I read it for the first time as a teenager, and I plan on reading it again, but I know I ll be reswept off my feet all over again: Aug 07, majstoricamagije rated it it was amazing Shelves: Love, intrigue, history, folklore, crime Nera and Sinisa are one of the most romantic couples these areas. It is only sad that no one has ever thought to make a movie or series – well, that would be a soap opera that everyone watched!

Nov 18, S. Abbo rated it it was amazing. Verovatno sada ako, tj. Jan 10, Marija rated it really liked it. I read these books a few years ago and really loved them. Yes, it has a LOT of cliches, but still, i loved the historical context and the brutal realistic tone, and got especially attached with the character of Josip.
I never knew a lot about that particular part of history, so i learned quite a lot from these books. Also, i really appreciated the reporter-style of writing of Zagorka. Jul 15, Marijana rated it it was amazing. She is my favourite author ever!
These books are awsome! Maybe last book is a bit unnecessary in my opinionit could easily be over with 6th book but we got even more than what we wanted: I recommend it to anyone who likes reading historical, politics, and most of all, great love stories: Jul 02, Gabika rated it it was amazing.
I liked it so much. It was easy to read and so relaxing, but not boring!

I expected some light romance almost sillybut this book was hundred times better. I recommend it to everybody who is looking for good historical adventurous romantic book. Definitely not a light romance, as I was expecting.
There indeed are several love stories, but they fit perfectly into the big plan of the horrors of Inquisition and misogyny of the time. I think I have learned more about grucka historical period from these books than from any history lesson.
Sep 27, Maria Nikic rated it it was amazing. One word describes the series. Once you start reading them, you wont be able to stop until you reach the end.

Many of her works have been adapted to film. She was born in the village of Negovec near Vrbovec, to a well-standing family, which allowed her a good education, but in spite of her talent and many gifts, her parents decided to end her education early and, soon after leaving school, married her off to a man whom she barely knew, a Hungarian railway clerk 18 years her senior.
The marriage ended abruptly with her escape from the house, first to Sremska Mitrovica and then to Zagreb, due to her husband’s and mother-in-law’s abuse. It was in Zagreb that she began her career as a journalist, which was a highly unusual career for a woman in those days, and because of that, she was frowned upon, humiliated and prejudiced against her entire life. She was forced to write anonymously, under pseudonyms that hid her gender, and hide herself at work so nobody would notice there was a woman writing for and later running a newspaper.
This didn’t stop her from being politically involved, fighting against the Germanization and Magyarization of Croatia, and fighting for the rights of women, which caused her considerable problems in life, both professionally and privately. Urged by Bishop Strossmayer, Zagorka began writing historic novels, usually set in 16th, 17th and 18th century Croatia.
The critics and her colleagues, however, constantly put her down, ridiculed her work, slurred her as a person and as a writer, and deliberately ignored her in literary magazines and almanacs.
Upon the formation of Independent State of Croatia, the magazine “Hrvatica” was forcibly canceled and her entire estate is taken from her, leaving her without means to support herself. Desperate, Zagorka attempted suicide, but luckily survived. Despite her age and weak health, she continued fighting for the rights of women, even though it earned her the ridicule and animosity of her male colleagues, who repeatedly called her “a madwoman” and “mannish old hag”, until the day of her death.
None of her novels have been translated into English, but two are available in German: The exact number of the novels she has written is unknown, but it is presumed that she wrote around 35, some of which are lost forever.
