    Triangles and Twist a Tale this WeavesHave you ever read a story and started with a set of characters only to find out they were not really the characters to follow all along They were actually the reason for the main characters after all This is what you will find in the story titled Aldric and Anneliese written by Harry E Gilleland, Jr Another interesting part of the story that always amazes me when I read things like this is the amount of arranged marriages that took place during the ti Triangles and Twist a Tale this WeavesHave you ever read a story and started with a set of characters only to find out they were not really the characters to follow all along They were actually the reason for the main characters after all This is what you will find in the story titled Aldric and Anneliese written by Harry E Gilleland, Jr Another interesting part of the story that always amazes me when I read things like this is the amount of arranged marriages that took place during the timeframes mentioned Even though they shouldn t be any they are still happening even at the time of today Back then it was always to gain power, land or to stop the battle These were things that people would actually depend on for their survival on Of course the money that was exchanged never hurt the royal facilities As with any tale of the times, there must always be someone striving to be King and Reinhardt in this story delivers by preparing his son for the roll His son is promised as part of an arranged marriage to a woman Ursula he is not fond of or at least this is what he remembers When this Then you must have a protector who will die for the new King because of principle and his only purpose in life is to protect this individual He Aldric is considered the protector, the conqueror, the fighter and the warrior There must be a bad guy, and that is Deitmar, Ursula s brother Once you have all of these characters in play you have to follow the story to see which one takes a turn They all take turns and then you take sides The author does well with the mystery, the love, the turmoil and the reactions of the audience It is a quick read and because it is a page turner you will most likely read it over again do to the moving parts of the story I like the fact that it catches the eyes of the young and old and can keep the interest of both Lady Anneliese is the one that takes Aldric s interest and revives his purpose again giving this a nice piece to read in the story This is a real neat story, the details are wonderful and the author keeps you engaged I hope to seeof this type of work from Gilleland

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this little book Its a historical epic without all the excess details, it is straight to the point, only 168 pages A few parts of the book felt a little rushed or brushed over but I think the Author did it that way on purpose to keep it short The characters were well done and I felt I knew them even in such a short book.The book, to me, is about redemption and forgiveness I did despise Ursula through the whole book though I thought for sure she was pulling the w I thoroughly enjoyed reading this little book Its a historical epic without all the excess details, it is straight to the point, only 168 pages A few parts of the book felt a little rushed or brushed over but I think the Author did it that way on purpose to keep it short The characters were well done and I felt I knew them even in such a short book.The book, to me, is about redemption and forgiveness I did despise Ursula through the whole book though I thought for sure she was pulling the wool over Aldrics eyes until the very end I loved the ending although Aldric did make his mind up very quickly to trust and forgive her, which I found a little unrealistic Nevertheless I enjoyed the book and would read others by this Author.Thank You for the chance to read it You should write another like this only 4 times the size

    I thought the plot of this book sounded interesting so I bought a copy of this book Unfortunately I don t really care for it and will probably donate it to our local library I didn t really care for the story because it wasof a tragedy than a romance, but it wasn t bad enough to get only one star I think it deserves something between 2 and 3 stars but closer to 2 The plot of this book was okay, but I don t care for tragedies even if they end up happy at the end Also I didn t like the I thought the plot of this book sounded interesting so I bought a copy of this book Unfortunately I don t really care for it and will probably donate it to our local library I didn t really care for the story because it wasof a tragedy than a romance, but it wasn t bad enough to get only one star I think it deserves something between 2 and 3 stars but closer to 2 The plot of this book was okay, but I don t care for tragedies even if they end up happy at the end Also I didn t like the graphic sexual content in the first 20 pages It s a short quick read but not one that I would read again

    Nothing great here to write about This is a novella so character development is kept to a bare minimum IMO Aldric started off as a hero in the beginning but then failed me at the end to discuss would be a major spoiler.The plot runs along the lines of chivalric hero avenging the murder of his sovereign He turns bitter and meets Anneliese who makes him feel human again.The plot itself could have such potential but as I said, in a novella the writer is almost limited in what he can produce S Nothing great here to write about This is a novella so character development is kept to a bare minimum IMO Aldric started off as a hero in the beginning but then failed me at the end to discuss would be a major spoiler.The plot runs along the lines of chivalric hero avenging the murder of his sovereign He turns bitter and meets Anneliese who makes him feel human again.The plot itself could have such potential but as I said, in a novella the writer is almost limited in what he can produce So, the ensuing action that does develop within the plot of the story is rushed and unfulfilling Overall sophomoric writing and lukewarm character development
