Synopsis

The Last Killiney, the first book in The Ravenna Evans Series.

On holiday in England, Ravenna Evans begins to recall her past life as an eighteenth-century Irish viscount’s lover. When she is swept back in time to relive this affair (along with Lord Killiney’s very unwilling modern counterpart), she learns that living in the past isn’t all fun and games, and that history can’t always be changed to one’s liking.

Did not like the title

The book was excellent. Really exciting in parts. But, a little slow to go in others. Almost making you wonder what some of the characters were needed for. But it was a good read. Thank you.

A very intriguing book this is a story of the very fine line between love and hate and it almost draws you into its web you get the feeling you are sitting on the edge waiting to see what will happen next. A deeply profound love story with lots of twists and turns. Loved it

I love this book I have read it countless times. It is captivating and inspiring. It will take you to the darkest depths of your soul but make you smile like a fool. It is so easy to get caught up in the book, I just wish the sequels were free as well. One of the greatest novels I have read in well.. forever.

Amazing read
April 22nd, 2014
This book captured me from the beginning. It also took me for a wild ride and it didn't go anywhere I thought it would in the beginning. I was always thinking the story was going one way an it would flip it up on me. It also had the wonderful aspects of a good read, betrayal, love, fights, and even time travel.

This is the BEST romance I have ever read! Literally could not the book down, I had to see what was going to happen next! This story is soulful, exciting, enticing, and seductive! The story line flows well, and leaves the reader questioning what is going to happen next! This is an easy read, and perfect for anyone looking for an adventure, anyone looking for a touch of romance, for history buffs, and for anyone looking for a book they don't want to put down!

Plot is better than the writing
September 11th, 2013
The reason I kept reading this book was for the plot. It was different, confusing and engaging enough for me to overlook the faults. I cringed at the writing style and inconsistencies I discovered in characters and the authors voice. I'm a sucker for historical fiction, and would recommend for anyone looking for the genre with a twist.

Tedious

This book is tough to read. It goes on and on. Things are left unfinished while other details are obsessed upon. Jame's love for Ravenna seems beyond brotherly. Needs a good edit and maybe a rewrite.

I began reading this book and very quickly developed a compulsion to keep reading. I found myself at certain moments holding my breath, sitting on the edge of my seat, growling/grumbling in anger/frustration and laughing my head off. This is a book that you can loose yourself in.

Not for the faint of heart.
June 28th, 2013
A delicious blend of tangible fantasy, heart-rending drama, neverputdownability and romance to make you pine for a fraction of it. And language and pace to match. I wish the protagonist had been described more eloquently, as the rest of the characters have been, but I suppose since the book is written from her point of view, it makes sense that she wasn't. All-in-all, a most surprisingly fantastic read. Don't read it if you don't like to really FEEL.

It was amazing!
June 3rd, 2013
Oh my lord, this was the best book that I have ever read! I was enrapt in this book, with all of my spare time being devoted to reading it over a 48 hour period, and when I had no spare time, it was all I could think of! I was so engrossed in this book that I found myself dreaming of being the main character and feeling what the main character felt, and I can't think of another book that has done so, and due to this fact, I found myself crying when the main character was as well as rejoicing when they were. This book is an artwork and my favourite book that I have read throughout my life.

The storyline was interesting from the beginning. There was an area towards the beginning that dragged somewhat and I almost put the book aside. I am so glad I stayed with this book. The characters are vivid and I became completely engrossed. The Last Killiney is a wonderful story filled with emotions. I can't wait to start on book 2.

I was pulled into the plot and story line and quickly swept away by the story! I enjoyed it so much I sought the author on Facebook to tell her! I hope to find and read the following two books in the series to see what becomes of the time travelers and hope to read from the perspectives of Elizabeth and killieny, were they switched at the same time as Ravenna and paul?

Overall a bit of a weird plot and as long as you don't take it too seriously (there are quite a few areas where the etiquette and rules of the time are not thought about) this book is a great read. The main characters had me hooked and I couldn't put this down once I had started :-) I will read it again

Disjointed
January 9th, 2013
I read this to the end because I was very keen to know what happened. Which is a good thing abut a book. But I was a bit confused with the jumping around between worlds and ages at the start that I didn't enjoy the story as much as I would have liked. It felt a bit too obvious in places and it was frustrating to think that our strong, clever leading lady could be so daft as to not work it out; it made her character disjointed for me. Not a terrible read but not the best.

This story is so good, and is written to a very high standard, which is why it has a lot of drama in it. Every page is a joy to read, and a page turner I have read this book many times, and it still hooks me in just like the first time I read it. It has a great storyline, and the pages are filled with beautiful words, which describe it perfectly ( DEFINITELY ONE TO READ!) ( ps: Should be a film ??) ?????
