I loved this series I swear. View all 9 comments. This is only the first book which I didn't know prior to finishing this one, because I didn't expect the publishers to divide the story , so I do not know yet how the story ends.
The characters are definitely two-dimensional and, at times, so exasperating, that you want to hit them on the head with a frying pan, but the story still grabs you and doesn't let go until you reach the end. I've already ordered the next book, because I do not want to wait too long to finish the story and I want to start reading "The Witch of Grich" series. Oct 10, Barbara rated it it was amazing.
As a true patriot and lover of my homeland Croatia, I was very sceptic about this book because it's commonly known anything Croatian sucks ass. But oh boy, was I wrong. This book is in TOP 10 best books I've read this year! The plot was extremely intense, mysterious and inte As a true patriot and lover of my homeland Croatia, I was very sceptic about this book because it's commonly known anything Croatian sucks ass. The plot was extremely intense, mysterious and interesting.
I couldn't put the book down! The characters were all so unique, funny and interesting. I was a bit of annoyed of everyone "speaking in riddles" and the constant misunderstandings in the book because of it.. One more thing, I came to this book because of witches So you can imagine my disappointment when there was none. But despite that huge disappointment, I still enjoyed this book and I think that says alot.
Highly recommending this book to my fellow Croatians, and if it's translated in any other languages please pick it up guys. Aug 07, majstoricamagije rated it it was amazing Shelves: my-favourite , zagorka , cro. Through the characters we can very well find out how the relationship between people of that time work out.
We learn how the Church functioned. Zagorka speaks about the position of women in society as a true feminist - a person who is fighting for the equality of people. The book can serve as a real history books, and her romansiranost gives her extra points and grace, because it is not aggressive as today's women's literature in this region, and yet clearly speak what she wants and how society should work.
Sep 18, Nicol rated it liked it Shelves: plot-twist. I feel very conflicted. On one hand, it was not my cup of tea. The characters were sometimes utterly stupid and it was just too damn long and I had problems to orientate among the characters and the storylines because they were dumped at me all at once. It come 3.
It comes from deep friendship and of course, I am a sucker for a "disguise romance" hello, Ashes in the Wind. Also, Zagorka is really good in crafting stories and mysteries that are intervowen so much you sometimes don't realise it until the end.
Wasn't so hellbend on eternal reflections and descriptions, so the plot moved forward pretty quickly. She was such a vicious character. Also, I very much felt Zagorka's feminism of that time seeping in, and the question of women's position in society. I applaud. Perfect for the train :D good for my Croatian practice :. I totally missed this one while I was growing.
OK, the storyline is about everything you get here cause the characterization is really really poor. However it is a page turner which kept me awake while I was rushing through its cca pages. Apr 24, Paula rated it it was amazing. Read it multiple times, incredible story :. Great thing about this book is that it is really easy to read and it kind of drags you into the story. It would be even better if the characters weren't so shallow.
Sep 10, Marta Krznar rated it it was amazing. Perfect,amazing author,amazing writing. Love the way history facts are combined with fiction. Absolutely loved the whole series. I want to read it all over again!!! There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Readers also enjoyed. Many of her works have been adapted to film. She was born in the village of Negovec near Vrbovec, to a well-standing family, which allowed her a good education, but in spite of her talent and many gifts, her parents decided to end her education early and, soon after leaving school, married her off to a man whom she barely knew, a Hungarian railway clerk 18 years her senior.
The marriage ended abruptly with her escape from the house, first to Sremska Mitrovica and then to Zagreb, due to her husband's and mother-in-law's abuse.
It was in Zagreb that she began her career as a journalist, which was a highly unusual career for a woman in those days, and because of that, she was frowned upon, humiliated and prejudiced against her entire life. She was forced to write anonymously, under pseudonyms that hid her gender, and hide herself at work so nobody would notice there was a woman writing for and later running a newspaper.
This didn't stop her from being politically involved, fighting against the Germanization and Magyarization of Croatia, and fighting for the rights of women, which caused her considerable problems in life, both professionally and privately. Urged by Bishop Strossmayer, Zagorka began writing historic novels, usually set in 16th, 17th and 18th century Croatia.
The critics and her colleagues, however, constantly put her down, ridiculed her work, slurred her as a person and as a writer, and deliberately ignored her in literary magazines and almanacs. Upon the formation of Independent State of Croatia, the magazine "Hrvatica" was forcibly canceled and her entire estate is taken from her, leaving her without means to support herself.
Desperate, Zagorka attempted suicide, but luckily survived. Despite her age and weak health, she continued fighting for the rights of women, even though it earned her the ridicule and animosity of her male colleagues, who repeatedly called her "a madwoman" and "mannish old hag", until the day of her death.
The exact number of the novels she has written is unknown, but it is presumed that she wrote around 35, some of which are lost forever. Other books in the series.
