To be clear there wasn’t really anything that I actually liked about this book I just don’t like rating books 1 star unless I absolutely abhor them I absolutely hated the romance which is unfortunate considering the fact that this is essentially a romance It was the most instalovey of any instalove that I have read or seen in a long time they don’t even have a real conversation before the “fall in love” Their entire relationship was based on the fact that they thought the other one was good looking and as a result I felt like the characters had no depth Even though Delia thought that Geoffrey was kind she probably mentioned that like once I also thought that Delia was extremely gullible she’s clearly been warned about s like Elliot and even though warning signs go off in her head every time she sees him she doesn’t exactly do anything until it’s reached an extreme situation I also felt like I was being told a lot of things especially when it came to the king For example we were told that the king was “powerless” but in that case he wouldn’t have been able to view spoiler absolve Delia’s brothers of the charges against them hide spoiler Read É PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Í Melanie Dickerson

Thank you Thomas Nelson Publishing NetGalley and Melanie Dickerson for the opportunity to read this bookI have a weakness for retellings I really enjoyed Melanie Dickerson’s previous fairytale series Hagenheim Court of Swans by Melanie Dickerson is the first book in the Dericott Tales and is a retelling of the Wild Swans fairytale Delia is the daughter of an earl who dies and leaves her in the mercy of her wicked stepmother However when all her brothers are arrested for treason she must find a way to save them The new king is only fourteen years old and is counseled by those who have their own selfish interests at heart With the help of a knight named Sir Geoffrey they will need to find evidence to save her brothers from executionMy favorites of Melanie Dickerson’s has to be The Healer’s Apprentice The Merchant’s Daughter and The Captive Maiden In each of these tales the characters capture the reader’s attention and have something to give to the story Deliais completely bland She does nothing except uestion why these bad things happen to her family I actually enjoyed all the other characters I can’t wait to see what happens to the eldest brother Edwin I hope he will get his own storyThe pacing did leave something to be desired The brothers are imprisoned most of the book and not much really happens with the investigation until over halfway through the book Although the historical detail is phenomenal Having been to London I believe Melanie Dickerson captured London of the 1300s uite perfectlyWhile this book did uite capture me I have high hopes for the second novel in this series I rate it 3 out of 5 stars
