BOOK ONLINE The Uncrowned ueen A Novel AUTHOR Posie Graeme–Evans –

Well as her son s The action becomes swift and asy to follow but still seems a little far fetched and unlikelyI do have to hand it to Graeme Evans though the O Testamento ending is very very satisfying As a long time reader that seems to be the biggest problem Incounter 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 Gangbang Slut ending because it wasn t the predictable perfect one but it was annding that was realistic and that made sense I wasn t One Con Glory even sure if I liked it at first but it s a massive improvement on thendings of The Innocent and The Exiled and proved that this isn t just a frivolous little historical romance series written for Defying Shadows (Rising Shadows escapist purposesEven though it isn t the best historical romancefiction out there Posie Graeme Evans Anne trilogy and The Uncrowned ueen are lovely books that were obviously written with love and are purenjoyment I The Great Orange Leonard Scandal (Tall Tales Series; 4) eagerly await future novels from this talented author Read 8507 81207The Uncrowned ueen is the last book in the Anne de Bohun trilogy following The Innocent and The Exiled Lady Anne assists her lover Edward IV in regaining his crown dodges witch hunts andndlessly flip flops between choosing duty or love all without mussing her lovely se Called The Beloved in the UK this is the last 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 life I wasn t too sure about the series when I read the first book as I thought it took far too long 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 Tangled Webs (The Black Jewels, 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 anntire chapter around it I do recommend this series if you like saga type books or very detailed stories but for me I got too impatient for it to finish and resolve itself I really A Fairly Honourable Defeat enjoyed the first two books of this trilogy but The Uncrowned ueen was justboring And repetitive And boring And repetitive Honestly I m not sure what happened The Innocent The Exiled were both laced with a fair bit of historical background but adhering to FACTStm wasn t the ultimate focus of those plots only fitting given that there wasn t much wiggle room without tossing history to the wind But hey it s a fictional trilogy Bending history is allowedExcept this book lost the joyful ignorance that made the others fun to read Rather The Uncrowned ueen was a plodding recount of Edward s uest to regain the throne mostly who was or wasn t interested in supporting him why they took that stand interspersed with random moments featuring Anne or Elizabeth Wydeville but neglecting other personalities that had hitherto been important to the story arc All the characters were passionless flat nevermind the token sexy times with less than distinctive scenes that gave them absolutely nothing to do Did I mention the short chapters Everything switches to another character scene after 4 6 pages of text which would be irksomenough by itself but THE OTHER BOOKS ARE NOT WRITTEN THIS WAY Why was this one hammered out with such an unnatural flow It reduced what little plot there was to a scatter shot collage of vignettesSorry but this was a fail ven with a couple halfhearted attempts at recapturing the WTFery from those first two books It just wasn t nough spark after being bludgeoned with drab political yapping a love story that had already reached a comfortable conclusion at the Elisabeth Shue 135 Success Facts - Everything You Need to Know about Elisabeth Shue end of Book 2 In short this book is totally unnecessary The Uncrowned ueen is 450 pages of needless paddingwhich I shall henceforth ignore As far as I m concerned the Anne de Bohun saga is a duology not a trilog. S a child to protect and an inheritance to defend Can she let her love for Edward threatenverything she has Or will she need his help to protect her from the powerful The Man Without a Face enemy who means to destroy her Boasting anxtraordinary heroine and intense intersecting plots The Uncrowned ueen is a dazzling and satisfying finale to Anne de Bohun's incredible story.

I think this is the weakest of the series It took too long for things to get going and I was bored for much of the first half of the book I nded up liking the nding of the book and series I was not too fond of the first two in this trilogy however I attempted the third book It was honestly not an Gone (Gone, 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 he loves her but he also says that to his wife other women and continues to dally in his own life only calling on Anne after he lost his throne How is that a love story The portrayal of the ueen also irks me why is she thenemy because she is angry at Anne for sleeping with her husband and bearing his illegitimate child Never in my life did I think something like this could be categorized a romancehistorical fiction love story There is a lesson here ladies if you don t appreciate the home wrecker sleeping with your husband and compromising your role as his wifeueen you are an Threads Of The Shroud evil woman Yea right 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 provided were very disappointing Some of these inaccuracies probably wouldn t bother someone who isn t as familiar with English history but for someone like myself the use of your majesty drove me up the wall The term your majesty was not used until Henry VIII several monarchs later I find myself always wondering why people feel the need to fluff history that is already rich in drama and super interesting I love historical fictions and I understand the need to make up some stuff and characters to fill in the blanks but there is so much to work with during this time period Have youver met someone who you think is pretty fine during that crucial first meeting But then you know there s other stuff to do in life so you don t really get back to them right away You don t forget them All Seated on the Ground entirely but there s that hazy aura around them of good feelings Yet when you reconnect you wonder just What The Fuck you thought was so good in the first placeUm yeahThe first book of this trilogy The Innocent was a real fun read The heroine was Mary Sueish to thextreme royal birth hocus pocus powers supah bootiful and lust inducing in Untitled. every male around her but she didn t really bug me because the story had a great trashylement and there were a lot of characters and situations to get acuainted withBook 2 The Exiled was a bit of a disappointment Mary Sue Anne didn t really do much besides be a brilliant businesswoman in Brussels and dodge long distance death attempts by Elizabeth Woodville A Dane showed up as potential love interest but nothing really went anywhere For a Timeless Love For All Time I didn t really give two craps about Anne and Edward Wiring ever meeting up againI picked up Book 3 after a very long break from the previous book and from veryarly on my mood rarely variedEven now with barely an hour passed since finishing it I couldn t give you a plot There wasn t much of anything Historical Against All Odds events were followed though Boring onesThe author writes descriptively but making it actually interesting waslusive The plot was mainly a series of perils for Anne to avoid or Jingling Daddys Bells BDSM Menage extricate herself from usually reuiring some form of rescue by her band of peeps The danger and action and close calls weren t really all that suspenseful and I got annoyed than anythinglseEdward should have been interesting After all he s got his Twu Wuv and a ueen who is popping out the progeny left and right a gorgeous chick that he willfully fucked up his reign to possess because he s a spoiled little manwhore There should have been a bit of conflict there but since Elizabeth was portrayed or less as a jealous harpy the reader apparently wasn t supposed to sympathize with the desperate woman and instead wait with bated breath for The DOS every time Anne and Edward shared the same oxygen which they did with fatuous regularityThe one part I did like was the one thing that a ruthlessditor would have cut out ntirely Louis XI Even though he was written as of a superstitious hypochondriac than a Spider King he at least had some pizzazz and livened up a story that The thrilling climax to the trilogy that began with The Innocent and The Exiled brings Posie Graeme Evans's bittersweet story of two lovers divided by the throne of England to its dramatic conclusion As England tears itself apart in the War of the Roses Anne de Bohun lives far from the intrigues of cities and courts Once King Edward IV's mistress Anne
