    Why I think this book was uite frankly terrible It's set in the 19th century yet the speech and thoughts used by the characters are very modern and uite out of timeplace The heroine is supposedly a feminist which according to this book means she must hate andor resent all men A man wrote this book? You don't say A major part of the plot is that Lilly a female takes on a male persona in order to work for Mr Ambrose This is not a deception he knows the whole time that she is a female and yet he still consistently calls her by her fake male name even in private It's weird There's basically no actual romance in this book So despite the fact that this book was listed in the romance category of the Goodreads Choice Awards don't read this entire book waiting and waiting for romance to eventually become a part of the plot because you are going to be very disappointed There are several chapters that are not about the main protagonists and they are BORING BEYOND BELIEF AND NEVER ENDING No seriously Even positive reviews for this book repeatedly mention how these chapters are the worst You may notice that all the chapters tend to end in a cliffhanger ish way and that would be because this book was written and released one chapter at a time on a website called wattpad where you can still read this book in it's entirety for free Speaking of wattpad since it was originally published on that site this book has not been professionally edited in any way shape or form So lower your expectations accordingly A lack of editing is not always a terrible thing I do love some indie authors who do not have editors but it is definitely a bad thing for this book in particular It could have been cut in half easily and you would have lost nothing of substance If you manage to successfully struggle through reading this entire way way too long because it wasn't edited book you are treated with an ending that is basically a rip off of the Titanic I am not even making that up So if you really want to read a romance novel in a historical setting that isn't believably set in historic times and also does not actually involve any romance then this is the book for you Otherwise you might want to give this book a passThis book has an OBSCENELY INFLATED AVERAGE RATING I would love to show you receipts proving that it's inflated and was not entirely the result of actual individual people rating this book so highly but I can't because unfortunately when I previously did that Goodreads deleted my review because apparently it's a violation of review guidelines They deleted my review twice now in fact Why did they delete my review the second time? Because it turns out I can't even tell you in the comments section what happened because per Goodreads's email to me attempting to circumvent our review guidelines by posting the text of the review in the comments also violates our rules

    “Chains of gold are still chains” After I finished Storm and Silence last night I was overwhelmed with so many different and powerful feelings that I could not utter a single sentence that made sense And now I've been staring at my computer screen for hours and I don't know what to type It's kind of disorienting people Just like the book's finale What's the story? Victorian era balls politics mystery slow burning romance and a brooding and rude male lead I could not possibly ask for Lilly Linton is not your typical lady her story begins when she tries and fails to vote in the elections because she strongly believes in gender euality and despises the idea that a woman's place is at home giving birth to a horde of children always ruled and overshadowed by her master and husband She craves freedom and independence and when she accidentally lands a job as a secretary to the most powerful man in the British Empire she thinks her future is bright But Mr Ambrose is a stubborn and infuriating chauvinist who can't stand her and enjoys torturing her When a document of value is stolen from his possession Lilly finds herself in the middle of a dangerous vendetta and the events that follow endanger her position her life her ideals and worst of all her heart “Life is not about living the safer option Life is about living a life worth living” Pros ➺ The narrative was extremely amusing full of snarky inner dialogues and witty banters that made me chuckle countless times “So we have one thing on our to do list Achieve women's suffrage and get the inventor of solid chocolate bars knighted for his achievements” ➺ It gave me plenty food for thought Every day I wake up attend college study engage in political conversations and it is totally normal something as certain and expected as breathing I forget how many hardships women endured through the ages so that I can take everything for granted how many sacrifices and battles took place so that I can proudly claim that I am eual to any man that I have the same rights and responsibilities Lilly's fights reminded me of that and I am truly grateful➺ The mystery while it unfolded slowly set the bases for some gripping last chapters and agonizing nail biting moments➺ I am uite enad with Mr Ambrose The man was the world's biggest miser with an easy temper and and zero tolerance to anyone who opposed him but I was enchanted by his rare protective considerate and vulnerable moments His harsh lines and rude manners just added to his allure “A manA really manly man with a lot of mannishness in his manliness” ➺ The romance was building slowly but steadily you could feel the tension and the fruitless struggle for control oozing from both Lilly and Mr Ambrose but alas they came to find that the heart does not follow what the mind dictates it sets its own path and burns the readers with anticipation in the process Cons ➺ There were parts where the story dragged on and could be tiring Some scenes were longer than they should and I would have enjoyed it if it was 100 200 pages shorter➺ Lilly could be really annoying at times she had some traits I admired but she could also be so darn naive childish and stubborn when she shouldn't Following orders is not always a bad thing especially when they try to save your life girl And being a feminist doesn't mean you can't develop feelings for a man Gosh I wanted to talk some sense into her thick skullBut nothing mattered after that jaw dropping end Congratulations Mr Thier I had a heart attack and now I can't wait to get the second books in my handsFree copy generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

    425 ‘My little Ifrit’ stars ‘Knowledge is power is time is money’ What does a suffragette and a chauvinist have in common ???? Absolutely nothing BUT it makes for great entertaining reading I enjoyed this in it's entirety because it had a little bit of everything that kept me engaged throughout it's 885 pages It is LONG but it's also very well written that it makes the pages just fly by Lilly Linton aka Mr Linton wants nothing than her freedom to do as she pleases and provide for herself She does not want to rely on a marriage to want for nothing that is just simply moving from one prison to another She wants to be an eual recognized and respected; she just never thought that she would get all that only if she dressed as a man She finds her chance in Mr Ambrose a most infuriating and mysterious man who she hasn't decided yet if she wants to strangle or hugafter all he is the man who will pay her wages I remain Sincerely Yours Miss Lilly LintonAnd incidentally I do not want you as mine sincerely or otherwise Rikkard AmbroseYours as your secretary whether you like it or not Lilly Linton Lucky for Lilly the feeling is mutual if he hadn't given her his word this would be a mute discussion however he is a man who means what he says To bad for him she refuses to do as she is told finding every loophole manageable knowing when to argue and purposely disobeying ever command he decrees ‘You know Mr Linton you have a way of saying “Sir” that makes it sound astonishingly like a synonym for “miserable chauvinist worm”’‘I wonder why that is’ On top of Lily's ongoing campaign for women's rights she has to find a way to save her younger sister form a arranged betrothal she sets her plan in motion to make Mr Ambrose see reason to need her as much as she needs him Yours always Which means you’re not getting rid of me Miss Lilly Linton Storm and Silence is a PG rated book that I had fun with it was witty funny and enlightening Although this took place in the past it was written in a way that can be enjoyed by everyone Their banter their frustration their stubbornness with each other is the main reason that I enjoyed this book It really had a little of everything we got the sweet love story from Lilly's younger sister some spy action and a look into how limited women's rights were Now my only complaint is the ending in a way I am glad there will be but the cliff hanger left me literally with my mouth hanging open Suffice to say I do recommend this read for those who can appreciate the journey and not rush towards a destination I can't wait for the next one ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review uotes above are taken from the ARC version of the book and may differ upon publication

    ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest reviewAfter receiving a reuest from the author to read and review this book I read the description saw all of the positive reviews and decided to give it a go I love historical fiction and wasn’t sure what to expect with this storyMy first reaction when I opened the book up after receiving it? Holy sh% this is a long book I’m talking Outlander long Luckily a long book does not scare me off My second reaction after reading the first chapter? This is not going to be a typical romance and I like itHow to describe the story Well let’s start with the main character Miss Lilly Linton A secret suffragette in 19th century London I likened Lilly to a modern day feminist transported against her will back in time slang attitude and all She seemed to be trapped in a time that didn’t know what to do with her doomed to be enslaved into a life of marriage and children She was funny sarcastic and relentless in her pursuit for “freedom”Mr Rikkard Ambrose was very much like every romance novel’s “asshole boss” but to the extreme He came across as uncaring and often cruel in his dealings with Lilly What I loved about their interactions though was Lilly’s reaction to him She never ceased to throw Mr Ambrose off his game I found their interactions endlessly amusingThis is what I imagine every character’s reactions in the book to be as they were listening to something come out of Lilly’s mouthThe description listed for the book is vague so I won’t give too much of the story away in my review I think it is much better to go into blind I will say that I found life through Lilly’s eyes to be sooo funny I laughed out loud so many times during the story Her reaction to everything in life made me smile and in turn the reactions to Lilly’s antics by all of the characters in the story were hilariousThis was a very engaging read for me Truly I loved every minute of it I loved the way Lilly gave Mr Ambrose a run for his money every time he tried to get his way As the story went on it was great to see Lilly fighting jealousy and growing emotions for Mr Ambrose which went against everything she thought she wanted in life In particular her jealous reaction to a lady Mr Ambrose proclaimed to have feelings for “What was it that caught your fancy? Her figure? Her eyes?’‘Her eyes And her figure too And her dress her manners and her well she does not have anything to catch fancies with but all that she does have is very fancy catching You could say that I have passionately fallen in love with the entirety of her not just the individual components’‘But you like her eyes’‘Yes indeed’‘What is so special about them?’ I demanded to know still not daring to look up I had a suspicion why my eyes were stinging and if it was correct I wanted nothing less than for him to see my face right now ‘I saw nothing extraordinary about them’He cleared his throat again ‘Well they look very very ocular for one thing’‘What is that supposed to mean?’‘Pardon?’‘This word “ocular” What’s that supposed to mean?’‘It is Latin It is a word denoting everything that refers to eyes’‘So what you’re in fact saying is that what’s special about her eyes is that they look very much like eyes” I loved all of Mr Ambrose’s employee’s reactions to Lilly in particular Karim “Gesturing to Karim ‘I can’t let you walk into danger with only him around for protection’The Mohammedan’s eyes bulged and I fancy he would have said something pretty explicit had not Mr Ambrose spoken first” I laughed out loud during every ball held throughout the book and the way Lilly treated all of her would be suitors “A few minutes later a cough distracted me and I looked up only to be confronted with another officer asking me to dance I turned him down like a bedspread And the one after that And the one after the one after that And the other gentlemen who followed from captains to colonels from misters to majors It was amazing the of them I sent packing the seemed to pop up everywhere You’d think that by now they would have gotten the message” Sir Philip and Ella’s story as a backdrop was great What made it truly enjoyable though was Lilly’s sarcastic spin on it She had no patience for Philip’s nonsense nor did she see the world in Ella’s romantic old fashioned way I loved the way she looked out for Ella and shielded her from hurtThough the overall arc of the story centered around mystery and danger of a serious nature Lilly’s exasperated point of view made me giggle through what would have been some very tense momentsThanks so much to the author for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book It was a very enjoyable read Looking forward to seeing how Lilly’s story unfolds and what kind of shenanigans she gets up to in the next book

    A huge thank you to Mr Robert Thier for providing a free Ebook for review Your book was amazing and I can't wait to read from you What did I just read? I am simply amazed with the book that I have no words to express myself I still can't get over this book It feels like I need to recover from all of the adventureWhen I finished this book this is exactly what had happened And then even that was gone and there was only silence I sat there reading the last sentence of the book Storm and Silence by Robert Thier It was 1202 AM and I couldn't get over what I had just read I don't know if I should cry or smile at how awesome the book was but at how it ended I was frozen and stared at my phone I was shocked and I clutched my phone and tried to flip the pages of the Ebook This cannot be the ending no no no no no I need please let there be I thought and continued to flip the pages Then I came across the chapter None Of Your Business and was excited to read a little bit from Rikkard's point of view What are you doing? a voice said from behind me and I jumped A few seconds later I realized that it was my mom She looked at me like I was a crazy person and said Why are you on your phone usually you would stay up and read? I am reading it's an Ebook you could read it on your phone Technology these days anyway are you finished? You have that look on you face that says you are super tired and yet you haven't done anything but read on your phone It's because I have just been on a crazy adventure with awesome characters named Lilly and Rikkard It was so much fu I said but was interrupted It is 12 AM there is no time for adventures and stories I am going to bed and you have an exam to study for It's the day after tomorrow right? Alright you could continue to babble about the book but don't be too long go to bed okay? Although I stay up and read all the time I knew that I had to go to bed and so I went to bed But I couldn't sleep because I couldn't stop thinking about how the book ended What will happen next will all the characters be alright? Are we going on any crazy adventures? Will women be recognized and will Lilly be accepted for who she really is? I need to find out I only slept for 3 hours It was like I couldn't recover from the book I had so many uestions And now I am here and writing this review and I can't wait to hear everyone's thoughts on this book “Knowledge is power is time is money” If you haven't head about this book it is about a girl named Lilly Linton who is a 19 years old who believes that females should be treated as euals Since this book takes place in the 19th century women are not allowed to do many things other then impress men with their beauty go to balls marry and become housewives This book takes place in London and Lilly lives with her aunt and her sisters She has no choice but to follow everything that her aunt says and go to balls that shes hates She wanted to start working so she had a plan After she succeeded in this plan Lilly was the secretary of a really mysterious man named Rikkard Ambrose The only problem was that Mr Ambrose did not want Miss Lilly Linton to work as his secretary He wanted Mr Linton to work as his secretary In other words Lilly had to work as a male secretary “Life is not about living the safer option Life is about living a life worth living” While reading this book people would always ask me why I was laughing and I would tell them about this book and they would give me a weird look IT'S NOT WEIRD TO LAUGH AT A BOOK GOSHMe when I am reading The characters were the highlight to why I loved this book so much I loved Lilly Linton she was so easy to relate to She is so sassy and does not care what other people think She will say what she wants to say whenever she wants to say it But she is strong and brave it made me want to speak out for myself I found her character to be very inspiring because if you know me well I can't speak up for myself and I feel like I will because I will think about the way she does things Rikkard Ambrose on the other hand is so mysterious the guy with ice cold eyes who doesn't show that much emotion The guy who makes you want to know what he is thinking because he is so silent Ella is an amazing sister I loved her character and her side story was kind of like Romeo and Juliet Lilly's aunt was the worst possible nightmare she was one of those characters that you want to hide from Karim is an amazing character too he is really loyal Captain Carter was a character who stood out and I really would like to read about him he is so funny and interestingMe when Lilly's Aunt shows up “I would prefer a sword to fight duel but a pen to plan a war” The introduction to the story wants to keep you reading because it starts off beautifully The writing was awesome and it just keeps me reading I forgot all about the real world because I am so focused on what was happening in the book There were so many things going on and every page had me laughing or scared about what was to come The plot was another strong point and the suspense keeps you reading You want to know what is going on and you want to know about all of the characters “Marriage is supposed to be a union between two euals who love and support each other not a master slave relationship in which the man commands a docile woman” The bonds between the characters was another strong point about why I loved this book so much The bonds made the story realistic The bond between Lilly and Ambrose was hilarious and everything they said to each other made me laugh They were so confused about their feelings and they were always fighting and it was so much fun to read Karim and Ambrose have a strong connection of trust and I like that a lot Lilly and her Aunt have an uneasy relationship and I could see why Lilly and Ella's relationship was so sweet me and my sister don't have a bond as strong as theirs All these bonds were a great addition to the story “Chains of gold are still chains” The setting of this book in the 19th century was really interesting and I loved how it took place in London Women and their beautiful dresses although it was a pain to run in it Men and how they had all the jobs and how women couldn't vote There were so many things that I learned in this book it was like a history lesson filled with entertainment Since I had my History Exam coming up this book helped out a lot “His blue green eyes were dark pools of immeasurable depth pools you could drown yourself in and never again come up for air” The ending was the only part where my heart dropped I know it's a bit dramatic but that's exactly how I felt And if someone were to ask me what I did after I read the ending this is what I would have said “You expect me to come and work for you dressed up as a man?” I gasped” I highly highly recommend this book to everyone It won the People's Choice Award in the Wattys 2015 it is hilarious it has a lot of adventure and perfect amount of romance The pace is perfect there is so much suspense that it kept me reading til the very end with a lot of interruptions from studying and duties I can't wait to read everyone's thoughts on this book “A man A really manly man with a lot of mannishness in his manliness”
