    Passion Play (PDF) What a terrible cover for such an excellent bookSo the plot basics It starts with what looks like a fairly standard fantasy trope a young woman of a wealthy family runs away from an arranged marriage But running away turns out to be much complicated than it seems and then it turns out that the story isn't really about the arranged marriage at all; that's merely the impetus for a whole cascade of complex events in which our prot

FREE READ Passion Play REVIEW ☆ Passion Play DOWNLOAD ↠ FUTBOLENTRELINEAS.CO Â Beth Bernobich Ilse Zhalina is the daughter of one of Melnek’s prominent merchants She has lived most of her life surrounded by the trappings of wealth and privilege Many would consider hers a happy lot But there are dark secrets especially in the best of families Ilse has learned that for a young woman of her beauty and social. This is a First Reads reviewThe most important thing about telling a lie is to make certain its every detail is believable If under scrutiny even a fragment of it breaks down then the entire lie is exposed Now there is no lie bigger than a work of fiction especially a fantasy novel Not only have the characters never existed but their world does not and has never existed But through the magic of suspended disbelief we readily accept the validity of a novel s fictional world and view as real and meaningful its characters and their actions as long as every detail is believable Passion Play is two stories in one the first is very good the second is average Story number one features a swiftly moving well written enthralling plot with a 15 year old girl as the winning protagonist for whom we root and with whom we suffer So good were these first 100 pages that I had to force myself to put the book down Unfortunately after story number two began I had to force myself to pick the book upWhat destroys Passion Play where the lie begins to break down is the male lead Lord Raul Kosenmark When we first meet him he is described as having a very high feminine voice Shortly after we find out that in order to prove his loyalty so that he might serve on the king s Inner Council he underwent castration As an adult Five minutes of research would have informed the author that castration after puberty does not change the male voice And since his condition this error is brought to the attention of the reader every chapter or two there is no way to forget that what we are reading is not realWhat s unfortunate is that it is totally unnecessary to the plot Remove every instance of Raul s eunuchism from the story and nothing is lost Return it and nothing is gained In a world of magic an oath of fidelity could have been enforced magically One willingly accepts into one s body an infusion of magic that like a bomb may be detonated by the king at the first sign of treason Further we learn that Raul s condition may be reversed through magic which nullifies the value of that type of oathThis is not however the book s only breakdown In the last 200 pages Ilse our heroine who is 16 now becomes the chief confidant and prime counselor to Lord Kosenmark who is in a life or death struggle to prevent a war and save the kingdom None of the other older members of Raul s inner circle seem to think her youth and inexperience in affairs of state is a problem Yet this is the same girl who but days before was sorely distressed over the teasing and pranks of the mean girls who worked with her in Raul s kitchen But perhaps those other characters may be forgiven because once out of the kitchen Ilse thinks and behaves like a 25 or 30 year old woman Since the author seldom mentions her age the reader must constantly remind herself that Ilse is still a teenagerAfter the excitement of the early chapters the plot in the latter chapters drags to a halt The most exciting thing that happens is opening the mail and attending the staff meeting afterward Literally And daily Ilse is Raul s secretary and later his lover so she examines all of his correspondence much of which concerns the intrigues revolving around the shadow court he has established Then she and Raul and whoever else may be in house that day sit around and discuss the content of the letters Except for one hard to believe battle Ilse barely trained in self defense defeats two well armed professional soldiers the bulk of the action battles murders the machinations of Khandarr the evil magician takes place off stage the reader learning about these things through letters It is very hard to be concerned about threats to characters you ve never met or to fear a faceless foe Khandarr appears once briefly and ineffectually when he magically crashes a meeting looks around ominously in actuality checking attendance and then is shooed awayBernobich s conversations flow easily and naturally and in the first part of the book anyway the characters even the minor ones come to life Her depictions of Ilse s rape and later love making are tasteful without undue details or sensationalism For the most part her prose is lively and free of cliches though she freuently exhibits a first novelist s tendency towards verbosity Raul vented a sigh for sighed during sword exercises he made a noncommittal noise grunted at dinner he made a noise in his throat cleared his throat and early on we come across the bane of poorly written juvenile fiction or the pride of melodramatic parody when Ilse sheds hot tears These are common mistakes of a first time novelist and too often sins of the genre but the editors should not have allowed them to reach pressThe author mentions in her acknowledgments that it took her many years to write the book that she fumbled toward the story she wanted to tell and that one person advised her where to start and another where to end the novel Passion Play is dedicated to the redoubtable Sherwood Smith who Bernobich writes read draft after draft giving me feedback on prose and plot and characters Toss in the editors she credits with supposedly saving her book from all kinds of inconsistencies and infelicities and it s clear that many share the blame for its problemsAt the end when Ilse and Raul agree to separate for safety s sake a uestionable decision that feels contrived I felt no sorrow only joy that for a few pages at least I could again spend time alone with Ilse If the seuel concerned only her I would read it although given that she and Raul will be miles apart I fear the plot will once involve opening endless amounts of mail Public Relations Planning families Ilse has learned that Green Planet Blues for a young woman of her beauty and social. This is a First Reads reviewThe most important thing about telling a lie is to make certain its every detail is believable If under scrutiny even a Negotiating Gender Euity in the Global South
