Time There Are Times Whenthere are times when though why The City in Mind do theyo this why can t it be over with and are expanding this situation I was not expecting to see another selection and i think this was the ownside for me I was not expecting to see another selection and i think this was the ownside for me this book i o not think it was creative enough As for the final i was expecting it and at the Same Time I Was time i was let me explain i was expecting something to happen but not the exact thing that happens Almost until the end i was not sure myself who i want Charm to end up with and now i really want to see Despite the massive amounts of grammar mistakes the storyline was ecent though a might too predictable You know who the regent is fairly early on Still it s a fluff piece and reads like one which is good to take your mind off things In that respect it The City Of Heavenly Tranquillity does its job Hitsiscrimination pretty hard which is nice and a good point in the storyHowever without going into too much Penguins Poems for Life detail it needs a good grammatical clean up There were formatting issues punctuation mistakes misspellings awkward sentence structures and a few homonym issuesAs for the story itself my biggest gripe The inconsistencies in the plot and characters At one point we re told this is the first time Charmaine isn t looking forward to going on camera What The whole first book we read about how much she hated it and now she suddenly likes it Nope Can tisregard such a huge inconsistency And there were others but this was one of the most notable Also another thing that bugged me was what royal gets to have as much freedom as she seems to have I can t think of any high profile person who would truly be allowed to isregard their safety as much as she oes Strolling literally everywhere without a guard Being concerned about her virtue and public opinion yet constantly being alone with men The I think about it the annoyed I get so I need to stop nowFor my clean readers language though no f bomb in this one Mild violence including attempted murder of a child A few bedroom scenes mostly escriptive of the male upper body and making out but many thoughts on sex itself So much pretense So high risk of betrayal And yet she must o her best to lead the kingdom After her father s Divine Beauty death Charm is now the ueen of Silverwood but her task is not an easy one After the rule of terror hate and fear the Magi are hiding abroad and not willing to returnespite the changed laws of acceptance and euality The former king s rule is simply ingrained too much and the non Magi citizens are afraid of magic Moreover wedding preparations are now full in the running When Luca invites Charm for a journey to Thalia she is glad for the Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone distraction only to meet Cynder again and spiral headfirst back into the mess her life used to be When a contest is opened the situation changesramatically and the longer it continues the suspicions arise around Something is going to happen but no one knows the culprit The second book in this series is a great continuation to the reversed twisted Cinderella story Unexpected turns Down to the Sea in Ships drive the plot forwardeveloping the story with amazing speed The rapidly changing world is intriguing full of political machinations and ingenious strategies However what I enjoyed most was the Wife by Wednesday (The Weekday Brides, development of the characters With each challenge and each hardecision they were forced to think.
