They kept me glued to this story. They frustrated me, angered me, made me smile, and at times, they made me want to cry. Awa had to grow on me, her stubbornness made me want to strangle her. But I enjoyed Blaise the moment that he graced the pages. He was humorous, gentle, and charming.
I will admit that the palace shenanigans made the story flavorful, and I couldn't wait to see how all of it would affect Blaise and Awa. So I would give this story 4 stars, and I hope that the author decides to write a story about Louise. I think she deserves some happiness after all she has been through. And I was hoping it would be Babacar.
I really enjoyed this. I loved the first book-which had colonial America, so I knew that French history and Wolof history would be wow! PJ Dean did not disappoint. Very detailed; fascinating. If there is any criticism, it's mainly that it's more historical fiction than romance. Frankly, that is ok with me. There is so little historical fiction portraying Africa at all (outside of Egypt) and I loved it. And the romance line is not bad-the heroine has intelligence and dedication. Loved it. Can't wait for book 3.
When the author, P.J. Dean, sent me a blurb, I was instantly hooked on this novel’s concept. It. Is. So. Unique! I was quite backlogged on other review requests, but finally, I got around to breaking into this genre. It felt like coming home. The heart-pulls, shared excitement, blush-worthy moments, crestfallen characters. . . all the twists and turns of a great emotional roller coaster . . . this story is chock-full of them.
I use the term “chock-full” because it is a very long read, which is pretty atypical of a romance book. I was fine with that, though. It is a historical romance, and Dean paints a very detailed backdrop of 1500s France (and Africa). The cast of characters is large, too, but all of their rolls are important to drive the plot.
The length is not the only atypical feature of Dissent. The premise is founded on an African woman in an arranged marriage with a protestant Frenchman (when Catholicism was the majority religion). You don’t see that match-up very often in romances, do you? When you read this book, though, it is very evident that Dean did her research. The setting is intricately described all the way down to the renaissance era’s politics, phraseology, etiquette, clothing, foods, and other tidbits of culture. Bravo!
All in all, a good book. Thanks for sending it my way, Ms. Dean! I wish other authors would change things up and break down the usual cliches of the genre. It makes for an exquisite read!
