I m on the verge of breaking up with YA fantasy Well with the new releases anyway and just sticking to authors that have worked for me And possibly reading YA fantasy that were released in the past because the constant disappointments and anger I feel towards the new ones are slowly decimating my soulThis was a flop for me Here I was expecting to really enjoy this retelling and it just got worse as I read on I could not tell you what happened in the last 100 pages or so I skim read it and I don t even care that I did I tolerated it for 400 pages and that s enough to tell you I was patient enough The annoying thing for me here is that I adore absolutely LOVE Letters to the Lost and More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer Those stories were so emotionally hard hitting for me and well written and the characterisation strong But this felt like child s play I cringed on numerous occasions because of how flimsy it felt There was so much lacking when it came to its world building as well as the character development The plot was interesting at first and it took me away to Emberfall and then it became a snooze fest I wasn t convinced by any of it There was no substance strength and no meat to the story I think because it was uite fast faced it missed out on properly developing on those other elementsGoddamn I m feeling bitter I m feeling too bitter to think and give examples I really wanted to like this And now I want to cry I ll review it properly whenever Or never Sigh Book 2 for the TomeTopple readathon Buddy reading with the wonderful Karima I adore Brigid Kemmerer s other books They ve been 5 star reads for me I m hoping this will be too

Beastly Cruel Beauty A Court of Thorns and Roses Uprooted Hunted Why no I don t have a problemWhy would you even think that I especially enjoyed the fact that like Meagan Spooner s Hunted we were able to see inside the mind of the beast I think that this book ranks just under Rosamund Hodge s Cruel Beauty as my favourite retelling of this classic tale 3 Just like Hodge s interpretation Kemmerer s has one heck of an opening line There is blood under my fingernails I wonder how many of my people I ve killed this time Doesn t that just hook you in Unlike most faery tale retellings Kemmerer s blurs the lines between urban fantasy and high fantasy which admittedly is why I was initially hesitant to pick this book up But you needn t worry Less than five of the sixty chapters actually take place in our world The novel is almost exclusively set in the parallel land of Emberfall My father is dead my lady My whole family is dead He pulls back meeting my gaze but his voice doesn t change That monster killed them all We all know how this tale goes by now Once upon a time a handsome prince lived in a beautiful castle Although he had everything his heart desired the prince was selfish and arrogant One night an unexpected intruder arrived in his chambers seeking to become the future ueen The prince shared a bed with her and turned the woman away Scorned the woman revealed herself as a beautiful enchantress As punishment she cursed the castle and all who lived there After each season she would transform him into a hideous beast unless he could learn to love another and earn their love in return After which the curse would be broken Unfortunately for the prince this is his last season to do so or he would remain a beast for all time Filled with despair and empty of hope he wondered who could ever learn to love a beast I d forgotten this How I could never solve anything before How I was something to be shoved into back rooms or left playing lookout in the alley because I never had anything to offer Harper was a simply lovely protagonist who was so brave kind and caring While she may not have been born a princess she certainly carried herself like one Captured from the streets of Washington DC at eighteen and suffering from a mild case of cerebral palsy when one falls on the mild side of the spectrum one can walk unaided she has a lot going on at home as well Her father left them with a mountain of debt owed to criminals her brother is expected to find a way to pay back that debt and her mother is dying from cancer Needless to say being abducted to a magical land and given the duty of breaking a curse isn t something else she wants to add to her to do list Either way she comes to truly care for the people of Emberfall which makes her rather conflicted internally Should she stay in Emberfall and help the people who cannot help themselves Or should she return home to treasure the few precious moments she has left with her mother and help her brother resolve their debt Harper is definitely one of my new favourite protagonists They believe her limp is the result of a war injury but Harper is uick to correct them I was born this way she ll snap and I m going to die this way so teach me to work around it They love her for it Rhen was a wonderful prince and I definitely swooned at some points I really felt for him because with the exception of Grey he s been alone for so long repeating the curse over and over again season after season and in that time no one has come to love him He s lost the family that he loved AND the trust of his people who thought he had deserted them He might even lose his country itself to a neighbouring country trying to invade and if he fails to break the curse this season he ll permanently be a beast that could kill his people without hesitation Grey stands in the doorway one child on his shoulders half covered by the cloak Another is in his arms sound asleep and drooling against the front of his uniform Snow dusts all three of themMY HEART 3 BUT despite how much I loved Rhen the star of the show for me was Grey the commander of the royal guard I love the tall dark and handsome strong silent and brooding male trope haha So sexy He was so brave risking his life by facing down the beast each season and so loyal continuing to stay by Rhen s side after all this time I have no idea who I prefer Harper to be with romantically but she has sizzling chemistry with the both of them 3 The last time I felt so passionately this way was with the Infernal Devices trio Will Jem and Tessa by Cassandra ClareMy only complaint is that the enchantress Lilith was a pretty one dimensional villain We never got to hear her side of the story or even feel some sympathy for her But all in all she was a pretty sadistic and cruel antagonist that made this story even compellingAnd can we talk about that epilogue I need A Heart So Fierce and Broken pronto January 2020 cannot come uickly enough I haven t read Kemmerer s recent ventures into contemporary fiction but I did read her X Men esue Elemental series in the early 2010s This was such an improvement from her plots to her characters and even her
