As I was introduced to the new series, "The Uprising," I was intrigued by the depth of the novel's actual synopsis. Sadly my interest did not hold for long. I do not like to think of any novel as a bad read and yet this material was closely related to such a suggestion.
Since it is only fair to accept some of the blame myself I had not read the previous book in this series and that lead to sudden confusion throughout this book. I had no clue what was going on throughout much of this story and that only seemed to annoy me the more I read. I do not think the author did a good job at keeping the newer reader up to date on the story with the squeal and therefore I immensely suggest reading the first book in the series prior to "A Forest of Wolves."
Also, the whole love triangle that is seeming to develop in this novel didn't really workout. The romance is running about the pages along with the random plot. I feel like this entire book is out of order and pure chaos, there was little to no descriptive details and honestly I do not plan to read more from this series.
However in the future I may give the author another try as I do not believe one series defines a writer's career.
In a few short weeks seventeen-year-old Mila has gone from being Ludmila Novakova, pampered daughter of the High Chancellor of Bohemia, to becoming a traitor escaping the palace at midnight in her wedding nightgown. Her country is in chaos, an army is marching from Austria, and revolution is a breath away.
Mila is caught in the middle, between the man she loves—Marc, the son of a blacksmith and a leader of the rebellion—and the murderer the Church calls her husband. Even as she flees with Marc into the heart of the resistance, where the suspicions of angry citizens make her every palace-born habit a danger, she knows he hasn’t told her everything.
But Mila is keeping the biggest secret herself: she is the heir to the throne, the daughter of embattled King Rudolf and Princess of Bohemia. The truth will turn the fury of both sides against her, leaving Mila alone to win her country’s freedom—and her own . . .
