Rezension zu "Stormswept" von Deborah Martin

Romantic, fascinating and gripping
IraWiravor 3 Jahren

Everyone who likes to read historical romance, knows that there are
many books about the Highlands and the Highlanders or England and its
Dukes and Lords and whatnots. Like Scotland, Wales has its own history
of a fight for freedom and the right to preserve their culture, but
eventhough Wales is very rarely a topic of those books. This is one of
the many things that make "Stormswept" so special.
What makes it
even more special is the fact that it is extremely well told, gripping,
shocking and romantic as well. It has an interesting plot full of
betrayal, love, second chances, mistrust, hard truths and, well, in the
end it all comes down to trust, doesn't it?

I couldn't put the
book down, I was so upset by some of the things that happened and
especially by the actions of Juliana's brothers and their ruthlessness, I
could never have imagined the length to which they went for their own
gain - even against their own sister. Oh, and of course I was also
worried for Juliana seeing that Rhys was so set on revenge when he
thought that she had betrayed him and had condemned him to six long
years in hell.

Once more a book where I was also furious because
of the power the men had over the women and the few chances women had to
create their own life. In this case it is also about the English
against the Welsh and about the restrictions against the Welsh and their
culture.

Apart from the story that I really loved (and reread
more than once since I've read it the first time) I enjoyed the view on
Wales and its history, I loved to read about their life and their fight.
Those who've read other reviews by me, might have noticed that I always
enjoy a challenge. So naturally a book about Wales and its history
(even nicely wrapped up in a romance) calls for a search for more
information - and I enjoyed reading about it and learning more about
this beautiful country.
"Stormswept" is a wonderful and well written
romance with amazing and very authentic characters that I can
whole-heartedly recommend, I really loved this book.

Rezension zu "Melodie der Sinnlichkeit" von Deborah Martin

Ich kenne Deborah Martin eigentlich als gute Autorin, deren Romane zwar nicht im 5-Sterne-Bereich anzusiedeln sind, für einen kleinen Lesehappen für Zwischendurch aber immer gut sind. Welch eine Enttäuschung ist dieser Roman. Aber zuerst mal zu den positiven Aspekten. Da fällt mir eigentlich nur der ungewöhnliche Plot ein. Eine Pfarrerstochter die Kirchenmusik komponiert und die Stücke unter dem Namen ihres trunksüchtigen Vaters veröffentlicht!!! Soweit mir bekannt, ist diese Hintergrundstory neu und hat der Geschichte den einen kläglichen Stern gerettet.
Nun zum Punktabzug: Die Geschichte ist fürchterlich langatmig erzählt. Es kommt weder Sympathie für Held/Heldin auf, noch für die Nebendarsteller. Die beiden stellen sich selten dämlich an, erkennen ihre eigentlichen Gefühle nicht und zicken sich völlig unnötig an. Die Geschichte hat keinen Schwung und keinen Pfeffer. Würde es sich um ein Erstlingswerk einer neuen Autorin handeln, könnte man noch Gnade vor Recht ergehen lassen. Aber Deborah Martin hat schon öfter bewiesen, daß sie es besser kann. Deshalb nur der eine Stern für den wirklich ungewöhnlichen Plot. Wer noch nie etwas von Deborah Martin gelesen hat, dem empfehle ich dringend den Piratenlord als Einstieg !!!!
