Something Dangerous (English Edition) Reviews
Der zweite Teil der Trilogie spielt rund um den zweiten Weltkrieg. Ein spannendes Buch, auch wenn ich die Charakteristik der Hauptfigur im ersten Teil besser gefunden habe. Durch die aufbauende Story hat man die Möglichkeit, die Schicksale einer Familie über mehrere Generationen zu verfolgen.
This is the second book in the Spoils of Time trilogy. The time period for this part of the Lytton family saga is from the late 1920's through the post WWII period. While set primarily in London, New York also features prominently in the story as does the Beckenham estate. While the prior book focused on Cecelia, this one involves the next generation, her children and Barty. While I initially found the twins to be vapid and spoiled, they do come into their own in this one and have some redeeming features. As in the previous novel, events in history feature prominently, with the rise of Hitler and the eventual war. As in the Great War, the women step in to run the company as the men go off to fight. Tragedy strikes in differing ways and love and betrayal also feature in the lives of the Lyttons and those around them. Fortunes change and we see different sides of some of the characters as they age.
Recently read a different Penny Vincenzi and was immediately hooked! This series doesn't disappoint--so well-researched and incredible character development. I'll be seeking out everything she's written!
This is the second of the trilogy of the Lytton family. Once again I found it hard to put down, the author has come up with a winning family saga ,it is a must read book, more enjoyable it you read from the first one, but it still stands up as a very good read, if you haven't read the first one.This family trilogy is a page turner not to be missed.
It's the 2nd book of a 3 set series. Don't let the number of pages stop you from buying it. The writing is never dull. I particularly liked how the author tied historical facts with fiction. It's the best series of books I've read in a very long time. The people in the book are 3 demential. I highly recommend this book, you don't have to read No Angel to read this one but if I were you I definitely read that one first. It covers 1904-1914. This one is from 1928 to 1946.I can't wait to start reading the 3rd and last book
I just loved this book! I'd give it a 10 if it were possible. As a sequel, I never thought it could live up to "No Angel", but I liked it even better. The description of the exodus from Paris when the rumors that the dreaded NAZIs were coming, and what it was like during that hour and a half when the German troops moved in...Wow. I can't believe the author wasn't there! And do the chickens ever come home to roost for Celia and Sebastien. I can't wait to read "Into Temptation"! I can see this as a mini-series or a really big movie like "The Winds of War."
