Stormbringers by Philippa Gregory Review

Expected Publication Date: June 4, 2013
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Format: ARC
Page Count: 336 pages
Source: Publisher
Series: Order of Darkness #2


Synopsis:
Italy, 1453. Luca and Isolde grow more and more attracted to each other as they continue their journey to unravel the mysteries throughout Christendom. But their travels are delayed by the uprising of an intense religious crusade that threatens the balance of the civilized world. Death lingers in the air as war ravages on, but this religious conflict is nothing compared to the arrival of an intense and deadly storm.

Caught in the midst of unimaginable chaos, Luca and Isolde must rely on one another in order to survive.

The second in Philippa Gregory’s four-book series delves further into a forbidden romance and an epic quest. And the tension builds as secrets about The Order of Darkness are finally revealed...


Review:

I really wanted to like this, I really did but no. I gave this too many chances and I will not be continuing this series or finishing this book either.

The characters were dull and bland. It felt like it was a story that never ends. Nothing happened and in the synopsis it mentions romance, yeah no. There was no romance. This is suppose to be a fantasy novel, and it hardly had any hardcore action scenes.
In my honest opinion, there should be less world building and history (that's what the first book is for) and more character development and a change of writing style. Books are for enjoyment, not boredom.
