I think this is the last on my list of books I added to my list from the Bout of Books twitter chat. Here is my review of The Duchess War by Courtney Milan.
I will admit my first impression on this story was not a great one. I was so confused. A lot of names were thrown together quickly and I had a rough time figuring out how it all fit together (and the time period itself). It was probably around a quarter of the way through the book that I really felt good about who all of the players were.
Once I got to that point I did start really enjoying the story. I like Minnie and Robert and their relationship together. It’s an interesting pairing that shows there are different kinds of outcasts. I figure I’ll give the next story a shot and hope that now that I know the setting better I’ll get in to the story much faster. This was one just okay so I give it two out of five stars.
