Customer Review

on 29 July 2012
I'm afraid this is another miss for me on the great pendulum of hits and misses that these two trilogies have become.

It all boils down to the romance and how much you care, how much you believe it, feel it. And this just didn't do anything for me. I think my main problem was the lack of build up. It went from lust + aggravation to
"love" within the snap of my fingers with not nearly enough development to make it realistic. In fact, the pair barely spoke to one another. They avoided each other while she got up to her "pranks" (more on that in a minute), and he would also go off fighting and not mention anything about it to her. Then suddenly Bam! they're in love? Plus, the fact that he had it in mind to marry her for personal/political reasons right from the word go, also sapped all of the romance out of it.

Now onto the characterization. Flora is meant to be this great beauty but also a complete hellion, spitfire, wildcat, etc. A nightmare most men won't overlook even with her pretty face and large tocher. WHERE THE HELL WAS THIS SHOWN? I'm telling you, she got up to a couple of little tricks- using the wrong oil on his swords and salting his dinner- but apart from that she was as drippy, weepy and pathetic as any damsel in distress has ever been. I was so disappointed in this aspect. I love my feisty heroines and that's what I felt like I was being promised, and I did not get it. She's the Holyrood hellion"? Then I'm a Prima Ballerina. She didn't even complain about his leman (mistress, bit on the side)? Shyeah. Right.
