Don't know why I avoided it for so long. Probably rebellion against no new Kate stuff.
Anyway, loved the world. Loved the idea of implants vs genetic manipulation. Loved that Celino was stupid boy with no thought to consequences of actions. Loved the poetic justice of him rejecting her, only to fall in love with her when he takes the time to know her after she has grown up. Stupid boy. Should have kept engagement in first place. Stupid.
I wonder why Marcus didn't tell his lord and master whom he worships that the woman he loves moved in next door.
Would have loved more on that. Did anyone else notice that the whole clans who fight each other to remain in power is also in Grace of Small Magics. It is interesting because they are borderline same world, but two totally different stories and characters, so it wasn't until I was finished that I realized the similarities. ::shrugs:: They both work. Like Silent Blade better actually. Am fascinated by assassin mindset.
And I like the world better. Cooler. Want to know more on melding. Why is it called melding? What exactly is an ele-ribbon? Want more stories in this world.
0_0 I just looked over my post and realized it sounded sort of like the critiques we do in my writing class. Good stuff first. Then stuff that could be better and how to make it better. Oy.
