Rings of Passage


Rings of Passage, A Time Travel Novel with Richard III, Karla Tipton
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance, Sci-fi and fantasy

This reminded me a bit of the Susanna Kearslsey novels I used to enjoy. Its a solid read, fun and well planned and I liked the characters – always love some good Bad people in a book, and there’s plenty here. The foray into the past was fun and I felt as is I was there with Anise. Sometimes it feels too much as if its playacting – but here I really felt as if Anise was back in time. Its interesting too the paradox of Richard 3rd where will still don’t know exactly what happened to the princes. Here Karla uses magic to explain their deaths, and there’s a thread of magic through the whole novel.
What didn’t work for me was the sheer number of rings involved, and which ones did or didn’t have magic. That just made the plots confused for me, though of course it did provide convenient  solutions to the problems poor Anise and Richard had found themselves in!  a little too slick for me though, I lie my people to have to work a little harder for the right ending. I didn’t really follow either the story of her parents and the situations they were in, there was a tenuous connection but I didn’t really see the relevance of much of the present day story to what happened to Anise in the past. Its a fin read, easy to follow and for those who love historical romances its something fun and a bit different but for me its a one off read.
Stars: Four, a good read though I’m unlikely to re read.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
