Doctors Orders (Doctors Order, fHe parts I enjoyed most were witty conversations between Myra and Prince Vladimir I hope the second book of Nightfall series will be as good as Kingdom of Ashes DNF at 52% I will make him say he is proud of me Myra thought And then only then can I start thinking about killing himThat sentence was the last straw I can t take it any The MC is one of the dumbest I have ever read and I read theirst 3 books of Falling Kingdoms The dialogue was horrific It was stilted overly dramatic and it had no natural The Wolf Gift flow All of the humans in this book were just stupid I m not sure if this was on purpose or not The only enjoyment I got out of the book was the banter between Vlad Tristan and Armidathe 3 vampire MCs Apparently they are the only characters who are capable of intelligent speech and thought Vlad in particular I really likedhe loved to call out Myra s idiocy and I was rootingor his snark and sarcasm every step of the way Myra was childish immature and way too naive or this worldit doesn t even make sense to the story You would think that growing up a ugitive would harden a person but no Myra s main goal in life was to A Clockwork Orange frolic in the meadows and dance in the rain Barf It s not often I cheeror an MC to be killed but ughhh can we kill off Myra already and have this book just be Vlad and Co I would read that Oh and this WeatherWizard thing Totally extra and not even relevant to the story It was just thrown in there Dead Set (Dead Sexy, forreasonsthat I should know by the 52% mark But I don t The most intriguing part of the whole story gets basically 0 page time This book was 99 cents I will be askingor a refund A beauty and the beast retelling with vampiresYeah sure why not Also available on the WondrousBooks blog Disclaimer I received a copy of the book Magia de Sangue from the author in exchangeor an honest reviewI have been very very cautious with vampire books in the last couple of years In act I don t remember the last vampire novel that I read aside rom re reading The Historian and Dracula two years agoHowever I read the synopsis of Kingdom of Ashes and the many positive reviews and I decided to give it a shot And I m glad I didThis book reminded me why I love YA so much It was very engaging and it kept me The Ordways flipping the pages to a point where I skipped lunch with my colleagues in order to read on a benchThe thing whichor me was very original and exciting was the عبد الناصر والعالم fact that every step of the way and every part of the narrative was cleverly thought through The author took allamous and silly vampire cliches and tropes and she turned them into an outspoken joke between the characters Elena May managed to make everything that could have destroyed the book its exact opposite For example at one point Myra tried to pull a Scheherazade on the prince and I was sitting there worried whether this is going to be a real thing because it was so obvious And then the prince himself recognized and ridiculed itIn terms of plot there was one thing that was a bit of a cliched narrative and that was the act that while the book is obviously not doing the Scheherazade It Did Go Along The did go along the of Beauty and the Beast Watching the movie right after inishing the book just made me realize it clearly However I m not sure that at a time such as ours where we are so over saturated with pop culture it s possible to create anything that doesn t borrow A Wedding in Cornwall (Cornwall from absolutely anywhereCharacter wise I liked theact that there was a game of blackwhite and shades of gray Myra was on the same boat as me when I was trying to make up my mind about whether the vampires are all evil or all good or those are concepts that don t even apply to the situation For example many of the points the prince made on humankind were just as challenging as what can be said about vampires in terms of the book In a world where vampires and humans co exist and vampires have overtaken the world and wiped out a big part of the population I think it s still Japan-Ness in Architecture fair to say that that s nothing humans haven t done to other species or even to themselves The only reason why people generally sympathize with people and not say vampires or werewolves is simply because we are people But humans can be just as evil in a completely different way For example just yesterday a colony of griffon vultures in Bulgaria was completely destroyed by hunters who poisoned all of the birds If that s not monstrous I don t know what isHaving said all of this while I did sympathize with Myra at certain times I didn t necessarily think she was a nice person Contrary to what I read in the reviews of people who thought she was selfish and self absorbed I think that was one of her most likable traits in terms of writing She was a very realistic person unlike the perfectall I do is effing magic heroines of other YA books I wouldn t like Myra as ariend but I can read about her and think Well that s true And her selfishness is something that can be attributed to most humans The act that she is so ocused on her book and improving as a writer is to be expected rom any person with any artistic capabilities Then again she was sometimes obnoxious and she did make

Stupid Decisions So I 
decisions so I on the verge with her But I am also known among my riends as someone who is specifically very demanding of emale charactersAs is probably to be expected I really liked Vlad because I would say that I both appreciated his attitude and got where he was coming rom He ollowed his set of rules and had a reason to act the way he did I m a vampire followed his set of rules and had a reason to act the way he did I m a vampire nature reuires me to drink blood so I drink blood I like art humans make art I like humans The endI am really excited or the next book in the series I really hope it comes sooner rather than later I m so happy vampires were just vampires and not vampyrs vampyres etc and magic was just magic instead of magik or magick. The vampires’ palace With time running out she must Psychopharmacology of Herbal Medicine find a way to stop Prince Vladimir and every wrong step leads to the death of innocents Her battle abilities prove useless but Myra discovers she has another skill that can give her an edge over her captors Now Myra must defeat the vampire leader at a power game he has been playingor almost two millenni. Gain control But Myra becomes a captive of Prince Vladimir a vampire who is as complexly layered as an onion or was that ogres and who in a surprisingly Sherlockian manner desires to Six find an eual in theorm of a worthy opponent Myra realises that she can give the vampires the one thing they don t have human creativityAt this point you re probably thinking Oh no not another book about vampires When will this plague end When will the world be rid of this clich d creature But don t Bandscheiben-Leiden - Was tun?: Mit den besten bungen fr den Alltag fear Kingdom of Ashes is an original and worthy addition to the genreFor one the story is uniue as there is no romance between the main character and any of the vampires Even without romance this book does noteel lacking I only wish there were authors out there who realise YA doesn t need to be synonymous with romanceMay also articulated the human need to create clearly than any other book I have read Through Myra and Tristan creativity can be seen as it truly is not a want but a need May has captured this theme in such a Lady Janes Nemesis frank way Iind this easily relatable So much so that I A Texas Rangers Family (The Stone Family felt the need to attempt some music inspired by May s book if I were Prince Vladimir critiuing this book and making suggestions I would suggest this add cliff hangers I understand that Kingdom of Ashes is character driven than plot driven but when you ve got the Prince throwing his weight around by threatening Myra you ve got an opportunity to make the reader well read As it is the chapters in Kingdom of Asheseel rather self contained similar to though not the same as Jennifer Egan s A Visit Racialization, Crime, and Criminal Justice in Canada from the Goon Suad you can read any chapter at random and it wouldeel like a satisfying short story If you were to move some of the text to the Computers following chapter you could create tension For example when Prince Vladimir is about to kill the human boy to teach Myra a lesson end the chapter there Let usind out in the chapter after that whether he lives or diesOverall I Before You found this to be an interesting read I m hoping book two Men and Monsters not to be confused with Patrick Ness Monsters of Men willill in some of the blanks in characters backgrounds see Armida transform A History of the Guyanese Working People, 1881-1905 from a uiet somewhat submissive character to a powerful princess andurther the relationships of some of the characters Utterly alluring and remarkable This story was set in a dystopian Blackfrost (Wytch Kings, future where humanity is at the brink of annihilation When I started this book I was struck by how Ms May created a terrifying realityor humans who survived a harrowing extermination attempt I so enjoyed the attention to detail that explained the positions of both the side of the vampires and the humans in this conflict I was drawn to Stupid men jokes feel compassionor both species in this war and it can be compared to many past events that have occurred in our own historiesMyra is a great character She is na ve and overly confident and that leads her into absolute disaster I enjoy her naivet because given her role in the world she is living in I think she is spot on She would be idealistic and hopeful having not truly experienced her reality beyond the caves but when she is aced with reality she develops into a ninja of subterfuge and I love it Throughout everything she strives to
Maintain Her Humanity And 
her humanity and her number one goal in mindThe relationship between Prince Vladimir and Myra reminded me strongly of the relationship between Scheherazade and Shahryar rom One Thousand and One Nights or as often known in English as the Arabian Nights The parallel that I see is that Vlad spared the life of Myra because she captured his interest through a skill she exhibited and it is this skill set that he has become invested in and in turn keeps her alive If you are unfamiliar with that and in turn keeps her alive If you are unfamiliar with that there is also a similarity with Wesley The Benn Diaries Vol. 2 from The Princess Bride and the Dread Pirate Roberts Who doesn t love that bookVery interesting that Vlad has such aocus on Myra I spent much time trying to Macroeconomics figure out what it was that he wantedrom her What was he preparing her Out for Was it as simple as what they were suggesting I loved that I did not knowor sure It was also a bit The Hero (Thunder Point, frustrating and confusing because it was so outside the normor this genre but it was clearly what kept me Longarm and the Dynamite Damsel (Longarm, fascinated Iound it appealing that there was so much Stolen by the Sheikh focus on her uniue skill set I enjoyed that theocus was not The Eight Human Talents fleeting and that there was much discussion and building around the subject I am sorry to be speaking in such vague terms but it is a large part of the overall story development and I cringe to give it away This was an amazing debut novel and I encourage you all to give thisirst installment in the Nightfall series a try It is sure to delight youThank you to Author Elena May A Vacation with the Lord for this eARC of Kingdom of AshesThis review is based on an eARC I receivedrom Author Elena May It is an honest and voluntary review and the advanced receipt of it in no way affected my review or ratingFind this review and at The Genre Minx Book Reviews She had become the author of her own The Internet and Democratic Citizenship fate And Elena May became the author of a remarkable debutI hadn t read a bookocusing solely on vampires Mr. Wuffles! for a very long time I went through my vampire phase in high school meaning I attended every single Twilight premiere and hung Edward posters on my bedroom walls andought Damon Salvatore s Cool Women fans online Stefan girl here and dressed up as a vamprire on Halloween etc Later I decided that I grew up and was too oldor this I want to thank Elena May Ravens Gate (The Power of Five: The Graphic Novels, for sending me aree copy of Kingdom of Ashes To be honest I had some prejudices against YA novels and I expected it to have a dull and common storyline but after I had some prejudices against YA novels and I expected it to have a dull and common storyline but after Kingdom of Ashes my opinion changed in a good way I think Myra shows us you do not need to be physically strong to be called a heroine In Disintegration of Alan fact Myra s writing skills are her only weapon Wl out of their caves and conuer allVampires rule over the New World breeding humansor Foreplay (The Ivy Chronicles, food Afterifty years of guerrilla warfare the Resistance is Murder in the Dark (Ishmael Jones, fading its supplies dwindling They must rally and succeed and soon or all hope of restoring human civilization will be lostWhen Myra goes on a desperate mission to help the Resistance she ends up a captive in.
