On how Shea eventually escapes the prison of the lake's mansion.
Please read and comment if you like it! :)
I guess I can only work on one chapter a week since editing takes long as well.
But loving it!
“Good-bye, my moonsong and my breath, my white nights and golden days, my fresh water and my fire. Good-bye, and may you find a better life, find comfort again and your breathless smile, and when your beloved face lights up once more at the Western sunrise, be sure what I felt for you was not in vain. Good-bye and have faith, my Tatiana.”Tatiana and Alexander are indeed one of the most romantic and tragic characters I’ve ever read, more so than Romeo and Juliet to be honest. Their love and devotion goes far beyond the logic of what a relationship could be. This situation mainly fueled by Leningrad Blockage, one of the cruelest and longest sieges in history during WWII. The scenes presented as Tatiana survives will give you nightmares, I sure had some. The pain they suffer as the story goes on will break your heart, as it did mine. But once the pain is gone, here comes the loving tender scenes long awaited like a torrential shower after a drought, which instead of satiating thirst, it leaves you drowning and wishing for it to stop. This is the best I can describe the period of Tatiana and Alexander after they reunite.
“What little I had was all for you. It was you who was everybody else’s. But I was only yours.”I researched a bit on the other books, and I decided I will not read them as this torrential drama of combustible skin contact and foolish selflessness heartbreaks continues. I did enjoyed the first half of the book, though slow and morbid, as I felt for them, I truly felt for each one of the characters and even at some point found myself shouting at them while on the couch… but the other half was short from what I expected, too much skin, too little heart. It is not for me. For romance readers this is a must have, must own, must read and must treasure series. You are not a true romance fan if you have not read about Tatiana and Alexander. I, on the other hand, will continue my love for unexplored worlds and discoveries beyond our galaxy.
Among the chapters the author jumps from present to past and even to future with the visions they have. It might be confusing at first and soon it becomes much like watching a movie with flashbacks. Narrations from character to characters become memory scenes instead of dead dull dialog. And the horrors they live through makes you wonder if you would be capable of handling it as well. Hoping never to find out.
“You saved my life. You must let me thank you with a gift.”
“I could just as well say you saved mine. Neither of us would have survived without the other.”
“Then you owe me a gift as well. I will give you Apple Valley. What will you give me?”
