But okay, I tried to see past that. Maybe the author was trying to trick theoretical straight readers into reading this. I can respect that.
But then there's the multiple counts of attempted rape, which is the sort of thing I'd rather not crash into when reading about this bamf wolf lady. Speaking of bamf, what the heck happened to that? She randomly wimps up, and, (spoiler) is too wimpy to protect her favorite wolf pup, and then, despite being oft compared to a wolf herself, doesn't want to kill the guy who killed her pup. Okay, fine, she's sending him back as a warning--oh wait, the guy who she was warning? Yeah, he's gonna show up in her forest. And assault her. And also, he's been assaulting her girlfriend for months (years?)
There were so many opportunities for greatness. I liked the world the author built, or at least the species, it was an interesting take on werewolves. But it all added up to...semi-tragic, sexist, bull. I was lured in by some truly gorgeous cover art, but this book was just not enjoyable.
I think the author could write amazing books, but this one didn't make me want to find out.
To the author: My apologies that I couldn't leave a positive review. Writing is really hard, and you wrote a lot! Good job there! If I may, consider happy lesbians maybe?Read more ›
The people here are as harsh as the landscape, but they're not without their warmth, and in a land of perpetual winter, warmth is important. Heck, even in a world not cursed with perpetual winter, warmth is important. The warmth Marishka finds is not exactly conventional, which makes her story all the more intriguing.
How do you survive as an outcast in a place as harsh as Ingary? Beyond that, how do you thrive?
Read this book and find out. Seriously, read it - if I keep talking, there will be spoilers. :)
Bleizgeist is wonderfully evocative and beautifully written, the kind of story that sticks with a person. I can't wait to read it again.
