Christelle Dabos Ò Les Fiancés de l'hiver pdf

Clan des Dragons La jeune fille doit uitter sa famille et le suivre à la Citacielle capitale flottante du Pôle À uelle fin a t elle été choisiePouruoi doit elle dissimuler sa véritable identitéSans le savoir Ophélie dev DNF'd on page 185491Thank you so much to Text Publishing Australia for sending a copy of this to me Unfortunately I just couldn't get into it The first chapter was so promising with so much atmosphere and it had it's own distinct magical vibe that made me think I was going to love this book However as I kept reading I kept encountering and problems For example on page 49 A nanny pushed a pram while blushing at the admiring whistles of workmen up scaffolding Ughhhhh why are we insinuating that this is a normal thing that women should blush when disgusting men do this ALSO I thought this was a children's book so I was super upset that lines like this were used without being challenged but as I read and of the book I realised this is certainly NOT a children's book We have another character calling a woman a slut just because she was sleeping with her brother and we have another character who ugh let me just show you Archibald finally let out a deep sigh I'll admit to you that I'm a little disappointed It would have been frightfully amusing to have Thorn's betrothed at my disposalAnd why's that she asked frowningWell to deflower her of courseLIKE SERIOUSLYI'm just done with this book The storyline itself isn't even interesting enough for me to continue with it and the main characters are EXTREMELY bland SUPER BUMMED

Les Fiancés de l'hiverSous son écharpe élimée et ses lunettes de myope Ophélie cache des dons singuliers elle peut lire le passé des objets et traverser les miroirs Elle vit paisiblement sur l'Arche d'Anima uand on la fiance à Thorn du puissant A novel that takes place in a world so similar yet different to our own God has gotten angry and smashed the world into little pieces It sees Ophelia travel to a distant ark as these fragments of the world are now called for an arranged marriage to Thorn the Pole ark's treasurer Ophelia has certain gifts just by touching an object she can read the feelings and mindset of people who have previously touched that object and she also has the ability to travel through mirrors Yet others have powerful abilities and she fails to see why someone as insignificant as herself has been reuested as Thorn's wife She finds that people on the Pole ark aren't always as they seem some she trusted will try to betray her but she also finds some unexpected allies What follows is a tale of political intrigue manipulation and secrets as Ophelia finds that the truth is scarier than she first thought and those around her find her stronger than she looksI really enjoyed this book whipping through it in a couple of sessions Christelle Dabos weaves an amazing tale through rich settings and characters This is the first book in The Mirror Visitor series and I'll definitely be on the lookout for the rest of the series as they become available A first rate fantasy bookMy thanks to Text Publishing for a copy to read and review The opinions are all my own
