Mount TBR, The Backlist Reader
Fallen prophet, master of the elements, and daughter of the supreme Protector, Sanao Mokoya has abandoned the life that once bound her. Once her visions shaped the lives of citizens across the land, but no matter what tragedy Mokoya foresaw, she could never reshape the future. Broken by the loss of her young daughter, she now hunts deadly, sky-obscuring naga in the harsh outer reaches of the kingdom with packs of dinosaurs at her side, far from everything she used to love.
On the trail of a massive naga that threatens the rebellious mining city of Bataanar, Mokoya meets the mysterious and alluring Rider. But all is not as it seems: the beast they both hunt harbors a secret that could ignite war throughout the Protectorate. As she is drawn into a conspiracy of magic and betrayal, Mokoya must come to terms with her extraordinary and dangerous gifts, or risk losing the little she has left to hold dear.
About the book
As for the first one, I don’t know what this book is about … Seriously, why did I buy them?
What I think
It will be a short review, like the next two books (yes there are two more). The world is not characterised at all, there are things without explanation and even the characters are multifaceted, they have no character. I don’t like having polyharmony, I’ll be old fashioned, but that’s what I grew up with, with the concept of family. The fact that Moko’s husband doesn’t say anything when she goes away with her lover, makes me want to slap him.
The common thread is also nice, I mean the basic story and that is why my rating has risen by a star, but the whole thing has not succeeded at all.
I will read the other two short stories because unfortunately I bought them, but these are the worst spent 49 euros. Don’t buy them.
