The Fellowship of the Bird
Ruin and Rising - Leigh Bardugo

”It’s not overselling if you deliver.”

 

I’m very reluctant to call the overselling but I also won’t go as far to say that this delivered.

And if I had a Lannister gold nickel every time I start my review with having conflicting feelings about a book, I’d be able to afford a new book to have conflicting feelings about.

 

 

That being said, I am very conflicted towards this book. On the one hand, I feel I should have at least re-read Siege and Storm before giddily diving into this. On another hand, I feel like that’s asking too much from the reader unless the books were released in close succession, if not simultaneously. If the story affected me well enough I should be able to enjoy the last book in a series on its own merits even after having read the last instalment a year and 250 books read ago.

 

Then on the other OTHER hand, when I started this series, I haven’t read enough YA-high fantasy books to compare with. So I can’t really tell if it’s a matter of evolving expectations or if its the book evolving away from my preferences. Unless of course I re-read the series again, which brings me back to hand number two.

There is Nothing Like a Cat
There is Nothing Like a Cat - Rosalind Welcher You are either one of us or not. Cat lovers will smile their way through this charming book, and the rest of you all won't bother to pick it up. I like the pen and ink illustrations. Lovely little paean to the felicitous feline.
