The Conundrum Reviews
Loving this series. Can't wait for Seamus's book!
Amazingly, these books just keep getting better. I love this couple even more than the ones in the first two books. I loved how they were both so rough and unconventional. This installment continues to add to traitor's plot started in the first book. Warning: This series needs to be read in order.
This was an okay addition to the Second Sons series. I would not recommend reading this one alone because I don't think the subplot would make much sense without the background from the previous installations. It might be unfair of me to give this one 3-stars, because it was a good book, it just did not live up to the previous two.I was so eager for Aibne to find his forever-love, because it was obvious the big, scary, scarred man was a giant marshmallow on the inside. I'm not sure Lady Eleanor was the right fit. By the end, I was able to grudgingly accept her, but she is a thoroughly unlikable heroine for most of the book. While I understand where the author was going, I think she made the heroine a little too extreme to have any realistic redemption in the short amount of time the novel took place. I will say that I appreciated the heroine's ability to apologize when she was in the wrong (well, after the beginning of the book).Some of the scenes with Aibne were just so heart-wrenching. I wish the whole book had been from his POV because I loved being inside his head and getting to know him better. The author did a fantastic job with him.I think there was a good balance of romance and intrigue in this novel, perhaps more so than the second book in the series, which was mostly focused on romance. Because the heroine's father is so intimately involved in the treason subplot, it is always present in the minds of all the characters.I definitely recommend this series to all historical romance lovers, and I'm looking forward to reading the final installment.
Pretty goodI didnt like this book as well as the last one, and it definitely needs editting for typos, but it has that same flow of the writing that makes you want to just keep reading. No dead spots and lots of adventure. I would have liked a better physical description of Aibne, also. Eleanor is not a woman I would easily befriend, like Ianthe. I woukd recommend this book and the series very highly.
Elinore and Aibne are perfect for each other. I thoroughly enjoyed their story and especially liked the quirky historical facts that were thrown into the mix. This has been an excellent series and I'm looking forward to the fourth and final book.
A wild catOf the three Second Sons books, this was definitely the wildest. There is nothing take about Aibne and Eleanor's tale. This one is a bodice ripper and much, much more. Be careful you don't spontaneously combust!
AmusingFascinating, humorous, interesting, enjoyable series. I am on to book four. Need to find who captures Seamus' heart. Time for Alice's story.
