Gaela. Ruthless commander. I am the rightful heir of Innis Lear. No more will I wait in the shadows and watch my mother’s murderer bleed my island dry. Regan. Master manipulator. To secure my place on the throne, I must produce an heir. Countless times I have fed the island’s forests my blood. Yet, my ambition is cursed. No matter what or whom I must destroy, I will wield the magic of Innis Lear. Elia. Star-blessed priest. My sisters hide in the shadows like serpents, waiting to strike our ailing king. I must protect my father, even if it means marrying a stranger.

I really tried to like this but I ended up hating all the characters and was just bored through the first half of this long book. The magic, star lore and “language of trees” was really weak. I couldn’t picture what that was because it wasn’t described at all.

Forty years ago, on Nov. 18, 1978, 914 members of a ‘utopian’ society deep in the Guyana jungle, known as Jonestown, drank a lethal elixir of Flavor-Aid and cyanide. Tim Carter was in the inner circle of its charismatic leader, Jim Jones. He escaped into the jungle. This is his story.

I’ve read and watched extensively about Jonestown and this podcast barely scratches the surface. I find the production potentially insulting to the survivors and victims. What’s with the cheesy song half way through?
The producers neglected to include that there were many guns on Jonestown and the victims were held at gunpoint while drinking poison.
The professor who lost her sisters in the massacre sounds snooty.
A rather sensationalized production.
You are better off using credits on “Seductive Poison” and “The Road to Jonestown” if you want to know more details.

The first half of this book I could easily give 5 stars. I fell in love with Armand and Marius. But around the half way point, I got really confused by the plot and the story skimmed over A LOT that I’m not sure is explained in other books in the series. Anne Rice’s struggle with Christianity is very apparent in the last third of the book. Some of Armand’s relationships seem weak compared to his passionate reactions to them in this section.

Overall, enjoyed it a lot but hoping for more explanation in other books.

It is the winter of 1985. Hope Farm sticks out of the ragged landscape like a decaying tooth, its weatherboard walls sagging into the undergrowth. Silver's mother, Ishtar, has fallen for the charismatic Miller, and the three of them have moved to the rural hippie commune to make a new start. But here, at just 13, she is thrust into an unrelenting adult world, and the walls begin to come tumbling down, with deadly consequences.

I really love this book, it’s powerful yet subtle.

I would just note that there’s a bit where the narrator re-does some lines and talks to the editor which wasn’t cut out. I personally don’t mind that but thought I would point it out in case someone really hates it.

Greece in the age of heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the kingdom of Phthia to be raised in the shadow of King Peleus and his golden son, Achilles. “The best of all the Greeks”—strong, beautiful, and the child of a goddess—Achilles is everything the shamed Patroclus is not. Yet despite their differences, the boys become steadfast companions. Their bond deepens as they grow into young men and become skilled in the arts of war and medicine—much to the displeasure and the fury of Achilles’ mother, Thetis, a cruel sea goddess with a hatred of mortals.
