  1. God, this book seemed interminable I can t blame the story or the writing or the research, all of which were up to Harrod Eagles s normal, excellent standards No, I blame growl Annunciata I loathe that spoiled, narcissistic, self indulged, self centered, amoral, and thoroughly sybaritic bitch She never grew, never changed, never left behind any of her selfish ways was perfectly content, happy even, to leap from man to man, husband to husband, uncaring as to what vows, what laws of man or God, this book seemed interminable I can t blame the story or the writing or the research, all of which were up to Harrod Eagles s normal, excellent standards No, I blame growl Annunciata I loathe that spoiled, narcissistic, self indulged, self centered, amoral, and thoroughly sybaritic bitch She never grew, never changed, never left behin...

  2. 6 in the Moreland Dynasty series This one, like the last and apparently the next , revolves around Annunciata, a beautiful selfish bitch I guess one of the things I like about this series is that the c...

  3. This is the 6th book in the Morland Dynasty, and my favourite since the first The political intrigue was simple enough for me to understand, and it is now moving into a period I ve never previously studied Keeps an interesting balance between the lives and loves of the Morlands themselves, th...

  4. So glad there are 29 to go.

  6. Regarding the Kindle version The story is good, butBut the editing is atrocious So distracting And sometimes the reader has to stop and guess at what the mis typed words are even supposed to mean I ve been reading the series, and the editing is progressively worse with each book.

  7. The blurb for The Long Shadow is rather misleading It talks about the reign of James II as though that forms the bulk of the book, when it s probably less than the final hundred pages Which in a way is nice, as life for all the Morlands and their connections is better under Charles II than under his brother s four year reign.I will say this book killed any liking I had left for Annunciata Yet again there are few really likeable characters in this series Hugo got on my nerves, and even Elizab The blurb for The Long Shado...

  8. SPOILER ALERT I love the history in the Morland Dynasty series This book disappoints simply because of the way Annunciata is drawn She s depicted as being extremely self centred ,masterful ambitious even by the standards of that particularly difficult period.And a truly atrocious mother Every time she thinks she s found true love every time finds some ridiculous reason to fall out of love in this book.How does one fall in love with a man you helped raise as a child O SPOILER ALERT I love the history in the Morland Dynasty series This book disappoints simply because of the way Annunciata is drawn She s depicted as being extremely self centred ,masterful ambitious even by the standards of that particularly difficult period.And a truly atrocious mother Every time she thinks she s found true love every time finds some ridiculous reason to fall out of love in this book.How does one fall in love with a man you helped raise as a child One admires a charismatic heroine here I felt...

  9. This book covers the Morland family during the end of Charles II s reign, and through the end of his brother James II s reign, ending with the Glorious Revolution As always, I thoroughly enjoyed the family, the characters, and the history unfolding around them This book focuses on Annunciata, though, who is my least favorite Morland woman yet She never really grows or develops as a person, and always seems to want to sleep with inappropriate men I enjoyed it, though, and I m looking forward This book covers the Morland family during the end of Charles II s reign, and through the end of his brother James II s reign, ending with the Glorious Revolution As always, I thoroughly enjoyed the family, the characters, and the history unfold...

  10. Not one of my favourites of this series though in a way it s hard to separate out the individual books This is the second book in which Annunciata plays a major role, and it s hard to sympathise with her when she treats her children so appallingly an...
