Soldiers Pregnancy Protocol uHad to struggle through annnecessary series of selfish decisions that puts everyone at risk searching for Ceony She s supposed to be a hard working intelligent young woman but she takes stupid risks and goes on and on about her crush throughout the book I felt her character had the opportunity to grow get stronger and hone her craft but instead she gets lucky against some brutal bad guys while having a teenage crush Not going to read the last book as I ve just lost interest and ceased caring about Ceony Ok So Overall this is a light fun read It s fluff but I read the first book and that s exactly what I expected a fun romp in 19th century England magic What I did NOT expect was the blatant *racism that happened early onAcross the street however one person did stand out * that happened early onAcross the street however one person did stand out wore normal clothes but his dark skin contrasted with the rest of the bystanders He was a tall man Indian or perhaps Arab His dark eyes met heres and then the crowd filled in and he vanished from sightCeony sucked in a deep breath What decent person would look askance at a foreigner even if he
Had Been Looking Her Way been looking her way of foreigners lived in England Delilah was a foreigner for heavens sake Ceony s mother would be appalled if she knew Ceony suspected a man merely because he was differentAt this point I stopped reading and said to myself please tell me that you didn t really just do that And then I thought maybe Ceony will redeem herself Maybe by the end of the book Ceony will have learned a valuable lesson about the evils of racial profilingBut no As it turns out Ceony s assumption of guilt entirely on the basis of skin color turns out to be completely justified Because not only is this Indian man a bad guy but he s a really bad guy The kind who murders every child at an orphanage just for fun And sure it s not against the rules to have POC who are villains But when this is the only POC in the entire series sorry no That s not ok Yes her friend Delilah is a foreigner too She s French And white With blond hair Which means that Ceony s suspicion of foreigners is all about skin color and has fuck all to do with country of originThat s not the only issue that this book has It s just the one that pissed me off the most The studentteacher romance is weird at best I found myself rolling my eyes on than one occasion when Ceony flushed because Emery looks at her touches her etc Ceony spends a lot of this book flushing and frankly it gets annoying And then there s the Harry Potter complex that she develops in this BOOK AND THEN THERE S THE And then there s the that Holmberg wraps p the book by breaking all of the magic rules that she established in the first bookSo in short Nope I m out I won t be finishing the series and I will never give Charlie Holmberg another penny of my money.
