Jennifer McGowan s Maid of Honor series is an underrated series that I think deserves love Each book features a different protagonist, but the main storyline is connected I really enjoyed the first two books in the series, but I was especially looking forward to Sophia s story in Maid of Wonder While I found this installment to be lacking in certain areas, I still thought it was a decent addition to the series.Sophia has always been the most intriguing character out of all of Queen Elizabeth s [...]
Coming into Maid of Wonder, I was nervous Sophia has been my least favorite maid since book one, not because she was hateful but because I found her boring Plus, I was seriously skeptical of her plot line Still, I hoped that the romance would be adorable and the plot would surprise me Sadly, this is one of those cases where my fears came 100% true I still liked parts of Maid of Wonder, but it was slower and less delightful than the others.I m all for historical fantasy or historical paranormal d [...]
I was bursting at the seams to read Sophia s story McGowan has been building up to Sophia s burgeoning powers since the beginning In the previous books, Sophia was portrayed as a weak and fragile girl with no power to control her overwhelming gift But now she is stronger, a mystical warrior McGowan has created such flawed and complicated characters The other maids make less appearances in this installment, but Sophia constantly reminds herself of the bond between her and them I appreciate how Qu [...]
3.5 stars Not my favorite maid, but still an enjoyable read The final 30 pages really ratcheted up my interest and now I wish the next book was about Sophia Originally posted on Small ReviewThe first two books in this series, Maid of Secrets and Maid of Deception, were much better than this book But, I expected that The first book follows Meg I like Meg She s feisty, theatrical, dramatic, and a super spy The second book follows Beatrice I like Beatrice She s a mean girl with heart, and all the s [...]
There s a cover And its BEAUTIFUL
Maybe slightly less Bit disappointed in this one I felt bored, disconnected for the majority of the book And don t get me started on the romance Hopefully the next one will be better
I liked the previous book in the series, but disliked this book so much that I doubt I ll bother looking for the first In Maid of Secrets, I thought Sophia was an interesting character In this book it was hard to form an opinion.I expected her story to have closure than it did In the previous book, the maids discovered the truth about Sophia s family, so i had hoped to see her father make an appearance here Even if he d only been a footnote to the plot Then there s the alleged love story Marcus [...]
Rating 3.6 5After reading the first two books of this series, naturally, I wanted to get the third one off my plate as well I must say though, that while the world that McGowan had made and maintained in the first two books is upheld quite well, at the same time, in this book, things get a little shaky, and thus, the rating for this is the lowest, in my view.Sophia is by far the Maid of Honor with the most intrigue, seeing as the extent of her gifts as a Seer were really vague as far as descript [...]
I am a little sad and confused, not by the wonderful book I just finished, but with how things ended I felt like there were so many loose threads and then I learn that this is the last in the series What happens to Meg, Beatrice, Sophia, Jane, and Anna Why do Jane and Anna not have their own stories to tell Will there be to come, or has the theme of publishing trilogies cut this story short I want answers people I need to read .
I liked this book much like the others due to it being set in Queen Elizabeth s court, but I wasn t a fan of the whole sight ability Not my favorite of the series, but still well written.
Good series but have grown tired of the story thread Will try this again at a later date.
To be honest, I don t get why they re still serving Elizabeth I hope to keep reading and find out.
Death always starts as a whisper If you haven t read the first two books in this series Maid of Secrets 1 and Maid of Deception 2 then I highly recommend them This series follows five Maids of Honor in Queen Elizabeth s court Each book tells the story of a different girl, although it is best to read them in order.I had been eagerly anticipating Maid of Wonder ever since I put down Maid of Deception, Sophia, the narrator of this book, is a psychic She can go into trances and ask angels questions [...]
Originally posted on City of BooksSo for starters, I love everything about this series the history, the danger, the mystery Maid of Wonder is no exception, and though it wasn t as fast paced or riveting as the previous two books, I enjoyed it a lot.Sophia s gifts have developed quite a lot since the last book, when they were just emerging Now, she sees visions of the future and can communicate with the angels But Sophia is still a novice, and her increasingly frequent visits to the other side of [...]
I really enjoyed the first two books in this series, though I will say the first book Maid of Secrets is my favorite.I was excited to read Sophia s story Mostly because we barely get to see her in Meg s book Maid of Secrets and she has a slightly important role in Beatrice s book Maid of Deception but that only left me wanting to know about her She seemed a little crazy because she would always be staring into space, and when she would speak, it was mostly in riddles So, of course, I wanted to [...]
Maid of Wonder is different from the other books in the Maids of Honor series because of the bigger paranormal element Sophia has the ability to commune with beings she calls angels Since her encounter with the gypsies she has been using an obsidian stone to help her focus her visions Sophia has been trying to keep her growing gift under wraps for her safety and because she still doesn t have the clarity she needs to interpret what she experiences After a prophecy is given concerning death at Wi [...]
I have been loving this Elizabethan Romance series for its characters, humor, and history Each book adds another dimension to the historical period in European power struggles among countries and Church Each book also adds to the understanding of the individual Maid characters Maid of Honors are spies who serve Queen Elizabeth Sophia s story in MAID OF WONDER was different than the previous Maid of Honor stories It lacked the humor and took a dark ominous tone But in many ways the author, Jennif [...]
I just finished this book I love the series, stumbled upon it from an daily deal This is the weakest book in the series to much ethereal, angel material that didn t really move the story The mystery is a bit weak as well I wanted about the times, but this book could have been in any time period for how much she referenced the time period yes we have some bits but much of the book is Sophia in the angel realm The other world that Sophia ventures into is beyond frustrating and the author goes on [...]
The Maids of Honor series is a fascinating and brilliant mixture of historical fact and fiction, but the latest installment, Maid of Wonder, elevates the series further by adding fantasy into the mix While talents of the two young women that the first two novels Maid of Secrets and Maid of Deception each focused on Meg and Beatrice are quite within the boundaries of natural talents deception and emotional manipulation, respectively , Sophia s talents are decidedly supernatural Blessed or perhaps [...]
Honestly, I didn t like this book as much as the previous two, and it s hard to put into words why Part of it might be that with Sophia as the main character, and the focus on her abilities, the book was very narrow, perspective wise There was a lot less court intrigue going on in the forefront, and way less of the other girls, and I missed that Also I just found Queen Elizabeth and Walsingham and Cecil evil awful and horrible in this book I know none of them were NICE people, but in these book [...]
Jennifer McGowan is a truly gifted, hardworking author It really shows in her Maids of Honor series As a fan of the real Queen Elizabeth I got hooked on her style from very first in the series Maid of Secrets She develops well thought out, strong female characters that I quickly became interested in and cared about.In Maid of Wonder, the author tackles the daunting task of convincing the reader of metaphysical abilities of the main character, Sophia She succeeds Fantastic scenes lend themselves [...]
This book was phenomenal I enjoyed every page I turned This is a remarkable historical read that captured me from beginning to end I love how the author makes each book about a certain maid of honor This book is about Sophia Dee We get the chance to get to know her and how she became part of the Queen s court I love the idea of being back in a time period when corsets, long dresses, and parties are forever going on I feel as if I lived this time period in another life, because I am addicted and [...]
Not sure that I like Sophia as much as I like some of the others She s a spacey girl and she definitely falls in insta love She reminds me of the kind of kid you protect, so I understand the feelings of the other maids about her.It s a fun story that has Sophia back and forth between the physical world and the angelic realm, but also has poisons poisoners, loyalties, and The Questionners Elizabeth is hard and mercurial, but also pretty likeable in this book.I thought the idea of a royal bastard [...]
This wasn t as good as the first one, but it still was pretty good I wasn t too taken, at first, with the idea of Sophia s story, but I really liked it once I got into it I really want to read a story for Anna and Jane each I also want to find out about Master James This book left me with quite a few questions that I really want answered another book I want to see action between Jane and Master James.
From the very first book I have been hooked on Elizabeth s Maids of Honor Beatrice s story had me worried for a moment, I felt it dragged on in some moments but Sophia s story had a completely different feel to it I enjoyed the paranormal aspect of it, along with the focus being about the schemes against the crown instead of the men Now I m very curious about who the next book will be about.Will it be the Mind or the Assassin
I m really enjoying this series and I can t wait to see what other adventures we are taken on Although I didn t like this one as much as the first one, it s still a good book Check out my full review at thewritethingsand
So this one seemed to be a bit of a departure from the other two books in the series, despite the same set of characters and the same setting I think it was my least fave of the three I ve read so far.
For the last book in the Maids of Honor trilogy, this one let me down Not that it wasn t good, but Sophia s character I think is kind of boring and all the talk about her visions in the angelic realm were confusing Still an exciting read, but it didn t live up to books one or two.
This book is all from the point of view of Sophia She is the one with the psychic powers so you would think she would have the most interesting story but I have actually enjoyed the first two books This one isn t bad just not the most interesting.
How do you serve a the crown when at any moment you could be seen as a witch That is Sophia s dilemma waiting for her ability to come to its own and not burning at the stake How will the queen use this seer into the angelic realm and what will her role be to the queen of England
