Angelique in Revolt - Ex
Sergeanne Golon - 4th in series

I know I read several Angelique books in the 60's (still have some on my shelves in fact) and I recall being somewhat embarrassed buying them - I guess back then that type of book was still considered "naughty" and I was still in my teens. I found a diary entry where I wrote out a quote from the book: "she knew that she would inevitably succumb to the subtle bond that draws a woman, with her inner longing for subjugation, into the arms of the man who has vanquished her". I guess this series was ...more

Konečně se daly věci více měné do pohybu a Angelika si uvědomila, že se musí vzchopit a pokračovat dále.
Byla jsem překvapená, že nakonec převládla její vlídná stránka k tomu básníku, který očernil ji a jejího manžela. Čekala bych od ní trochu něco jiného, měla se zachovat jinak, ale namísto toho prostě podlehla. To mi nepřišlo jako pravá povaha Angelika, protože jsem si vybavila tu scénu v uličce, kdy ona a Nikolaus a jeho poddaní z "podsvětí" vyděsili mnicha, který odsoudil jejího manžela. Rad

This is the first of the Angelique novels that takes place after the last of the movies, Angelique and the Sultan, so it's the place to start if you've seen the movies and just want to continue on. Engrossing, but a bit grueling. Angelique really gets put through the mill in this one, but her indomitable spirit sees her through.

The whole 7 parts of Angelique are the typical example of classic romance and adventure - they are able to enchant people 30 years ago as now. The strong female character and the richness of the story is what the present book shelf missing.
This is the fifth book in the Angelique series. I read this in high school many years ago.

The whole series has remained a favourite of mine since I was a teenager. Grand rollicking adventure and love in the seventeenth century France with brains and courage at the center of it all.

My first in a history, romance series -- I LOVED all of them and was sad when Serge died. The last book, by Anne, clearly showed what Serge added.

The first half was weak and very drama queenish. The second half was better; in fact quite gripping!

And the heat is on. Angelique finally grows up in this book, in which I learned about religious repression under the Sun King.
