Sweet Black Waves

Ingly saves the life of her enemy he awakens her ancient healing magic and opens her heart Branwen begins to dream of peace but the princess she serves is not so easily convinced Fighting for what's right even as her powers grow beyond her control will set Branwen against both her best friend and. ODAI ETI AMAI hate and I love I loved so many elements of this Tristan and Isolde retelling particularly those to do with the Celtic inspired mythology and magic The story notwithstanding I could walk around in this coastal setting of medieval Ireland and experience the whimsy of Otherworld creatures and magical lore all day It s a hauntingly beautiful backdrop to an age old storyBeing familiar with the story of Tristan and Isolde I was expecting plenty of melancholy romance and my expectations were met on that account I wasn t prepared for how devastating the ending would be however I could sense things spiralling out of control toward the end but like a punch in the gut it took my breath away at the very last I m still a little dumbfounded and now I must know how everything resolves because it s just downright not fair to end a book like that thank you very much My only wish for this book is that there was MORE More descriptive sentences and subtlety nuanced relationship development I continuously felt like I wanted to sueeze something from the book that wasn t being delivered and it left me feeling a little unsatisfied It s a highly promising start to a new trilogy and I ll certainly be waiting to see how this story untangles in book two Thank you to the publisher for sending a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my own

REVIEW æ VANSOUTLETMALL.CO.UK Ñ Kristina Pérez

Not you without me not me without youTwo proud kingdoms stand on opposite shores with only a bloody history between them As best friend and lady in waiting to the princess Branwen is guided by two principles devotion to her homeland and hatred for the raiders who killed her parents When she unknow. i am so conflicted right now on one hand this story is really enjoyable to read i have a weak spot for forbidden romances and the notion of love conuers all so i was really into this but then the last chapter happened and i now feel completely and whole heartedly betrayed i have heard of tristan and isolde but im not familiar with the details of the tale after throwing my book across the room in anger i uickly googled it and found out the last chapter is true to the story of TI had i known this beforehand i might have been better prepared to handle the ending emotionally but wow im still so bitter about it i really dont want this to ruin how i felt about the vast majority of the book but goodness me that ending really sucked and its not even the books fault so i cant really penalise it ughhhh i mean its obviously a testament to the uality of the story itself if ive become so invested in the characters that i am devastated over something like this so just take my four stars and i guess i will have to pick up the seuel to see if everything gets resolved it better or so help me 4 stars

The only man she's ever loved Inspired by the star crossed tale of Tristan and Eseult this is the story of the legend’s true heroine Branwen For fans of Graceling and The Mists of Avalon this is the first book of a lush fantasy trilogy about warring countries family secrets and forbidden romance. Title Sweet Black WavesSeries Sweet Black Waves 1Author Kristina P rez Release date May 5 2018Cliffhanger YesTime stood still There was no blood or fire no Iveriu or Kernyv There was only this only this kissI ve been trying to figure out what to rate this book ever since I finished yesterday and I think that deep down I want to rate this one star but I can t bring myself to do it The writing is truly captivating and masterfully done and for the uality alone it deserves five stars This is what keeps bouncing back and forth in my brain and I can t seem to come up with a decision for either that seems fair What I do know is that you can t read this book and feel nothing It s a tragic nightmare wrapped inside of a heavenly dream It s royalty pirates magic secrets ill fated love and icy foreboding like a chill down your spine With each page the tension ratchets until you re at an unbearable level It s not a matter of if something bad will happen it s whenThe story starts out innocently enough with a blissfully romantic attraction to a stranger who washes up on shore Delivered by those deceptively sweet black waves This attraction uickly turns to despair after discovering that this dashing man who recites poems and looks at her with longing is her kingdom s enemy He is from Kernyv whom her people bitterly feud with His countrymen were responsible for her parents murder so you can see why she is torn about helping this man who hides out on her shores But after some time there is a softening of her pride and barriers She sees beyond prejudices and long standing hatred and he fills her with a pure love that she never could have anticipated And I felt their passion Their desire to let the world fall away and sit in their own private corner and pretend that tomorrow wasn t going to bring heartache Tantris brought something alive inside her Something that couldn t be contained True love was powerful than death or dishonorIn the beginning Lady Branwen was the most mature out of the two cousins always watching over her princess Eseult and trying to keep her out of trouble in a maternal way However as the book wore on I began to get very frustrated with both girls Eseult most of all as her childish and self centered behavior was revealed in full color You would see glimpses of a loyalty and love that she tried to express but they were short and insufficient to convince me that she deserved the devotion that Branwen bestowed upon her She was bratty churlish and unable to forgive anyone for the duty she was expected to fulfill At one point she was even willing to sacrifice her life in order to save Branwen but even that didn t redeem her She proved with her defiant actions in the end that her own happiness was the only thing of importance As Essie became the symbol for uniting their two kingdoms in peace her impulses threatened that fragile tie to snap at any moment Branwen progressively started to make rash and foolish decisions as she tried to keep the engagement from falling apart So much heartache and despair could have been prevented if she had just decided to trust the man she supposedly loves and was honest with him Her secrets her plotting to solve everything all on her own despite being strongly advised NOT to made me scream at my kindle in frustration Her unbending loyalty to her cousin was like an albatross weighing down every decision she made And as she was entrusted with powers from the Otherworld there were hints of darkness fighting to come out Here s the thing I was along for this ride and loving every minute even when times started getting tough The angst and suspense was pulling me along by my shirt collar and I was running trying to keep up And then the ending happened ThatEnding That ending that ripped out my heart threw it in a blender and made a milkshake of destruction out of it I was enraged I m STILL raving mad and wishing I could rewind time and smack myself silly for doing this to myself WHY THIS COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED Truth honesty transparencyTRUST And yet the one victim who had their free will taken away was blamed and discarded Out of everybody only Tristan was pure of heart and caught in this tempest that he had nothing to do with From the beginning to the end I loved him In the end his loss hurt me the most Not one book comes to mind that came close to making me as angry as this one and yet it would be wrong of me to say I hated this story That would be careless and simply untrue But I think it s going to take me a long time to get over this ending and right now as I m still recovering in this momentmy rage wins out With the revelations that were unearthed Wild Savage Stars promises to be another bumpy ride Do I really want to willingly seat myself into the madness again This is a trilogy and for once I m thinking that all three books will be necessary in order to complete this story The hopelessness we were left with seems insurmountable Call me crazy but I don t think I m going to be able to resist seeing how this all plays out FOLLOW SMOKIN HOT BOOK BLOG ON
