The Firebird

N hers With Rob to help her “see” the past she follows a young girl named Anna from Scotland to Belgium and on into Russia There in St Petersburg the once glittering capital of Peter the Great’s Russia Nicola and Rob unearth a tale of love and sacrifice of courage and redemptionan old story that seems personal and small perhaps against the greater backdrops of the Jacobite and Russian courts but one that will forever change their liv. Initial thoughts on finishing May 11th sigh Susanna Kearsley is one hell of a storyteller I m honestly not sure what my final rating for this one will be 4 45 or 5 On a purely emotional level it would be 5 stars I bawled like a baby happy tears through the last 30 pages or so and I really connected with the story and characters emotionally after having just recently read and loved The Winter Sea BUT looking at it from a critical point of view as a bloggerreviewer it wasn t perfect it started out kind of slow and dragged terribly in places it took me almost two weeks to read it so I have to take that into account But then throw in the fact that Anna was an incredible character plus the swoonworthyness of Rob and Jamieson and Edmund andughthis is going to be a hard review to write Will try to have it up by next weekFull review May 22nd This review was originally posted on my blog Ramblings of a Daydreamer You can find it and many reviews at the blog45 starsYou guys This book My heart sighI honestly don t know where to begin I guess first I d like to thank the amazing Simon and Schuster Canada for sending me this book as an unsolicited ARC because if they hadn t I might never have read The Winter Sea and in turn never read The Firebird it s companion And that would be a crime because these booksI honestly don t think I can do them justice in a review I attempted a coherent review with The Winter Sea but having just finished The Firebird I m a jumble of emotions and it s so rare that a book can do that these daysI said in my review of The Winter Sea that the book single handedly rekindled my love of historic fiction I couldn t wait to immerse myself in another of Kearsley s worlds knowing the setting would be rich and vibrant and as I journeyed with both Nicola and Anna through time and multiple countries I fell in love with Kearsley s writing all over again She has a gift for seamlessly weaving the present with the past and creating a story that is breathtaking in its details revelations and charactersAnd oh the characters I thought it would be hard to top the characters in The Winter Sea but I think I might just like Anna even than I liked Sophia Anna was strong fearless and selfless She would do anything for the people she loved and even sacrifice her own happiness to protect them I was so happy to be reunited with Colonel Graeme and see his affection for Sophia pass to young Anna Captain Jamieson was sweet and gentle with an air of mystery about him and I loved his interactions with Anna as a little girl and the promises he made to her I get choked up just thinking about it I won t mention other characters by name because it seems a bit spoiler y but it was nice to see other familiar faces as well and I adored Edmund as Anna s love interest He challenged her in ways than one he spoke freely and wasn t the gentlemanly sort she was used to but I liked that he was a bit rough around the edges and I found myself falling for the sexy roguish Irishman He challenged Anna and it was clear she was up for the challengeAs with The Winter Sea the historic aspects of The Firebird were my favourite I couldn t wait to be transported back to eighteenth century Russia to be reunited with Anna and learn her fate I enjoyed the present day parts too Nicola was a great character and while I thought Carrie s story in The Winter Sea was of a vehicle for Sophia s story it felt like Nicola s story was really thought out and fleshed out She started out uncertain and embarrassed by her abilities but with Rob s help and encouragement she grew to not only accept her gifts but hone them and it was nice to see I also really enjoyed the romance between them and I felt their connection from the very beginning It s no secret I m a sucker for a Scotsman and I fell hard for the ones in this bookOn a purely emotional level I would give The Firebird 5 stars I loved it so much and I know these characters and their stories will stay with me for a long time However on a critical level I don t feel I can actually give it those full 5 stars The story started out a bit slow and there were times when it really dragged It took me almost two weeks to read this book and I d like to say it was because I was savouring each detail but it was because there were times I felt like I was slogging through I enjoyed the whole story don t get me wrong but it felt like it could have been shorter However the last half or so of the book really picked up and it got to the point where I didn t even want to go to bed because I was finally enjoying the story so much and I wanted to find out what was going to happenThe Firebird is a beautifully written story with characters that practically leap off the pages a story that alternately broke my heart and healed it and a pair of romances or a trio accurately that made me fall in love This book made me laugh made me cry I seriously bawled happy tears through the last 30 or so pages and made me certain that
