Song for a Lost Kingdom: Love Never Surrenders
“One of those rare stories that seem to make you part of the story, not just a reader. The combination of history, intrigue, drama and romance, not to mention time travel... awesome!!" - Raewynn Osborne
And Adeena Stuart is not bound by anything that will stop her from saving the man she’s fallen in love with, even though he’s be...more
Which is, simply put, what exactly happened to me while I was reading this book.
First and foremost, this is quite the heck of an emotional roller coaster ride; this book had me feeling all sorts of feelings and emotions, I don’t think I can ever write a coherent review, so here’s a heads-up; pretty gushy review is coming your way.
When I read Book 1, I was so fascinated by the concept of music connecting time. Music have been used in fictional stories so many times but not like this though this concept reminded me of an Asian (Korean or Japanese) teen movie where the girl went to the future and she plays piano. I forgot the title because I’ve watched a long time ago, so if any of you find this familiar, please tell me the title. but I remember liking it the same way I liked Adeena’s story. And ...more
Book 2 answered my questions but gave me more to ponder. It starts off immediately where book 1 left off. Adeena has been brought out of her coma. The time travel in this novel is really compelling. It’s clear Steve Moreitti did his research and that really helped ...more
This story grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go! I received an eARC with no strings attached.
Music is still present in the li ...more
Book 2 showed me the depths of what happened to both of them. Adeena was in coma but had travelled to the eighteenth century to be with James and to save his life. In the 21st century, doctors along with her parents tried various techniques to bring Adeena out of her coma and to s ...more
I like the premise of this book, the series. It's a fascinating concept which Steve Moretti has brought to life in a good story. There are two main characters, Adeena and James, and a cast of characters to cheer for and others you just wish to boo. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep it interesting with possible hints of what is to come. This book is a good read and I definitely recommend it.
I don’t know what to say about this book. The premise was awesome to begin with, an interesting twi ...more
I was a little disappointed in this book. The prequel and book 1 were better. I think this one had too many offshoots and dwelled on the fighting too much. I understand that the battles were an Intricate part of the story. The twist at the last was a very nice touch. And, don’t get me wrong, I would recommend this book.
This is my honest review.
I read the first book and was immediately hooked by the idea of being pulled through time by music. I fell in love with the characters and waited (impatiently) for book 2.
This one didn't disappoint! Pulling you back and forth through time and countries, I was pulled into the Jacobite rebellions of 1746. I knew only a little of the history but could feel the pride, courage, and even exhaustion and desperation, of the men and women who fought for their beloved country.
The bo ...more
Song for a Lost Kingdom takes place immediately after the events of book 1. Adeena had been brought out of her coma and is de ...more
Superb storyline + gripping writing = A.M.A.Z.I.N.G book.
Song For a Lost Kingdom took me on a such a wave of symphony– I never wanted it to end. The only thing it fell short of, was giving me a live orchestra recital.
With every page that I turned, the story got further from reality, further from the world as we know it, and yet, somehow, it all made perfect sense.
Hell, it made me root for Lady Katherine! And Adeena Stuart. That would have been two people, except they’re ...more
The time travel element was interestingly done Adenna does not physically go back in time. Her consciousness is what travels through time and into Katharine Carnegie. However there were tim ...more
Sometimes I just wanted to shake Adeena to give up her love of music and James and return to this cen ...more
Rated 3.75 stars.
Let’s get to the point: I honestly don’t know if the sequel has lived up to my expectations or not. I did like it very much, and all the potential is still there (the story is still not finished), the story has its strong points, and it’s definitely one of the most original things that I’ve ever read. So, I really cannot say that it’s not good, or that I didn’t enjoy it. It is, and I did. I don’t even say that it’s something c ...more
