Finde es super Ist aber eher der Auftakt zu einem Krimi daher sollten eingefleischte Krimileser evtl gleich mehrere B nde mitnehmen, sonst sitzen sie zu schnell auf dem Trockenen F r mich, als nicht Krimifan macht die K rze des Textes garnichts Es handelt sich haupts chlich um die Beschreibung der Beziehung der Hauptfigur zu dem Dieb Garret und wird gemischt aus beiden Perspektiven erz hlt Nebenher l uft der Erz hlstrang der Hauptstory a la Jack the Ripper, die mich dann wieder pers nlich historisch interessiert Daher passt das Buch dann doch zu meinem Geschmack Habe eine Krimi Allergie. Excellent This made such a refreshing change from the modern novels I usually read It s well written, carefully researched and utterly believable Victorian London was a dark, forbidding place and the author has recreated it in this story This has the makings of a terrific series. @Download Book â The Lion's Courtship º London,Anna Kronberg Hides In The City S Most Notorious Slum, Offering Medical Treatment To Prostitutes, Beggars, And Criminals Of All Kinds None Of Her Neighbours Knows Her True Identity, And She Makes Sure It Stays That Way When The Irish Thief Garret O Hare Breaks Into Her Home In The Dead Of The Night, Bleeding Profusely From A Gunshot Wound And Collapsing On Her Bed, Her Life Begins To Take A Deadly Turn Prequel To The Bestselling Anna Kronberg Thriller Series This Book Is Not For The Faint Hearted Explicit Language, Explicit Medical Scenes, Violence, Poverty, And Prostitution Are Depicted Without Prettifying The Lion s Courtship is a prequel to The Devil s Grin It covers the meeting of Garret O Hare and Anna Kronberg Part romance Annelie Wendeberg style , part thriller, this book explores the St Giles area of Victorian London in all its filth and horror while maintaining a ray of hope throughout the story I really enjoyed this book, and hope to seeof Garret and Anna DNF at 47%She performs simple surgeries, sometimes amputations She helps reluctant children out of their mothers wombs, cleans and stitches up cuts When, in a few months, the summer arrives and heats up people s heads and makes them go wild about trifles, her supply of bandages, disinfectant, and opium will melt away in but a few days. Normally I wouldn t write a review for a book I didn t finish but this one is different Even though I decided not to go on, I still think this is a pretty decent story at least as far as I read Annelie Wendeberg isn t only able to capture Victorian London atmospherically but also seems to have done her research when it comes to the medical procedures the protagonist Anna Kronberg performs view spoiler an abortion for example hide spoiler Anna Kronberg and Garret match well together at the heighten of Victorian living Author Annelie Wendeberg competently conveys the period and locale as a backdrop to an London impoverished neighborhood of subpar sanitary conditions The trepidation of Anna to keep her distance from Garret because of a secret she is keeping, while at the same time finding herself drawn to him works well through the novel The subplot of the novel is the main characters investigation into the murder of a prostitute, in the vein of Jack the Ripper For a contemporary written novel, Wendeberg s tone matches nicely with the proper Victorian classics, but updated with a pacingin line with expectations of readers that enjoy murder mysteries I did not know that this was a prelude book to a series of Anna Anton Kronberg stories Hence when I read the excerpt at the end of the book, I found it jarring to read Anna Anton have a dueling dialogue with Sherlock Holmes While during the novel proper I believed Anna s intellectual prowess, I found it suspect to pit her against Holmes That is only my initial thoughts from reading a few pages though, so don t hold that much weight to my observations on that point The novel proper was quite good in comparison. 3.75 stars I liked the no nonsense writing in this book I actually liked the whole writing style overall It wasn t perfect but I liked the way the author tells the story It was hard to really love this book because it s actually a little depressing because of the setting and real life circumstances and portrayal of poverty in past London The author did a good job at portraying what it was really like without sugar coating, so that was a good thing, but hard to read none the less I m pretty sensitive so this isn t anything against the book really I know it s a good thing to be reminded of the hardships people have faced and still do to this day But it s still a little hard to read about But the best thing about the story was Anna and Garrett I love them both a lot Garrett is so incredibly sweet and loving I love his insecurities and his love for Anna He is just an excellent character Anna is pretty awesome too She isn t some uptight prissy annoying female She is tough and gritty She doesn t dance around issues or situations she faces, no matter how horrible and the story benefits from her no nonsense personality and keeps the story flowing at a good pace I love awesome female leads She is tough but also caring She is able to suppress emotion when a job needs to be done, but she s also kind and giving And she does have emotions, but she doesn t let them limit her or control her most of the time And I love their love story It s sweet and real and slow building They are two flawed characters that come to genuinely enjoy the other and care for each other The other thing I like about this book is that it reminds you that there is rarely only right and wrong Or black and white There is so much gray area surrounding morals It s important to remember that even though we like to think there is right or wrong, we have to make sure we are also aware that there are so many circumstances and effects of every decision made that it is so hard to make snap judgements Anyways, i really liked the story and it s originality I actually really enjoyed this Set in late 1800s While some of it was hard to read confronting , it was an interesting and enjoyable read with a sweet bit of romance.The photos of the time included at the end of people she based characters on are also interesting.As this is a prequel to the series I have now got the first book and was interested to read the preface where the author explains that she found journals written by a woman, when restoring a house dating back to 1500s, and has based her stories characters on these Love the photos of old London will be keeping this series on my read list. I ll start by saying that I m a huge fan of the Anna Kronberg novels This book is the prequel to The Devil s Grin and delvesinto he relationship between Anna and Garret While this is romance, there is a lotgoing on than that This story takes you through the slums of Victorian London for a closer look at desperate poverty, prostitution, and the plight of children born and raised in this environment without attempting to pretty it up The relationships that develop between the characters in this setting are fascinating There is a lot to like about Garret and Anna I enjoyed getting to seeof their motivations and interactions. an interesting prequel to the anna kronberg series well written, descriptions of the victorian london doesn t leave nothing to the imagination, and i m sure it was even worse quite a twist in the endit s time now to move on to the other books
