with both smarts and an athletic body Her life seems perfect until she finds herself in a fatal car accident Instead of dying, however, she wakes up in a completely different body in the middle of a half ruined castle during alternate medieval times Confused and dismayed, Aliya realizes she was given a second chance in life so she rolls up her sleeves and gets to work on restoring the castle and her new life Aliya s situation is confusing and challenging Reborn as Countess Lilian Earton, she has to adjust to an unfamiliar world while trying to introduce everyday conveniences from the world she knows Her first goal is taking care of the collapsing estate of Earton and its inhabitants and learning to navigate a society unused to a woman in charge Constant attacks of robbers and slave traders never seem to stop plaguing Aliya, and killers and spies sent by the narcissistic aristocracy are just waiting for her to show a bit of weakness so that they can strike, even if as she finds an alternative solution to her troubles, developing alliances with the Highlanders and Vikings called the Virmans In the meantime, she is terrified with the prospect of finally meeting her perpetually absent husband whom, incidentally, Aliya has never seen ever since her rebirth as Lilian Her plan is to make the best of her unusual circumstances and to change this alternate world for the better She is not a girl in trouble waiting for a knight in shining armor all that Aliya has to do, she ll do with her own hands First Lessons is the opening book of the bestselling historical romance and time travel fantasy series A Medieval Tale by Lina J Potter The heroine finds herself in the alternate world at the very beginning of a thorny path to progress and happiness On top of everything, she has to go up against the unprogressive and sexist society of the Middle Ages, armed only with her knowledge, experience, and willpower Still, Aliya Lilian has to act carefully in order not to draw too much attention to her innovations she knows she could either get praised for her genius or be accused of witchcraft The bestselling time travel and historical romance A Medieval Tale series has been carefully translated into English and already gained a strong English speaking fan base A book, I so wanted to love but I failed My 2 star rating is not so much for the author but is awarded to her

story is one I love I am for one a fan of the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon and love the historical fiction books by Sharon Penman.What I look for in a fiction book is simple Romance, Action, humour or a combination of them The author failed on all accounts and concentratedon the development of gadgets, such as making inkwells and clasps for earrings and a rigid weight loss scheme.The main character is cold She just lost her parents and her own body in a car accident and her new persona whose body she possesses in the medieval setting has lost her baby I would be devastated but not Aliya Lilian She isconcerned about the pink colour of the walls, her overweight body and her pink dresses.The book has an open ending which would not be a problem if at least something in the story has come to a conclusion Maybe Lilian meeting her estranged husband would have been a good one but no, this is probably happening in book 2 I suspect that the book could be a good one if a lot of unnecessary info gets scrapped The entire series can be concentrated in one volume and you probably end up with a good read Have you ever wondered what you would do if you suddenly would be transported to a place in the past while you had all your modern knowledge In this Russian fantasy novel medical student Aliya dies in a carcrash and then somehow wakes up in another body in another world that is very much like our Middle Ages.This Russian novel is a bit different At first I thought it was a story meant for highschool students but nevertheless was so attracted by the synopsis I volunteered to review The thing is Have you ever wondered what you would do if you suddenly would be transported to a place in the past while you had all your modern knowledge In this Russian fantasy novel medical student Aliya dies in a carcrash and then somehow wakes up in another body in another world that is very much like our Middle Ages.This Russian novel is a bit different At first I thought it was a story meant for highschool students but nevertheless was so attracted by the synopsis I volunteered to review The thing is that although the heroine is a medical student I think the targeted readers might be found in 18 Not that the story is steamy it is not No because of the serious way the whole situation is handled.In most timetravel stories people just blend in If there is the fact that they knowthan the people surrounding them then it is in that they know the future It is not so much that they would share advanced technology Here there is no knowledge of the future it is a different world not the past But Aliya now countess Lilian has a wide share of knowledge how to make things and how to cure people and she sets off to monetise that and improve her village It made me wonder what I would do and I realised my knowledge is not suitable at all in a situation like that I am a lawyer.So what to say about this novel The writer is very apt in worldbuilding The world described sounds real Countess Lilian lives in a would with many similarities to medieval Europe You recognise the Vikings, the Jews and the Arabs, but the church is just different Laws are different And similar.Sometimes the writing style seems a bit different to me but that might be because it is a Russian novel that is translated Things like that can somehow show different cultures of writing styles It is not annoying.The book really has potential to be great but seems to break off just when the stage is set for action I would advice to publish it together with part 2 I expect there is one I think it will be received better that way Lots of the better fantasy stories are heavy tomes that has the reader reading for days on end so there is no need to cut the story into different volumes Now we end up with a clever exercise how to keep yourself afloat in the Middle Ages and we see storm brewing on the horizon but the thunderclaps have not been heard yet All the action has yet to come.It could be done like this if this part would be for free but when you want to charge a fee I think customers might grumble because it feels like you are reading a good book and suddenly someone grabs it and takes it away.PS I really liked the fact that the heroine is a heavy set lady who kicks ass I am no feather either It s the candy, not the wrapper, that matters And it s the person you live with, not their good looks This book reminded me a lot of Game of thrones mixed with the tv show Reign who has a modern woman running an Count s estate There was humor, political intrigue, backstabbing, and entertaining adventures similar to the shows above My only only issue i had with this story and its a big issue in my opinion is the jumping from perspective to perspective in the middle of a chapter without warn It s the candy, not the wrapper, that matters And it s the person you live with, not their good looks This book reminded me a lot of Game of thrones mixed with the tv show Reign who has a modern woman running an Count s estate There was humor, political intrigue, backstabbing, and entertaining adventures similar to the shows above My only only issue i had with this story and its a big issue in my opinion is the jumping from perspective to perspective in the middle of a chapter without warning I really got annoyed with that especially when we were in one place one paragraph to be moved to a completely different place and a different character without warning at least be divided by chapters or let the reader know whats going on Because of this i give this book a 4 out of 5 stars i really enjoyed this and cannot wait for It s the candy, not the wrapper, that matters And it s the person you live with, not their good looks Aliya wakes up in another body in a different time period after she dies in a car crash Her former life as a medical student is gone and now she is Lilian Earton Countess of Earton In a whole new world Aliya has to get used to the medieval thinking and at the same time try to find people who can invent the items that already exists in our world.Lina J Potter gives us a story like no one I It s the candy, not the wrapper, that matters And it s the person you live with, not their good looks Aliya wakes up in another body in a different time period after she dies in a car crash Her former life as a medical student is gone and now she is Lilian Earton Countess of Earton In a whole new world Aliya has to get used to the medieval thinking and at the same time try to find people who can invent the items that already exists in our world.Lina J Potter gives us a story like no one I ve read before were a strong female character slowly changes the world she s living in Lilian might not have been the kindest person but with her authority and Aliyas intelligent mind, a great unique woman is in the spotlight I m so happy that LitWorld s lithuntersph Orisha o.orisha reached out to me and asked me if I wanted to read some of Lina s work because I m pretty sure that this series will get even better and better as it continues The only negative thing I have to say about the book is that Aliya s comments about Lilians body sometimes gets a little bit too much and was very close to fat shaming That s something I m really against and don t like at all But after living in Lilian s body for a while she seems to realize that she is beautiful, even though she hasfat on her body than she did in her former body First Lessons by Lina J Potter gets 4 5 stars Now if you ll excuse me I m gonna read the next book You can find this review a creative picture with the book included over at my Instagram sannareads Fun writer, fun storyI thought this was a time travel novel but discovered it was a fantasy The characters are very interesting both in motivation and action There s plenty of room for deviance from historical development and events because it s an earth like world but not the middle ages earth.The story moved fast and some would probably say too fast I would agree with them but in the main character s situation, I would probably do the same or something similar The dangers from poor hygiene Fun writer, fun storyI thought this was a time travel novel but discovered it was a fantasy The characters are very interesting both in motivation and action There s plenty of room for deviance from historical development and events because it s an earth like world but not the middle ages earth.The story moved fast and some would probably say too fast I would agree with them but in the main character s situation, I would probably do the same or something similar The dangers from poor hygiene, poor diet, lack of medical knowledge and stifling of innovation are very powerful drivers for making change as quickly as feasible for the sake of survival.Since this isn t Medieval Europe, the power of the guilds and the rise of the early cities doesn t have to be mirrored too closely in this world That said, between the charging ahead by the main character and the lack of opposition to changes in merchant goods, farming and other things, the story does speed along almost too fast to develop many of the characters.On balance, it s a fast fun read in a plausible universe and the series could be very entertaining This is a good story with terrible editing, confusing at times The author jumps from one character to another in a shockingly abrupt manner The only thing that kept me reading was the story, it s a good one, the main character is pragmatic and has determination Nevertheless, I would read book 2, I like the story.
