It‘s underneath the stars that Carina is able to read the map no man can read and find the island which leads to Poseidon‘s trident 🔱!

I enjoyed this backstory of how Carina learned to study the stars ⭐️!

Would you call this book magical realism? Supernatural? Something else?
(Photo purely for ears and toebeans) #catsoflitsy

DrexEdit I find magical realism as a term is applied more often to works of literature and supernatural more often to describe genre writing. Not saying I agree with those classifications, just what I've most often found to be true. Based on that I'd call Beloved magical realism. Although I doubt anyone would have called it that at the time of its publication! 16h

I loved the first book set in this world, but remember very little of it. This one started off a bit slowly for me, but now I'm fully feeling it!

I don‘t usually read a book at breakfast-usually it‘s WaPo on my Kindle these days- but Uverse struck again on Saturday. Service is out. No tv, no internet, no phone. 😡 Living on cell data until the tech gets here on Wednesday. Not happy, but at least I have plenty of reading time. Not sure why I‘m eating with grandson‘s dinosaur placemat 😂

GrilledCheeseSamurai I mean...if your gonna have a placemat it might as well have dinosaurs on it. 🤷‍♂️ 2d

Thank you Tulsa City County Library for allowing this wonderful book to travel to Davenport, Iowa!!!! 😄 I‘m really enjoying this series so far. DCI Kim Stone faces off with a well respected psychologist, who is assisting with some recent cases. Stone doesn‘t trust her and digs deeper!!!! A thrilling ride as Kim battles her personal demons and brilliantly solves the cases put before her!!! Highly recommend 💜💜💜

It isn't like the movies, Amaryllis Fox says in the early chapters of her memoir. There aren't high speed chases through city streets, jumping through civilians as the undercover agent evades their surveillance tail. She then proceeds to tell a story that is so compelling, I can't for the movie (which is, apparently, coming).

ablachly Recruited out of Georgetown, Fox becomes an agent for the CIA, working under non-official cover as an arms dealer posing as an art dealer. This story about the decade she spent doing counterterrorism work is fascinating, as are all the places you see her grasp for her own identity -- who is she, underneath all the masks she's wearing? It's an exhilarating book, which never loses its humanity. 2w
