FREE DOWNLOAD The Lion's CourtshipE sure we are also aware that there are so many circumstances and effects of every decision made that it is so hard to make snap judgements Anyways i really liked the story and it s originality Anna Kronberg and Garret match well together at the heighten of Victorian living Author Annelie Wendeberg competently conveys the period and locale as a backdrop to an London impoverished neighborhood of subpar sanitary conditions The trepidation of Anna To Keep Her Distance keep her distance Garret because of a secret she is keeping while at the same time finding herself drawn to him works well through the novel The subplot
Of The Novel Is Thethe novel is the characters investigation into the murder of a prostitute in the vein of Jack the Ripper For a contemporary written novel Wendeberg s tone matches nicely with the proper Victorian classics but updated with a pacing in line with expectations of readers that enjoy murder mysteries I did not know that this was a prelude book to a series of AnnaAnton Kronberg stories Hence when I read the excerpt at the end of the book I found it jarring to read AnnaAnton have a dueling dialogue with Sherlock Holmes While during the novel proper I believed Anna s intellectual prowess I found it suspect to pit her against Holmes That is only my initial thoughts from reading a few pages though so don t hold that much weight to my observations on that point The novel proper was uite good in comparison ExcellentThis made such a refreshing change from the modern novels I usually read It s well written carefully researched and utterly believable Victorian London was a dark forbidding place and the author has recreated it in this story This has the makings of a terrific series I love this author I read all the 12986 series1 Cut2 Fog3 Ice4 Vow5 War coming soonIt was so real so intense Micka is a very emotional character who tastes words She is oung living in a society after a mysterious disease kills 10 billion people It takes place in the future in a dystopian communityAfter I read all the four books in this series I kept putting off The Lion s Courtship thinking it was such a different genre than I am used to reading Finally I began The Lion s Courtship book 1 in the series and could not put it down I then proceeded to read the second and third books It was the second book that introduced us to Sherlock Holmes who is not the main character Anna Kronberg is and she lives in 1890 s when women were not accepted into medical schools She lives in London in a slum helping the ravaged poor in her area by night serving as a medical doctor by day at a London hospital dressed. Sure it stays that way When the Irish thief Garret O’Hare breaks into her home in the dead of the night bleeding profusely from a gunshot wound and collapsing on her bed her life begins to take a deadly DNF at 47% She performs simple surgeries sometimes amputations She helps reluctant children out of their mothers wombs cleans and stitches up cuts When in a few months the summer arrives and heats up people s heads and makes them go wild about trifles her supply of bandages disinfectant and opium will melt away in but a few days Normally I wouldn t write a review for a book I didn t finish but this one is different Even though I decided not to go on I still think this is a pretty decent story at least as far as this is a pretty decent story at least as far as read Annelie Wendeberg isn t only able to capture Victorian London atmospherically but also
Seems To Have Done Herto have done her when it comes to the medical procedures the protagonist Anna Kronberg performs view spoileran abortion for example hide spoiler 375 stars I liked the no nonsense writing in this book I actually liked the whole writing style overall It wasn t perfect but I liked the way the author tells the story It was hard to really love this book because it s actually a little depressing because of the setting and real life circumstances and portrayal of poverty in past London The author did a good job at portraying what it was really like without sugar coating so that was a good thing but hard to read none the less I m pretty sensitive so this isn t anything against the book really I know it s a good thing to be reminded of the hardships people have faced and still do to this day But it s still a little hard to read about But the best thing about the story was Anna and Garrett I love them both a lot Garrett is so incredibly sweet and loving I love his insecurities and HIS LOVE FOR ANNA HE IS JUST AN EXCELLENT love for Anna He is just an excellent Anna is pretty awesome too She isn t some uptight prissy annoying female She is tough and gritty She doesn t dance around issues or situations she faces no matter how horrible and the story benefits from her no nonsense personality and keeps the story flowing at a good pace I love awesome female leads She is tough but also caring She is able to suppress emotion when a job needs to be done but she s also kind and giving And she does have emotions but she doesn t let them limit her or control her most of the time And I love their love story It s sweet and real and slow building They are two flawed characters that come to genuinely enjoy the other and care for each other The other thing I like about this book is that it reminds ou that there is rarely only right and wrong Or black and white There is so much gray area surrounding morals It s important to remember that even though we like to think there is right or wrong we have to mak. London 1885 Anna Kronberg hides in the city’s most notorious slum offering medical treatment to prostitutes beggars and criminals of all kinds None of her neighbours knows her true identity and she makes.
