Description

My mother is dead. But it’s good to know that Asterian royals teach their women tact when they raise them.” Heat flooded Elara with mortification. “I’m sorry, I forg—” “Don’t be. She died in childbirth. I never knew her.”

I’m unreasonably enraged about this book - I loved the first, couldn’t put it down despite the room for improvement, and sang its praises.

i’m so gutted by this because i LOVED the first book. heavenly bodies is one of my favorite fantasy romances that i’ve ever read. i was so hyped for the sequel and i’ll admit my expectations were high. but this installment was such a let down. elara felt like she was acting so out of character in the first half of this book and it felt like all her character development in book 1 was all for nothing. same with enzo. he just didn’t really feel like the enzo i loved in HB. i don’t know if that’s because they were already together so the pining wasn’t doing it or because the hate to love aspect was missing. Then once work was complete the skeletons were sent to their respective new homes with paperwork apparently confirming that they were a certain saint. The villagers must have been dazzled by the creation that arrived and was installed in their local church. The saints often became part of village life and were carried proudly aloft during processions as a source of local pride that they had been so honoured . The largest number of them are in the Basilica at Waldsassen which has 10. Exhibit A. When we meet Adrian for the first time in this book he is eating out some woman (ahem, HOSAB chapter 3) Koudounaris has long been interested in animal history, and as a follow-up to his death books he planned initially to write a history of pet cemeteries. During the research, however, he became aware of how many exceptional stories of heroic animals had been left out of standard history books, especially involving cats. He had previously been involved in cat rescue, and owned a tabby named Baba with whom he had already commenced a photograph series of costumes. Acquiring mostly old doll and teddy bear costumes, Koudounaris would tailor them for Baba, who would model famous historical characters and popular culture figures. Koudounaris decided that instead of writing the pet cemetery book, he would write a feline history book, but using Baba as the narrator, and illustrating the book with her wearing costumes of the historical eras she discusses. [20] The result was A Cat's Tale: A Journey Through Feline History, released in November, 2020. Baba was listed as the co-author. The approach of attempting to tell history from a cat's point of view, and in a feline voice, was novel, and A Cat's Tale was lauded by Smithsonian Magazine as "The most unique cat history book ever published," [21] and selected by Barnes and Noble as one of the best new books of 2020. [22] Research on sex ghosts and demonic cats [ edit ] Also- I cant think of anything I'd rather see less in a fantasy romance than a Hozier reference. I recoiled on myself.

Now, I think it is necessary to say that romance was the biggest plot in this book. I'm very much a romance whore and don't have all that much to complain about with that. But for the people that like more balance between plot-romance or a plot-heavy story, this book might not hit the right spots for you. Thankfully from the second part of the book on, we were graced with Adrian's presence. Adrian is the most relatable of the characters. He and Oceanne/Cancia though 👀 HOT HOT HOT HOT For their first tryst alone I was glad I insisted on reading. They were easily the best part of the book. Also, the reveal that Oceanne was Cancia was pretty predictable if you were paying attention to it. And so was that Adrian was Water.The characters are engaging and entertaining and makes you cry at times. I cried since the first chapter btw so that’s that. Another wholesome found family in a book I’ll always cherish. Final thoughts because this review is just as messy as the book itself. I had high hopes for this sequence. The first book although not a five-star read for me was really good and piqued my interest. Nuwer, Rachel (November 23, 2020). "A History of Felines, as Illustrated and Narrated by a Cat".
