The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee ARC Review


The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue follows a tale of two friends on their grand tour of the 18th century Europe who stumbles upon a magical artifact that leads them from Paris to Venice in a dangerous manhunt and war with pirates.

This book is fun, quirky with an LGBTQ romance and I highly enjoyed this book!!!

I was expecting a lot from this book and I was really surprised by how historically accurate it was!!! The main protagonist Monty was definitely wild and hilarious at times and he goes through tremendous character development in this book and I really liked seeing that by the end of this book!

I also loved the other characters such as Percy and Felicity and the character relationships in this book were so spot on!!! I definitely thought that at times the book was more character driven and plot driven and I'm not complaining;)

I also loved how Mackenzie Lee discussed the political views and the racial views during 18th century Europe!!! It was extremely interesting to see and I can definitely tell that the author did a lot of research beforehand writing this book which is always cool:)

I did think that the story got a little slow at times plot wise which was a tad bit disappointing and I definitely thought that the story could've picked up the pace...but there were few of those moments and the story usually got back on track so that was good:)

That's all I can say about this one!!! I really enjoyed it and it is very historically accurate which is always cool!!! I rate this book a 4/5 stars!!! Make sure to check this book out when it comes out on June 2017!!!
