پرسش های نخستین پاسخ های بی پایان ySHELFMY LIFE It s SUMMERS AT CASTLE AUBURN It too contains that rare phenomenon where the characters and the romance make me sueak with glee while not skimping on the fantasy world buildingHURRAHI did think about writing a official review but I think I about covered all I have to say about this book Sueeeeee 333 starsIf I had read this book in my teens I would have given it 5 starts no doubt But two decades later I found the story a bit flat mainly due to the fact that the only POV is that of the heroine Coriel This makes the scope of the story too narrow considering the number of storylines Coriel s her sister Elidandra s her uncle Jaxon s the crown prince s the Aliora s etc It does not help that Corrie is barely 14 at the beginning 18 at the end her world is pretty limited occasionally annoyingly shallow She was OK but not too likeable her sister Elisandra definitely stole the show from her at the end spectacularly WOW she is one cool customer no mistake It would have been nice to learn a bit about the Aliora race their world and the POVs of Elisandra Jaxon would have given depth layers to the book Concerning the love interests it was fairly clear from one third of the book who will end up with whom It distrubed me a bit how blind the heroine kept herself to the very end then WHAM she knew right away that she had been in love with the guy all along and married him almost on the spot the book ends suddenly It would have been credible if she had been given some time to come to term with her feelings spend some time with the guy developing their until then non existent relationship a bit before getting married living happily ever after Despite the negative points raised above I found this a lovely book an intriguing an easy read One of it stongest points is the political intrigue as usual in most Sharon Shinn books she is very good at creating this kind of tension who is siding with whom who is plotting against whom 199 Kindle sale June 3 2020 I really loved this YA fantasy Review posted on Fantasy Literature Summers at Castle Auburn was my first exposure to Sharon Shinn s fantasies and it was pretty much insta love for me I like to think that Shinn returns my affections in a distant and anonymous fan appreciation kind of way It instantly set me off on a search for of her booksCorie is the teenaged illegitimate daughter of a nobleman who died before the story begins but the royal family is still keeping close tabs on her Most of the time she lives with her grandmother in a remote village learning medicinal herbs and a bit of witchery from her But her summers are spent with the royal family in Castle AuburnWe follow Corie over the next severalears as she hangs out with her half sister Elisandra Bryan the stunningly good looking and knows it prince and heir to the throne and Elisandra s intended husband in that royal arranged marriage kind of way which doesn t stop Corie and a hundred other girls in the kingdom from getting wild crushes on him and Kent a serious Ska young man who is the regent s son For a long time Corie is totally oblivious to the fact that she like Elisandra is being groomed to make a strategic alliance ie marriage to benefit those in charge of the kingdomThe plot is thickened by a subplot involving the Aliora a lovely faerie like people who are hunted down and kidnapped by the humans in this kingdom thereafter spending the rest of their lives as expensive slaves to the nobility One of the most dedicated and effective hunters of the Aliora is Corie s uncle Jaxon a man she otherwise admires They make very kind and attentive servants and Corie loves them but it takes her severalears to realize how miserable they are in their slavery and "to figure out whether there s something she can do about it "figure out whether there s something she can do about it at Castle Auburn is a lovely coming of age novel it s among my all time favorites in the YA fantasy genre Though it s a oung adult novel it was interesting and complex enough for me to thoroughly enjoy The romance in it is uiet and subtle but appealing There are some unexpected plot twists that nevertheless fit really well with the storyline Kudos to Sharon Shinn for making view spoiler the handsome sought after prince slowly reveal himself as a despicable character hide spoiler.

N and how can she continue to love him knowing the misery that lies suarely at his doorThe third section ramps the misery up as the expected marriage is planned I expected to hate it even but it helped knowing that it was the last section and seeing Corie begin to take action was a good antidote to that despair And it isn t long before the pace kicks up and the story truly comes into its own I won t bother with details even in spoilers but things work out very satisfactory and I was than content with the end even though things slow for the last little bit The ending is so good in fact that it tempted me to up this to five starsIn the end I m keeping it at four because of the slog in the middle And because I m still not sure what to think about Corie s uncle Jaxon and at least some of that is that he was allowed to simply fall out of the narrative Still it s a solid four stars and it ends on a definite highA note about Chaste There s no sex in the story though infidelity and its conseuences appear We get some kissing but that s all that s on screen This story was a long way outside of my wheel house but surprisingly enough I wound up enjoying it It started very slowly but once I got in to it I came to appreciate the way the plot was allowed to slowly unfold without attempts to cram in superfluous action although there was still plenty of intrigue and suspense In ways this book reminded me of Jaculine Carey especially Kushiel s Scion I think that was the first book in her second trilogy in how it focused on the growth of a kid into an adult amidst a background of court intrigue albeit with less ahem mature content ie boobsWhile it always seemed that the characters their relationships with each other and their development was the true main plot the court intrigue provided a colorful and often suspenseful backdrop Especially the lush extended wedding scene that reminded me a bit of a similar scene in the Deer Hunter unless I missed it however this book didn t have any Russian Roulette The characters in this one were well drawn and were really the heart of the story especially the main character as this book was ultimately less about castle intrigue and magical creatures then it was about the coming of age of a Sanzoku Ou King of Bandits Vol 9 young woman and how she comes to realize that her idealized childhood beliefs the handsome prince her kind uncle are not what they seemed to be First posted over at my blog whereou can find book talks and general book nerdery I could die of happiness talking about Summers at Castle Auburn it was so charming and swoony It was one of those books that felt like magic It felt like cozy over sized sweaters a good cup of tea hot cocoa with big ol marshmallows blanket forts and sitting by the fireplace I don t know how else to describe it I felt like it didn t matter what happened around me as I was reading it in my blanket fort with my cuppa tea because I was so utterly absorbed in the story and the characters lives I loved the setting of castle Auburn and watching her come of age each summer while getting snippets of h Corie is the illegitimate daughter of a now deceased noble lord Through an arrangement made while she was oung Corie spends her summers at Castle Auburn home of her father She has a great relationship with her legitimate half sister Elisandra and a not so great one with her father s widow The rest of the time she spends with her maternal grandmother a wise woman of peasant stock who knows herbal lore and healingAlthough she is used to spending time with nobles including the oung Prince Bryan a vain oung man on whom Corie has a violent crush the regent s son Kent and even her own sister who is to marry Bryan and has a violent crush the regent s son Kent and even her own sister who is to marry Bryan and a ueen Corie understands that she is not really of that world She enjoys her summers b dreamy contented sighClearly back in the day the magical elves who wrote blurb synopsis type things were a lot spare and didn t know to include all the delicious bits that will and should entice ou to read the s There s a special shelf in my mentalvirtual bookcase Until now only Crown Duel resided there a little proud in being the only one to make it onto that shelf but getting kind of lonelyAND THEN ANOTHER BOOK TEARS THROUGH THE LONELINESS AND SPREADS ITS SUNSHINE ON THE.
