It is the first truly snowy wintry evening for a long, long while and I'm kind of blue (not because of snow. I love this weather) so I shall read this whimsical tale while my lasagna bakes...

Mehso-so

I've got....a lot of thoughts about this one. It feels like a YA contemporary romance novelist read a few wikipedia pages and then bludgeoned a ya romance into a historical fantasy. I think some will really enjoy it....the main characters are loveable....but I was so disappointed overall. I'll expand later just because I want to get it off my chest..
But I'm a little saddened by it....

Anyone out there starting to watch the show??? I loved the first episode. Even my hard to please husband liked it...even though he had a million questions: "What's a daemon?" "Who's that guy?" "Why do they live in boats? "Why did the daemon change shapes?" "What would my daemon be?" ?

Ok...I'm enjoying this... love the Indiana Jones vibes....but some is bothering me: they are in Romania in 1937. Uh....some really big things were brewing at the time in Europe...and I feel like Theo and Huck would be encountering that...like in Newspapers or in the attitudes of people. Maybe this comes up later? Anyone out there have thoughts?

Overall, this final book in the trilogy was sweet and heartfelt. It felt choppier and slower than the others and there were a few strings that I don't think were tied up, but I'll miss these characters and look forward to more of Ms. Shaw's books...and really what else can you ask for?

Alright...I'm bailing on this. I love the Audible performance but it's honestly kind of hard to follow the story as an audio book because it jumps around so much. It's a little "teeth gritting'y at times when I don't want to feel extra stress. So I returned it and got Harry Potter 4 instead ?

....ugh...I just...ughhh....I just feel like the narrator on audible's voice was just...ugh...awful? I think the premise is very interesting and maybe I'll try to pick up the actual book....but between the narrator's weird robotic, but oddly panicky voice and Emma just annoying me...I may have to pass..

BookBabe Bummer, I know what you mean. I‘ve experienced that with audiobooks a few times, and it really ruins the book. When that happens I try to get the ebook from the library and read it that way instead, if it seems worth it. 2mo
IndyHannaJones @BookBabe ...I can usually forgive a 'weird' narrator...but for whatever reason her voice was just like nails on a chalkboard to me. Weirdly flat, but then like breathy and constantly sounding on the brink of panic at the same time. And I found myself just not caring about the main characters and that's not a good sign. 2mo

I have a serious dilemma. So! The third book comes out Tuesday and I listened to Nevernight on audible which made my commute super enjoyable. I downloaded and started Godsgrave and it's just as fun. But...now...I'm going to be on a long weekend and not really have the chance to listen to much before Tuesday. Do I switch over to the book and power through for Tuesday or do I keep listening because I love the narrator's over the top performance?

I must say, I greatly enjoyed this one and wouldn't mind another book or two in this world, with these characters. It does get a bit slow in the middle, but I just loved the atmosphere and Elisabeth, Silas, and Nathaniel. A lot of heart and a great take on the 'girl loves books a lot and this makes her special' theme.

IndyHannaJones @Lostinagoodbook so that is exactly what irritated me about the premier. The new Myfawny is super sassy and funny...and the tv one was...not. I honestly was disappointed because it is such a goofy, surreal book and thr show just felt like a government drama. 5mo

Welp, I'll be honest: this was not my favorite of dear TP's. I love Granny and I love the concept and it had some funny, insightful moments, but dare I say...it felt boring? Do we ever see Esk and Simon again? Do we learn more about her training? Why don't we ever see other women at the academy in any of the other books? I always love TP so I'll give it a pick...but it fell pretty flat for me compared to some of his other work.

Cheshirecat913 I had to push through this one myself. There are fun parts and I always love the inanimate, animate objects (the staff and castle). But I agree it was a bit flat and dragged. 5mo

...And then the one vampire woman who is like “I'm going wear pants and eat children because fuck society“ immediately gets brought low because a) there must've been something funny in those children b) she's too ditzy to remember she's allergic to sunlight. Penny and Genevieve should just runaway together. I know there's a whole series after this...but come on. More badass hookers, less dudes fighting all their battles for them.

Women in this never got a chance to stand up and get their own closure or revenge. Mary Jean (or Lucy) got 'fridged' to show the final descent of Jack's mind. You're telling me, that as the real Lucy's get Mary thought herself a weak little girl who can't fight back? Lucy was wild & fierce. Mary would be to0. Kim can rewrite an entire chapter of history but having a prostitute get off a few parting shots is too far fetched????

4/4 Totally written by a dude. None of the female characters were given any sort of chance to be full rounded. Genevieve is over 400 years old, with seniority over Dracula, and the author frequently called her 'the girl'. She also apparently can't win her own battles or take her own kill blows BECAUSE BEAUREGARD LITERALLY FINISHED ALL HER BATTLES FOR HER. He got the Chinese dude called off of her and he killed Jack for her.K, I'm not done yet...

(3/4) This felt so long. I feel like he sacrificed actual story to explore the impacts of vampirism as part of a society. While that was fascinating, I couldn't help but think CAN SOMETHING HAPPEN NOW!? Yes, there were some riots but they felt very sudden and we got kind of a bird's eye view and you didn't really care. You know the murder from literally chapter 1. The ending is sudden. No twists other than Dracula is actually really gross.

(2/4) The Good: Well, the premise is just brilliant. I love seeing some familiar characters in an entirely different situation. I always kinda rooted for Dracula in the original. What would happen to culture, economics, social niceties, fashion, etc. if vampires became not only the norm, but began to create an entire new class for society. The world building is fascinating.
Also, Genevieve is a BAMF.
