The Bone Shard Daughter: The Drowning Empire Book One
About this deal
As for Sand (now Nisong)...she annoys me, but what's funny is that what I dislike about her, I love about Lin. The real stars of the book though are, without hesitation, Thrana and Mephi. I love them so much! They made me smile, laugh, and feel and now that there are even more ossalens (that's what they are) in the book, I'm even more excited to read the next one because I need more cute talking animals in my life.
Out of all the characters, it is Phalue who doesn’t face her hardship alone as her wife Ranami stood loyally by her side, even when they disagreed. Although I never quite warmed to Ranami’s character, I felt her criticisms towards Phalue’s decisions far outweighed her actual support, I could see her rougher life experiences had shaped her to be more sceptical and perhaps less idealistic. Ranami truly loved Phalue, she just didn’t want to see her fail. This book was not at all what I expected it to be, but I was not disappointed. Set in a world where animal-like constructs are brought to life with the destructive bone shard magic that drains the lives of the Empire’s citizens, it is an immersive story that becomes more and more chilling as it explores magic, memory, privilege, and, most of all, power. I love how Lin and Jovis grow as characters during the course of the book, and how their relationship develops. I had an inkling at the beginning of book one that they'd probably end up together and it seems I was right. The Bone Shard Daughteris an unmissable debut from a major new voice in epic fantasy — a stunning tale of magic, mystery, and revolution in which the former heir to the emperor will fight to reclaim her power and her place on the throne. Andrea Stewart’s debut novel The Bone Shard Daughter, the first book in the Drowning Empire trilogy, follows four intertwining stories in a vast and rich world inspired by Asian cultures.Little by little, he’d become more than just an animal, but a companion he couldn’t see himself being parted from.” Sand: A resident of Maila island, Sand spends her days placidly collecting mangoes, until one day she falls from a tree and hits her head. As she begins to recover memories she didn't know she had lost, she realizes she has not always been on the island, nor have the others there with her, and she sets out to awaken them and return to the empire. But I also adored Jovis. He’s a tired, grumpy, and highly skilled smuggler who “works alone” and “doesn’t need anyone” after his wife went missing 7 years ago. I absolutely loved reading the growth he goes through, helped along by the quiet, steady companionship of Mephi, a talking magical animal creature who slowly gets him to open up. We aren’t sure what type of animal he is, but know that he is the best creature to ever exist. And yes, I may have teared up over a scene involving him… look away.
Pero, como sabes, toda historia que se precie tiene que tener sus malos malotes y sus dificultades, y aquí tienes unos ENEMIGOS que, en serio, a unos les echarías un cubo de agua fría y a otros no sabes si les harías un sitio en tu cama...🤭Y, ojo, porque si crees que esto es todo, prepárate, porque las dificultades con las que se encuentran nuestros héroes son de las que te enganchan tanto que no puedes parar de leer. a b c Lu, S.
