*** MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS ***
I pre-ordered this book because I loved the first book. This book is un expectedly frustrating and unbelievable. The characters I have known from the first book sound like completely different people in character and speech. Everyone seem like fools, helpless and speechless and weak, being easily led, fooled, manipulated and under the spell of one young foreign calculating woman. I couldn’t believe I was reading a book written by Philippa Gregory..!
And Ned’s story in America is completely irrelevant in this book. You can skip the entire chapters on him and will not miss a thing. I am not sure if I would want to read the next book. I’ll probably read all the reviews first and decide if it’ll be worth spending another $14.99.
