Never, before reading this duology, have I enjoyed a romance novel. Sometimes I enjoy romances that are a subplot to a story, like in Mortal Engines, but I hate books that are mainly romance. I may have to take that back now. The reason why I hate romance is because of all the kissing and love-at-first-sight and undying-love ridiculousness. I hate it when the love interest becomes the sole reason the main character exists. There is none of that here. Helen and Sebastian complement each other per [...]
World War I was a horrible time of the year. There were a lot of lives lost and jobs taken. People were suspicious of anyone who had german origins no matter how much they helped their country. Helen was just one of the many people suffering. However, not all of them were so lucky as Helen was. Helen had a lover who was absolutely amazing. Sebastian did not care about what other people thought. He knew she was trustworthy and thats all that matters.With friends backing them up though many died i [...]
A really sweet enjoyable historical love story for teens.
Omgggg this book!!!!!!! At first i thought that it wasn't going to be that good, but then I read the first chapter and I was instantly glued to the pages. I mean its so perfect and well thought. And what really kept this book alive were all the amazing plot twists within every chapter. It will defiantly remain on my favorite list this year and the others to come!
Beautiful definitely the word I would use to describe this book if I was asked for just one.Eve Edwards certainly knows how to do duologies properly. A duology is a two book series as opposed to a trilogy with three books. Some people also call them a duet. Though that's more singing in my opinion. Of course an author can also stuff up a trilogy. The only upside with a trilogy is if you don't quite get it with the second book you have the last book to adjust all those things and go out in a bang [...]
Absolutely adored this book. Really appealed to my inner history geek. So much historicalness within it that I loved especially focused on the homefront. It was interesting seeing how the people at home suffered during the war and to really see that anti-German feeling that was bubbling away. I don't think enough of this sort of history of World War One is out there so it was brilliant to see it in this novel. Also adored the main story, finding out more about Helen and Sebastian. Just fab in ev [...]
This is the sequel to Dusk. Definitely a quiet, enjoyable read, with history and a (very PG-13) romance worked in and around the story. Though some reviewers complained about the constantly-shifting timeline and headings, I felt they lent an interest to this book that it wouldn't have otherwise had. Don't worry about the strict timeline; simply reading the narrative will tell you where you are.
The end of the story began in 'Dusk'. Generally a good addition to the genre but the style can be a bit frustrating in terms of following the timeline. I'm glad there is a resolution in this novel rather than having to wait a further year for yet another installment
