U-Boats Passing: A Saga of War at Sea (Vol. 2) on because for me almost immediately after I noticed that she was a selfish girl she matured 2013 reviewThis was the second time I read this book I re read it because I have the second book in the trilogy to read and I couldn t remember all the nuancesf this story I m glad I took the time to re read this book I enjoyed it much the second time and even changed my rating from a 3 to a 4 This is a typical historical romance you have a headstrong girl a commoner who is being denied his birthrite as a Lord and even a cute little sidekick in the form Achtung Schweinehund!: A Boy's Own Story of Imaginary Combat of a Monkey I love stories with Monkeys in them They always lend a little humor to the story and I was not disappointed in this book Once again there was sarcastic humor that I enjoyed and I enjoyed the relationship between Piers Mallory and Alys Foxe I feel the relationship moved along at a believable pace that the love between the two characters didn t come too easyr too difficult I like the simplicity in the story so that you could focus Dugout: The Zombie Steals Home on Alys and Piers I also enjoyed meeting Ira and I like the fact that he wasn t Alys biggest fan and again I felt their relationship evolved at good pace I look forward to reading the next installment in this trilogy which deals with anotherf the three Foxe sisters What I LikedI liked the humor in this book I liked how we saw Alys row up before ur eyes and take wnership f her actions and start to act ut f knowledge and strength instead f childishness and selfishnessWhat I DislikedI disliked how the author in a couple tiny spots eluded to magic Screwball Television: Critical Perspectives on Gilmore Girls or witchcraft I don t think that was developed really well and probably should have been leftut Ya Gotta Believe!: My Roller-Coaster Life as a Screwball Pitcher and Part-Time father, and My Hope-Filled Fight Against Brain Cancer of the book as it didn t add anything I also disliked how the book is a cliffhanger If you want to know the storyf why the king and Sybilla are having a battle Night's Pawn of wills you have to readn Perhaps as I read Firing the First Elder (Pioneers in the Pulpit Book 2) on I will findut about this elusive magic but I don t think that will change how I feel about its presentation in this book2011 reviewA little slow in the beginning but then I got caught up in the story f a young woman finding herself and her love n a journey to right wrongs done to all I will definitely read the next book in the series to find ut what happens next More like 15 stars but I thought the verall rating way The Secret Child overestimated and thether comments too lenient with this bookI cannot say it is poorly written but neither is it nicely so Some sentences ringed Japanese Schoolgirl Inferno: Tokyo Teen Fashion Subculture Handbook outf time to me I never liked ANY f the characters and could not care for them Alys is a childish brat who finally realizes how she s been and hopefully will redeem herself in the future after the ending f the book however s Nowhere in medieval England are.

Over Halfway Through Ithalfway through it honestly I m 190 pages in and the nly thing that s happened is that Alys and Piers are STILL RUNNING AWAY FROM HOME verit My major beef with this story was the use f the F word Now I have no problem with using that word myself but then again I don t live in 1276 where I can Hitler's Northern War: The Luftwaffe's Ill-Fated Campaign, 1940-1945 only imagine such a word wasn t used According to Wikipedia the first known usagef this curse was in 1475 200 years after this story took place The veruse f this word by the hero and I use that word loosely just seemed wrong and inconsistent with the times Since superstition was alive and well in medieval times I understand the allure f the Foxe Ring and believe that true love would happen to those found together in the ring at midnight f the full moon So the fact that Alys Foxe fell in love with A Philosophy of Cinematic Art our anti hero Piers Mallory didn t surprise me What did though was Piers attitude towards Alys and her continued begging and pleading to go with her husband His continued acrimony and plainld nastiness towards Alys should have had her running back to her sister regardless The Potato Hack: Weight Loss Simplified of said sisters behavior It was 1276 after all when women just weren t safeutside the home and honestly Piers looking like a homesless bum could have been anyone intent White House Years (Henry Kissingers Memoirs on harming Alys but did she give a single thought to herwn safety Nope She clung to Piers like a darn barnacleWhen Alys found ut who Bevan s father was why did she not tell Ira Piers grandfather when he rescued her before Piers saw the King This is information that would have been invaluable to Piers in his time f need So why did someone who loved him to pieces not turn Scab over this vital information especially since she was leaving with her sister I just didn t understand this behavior towards someone she l v e dNow I do In a World Created by a Drunken God own thether books in this series but honestly I hated Sybilla and can t imagine enjoying her story and the Indo No Kao other sister is so preachy and God fearing and headed to a nunnery that I can t even imagine reading her story never mind enjoying it So this being the best sisterf the lot and her story was just so so I won t be continuing this series It s a shame since I ve loved every ther Heather Grothaus book I ve read I ll definitely read this author again just not this series The story takes place in England in 1276 I think the story nly spans about a month Giant Peach Yodel or so The heroine is eighteen yearld Alys Foxe She s got pale blond hair and brown eyes She s the youngest Sinai and Zion of three sisters Her parents are deceased and herlder sister Sybilla runs everything Alys runs away because Sybilla is making her marry someone whom she doesn t want to marryThe hero is thirty year ld Piers Mallory He s poor and n a mission to claim his birthright from the King He comes across Alys sleeping at something called Foxe Ring It s a stone ring utside that is supposedly where you go to meet your future spouse Alys becomes convinced that they re now husband and wife I found that to be very annoying At the beginning Alys is given a monkey whom she names Layla The vicious monkey is n almost every page f the story I didn t care for that at all That too was very annoying I don t believe a romance book should feature a pet The monkey was very distracting and pointless really Piers suffers a terrible attack by two people who are very close to him I like those characters because I feel all books even romance need a villian r two I think they add to any story I don t think the Iniquity ones in this story were given enough time to develop their characters There wasn t enough character development with both hero and heroine either Piers lost his mother when he was just six We don t really know anythingf his life before he met the heroine Same goes with Alys What was her life like especially with no parents We learned nothing about their pastsAlmost from the start she claimed she loved Piers and not long after he claimed he loved her too That was way too rushed came too fast They don t really even know each ther They were sort f thrown together and they didn t have anyone but.
