant to her own and tries to figure out what could happen next. However, I did not personally like the personality of Magdalen. She seemed too simpleminded at times and acted as if she had no spine. Some may say she is compassionate, but I just think she was meek and the author overdid her "softness". The Duke was interesting to read about, but overall this is not one of my favourites.

Loved this story!!! Would recommend it to anyone who loves medieval romance with adventure!! I loved that the two main characters both had their flaws but were able to change and fall in love.
