The Sister Mederos By Patrice Sarath

Summary: Two sisters work to turn around the fortunes of their family after a tragedy befalls them 6 years earlier.

What I liked: I liked the premise of the story. The main characters were fleshed out well. The scene descriptions were really well written.

What I didn’t like: The first half of the book was about world and background building. If the book was a epic fantasy that would have been no problem but this isn’t an epic fantasy. We needed the background but a whole half of a book? There was no action until the last half of the book. Then it felt like some of the story lines were added as a after thought. Just my opinion.

Star Rating: 4

My thoughts: I liked the premise of the story and I really wanted to like it more then I did. I just felt like it took too long to get to the action portion of the story. Then when the story really started to progress it felt rushed and was over very quickly. One of the storylines fell a bit flat with me. It was there and then boom that storyline was finished. One of the major storylines was tied up with a finish that I didn’t really like. This storyline took up a good chunk of the book, so the way that it was ended felt flat. I also felt that one of the characters was slightly unnecessary. The author is a very good writer and the book was well written. You can tell she cared about the characters and I like that in an author.

Release Date: April 3rd, 2018

I want to thank Bad Robot publishing and NetGalley for providing me with a review copy.
