Description

During the ‘Halcyon days’, when the world was filled with joy, prosperity and tranquillity, her Greek namesake watched over the Mediterranean Sea, making it calm and safe for sailors.

Daily Mail The Storm Sister is like a literary musical score - crashing waves, staccato heartstopping moments and a crescendo waiting in the wings. Nothing to dislike especially if you like a bit of history, can't believe it took me this long to find them, but at least I don't have to wait for the next one to come out! I'm not sure that I enjoyed Ally's story as much as Maia's, but this is still very solid and entertaining. But be warned this isn’t a book you pick up and read in a couple of hours, it’s one of those stories that demands you pay attention but at the same time you get lost in its pages.The second reason is that I was really hoping the mythology of the Seven Sisters would be further explored in this book but there was big fat zilch about it. When I saw that he was nice to his mom, I thought, maybe I should give him the benefit of the doubt. So Alcyone (Ali), the "Sister of the Wind", from childhood had a penchant for music lessons and excellent musical abilities, but no less loved to sail.

It really did become the background music to my own childhood, as he eulogized about the beauty of the country, especially the magnificent fjords. Loved these girls like a mother and worries about them, and they dont bother to get in touch to say they're OK or to ask for advice or anything.The Storm Sister by Lucinda Riley is book 2 in The Seven Sister series I had great expectations for this one because I absolutely loved the first book 😍 but this one I found didn't really hold my interest for very long. Und auch da war am Ende wieder so ein seltsam-spannender Cliffhanger wie auch schon im ersten Band in Ally's Kapitel.

This novel contains the usual outlandish descriptions, and it would be lovely to harness the power that creates unnecessary fluff, and put it into creating more realistic and complex characters. It’s a little like playing with a Rubik’s Cube – one line fits, but then another falls out of place.

Ich habe früher selber jahrelang klassische Musik im Orchester gespielt und möchte ihre Beschreibungen dahingehend sehr. They are massive beasts of books that probably don't need to be as long as they are, but still, this is infinitely readable and I did love it.

Despite of Ally's POV, the author has given opportunity to her readers to look at the story from their own perspectives. If you have enough sense to recognize a situation as dangerous, don't just get your girlfriend to safety. And it is when she has a forced separation from her love that her story leads to tragedy, just as in the Greek myth. Rushing home to the family mansion on Lake Geneva, each sister is given clues to their place of birth - in this case Norway. There, Ally begins to discover her roots - and how her story is inextricably bound to that of a young unknown singer, Anna Landvik, who lived there over 100 years before, and sang in the first performance of Grieg's iconic music set to Ibsen's play 'Peer Gynt'.Her books have been translated into thirty-seven languages and sold thirty million copies worldwide. The first book of the series,is much more interesting than this but ok i give it three stars since it wasn't that awful. Obwohl ich Ally genauso sympathisch fand wie Maia, hätte ich doch ein bisschen meine Probleme um mit Anna warm zu werden. In Bergen, I had the great pleasure of spending time with Professor Erling Dahl, the foremost expert on Grieg and recipient of the Grieg prize – who showed me around the Edvard Grieg Museum in Troldhaugen.
