Rhapsody by Kristy M (Book Frivolity)

The Meaningless Moniker 'Mary Sue'

 

Firstly, I want to say how much I loved the first trilogy in The Symphony of Ages. Five big ole stars. As much as I am enjoying the new wave of fantasy, The Symphony of Ages’ grand sweeping world building, mystery/romance story line, and amazing travelogue, is exactly where my heart feels at home. The installments are long, meticulously detailed, with an amazing push/pull plot that makes you frown in frustration, then cheer out loud, then weep in sorrow, and then cry for the beauty of it. I will absolutely be acquiring the rest of the series as soon as I can afford to!

 

Now, I want to rant. Not about the books; the books have given me more pleasure than I rightly deserve probably. I’ve been bottling these frustrations up for a while, this annoyance has got my bloody goat way too often recently. This series has given me a prime opportunity to let it out, as it's a prime example of where this annoyance crops up. So here’s the deal, I don’t want to rant to people who are just going to moan that I am ranting about feminist issues. So I’m going to stick it in spoilers, and if you don’t want to deal, don’t open it. I have things I really want to say, but I really don’t want the damned backlash. If it’s not for you, please, don’t read it. If it is.. Read on… :)

In this video teaser, a woman gets handed a book by a stranger. Why? What does she do next?

 

This is an original take on the 'conventional' book trailer that encourages the viewer to, not only watch but, READ text from various sections of the novel, UNBOWED by LESTINE, a women’s action/drama, set in many international locales.

 

 If you’re attuned to women’s current global issues, long for a ‘new breed’ of heroines, intrigued by an unpredictable plot, provocative scenes and thought-provoking ideas, then you may just get totally hooked on this book.
