Eloisa James

Published 31st October 2017

Paperback Original | £8.99

 

The first book in Eloisa James’s dazzling new series set in the Georgian period glows with her trademark wit and sexy charm-and introduces a large, eccentric family. Things are about to get Wilde . . .

 

Lord Alaric Wilde, son of the Duke of Lindow, is the most celebrated man in England, revered for his dangerous adventures and rakish good looks.

 

Arriving home from years abroad, he has no idea of his own celebrity until his boat is met by mobs of screaming ladies. Alaric escapes to his father’s castle, but just as he grasps that he’s not only famous but notorious, he encounters the very private, very witty, Miss Willa Ffynche.

 

Willa presents the façade of a serene young lady to the world. Her love of books and bawdy jokes is purely for the delight of her intimate friends. She wants nothing to do with a man whose private life is splashed over every newspaper.

 

Alaric has never met a woman he wanted for his own . . . until he meets Willa. He’s never lost a battle. But a spirited woman like Willa isn’t going to make it easy . . .

 

A New York Times bestseller many times over, Eloisa James lives in New York City, where she is a Shakespeare professor (with an M.Phil. from Oxford). She is also the mother of two children and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight.

Spoiler Free Review.

Ladies, grab a cup of tea, lit a candle and ask Mother Nature for some rain, because this is the perfect book for a rainy weekend .

Wilde in Love was for me, one of those books that I just needed to read. Sweet, well written and great dialogue  are the ingredients of Wilde in love. One of the things I loved the most about this book was the fact that Alaric and Willa were so different and you could see it in the chemistry between them that  was absolutely  sizzling, even if Willa declared she was unimpressed by him. I liked the secondary characters , especially Alaric’s family , which were a big part in the story and I hope we will get a book with them too, soon.

Willa and Alaric are one of those pair that they just don’t want to follow the rules of society, they are both sassy and smart and they love to push their buttons .And I loved it!I think that was the best part in the book.

Another thing that I enjoyed while reading Wilde in love was Willa, which was in my opinion , a very strong character. She had a voice, an opinion , a rebellious heart . She made me wish   I had a friend like her!

And let’s not forget Alaric and his pursuit of  Willa. He didn’t give up, even if Willa wasn’t impressed by him . She intrigued him at first because she couldn’t care less about his famous status between the ladies , but after he gets to know more about her, her intelligence and wit are a key factor  of his attraction to her.

And did I mention he writes books? About him and his travels.And now he is a celebrity with the ladies. And now I want to read his books too! I wonder if I write a book about my boring life …will that land me Johnny Deep or Brad Pitt? They’re both single now. Just saying.

If you like a  slow burn romance, with strong characters and lots of funny moments, this is the perfect book for you.

So please give Eloisa James the crown because she got me hooked on her new  series with a lovely story and great characters  and Wilde in love was a book I couldn’t put down ,except to make another cup of tea.

A big thank you to Piatkus Books and Eloisa James  for Wilde in Love .

I really enjoyed reading it!

Genuine fraud review

Imagini pentru genuine fraud e lockhartThe story of a young woman whose diabolical smarts are her ticket into a charmed life. But how many times can someone reinvent themselves? You be the judge.

Imogen is a runaway heiress, an orphan, a cook, and a cheat.
Jule is a fighter, a social chameleon, and an athlete.
An intense friendship. A disappearance. A murder, or maybe two.
A bad romance, or maybe three.
Blunt objects, disguises, blood, and chocolate. The American dream, superheroes, spies, and villains.
A girl who refuses to give people what they want from her.
A girl who refuses to be the person she once was

It seems to me that E. Lockhart endeavoured to write a novel completely different from her highly successful and critically acclaimed We Were Liars, which I read earlier this year and fell in love with. I thought that We Were Liars conveyed an atmosphere similar to the one I had experienced while reading On the Jellicoe Road and therefore it was easy for me to get absorbed in the purple prose, the enchanting setting, the mystery, the Sinclair family drama…

Genuine Fraud was nothing like We Were Liars, except maybe the cryptic blurb and title and the beautifully designed cover. In terms of the literary genres approached in this book, it is worthwhile to mention YA, psychological thriller, mystery and suspense, although it was not at all difficult to put almost the entire puzzle together. This novel was written employing the reverse chronology technique, which Megan Miranda utilized cleverly in All the Missing Girls. I presume that E. Lockhart opted for this story-telling method in order to gradually reveal the motivations behind the actions of one of the two protagonists  and the chain of events in which she has been involved and resulted in her being under surveillance. To be honest, in the case of Genuine Fraud, the story told backwards didn’t necessarily work for me.

I had been eagerly awaiting the release of Genuine Fraud but, unfortunately, it proved an underwhelming and unsatisfactory read, far away from the greatness and exquisite execution We Were Liars has been known for. Halfway through the story, my interest already decreased and it was certainly not a positive and encouraging sign, considering that a novel of psychological suspense, as Genuine Fraud is being promoted, is supposed to keep you on the edge of your seat from the first page to the last, in my opinion. While I will definitely read the next book E. Lockhart is going to write, Genuine Fraud remains a fast-paced and relatively short novel with a mediocre plot, underdeveloped characters and no surprising twists and turns

“Dragonsworn” Review

Sherrilyn Kenyon returns with the next addictive novel in her globally bestselling Dark-Hunter series . . .

51+ll8G71uL

There is nothing in the universe the cursed dragon, Falcyn, hates more than humanity . . . and in particular, Greek humans. In a war he wanted no part of, they systematically destroyed everything he’d ever cared for. Now he lies in seclusion, away from the world and waits for the day when evolution will finally rid him of the human vermin.

Medea was born the granddaughter of the Greek god Apollo, and among the first of his people that he cursed to die. But she will not let anyone rule her life. Not even her notorious grandfather. And when Apollo sends a new plague to destroy what remains of her people, she refuses to standby and watch him take everything she loves from her again.

This time, she knows of a secret weapon that can stop the ancient god and his army of demons. Once and for all. However, said device is in the hands of a dragon who wants nothing to do with politics, the gods, humanity, demons or Greek Apollites. And especially not her. He is the immovable object.

When Apollo makes a strategic move that backfires, he forces Falcyn back into play. Now Medea either has the weapon she needs to save her people, or she’s unleashed total Armageddon. If she can’t find some way to control the dragon before it’s too late, Falcyn will be an even worse plague on the world than the one Apollo has set loose. But how can anyone control a demonic dragon whose sole birthright is total destruction?

Hello once more, dear book fans. We’re back on familiar ground now with one of my (and i’m sure yours as well) favourite genres. Yep, you got it, the (in)famous  PNR. And this review concerns an equally well known book an author. It’s no surprise to some of you that Sherrilyn Kenyon is an old beloved of mine.  Same goes for the New Work bestseller “Dark Hunters” series, which has reached an impressive number of books (28 so far, with the 29th expected to appear on the shelves in summer 2018)

Right now, i’ll start raving about the last book in the series, a.k.a. “Dragonsworn”. *stares in adoration at the cover*. Since we’re talking about so many epic books, i’ll try my best not to spoil it for you, eager fans, who have no yet managed to read all 28 bundles of goodness.

The couple this time is made out of a very sexy and grumpy dragon and the very tough cookie who happens to be a granddaughter of Apollo.

Yes, that Apollo.

Ladies and gentlemen, i give you *drum noises* Falcyn and Medea.

Let me start by saying that i have a very huge, very weak spot for dragons. And we just happen to have a red dragon right here, with a grumpy, sullen attitude and a heart of gold.

The book starts pretty slow if you happen to be the impatient type of reader, but catches up pretty fast in the second half where i was bouncing like an overeager kid on the edge of my chair in my haste to find out what was bound to happen in the next page (i think i also fried my kindle this time, but God, was it worth it).

We have everything you might want in a story. We have a kickass heroine i utterly approve of (most of you probably caught up pretty fast that i have an inborn distaste for weak-willed females as MCs), we have snark, we have funny moments and excitement as far as the plot line is concerned and of course, in the usual Sherrilyn Kenyon fashion, we get some long-awaited questions answered and some brand new questions to BE answered in the next books to the delight and impatience of all concerned

Mainly me, obsessed (#veryproud) fan that i am; cue in the above gif.

To be blunt, these two characters rocked. They didn’t accept any crap from anybody, they gave as good as they got and there were some pretty fiery sparks going on in this book, if you catch my meaning *hint, hint below*

16269334

OK, that was pretty obvious and kind of impossible not to catch my meaning, So, if you don’t have this book quite yet, well then, pounce on the internet and make sure to hit that Buy button to the delight of everyone concerned because it.is.worth.it. And if you haven’t yet reached the 28th book, then shame on you, fellow book reader. How else would you know what will happen with this awesome couple, adorable grumpy dragon included?

Or even the very interesting hints about Urian, Apollymi and others? We even get to see our favorite villain again, well, certainly mine, because Morgen le Fey does the job very well.

So make sure to put your paws on the latest book in the Dark Hunters series. That is, if you like your men scorching hot and with emotional wounds that only a tough and kickass heroine can heal.

And i have a hunch you kinda do.

“Devil’s Cut” Review

In #1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward’s thrilling finale of the Bourbon Kings series, the Bradford family dynasty teeters on the edge of collapse after the murder of their patriarch—and a shocking arrest.

34528313

At first, the death of William Baldwine, the head of the Bradford family, was ruled a suicide. But then his eldest son and sworn enemy, Edward, came forward and confessed to what was, in fact, a murder. Now in police custody, Edward mourns not the disintegration of his family or his loss of freedom . . . but the woman he left behind. His love, Sutton Smythe, is the only person he has ever truly cared about, but as she is the CEO of the Bradford Bourbon Company’s biggest competitor, any relationship between them is impossible. And then there’s the reality of the jail time that Edward is facing.

Lane Baldwine was supposed to remain in his role of playboy, forever in his big brother Edward’s shadow. Instead he has become the new head of the family and the company. Convinced that Edward is covering for someone else, Lane and his true love, Lizzie King, go on the trail of a killer—only to discover a secret that is as devastating as it is game-changing.

As Lane rushes to discover the truth, and Sutton finds herself irresistibly drawn to Edward in spite of his circumstances, the lives of everyone at Easterly will never be the same again. For some, this is good; for others, it could be a tragedy beyond imagining. Only one thing’s for certain: Love survives all things. Even murder.

AAAANNNDD we’re back!

 

This time with a well-known personal favourite I’ve been pestering you guys with for quite some time, a.k.a. the all-time epic J.R. Ward. Today’s book review is “Devil’s Cut” the 3rd book (and the last one, unfortunately) in the Bourbon Kings series.

I’m a bit of a sucker for romantic suspense and southern tales, and since i get both of them in this book, imagine my joy and enthusiasm. “Devil’s Cut” was just as well-written and epic as the first 2 books in the series (here is me admitting that i absolutely adore anything that this awesome woman writes)

I got all my long-awaited questions answered and i got to see front row how  everything worked out for everyone.

If i were a weaker soul, i would admit that i cried like a babe at this last

instalment  of the trilogy and at how everything worked out in the end for my beloved characters. The saga has been for me something like a glorious journey, full of soul and even poetic sometimes (which i simply loved, despite not being the type to go all teary-eyed at soul-wrenching drama)

If some of you, beloved readers, remember “The Angel’s Share” review from a while back, then you’ll no doubt recall my comparison to that delicious old-school soap opera “Dynasty”. You will be happy to hear that “Devil’s Share” maintained the same air and writing style we all came to love and worship.

This series has followed the Bradford family through lots of good and bad experiences (well, mostly bad to be honest). We finally find out who killed Lane’s father, we get to see wayyy more of Gin’s and Samuel, who had quite the chemistry going on as lovers and we witness how everything comes together in the end.

Now, if only that pesky pride would stop getting in both their ornery ways, we’ll be all set, as far as Samuel T. and Gin are concerned.

I’m very sure it’s not just me who has been valiantly rooting for Gin and not so secretly hoping that she finally gets to have her much deserved happy ending. She did grow up and became more mature as far as decision making goes, and we have to admit that we all love some serious character development in a good book.

To sum it all up, my eyes looked like this at the end:

Add to all this goodness a compelling Kentucky setting and the usual scandalous moments we have come to expect from the Bradford family and I foresee some very generous rereads in the future for this one.

2lmtmah, signing off.

“Black Sheep” by Zara Cox

In a family of cold-hearted black sheep,
I, Axel Rutherford, am the blackest.
My father has hated me since the day I was born. The feeling was mutual. In the shady underworld that was my legacy, Cleo McCarthy became my light. She was beautiful, passionate, and my whole world. So naturally my father had to destroy us. First he sent me away. Next he claimed Cleo as his own. But now I’ve returned, and nothing will stop me from taking back everything that is rightfully mine.

He was the love of my life – when my life was still my own.
We were young enough to believe we would last forever, Axel and I. But neither of us realized how cruel life – and our families – could be. Now I’m trapped in a gilded cage: desired by Axel, who must never know the full truth, and controlled by his father, who would sooner see me dead than free. And I wouldn’t even care, except that it’s no longer only my life at stake

29453362Surprise, surprise! This week’s review is a bit of an unconventional read. Shortly put, if you’re under 18 or feeling particularly adventurous, well, either pounce on this awesomeness or look the other way.

This month’s dark read is ” Black Sheep”, the second book in the “Dark Desires” series by Zara Cox and let me tell you, we have Hot written all over it, with a capital “H”.

So if you happen to be a contemporary romance fan,  and you like your heroes dark and roguish , this is the perfect read for you.

Now, ladies and gentleman (but mostly ladies at this point), i will simply start by posting this:

I need my boyfriend right now and i’m not joking after this steamy read.

*cough, cough* Now back to the review.

But before starting one must always gently warn the blog’s devoted followers

The book is not for the fainthearted or for folks who are not into some serious also very steamy- dark romance. And by steamy, i mean steamy and by dark i DO mean dark.

So, if this is not your cup of tea, kindly run away.

Now, then.

Insufferable villain? Check.

Hot male lead? Check.

Beautiful chick? Check.

Captivating, dark plot? Check.

Despite being part of a series, the book itself is a standalone and pretty fast paced, the characters are flawed, human and real just like i like’em and if my inner fangirl didn’t have enough, we’re talking here about 2 rival mafia families. So, double the pleasure.

Black Sheep is a definite must read if this fits your kink. You basically have everything: darkness, suspense, romance and danger. Think more along the lines of dark and dirty but at the same time sweet and sexy.

Yes, yes this awesome author managed to incorporate all of the before mentioned and made it work wonderfully.

So if you happen to like your male leads to be alphas, tough guys no one dares to mess with AND part of the mob, then you most definitely won’t be disappointed with Axel. It helps a lot that the mister mentioned above is a complete master of dirty talking, sexy brooding style and… well, panty-melting sex personified god (no, i’m not joking here).

The only thing i did NOT like was the heroine’s personality. Gurl, for landing such a great guy like Axel and having the poor guy love you so desperately,  you sure lack in the brain department.

Make no mistake this book is still a 5 stars out of 5 stars, but it would have transcended the rating if dear, ol’ Cleo would have had more… well, brains.  Axel, if you ever get bored of her and decide you want better, i am single and available.

And this is why dear reader, communication is the key. It is something i have learned from my younger British literature days. Meaning I have read Romeo and Juliet and deduced that indeed communication is important in any relationship.

P.S. *SPOILER *this book happily does not have Juliet and Romeo’s ending, despite the similarities in the couples’ relationships. To my personal joy.

A big THANK YOU to Piatkus Books for providing me with a copy of Black Sheep for review.

O minciuna nevinovata

Cartepedia - logo
Livie Cleary a fost dintotdeauna catalogată drept Perfecțiunea Întruchipată, dar pe parcurs își dă seama că această perfecțiune nu este tocmai o fericire și că pe drumul sinuos către autocunoaștere este mai mult ca sigur că va face și greșeli.
În cei șapte ani care s-au scurs de la moartea tragică a părinților, Livie s-a străduit din răsputeri să se mențină la acest standard prin fiecare alegere făcută, prin fiecare cuvânt rostit și prin fiecare acțiune întreprinsă, în vreme ce avea grijă de sora ei, dând dovadă de tărie de caracter și de maturitate. Dar studenția bate la ușă, aducând odată cu ea provocări neașteptate care îi vor pune la încercare hotărârea – și inima.
Livie ajunge la Princeton având un plan solid în minte, pe care vrea să îl pună în aplicare fără șovăire: să ia examenele cu brio, să se pregătească pentru facultatea de medicină și să întâlnească un băiat bun și respectabil cu care să se mărite într-o bună zi. În mod categoric, planul ei nu include shot-uri cu vodcă, nici o colegă de cameră cam petrecăreață și nici pe Ashton, arogantul – dar extrem de atrăgătorul – căpitan al echipei masculine de canotaj. Acesta din urmă o face pe Livie, care de obicei este atât de stăpână pe sine, să ardă în flăcări. Și, de parcă toate astea nu ar fi fost îndeajuns, el este cel mai bun prieten și colegul de apartament al lui Connor, care se pare că întrunește la perfecțiune criteriile lui Livie. Și atunci, de ce gândurile ei se tot îndreaptă spre Ashton?
Recenzie:
Am fost cu adevărat încântată să încep această carte. Mi-a plăcut foarte mult primul volum și abia am așteptat să-l citesc si pe acesta. Nu sunt sigura dacă așteptările mele erau mari, dar nu  m-am atasat foarte tare de personajele principale. Cu toate acestea, K.A. Tucker e o scriitoare uimitore. O minciună nevinovată este povestea lui Livie Cleary, sora lui Kacey. Livie  nu numai că si-a pierdut parintii, dar aproape și-a pierdut și sora si asta a facut-o sa se maturizeze la o vârstă fragedă. Livie  încearcă să urmeze calea pe care părinții ei o aprobă, devenind copilul “perfect”.Urmărind visele părinților ei, Livie se îndreaptă spre Princeton.
Majoritatea demonilor lui Kacey au fost ,adormiti’ si acum toți ochii se îndreaptă spre Livie, pentru că nimeni nu poate fi atât de perfect și nu poate crăpa la un moment dat. Dr. Stayner, terapeutul foarte neconvențional al lui Kacey, o îndruma pe Livie nerenuntand nici când Livie pleacă din Miami pentru Princeton.
El continuă să încerce să o facă pe Livie să se uite altfel  la viața ei, să se asigure că toate deciziile pe care le ia sunt pentru că vrea și nu pentru că ea duce viața pe care crede că părinții ei ar fi așteptat-o. Deci, cu sfatul ca a gresi este omenesc,  Livie începe colegiul.
Imagini pentru one tiny lieImagini pentru one tiny lie
Am fost extrem de încântata să vad lumea  prin ochii lui Livie, dar de îndată ce am început ,am realizat că poate nu va fi responsabila fata buna. Poate că va deveni puțin asemănătoare surorii ei și va fi lăsată liberă. Livie nu este ceea ce credeam că va fi. A făcut tot ce credeam că personajul ei ar face bine si mi-a plăcut foarte mult. Am tendința să simt emoțiile oamenilor și să mă concentrez asupra nevoilor lor, iar Livie este un suflet sensibil. Eram încântata să o văd ca nu isi mai plănuieste fiecare moment.
Îmi plac băieții răi care sunt într-adevăr suflete pierdute și tulburate, iar Ashton m-a făcut să mă rătăcesc, să mă îndoiesc și să simt. Tucker are acest talent de a îndepărta straturile personajului și expune inimile lor. În timp ce personajele ei sunt tulburate, ador că le înconjoară cu personaje puternice, le arată părțile lor nobile și include ajutor profesional. Aceasta a fost o poveste dulce și am consumat-o repede
 Livie e blocată într-o iubire complexa – Ashton, baiatul rau dar bun sau Conner, tipul perfect pe care părinții ei l-ar aproba. Care este calea pe care este dispusă să o urmeze – dorinta părinților  ei sau a ei?
Nu cred că “triunghiul iubirii” a fost bine structurat. Nu sunt sigura, dar pur și simplu nu mi-a plăcut deloc.  Un alt lucru care nu mi-a placut la aceasta carte este infidelitatea. Aproape întotdeauna ruinează povestea pentru mine. De ce am început să citesc când știam asta? În primul rând, am cerut acest titlu înainte să știu despre infidelitate. În al doilea rând, am fost sigura că povestea a fost foarte bună în ciuda acestui aspect.
Deci da, sună ca o rețetă pentru dezastru, dacă cineva inseala, nu? Ei bine, cred că autoarea a făcut o treabă minunată in ciuda infidelitatii. A transmis naivitatea lui Livie, prin aspectul varstei sale. Livie  face greșeli, greșeli stupide, dar sunt realiste “fiind mici”  și nu sunt făcute cu intenții răutăcioase. Livie intenționează pe deplin să stea departe de Ashton, iar Ashton departe de Livie, dar aceștia ajung împreună, iar chimia și conexiunea lor e incredibila.
Nu spun că sunt de acord sau chiar condamn ceea ce s-a întâmplat, dar nu trebuie întotdeauna să îmi placa acțiunile sau comportamentul personajelor pentru a mă bucura de poveste. Dacă înțeleg motivele deciziilor lor, pot uita după ele. Am făcut-o cu Livie și Ashton.  Ei au avut grijă atât de mult unul pentru celălalt si  aveau nevoie să-și sorteze problemele!
Per total, am găsit cartea bine scrisă. Nimeni nu este perfect, indiferent cât de tare încearca. Livie a trebuit sa accepte acest lucru. Mă așteptam la mai multă furie. O minciuna nevinovata mi-a placut foarte mult si abia astept să citesc următoarea carte a seriei.

Recenzie Cronicile lui Magnus Bane

Nu e ușor să fii Magnus Bane. Ca magician, este adeseori chemat să rezolve probleme altora. Viața lui a fost lungă și iubirile numeroase. Iar Magnus are întotdeauna grijă să se afle în locul potrivit la momentul potrivit – sau poate nepotrivit.

Revoluția franceză, era prohibiției, marea pană de curent din New York City, prima mare bătălie între Valentine și Institutul din New York…Magnus s-a aflat de fiecare dată acolo și de obicei în miezul acțiunii. Dar să o scoată pe Maria Antoaneta din Franța nu e nimic față de iubirea lui pentru vampirul Camille Belcourt – sau prima întâlnire cu Alec Lightwood.

Deși povestea lui Magnus e departe de a se fi încheiat, toate aceste istorioare aruncă puțină lumină asupra firii sale adeseori enigmatice. Ce se întâmplă când un magician nemuritor își pierde mințile? Sunt toți membrii familiei Herondale la fel de imprevizibili ca Will? (Răspunsul este: da)

Ce s-a întâmplat de fapt la Hotelul Dumort?

Cum a devenit vampir Raphael Santiago? Ce îi cumperi iubitului tău vânător de umbre cu care nu ieși în mod oficial? Și de ce a fost Magnus alungat din Peru?

Magnus nu va putea niciodată să-și spună toate poveștile sale. Nimeni nu-l va crede. Dar aveți aici unsprezece povestiri care vă pot ajuta să-l înțelegeți mai bine – și despre care își dorește probabil să nu se afle niciodată.

Recenzie:

 

Iubesc foarte mult seriile Instrumente Mortale si Dispozitive Infernale de Cassandra Clare și Magnus întotdeauna a fost unul dintre cele mai interesante personaje din lumea creata de Cassandra. Sunt foarte fericita pentru ocazia de a-l cunoaște mai bine și de a învăța despre trecutul său care este înfricoșător de lung. Sincer, încă de când am început să citesc aceste serii, mi-am pus intrebari  despre enigmaticul Magnus si  secretele pe care le ascunde  viața lui lungă și acest volum a fost ceea ce am asteptat de mult timp.

Îl iubesc pe Magnus pentru că este nebunia personificată. Niciodata nu o sa-l poti incadra intr-o singura categorie. Mereu ma uimeste, ma amuza si de fiecare data ma surprinde cu ceva nou. Un start frumos pentru serie.

În prima nuvelă calatorim cu Magnus în Peru si avem alte cateva aventuri care au fost foarte distractive și m-au făcut să râd cu voce tare de cele mai multe ori, dar de asemenea, vedem puțin din inima adevăratului Magnus, nu doar cel care face întotdeauna remarci sarcastice sau este  nonsalant.

Discutiile dintre Magnus și Ragnor și personalitatea lui Magnus fac din această carte o lectura foarte plăcută. Volumul  include maimuțe păianjen, pirați, covoare zburătoare și băuturi exotice, preferatele lui Magnus. Deci, evident, am iubit fiecare poveste in parte!

Nu sunt sigura ce s-a întâmplat cu adevărat în Peru, dar această  nuvela fost  plina de magie, distracție și, de asemenea, tristă. Printre toate hainele și aventurile strălucitoare există câteva momente dureroase în care Magnus analizează costul real al vieții. Eternitatea poate fi singuratica!
Dar oricum, cartea  ne-a aratat  o poveste minunată despre măreția lui Magnus Bane și abia aștept să citesc mai mult!

Ceea ce mi-a placut enorm la acest volum de nuvele au fost ilustratiile fiecarei nuvele.

 

A fost lectura scurtă, foarte distractivă și care m-a facut ssa il indragesc mai mult pe Magnus , nu ca nu il indrageam inainte , dar vazand totul prin ochii lui, este imposibil sa nu te simti conectat/a in poveste si amintirile lui .
