Henry VIII's Tudor court meets time traveling teen assassins in a riveting YA novelTwins Charlie and Alex Taylor are the newest time travelers recruited to the Forty Eight a clandestine military group in charge of manipulating history The brothers arrive in 1536 feeling confident but the Tudor court is not all banuets and merri. RATING 25e ARC provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest reviewI’m having a hard time figuring out how I feel about this I was hooked for the first 30% but towards the middle I started losing interest The ending was uite predictable There wasn’t any suspense or anticipation which made the reading experience really underwhelming CharactersWe have the twins Charlie and Alex aka the time writers; Alice a newbie time writer and friend of the twins; Margaret a girl trying to survive in the Tudor court; Henry Tudor King of England; Anne Boleyn second wife of Henry and ueen of England and last but not least Jane Seymour the king’s new lover I liked the introduction of each character You can instantly identify different character traits in each personality Charlie is serious and a little bit shy while Alex is cheerful and outspoken Henry VIII was known for being selfish childish and impulsive which is exactly how he was portrayed here As for Anne Boleyn she was supposedly high maintenance ambitious and arrogant The author showed a softer side of her and I liked that I didn’t care much for Margaret and Jane though I did like Jane’s interactions with Charlie PlotIn theory the plot sounds interesting I’m not a big fan of time travel but my obsession with the Tudors pushed me to give this a try I don’t regret reading it but it was sort of disappointing The author tried to incorporate too many obstaclessetbacks and it didn’t work The book lacked action and intensity the pacing was off and it was kinda dull In conclusion this had potential but for me it didn’t work out

Disclaimer I received this free book from the publisher This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honestI adored the concept of The 48 from the first page There's nothing I love than historical fiction meets science fiction I mean can you blame me Not only that but the fact that we are reading about this story from alternating perspectives gives the whole book a well rounded feel There are layers upon layers of intrigue and mystery It really never stops And you get so caught up from the beginning
