    Susan Krinard Can Do Better

    I found this book disappointing. I know S. Krinard can do better. I had a hard time getting through this book. It was slow and the characters were too stiff. It was only at the end did the story speed up. Donal and Cordelia deserve each other because the stiff formality they employ would irritate anybody else. There was no passion, no heat. I would definitely not recommend this particular book.

    In 1847 England, Donal Fleming can easily talk with the animals, but struggles to communicate in any way with humans. Donal understands what animals say and has used his talent by becoming a veterinarian to ease their aches, pains, and somewhat concerns. This need to ease the burden of the beasts places Donal in consistent trouble especially with those mortals who mistreat animals.--------------- Cousins Theodora and Cordelia Hardcastle tour the new Zoological gardens in Regent¿s Park along with other Zoological Society fellows. While most visitors including Theodora are in awe, Cordelia is concerned as she has seen the animals in their natural habitat. When Cordelia calms down a rogue elephant at the same time that Donal also soothes the maligned beast, they meet for the first time. The attraction is obvious, but it their mutual love and respect for the animal kingdom that brings them together. Now Donal must choose between human love and his destiny as the LORD OF THE BEASTS.---------------- The sequel to THE FOREST LORD, LORD OF THE BEASTS is a superb Victorian romance with some fantasy elements that delightfully enhance the prime story line of two animal lovers falling in love. Donal and Cordelia are wonderful protagonists but ironically as their love grows it brings out the beast in him forcing the hero to choose between his ¿powers¿ and his desires. Susan Krinard provides an enchanting historical with a touch of the whimsical to the delight of readers.------------------ Harriet Klausner

    Not her best

    Perhaps I expected a lot more to this sequel because the previous book was so fantastic. I did not feel any chemistry between Donal and Cordelia, they didn't even spend much time in each others presence to develop much of a relationship. I didn't find Cordelia's character to be very likable at all, she was very arrogant and quite irritating, so much so that I actually wanted Donal to return to Tir-Na-Nog (not saying whether he did or not). I just think this book could have been made a hundred times better. It was definitely not a page turner, and took me quite some time to get through.
