    The Siege Winter eBook ´ The Siege ePUB ì Ú MOBI wearedating.co.uk siege download, winter kindle, The Siege kindle, The Siege Winter eBookI’m not a great fan of historical fiction but I loved the Adelia Aguilar books of Ariana Franklin She avoided everything I dislike about the genre and wrote so vividly with so much fun creating characters that were real lovable and enduring And so like many other Franklin fans I’ve been eager for Ariana’s daughter Samantha Norman to finish her mother’s last novel First the disappointment for me anyway The Winter Siege is not an Adelia book being set largely in 1141 around forty years before Adelia arrives in England This England is a place of fear and bloodshed a country torn apart by civil war Henry 1 h

    The Siege Winter eBook ´ The Siege ePUB ì Ú MOBI wearedating.co.uk siege download, winter kindle, The Siege kindle, The Siege Winter eBookI loved Franklin's books but I'm sorry to say that I couldn't finish this one It adopts a contemporary tone in the dialogue especially which I found intensely irritating Characters from the 12th century say things like 'Yuck' and 'Totally' This sits oddly alongside the meticulous depiction of clothes etc of the time It's riddled with anachronisms for example a character likens opposing soldiers to apes And where would she have seen one? At the same time there is a lot of heavy handed historical exposition about the war and politics of the time I can only assume that this tone is intended to attract a younger less demanding audience which responds better to contemporary speech I commend the author for trying to carry on her mother's work but I won't be reading any

    The Siege Winter eBook ´ The Siege ePUB ì Ú MOBI wearedating.co.uk siege download, winter kindle, The Siege kindle, The Siege Winter eBook35 rounded to 4 Very readable engaging novel set in the 12th century civil war in England between Matilda and Stephen for the throne A dying abbot relates the events of the novel to a scribe The story involves a young girl Emma rescued after violation by an evil monk and left for dead by a mercenary soldier Gwil She is disguised as a boy for protection given the name Penda and the two travel together He teaches her archery and she becomes proficient Matilda joins them and they make their way to the castle of Lady Maud unwilling wife of an absolute boor Then begins a winter long siege by Stephen's forces What is the meaning of a mysterious parchment in a uill case that Gwil picks up when he finds Emma? Who is the monk and what is his importance?I didn't pick up any obvious 21st century slang but there were a few modern day idioms eg cut no ice I did wonder how much of the history was accurate except the barebones of the conflict between the two contenders for the throne I thought

    The Siege Winter eBook ´ The Siege ePUB ì Ú MOBI wearedating.co.uk siege download, winter kindle, The Siege kindle, The Siege Winter eBookIf given the choice to take it or leave it I would have to leave this one behind I love historical fiction and by that I mean full throttle historical fiction This was not that I could possibly overlook the collouial differences but the 'telling' was just too contemporary for the time period given And oh the language I don't mind gritty language but this felt so gratuitous It was a constant onslaught and it hardly even felt authentic Everyone was always so angryI need than just that Hearing it verses reading it for me anyway makes a huge difference for some reason And since I did the audio it was so much noticeableI also got the feel that this was very light on the historical fiction side as well The singular event wasn't the problem Overall I wasn't pulled into this time period I wanted to be but it just didn't work for me I know I'm in the minority with this review But I can give it 2 stars I actually liked Penda and even Gwil

She did leave us a wonderful gift however a final novel completed by her daughter Samantha Norman and it is a very good work indeedThis book is not part of the series featuring the medical examiner Adelia Aguilar but is a standalone novel in the same time period ie the mid 12th Century and also set in England During this era England was torn by a civil war between supporters of Stephen grandson of William the Conueror and his cousin the Empress Matilda for the throne of England Occupants of cathedrals as well as castles were forced to take sides One stronghold in particular the fictional Kenniford Castle is desired by both sides in this story because i
