    sorry, can t get on board with a book where the protagonist falls in love ends up with the man who rapes her especially when the book justifies the rape and makes it seem like no big deal yuck yuck yuck.

    I love this book I ve already re read it four or five times since I first picked it up six years ago and I plan to re read it again And this is from a girl who very rarely re reads What can I say, I m a sucker for the old she hates him she loves him trope where the love interest is initially the mysterious bad boy the heroine sees as an antagonist Plus, the concept of every door opening into another landscape including one into an amazing library is wish fulfillment for me However, do not I love this book I ve already re read it four or five times since I first picked it up six years ago and I plan to re read it again And this is from a girl who very rarely re reads What can I say, I m a sucker for the old she hates him she loves him trope where the love interest is initially the mysterious bad boy the heroine sees as an antagonist Plus, the concept of every door opening into another landscape including one into an amazing library is wish fulfillment for me However, do not, I repeat DO NOT attempt to read the sequel I got less than halfway through it and then decided I would pretend it doesn t exist This was the first book I read by the author and then attempted to track down everything else she wrote based on my love for this book Nothing else she ever wrote even slightly compared

    After seeing reviews comparing this to the movie Labyrinth, but with a romance, I couldnt wait to read this book Yes I admit I ship Sara Jareth blushes Dara is a daughter of two magicians,but as she had no powers of her own she ran away from home.She became servant at a castle and fell in love with a young man who is the heir to the kingdom.They cannot marry though because she lacks magic talent seems being a commoner isnt too big of an obstacle for marrying,but being magicless is The sto After seeing reviews comparing this to the movie Labyrinth, but with a romance, I couldnt wait to read this book Yes I admit I ship Sara Jareth blushes Dara is a daughter of two magicians,but as she had no powers of her own she ran away from home.She became servant at a castle and fell in love with a young man who is the heir to the kingdom.They cannot marry though because she lacks magic talent seems being a commoner isnt too big of an obstacle for marrying,but being magicless is The story starts when she has embarked on her quest to findThe setting was quite interesting and mysterious,so in that way it was similar to Labyrinth.SarahDara also acquires a companion that reminded me of Hoggle.But I requireof a book than having things in common with a film I love.And this book has plenty of flaws and things that I didnt like.Many things never got explained or were repeated several times The thing is we dont get to see Daras memories,she just tells them to us straight.So there was some serious info dumping going on.And some revelations that were underwhelming.Something that happened was even disturbing like when view spoiler Dara is tricked through magic into believing that Vanian is her fiancee from back home and loses her virginity to him It was so wrong on so many levels I felt it was a kind of rape Not at all a romance They become friends of sorts towards the end thoughthat wasjust weird I mean you just get over a betrayal like that off like that hide spoiler I hated how another character just brushed off this

    Dara goes to get an answer from the Oracle, but she has to get by Vanion, the latest Guardian to get it While in the magic castle no kidding, an ACTUAL magic castle, imagine that she winds up finding how the Oracle came to be, what makes the Guardian plus she rescues people trapped in their own little hells inside the mysterious rooms of the no kidding Magic Castle.It was okay, but I don t like the thread where Vanion tricks Dara, seduces her and then she falls in love with him Not that h Dara goes to get an answer from the Oracle, but she has to get by Vanion, the latest Guardian to get it While in the magic castle no kidding, an ACTUAL magic castle, imagine that she winds up finding how the Oracle came to be, what makes the Guardian plus she rescues people trapped in their own little hells inside the mysterious rooms of the no kidding Magic Castle.It was okay, but I don t like the thread where Vanion tricks Dara, seduces her and then she falls in love with him Not that her previous boyfriend was much to write home about, but why in fiction do even smart, determined women fall in love with their dark seducers It s all so Harlequin Romance Windswept series


  5. The Writer The Writer says:

    I was honestly surprised with how much I enjoyed this read I honestly expected it to be a bit of a throwaway read but it was absolutely enchanting between the mystery and magic of the keep, to Dara s intrepid and determined spirit the entire thing was absolutely wonderul very interesting and with hardly a dull moment, all carrying a very beautiful theme can t wait to get my own copy and read it again and highly reccomend it.

    It may not be the most well written book I ve read, but I am starved for Problematic Villain Love Interests I enjoyed it well enough and it certainly did its job There werethan a few select scenes that spoke directly to my very specific interests.

    The ending is cheesy and predictable but the story itself is one of a kind I haven t read anything quite so delightful in a while I wish certain aspects were hashed out a little could use a sequel.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Oh dear Sometimes it s nice to re read old favorites and sometimes you read them and wonder how the heck you could have missed how terrible a book is Unfortunately this is the latter Sorry there are going to be some mild spoilers below because wow, this needs a content warning on it.SPOILERS Originally I gave this 5 stars And I ll still give it 1 star for solid world building and serviceable writing However the fact that the main character is raped and then gaslit about it afterwar Oh dear Sometimes it s nice to re read old favorites and sometimes you read them and wonder how the heck you could have missed how terrible a book is Unfortunately this is the latter Sorry there are going to be some mild spoilers below because wow, this needs a content warning on it.SPOILERS Originally I gave this 5 stars And I ll still give it 1 star for solid world building and serviceable writing However the fact that the main character is raped and then gaslit about it afterward is appalling No, just because he didn t slap her around doesn t mean it wasn t rape And there was so much unnecessary sexual assault and general creepiness She got used to her best friend watching her bathe naked he was always described as leering because he was a tiny monkey creature and couldn t do anything about it Except allowing herself to be creepily stared at while naked is not harmless when she didn t like it or consent to it There wereincidents too It s a pity because WITHOUT all this stuff the book itself would be a perfectly serviceable fantasy with many interesting world lets behind doors and a nice find your place in the world story for the heroine And that s the part I remembered before I re read it Oh well.Old review below Although magic and fantastical events happen throughout the book, much like Howl s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones, it is reallyabout the main character s growth and coming into her own strength and confidence Infact the two books are quite similar in tone and plot If you liked one you might like this one too this one has less humor though It s a very self contained story, not a huge sprawling world traversing adventures or a high culture navigation of treacherous politics

    Okay, so I read this book off of a suggestion that it was similar to Ella Enchanted, so I snatched it up and read it hoping to find a fantasy story with a strong, independent female protagonist with just enough romance to make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.And it was sorta like thatIt was similar in the fact that the main character was female and was written in the first person point of view She is fairly independent and winds up saving herself or whatever The setting is the good ol middl Okay, so I read this book off of a suggestion that it was similar to Ella Enchanted, so I snatched it up and read it hoping to find a fantasy story with a strong, independent female protagonist with just enough romance to make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.And it was sorta like thatIt was similar in the fact that the main character was female and was written in the first person point of view She is fairly independent and winds up saving herself or whatever The setting is the good ol middle aged times with magic and dragons and whatnot, so that was all the same as well And then there s the romance, it s there but it definitely DID NOT make me feel warm and fuzzy inside.Aside from the fact that the book was way longer than it needed to be, the writing is okay The style it s written in flows well and I got through the book very easily The main character is very meh She s not clever or particularly adventuresome She wanders through most of the book without a plan and most of the critical points fall in her lap metaphorically and figuratively.On that note, the guy she winds up with at the end of the book, he rapes her There are no two ways of looking at it He gets her drunk and tricks her into thinking he s someone else and rapes her But by the end of the book, she s okay with it, and decides to spend the rest of her life literally trapped in a building with him.Also the ending is alluded to throughout the whole story as some big riddle and the answer to the riddle is a huge letdown and not clever or well built up to at all Several characters repeat the same clue over and over until she just figures it out after spending nine tenths of the book having no idea what they mean
