This Novel With Jumpy Narrative novel with Jumpy narrative Incomplete story eading the charge I agree that the story ine sometimes shifted a bit and I didn t have a problem with the serialized aspect as the novel was Scenes from a Writers Life lengthy enough What kind of sucked was the drawn out storyine in places where it did not need to be For instance ruminating over and over what you need to do in repetitive fashion and belaboring scenes until they are beaten to death makes for filler than actual storyDespite some much needed editing I Boy Swallows Universe liked this novel as the author crafts a main character that you constantly pull for There are many collisions in Aliya s future with not only her husband but the nobility atarge This dark cloud persists in driving the reader to root for her successes before the ax fallsGet it and see where it goes if so inclined to serialized contentYou can read all of my reviews here It s the candy not the wrapper that matters And it s the person you The Secret Of The Cemetery live with not their goodooks This book reminded me a DK Life Stories Alexander Hamilton lot of Game of thrones mixed with the tv show Reign who has a modern woman running an Count s estate There was humor political intrigue backstabbing and entertaining adventures similar to the shows above My only only issue i had with this story and its a big issue in my opinion is the jumping from perspective to perspective in the middle of a chapter without warning I really got annoyed with that especially when we were in one place one paragraph to be moved to a completely different place and a different character without warning ateast be divided by chapters or Vocabulario Figurado 2 let the reader know whats going on Because of this i give this book a 4 out of 5 stars i really enjoyed this and cannot wait for Fun writer fun storyI thought this was a time travel novel but discovered it was a fantasy The characters are very interesting both in motivation and action There s plenty of room for deviance from historical development and events because it s an earthike world but not the middle ages earthThe story moved fast and some would probably say too fast I would agree with them but in the main character s situation I would probably do the same or something similar The dangers from poor hygiene poor diet Sex, Politics, and Religion in Star Wars lack of medical knowledge and stifling of innovation are very powerful drivers for making change as uickly as feasible for the sake of survivalSince this isn t Medieval Europe the power of the guilds and the rise of the early cities doesn t have to Aliya is a medical school graduate gifted with both smarts and an athletic body Herife seems perfectuntil she finds herself in a fatal car accident Instead of dying however she wakes up in a completely different body in the middle of a half ruined castle during alternate medieval times Confused and dismayed Aliya realizes she was given a second chance in Home Remedies life so she rolls up her sleeves and gets to work on restoring the castle and her newife Aliya’s situation is confusing and challenging Reborn as Countess Lilian Earton she has to adjust to an unfamiliar world while trying to introduce everyday conveniences from the world she knows Her first goal is taking care of the collapsing estate of Earton and its inhabitants and earning to navigate a society.

"her own body "own body a car accident and her new persona whose body she possesses in the medieval setting has ost her baby I would be devastated but not AliyaLilian She is concerned about the pink colour of the walls her overweight body and her pink dressesThe book has an open ending which would not be a problem if at A Kiss To Change Her Life least something in the story has come to a conclusion Maybe Lilian meeting her estranged husband would have been a good one but no this is probably happening in book 2 I suspect that the book could be a good one if aot of unnecessary info gets scrapped The entire series can be concentrated in one volume and you probably end up with a good read Have you ever wondered what you would do if you suddenly would be transported to a place in the past while you had all your modern knowledgeIn this Russian fantasy novel medical student Aliya dies in a carcrash and then somehow wakes up in another body in another world that is very
much ike our Middle AgesThis Russian novel is a bit different At first I thought it was a storylike our Middle AgesThis Russian novel is a bit different At first I thought it was a story for highschool students but nevertheless was so attracted by the synopsis I volunteered to review The thing is that although the heroine is a medical student I think the targeted readers might be found in 18 Not that the story is steamy it is not No because of the serious way the whole situation is handledIn most timetravel stories people just blend in If there is the fact that they know than the people surrounding them then it is in that they know the future It is not so much that they would share advanced technology Here there is no knowledge of the future it is a different world not the past But Aliya now countess Lilian has a wide share of knowledge how to make things and how to cure people and she sets off to monetise that and improve her village It made me wonder what I would do and I realised my knowledge is not suitable at all in a situation ike that I am a awyerSo what to say about this novelThe writer is very apt in worldbuilding The world described sounds real Countess Lilian ives in a would with many similarities to medieval Europe You recognise the Vikings the Jews and the Arabs but the church is just different Laws are different And similarSometimes the writing style seems a bit different to me but that might be because it is a Russian novel that is translated Things Neimhaim (Neimhaim, like that can somehow show different cultures of writing styles It is not annoyingThe book really has potential to be great but seems to break off just when the stage is set for action I would advice to publish it together with part 2 I expect there is one I think it will be received better that way Lots of the better fantasy stories are heavy tomes that has the reader reading for days on end so there is no need to cut the story into different volumes Now we end up with a clever exercise how to keep yourself afloat in the Middle Ages and we see storm brewing on the horizon but the thunderclaps have not been heard yet All the action has yet to comeIt could be doneike this if this part would be for free but when you want to charge a fee I think customers might grumble because it feels ike but when you want to charge a fee I think customers might grumble because it feels ike are reading a good book and suddenly someone grabs it and takes it awayPS I really Carrying the Greeks Heir liked the fact that the heroine is a heavy setady who kicks ass I am no feather either I could not get through this book Found myself flipping pages just to read about the main character Everything else was buzzing in my ear This book does not have a pl.
