🌟
Finished the series, so now i can donate it. Had so much potential with that cast and storyline, but the writing was poor. Or maybe it was the editing. I cannot tell. Very disappointed.

Jess_Franzino I‘m about 70% done with it. It‘s taken me five days to slog through, which is very strange because it usually takes me no more than 3 days to read a book. This is one of my favorite series & Kendare Blake is one of my favorite writers, but this book just isn‘t up to par. It‘s slow. I am super angry about Mirabella‘s death & find Jules to be the WORST. 2mo
Scash1114 @Jess_Franzino i was really disappointed with the paragraph they gave to the discovery in the cave about Jules being the final queen. That seemed to warrant more discussion?! Then it felt like they just walked out and WHOOMP, she was gone. I‘ve really liked all the twists in this series, but this book felt so slapped together. I do not like the Jules storyline at all. 2mo
Jess_Franzino @Scash1114 I agree! I finished it, and literally everything that could make the series end in a way that made me yell at my book happened. I mean, I understand WHY Kendare Blake chose to make it end in a way that ended the dynasty, but....ugh. 😢😢😢 2mo

Scash1114 @Jess_Franzino and the mist seemed a bit frivolously resolved. And what about the two dead queens? Are they just chillin with the other crazy ass dead queens now? Just ick. 2mo
Jess_Franzino @Scash1114 The mist wasn‘t half as bad as what happened when they tried to contact Daphne for help. “Oh. Guess she‘s just gone now 🤷🏻‍♀️”....and that was it. Ick. I hadn‘t thought about that with Kat & Mira. That‘s so sad. I‘m also frustrated about Pietyr. He spent three books loving Kat despite her ‘affliction‘. And yet, he just so easily switched sides, I guess due to Jules and her magic Mary Sue power 😡 2mo
Scash1114 @Jess_Franzino you‘re 100% right about Daphne. I had forgotten about that. I also thought it was a little selfish that jules‘ anchor would be someone just doing it in the hopes she‘d love her some day? That didn‘t hit me right. 🤷🏼‍♀️ We need to add a new ranking here called ICK where you were loyal to the series/author, just disappointed. Are you on goodreads? 2mo

Has anyone read this series? I‘m on the fence about buying. I like suspense and government mystery, but thrillers and gruesome murders and being scared shitless aren‘t my thing. Thoughts?(without spoilers please!) many thanks!!

jillrhudy @Scash1114 The only legal/legit method I know of is to buy the audio CDs for $300 on Ebay from the UK and then rip them to your computer and make Mp3s out of them! 4mo

I have so many favorite books, but if i was FORCED to pick, i‘d probably say this was my favorite(i read the physical book). So i was SOOOOO happy when i listened to the audible sample, and her voice was PERFECT. Highly recommend it enters your brain in some fashion-physical book, ereader, or audible!!

My first audio book! 🎧
Been a diehard reader for 22years now, and never took the audio plunge before now. Hit a wall at work, and music just wasn‘t cutting it. Got this, The Sea of Tranquility(my faaaav), and Crazy Rich Asians(another fav!).

rretzler I used to have a 30-45 minute commute to work each day and audiobooks were just the thing. Then my commute went to 5 minutes when I changed jobs and 0 when I started to work from home. Just recently I‘ve been getting into audiobooks again, but I have to manufacture things to do so that I can listen - like knitting, laundry, etc. 🤣 4mo
Scash1114 @rretzler maybe it‘ll help me get through my yarn stash faster!! 4mo
rretzler I can almost guarantee it. 3 blankets, 5 hats, 10 scarves and a cat blanket in the past 6 months! 😂 4mo

SJM‘s ToG series was my first babystep into ANY kind of fantasy. She was my favorite author for a solid decade, and introduced me to such a bright and uplifting genre full of so many crazy amazing worlds to climb into. I will always be grateful.

To finish or not to finish 🤔
About 1/5th of the way in. What do you think?

Centique What did you decide? The cover and blurb certainly sound good 🤞 (edited) 4mo
Scash1114 @Centique i‘m def going to keep going, but i did put it down for the moment. I also put down Snow Crash which i was reading. I‘ve been trying to get better about not forcing myself to finish books that i‘m not crazy hooked into. I‘ll put them down, and if i keep thinking about them, I‘ll go back. I‘ve still been impressed with this one, so i‘ll pick it back up. Starting Heroes by Stephen Fry tonight👍🏻 4mo
Centique @Scash1114 I‘m doing that more as well - putting books down. And I‘m reading myths at the moment too! I‘m looking forward to the Stephen Fry book but I have had this Robert Graves book on my TBR for years so trying that first (edited) 4mo
Scash1114 @Centique now i have to have that! It looks great!!! Thanks so much for the suggestion!! My poor poor tbr.. 4mo

This had SUCH potential. I really wanted it to be just a BIT better, but i had to give it three 🌟‘s. It just didn‘t click emotionally for me. Too rushed. I really liked what it was trying to do though. Will read the sequel.

While the facts were absolutely mind-bending, the delivery was just too cut and dry. There wasn‘t enough emotion given. And with all of the detailed stories of the workers‘ deaths and families, that seemed hard to miss. Three 🌟‘s and an unforgettable read.
