The Escape: Soren's Saga (Healing Hearts, #3) by Nicky James 3.5 Review!
The Escape: Soren's Saga - Nicky James

Dancing, loud music, drinking and sex… 
Who wouldn’t love a job that entailed all these things?
After giving up on school and being cast aside by an unsupportive family, Soren Matheson figured he’d landed every young man’s dream job.
But… there is a catch. 
Not everything is as it seems and at the end of the day… 
Maybe even dream jobs don’t exist.

Remy Moretti lives in a world of precision and order. When a chance run-in with a sassy, sarcastic blond one evening upsets his structured world, Remy needs to find out who he is.
What he discovers makes his hair stand on end. 
The defeat and fear hidden behind the young man’s eyes gives him nightmares.
Someone needs to get to the bottom of this.
Until then, Remy will need to do whatever it takes to keep Soren safe.

TRIGGER: Sex-trafficking, abuse (off-page)

 

Review

 

This romance is very dark at the start and then slowly the light comes in. 

Soren lives is snarky denial of how hard his life really is. As Remy shows him love.

There is a lot of grit and sadness here as we see more and more of Soren's life. I am not always sure he is going to make it out but he does.

If anyone ever deserved a Happily Ever After, it is Soren. 

If you in the mood of an angst read, as usual, Nicky James delivers.

Tra ghiaccio e fuoco
Il trono di spade - Il grande inverno (Le cronache del ghiaccio e del fuoco, #1) - George R.R. Martin,Sergio Altieri

Era da tanto che avevo in mente di iniziare a leggere questa saga e forse anche grazie al freddo di questi primi giorni del 2019 il momento è arrivato.

 

E' difficile scrivere qualcosa di un libro di oltre 800 pagine, se non che per finire in dieci giorni un libro di tale "peso" la scrittura e la storia ti devono veramente catturare, quasi come se il libro ti tenesse in ostaggio come uno dei tanti presi durante le numerose battaglie svolte per giocare al Gioco del trono.

 

La cosa migliore per me stata l'uso dei  diversi punti di vista per portare avanti la storia. Ogni protagonista che racconta la sua parte di storia mette i suoi tasselli in una storia complessa, piena di intrighi e tradimenti , giustizia e ingiustizie ma anche di lealtà e onore ; tutte cose che si possono trovare nella realtà di tutti i giorni ma qui di reale c'è poco. Qui ci sono gli dei i meta-lupi, gli alberi sentinella , gli Estranei e molto altro. 

 

Una splendida lettura, che per fortuna è ( per ma) ancora solo al primo capitolo della saga.

What Do You Do When You're Awake at 4 a.m.?
Njal's Saga - Anonymous,Robert Cook

 

I had a restless night, more so than usual.  I'm often awake for a few minutes at 3 a.m., but this morning I found myself wide awake at 4 a.m.  Sometimes, if the right radio show is on, the program can lull me back to slumber.  A quick check of CBC radio found a documentary about this Icelandic saga--what is says about Icelandic history, society, etc.  Perfect!  I heard enough of the radio program to know that I'd be interested to read the saga and then I was unconscious again until my alarm.

 

Thank goodness for CBC radio!
