Synopsis: Living abroad, Adela Tilden has avoided the worst of the rebellion. But now that King William has ordered her back on risk of disinheritance, it doesn’t seem she’ll be able to stay out of the tumult. Of course, Adela has never abided being a pawn.With two men ahead of her, and one left behind, she has to hope she can control this game–or else she might lose her life. Between books 1 and 2 of the Broken Line series, The Copper Rebellion is a glimpse into Antony and Adela’s lost years after The Copper Witch.
Okay so first up I have to say this cover is so beautiful, each of the covers so far have been so pretty but I think by far this is my favorite one. So as you can see by my rating up above I highly enjoyed. Even though it had Adela Tilden in it again and I didn't much like her in the first one there was enough going on that it kept it interesting.
This book is really about; how many licks does it take to get to the center of the tootsie pop... ahem I mean how many guys does one have to sleep with in order to confuse enough of them into thinking that the unborn child might be theirs and in order for Adela to feel safe. In this novella Adella is still as insufferable as ever just like she was in the first book. I guess though she has grown on me a little because it didn't bother me to much or not enough to deter away from the plot. I have read the second book before reading this so I was curious as to who the real father was. You definitely find out the answer, but I won't say anymore on that here.
This novella really pieces together what happened between book one and two and how everything got so messed up. I do believe she really did do what she had to, for her. She could have always chosen to stay and be with Antony, but of course she is to ambitious for that and easily bored. I also thought it was interesting how Adela thought she was getting old at age 18. Even back in those days that is still young, she had many years ahead of her of beauty still and if she kept taking good care of herself many more after that. But to her she couldn't see beyond that, couldn't see past what she thought of herself I think.
Overall I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read the third book The Paper Masque's which is out already and what I am currently about to read.
