Hovering between 3 and 4 Stars
So 3.5 but I'm bumping it up to 4 because I live in hope of the next book!
I'm having trouble rating this book. I LOVE the premise...it has a bunch of my hot triggers. But the reality didn't quite measure up for me. First my e-book copy had some serious formatting problems that had me wondering and searching for missing parts of sentences. Second there were some serious historical inaccuracies that leapt out at me even though History is not my forte. Thirdly there were time-line issues that threw me out of the story, making me question what I remembered reading just a few pages before. And me being me, I had to go back and double check. Drove me crazy! But most of all, I wanted to fall in love with these characters and it just didn't happen for me. I liked them but that deep, crazy attachment that leaves me thinking about my favourite characters every time I have to put the book down, just wasn't there. It did sorta pick up near the end so I'm hoping the next book will make me love them like crazy! :)
