Hi everyone! This is Julia of The Broke and the Bookish, formerly blogging on my own at The Competitive Bibliomaniac.
I read mostly historical romance, but can often be found reviewing paranormal romance, young adult books (mostly distopian/fantasy), fantasy/sci-fi, classics, and the occasional non-fiction book about languages.
Feel free to follow and reblog!

Yes. It is very safe to say that I am really enjoying this one. And I am a little bit more okay with the plots at this point because I think they are all going to come together well, if I have predicted everything correctly. Maybe not though.
Also, I really like these two characters. They aren't typical hero and heroine, not even for the Maiden lane series. Love it!

Thanks be to the heavens! Maybe we'll say the Grecian gods to go with the heroine's name in this story (Artemis... and yes she does have a twin named Apollo). Why am I thanking the heavens? Well, this story had the potential to be very similar to the last two, a statement I lamented in my last update. But, rejoice! It isn't. It has a completely different plot and concept, one that robbed me of my sleep last night. It is suffering a bit from too many plots, like these last Maiden Lane books have. But overall I am enjoying it, which is quite a relief from being lukewarm at best on the last book and mildly entertained from the one before that. Hopefully I can finish tonight and it doesn't keep me up super late.

Damn it! This is series is so convoluted I have forgotten what happened in the last book nor if it even mattered to what happened in this book. All I remember is the last two books were a rehash of each other and my biggest fear is this is the third book in that rehash. We shall see.
