PS; I was provided a review copy in exchange for an honest review. Thanks go to the publisher! Prince Tal has long awaited his coming-of-age tour. His first taste of adventure comes just two days into the journey, when their crew discovers a mysterious prisoner on a burning derelict vessel. Tasked with watching over the prisoner, Tal is surprised to feel an intense connection with the roguish Athlen.
So when Athlen leaps overboard and disappears, Tal feels responsible and heartbroken, knowing Athlen could not have survived in the open ocean. That is, until Tal runs into Athlen days later on dry land, very much alive, and as charming—and secretive—as ever. But before they can pursue anything further, Tal is kidnapped by pirates and held ransom in a plot to reveal his rumored powers and instigate a war. Tal must escape if he hopes to save his family and the kingdom. And Athlen might just be his only hope….
The beginning of In Deeper Waters left a bit to be desired. I felt the secondary characters were not very fleshed out; to the point they felt like cardboard copies of every other YA character. It felt truly like the point of the book was the romance and the rest was just window dressing—which eh, for fantasy to be done right you need a BIT more. The middle is good, focuses more on Prince Tal and the hardships he has to endure while having been kidnapped.
The other thing it focuses on is building the relationship between Tal and Athlen—which is super cute and where most of my enjoyment came from. In the end once we are surrounded by a larger cast of characters is when I feel my interest began to ebb. The other characters are just not very interesting, and it felt like we kept them around just because we had to at this point. In Deeper Waters also left a pretty major question unanswered when it came to Athlen, and ends with the prettiest bow known to man kind. I feel this will be one of those books I forget in a couple of weeks.
The idea of the book was better than the execution. Touraine is a soldier. Stolen as a child and raised to kill and die for the empire, her only loyalty is to her fellow conscripts. But now, her company has been sent back to her homeland to stop a rebellion, and the ties of blood may be stronger than she thought. Luca needs a turncoat. Someone who can sway the rebels toward peace, while Luca focuses on what really matters: getting her uncle off her throne. Through assassinations and massacres, in bedrooms and war rooms, Touraine and Luca will haggle over the price of a nation.
I see a lot of people are going to fall in love with this harsh, queernorm, absolutely wonderfully built world. I just, it can be hard to get into. It could drag at times. There is so much tragedy and unfairness and sadness… and I have plenty of that in the real world. I wanted escapism, but I got grounded real quick. But that is on me—this book explores colonialism in multiple facets, giving us a very deep and detailed view of the unfairness of the world, the damage colonialism has through the generations, and how hard it is to break the chains that bind. Set in a rich setting, with multiple queer characters in fact, sexuality and identity is a non issue and very fluid I would say with the entire cast , there is a lot to love. It has some romance, but not a lot. The romance is full of tension, and it is uncomfortable to read at times because of the power difference between the characters it feels intentional though, it fits well within the narrative.
The Unbroken tackled colonialism and what it does to everybody involved, internalized racism as well as just racism in general, cultural appropriation, the melding of two cultures, religion and the lack of… I really think it does so in a wonderful way. Just be in the correct state of mind before you throw yourself head deep. I felt the MC had a lot of responsibilities on her shoulders, and nobody really got her struggles. Not her friends, not the person she is supposedly falling for her. Touraine makes a ton of mistakes throughout the novel, ones she is able to come back from, others not so much… Her relationship with her mother is also one full of struggles and heartache.
Her relationship with Luca is very slow burning, and I felt like we needed a few more scenes with them giving into their emotions in order for us to really be shipping them. Then again, this is just the first book in the series so there is room to grow. Touraine has to fall again and again in order to learn—she was taken by her colonizers from a young age, and indoctrinated into their way of life. She struggles with coming to terms that maybe her way of looking at the world is just flawed and puts her people down.
Luca both wants to have her cake and eat it too—she wants to rule this foreign land, while at the same time have them thank her for it. Luca is complicated—she is also a character that deals with chronic pain, as when she was a young girl she suffered a very bad fall and her legs were compromised. She can still walk, but always with a cane. The Unbroken is complicated, and harsh. You need to be in the right state of mind to dive deep into it, but at the end of the day it is a rewarding experience.
I am looking forward to the sequel. Perfect for fans of the Lady Janies and Stalking Jack the Ripper , the first book in the Jane Austen Murder Mysteries series is a clever retelling of Pride and Prejudice that reimagines the iconic settings, characters, and romances in a thrilling and high-stakes whodunit. When a scandalous murder shocks London high society, seventeen-year-old aspiring lawyer Lizzie Bennet seizes the opportunity to prove herself, despite the interference of Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy, the stern young heir to the prestigious firm Pemberley Associates.
Convinced the authorities have imprisoned the wrong person, Lizzie vows to solve the murder on her own. But as the case—and her feelings for Darcy—become more complicated, Lizzie discovers that her dream job could make her happy, but it might also get her killed. You get the archetypes you have known and perhaps loved for many years now, but with a twist and a more focused look into the struggles of POC and women in general. It really let Lizzie be able to investigate the murder at her own pace.
It is refreshing seeing this tackled in the book and not just ignored or set aside by not adding any POC characters to the story. Well done. There are other books out there who attempt to be historically accurate, and sometimes suffer for it. I like that Pride and Premeditation is trying to do its own thing while playing within the beloved world of Jane Austen. I liked the murder aspect, I loved Lizzie, and am really looking forward to future books. Will every book be about a different sister? Will we follow Lizzie and her career? I want to keep Lizzie as the MC, because I loved her character so much, but I guess we need to wait to see what the future will entail when the blurb of the second book is out.
At least Pride and Premeditation does not end on a cliffhanger, so we have that as a consolation at the very least. Welcome to Amontillado, Ohio, where your last name is worth more than money, and secrets can be kept… for a price. When her parents disappeared seven years ago while driving her best friend home, Tress lost everything. Tress has a plan. A Halloween costume party at an abandoned house provides the ideal situation for Tress to pry the truth from Felicity — brick by brick — as she slowly seals her former best friend into a coal chute. With a drunken party above them, and a loose panther on the prowl, Tress will have her answers — or settle for revenge. That quote is not from the book itself, though there is one very similar which I loved, but from the original short story this story sprung from, The Cask of Amontillado.
I had never read that short story to be honest with you, but after finishing The Initial Insult I just had to find it and see how they compare. Edgar Allen Poe is quite macabre, and Mindy McGinnis manages to stay true to the short story while giving it a second life. The Initial Insult gives us concrete reasons as to why Tress is angry enough to want to bury her ex best friend behind a wall of bricks…. She was getting answers, or someone would die as she tried. I do like the story and the many stories told within the overall narrative. As Tress and Felicity hash out their problems we get to see stories from their past from both POVs; giving us a lot of prespective.
Felicity might have not meant to hurt Tress, but she keeps on doing it again and again—by being a follower, by not standing up for her, by keeping the truth to herself. Not every hurt that Tress has had in her life connects directly to Felicity, but it sure feels like it when you see the story through her eyes. Maybe only blood can very well do that.
I blame this on her mother, who has taught her to hide her true self behind pleasantries and be as fake as possible in order to fit in. He is neglectful, emotionally abusive, a drunk, good for nothing. There is also a lot of other side characters who are not completely bad Hugh, the football player who is a nice guy who acts like a bad guy , legit good characters Brynn, the volleyball star, and only black student in this small backwards town in which your last name has more value than even your bank account , and others whose jury is still out. My main drawback from the story is that while I understand the build up that was needed, and the payoff was great in the end, it does feel like it can drag along, specially since the only way you see any story progression is from the scenes told in the past, while in the present only hours pass along.
I am so very excited for the next book in this duology!! Return to the world of inklings, tattoo magic, and evil deities as Celia uncovers the secrets of the ink in order to stop Diavala once and for all. Celia Sand faced Diavala and won, using ink magic to destroy the corrupt religion of Profeta that tormented her for a decade. But winning came with a cost. Now Celia is plagued with guilt over her role in the death of her best friend. The key to destroying Diavala may lie with Halycon Ronnea, the only other person to have faced Diavala and survived. But Halcyon is dangerous and has secrets of his own, ones that involve the ink that Celia has come to hate.
Forced to choose between the ink and Diavala, Celia will do whatever it takes to save Griffin—even if it means making a deal with the devil himself. Curse of the divine picks up right where Ink in the Blood left us. Celia and co. This of course came at a great cost to Celia, who lost the most important person in her life. I love how creative Kim Smejkal is. She ventures out to create her own world full of her own rules and pretty much nails it.
I remember really liking Ink in the Blood when it came out last year, and not knowing how the sequel would hold up. Let me tell you, it holds up in an extravagant way. I might even like it more than the first book. You get Diavala in a more close and personal scenario, giving her story texture and even making you sympathize with the she devil. Celia also walks the line between the good guy and the less than stellar girlfriend. Within days, Janie's body would be autopsied for the first time. The cause of death: upper spinal cord and neck injury hyperextension injury.
In layperson's terms, hyperextension is a "hangman's fracture": when the neck is bent so far back that it separates from the spine. Normally it's an injury caused by extreme impact to the face, not by an accidental backwards fall. The autopsy raised more questions than it answered, adding heat to the rumors that swirled through the town. Rumors that Janie had been beaten until her neck was broken, that she had been "clothes lined" by a group of kids, or that she'd been thrown in the river and covered with rocks so she would sink to the bottom and drown. In fact, there were so many questions about Janie's death that state police actually videotaped a re-enactment, asking witnesses to re-create what they say they saw using a life-size doll to re-enact Janie's alleged fall.
Only three people at the party said they'd actually witnessed the fall: Gary Don Snow, an ex-convict who bought alcohol for the party; Billy Harris, the high school quarterback; and Sarah Patterson, a high school cheerleader and beauty queen whose father was the district judge. Both Snow and Harris told police on tape that Janie Ward collapsed and fell backward from the step. But for a reason never explained, the third eyewitness, Sarah Patterson, was not interviewed on tape, even though she had earlier told police she saw Janie "kind of twist and fall. Patterson was one of the girls Janie's parents say was at odds with their daughter, and there were rumors that she and Janie had gotten into a fight that very day. But nowhere in the police file does it indicate that Patterson was ever asked if she and Janie had been in a fight.
And there were other questions about the investigation as well. Much of the evidence in Janie's case was lost or mishandled: Forensic tests on her muddy jeans never came back from the lab; her clothes -- crucial evidence -- cannot be found; and the original X-rays were lost or thown away. The family contends that the duplicate copy of one X-rray was tampered with and official markings removed, so that it showed only a white splotch where the medical examiner had noted damage. For years, Janie's parents pushed for a new investigation to look into the witnesses' stories, the condition of their daughter's body -- wet, sandy and bruised -- and the missing evidence. But no one listened until one of their letters reached forensic pathologist Harry Bonnell.
Bonnell, who has conducted more than 7, autopsies, volunteered to exhume Janie's body and conduct an independent autopsy free of charge. His conclusion was explosive. Bonnell believes that something or someone appeared to have hit Janie in the face hard enough to snap her head back. In other words, according to Bonnell, Janie's death was a homicide. For the Wards, it was the conclusion they had both hoped for and feared. For the first time, an authoritative voice was telling them their daughter did not die from a fall but was killed, possibly murdered. However, the state medical examiner dismissed Bonnell's claims in a scathing nine page critique.
Arkansas Medical Examiner Charles Kokes said Bonnell's autopsy report was "woefully inadequate" and that there was "no credible pathologic evidence to support" the allegations that Janie had been physically assaulted. Bonnell fired back, charging a "coverup. That's when award-winning investigative journalist Mike Masterson started asking questions in his opinion column in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, the biggest newspaper in the state. What blow did drive her head back far enough to fracture her neck, break her nose, black her eye, cover her face in bruises, send blood sent down the inside of her neck and into her shoulder? What force caused that? And the one question Masterson kept returning to in column after column -- more than columns in all -- was directed to his readers: "What if Janie Ward were your daughter?
The mounting political pressure from Masterson's columns led to the appointment of a special prosecutor, Tim Williamson. Williamson set up a "war room" with investigative background, diagrams, and statements of all the witnesses. Bonnell, I'm not trying to prove Dr. Bonnell," Williamson said. Because if he's correct, she was murdered and somebody needs to be prosecuted. But Bonnell's autopsy alone was not enough. What Williamson needed was an eyewitness, someone who could describe exactly what happened to Janie. And that's exactly what he got. Sylvia Watkins' name was in the case file, but no one had followed up with her for 17 years, until ABC News called her. What she said she saw the night of Sept. Back then, Sylvia Watkins said she was a "runner": someone who drove dealers to their appointments to sell drugs.
On the day Janie died, she says she was taking a brick of marijuana to a party in the woods in Marshall, which just happened to be at the same cabin where Janie was. Watkins, who admits she had a joint or two herself on the way to Marshall, says she saw two girls fighting on the porch when she drove up. One of the girls, she says, was Janie Ward. The other, according to Watkins, was wielding a bat. Watkins claimed the girl with the bat was the cheerleader, the third witness who saw Janie fall, the classmate who had been linked by rumors to Janie's death all along.
She was also the same girl whose father was the district judge. There were problems with Watkins' story. The biggest problem was that what Watkins told ABC News contradicts her statement that was part of the case file. In an unsigned witness statement after Janie died, she said that she heard third-hand that Janie Ward got in a fight with some girls at the creek, and was hit in the head with a beer bottle. What Watkins' statement exactly matched the forensic conclusions of Bonnell's autopsy findings. And why have you waited 15 or 20 years to come forward? When asked if she had fabricated a story based on Bonnell's findings as reported in newspaper or Internet accounts, Watkins insisted she was telling the truth.
ABC News wanted to speak to the girl at the center of all the rumors: the former cheerleader and beauty queen Sarah Patterson. Patterson, who says she left town to escape all the rumors and stares, had never spoken publicly before, but she decided to set the record straight. I just want my name cleared of everything. I want out of it," Patterson told Avila. Patterson says she was targeted unfairly because of her status in Marshall.
