    What a spectacular letdown this book was No, it was not terrible by any means, but considering the previous book in the series was spectacularly good, and one of my favorite YA high fantasies, this book, was a grievous dissappointment It is the equivalent of watching Green Lantern after having seen The Dark Knight Sure, both the Green Lantern and Batman are superheroes are in the same comic based universe, but there s a fuck ton of a difference in quality.Really, I feel so let down by this bo What a spectacular letdown this book was No, it was not terrible by any means, but considering the previous book in the series was spectacularly good, and one of my favorite YA high fantasies, this book, was a grievous dissappointment It is the equivalent of watching Green Lantern after having seen The Dark Knight Sure, both the Green Lantern and B...

    3.5 stars This is actually a nice book, but Sharon Shinn set the mark so high with Troubled Waters , the first novel in the Elemental Blessings series that this one unfortunately falls short of great expectations The major problem is with the main characters Josetta, Princess of Welce one of the possible heirs to the throne and his love interest Rafe Adova, a guy with a mysterious past, who seems to be standing above the elemental blessings he does not have any and always gets the extr 3.5 stars This is actually a nice book, but Sharon Shinn set the mark so high with Troubled Waters , the first novel in the Elemental Blessings series that this one unfortunately falls short of great expectations The major problem is with the main characters Josetta, Princess of Welce one of the possible heirs to the throne and his love interest Rafe Adova, a guy with a mysterious past, who seems to be standing above the elemental blessings he does not have any and always gets the extraordinary ones time, synthesis, triumph that govern the Welchin society And this specialness is a...

    I wanted to like this a whole lot better than I ended up doing I already knew I liked the world and many characters in it from the first book, so I was anticipating this one being, if not as interesting, then at least along the same axis of interest Unfortunately, this did not pan out and most of the interest came as a result of having read the first book.Josetta and Rafe were just so bland Worse, they were largely passive, waiting for events to happen to them as they go about their regular r I wanted to like this a whole lot better than I ended up doing I already knew I liked the world and many characters in it from the first book, so I was anticipating this one being, if not as interesting, then at least along the same axis of interest Unfortunately, this did not pan out and most of the interest came as a result of having read the first book.Josetta and Rafe were just so bland Worse, they were largely passive, waiting for events to happen to them as they go about their regular routine It doesn t help that I have a hard time buying Josetta s shelter as anything even remotely possible, let alone as something that she truly cares about I mean, it s awful convenient that she can be gone for days at a time with no advanced planning and things run as smoothly as ever just as it is awful convenient that she doesn t have to deal with gangs or sexual predators or even liars and cheats despite not bothering to screen people at all The problem is that her ...

    I feel a little uncomfortable giving this a starred rating, as it seems I ought to have liked this book better than I did It takes place five years after the events of Troubled Waters, focusing on the princesses Josetta and Corene whose family relations were so spectacularly disrupted in that book Now Josetta lives in the slums, running a soup kitchen flop house only very nice and not at all slummy and Corene is trying to find her place in the world Gambler Rafe Adova enters their lives whe I feel a little uncomfortable giving this a starred rating, as it seems I ought to have liked this book better than I did It takes place five years after the events of Troubled Waters, focusing on the princesses Josetta and Corene whose family relations were so spectacularly disrupted in that book Now Josetta lives in the slums, running a soup kitchen flop house only very nice and not at all slummy and Corene is trying to find her place in the world Gambler Rafe Adova enters their lives when he rescues Corene, meets Josetta and is instantly attracted to her, which feeling is mutual.My main trouble, I think, is that I never really felt connected to either Josetta or Rafe Rafe, for one, reads as much younger than his stated 27 years Their relationship and eventual romance is handled as well as any such thing you might expect from Sharon Shin...

    You know, the setting for TROUBLED WATERS and ROYAL AIRS is pretty unusual How often do you find a fantasy where the medieval world is just now giving way to the Industrial Revolution Granted, this particular Industrial Revolution involves technology with quite a large magical infusion along with the engines But Smoker cars Elaymotives Aeromotives Factories where all the above are made We re mad abou...

    Based on several lukewarm reviews of this, I d expected to be disappointed, but I enjoyed this at least as much as I did Troubled Waters Unlike some reviewers, I wasn t disappointed in Josette and Rafe, either individually or as a couple I enjoyed both characters, particularly Josette, who is both sensible but feisty in her quiet way, and I enjoyed the slow build up of their romance.The novel is not flawless The pacing is off at times and the novel could have been tightened a little The trop Based on several lukewarm reviews of this, I d expected to be disappointed, but I enjoyed this at least as much as I did Troubled Waters Unlike some reviewers, I wasn t disappointed in Josette and Rafe, either individually or as a couple I enjoyed both characters, particularly Josette, who is both sensible but feisty in her quiet way, and I enjoyed the slow build up of their romance.The novel is not flawless The pacing is off at times and the novel could have been tightened a little The trope of the ne er do well who turns out to be a prince is a bit tired, and the plot wraps up just a little too neatly, but then the plot of Troubled Waters does too, if I remember rightly In fact, I think this one ended with just the right punch view spoiler Co...
