review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-07-23 02:03
In Bonds of the Earth
In Bonds of the Earth (Book of the Watchers) - Janine Ashbless

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

I have no idea where to start, seriously! The Book of the Watchers series by Janine Ashbless is SO complex and absolutely amazing that I’m just....... speechless really. This series is rich in story telling with a great research and a marvelous writing style where the author blends many dimensions, of facts and fictions, together in such a way that the only thing I can say for this series is WOW! I had to read In Bonds of the Earth at a snail’s pace just to savor each chapter.

I’ve never read anything by the author prior to this series. I picked up book 1 of the Watchers series, Cover Him With Darkness, because 1. I was in search of a good angel-demon type book and 2. I loved the title. And boy it sucked me right in from the start; from the moment when little Milja met Azazel the Fallen, bound in a dank, dark cave, for eternity... awaiting another eternity. Azazel is called a demon, a fallen angel, Prince of Darkness or Satan as I found in some sources. I’ll personally stick to the story itself because many of these notions discussed in the book connected to the Book of Enoch is rather vague to me. But that didn’t hinder my enjoyment at all. The whole story behind Azazel and his many brothers’ fight with the good angels and how they were then entombed in various places in the world is told in book 1. It was such a fascinating story, with excellent visuals, such as Azazel’s fight with St. Michael and the destruction of his human family.

Milja, a girl born in a small mountain-bound village of Montenegro, has known The Prisoner since her childhood. The Prisoner was there always. Many had been in charge of him over the uncountable years, her father the priest, being the latest. Milja’s mother was already dead, so her father has been the center of her world... until the day she started having dreams of The Prisoner, whom she’d only met a few times; always with her father by her side. Her father has forbidden her to ever communicate with the prisoner, let alone release him, no matter how much he begs. Yet, the sad, heart-wrenching dreams of him in pain, absolutely misery of many, many years tore at Milja. Then one day, when she was around 20, she does the unthinkable. She goes to the cave alone to meet him for the first time in years since she went to school. The Prisoner was always in her thought, in her dreams, so much so that she only had one boyfriend but couldn’t even maintain that relationship. She knew by then who she belonged to, and she decides instantly that she’s going to release him.

  Hot story! Mary and Max are having a hard time making ends meet with Max out of work. He sees an ad for nude models and tells Mary about it. While resistant at first she decides to try it as they need the money. Max also tries it. As they get further into the nude industry their lives change.

I liked Max and Mary. Max did make me mad when he goes on a spending spree as Fred, the owner of the company they are working for, told Mary he would. I liked the behind-the-scenes look at how people get into the business of nude modeling and then go further than they expected to go. I also liked how Mary and Max had their questions into their own motives as well as the others' motives and actions. I appreciated seeing the raw emotions of Mary as Max goes on his spending spree and Max's fears of Mary leaving him.

I enjoyed the story. I liked most of the secondary characters. I will be reading Ms. Winn again

You're a Terrible Book and Should Feel Bad
Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L. James

This book is hot garbage left out in the sun for six months that has maggots squirming all over it. 

 

Short summary, college student meets millionaire/billionaire with vague job description and proceeds to obsess over him for no reason. He obsesses over her for no reason. Surprise he's into BDSM. Or really he's into what the author thinks is BDSM. Cause it's not. Christian Grey is the patron saint of men's rights activists everywhere. He stalks, bullies, and abuses said college student and she thinks she can make him love her cause of Disney cartoons. I don't know. This book had every red flag known to man and then it came to a terrible ass ending. I refuse to read and review books #2 and #3. 

 

Besides the lack of development of the two main characters (Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele) and their general assholiness (don't care if it's not a word) everyone else in this book was underdeveloped. 

 

Christian because he's an alien who never met real people thinks that him being a dominant means Ana must obey him inside and outside of bed. She's not allowed to say no. She has to eat what he wants, work out when he says so, and he even picks her damn OBGYN. He also decides he doesn't like her going by Ana and calls her Anastasia or Ms. Steele at all times. I had flashbacks to Tom Cruise and Katie (her name is Kate) Holmes. 

 

Ana because she's a moron thinks this is love. And she's no prize either. She asks Christian if he's gay, proceeds to spread a rumor he is and just generally acts like a dick towards anyone else who may be having sex. She thinks can control Christian because love and whatever. She also calls Christian control freak and Fifty Shades at different places. I wanted her and her inner goddess to die a horrible death in a desert while someone read out loud from a better book than this mess. 

 

Everyone else wasn't worth mentioning. There are other people who are merely there to distract Ana from Christian and that's it. 

 

The plot was a joke. Millionaire/billionaire 26 year old meets a college student who asks him if he's gay during an interview and a whole host of terrible ass questions and he says that there is a submissive. Proceeds to stalk her at her job, at her graduation, and to freaking Georgia cause even though he says that he doesn't do relationships what he means is that he can't take not having her under his creepy ass gaze all damn day. 

 

The writing was awful. Besides that inner goddess crap I realized this book was littered with Britishims all over. Plus James is a snob and that shines through with her through Ana looking down on people who read books that are not classics written by British authors (eyeroll). Guess what? "Far From the Maddening Crowd" sucks. 

 

Back to the terrible writing, at different times in this book you realize you should be reading present tense but the way something is described only works if it's past tense. I just gave up. Most of the book is just the dominant/submissive contract, the contract revised, and terrible ass emails between Christian and Ana. There is barely any dialogue besides "laters baby" being uttered by Christian and his brother. 

 

The flow was awful. There's really no plot so you stumble from terrible sex scene to terrible sex scene. Shoot, go read Jenny Trout's "The Boss" if you want some hot BDSM. I tapped out on that series, but the sex scenes were good. Hell go read some of your mother's bodice rippers. This book takes everything we tell our daughters about how no one owns them or their bodies and just laughs at it and goes well if he's hot and rich than it's okay. 

 

The setting is Seattle, but besides a few references it really seems like the author had never been there. Maybe she watched a few Real World episodes for research and called it a day.

 

The ending was terrible. Ana is left howling in pain cause Fifty Shades can't love her. Whatever girl.
