I really enjoyed the final book in the Landry Park series, and I'm sad to see it end. Everything wrapped up nicely, and I love the continued character growth and theme of finding yourself amidst expectations and duty. Lovely end to a lovely story.

Wow. What a great conclusion to this story! Plus I love the fact that I don’t have to wait for another book! YAY!

This was a great book, maybe even better than the first. I love a story with balls, gorgeous gowns, manners, society etc. But what makes this even more is the touch of dystopian that was in Landry Park. A high society oppressing a lower society and a girl and boy from each side brought together. *sigh* makes an epic story.

Great sequel! I absolutely loved Landry Park and was excited to continue on with the series and Jubilee Manor didn't disappoint! There were mysteries to be solved (although about half way through I predicted who the killer was), new revelations about the Landry's themselves and a new family member which totally surprised me. I loved the romance between Madeline and David it wasn't rushed or easy and they each had their own demons to deal with. I almost wish this series would have been 3 books be ...more

*My Thoughts*

Jubilee Manor is the second part of a two-part duology called Landry Park. This story picks up right where Landry Park left off. Madeline Landry, along with her Uncle Jack (aka Stephen Landry), have come together in hopes that they can bring an end to the centuries old resentment between the Gentry and Rootless. I beg your patience as I summarize without spoiling anything that happened in the previous novel. Hagen has created

Loved Landry Park and can't wait to read more about its world and amazing characters.

I truly am in desperate need of this book.

Too bad I have to wait until 2015...

3.5 stars

I really enjoyed the first book and I was quite eager to get back into this world. This one seemed to drag a bit in the beginning. Perhaps I would have enjoyed it more if I would have done a reread, but I lack the patience for that. With that being said, I struggled to remember some of the things that had happened.

Madeline doesn't seem to be as sure of herself in this book. She's constantly second guessing her decisions and while she still voices her opinion, to me it lacked conviction

Loved it! And I have to say thanks again to the author who I meet a couple weeks ago and was able to get an actual physical ARC to read! We jumped right back into the story, and learned that even though Madeline's father had been tortured by the Rootless, fed the radioactive material, he was quickly healing, and would soon be pretty close to back to normal. With her uncle, Jack, she is trying to do what she can to get the Gentry and the Rootless to come to an agreement, a way to settle things in ...more

I'm not sure why I even read this. I mean, I liked the first one okay, but I wasn't shivering with anticipation for the sequel. And there's a reason for that. The Landry Park novels are a pleasant diversion, but not much more. I think there may have been a message buried in here about energy sources or about the 1% versus the 99% or maybe both, but I was too distracted by descriptions of food and clothes and decor to notice. The characters were all sort of "meh" (was I suppose to care when (view ...more

This is weird to say, but I think this book should have been a regular fiction book rather than a YA- just because of the sheer SCOPE of the events of these two books. Think about it, you have:
-a serial murderer on the loose
-a faction of your people threatening to revolt
-an evil empire ready to strike
-AND your love life to deal with on top of all the family drama... seriously it would have been fun to delve more into some of these other areas and while I LOVE YA, it would be difficult to hold an

I continuously describe Landry Park, the first book in this series, as a Dystopian Jane Austen novel, or a science fiction Gone with the Wind. This installment fits in well with that motif, but it more of a science fiction Agatha Christie. While I think some of the dystopian elements were lost, what was added was an interesting sub plot and a political mystery.

Meh, just barely meh. I wasn't too crazy about the first book and this one was even worse. I read it just because I read the first one. If you like hastily throw together endings and grueling he said she said, I'm going to continue suppressing who I know I am and doing what's right than this is perfect for you. The main character is also really unrelatable and unlikeable. ...more

This was a great sequel and ending to the story!
WELL, pretty much the best thing I can say about this book is that it's better than Landry Park! Not MUCH better, honestly -- hence why it's still getting two stars; there was a chance I was going to round up, but the primary conflict of this book was, uh, bad -- still wildly racist/classist, if a little less predictable and tropey, and a little more engaging and creative and unique. But still not that great. Not at all good, actually.

I really liked it! The only reason why it is not a five is sometimes it was boring/slow, but I did read it in two sittings though so it was really good though. I loved the characters and the plot and the conclusion/ending. The main character was not whiny and was strong which I also liked. The plot was something I had never read before which I enjoyed because many books are similar to one another.
I definitely recommend this book. I wish there was a third book.

Although I thought a second book was not really necessary with the duology, I thoroughly enjoyed the ending and did not feel disappointed in any case.

There was just some instances that annoyed me like when the main character blames herself for the repercussions of her actions. I honestly thought it was not her fault that people were secretive. Moreover, I did not like how her friends kept on doubting her allegiances to helping the Rootless. She was very justifiable in her actions a

I received a copy of this book via the publisher in exchange for an honest opinion.

This was SUCH an interesting and unique spin on the dystopian genre. I mean, it was like reading a mixture of future and past, historical fiction and dystopian. I was really digging the concept throughout Landry Park. The whole ‘girl wants to go to learn but instead has to be the family heir’ was an interesting spin as well.

This may be more “it’s me” than the book, because I only liked the first one moderately. I did think I needed to know what happened next though. (Again, wrong.) I have reasons for not liking it, but boredom was number one. The rest?

Everything just felt anticlimactic and unimportant. Like, I guess some of the twists and such were supposed to cause surprise, but even if I didn’t see them coming, I just didn’t find anything too particularly exciting.

She is horrified to find out some of her old Gentry friends have been murdered, she turns sleuth to get to the bottom of it, to find out who is responsible for these terrible hate

I was heartbroken to see this series come to an end. With its luxurious settings and full characters, I could read about them for at least 1 or 2 other books.

I'll post a more detailed review later this year, because I'm still having all the feels.

As Madeline, her family, and the estate deal with the actions at the end of Landry Park, one of Madeline's fellow gentry heirs is murdered. Madeline suspects a particularly hateful Rootless man, which puts her at odds with her uncle and cousin, as well as with David Dana. A second murder only serves to escalate the threat of violence between the Rootless and the gentry, as Madeline feels caught in the middle, hoping to make a difference, but unsure of who will listen.

Some time after writing the above review I read Landry Park's sequel, Jubilee Manor, so I figured I would stick it into the same post. Jubilee Manor finishes up the series well. I still found the writing to be weak but the murder mystery kept me glued to the page in the way Landry Park's mystery failed to do for me in the first book. Various things I guessed to begin with paid off in a fairly believable way. The romance had its annoying bits unfortunately and I am still disappointed a shifty cha ...more

I really enjoyed Landry Park's sequel, Jubilee Manor. It accompanied its predecessor in great detail, flawlessly. It's been a while since I finished reading a book or series and not had any questions with closure... it was The End. And a great one at that.

Madeline Landry is an admirable character for her age. She's thoughtful, influential, strong... an old soul. Her character was tested and faced with trials and tribulations. It's how she handled them that made her inspirational. She'd make an a

I definitely preferred Landry Park in the series, but that doesn't mean this novel doesn't have its merits. It was definitely hard to read this one a year after reading the last, but that's just how it happened.
I liked the new character discoveries and the slight sci-fi genetic mutation, and especially the final resolution. I appreciated that some of the characters weren't just black and white, but had their grey areas, like Alexander Landry. The murderer was and wasn't surprising at the same t

I wasn't a massive fan of the first book, and, had this been a 3 part series I don't think I would have bothered concluding it. A second dip into the world seemed doable, and it was a perfectly adequate book to complete a perfectly fine dualogy.

You don't want to think too deeply about many elements in the world creation, as they don't work when you do. But it was an easy way for younger readers to get thinking about privilege, and that isn't a bad thing.

While I didn't read the first book, I didn't feel as though I lost too much as a result when reading this one. At first, the story was slow, but as things got more complicated and the murders happened, I was pulled in and kept there until the end. If you can imagine a book as an emotional sponge, this one would weep despair in quantity until the last couple chapters. At that point it would change to an equal mix of bittersweet and hope. Overall a satisfying read and I can see the similarities be ...more
