Product description

Book Description

The final novel in The Spoils of Time trilogy, sequel to bestsellers NO ANGEL and SOMETHING DANGEROUS.

Synopsis

The Second World War is over, peace has been declared - but the ravages remain and the Lytton family must confront the future and themselves. Kit Lytton, blinded in his early twenties in service for the RAF, is coming to terms with the fact that his father is not Oliver Lytton, as he thought, but the famous children's author Sebastian Brooke. His sense of betrayal is immense, but worse is the discovery that the woman he loves is his sister. Barty Miller is now in the curious position of owning a majority share of Lyttons, the publishing house belonging to the family that brought her up. Now rich and powerful, though alone, Barty is far from the cowed slum child rescued by Celia Lytton years before. But how will she act now towards the family who always made her feel she did not belong? And what secrets in the Lytton past remain to be discovered...?

This book is an absolute must for Vincenzi fans. The 3rd and final installment in the Lytton story, following on from No Angel and Something Dangerous. If you have read these two, I hardly think you would need prompting to read Into Temptation. I think it is actually the best of the three, you really care about the characters and the twists in the story make it really unputdownable. I only discovered Penny Vincenzi last year and have now read all of her books so will be quite bereft until the next! Get writing Penny!

The final book in the Spoils of Time trilogy is good, wrapping up loose ends and introducing some new characters, including the complicated, greedy Charlie Patterson and the highly annoying Keir Brown. In my opinion though, there is too much of the Barty/Charlie storyline and not enough concentration on the London Lyttons; which is fair enough I suppose as Ms Vincenzi obviously wants to focus on the next generation. But the whole Charlie story is long-winded, with an unecessarily complicated background, and there are also some other annoying aspects; including Kit's childish attitude to Celia's marriage and Adele's frankly tiresome continuing depression over the events in Book 2. One other (final) thing that slightly annoyed me was the heavy hinting that went on; a lot of her books are like this and it always works very well; however it would have been interesting to know, for example, whether Celia and Sebastian were continuing their affair in this book, and when exactly they stopped.

However, these characters--even the annoying ones--are still compelling, and since we've been with them since the beginning it is still interesting finding out what happens.

The best bit of the book is the discovery of Celia's personal diaries, kept since the early 1900s and full of intruiging nuggets of information. Unfortunately, little of the diary entries are revealed and those that are are quite cryptic (one particularly interesting refernce to a highly personal, intimate entrance that mortified Giles comes to mind).

The ending is left open too, which is actually a good idea and works well. I did enjoy the book and of course, if you've read the other two (which are excellent) you'll read this anyway.

I thought it couldn't get any better! I've been hooked on this trilogy since being given 'No Angel', and it gets better with every book! Penny Vincenzi has that rare gift of writing a book so good you don't want to stop reading it - it was very difficult to put it down. The story was brilliant, with unexpected twists and one of the first books that has ever made me laugh out loud and actually burst into tears! If you've never read these, don't be put off by the thickness of the books as I initially was - it really is worth it! It's just a shame that there won't be any more in this series. Guess I'll have to try the others by her, and hope they're half as good!

Another wonderful, compelling book from Penny Vincenzi. All her characters feel like real people and the things that happen to them makes a great story. I would have given this book 10 stars if possible. I have loved all three books in this trilogy. If I had to choose then Number 2 was my favourite. Penny Vincenzi is one of the best authors of this type of novel if not the best.

The Spoils of Time are a great set of books, from the first one to the last one they capture your imagination. I found that this book round off everything nicely, their is a mixture of old characters and new ones, which is done really well. I love all Penny Vincenzi's books are would recommended them to everyone. Enjoy!

I have to say I have loved this trilogy and I think that Into Temptation lives up to the other two books in the trilogy. I am really sad to be leaving the Lytton, Miller and Brooks families and hope that I will soon be able to find another set of books that will engross and entertain me as much as this wonderful trilogy has.

It is past midnight and I should be getting some sleep but I just had to review this book for all you PV fans out there as I have just spent the last 3 hours finishing this book. As other reviewers have commented (assuming you have read the first two parts of this trilogy) the characters have been with you for so long that you can't help but be drawn in, especially given that Penny Vincenzi is such a great storyteller and everything falls into place so neatly and effortlessly in her novels. It is not without its flaws: the character list has some omissions that make it hard to remember who is who at times, there is a dip in the book midway where it gets slightly boring (but in true PV form, it recovers quickly) and the ending is a little disappointing given the action packed final quarter of the book - it feels a bit rushed. Nevertheless, I will only deduct a star for these flaws, as writing a great book that is almost as long as War and Peace is no mean feat, and anyone who has read the first two books in the trilogy should definitely read this. It is almost as good as the first one (which was really excellent) and better than the second. I, for one, remain a big Vincenzi fan!

This is the third in the trilogy of The Spoils of Time and this was one of the best by one my favourite writers Penny Vincenzi.
In this latest series everything is winding up as Lady Celia Lytton the family matriarch looks to settling down to a quieter life and retirement.
This wonderful family drama centres mostly on Barty Miller, adopted by Lady Celia as a girl. Barty Miller is now heading her own company in the New York and is wealthier than all the Lyttons, which must put some stress on all concerned members of that family as she is capable of calling all the shots. But will she? How will she finally treat this family that have taken her from the slums? Will she be a hard business women or will she do the right thing for Celia sake? You find out as you dig into this tale as old secrets are revealed, past secrets that will certainly affect their future in a serious way.
