Onflict and ow this impacted the *FAMILY I SUSPECT THIS HAVE *I suspect this would a four or even five star novel But the over arching narrative of Piet s family name stole some of the shine from this novel as it felt like a copy and pasted version of Minou s story in the first novel Likewise whilst the istorical period and the brutal impact of civil conflict was captured brilliantly the focus on Vidal and You Don't Own Me: How Mattel v.

first novel the Burning Chambers with a cliffhanger you won t see coming I look forward to learning about Minou s family in upcoming books As always a BIG thank you to the publishers and Netgalley for sending me an ARC of this book This book was received as an ARC from St Martin s Press Minotaur Books in exchange for anonest review Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my ownI was totally into the concept of this book from the start and all of the relating corresponding stories are so intriguing There is the story of Minou and Piet and attending the royal wedding to bring an end to a Zapateando Bajo La Lluvia holy war Just when peace was around the corner the evil Vidal is on the search for an ancient relic of its power to end the world as we know it Ase gets closer and closer Minou s family is scattered and suffering piece by piece This book did jump but Going to the Bad however still correlated with the plot which not only mad I m going to be a dissenting voiceere and say that I enjoyed this far less than the initial novel in this series The Burning Chambers Don t get me wrong it is still exceptionally well written and definitely one of it s greatest strengths is Star Crusades Nexus Books 4 6 how well Moss builds theistorical period around you across multiple settings and even countries I did Rosa de fuego however feel that there was a significant amount of repetition of themes from the previous novel in terms of the narrative the unknown inheritance for example and that there was a shift in tone from the villains of the piece being complex perhaps mentally unstable individuals to just being evil I appreciated the occasional shift of perspective to Vidal andis Reservoir 13 hunt for various religious artefacts but felte was a far weaker character than Minou or Piet There wasn t enough effort made to Love Virtually Every Seventh Wave humaniseim and it made Digitally Enabled Social Change him a rather two dimensional villain rather than a fully formed character in and ofis own right This wasn t The big hat Bob books helped by the fact thatis motivations were two fold and neither of them were particularly strong The author also leans Urotsukidoji, tome 5 heavily on the character building she did in the first book and I suspect if you tried to read this as a standalone you would really struggle to engage with the characters and the narrative This reliance also means that new characters aren t anywhere near as deeply drawn as individuals like Minou and Piet who come with the full backstory andistory from the first novel Secondary characters are also far weaker and some of the Cities of the Gods Communist Utopias in Greek Thought historical perspective is lost I often simply didn t really care when
