My Lady Zane… where do I begin? Why don’t I start my review by writing that My Lady Zane is one of the most unique, moving and thrilling novels I have ever read that combines excellent themes such as love, action and of course the military. I have read many military books but none quite like My Lady Zane and I will explain why.
My Lady Zane is a novel that is mostly a story within a story in which the reader will follow the protagonist of the story as she attempts a dangerous journey while serving in the Iraqi desert. The book, however, has a historical love story weaved throughout the book thanks to letters the protagonist is sent by her grandmother so yes… a truly unique but sensational story! Before I decide to read a book, I like to read reviews for it to see what fellow readers are writing and all of the reviews on Amazon are VERY positive… we are talking five stars book lovers! But one attribute I did notice is that none of them described the plot! Now that I have finished the book I can see why readers have not attempted this because the plot is thick and multi-layered (yet still brilliant) and the description alone is around 500 hundred words. So! That is why I will attempt to describe the plot for you today book lovers in simple terms so you can read more about this gem of a story!
My Lazy Zane will introduce the reader to the heroine of the story called Leah Ann Sullivan who also happens to be a Sergeant in the Marines. In 2003 Sergeant Lee is sent letters from her grandmother, and these letters contain a beautiful but heart-wrenching story about lost love and difficulty in the 17thcentury. The story is moving and multi-layered with many themes laced throughout it so if you adore moving romance-esque stories then well, you will love the book! The main plot of the book, however, is not just about this story (although it does influence the exceptional protagonist massively), it is actually about Sergeant Lee Ann Sullivan who has to uncover a deadly enemy who has been killing fellow Marines. The reader will follow Sergeant Lee on her mission to uncover the truth and protect herself and her loyal team. The journey will be full of danger and fast, action-packed moments but also a theme of love is weaved throughout Sergeant Lee’s story, and if you, who like me is a sucker for romance then you will adore this factor!
Now book lovers I hope so much that I explained this well for you! If you however need some more information on the plot then comment below, and I will get back to you. The story of My Lady Zane is exceptional and I want to be very vocal about this and express this to many readers. It is very rare that one) the reader will get to experience a romance military book, but it is also rare that two) the book follows a female protagonist who is also a Marine Sergeant! This is incredibly rare to find in a military book, so already I take my hat off to the exceptional author Steven M. Sullivan for exploring this throughout his book; it is brave and I admire that quality in a writer.
Steven M. Sullivan is a talented writer who clearly has experience with writing, but you will be surprised to know that this is his debut book! When I discovered this, I was honestly shocked because never would I think it was because the descriptions are glorious and so vivid that the reader will be able to picture every moment and event that unfolds throughout the story. Not only am I am impressed with the level of skill in Sullivan’s literature but also his plot development and the evolution of the story. The story within the story was a brilliant idea and kept me intrigued from beginning to end. Never before have I been so entertained with a military book. Sullivan ensures that his readers are entertained with phenomenal descriptions, excellent story development and of course flawless characterization.
As My Lady Zane is an exceptional, thrilling and brilliant book that will entertain and delight readers from beginning to end I, of course, have to award this incredible book five stars! So please book lovers, have a read of Steven M. Sullivan’s debut novel and when you do make sure to leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads because the smallest reviews help authors so much!
Thank you so much for reading book lovers! I appreciate it so much and love discussing wonderful books with all of you so please, comment below and let me know your thoughts on My Lady Zane; do you see yourself reading this book? Let me know all of those brilliant thoughts of yours below! Thank you so much again for reading!
