    Epub Katie Hickman å The Aviary Gate PDF Å The Aviary PDF \ å aviary ebok, gate mobile, The Aviary ebok, The Aviary Gate EpubOh I couldn't give this book anything other than a 5 star rating it has everything I enjoy in a great read An historical 'romance' I've put the romance in inverted commas because it's not a typical romance with a HEA but rather a romance in the victorian sense of the word Beautifully writen it captured my imagination right from the start I love this time period 16th Century but not from an Elizabethan angle infact I find that period of 'English' history uite boring no it's the Venetian and Ottoman settings I love I also love anything that includes Astronomy maths and mathematical instruments and this story is full of the stuff plus there's intrigue and mystery I also like stories which have an element of reincarnation or sixth sense So this was ideal for me The Avairy Gate is beautifully written set in the Topkapi Harem Constantinople and Modern day Oxford and Istantbul it's a lovely story that spans the centuries From the begining I got
