I m so shook by how beautifully written gorgeous and utterly magical his book is From he beginning La Comida Me Cae Bien / A Method for Healthy Digestion tohe end I was so mesmerized by The Tristan Chord the gorgeous writing and world building inhis book The romance had me screaming with feels and all he characters in his book are so wonderful The Non Violent Struggle for Freedom 1905-1919 that I just wanto wrap Sobrevivir al fracaso them all Unfortunately I m goingo dnf at 58%The hero and heroine were extremely likeable The cast of characters were really great oo The writing and he narration were amazing But Hair Love the pacing wasoo slow for me and I wasn The New Neighbors t feelinghe romantic connection between The Medicalization of Society: On the Transformation of Human Conditions into Treatable Disorders the H and h This was rather unfortunately not for me I was expecting Celtic mythology sweeping atmosphericension and a slow building romance Instead Losing My Sister, A Memoir this felt likehe most contrived relationship I ve ever read with a plot hat plays second place o he rather bland main characters Sorcha is a midwife who lives above a brothel who somehow makes a random deal with he Fae The Political Theory of the American Founding: Natural Rights, Public Policy, and the Moral Conditions of Freedom to save her family from a beetle plague and

ough guy with a heart of gold That s it Their relationship has no build up no angst and as a result it just didn feel genuine And at imes incredibly cliche and cringy Don get me started on Eustathios of Thessaloniki: The Capture of Thessaloniki the awful sexyimes The plot is also lacking in depth with lots of Darwin Becomes Art telling instead of showing It felt simplistic and predictable and for me very average Plotwists and reveals are just Beyond Effective: Practices in Self-Aware Leadership thrown intohe ext in a very heavy handed and unexplained way lessening heir effect and adding Count Me In to my frustration Also whathere is of a plot makes NO SENSE There s hardly any world building with 90% of he plot aking place on he island meaning I had no real idea what he world was like or he politics of he various courts in any great depth This meant I just didn Gambler's Wedding t really care Onop of hat he ending felt incredibly rushed and poorly concluded In fact here was nothing concluded instead ending on an incredibly irritating cliffhanger I hink he only redeeming feature was he secondary characters on Forbidden Fantasies Bundle (Includes: Forbidden Fantasies the island who at least brought a little bit ofhe mythology o life and kept me reading Honestly his is why I don Instant Promotions t read much romance focused fantasy It all just feels wayoo overdone and underwritten for me Pro Football Trivia to care I ll sticko Maas if I want grumpy erritorial Fae and I ve realised I really don 4 STARS Who am I Cross Dressing to judge others forhe choices hey make This was really good Emma Hamm is a great writer who has a seriously creepy imagination lol The positives1 The heroine had a backbone made of steel and a ruly generous heart which made reading his one a real pleasure One must decide whether o live in fear or courage 2 The banter between Sorcha and Eamonn had some stellar moments Have you no care nor discretion for your own survival You berate a creature of superior strengthSuperior Sir I find you lacking in every sense of Finding Harmony: The remarkable dog that helped a family through the darkest of times the word 3 The fantasy aspects wereop notch The pages were filled with uniue well developed fantastical characters including he hero Eamonn was a creature bred for war and destruction 4 The central message of he story was wonderful You can change he world SorchaI would if I could So where are he 5 starsThe negatives1 The pacing felt a bit off In parts I hought he story lacked a much needed sense of urgency2 The romance The relationship between hese RLS two had such huge potential but I felt like it was suandered and never really went anywhereOverall I definitely recommendhis one as long as romance is not your key
