My rating: 1 of 5 stars
This book is shelved under DNF. I found it annoying with an overall lack of development and originality. The blend of historical and current colloquialisms, odd word choices… Why set it in the 1500’s but then use current day phrases and such? The writing felt like a computerized thesaurus was issued the command to randomly select alternate words. The characters lacked development, at least as far as I was able to read, which was the third? kidnapping. I would only recommend this read if you enjoy reads that require 100% suspension of disbelief and absolutely no logical thinking. While this was certainly not for me, I feel there will be a small audience that absolutely loves it. I received an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion and review, which may or may not mirror your own.
