Recap: April 2017

Happy May Day, everyone! Before I drag myself into two days of house-cleaning (days off are so full of glamour at Chez Rainbow), let’s look back over what I read and reviewed in April!

Recap: March 2017

So March has been sadly lacking in the reviews department – but this doesn’t mean I didn’t get through some great books! Just that my writing brain keeps letting me down. Thanks, writing brain. But I shall get past this, and until then we have recaps! Let’s take a look at what got done.

Temeraire: Blood of Tyrants Part 1 – What’s Your Name, Man?

In the first part of Blood of Tyrants, we find Captain Laurence washed up on a Japanese shore with amnesia and a whole bunch of more immediate problems for good measure… This review covers the first 5 chapters of the book, and is brought to you by my┬áincreasingly conflicted feelings. Spoilers below.

In the final part of Crucible of Gold, emotional detachment seems to be the order of the day. This review is brought to you by weary reader caution. Spoilers below.  

Recap: February 2017

Temeraire: Crucible of Gold, Part 3

In the third part of Crucible of Gold … I don’t know what to make of any of this. This review covers chapters 9-12, and will contain major spoilers. Content note: for discussion of queerbaiting.

Temeraire: Crucible of Gold, Part 2

In the second part of Crucible of Gold, things get hairy as Laurence and company are forcibly marooned and have to figure out how to save themselves. Then things get hairier when Iskerkia is left unsupervised… This review is brought to you by a lot of God Damn It Iskerkia.

Temeraire: Crucible of Gold, Part 1

In the first part of Crucible of Gold, just when Will thought he was out – they pull him back in. This review is brought to you by my return to the comfort zone!
