Under A Cloud – The Rival Courts, Book 2, by Luv Lubker

Meet familiar faces of friends and foes as in this second installment of The Rival Courts.

Vicky’s father, Albert, the Prince Consort, has just died, leaving them under a heavy cloud of grief, without their dearest friend and advisor, at a most critical time: The political horizon grows dark with storm clouds at the entry of Bismarck to Germany’s political stage in 1862.

Will Fritz’s courage stand the test as he confronts the spider in its web? Is Prussia really fighting for the rights of the Schleswig people, or is so much blood being shed for the sake of Prussia’s aggrandizement?

Join Vicky and Fritz on their journeys under the blue, cloudless skies of the Mediterranean to the peaceful heather-clad hills of the Highlands of Scotland; to the burning heat of the North African desert to the raging blizzards of a winter war in Denmark.

When Vicky’s closest friend disappears, will she be able to keep the secret?

Will old enemies prove to be friends, and old friends prove to be enemies?

  1. Ella

    A brilliant follow on from ‘Under A Spell’ – not only do we get to follow our favourite couple and their children. But we also get a deeper glimpse into the lives of side characters as well!

    Lubker has a great talent of marking you love and hate characters at the same time. With this new instalment to the story, I now feel even more conflicted than ever about almost every character in this series.

    I read this book far too quickly because the chapters captured my interest too much! The dangerous sub plot in this story becomes more apparent with every chapter and leaves you wanting more.

    This book will have you reading all night.

    Can’t wait for the next instalment!

    The second instalment of The Rival Courts sees the focus shift more to political matters and unrest in Europe. The arrival of Bismark places further tension on the relationship between Fritz and the king as he, along with the council, try to enforce their objective and influence over the Palace. It chronicles Fritz’s journey into War and his and Vicky’s travels through the Mediterranean and beyond, both of which capture your senses and allows you to experience it with them. The secondary narratives are a welcomed addition, especially seeing more of Marianne and her children and their lives under the rule of Fritz Karl. This book highlights sides to characters that we have not witnessed before and gives you a greater empathy for those first judged irredeemable. A compelling read.
