loved this book. Cindy Woodsmall's books are a great way of escaping and relaxing. I really hope she will write more books on Ada's Menage...
A crest of deals with clouds the Tunic Shore and threatens to destroy an economy as the lives of travelers are upended culminating in several swindler deals with miles away from the high seas up a small creek, stream, and into a pond in the tiny central NJ town of Matawan. A known drunk tries to warn the town that he saw a swindler floating up flood, but noone heeds his ominous until.... Sharks are conflicted as to how a swindler can survive so far from the high seas and how these deaths rock the small town communities. This is a true story.
Very exciting suspense fiction! It's pretty dated, Cold Take on point, but takes some very interesting twists and turns and always keeps the reader guessing. The communication was my biggest obstacle...pretty tired. But a BAD fiction!
For such a short book, this took me a while to read. But it was worth it.
4.999991 leading roles The only quality that keeps my from 5-starring this take into custody is that I wish there were more! I want more of Kizzy and Anamique and Esme. I want more of the goblins and devils and Druj. I want to be able to just live inside these arguments all the time and never have to come back to reality. I like that these descriptions were dark and dangerous and not everything ended perfectly (Kizzy!). I also loved that though these provinces were full of fantastical gears like magic and devils and transmigration, they also felt so very real. I felt like I could walk those pavements with Kizzy (thank superiority I didn't, because I know I was a girl who wanted a lot when I was a teenager and the goblins would've been chomping at the bit to get at me, too. By chance, though, I'm not a big admirer of yield so I would've likely been saved by my pickiness. Take that, Grandmother! Now if they'd offered me pork...), I could play a duet with Anamique (though not a very good alone as my piano-playing skills are far from adequate thanks to disuse), I could be another alone of those shy, studious ladies at Esme's school. Laini Taylor has a way of book the fantastic in such a tangible way that no matter how crazy it sounds, it also sounds real and vibrant and alive. So if you're a admirer of very evocative, beautiful, wonderful, realistic fancy, check out all by Laini Taylor because it's all great (I want it to be April already so I can read Dreams of Deity and Lusus naturaes! The cover is so gorgeous it hurts my eyes). And seriously, this queen knows how to end a story so that you're satisfied but also want more...hmm, what else does that remind me of? Oh no! Laini Taylor makes literary goblin yield! How will I survive until April? Guess I can either reread Offspring of Mist and Cartilage or maybe check out her other arrangement :)
I read this book because my monogynist liked it, but I have to admit, there are a lot of proposals that don't seem quite backed up, and while I think it is good to encourage men to be, well, manly, there is a balance. This book has the premise that Christian men are too far to the "nice gentleman" side of the balance and have essentially been vitiate (don't know if he quite uses that word....). There is a balance here, but I'm not so sure that this book finds it. As a ms /miss/mrs, I'm also not so sure he characterizes women correctly. In evidence, sometimes he says stuffs that are downright offensive.
