However, when in the first few chapters your main female protagonist is forcibly kissed by her suitor whom she claims she doesn't want pursuing her and she's gasping and whatever, then that reads more like a bodice-ripper than pro-women.
Because clearly, she just doesn't know how amazing men are and has to be shown how much she wants love. I couldn't continue.
Aug 02, Annika Paxman rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this book! However, here is my disclaimer readers beware Jan 31, Cheap and Lazy rated it it was amazing Shelves: romance , regency-ish , not-standalone , magic , dark.
Nice, long historical romance with a bit of magic. I enjoyed the authors writing style, though her imagination is what impressed me.
The dialog inner and outer occasionally wanders into anachronistic. But thats a small niggle in a great romance with enough non-romance plot to satisfy me and Im fussy about that.
The cast is fairly large, the premise somewhat complex, and the story took several dark turns which I did not enjoy as they were vivid and heartbreaking compared to most Nice, long historical romance with a bit of magic.
The cast is fairly large, the premise somewhat complex, and the story took several dark turns which I did not enjoy as they were vivid and heartbreaking compared to most romances--where this book ought to be shelved.
Anyway, as to the characters, Renard is an excellent hero, larger than life, sexy, powerful, insistent, but with remarkable gentleness and humor.
Ariane is a believable heroine in her circumstances: vulnerable, fallible, confused. She gains strength as she is tested throughout the book.
The personalities of her two sisters, Gabriella and Miriam, come through just as clearly, as do other key characters, including the Dark Queen. I expect to read more about everyone in the following books of the series.
Aug 26, Margaret rated it it was ok. I have very mixed reactions to this book. On the positive side, I did basically like and could mostly relate to the main character, Ariane.
She's grieving, has two sisters depending on her, and she deeply feels her responsibilities. I even, for the most part, liked the hero and the setting I do enjoy historical settings with a bit of fantasy mixed in, at least a lot of the time.
That said, even when I could understand the reasons some of the characters did things they did, and most of the time I have very mixed reactions to this book.
I'd get sufficiently irritated that it would take me out of the story. I did finish the book, although I was tempted not to, because I liked the characters enough to want to know what happened.
I don't know if I will read any of the other books in the series or not. I might try the second one, at least, because I did like Gabrielle as a character.
But I think I'll give myself a break from this series and read a few other things first. Mar 06, Meredith rated it it was ok.
I actually found this book at the 99 cent store, so that kind of says a little something about the quality overall.
Unfortunately, I couldn't really finish the book because the chapter I ended off on was really just filler and I got bored quickly.
It was an alright book in my opinion but it crammed way more romance in than I was initially expecting, most of it being either forced, predictable or unhealthy.
I also feel like some of the smut parts were just there for shock factor and served no I actually found this book at the 99 cent store, so that kind of says a little something about the quality overall.
I also feel like some of the smut parts were just there for shock factor and served no purpose towards development or the plot as a whole. I think the only thing that kept me invested for the most part, anyway was the fantastical element.
Other than that the writing wasn't the best and from what I've heard the book isn't very historically accurate I can't really give my opinion on this matter since I know virtually nothing about Renaissance France.
Heck, I didn't even know Catherine de' Medici was a real person until I read some of the reviews! Overall I'd just give a solid two stars since I liked the book just a smidge, but not enough to bump it up to a three.
This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I picked up this book because it touches on genres I enjoy: fantasy, magic, herbalism, as well as history.
It started well enough but very quickly dissolved into such saccharine dribble that I struggled to complete the novel. How unsurprising to find that this author, despite arguing throughout that a woman does not need a man to complete her, resolves her novel with the woman needing the man.
Add in some sloppy editing a character is riding both a mare and a gelding in the same 1. Aug 06, Gretchen rated it really liked it. I love the idea of this society of "the Daughters of the Earth".
I could not put this book down I am now heavily invested in the Cheney family - I immediately ordered the next 2 books and want to hear of their future and the adventures of more Daughters of the Earth.
Feb 06, Jenny rated it really liked it Shelves: series , historical-fiction , romance. I bought this at a library sale thinking it was historical fiction.
There is some history, some fantasy and some romance. I enjoyed it very much and will be looking into the other two books in the series.
May 13, melanie added it Shelves: historical , romance , fantasy , dnf. Aug 15, Lori Winslow rated it really liked it. I enjoy reading about healing witches and not evil witch battles, and since this was mostly good witch stuff, I liked this book.
I picked this book up because of the Catherine deMedici inclusion, but I enjoyed the story itself so much, I look forward to reading the rest of the trilogy.
