    I am not a genre reader in general but I was up to trying something new I very much loved the opening of the tale I found it very captivating and how she interlaced the lives of both Aliya and Lilian a soul that hungers to live vs a soul that wants to die Reading this double character that is conflicting but also cooperative in a way and its development was very refreshing and interesting to me The first book is quite scattered but I guess it is necessary for worldbuilding I w...

    This is a good story with terrible editing, confusing at times The author jumps from one character to another in a shockingly abrupt manner The only thing that kept me reading was the story, it s a good one, the main character is pragmatic and has determination Nevertheless, I wo...

    Publishing Date April 2018Publisher LithunterISBN 9781980565512Genre SciFi FantasyRating 3.5 5Publisher s Description A brilliant Medical school graduate Aliya, a sporty and active girl, dies suddenly in a car crash only to find herself reborn in a completely different body, in the middle of a dilapidated castle during Medieval times While confused and dismayed, Aliya realizes she has been given another chance at life so she rolls up her sleeves and gets to work on restoring her new castle and her new life.Review This story line has been done before.a lot I remember reading an old scifi novel where an engineer ended up in Poland prior to WWII and reshaped that countries destiny Since then, there have been many a spin off of the parallel world time travel variety So what sets this novel apart from the rest that have gone before Read on The rendering of the period is just what you would expect Dirty, muddy, stinky and gross Hygiene was considered unholy and the author captures this slice of life to perfection Rotten t...

    A book, I so wanted to love but I failed My 2 star rating is not so much for the author but is awarded to her support team The book needs editing Maybe a lot got lost in translation who knows.The concept of the story is one I love I am for one a fan of the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon and love the historical fiction books by Sharon Penman.What I look for in a fiction book is simple Romance, Action, humour or a combination of them The author failed on all accounts and concentrated on the development of gadgets, such as making inkwells and clasps for earrings and a rigid weight loss scheme.The main character is cold She just lost her parents and her own body in a car accident and her new persona whose body she possesses in the medieval setting has lost her baby I would be devastated but not Aliya Lilian She is concerned about the pink colour of the walls, her overweigh...

    It s the candy, not the wrapper, that matters And it s the person you live with, not their good looks This book reminded me a lot of Game of thrones mixed with the tv show Reign who has a modern woman running an Count s estate There was humor, political intrigue, backstabbing, and entertaining adventures similar to the shows above My only only issue i had with this story and its a big issue in my opinion is the jumping from perspective to perspective in the middle of a chapter without warning I really...

    I was shown a copy of this book and thought that I probably wouldn t enjoy it as it really isn t the sort of book I like However, I have to admit I found myself drawn into the story I can t explain why but there is something very enjoyable ...

    It s the candy, not the wrapper, that matters And it s the person you live with, not their good looks Aliya wakes up in another body in a different time period after she dies in a car crash Her former life as a medical student is gone and now she is Lilian Earton Countess of Earton In a whole new world Aliya has to get used to the medieval thinking and at the same time try to find people who can invent the items that already exists in our world.Lina J Potter gives us a story like no one I ve read before were a strong female character slowly changes the world she s living in Lilian might not have been the kindest person but with her authority and Aliyas intelligent mind, a great unique woman is in the spotlight I m so happy that LitWorld s lithuntersph Orisha o.orisha reached out to me and asked me if I wanted to read some of Lina s work because I m pretty sure that this series will get even better and better as it continues The only negative thing I have to say about the book is that Aliya s comments about Lilians body sometimes gets a little bit too much and was very close to fat shaming That s something I m really against and don t like at all But after living in Lilian s body for a while she seems to realize that she is beautiful, even though she has fat on her body than she did in her former body First Lessons by Lin...

    Fun writer, fun storyI thought this was a time travel novel but discovered it was a fantasy The characters are very interesting both in motivation and action There s plenty of room for deviance from historical development and events because it s an earth like world but not the middle ages earth.The story moved fast and some would probably say too fast I would agree with them but in the main character s situation, I would probably do the same or something similar The dangers from poor hygiene, poor diet, lack of medical knowledge and stifling of innovation are very powerful drivers for making change as quickly as feasible for the sake of survival.Since this isn t Medieval Europe, the power of the guilds and the rise of the early cities doesn t have to be mirrored too closely in this world That said, between the charging ahead by the main character and the lack of opposition to changes in merchant goods, farming and other things, the...

    I could not get through this book Found myself flipping pages just to read about the main character Everything else was buzzing in my ear This book does not have a plot and just buzzes on and on I cannot figure out what genre to put it into I will not bother with book 2.
