Catherine Coulter ↠ 5 review

review Wizard's Daughter ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Itten by a sixteenth century wizard The book is written in a baffling code that neither Grayson nor Nicholas can readBut Rosalind can easilyStrange things start happening Both Nicholas and Rosalind know it has to do with the old book and perhaps even her past particularly the song she first sang as a child The urgency builds as they realize Rosalind is the key to a centuries old mysteryCatherine Coulter The Autho. I didn t know anything about the author or any previous saga when I picked this book up at the library on CD Now that I have finished with it I am perusing the other reviews and I have to say that fellow readers who have given this 1 or 2 stars share my exact sentiments The plot could have been interesting but it didn t pick up until the last 15% of the novel The rest of it just felt aimless it would begin to become intriguing only to let me down after a paragraph or two My curiosity would piue again and once again eh It was almost painful to get through but if it were not for the fact that I drive 1 hour each day back and forth to work I wouldn t have finished it I m a captive listener who is bored with the radio

review Wizard's Daughter ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Dear ReaderWhen Ryder Sherbrooke finds a child nearly beaten to death in an alley in Eastbourne he takes her home to Brandon House She doesn't speak for six months Her first words oddly enough are a haunting song I dream of beauty and sightless nightI dream of strength and fevered mightI dream I'm not alone againBut I know of his death and her grievous sinAh and just what does this strange song mean that was seem. Coulter is a prolific and hugely popular bestselling author primarily of sensuous romances which she produces in various genres This one is a fantasy set primarily in the England of 1835 but partly in an invented fantasy world called the Pale She wasn t really on my radar to read but knowing my liking for speculative fiction my wife saw and snagged this volume at a flea market as a Christmas present for me a few years ago Recently I pulled it out of the TBR piles as a car book to read aloud to her while we re between installments of a series we both like This actually is also part of a series the Sherbrooke Brides though Barb didn t know that when she bought it But this installment at least reads perfectly well as a standalone and that s how we approached itThe Goodreads description just repeats the cover copy which the author herself wrote IMO however that cover copy was a misstep because it gives us a lot of backstory which in the text of the book is gradually disclosed for effect that effect is simply lost when you already know about it It also gives details about plot developments that most readers would prefer to discover as they occur Suffice it to say that we have an enigmatic prologue which a reference to ueen Bess pegs as set in the late 1500s where we meet shipwrecked sea captain Jared Vail who takes on an unspecified debt to a mysterious sorcerer and are also introduced to a beautiful little girl with a strange song who tells him I am your debt Leaving us with uestions than answers we then skip down to a London ballroom in 1835 where two people with secrets 18 year old Rosalind de la Fontaine and Jared s descendant Nicholas the new Earl of Mountjoy meet for the first time There s romantic attraction but there s another agenda as well and several layers of mysteryBarb by her own statement would have rated this at five stars but she experienced it in a censored version when I read aloud to her I ignore or if necessary paraphrase or note without repeating the cussing and omit the explicit sex scenes To be fair however the cussing here is of the d word sort and only occasional and the sex all takes place in marriage Coulter does endow both Nicholas and Rosalind s foster brother Grayson with a background of womanizing dalliances which is apparently supposed to establish to female readers that they re sexually desirable astute female readers might be apt to just roll their eyes At least one reviewer complained that the main characters had too much sex but given that they were newlyweds that s simply realistic My only complaint would be that the explicitness wasn t necessary it violated the couple s privacy for no real narrative purpose I admit that I did just now readskim the parts I omitted in the first reading but not with any salacious intent rather just to verify for review purposes that the couple weren t doing anything disgusting or vile just things they d prefer to be alone forMy own reaction was less gushing though I did like the book to a point Coulter does do a good job of creating multiple webs of mystery and pulling the reader s interest into them early on Her characterizations are sharp across the board not just of the two main characters and she has a dry sense of humor that several times had Barb laughing out loud though the book isn t a comedy In places it s a masterful novel of manners Jane Austen would have loved one dialogue in particular The sympathetic characters were basically likeable and the unsympathetic ones thoroughly dis likable Rosalind has spice and sand to her than the usual Victorian heroine Victoria would actually come to the throne in 1837 that may be what one reviewer was referring to when he complained that the book is anachronistic In that respect that s probably not a wholly fair criticism human nature was the same in 1835 as it is now and not all real life Victorian females were subdued milksops The Pale is a rather original fantasy world with a genuine sense of alien strangeness The ending Epilogue was also very well doneOn the negative side much of the dialogue here is unrealistic in places people would never say some of these things in real life The problem isn t so much that they re anachronistic although in 1835 servants didn t talk to employers nor total strangers to each other as frankly as some of them do here as that they re inane or unrealistic in the context as much so in 2016 as in 1835 Another major problem is that the resolution doesn t resolve a whole lot in some ways There s a great deal of use of time relativity paradoxes stopping time blurring of identity between characters in ways that doesn t make sense This might appeal to Dr Who fans but I ve never been a Whovian The sorcerer Sarimund can communicate with our world and influence events when the writer needs him to for the plot but can t when she needs him to be unable to there doesn t seem to be any other consistent law governing when he can or can t Despite the buildup the climactic showdown doesn t really involve any major challenge or difficulty in that respect it s anticlimactic One character also undergoes a significant attitude change but without any convincing explanation for itI think this was probably a passable introduction to Coulter s work at least in this genre As I said I liked it for what it is time passing entertainment But I didn t like it intensely enough that I d seek out any of her corpus

Summary Wizard's Daughter

review Wizard's Daughter ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ingly imprinted on the child's brainShe names herself Rosalind de La Fontaine since she cannot remember who she is In her first season in London in 1835 under the aegis of the Sherbrookes she meets Nicholas Vail the seventh Earl of Mountjoy newly arrived from Macau It is instant fascination on both their parts but for different reasonsWith Grayson Sherbrooke they are led to an ancient copy of a mysterious book wr. Catherine Coulter is one of those authors that if I see her name on the cover or spine of a book I m buying the book However I personally find this book disappointing in comparison to her other works and the plot itself convoluted This one was just not up to scratch The characters were shallow She was very wishy washy on some of the details The couples relationship was very rushed and there was hardly any wooing or bonding The audio book is read by Anne Flosnik I didnt care for her narration of the story and I am unsure if it is because I dont care for the story or just her narration
