ROOTS IN MYTH: Lucky Leprechaun Hop—ASHFALL by Mike Mullin: I'm thrilled to be participating in the LUCKY LEPRECHAUN GIVEAWAY HOP hosted by Inspired Kathy at I am a Reader, Not a Writer . It's simple...
Savoy is a privileged English lady who runs into trouble
head-first when she goes looking for her missing father during the crux of the
French Revolution and just as England is in turmoil trying to avoid a revolution
of their own. She disguises herself both as a highway robber and as a proper
young lady, befriending a notorious but dashing criminal, a studious American,
and a cross-dressing prostitute along the way.
If you like European history and the French Revolution,
you’ll like this book- there’s a lot of history deeply interwoven into the plot.
It’s even a little Sherlock Holmes-y with a dark mystery running through as
well. I enjoyed the strong female character- you have to love a spunky leading
lady in historical fiction where there is more at stake. However, I didn’t think
there was enough personal story to counteract the crazy historical territory the
author covered. With all those male characters, I was hoping for a little more
drama on that front.
