The Priory of the Orange Tree
The Priory of the Orange Tree | Samantha Shannon
From the internationally bestselling author of The Bone Season, a trailblazing, epic high fantasy about a world on the brink of war with dragons--and the women who must lead the fight to save it. A world divided. A queendom without an heir. An ancient enemy awakens. The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction--but assassins are getting closer to her door. Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic. Across the dark sea, Tan has trained all her life to be a dragonrider, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel. Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.

It‘s good, but I don‘t think it‘s great in comparison to works by Kuang, Kay or Jemisin. It‘s formulaic and I don‘t really like that in the fantasy books I really like. One thing I liked is that it got me thinking about why the roles of women have been so marginalized in history. I determined it‘s because children are so labor intensive and often fatal for women throughout history. It will probably change if we don‘t destroy ourselves first.

This is your sign to read this big, beautiful, epic fantasy, full of adventure, court machinations, sapphic love, battles, pirates, plague, secret identities, and yes—TWO KINDS OF DRAGONS! I put off reading Priory of the Orange Tree because of its daunting size but listen—no matter how many pages you have ahead of you, this richly imagined, beautifully told, narratively satisfying, and emotionally exciting book will still be over much too soon.

Truly there are no adequate words to describe this book except for perhaps engrossing. High fantasy fiction at its best. This is such a page turner and the various characters and storylines manage to be woven into 804 pages of reading magic. #blqsummerreadingchallenge #yellowcover #chunksterchallenge

DinoMom I have had this on my shelf for so long! I keep picking it up and then putting it back because it is such a chunkster! Lol . Need to read it soon 5mo
KristiAhlers @DinoMom right? It‘s over 800 pages! BUT the story is so very good. One of my friends who works at a bookstore recommended it to me and I sat and read a few pages before I committed. One London Fog tea later I was over 100 pages in and committed! 5mo

Mehso-so

Well, friends, #unpopularopinion here... I think this one is a bit overrated. I understand the appeal and actually did enjoy the majority of this book. It's a sweeping tale with a lot of interesting concepts and ideas. I was engaged in the story for the most part, and intrigued to see where various parts of the story were headed. But around page 600 I realized that I actually still didn't really like any of the characters. All of them are just ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) so self-absorbed. Even when they are doing things for the “greater good” it‘s actually still just for their personal gain. Ead, who was probably the most likable out of the bunch, is still really doing things so she can be with her lover. Niclays was thoroughly unlikable, and his lover from the past, whom we visit through Niclays‘s memories, also did nothing for me, and I found their love story virtually unbelievable. ⬇ 9mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) Sabran was supposedly this strong heir to a queendom, yet spent most of her time wandering around wringing her hands because she was going to have to have a baby at some point. Which brings me to another point of contention – this book didn‘t feel pro-woman as much as it felt anti-motherhood, and it sat very uncomfortably with me. There are zero positive mothers in this story, and the undertone is definitely that becoming a mother is ⬇ 9mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) a great way to ruin your life. I was never able to really get behind the main love story, because it never felt real to me – plus I didn‘t like either of the characters. In the end, while I did want to find out what happened, I didn‘t actually care that much because while I didn‘t hate any of these characters (except Niclays, who really was dreadful, and whose “redemptive arc” was just stunningly unbelievable to me), I also didn‘t ⬇ (edited) 9mo
See All 7 Comments
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) love any of them, either. I didn‘t feel like this book was a waste by any means, and I‘m glad to have read it. Shannon does weave a very complicated story, pulling together myths and legends from multiple in-world cultures and turns them into a cohesive story. Much of it was incredibly well-written and I can see why so many people love this book. But I found basically every character to be unrelatable and, ⬇ 9mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) for the most part, unlikable, which meant that in the end I was somewhat relieved to finally finish this one. It was honestly a worthwhile read for me and I'm glad to have tackled it, but I was sad to discover - because wow do I love that cover and the concept - that it wasn't one that I would ever visit again. 9mo
ChaoticMissAdventures I didn't love this either. I didn't write a review So I don't remember the details (do not remember it being anti mother) I do remember it being much, much too long and drawn out and too predictable. 9mo

Well, this week's #BookReport is pretty boring - I've basically just been plowing my way through this chunkster!! I'm still staying on top of my four chapter-a-day books as well, so progress is being made. I also finished Blue Smoke, which I was halfway through when I took this picture last Sunday.

Priory is... okay. There is a lot about it that I really like, and there are also some things that I don't like. I've never read any of Shannon's⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) other books before, so I don't really know much about her writing style or whatever, but she seems to cross a line here from “women are more than baby-making machines“ to “not having children is the ONLY way a woman can seize her full potential“ and I don't care for the tone. Turning childbearing into a bogey-man that does nothing but enslave women and destroy their bodies is not a positive, feminist message in my mind. At any rate, ⬇ 9mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) there is still a lot to enjoy here and I'm glad to have read it - but I'll also be glad when I've checked it off haha

TheAromaofBooks @TrishB - It's been a perfectly nice read, but I feel like a lot of its dazzling reception has been more because of the “representation“ (especially having a f/f romance at the heart of it) than the actual story. Like it's totally fine, but not groundbreaking fantasy. 9mo
TrishB I‘m about to read the 3rd in the Bone Season series, I do like her stuff. 9mo
Cinfhen I‘m sorry you aren‘t loving Priory because it‘s such a chunkster, but I agree with your dislike of the message. 9mo
TheAromaofBooks @Cinfhen - I just feel like there is a balance between “women are just breeding stock“ and “having a child means you have chosen to give up everything good in your life“... I don't feel like it's particularly empowering to tell women that they aren't strong/smart/intelligent enough to both pursue their ambitions and have a family... or to tell women that choosing to focus on family isn't ambitious “enough“ 😕 9mo

So my plan on Monday was to read one more book before jumping into my #LMPBC read for March... and the “one more“ that I drew at random was the tagged 804pg chunkster! 😂 I'm almost 600pgs in, so I definitely want to finish it in the next couple of days. My other goals for #MarvellousMarch - actually read that #LMPBC book (In Other Lands), plus Pride, the #MGbuddyread for the month. We'll see which other books from my windowsill get picked up ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) after that.

In other news, it's supposed to be 50* and sunny today, 3-6“ of snow tonight, 26* tomorrow, then 60* on Monday so... Ohio doing Ohio stuff for sure!!!
