And who wouldn’t want to have Charles as a brother? I wish I could give this 3. There was no flow or even attempt to connect the side plots. But I’ve read enough Jane Austen to realize there isn’t anything the girls could do about doylee. I would have liked to see more action, but it was a good read.
But the climax itself is exciting. I felt sometimes that she was pushing too hard. But, and I’ll admit it, the romance in this one was a little more prominent.
But all of his other male students seem to resent her inclusion into the study sessions. They are in the land of the fae, Ireland, and they should dogle better. And that was not acceptable. This “Other” magic very much ties into the very fiber of what it is to be Irish and their myths and legends.
