For Things ToThings To Get things to get and I was bored for much of the first half of the book I ended up iking the ending of the book and series I really enjoyed the first 2 books in the Anne trilogy but was disappointed with the Stop Whining--and Start Winning last installment This book didn t flowike the other 2 and seemed Charlie and the Christmas Kitty like it was trying too hard to wrap up the story The story veered back and forth on side notes that had absolutely no pertinence to the story itself and could have easily been edited out everything pertaining to King Louis for instance I was also bothered by the stronger presence of the fantasy elements to the plot They never seemed to blend into the story very well and were not believable to me I found myself rolling my eyes at every mention of the Sword ueen Iove fantasy and would have normally been fine with this sort of theme but it just didn t seem to fit in with the story Read 8507 81207The Uncrowned ueen is the Il sale della vita last book in the Anne de Bohun trilogy following The Innocent and The Exiled Lad I was not too fond of the first two in this trilogy however I attempted the third book It was honestly not an enjoyable read and I could not finish it Overall after 3 books there was no impact or connection with the characters or plot Anne seemed to be the other woman who kept falling for Edwards crap Yes he says heoves her but he also says that to his wife other women and continues to dally in his own My Favorite Things life only calling on Anne after heost his throne How is that a ove story The portrayal of the ueen also irks me why is she the enemy because she is angry at Anne for sleeping with her husband and bearing his illegitimate child Never in my ife did I think something The Nine of Us like this could be categorized a romancehistorical fictionove story There is a esson here adies if you don t appreciate the home wrecker sleeping with your husband and compromising your role as his wifeueen you are an evil woman Yea right The heroine of this series doesn t seem to have existed in history Jane Shore was actually the most famous mistress of Edward IV As a character Anne De Bohun appears to have nine ives as she escapes again and again from people who wish to be rid of her mainly Edward IV s wife and ueen Although Anne bears Edward IV s son she consistently resists becoming his mistress and attempts to ead her own The Perils of Pursuing a Prince (Desperate Debutantes, lifeJust as Edward succeeds in changing her mind something happens to make her set in her resolve toive separate from him In spite of her The Barracks Thief and Selected Stories love and her heartbreak the series does end happily but with Edward and Anne together This series must be read in seuence and I m only sorry it wasn t published as a single book It would have been as thick as Les Miserables and maybe the publishers thought that would scare away readers in our fast busyives todayOn the whole I Becca and the Prisoners Cross (The Copernicus Legacy liked Posie Graeme Evans fourth book The Dressmaker better than Iiked this seriesI am The Commodore (Aubrey/Maturin, looking forward to her next book Called The Beloved in the UK this is theast in the trilogy about Anne de Bohun a fictional character who is the mistress of King Edward IV The series takes place during the War of the Roses when the crown of England was much contested It was an interesting time period not one I knew much about and the book was well researched but I never generated that much sympathy for the characters I kept thinking Anne just get on with your Dare Mighty Things life I wasn t too sure about the series when I read the first book as I thought it took far tooong to get to the main story Much of the first book deals with Anne working at the house of a merchant and there is a huge side story about the son of the house and another of the maids The story doesn t really begin until she begins working at the palace and the author takes a while to get thereI felt it was a good story but the author could ve easily condensed it down to one book There were many instances where she took a brief fact or bit of information that could ve come across in a single sentence and developed an entire chapter around it I do recommend this series if you The Texas Rangers Heiress Wife like saga type books or very detailed stories but for me I got too impatient for it to finish and resolve itself I did not read the first two books of this trilogy and after finishing the uncrowned ueen I am glad I didn tI am not a historian however I do pride myself on my knowledge of English medieval history Especially during the fifteenth century The inaccuracy of the historical points pro.

Vided were very disappointing Some of these inaccuracies probably wouldn t bother someone who isn t as familiar with English history but for someone Eternal Quest like myself the use of your majesty drove me up the wall The term your majesty was not used until Henry VIII several monarchsater I find myself always wondering why people feel the need to fluff history that is already rich in drama and super interesting I ove historical fictions and I understand the need to make up some stuff and characters to fill in need to make up some stuff and characters to fill in blanks but there is so much to work with during this time period specifically that actually DID happen so why make up so much unnecessary BS I found the main character annoying and the romance between her and Edward predictable and corny Not to mention if you re going to write about one of Edward IV s mistresses wouldn t you consider writing it on his most well known mistress Elizabeth Shore Honestly I felt Edward s ittle Resurrection Year love affair with Anne was distracting from the real events that were taking place and made him seem kind of fickle and easilyed I also didn t The Fire Within (Rockford Fire Department like the portrayal of Elizabeth Woodville at all Lastly this book was extremely hard to follow Everything seemed scattered and thoughts and ideas were NOT developed properly It was hard to know who s POV I was reading because it would change from one characters POV to another s without even a paragraph breakI would give this book 25 stars if I had the option After gobbling up The Innocent and The Exiled I was exciting to see how the Anne trilogy concluded in Posie Graeme Evans The Uncrowned ueenThis volume in the series is considerablyonger than its previous installments but worth it The story begins shortly after the end of The Exiled Anne is getting back to her onely ife in exile when news of King Edward s disposal and King Henry VI s nominal return to power reaches her It seems that the historical British civil war The War of the Roses has begunPacked to the brim with political intrigue power games and romance The Uncrowned ueen has considerably plot than its predecessors and focuses on power games and politics than on the forbidden romance between Anne and King Edward Even though I found this to be a much welcome fresh departure from the other novels it probably won t be what most readers of the series expect While the Anne trilogy at its heart is a historical romance The Uncrowned ueen Tame an Older Man (Harlequin American Romance, leans much heavily toward historical fiction with a massive cutback on romanceThe first 200 pages of this book however are incredibly as well as surprisingly slow I was particularly amazed at theack of word smithing magic that was such a wonderful treat in the previous novels Even though the prose in The Uncrowned ueen is still elegant and detailed it just doesn t seem as natural to me as the other books which made me feel Treacherous Is the Night (Verity Kent, like I was missing out aittle bit This was particularly evident during the dry section of the book making it nearly impossible to plow throughAfter the first section of the book though things really start to pick up Anne returns to England with her son Edward to try and make a new A Miracle, A Universe life for themselves once King Edward is restored to the throne Of course it s never that easy A ghost from the past returns to accuse Anne of witchcraft and key figuresearn about the truth of Anne s ineageas well as her son s The action becomes swift and easy to follow but still seems a ittle far fetched and unlikelyI do have to hand it to Graeme Evans though the ending is very very satisfying As a Aguecheeks Beef, Belchs Hiccup, and Other Gastronomic Interjections long time reader that seems to be the biggest problem I encounter some writers have amazing craft and imagination but simply can t complete their stories in a way that makes the reader satisfied The Uncrowned ueen completely avoided this pitfall and delivered something unexpected but perfect Romance fans will probably be unhappy about the ending because it wasn t the predictable perfect one but it was an ending that was realistic and that made sense I wasn t even sure if Iiked it at first but it s a massive improvement on the endings
