hoped I would like itsince I love Arthurian mythology.But, I came across the same issues.The retelling wasn t really a retelling Uther was mentioned a few times and that was it I couldn t see any relation to anything else Arthurian Then, there were way too many characters and I never felt as though I got a good grip on them at all, even the MC And then there was no plot to speak of.I wanted to love this since I love King Arthur and that general mythology But I ran into the same problems I had with her other retelling Sadly, I don t think that Tucholke is my kind of author I wish I read an encyclopedia instead of this book.Well, okay, not any encyclopedia A fantastical one A magic y fairytale y encyclopedia documenting the crazy cool little things of a made up world Written by April Genevieve Tucholke It can even be about the universe of this book, for all I care.This author is a complete full on genius at making up worlds The world building here is legitimately stellar.It s the everything else that I m not a fan of.This author is so good at creating worlds p I wish I read an encyclopedia instead of this book.Well, okay, not any encyclopedia A fantastical one A magic y fairytale y encyclopedia documenting the crazy cool little things of a made up world Written by April Genevieve Tucholke It can even be about the universe of this book, for all I care.This author is a complete full on genius at making up worlds The world building here is legitimately stellar.It s the everything else that I m not a fan of.This author is so good at creating worlds populated with fantastical peoples and cultures and places and foodsbut she is just the worst at blending all of those into an exciting plot.Seriously, please, I m begging Someone tell April Genevieve Tucholke that Walking for 200 pages does not count as an exciting narrative And also that if we spend 200 pages walking towards something, that conflict should not be over in a fraction of the pages spent making eye contact.I can t stand the pacing At one point our ragtag group of wanderers encounters a GHOST WITCH made of DUST AND MAGIC in an OLD ABANDONED TOWER they had to FLY INTO and she TEARS THEIR SKIN INTO PIECES Guess how much coverage this insane huge rad event gets One page The encounter itself, the aftermath, the discussion of it all together, one page KILL ME.I want to read about evil creepy magic witches of yore Is that so wrong And it s not like the characters are much to write home about either They re flat as hell Or maybe just boring It s hard to say.Regardless, that does not stop everyone from becoming obsessed with each other immediately upon meeting, like a fanfiction in which a 16 year old with a messy bun experiences two teen pop sensations falling in love at first sight with her within ten minutes Will she fall for the bad boy or the goofy lovable one Who knows I do The answer is both When our main character Torvi and her sister Morgunn meet a girl named Gyda, they call her their sister after literally one 1 day of acquaintance When Torvi and Gyda join a ragtag group of wanderers and one of the group leaves a few hours later, Torvi does everything short of dressing in black for two months and laying in the street to mourn Not to mention the departer, Stefan, straight up makes out with Gyda upon his exit and she reacts to it as if they are life partners Every one night stand and bedtime conversation results in a deeper relationship than I have with some of my family members.The second half of this was much better than the first, butbecause I adjusted to the state of things than through any actual improvement.Although at one point in the second half, a nation called Finnmark is referenced, which is easily the funniest thing I ve ever heard.Bottom line Probably done with April Genevieve Tucholke at this point Unless she takes my advice and begins writing reference tomes my favorite part of this book was something called the black apple, which is just an apple except the peel is black.pretty hardcore.review to come 3 stars thought i d finish this book in a dayit s day 3 and i just hit the halfway point HELP someone tell me to stop reading books set in the same world as books i did not like thanks to the publisher for the arc This is my first read from the author It s a bit of getting used to because the character and location names are so foreign to me though Pig Witch and its living situation is funny This story relive the past often, like how Torvi met Viggo, how the Butcher Bard came to town, wolf priest came to their farm, etc I m not a fan of flash back The knife dance is interesting and the Bard are sure bold to wear it in that place they chose I like the old beliefs that the needles of the red pine tree This is my first read from the author It s a bit of getting used to because the character and location names are so foreign to me though Pig Witch and its living situation is funny This story relive the past often,

that place they chose I like the old beliefs that the needles of the red pine tree can whisper secrets The siblings with the names start with i s are hilarious The cover of this book is gorgeous This book is told in the first person point of view following Torvi, 18 The snow sickness, a kind of plague, that comes once a year in winter and kills people This year her mom and a couple of servants along with her lover Viggo are among the dead Surviving at the one thousand acres farm in Voresland now are just her and her sister Morgunn, 14 They worry the wolf priests will come to hurt them They plan to wander Then Gyda came and told them she s in search of a magical sword Before they take off, Morgunn disappeared Now Torvi and Gyda join a group of Butcher Bard to rescue Morgunn Seven Endless Forests is imaginative and well written It s a bit dark for young readers with all the interests in slitting throats of enemies and animals I like the supporting characters of Madoc, Ink, Stefan, and Gyda The Drake and all of their knowing is cool The story on the sword is good I enjoyed the actions and adventures and the friendship even though at times the wolf priests are too feral for me I m a bit overloaded with this book because there s not one kind, but a bunch magicians, wizards, witches, etc Many thanks to Fierce Reads for the opportunity to read and review Please be assured that my opinions are honest.xoxo, Jasmine at www.howusefulitis.wordpress.com fordetails When I saw there was going to be a companion to The Boneless Mercies, I knew I needed it And this cover alone is golden Torvi was the perfect MC with an emotional backstory On her journey, she doesn t forget about what had happened to her in her past, but instead, let it make her new path stronger Madoc was probably my favorite side character, but I loved them all, especially the Pig Witch, too I always love Tucholke s writing so much This book was beautiful and strong and I never wanted it When I saw there was
