    0.2 stars. **** Edit I finished this book a while back- years ago really. My review still holds though. **** I'm still reading the book, I haven't finished yet. These series started out so good. But, with each book, the storyline and characters progressively worsened. I started reading because I really liked the concept of the storyline, and the whole idea that a woman was working, or fighting to work, in the ridiculously sexist, and misogynistic society of the 19th century.

I started reading because I really liked the concept of the storyline, and the whole idea that a woman was working, or fighting to work, in the ridiculously sexist, and misogynistic society of the 19th century. And she ends up working for one of the richest, misogynistic tyrant. Lily's, the (female) protagonist, personality and drive to be independent was really great for a 15-16-year-old-me. But as I was going through the books again. while cowardly procrastinating a particularly difficult politics assignment, how absurdly the author has portrayed feminism. Lily constantly says things like 'I am a strong independent woman. I hate men. I would never be with a man because I am a feminist'. This is so disgusting to me, because this kind of portrayal of feminism is what drives people away from feminism. If you are really interested in portraying a feminist character, please have the courtesy to do so in a proper manner. Do you realize how many times I have to clarify that feminism is gender equality- meaning equal rights and treatment of women and men? Furthermore, Lily's character grows dumber and she seems to become more dependent rather than independent. She is constantly portrayed as the inferior character, when the point is, to make them equal. Then there is Rikkard Ambrose. He was a mesmerizing and devilishly charming character for my 15-year-old self. Which is so so so disgusting. He is stoic af and displays literally no emotions. His only display of emotion is ‘little finger twitching’. Why why why are we praising and glorifying an unemotional character? Men and boys already have enough of a hard time talking about their feelings, now we are romanticizing this shit. He is constantly described as ‘granite-faced’. WHAT. THE. FUCK. His face is literally always emotionless, but somehow, Lily is able to read *all* his emotions through his fucking eyes. h o w t h e f u c k ? The worst part about this is that he showed a lot more emotions in the first 2 books. More in the first, than the second. There was this one scene in the ‘In the Eye of the Storm’, where this dude didn’t even sweat. It’s one thing to not show emotions at all, it’s a whole different matter if the dude isn’t even capable of physical human reactions. I can’t tell you how much this aggravates me. In the first book, he had them, he flinched when Lily did some things, he even went as far as jerking away and yelping ‘Oww’, when Lily slapped him. He smiled and laughed when Lily got drunk. He showed emotions. Which is NATURAL for all human beings INCLUDING MEN! Not to be crude, but I’m afraid that the punchline at the end of the book would be that Ambrose is AI in the 19th century. Can you imagine? Especially after the events in ‘Silence Breaking’ Then there’s the whole thing about his possessiveness. His excessive possessiveness is a prime example of a toxic partner. His high-level of jealousy is disgusting, toxic, unhealthy and NOT ROMANTIC. Stop. Romanticizing. Toxic. Behaviour. Constantly manipulating your partner is *not romantic* Can you imagine I have to say that in 2019? Actually, with all that’s going on, it’s probably fitting. These books seem like they are baiting with the whole concept and ideology of encouraging ‘feminism’, when it’s, in fact, promoting toxic gender roles. I know that this is a historical romance fiction novel(s), and I get the need to be historically accurate. But I refuse to believe that, even in the 19th century- especially in the 19th century- men were that emotionless. I think men were probably more emotional back then- I mean they got their feelings hurt if they weren’t given the opportunity to be ‘gentlemanly’. I am not saying that the author is a bad writer. He is a good writer, but it feels like he was trying to assert a certain personality for the characters and ended up royally fucking up. He has restrained his characters so much, to the point that instead of developing, they seem to be decaying. Worsening. Whatever is the opposite of character development. This storyline had great potential, but now we’re just dragging it on to appease 12-16-year-old girls. And they aren’t particularly getting a good example of a ‘good relationship’. So, author, I hope you do better, and take this as constructive criticism.

    I wish I could give this book less than a 1. I suffered through weekly installments of this story for MONTHS because I’d already invested so much time into these characters that I just NEEDED to know what would happen to them. (Mostly, after their painfully slow burn romance, I finally wanted to see Lilly and Mr. Ambrose get married.) I’m disappointed by how dragged out everything was and that with so much time to wrap everything up, I still feel like the actual ending was rushed.

    It's getting tedious. Feels like story is dragging with nonsense crap/fight between Rickkard and Lilly. And Rickkard showing no emotions is getting tedious. It's getting tedious.

    As always, in this novel like in the previous installments of the Storm and Silence saga, this novel combines wit with romance and familial/work relationships, all held together by a complex heroine trying to find independence in a patriarchal, Victorian world.

Although this final novel in the saga is yet to be completed, I highly recommend it, along with the rest of the series, to anyone who enjoys historical romance, strong female characters (who have bigger concerns than their marriage prospects), and bitting humour. This series is perfect for anyone who loves female characters who don't take no for an answer and stand up for what they believe in despite the barriers in their path.

    After reading every book and waiting every week for a new chapter to come out, I feel like it was anti-climatic. Really disappointed at the ending. After all that waiting and anticipation .... It was basically pointless. I expected so much more.

    Loved this book series. I would love to read anything and everything if the author ever decides to continue with these characters. Lilly has truly been one of my favorite characters ever and her amazing humor and way of looking at life will always make me smile. That girl is truly crazy and fantastic. Love her!!!

    So this is it... One of my favourite series has come to an end 😭😭😭😭😭 Tbh, this one was not my fave, there wasn't that many action as the first ones but at least there were some challenges Ambrose and Lilly had to face. Also, Lilly stayed true to her beliefs like she did during the entire series and I adore her for it. I'm still doubtful to read the spin off about Amy (I wanted one about Adaira), but I will surely miss the characters and this amazing story that made me a feminist 😍😍 So this is it...

    This book is as good as the rest of the series. Very cute still. However, when being compared to the previous books, it seems to lack something that didn't really motivates me to continue reading. It is overall a good book.

    I loved this series so much and I cannot believe it's the end. Thank God Sir Rob said he is considering doing something more with my favourite characters. There is no Male lead like Mr. Rikkard Ambrose. In all the books I've read before, none would even come close. And Lily was his perfect counterpart. Amazing books with amazing plots and an awesome finale. What more could a book nerd ask for? I loved this series so much and I cannot believe it's the end.

    I've been following this series since we first met Mr Ambrose on Wattpad back in 2016 This series started off REALLY good but with each book started to feel like it dragged on quite a bit. The 'filler' chapters increased and the plot dragged on. I still really liked the series but think it could've been condensed rather easily.

    Eeeh the best ending for a series! It was torture waiting for a chapter every Wednesday with all the damn cliffhangers but it was definitely worth it. This was as amazing as all the other books and I'm so so sad this is the end. I've had the best time with these characters and following all the adventures of Lilly and Mr. Ambrose. Absolutely adore them! And I can never get enough of them. I've laughed and smiled so many times during this book! Way more than I think I've ever done.

    I couldn’t even finish reading because there is no book available on kinder and not all chapters are available at Watapp. The plot is dragging so much that I don’t even know if I want to finish. I feel like all the building up romance was for nothing... really disappointing.

    Ok. Where should I start, first of all, this is not only a one book review but I’ll consider this a review of the whole series so it might be a little bit too much. Starting with the good things first: ⁃Feminist book = perfect book. It kinda made me happy knowing that women of the old time had gone through that and still reached such high level in their journey, even tho women still face obstacles of inequality till this day. But if someone can go from dresses being the only option to whatever the Ok.

I don’t know how to hate and love and adore and admire someone at the same time. I’m all in for the character development and the character development I’m all in. ⁃The fact that this story sheds light on family, friendships, voyages, discoveries and so much more is so exciting and entertaining + the wedding was portrayed in the best way possible ! - The historical facts are SO ON POINT AND REAL AND THATS A LOT OF HARD WORK RIGHT THERE. To the bad things now: ⁃I think 6 books is slightly too much for this series, I mean a trilogy would’ve been perfect. I felt like book#3 was totally useless, hate me people but its a free country I can say whatever I feel like saying. ⁃There’s this idiom in my country that goes along the lines of “ something in too much is the same as in too less” so back to book#3, and don’t get me wrong people I’m all in for feminism in this book I think it’s its best feature, but I couldn’t decipher it as feminism right in that jungle book. I don’t know maybe its just me but it was too much and too lame so I really didn’t vibe with it.

    I think this is the only book from the Storm and Silence series that I'm giving a written review, so I'll do my best to be all encompassing. I found this series on Wattpad about 4 (I think it's been that long) years ago. Wattpad for those of you who don't know is a free reading/creative writing app that allows anyone to publish stories they have written for others to read and comment on, not every story is good but when I stumble on one like this you can't help but devour it.

And that's exactly what I did, I devoured this series. The enemies to lovers has always been a favorite of mine but it was made even better by having the setting around the 1800s (I think, around that time frame but it's before woman's right to vote in the United Kingdom). So it's full of balls and petticoats which I adore. But that's not all, it also has two spite fire characters that are wickedly smart. Storm of Bells is the last book in this series and although I enjoyed every moment of it I will say it seemed like a "fluff" read compared to the others. But this is most likely because it's about the wedding which is always "fluffy" for romance characters. Overall I loved this series so much so I have bought some of the series (and will continue to do so tell they are done) on Amazon to show my support for Robert Thier (aka; Sir Rob).I highly recommend you to either download Wattpad and read it for free or buy a cheap Kindle addition if you can. As always... Enjoy!

It had merely started hinting at the source and beginning of the Ambrose empire, but it ended. The plot just ended abruptly in the middle with "happily-ever-after". It was not closure for the readers or the characters. It was just abrupt and wham-bam-that's it. It was gentle, you will be expecting more chapters since it was an on-going series, but it's just like "that's-it" folks!

    Very disappointing. Lily is an immature idiot. Rikkard is still cold. I felt it was just too boring, too annoying to finish. So I didn't, I couldn't. The first book of the series was absolutely wonderful, the others weren't bad. We have this massive slow burn, interlaced with their stolen kisses, the heat going up and up with each book. Only for their sex scene to be completely unmentioned in the previous book. If that's not a slap on a face for a reader, I dunno what is. This book is their wedding Very disappointing.

And you would assume that with age and time passing by with each book, our mc would be smarter, more mature, wiser. Well, spoiler alert, she isn't. In fact, she turns more stupid, more immature, more annoying. The constant pranks, the never-ending teasing her husband-to-be, childish games, her exhausting stubbornness. Is that really a feminist? Suffragettes would be laughing in her face. Maybe the day will come when I finish this book. Maybe. I don't think I'm ready for that now.

Definitely will be reading more of Sir Rob’s work...

So am I ready to let these characters go? Hell no. But I'm so thankful that I was able to read this many books about this amazing, amazing couple- I will forever love this series (I know I'm being quite sappy, but I really do love it). I'm so glad that I was able to go on this adventure with Mr. Ambrose and Lilly- until next time.

    Tbh this book was rather disappointing to me. I just felt that how the plot about Lord Dalgliesh ended was rather abrupt. According to me it was pretty lame. So much fuss was created about that perticular lord since the beginning and it ended up in the worst way possible. There were certain points in the book, of which It didn't seem to haveany importance in the building of the story. It was an utter mess.
