This book had such glowing reviews that even though I had a really hard time getting into it because of all the names I decided to give it a shot Well my review alas won t join those glowing ones Also spoilers aheadStrange that none of the reviews well those I ve read anyway seem to mention that this book contains lots of infidelity and Polyandry amongst other things and all of that directly involves the main two characters Right from the start there are too many characters introduced with long titles and non western names which made it all rather confusing The beginning just plunges into whatever s happening such beginnings are good for action packed books but not this type of a book I would ve liked it if the introduction of the characters had been gradual not all at once But I got through it trying to remember who s who wasn t easy thoughThe plot and pace interesting enough plot but events unfolded at such a slow pace that made me want to scroll There were numerous scenes where I wondered what exactly is the point of this scenearc Later it turned out that those scenes were just fillers didn t lead to much of anything notable For instances the scene with the forest fire Ok they helped the Demon King and he gifted them And For me each scene should be a lead up to something or a continuation of something not a filler The jumping POV was a bit irritating it felt like there was finally something interesting happening and then bam POV switch Most of the book dragged on to be honest all of the important events and plot twists could ve fitted in fewer pages The worst however by the end of the book reading the last sentence felt absolutely anti climatic It seemed like not much happened and there wasn t much of an actual story or romance for that matter Basically it seemed like a draft an introduction preuel sort of thing to the actual story Also there wasn t a solid enough storyline it seemed like the narrative kept jumping all over the place one moment there s Tarek and his issues another moment there s Jandu saving someone from an attack the next there s Keshan healing some sick woman and after comes a passage about Darvad s ambitions or whatever else It made me go get to the point way too oftenThe characters I can t say that a single character in this book appealed much to me Keshan married some woman just because she wrote some letter to him and though he doesn t like her at all he keeps her at his side for what while cheating on her left and right Nice AND she s portrayed as a sour faced bitch Is that supposed to make the reader feel like cheating is ok in that case Well nope NOT okay absolutely disgustingJandu seemed one dimensional and he also married some woman just because he wanted to show off and win the challenge But not only that he and two of his brothers also married her and each would have her for a year Passing her around like some object Disgusting 2 Tarek spineless fool who lucked out to move up to another caste but acts like a slave to his friend Darvad who also happens to be his love interest He drops everything to do his bidding steps over himself and really it s just pathetic Would be hard pressed to call him a man like a wormThen there are other characters like Jandu s older brother who gambled everything away like a fool and almost gambled away Jandu himself I would say I liked Iyestar but the way he acted in the end therenope Basically all these characters are very selfish despite what most of them say and claim to strive for they only care for their own agendas and that sort of dissonance between their actions and words was a bit irritating The romance well it was barely there The characters go from flirtation to love very fast and I don t like insta love It doesn t seem convincing The fact they are both married and are therefore cheating on their wives also ruins it a bit Yes the culture in the book is strict and homosexuality is punishable by death but I still don t think it makes infidelity okay Again the love if it was there I didn t see itThe world building seemed poor and mismatched to me some things were clearly copied from India and then there was the magic At times it seemed like Harry Potter at other times like some Bollywood film I didn t get the impression of something whole rather bits and pieces here and there and some of them seemed like random fillers Spent most of the book waiting for the plot to really take off but it never truly did Instead it finished with TBC Won t be reading the other books I m afraid

summary The Archer's Heart

Astrid Amara ☆ 0 read summary ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Astrid Amara summary The Archer's Heart In the ancient kingdom of Marhavad noblemen dominate the lower castes wielding mystic weapons known as shartas against any who oppose them For generations the rule of Marhavad’s kings has been absolute But now the line of succession is divided and whispers of revolution are heard in even the royal palaceKeshan Adaru an outspoken man of unearthly charms welcomes these changes All his life he has foreseen an uprising that will shatter the castes and end the tyranny of the old laws His visions have driven him but now at the brink of their fulfillment he finds himself obsessed with Prince. Take it from me who s read a ridiculous amount of mm novels it s super hard to find a good uality fantasy mm book Like I can probably count the number on one hand And Archer s Heart is exactly what I search for It has a solid world characters I adored and a storyline that took my breath awayThe story starts off and is based around the battle between Darvad Uru and Yudar Paran to be chosen to inherit the throne of Marhavad Marhavad is a country with a strict and oppressive caste system and Yudar is a strict traditionalist as opposed to Darvad who is open Our two main characters are on either sides of this feud Keshan Adaru who is definitely my favourite character is a charismatic visionary who is fervent in his belief of abolishing the caste system and sees Darvad as the man to bring this about Jandu Paran Yudar s brother is a brilliant archer but is shallow and arrogant yet he cannot ignore the powerful attraction between he and Keshan Their dangerous love affair is set against the backdrop of courtly intrigue magic and betrayal I m going to be completely honest and say that Jandu starts off as a complete brat He doesn t care about anything past his own archery and is both confused and ashamed of his attraction to Keshan But this is what makes his progress into an incredible character so brilliant His growth is slow and subtle provoked by events and not just influenced by Keshan s own ideals After finishing this it is absolutely mind blowing to go back and think about how all the main characters started out especially Jandu particularly since I started out not really liking any of them The world building in this novel is also phenomenal I could see the influences from India and that s made it stand out for me amongst fantasy books I can t think of another fantasy novel that I ve read which borrows from India rather than that dreaded Middle Ages cliche or even from the Middle East The whole world is incredibly solid rich with customs and traditions The magic in this novel comes in the form of shartas which are weapons that can only be used by the uppermost casteThis book is divided into three novels and I am writing this review after re reading the first one While the first book starts off fairly predictably the ending of it completely blindsided me All of my preconceived notions and cliches of how I thought this book would go down were thrown out the window From the second book on Amara s imagination absolutely exploded This is definitely up there with the best mm books I ve ever readReviewed for A Drop of Romeo
