Book Musings - Apparently, I'm the Infamous Earl's Legendary Bride by Alexia S Praks


Name : Apparently, I'm the Infamous Earl's Legendary Bride 
Author : Alexia S Praks
Genre : Fantasy Romance
Date read : 18, October 2022
Source : Bought on Amazon

Blurb ( taken from Goodreads ) :

What’s a girl to do when she finds herself in a medieval-like world of magic and monsters and is forced to wed an infamous earl? Marries the hunky warrior, of course! Plus saves his citizens, feeds them delectable food, and builds a grand kingdom in the process.

Quinn Chen has her life planned out after university graduation—working in one of the biggest medical research companies and then maybe dating again after a bad breakup. The only problem is on the day of her graduation, she is hit by a truck and wakes up to find herself as eighteen-year-old Quinn Fairchild in a war-torn medieval-like fantastical world full of magic and monsters and is forced to become a bride to an infamous, ruthless, cold-blooded warrior of an earl.

Swept not only into the isolated, strangely beautiful, lush land of Norsewood, but the powerful arms of the piercing blue-eyed Lord Aldric Templeton, Quinn—armed with blessings—must navigate her way through poverty-stricken, dangerous medieval life with a modern mindset and maybe even teach her gorgeous golden-haired husband, who is both kind and gentle and nothing like the merciless character that rumors imply, that having a girl from another world as a bride isn’t so bad after all.

Apparently, I’m the Infamous Earl’s Legendary Bride is a romantic fantasy series featuring a vivacious heroine with a determination to change and improve the lives of civilians in a medieval-like, war-torn world with the use of her modern knowledge and her magic and a hunky hero hell-bent on protecting his land and people and claiming his bride’s love.

This series contains romance, magic, kingdom building, and food and cooking. Oh, and enough steam to fog up the other world’s medieval-era glass window in later books as the story progresses.

Note: A kingdom-building fantasy series involves the protagonist/s working on building and managing their own village, town, city, nation, or even empire and gathering citizens and subordinates. 

Book Musings :

Oh my.. Oh my... the blurb is so perfect! After nearly 2 years of almost no new books read, I was salivating to read this one just because it mentioned kingdom building and well, look at the synopses! What can I say.. except it sounded like a perfect mix of fantasy and romance, two of my favourite genres. 

The beginning was fine but thereafter I got disappointed. Firstly I believe it could have been edited better. Phrases used and repetition got me cringing at times. Secondly I was so disappointed with the way the story went. It was too simple and too overpowered characters with absolutely no layers to them. It felt like a sentence was made into a chapter or an entire chapter was finished in one line. I had seen both happening in this book. 

It was a fluffy quick roll-through-the-words read. I don't think I will continue the series. If there had been more intricacies in the plot and action, my reaction would have been the opposite especially since the author mentions LitRPG in the book!

My one line review : A fluffy quick roll with too simple plot and no action.

My rating : 2.5/5

My reread factor : 1/5
