The author portrays a refreshing look at the lives of nineteenth century European immigrants and their hardships. Their superstitions combined with the struggle for survival lay out a path of intrigue that lingers on the pages and keeps the reader interested. I could see the vivid hues of the performers' costumes, hear the lion's roar and the cheering crowd under the Big Top. I could feel the passion of Inzared's love and the agony of her heartbreak. I look forward to hearing more from Queen of the Elephant Riders.
L.Leander has done an excellent job of accurately capturing the time period and the gypsy culture and you are truly pulled into the world of a travelling gypsy circus in the 1800s. The characters are very likable and realistic with dialogue that feels natural and fits the characters well. You really get to know the characters and connect with them. The story has a little bit of everything you could want in a book: romance, mystery, suspense, adventure, tragedy, and comedy. This is truly a book that can be enjoyed by just about anyone, no matter your typical genre preference.
This is L.Leander's debut novel, but from the quality of the writing, you would never guess it. Inzared is wonderfully written, plotted, and edited. Once I had started it, it was a challenge just to put it down. If this is only the beginning of what she has to offer, I can't wait to see what's next!
It was hard for me to tell who the audience was. It seemed at time to be directed to a young adult audience, but some of the romantic scenes seemed inappropriate for that audience. The writing in those scenes seemed on the brink of bodice ripper romances, not what young adults would relate to, in my opinion. If the book was not intended for a young adult audience, the book was not equal to the audience.
Inzared's voice vacillated between "hillbilly" and not hillbilly. Her vocabulary did not match her grammar and sentence structure. Her voice did not seem to grow with the story and the amount of time the story represented.
No reference was made to any research the author did to construct her vision of the gypsy lifestyle, or the behind the scenes world of the circus of this time period. It would have helped me to know that the backdrop for the story was based in reality. If the ceremonies and customs described are indeed those practiced by the Roma people, that would have been interesting to know.
The misuse of "it's" included "its'," a new variation I had never seen before. Usage of "its" versus "it's" is a gauge I use, fairly or unfairly, to measure writing skill. This author did not pass muster.

I really liked this book. It had an interesting premise being from so long ago. At one part I thought it would turn into a sappy romance but instead it turned into a mystery. Read morePublished on May 4, 2014 by J. Benner
I enjoyed reading about the old circus life. Inzared's way of talking took a little getting used to. I felt the last part of the book, after Timmon is born, went way too fast. Read morePublished on January 28, 2014 by Sheila L.
