EUGENIE, cherished only orange-tree plot book of Comte de Talcy, is brought up amid the splendours and luxuries of Versaille and the Ancient Regime. But in Paris erupts into revolution and terror; her father's untimely death alone cheats the guillotine, orange-tree plot book Eugenie is forced to flee for her life/5(22).

The Orange Tree plot is, like all her books, very well researched but compared to her other books is very light weight. It is a fairly short book and would make a good holiday read but I don't feel it is of the same standard as her other books.4/5(6).

A plot is afoot to kidnap her and take her back to Paris and the guillotine. St Osyth might save her, but she will not ask him, and turns elsewhere for help.

Not one, but two counter plots develop, with potentially disastrous results. Eugenie, cherished only child of Comte de Talcy, is brought up amid the splendours and luxuries of Versaille and the Ancient Regime. But in Paris erupts into revolution and terror; her father's untimely death alone cheats the guillotine, and Eugenie is forced to flee for her life.

Kindle AZW file. Ead seems to be a servant in the court of Sabran, Queen of Inys, but she is actually a member of the Priory of the Orange Tree, a secret organization of mages that is sworn to kill dragons.

Sabran is descended from a warrior who had battled a horrific dragon known as the Nameless One. In the West, the narrative is presented by Ead - a handmaiden to Queen Sabran the IX, and Loth - a lord and close frien.

The Priory of the Orange Tree is an epic fantasy jewel of a novel. It features terrific characters, stunning set-pieces and a brilliantly crafted grand and picturesque world.

It was such a pleasure to read The Bee and the Orange Tree, the second novel by acclaimed author, Melissa Ashley. Set inunder the gaze of three women, Melissa Ashley takes us back to Paris, where a woman could write and perform stories within literary saloons, but have no agency whatsoever over their own life/5(63).

She is an orphaned mage from the Priory of the Orange Tree who is sent to infiltrate the Inysh Court to protect Sabran the Ninth. When we meet her in the story she is assassinating cut throats that are attempting to kill Sabran.

Cara asks Frances one day during a lazy picnic. Cara is a sweet and flighty doe, the embodiment of the inner child, capitalizing on coy innocence tinged with forlorn melancholy. Peter is her charming, handsome protector, completely unaware (or completely uninterested) of the effect he has on the opposite sex/5(K).

An Amazon Best Book of March Samantha Shannon’s latest, The Priory of the Orange Tree, is a compelling high fantasy novel, filled to the brim with dragons, dueling religions, magic, and political intrigue. Shannon’s strength is breathing new life into the genre with a cadre of richly-imagined, powerful women at the center of this unforgettable fantasy world/5().

Pre-publication book reviews and features keeping readers and industry influencers in the know since MY SWEET ORANGE TREE. and a jumpy plot that tries to pack too much into too small a space leave the story lacking.

This is not a story of friendship but of how trauma can forge a bond—albeit a weak and questionable one—if only. In her first standalone fantasy novel, best-selling author Samantha Shannon takes a stab at creating something epic with her tale of clashing cultures, dragons, and a thousand-year-old prophecy coming to fruition.

“Despite that rushed feeling as the story enters its second half, The Priory of the Orange Tree is a fascinating epic fantasy set in a rich, well-developed world.” A capsule summary of this book's plot would make it sound like a thousand other epic fantasies: a thousand years ago, a terrible dragon called the Nameless One tried to destroy the world, but was imprisoned; soon he will return.

A world divided. A queendom without an heir. An ancient enemy awakens. The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. There’s too much plot, too many characters, too little excitement and adventure, and because of that it’s hellishly boring.

Fun fact: The only plot I enjoyed was the retrieving of Ascalon. It was fast, and interesting, easy to follow. About 50 pages of fun creepy questing in the middle of an anti-adventure that was this book.

The Bee and the Orange Tree (L'Orangier et l'Abeille) is a French literary fairy tale by Madame d'Aulnoy. Synopsis. After many childless years, a king and queen had a daughter, whom they named Aimée. Unfortunately, a ship she was on, wrecked. As fate would have it, she drifted ashore in her cradle.

This plot had the same mouthfeel as Lord of the Rings or the Belgariad or the Wheel of Time. If you’ve not read any of those older books, then chances are you’ll really like this book because this is a tried-and-true plot with a lot of resonance. If you have read those books, you might still enjoy this (like I did), or you might not.
