Scavenge the Stars Summary ã PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Summary Ë PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ¹ Tara Sim E uncovers about the truth of her past And the she realizes she must trust no onePacked with high stakes adventure romance and dueling identities this gender swapped retelling of The Count of Monte Cristo is the first novel in an epic YA fantasy duology perfect for fans of Sarah J Maas Sabaa Tahir and Leigh Bardu. I might be biasedYou see since I was young The Count of Monte Cristo has been one of my favorite stories That probably says a lot about me in ways that aren t all great but the point is I know this tale I know everything Tara Sim takes from it in this update how she revamps it and how she uses it as a baseAnd as a Count of Monte Cristo storyit just doesn t really workI don t think it works all that well as a standard YA eitherThe thing I have realized about The Count of Monte Cristo is that it s not actually that easy of a tale to recreate It s complex and there are several factors that are absolutely necessary to exploit if you want to pull off the same level of emotional depth and suspenseFirst of all the revenge needs to be personal And when I say personal I mean personalEdmond Dantes is betrayed by close friends and associates people who he truly believed and had for many years were his friends And they betrayed him from possibly the worst place their own greed and jealousy You could say that Dantes was naive to trust them that he should have been able to see their baser natures taking over But you can clearly also say that this sort of baser nature is one that should never in a good true society take the place of loyalty and friendship You can easily see where each of these people turned to their worst selves when they had every opportunity not to and therefore they can deserve what they getIn Sim s book yes the men are terrible But what they ve done to Amaya isn t exactly personal She was a child sold to a debtor ship as a slave Yes they ruined her life But they didn t ruin her life specifically They ruined dozens hundreds of people s lives She didn t even know their names before she was taken to her Chateau d If They deserve what they get of course but in such a generic way that really she might as well just become Dany take down all the slaver nations and be done with itSo strike one Revenge is a good idea in this one but not any than it is in really just about any standard YA girl takes back her kingdomcityfamilylife from a bad regime story Of which there are manyThe second factor is bizarrely redeemabilityYeah you wouldn t think in a story about utter revenge and Yeah FING KILL HIM EDMOND YOU GREAT AVENGING ANGEL OF DEATH that the make them dead characters in uestion should be redeemableBut they are And it s importantYou see in The Count of Monte Cristo Dantes doesn t return to France until many many years have passed He s aged enough to be unrecognizable and every person on his hit list has had a long time to grow families and careers of their own They ve become in many ways new people though their vices remain the same And most importantly they ve become unuestionably important to and often loved by others They mean something to others and often they themselves have grown enough to if not fully realize their crimes at least be capable of moving on from them It s truly possible in every case to uestion by the end whether these men truly should die whether the crimes they committed however awful were really enough to damn them entirely so many years after the factSim s book touches on this a little She involves the children of the main needs to die guy and has her Countess feel badly about screwing things up for them if she does get her revenge But her villains are only that villains They have literally no redeeming characteristics at all And when Amaya becomes the Countess it has only been about a year perhaps two years at most since she was on her debtor ship So everyone on her hit list committed many of their crimes recently and in fact are still in the midst of committing them and yet crimes on top of that There s no uestion as to whether these men should be taken out of commission the son even comes to the conclusion himself before even meeting Amaya that his dad is no goodSo strike two Where s the ethical drama If the villains are just villains what makes this any different from any other YA story out there of girl gets back at evil menThird and I could probably go on but this will be the last the timeframe I have just mentioned It s really uite crucialIn The Count of Monte Cristo Dantes has many many years to perfect his visage as the Count He is proven several times to be a master actor and has built and used his wealth very independently since gaining it initially from the island He does not attempt to strike until he knows for certain that he is capable of winning and exactly how he will go about it He has ironclad plans We don t even see his perspective directly most of the time that s how important it is for the reader to believe he has it all in the bag It s only a matter of should rarely ever could In Sim s book as I ve mentioned earliernot so muchAmaya is still young She s being put up to everything by the Abbe Faria character who pulls her strings at every turn We see from her perspective that she s afraid of failing that she feels out of place that she uestions her own capabilities constantly She s been trained to be a Countess rather briefly She hasn t come into it on her own hasn t created her own character and owned it She doesn t know exactly how to leverage her own gained wealth and statusSo strike three How can Amaya be any different than a standard YA protagonist if she isn t given the chance to really flourish If she constantly needs to uestion herself constantly feels like a failure instead of being allowed to be the absolutely chilling badass that is the basis of the Count s characterUltimately as a Count of Monte Cristo novel Scavenge the Stars fails on every truly important levelAnd because it fails at being a true reboot of The Count of Monte Cristo it also happens to fail at being a uniue YAThere s nothing much new here from any of the other girl gets revenge stories we ve had in the past 5 10 years or so Just the basic homage to Dumas s template And what little there is that s new isNot the most interestingI m not sure if anyone here has ever heard of an animelight novel called Spice and Wolf But it s the best analog I can think ofIn Spice and Wolf we have a wolf deity hanging around with a merchant Fun But it rapidly devolves into a story about of all things currency How it s spent The different kinds TradeI stopped watching the thing at about episode 3 because it bored me to tearsNow a lot of people LOVE Spice and Wolf partly because of that sort of granular detail and partly for the characters etc It just wasn t for me It wasn t exciting the way a wolf deity tends to promise an anime will be Scavenge the Stars turns out to be mostly about counterfeit coin Who s making it what it is where it s going how it s going to destabilize the relations between the three major countries yadda yadda yaddaThe Count of Monte Cristo stuff really seems to be here mostly to carry the dullness of that background plot But because all of the most crucial dramatic parts of The Count of Monte Cristo aren t here it s not able to do that So we re left with another Spice and Wolf situation where maybe currency is your thing But if it s notBoy are you not going to be interested in this at allI ll give this one two stars because I didn t really hate it Maybe someone less acuainted with The Count of Monte Cristo wouldn t see what it s missing and would like it But the main thing is it made very little impression on me What wasn t dull was just okay I m pretty sure I will have forgotten I ever read this one in about a monthAnd I ll go back to enjoying my ethically uestionable Angel of Death story in peace
