The Guard have always been with us, their powers passed on from generation to generation. Usually the old and new Guards have no connection, but that all changed when the six became seven and the brooding Alexi Rychman, leade

I would say that I was just the wrong reader for this book, there are good parts, but for the most part, I felt very disconnected when it came to what was going on. I liked the start when Violet was young, but the last 50-60% of the book was a true struggle for me to get through. I just never truly warmed up to the characters nor to the story which makes me a bit sad because I really loved the beginning of the book.

Thanks to Macmillan-Tor/Forge for the review copy!

I received this book through NetGalley.

Hauntingly hopeful, Miss Violet & the Great War explores the tragedy of the first World War with poetic grace. I found this not to be a book to blaze through in one sitting, but one to savor and appreciate in little bites. That's not to say it's a slow read, either. This is a book that felt like immersing myself into a cozily hot bath.

I've read one of the related books in Hieber's world, The Eterna Files, and that was a few years ago now. I jumped into

Miss Violet and the Great War has an interesting premise. She has visions of the war to come. But, something about the execution of the story wasn't right. Maybe it's too philosophical? Either way, I didn't connect with this story. Thanks to NetGalley for an arc in exchange for an honest review.

I received a copy of Miss Violet & The Great War through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Miss Violet & The Great War is the fourth novel in the Strangely Beautiful series by Leanna Renee Hieber. The novel follows Violet Rychman and William Page as they try and balance out the lives around them with the prophecies they’ve been handed. They live in a world full of muses and gods and goddesses. It probably goes without saying that it is a chaotic world.

Assaggiato e abbandonato: non mi piace lo stile, non amo le smancerie, i personaggi sono poco interessanti e poco credibili insieme.
