Summary

You change the world, but the world changes you too. There is no getting around it. And thus, the simple wish to live changed the life of medical student Aliya irrevocably. Trapped in a body that isn’t hers, and a world in which she does not belong, Aliya has made her decision - she must survive.

Similar to the Middle Ages, but not entirely, Medieval Tale takes place in the dark ages of Ativerna, a universe inhabited by different populations that worship different gods. In this world, women are deprived their voices and their abilities to pursue ambition. There are just five things a woman can be: a daughter, wife, mother, widow, and slut. Women that stand out are burnt on the stake as witches.

Will Aliya be able to counterbalance the darkness with her yearning for life, her bright mind and her confidence, without raising too much suspicion? Something smells fishy in the estate of Earton, and despite Aliya's prudence she attracts both curiosity and jealousy. She is too different from the Lilian everyone knew. Will they discover her truth?

As if dealing with corruption, discontent, famine and devastation weren’t enough, she has to take care of her stepdaughter Miranda, who acts like a spoiled little brat. Lilian is determined; she will not let her authority be undermined.

Silent times make way for a turbulent storm. While Aliya is cleaning the castle of both dust and snitches, her husband the Earl of Earton meets the now widowed Adele. Will he be able to uncover her sinister plans? Meanwhile Prince Richard is allowed to choose his bride. Will princess Anna of Welster succeed in conquering his heart and keep the Jester satisfied?

The saga continues...

Critic reviews

This is a series that the reader can take away something valuable at the end of the day. I love how empowered this makes me feel as a woman, while reminding me the importance and humility, of being kind to others, regardless. Love it!

Good story; fair narrator

The story is good. When the narrator does make voices she sounds like a computer and very monotone.

Outstanding Story!

Wonderful storyline as well as great characterization, this part two of the series is a terrific read. The Audible just adds to the pleasure.

Absolutely Great!

I have read all the books in this series and love the ongoing story of a 21st Century doctor who wakes up in the Middle Ages in another world. When I decided to re-read them, I took a chance and ordered the audible version. I have to say that I was not disappointed. My only disappointment is that the whole series is not yet available from Audible.

Put the kids to bed!

I find myself trying to put my children to bed earlier than usual so I can listen. I haven’t turn on a movie because I prefer to listen to Lina’s book. This is a must listen/read for women who want to become more.

Cool

This 2 nd book is better than the 1st, because the different nucleus of charaters start to connect one to another. The pirates/slavery traffic adventures reminded me of the books "Voyager" (D. Gabaldon - Outlander series) and Queen of Swords ( Sara Donati - Wilderness Series).

Love the series. But where are the other books?

I great series. These book tell a good story from a point of view of a modern woman, but she goes from a normal size woman to a pink whale size. But her brain is her own. I laughed and admired a new author with a new point of view. But where are the other Audible books in this series?

It just get's better!

So I blew by the first book in the first day. Figured heck let me see how many books in the series and noticed that audible has only 2 books while audiobook has 3. So I purchased the second one here. Needless to say it didn't disappoint. The author really does a tremendous job at building up the main character Lilly. Really gets me invested into the story line and how she foreshadows parts of the story is absolutely tremendous. I love the character development and how empathetic she is with folks. Something that doesn't seem to be very popular with others in the book. I love the connection between her and her step daughter.
