Fair's Fair kTime she was made to rule Emberfall along with Rhen She may have not been made to be a princess before but shenew what being a leader meant She A Missing Hero knew what she was doing and shenew she was doing it for good purposes Her warm heart and her care for the people showed that she was willing to do anything she could to help anyone We are all dealt a hand at birth A good hand can ultimately lose just as a poor hand can win but we must all play the cards the fate deals The choices we face may not be the choices we want but they are choices nonetheless Harper did learn from Rhen himself as well Since he was used to royalty since a young age Harper had to understand his point of view Seeing that she was able to understand and sympathize with him warmed my heart They were enemies and seeing how their relationship progressed into something beautiful as I read on In Cave Danger Pacific Northwest Mystery kept warming my heart Harper learns that there can be good in the hearts of the ones who look like there is no light in themRhen can be considered arrogant and with zero personality at first but to me he was not that Rhen was broken and he couldn t fix himself He thought he had it all at first and thought everything was easy but as time passed he noticed that none of it was ever easy He noticed that his people were dying but he had no motivation and determination to do anything Rhen looked back at his poor decisions and saw that he needed to do something His issue was that he felt like he couldn t do anything He was a broken prince who didn tnow where he belonged at the moment what his true colors were and who he really wasThis is an enemy to lovers story but it s not just about the romance It s also about trust and deciding on who to rely on who to let your secrets out to who to consider a big part of your life Rhen and Harper found in each other in both of their worst moments and although there were times when I wanted to yell at Harper because she was being the selfish one at times instead I could understand her situation She wanted to go home and see how her mother was doing She Nothing in this book is true but It's exactly how things are the esoteric meaning of the monuments on Mars knew she was going to die and her only hope was to say goodbye during the final stage She noticed how happy her brother was with his boyfriend Noah and noticed that he was also in trouble I couldn t blame her attitude because of the situation she was going through but I couldn t accept it every time because I needed her to understand Rhen s situation as well I do not understand how she can fill me with such hope and fear simultaneously I believe the only complaint of this is not only how the ending is torture and I have to wait until January of next year to find out if my predictions are true or false but the torture Brigid decided to give Rhen because of Lilith broke my heart It would make sense as to why she would do it as I hear Brigid makes torture as part of the plot in her books There isn t much I can say about her besides the fact that she showed nothing but darkness to Rhen We don t get to hear her side of the story and I hope we do in the next book With that epilogue there might be to her story or maybe it was the end Even though I really despised Lilith her never mentioned story sounds interesting and being able tonow about who she is what she really does why she did what she did and how she did it would bring suspense to the bookTo end this I d like to finally talk about my actual favorite character of this Grey His sarcastic tones his sense of humor his talk about my actual favorite character of this Grey His sarcastic tones his sense of humor his dialogue it was all hilarious The way he was able to get along with the children making them laugh at one point and then standing on guard when Rhen caught him was the cutest Not only that but the friendship he formed with Harper was something he needed Because he was also cursed with Rhen his age would repeat over and over again as well He was always a guardsman and considering that Rhen used to make him suffer at times the break he would get when he was with Harper was appreciated by me wholeheartedly He was making me laugh since he brought Harper to the castle and being able to see that he was another addition of hope light and happiness for Rhen was beautiful I do hope he remains as Rhen s guardsman not because of what he would do for
him but because of how long they have nown each other for and because of but because of how long they have nown each other for and because of they now from each other Grey was brave loyal and would never leave the side of Rhen unless asked to Seeing as how he would lay his life for Rhen brought multiple tears to stream down my cheeks She attacked you My eyebrows rise Grey She is half your size She makes up for it in temperament She most assuredly was not my first choice A Curse So Dark and Lonely has become a favorite of mine Seeing as how the ending was I don t think I ll be needing to re read this when the seuel comes out but I might reconsider it when the date becomes closer Twas a buddy read with my bestie Tabi even though she completely left me in the dust hahaRight sothis was an AMAZING La Belle et la B te retelling And trust me I ve read half a dozen of them by now 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 illed 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 But you needn t 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 mo.

Nster Big Ideas for Little Philosophers Box Set killed them all We allnow 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 ind 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 ill 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 of them 3 The last time I felt so passionately this way was with the Infernal Devices trio 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
