SUMMARY Mélusine

REVIEW ò Mélusine SUMMARY Mélusine Alling charm And yet the wizard was looking not for Mildmay but for Felix HarrowgateThrown together by fate the broken wizard Felix and the wanted killer Mildmay journey far from Melusine through lands thick with strange magics and terrible demons of darkness But it is the shocking secret from their pasts linking them inexorably together that will either save them or destroy th. This book was a beautiful unexpected love I have bumpy relationship with fantasy Some of my all time favorite books are fantasy but at the same time I DNF d fantasy books than probably in any other genre And I don t want to say that ah ha Melusine was a better book than all those I tossed away It s just that it was a book that clicked with me In every possible way I saw in some other reviews the things that didn t work for people and I understand it but I think they were exactly the ones I loved most I loved the way Sarah Monette fountains with names places dates and historical events the way you can make sense out of some of them from context or by analogy and some don t come to mean anything at least for now but you still can enjoy the sound of them I loved the freuent change of pov okay with me being oh look shiny I prefer a story to be told in shorter installments rather than in too long ones Besides since for a long time two main characters don t meet and are not in the same scenes we don t have any redundant descriptions like A looked at B and thought change of pov B looked at A and thought We have two parallel stories where some scenes perfectly counterpoint each otherI don t think this book is a fantasy mm romance though It is rather fantasy where one character is gay or maybe I don t know if it becomes mm romance later and I don t want to know I m okay either way I m okay with everything there is in this book and looking forward to finding out what happens next yeah I know I will remember these words when I hate something that happens in the next books and I can bet I will but now I m so much in love Oh Felix Oh Mildmay I love both of them with all my heart It was Mildmay s voice that captured my attention as soon as I started reading and the I learned about him the I liked him And Felix okay at times Felix was not easy to like But with all that suffering that heaped and heaped and heaped on him and you know my love for traumatized characters there was no way I wouldn t fall in love with him And God did he suffer This book really should be on top in the tortured hero list on Listopia is it And then there were moments when Felix didn t suffer and wasn t a prick like when view spoilerhe saved Mildmay from the curse in Hermione or in the end when he told Mildmay the truth hide spoiler

REVIEW ò Mélusine SUMMARY Mélusine Mélusine a city of secrets and lies pleasure and pain magic and corruption and destinies lost and found Felix Harrowgate is a dashing highly respected wizard But his aristocratic peers don't know his dark past how his abusive former master enslaved him body and soul and trained him to pass as a nobleman Within the walls of the Mirador Melusine's citadel of power and wiza. M lusine suffers from two narrators Felix Harrowgate and Mildmay the Fox I say suffers because Monette switches between the two perspectives freuently than Bill Nye drops mad science truth Each chapter is about thirty or fifty pages in this paperback edition but perspective can happen as often as once every page Sometimes the characters barely get a few paragraphs in before Monette switches to the other narrator Conseuently instead of feeling like I m watching two separate stories develop and wondering how they will come together I feel like I m watching really badly edited shaky cam footage from two separate camera crewsNeither of these narrators particularly captured my interest or sympathies Felix is a wizard Wizards are cool right Except that by about page 3 Felix was in major depression mode Instead of talking to his lover about it he flees to the sanctuary of the wizard who once abused him and raped him The wizard abuses him and rapes him again and Felix goes back for claiming that he simply can t help it I m given to understand that this is a realistic pattern of actions for an abuse victim to take leave temporarily and then surrender to what they perceive is an inevitability So I m not trying to demean or diminish the horror of the abuse victim s experience here Rather I take issue with the fact that by beginning the story here Monette makes it really difficult for me to understand and sympathize with Felix We don t have his backstory and his full relationship with Malkar we don t understand what brought him to this point All we can do is snap hungrily at the litle crumbs Monette throws at us and hope that it s enough to see us through until the end of the book when she makes that part clearGenerally it s a good idea to begin at the beginning of the story which often means skipping over the boring parts in a character s early life Sometimes though a little context is necessary to keep the reader on side I mean Monette bothered to include a prologue that as far as I can tell has nothing to do with the plot in particular That seems like pages well spentOh and Mildmay At first his jargon annoyed me and I suppose you should take that as a compliment for Monette s ability to capture distinct voices for these two narrators Gradually his story did come to interest me and his voice became less annoying I suspect this happened at the same time Felix started going mad and his sections became sparser and less interesting Madness from a first person perspective is hard to do effectively Mildmay s sanity in contrast seemed to at least offer the prospect of moving this story forwardM lusine is named after the city in which the first half of the book takes place The book isn t really about the city though Monette has clearly created an interesting world populated by a vast and diverse cast of cultures not to mention a number of competing schools of magic that all view each other with suspicion of the taint of heresy She doesn t spend much time explaining these various schools though and while I appreciate the dedication to keeping exposition to a minimum there s something to be said for fleshing out a world beyond dropping an unfamiliar name here and there There is a fine line between exposition and description where dropping too much of the one leads to forgetting too much of the otherMaybe it s too much for me to expect a book titled after a city to be about that city M lusine is about how Felix and Mildmay meet the secret they discover that brings them together and then the journey they take to uncover Felix s past Unfortunately that journey is boring There are no monsters to slay no detours no uests They stumble across another empire book passage on a ship get shipwrecked and wind up exactly where they wanted to beThis entire book feels like filler like the setup for the real story In the first act Felix s master uses Felix s bound power to break the Virtu a magical MacGuffin that allows the wizards of M lusine to focus their spells effectively This is obviously a Big Deal a kind of magical terrorist act The fallout from this act however remains unclear and unresolved We don t know if Felix is supposed to play a role in repairing the Virtu We don t know if Felix will ever confront his former master and exact revenge All we know is that Felix and Mildmay are together and Felix isn t exactly mad any maybeA lot of stuff seems like it happens in this book but make no mistake nothing happens This is a book whose plot consists of dragging two characters across a world that is poorly described while switching viewpoints faster than a cat can regret jumping into a bathtubThere is a good story lurking somewhere in here with characters who can do it justice But it needs exposition patience with characterization and less patience with plotting M lusine really just needs to breathe It doesn t do that and that makes it very difficult for me to praise
