Amazon transaction was good but very disappointed in this book. I have loved this author and read almost all her books. This was the last in a series, very short paperback, not a good value for the money, and just left me hanging,.with no resolutions for most of the characters. I felt like the author got tired of writing the book and decided to abruptly end the book without finishing it.
I didn’t enjoy this last book because it seemed more contrived than the first three, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It seems like the autho is weaving in fairy tales and myths into historical reality. I am also disappointed that the series just stopped. What happens to the characters from here? There is much left to tell and I do hope the author finishes the tale. Left hanging...
I've actually only begun this 4th book today. What I'm having a terrible time getting past is that book 3 took place in the year 1454. Book 4 starts off seemingly only weeks after Book 3 ended, yet the year is 1461. There is NO WAY 7 years have passed since the previous book! How could such an error be made? Someone help me understand this... Perhaps it will become more clear as I actually read the book?
I have waited for four years for this book to be published. I am personally a little disappointed with the plot of the book. I am sure that most people will be thrilled until the end of the story. What Ms Gregory chose to be a mysterious plot twist is something I already knew about from reading European myths as a child. I am looking forward to the next book. I just hope it doesn't take as long to be published.
I LOVED the first 3 books in this series, but this one is bad. I can barely get through it. It is exceedingly B.O.R.I.N.G, and the "dancing sickness" is stupid and hard to believe. Also, the writing and story seem much more childish than in the preceding books.
I enjoyed the books but as it got to the fourth, the stories got too much fantasy and boring. It escapes from the tradicional historical fiction style that Philippa Gregory has. I love her books but this one for me was somehow dissapointing. Maybe if the books were a series of 3, it would have been better. Characters were well structured but the plot was not as good.
easy and exciting read..great story..i've loved the way this author writes...though the 3 volume paperback book is really awkward to hold .probably would be better in 3 separate books but i still reccomend it..
