The Clearing is the second book in this series about a modern-day, young, Russian woman who dies and is reborn as a medieval countess in a parallel world. I really enjoyed the story, and I loved the characters enough that the repetition and inconsistencies could be ignored. However, as others have said in their reviews, the author has chosen to end the books as cliffhangers, and fully the last third of The Clearing was a preview of the next book in the series...meanin ...more

I have always been a time traveler fan. I didn't expect much from this series, but after reading the sample for book 1, I decided to read the whole book and have enjoyed the first two books very much. I plan on reading the rest of the series.
If you love fantasy set in the medieval universe, court intrigue, a strong female protagonist who uses wit and grit to overcome obstacles, join me on this journey! Stay in touch, Lina

I enjoyed the continuation of the time travel events of the heroine in the story. Her use of her former life skills and knowledge to help her castle, villagers, her step-daughter and herself are mind-boggling! Recommend this series for people who enjoy this genre.
Meanwhile Miranda has arrived to the castle, not to Aliya’s delight. How is she supposed to hide her true self while a child is roaming the castle? And for how much longer will Aliya be able to keep her true identity in the shadows?

This was not a book. This was a preface to a book. Nothing happened. Book one was fun. So I decided to get book 2. Not great literature but fun. Wanted to know what hAppened to Lilly. Still don't know. And it cost $6.99. Way too much for a book that isn't really a book and one you buy just for a quick fast read. $1.99 would be stretching it. So here's the deal. Five books in the series equal about 1 real book. I would say this story wasn't worth $35.00. So I won't be buying any more. ...more
This book moved faster than the 1st book. I give it a 4.5 Star, since the story still jumps to different point-of-views at almost every other paragraph & some editing needs work. Understandably, this book is a translation from Russian, so tenses and verb usage & spelling may have been a factor.
This story moved at a quick pace. There are a couple scenes that seemed long and drawn out, but not as much, compared to the 1st book.
Great world building. I cannot wait to ...more
