The Uncrowned ueen A Novel [ Download ] author Posie Graeme-Evans

Dward 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 t 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 specifically that actually DID happen so why make up so much unnecessary BS I found the main character annoying and the romance between her and Edward predictable and corny Not to mention if you re going to write about one of Edward IV s mistresses wouldn t you consider writing it on his most well known mistress Elizabeth Shore Honestly I felt Edward s little love affair with Anne was distracting from the real vents that were taking place and made him seem kind of fickle and OBaby easily led I also didn t like the portrayal of Elizabeth Woodville at all Lastly this book wasxtremely hard to follow Everything seemed scattered and thoughts and ideas were NOT developed properly It was hard to know who s POV I was reading because it would change from one characters POV to another s without Nerds even a paragraph breakI would give this book 25 stars if I had the option After gobbling up The Innocent and The Exiled I wasxciting to see how the Anne trilogy concluded in Posie Graeme Evans The Uncrowned ueenThis volume in the series is considerably longer than its previous installments but worth it The story begins shortly after the Zack (Areion Fury MC end of The Exiled Anne is getting back to her lonely life inxile when news of King Edward s disposal and King Henry VI s nominal return to power reaches her It seems that the historical British civil war The War of the Roses has begunPacked to the brim with political intrigue power games and romance The Uncrowned ueen has considerably plot than its predecessors and focuses on power games and politics than on the forbidden romance between Anne and King Edward Even on power games and politics than on the forbidden romance between Anne and King Edward though found this to be a much welcome fresh departure from the other novels it probably won t be what most readers of the series Shadow on the Crown (The Emma of Normandy Trilogy, expect While the Anne trilogy at its heart is a historical romance The Uncrowned ueen leans much heavily toward historical fiction with a massive cutback on romanceThe first 200 pages of this book however are incredibly as well as surprisingly slow I was particularly amazed at the lack of word smithing magic that was such a wonderful treat in the previous novels Even though the prose in The Uncrowned ueen is stilllegant and detailed it just doesn t seem as natural to me as the other Books Which Made Me which made me like I was missing out a little bit This was particularly ContamiNation evident during the dry section of the book making it nearly impossible to plow throughAfter the first section of.

The book though things really start to Pick Up Anne Returns To England With up Anne returns to England with son Edward to try and make a new life for themselves once King Edward is restored to the throne Of course it s never that asy A ghost from the past returns to accuse Anne of witchcraft and key figures learn about the truth of Anne s lineageas 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 nding is very very satisfying As a long time reader that seems to be the biggest problem I Losing My Virginity and Other Dumb Ideas encounter 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 thending because it wasn t the predictable perfect one but it was an nding that was Realistic And That Made and that made I wasn t ven sure if I liked it at first but it s a massive improvement on the Indecent... Exposure (Indecent, endings of The Innocent and The Exiled and proved that this isn t just a frivolous little historical romance series written forscapist 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 pure Not Without a Fight enjoyment Iagerly await future novels from this talented author I really Garden Bouquets and Beyond 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 The Unseen Wonder even with a couple halfhearted attempts at recapturing the WTFery from those first two books It just wasn tnough spark after being bludgeoned with drab political yapping a love story that had already reached a comfortable conclusion at the The Management Bible 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 trilogy 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 Zu schnell 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 re.
