In book three, Charlotte Braninov, Nikolai, Indrina, and Zlata were onboard a ship to London, after a harrowing escape from the Russian Reds. Although the four of them were exhausted, traumatized and malnourished they were relieved and thankful to finally be out of Russia. Once in London, Charlotte was able to arrange living quarters for herself and her friends. However, not long after she was settled, Charlotte had some distressing news about a Russian acquaintance who had gone to France for business but had never returned. Although, Charlotte didn’t relish the thought of leaving the safety of London, she felt compelled to investigate. She was horrified, though, when she found that the Russian Reds were in France. After a violent encounter with one of them, Charlotte found herself on the run, once again. There was a silver lining in the midst of her frightening visit to France though; Charlotte was able to find out that the illness that her beloved, Robert, had suffered from, caused temporary memory loss. Years back, Charlotte was crushed and humiliated when Robert acted as if he didn’t know her. Charlotte now knew, why her beloved had carried on the way he did, and Charlotte was determined more than ever to find him.
Robert Fitzgerald, while in the Crown’s service was sent to Africa. At first, he couldn’t think of a more horrible place to be, with its dangerous wild animals, cannibals, human trafficking and God awful humid heat. Robert, however, had a change of heart while in service there. It bothered him tremendously that it was almost a knee-jerk reaction to kill people. So after visiting a fallen commander’s home, he decided to settle down and care for animals. He found that in healing them, he was healing his own soul as well. Robert ached, though, whenever he thought of Charlotte. He had no idea that she was still alive.
Roy Griffis’s writing style and story-telling is nothing less than extraordinary. This novel captivated me from the start. I loved every page, and can’t wait for book four to be released.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
The three become beloved of the crew aboard the ship. Nikolai and Charlotte use their medical skills to help the crew while Zlata entertains them with her feeding and exercising Liberte.
Meanwhile, Robert Fitzgerald is in Africa. He is forced to deal with cannibals, white hunters and native people who have little regard for British interference in their country.
Robert finds he can lead men and he can kill men. But at what cost his own soul. He decides to leave the service and follow his heart.
A wonderful tale of the many difficulties that were present after the great war was over. The climate was rich for hatred of entire cultures. The atmosphere after the war was presented beautifully. The characters are people we have come to love. They continue to grow stronger having risen from their multitude of predicaments.
Another beautifully done book, but alas it is not the final book in the series. There is to be one more book. I am so ready for Charlotte and Robert to be on the same continent, find each other, and have their “happily ever after.”
If you have been following along with the first two books in the series, I am sure you will love Book 3. Roy Griffis is a talented writer. Give him a try.
This series is a compelling look at the world of the Great War and afterwards. Using the perceptions of two main characters, the story unfolds as their experiences affect, and change, them. Yet some things remain unchanged and immovable, such as the feelings the two main characters have for each other. It underscores and supports them regardless of external factors.
I've enjoyed the two previous works by Roy Griffis, and did with this one as well. I'll admit that it take a certain mindset to begin reading the stories - they are not light reads! But they are worthwhile to begins and to spend the time in them. And it makes me wish for a personal incursion in what happens.
Read the books. You'll be glad of it.
