    2.5 stars The writing style and dialogue was extremely dry The first half which details their trip to Dawson City was really boring I thought that would be the exciting part, but it wasn t until Anna reached Dawson City and the drama between her and her fiance ensued that the plot started to pick up the pace moving slow rather than dragging There was a small twist at 65% on a kindle but it the plot still continued to be dull..it isn t until 86% that anything of great interest occurs 2.5 stars The writing style and dialogue was extremely dry The first half which details their trip to Dawson City was really boring I thought that would be the exciting part, but it wasn t until Anna reached Dawson City and the drama between her and her fiance ensued that the plot started to pick up the pace moving slow rather than dragging There was a small twist at 65% on a kindle but it the plot still continued to be dull..it isn t until 86...

    A simple read I was expectingfrom this because I loved White Rose Black Forest This took place in the brutal and lawless area of the Yukon in the late 1800 s Klondike gold rush, of which I wasn t aware of I enjoyed the historical aspect The plot line was sort of predictable I m glad I read it though

    The thing is His history sucks It s a fine and exciting novel, but he should have at least visited the area before he wrote about it What do we require of an author Maybe I m being unfair But this particular bit of history means too much to just let it go.

    Not what I expectedThis was a waste of time Stupid and farfetched at best Vile and not reflecting the timeframe I would be embarrassed to share among my friends.

    I ve never read anything about the Klondike gold strike of 1897 so those aspects of the story were really interesting especially getting there The romance part was ok but I thought the way the author ended it was a little flimsy.

    I loved the depiction of life in the Klondike at the turn of the century the author really painted a vivid picture But the story and characters just lacked oomph for me.
