Popsugar Challenge 2015 | Task 42: A book you own but haven't read

Not my favorite series by Bishop. All four of her series resonate with the same themes, but this one is a pale imitation of the Black Jewels world. The pacing was also a little off, sometimes plodding along and other racing to the finish. ( )

All of Anne Bishop's writing (that I've read) have the same themes: men vs. women, power, connection to the natural world. Someone said her writing is "Id-fueled." I'm not sure I agree, but I can't disagree either. Belladonna is engaging but a little slow. The Ephemera series doesn't read any differently from the Black Jewels or Tir Alainn series. Men work to destroy women (and their male allies). One woman hides a powerful secret AND holds the fate of the world in her hands. ( )

A gripping sequel to Sebastian, Anne Bishop continues the story of the characters who inhabit Ephemera, a fantasy land where the land reflects the hearts of those who influence it. The powerful Landscaper Glorianna Belladonna, cast out during her training from her fellow Landscapers, struggles with her mission to cast out the Eater of the World and to protect the places of Light. She finds help from her family and from two siblings who find their way into Glorianna's landscapes. With her signature style, Anne Bishop creates a fun read full of emotion. ( )

This is the second book in this highly enjoyable series about a world of separate landscapes of light and dark. This title features Belladonna, who is a guide of the heart and the man of her dreams (literally), Michael. ( )

Sometimes this book was amazing, sometimes it was too long. Maybe because I read it right after Sebastian and had payed so much attention to the «rules» of Ephemera that I didn’t need to read about them all over again. Maybe that stuff was written to appease some skeptical readers, but to me was quite unnecessary. I don’t ask many questions about fantastic worlds, I don’t try to make them more «real». What would be the fun in that?

That said, this book is about love. While the others always had a strong sexual component, I find this one sweet and romantic in a way that almost drove me to tears. Still tracing a parallel with certain characteristics from the Black Jewels trilogy, these new characters have become new friends of mine in a glimpse. That’s Anne Bishop just for you.

«Travel lightly.» ( )
