Now I have comitted myself to finishing the series I can only hope it does not drag on like a bad soap opera for the final two instalments The book itself is long winded overly written dribble that takes way too damn long to arrive at a point Had the writer or editor shorted it by twenty or so chapters this would have been a fine read Instead they let it drag on and on and wait even ON until it final ends Only to conclude in the sadest fashioned any book can WITH NO DAMN CONCLUSION Geez the next book better not suck or I am no longer listening to goodreads on suggestions for future books

Than ever when the house of Deravenel is fatally rocked by betrayal from within Who will become the ultimate ruler of the Deravenels? Power and money passion and adultery ambition and treachery all illuminate a dramatic epic saga that brings to life the glittering Edwardian Era The Ravenscar Dynasty is based on the familial factions of England's Wars of the Roses brought to life by the magical memorable storytelling power that is I'm not sure why many readers thought this book was lacking but I found it very entertaining I love a series that involve the ins and outs of family drama and this is no different Set in the late 1800's and early 1900's the Deravenals are set upon a path of money success and family Then one day all that changes and the oldest heir Edward is thrust into the front of the family fold He has to take care of his mother and siblings as well as regain control of his father's company His cousin Neville Watkins comes to his aid and they both set upon a coup in other words of regaining ownership of the Deravenals company Cousins against cousins in a sense Edward is a suave handsome charismatic passionate man He loves his blondes and his widows preferably to be one in the same A player if there ever was one You get to go along the journey and meet his many mistresses and children and see how he handles these women And the relationship he has with his wife I know will set up for book two in the series Elizabeth a widow when Edward met her is a gorgeous blonde woman with two previous sons from her first marriage She makes Edward fight for her and then you see her become cold toward Edwards family There wasn't too much about her in the book other than that she is cold judgemental and a bitch apparently I liked the pace of this book It cut uick to the relevancy of the story The dialogue wasn't long winded so everything written had a purpose If you like British genteel power hungry players passion in and out of the bedroom and family drama this is the book for you

The Ravenscar DynastyRe suspicious of the deaths They vow to seek the truth avenge the deaths and retake control of their family's business empireAs he grows into a handsome charismatic man Edward is torn between duty and desire There are women in his life for whom he'll risk everything and one woman who might destroy him But madness and secrecy lie at the heart of the family and Edward's enemies are far ruthless than he knows He will need his strength This is an absolutely god awful read as this has to be one of the worst books I have ever read in my life I would have given it a negative rating if it were possible I picked up the audio book on a whim at the library for a recent trip and this is certainly 16 hours of my life that I will never get back The plot line is predictable to anyone who has the least bit of knowledge about the War of the Roses The writing is simplistic and the characters are all one dimensional and as a conseuence extremely boring The hero Edward is portrayed as this 19 yo Greek God loved by all who encounter him and who can do no wrong including run a global trading company while having no business experience whats so ever Too many story lines drag on and on and on while any opportunity to develop the characters is missed and one comes away not caring that much about any of them While the reader has a nice voice he is at times overly melodramatic reminding me of an afternoon soap opera There is just nothing redeeming about this book and I cannot recommend it to anyone
