A Journey of the Heart
A Journey of the Heart Book II] shows the same strong storytelling ability of the first book. The language is still almost musical and wraps its sweet spell around you. Storylines that were just starting to grow in the first book are also very well developed here. Intrigue and conflict are fleshed out and take some surprising twists. All that I had hoped for, reading the f...more
I can not wait to read the final book, and would not hesitate to recommended this series to all.
"She had held out to me the hope that, by letting something go, I might be able to take hold of something better."
"My heart knew how much others cared for me, but my body needed to be told, in a language ...more
I really, really enjoyed the first one, because of the sense of warmth and growth that infused it throughout, even as it was low on plot. This one, however, swept me away even more. The scope continues to remain limited; we're not talking about great clashes between two empires or anything, but with the way this book is written, we don't need to be. Even if the scope is small, the stakes still fe ...more
As the second book of a trilogy this book did what many 2nd of 3rd books do and leaves much unknown: forcing the reader to speculate and wonder and, of course, bu ...more
Also, I am not prejudiced or judgmental, I have and will always have many friends of all shapes, sizes and various sexual orientations. But this book is page after page of women "loving" each other and not well-written at that. I won't bother to read the third volume.
Got more of a background on Maara in this book, love her character!
The rhythm that Catherine Wilson chooses continued to remind me of an oral storyteller. Once again, the beautiful poetic phrases kept me reading and held my attention throughout.
As events at Merin’s House and on the northern frontier unfold, Tamras faces crucial decisions a ...more
So many things happened in this book that is hard to write a review good enough for the story. I'm out of words for how beautiful, fascinating and refreshing this book is. What can I say to make everyone read this series? I just want people to experience the kind of happiness ...more
This was just as good as the first book, and is a direct continuation, like the second part to one large book. Tamras grows older in this ...more
My review for The Warrior’s Path (Book 1)
My review for A Hero's Tale (Book 3)
“If anything is a gift to you, she is.”
This book is definitely my favourite one of the trilogy and it made my queer heart so fucking soft and happy.
Tamras and Maara’s relationship in this book made my heart skip and drop all of my uwus. They’ve learnt to trust each other by now and you can see how much they care for one another, it was delightful. If you don’t kill someone for the love of your life, is ...more
It might be possible to enjoy this book without reading its predecessor, but som ...more
Book two doesn't disappoint, it charms and enthralls. Keeping the reader wanting more, desiring to turn the page, to find out more.
This is the most excuisite series of books I've read, the writing style of Catherine M Wilson is so suited to this genre of literature. The journey the main characters are on is both a physical and emotional one, and I am finding it a most satisfying journey to read.
A brilliant book, written with passion and care, I highly recommend this.
