Bonjour à tous!
j’espère que vous allez bien et que votre déconfinement se passe bien. Pour ma part, au moment où j’écris ces lignes, j’entame ma dernière demi journée de télétravail avant de reprendre le chemin du travail dès mardi 12. J’ai hâte.
Je vous retrouve aujourd’hui pour un roman qui m’intriguait et qui me laisse… perplexe… résumé:
Once upon a time, I made a bad decision.
I’d be the first to admit when I’d made a mistake.
Okay, maybe like… the third. At least in the top ten.
But the fact I was kind of married to Ellery Hebert, highborn son of the demon-born clans, wasn’t something I really considered a mistake. Mostly because no one but the two of us, and the nice folks at Sweetbriar College, knew. And it was kind of up in the air about whether Ellery really knew anymore or not. I hadn’t seen him in years, not since the day after graduation when I came back to our campus apartment to find divorce papers on my pillow and his things cleared out to the walls. That was three years ago and I’d moved on with life but I have the devil’s own luck…
Once upon a time there was a handsome prince with, er, assets like a peach and sarcasm sharp enough to kill a man.
When Simon didn’t return the divorce papers, I had hope.
I knew we would never be anything more than conveniently married, but the longer it went without him signing those papers, the more that little seed of hope grew into a giant tree of stupidity deep in my heart. We were never supposed to be together, not according to the demon-born and definitely not according to the faerie folk that had raised Simon. But still, I had hopes.
Maybe if I’d told Simon first that I was ass over teakettle in love with him, that would’ve helped.
Once upon a time, nosy relatives got involved and things went very pear-shaped.
Every magical clan, culture, and race is coming together to decide whether or not we make ourselves known to the human world once more. For centuries, we’ve been hiding in plain sight for the most part, living as humans when we can and disappearing into our little folds of the universe when we can’t. When my marriage to Simon is discovered by my mother and used as an opening salvo in the fight to get demon-born recognized as a part of the magical community, I had no idea how horribly everything would unfold or how it would end.
FR- Alors alors…. alors je ne sais pas trop quoi dire sur ce roman… déjà j’espère qu’il s’agissait d’une version non corrigée parce qu’il y avait plein de fautes.. dont une qui m’a fait mourir de rire…
La plume de l’auteure est… disons que le roman est un peu fouillis et qu’à des moments je me suis dit qu’il devait me manquer des bouts. Pour autant, c’est un roman que j’ai lu très rapidement et qui m’a beaucoup intriguée. On sent clairement que c’est un premier tome et que l’auteure pose son univers et son intrigue mais je pense qu’il y a trop d’informations en trop peu de pages.
L’histoire d’amour entre Ellery et Simon est mignonne mais là aussi, il y a des gros manque…. Notamment le fait qu’ils passent de meilleurs amis à amants sans se poser de questions.. ok ils étaient secrètement amoureux l’un de l’autre pendant des années mais à aucun moment ils ne s’avouent ne serait ce que ce point et s’embrassent et couchent ensemble comme si c’était évident.. aucune gene, aucune hésitation… bref, là aussi ça méritait d’être développé.
Je n’ai pas tout compris aux différents personnages surnaturels que l’auteure nous propose et je ne sais pas si ça sera mieux expliqué dans les autres tomes mais en tout cas, ça sera sans moi.
C’est dommage car l’auteure tenait là un bon sujet,malheureusement mal exploité.
ENG- So well well well… well I don’t really know what to say about this novel … already I hope it was an uncorrected version because there were lots of mistakes .. including one that made me laugh …
The author’s pen is … let’s say that the novel is a bit messy and that at times I said to myself that I must be missing bits. However, it is a novel that I read very quickly and that intrigued me a lot. We clearly feel that this is a first volume and that the author poses her universe and her intrigue but I think that there is too much information in too few pages.
The love story between Ellery and Simon is cute but there too, there are big gaps …. In particular the fact that they pass from best friends to lovers without asking questions .. ok they were secretly in love each other for years but at no time do they confess even this point and kiss and sleep together as if it was obvious .. no gene, no hesitation … in short, there too it deserved to be developed.
I did not understand everything about the different supernatural characters that the author offers us and I do not know if it will be better explained in the other volumes but in any case, it will be without me.
It’s a shame because the author had a good subject there, unfortunately badly exploited.
