  3. i still am not over the fact that someone wrote a game of thrones style king lear i feel as if i m not going to be the same person until this is in my hands



  4. 3 1 2 starsI enjoyed this book, but I didn t love it It was well written, and the author did a great job of adding depth to the story of King Lear, while staying fairly true to the overall story It is not an exact retelling new connections are created between characters, and some of the story lines and plot elements have been adjusted, but the author does a good job of expanding on the original play, while staying true to themes I was charmed to see some exact dialogue from the play sprinkled th [...]




  5. Having been severely disappointed with Nesbo s eagerly awaited Macbeth a few days ago, I approached this fantasy retelling of King Lear with some trepidation but, you know what, it s wonderful Gratton shows her deep understanding of the original in so many ways even while she contests and subverts it Rather than this being a Lear via Game of Thrones, it serves to reveal how much GoT is already indebted to Lear and others The writing is gorgeous lyrical and poetic in its evocation of a world orde [...]


  6. OK I m not joking, I need to know if I read the whole thing Can someone else who s read it or has it tell me the last line Honestly, if I have read all of it then the ending is the kind of open ending leading into the next book that I really enjoy and am not at all mad about, but it did seem a little too open anti climatic for an ending Nevertheless, I would definitely buy the follow up.On to review the actual bulk of the book I haven t read King Lear since my A Levels about 10 years ago, so I c [...]



  7. update 1 30 18 okay I m trying so hard not drop all of my other responsibilities just to read this but it s becoming difficult minute by minute smh 1 28 18 Y ALL IM SCREAMING I JUST GOT APPROVED FOR THIS AND 2018 IS COMING UP ROSES I M SO EXCITED FOR THIS


  8. It begins when a wizard cleaves an island from the mainland, because the king destroys her temple It begins far away from the furious land, in a place so different in name and air that the one could not recognize the other as being born both from the same earth It begins on the day two bright hearts are born to the island, one just past dawn as a crescent moon rises, and the other when the sun is brightest, obscuring the glow of stars It begins when a queen sits in a pool of stars It begins with [...]



  9. My favorite Shakespeare inspired work maybe EVER It s exquisite and breathtaking in every way The writing is poetic and lyrical, the use of magic is astounding, and THE SISTERS AND BANI love them all so much and the Gaela Regan Elia relationship and then their relationships with Ban UGH I could go on forever.



  10. To be honest, this book is plain meh for me From the description of the novel, which heralded The Queens of Innis Lear as the next Game of Thrones, I was expecting a mature fantasy novel with complex political problems and fascinating lore Instead, I felt like I was reading a young adult fantasy novel that stuck to all the popular tropes of the genre love triangles, helpless main female character who needs everyone to do everything for her, evil sisters, star crossed lovers, princess in exile, e [...]



  11. I received this via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review It was a long preview excerpt very long actually, I didn t even realize it was an excerpt at first I don t think this adult fantasy is a standalone novel, although I couldn t find any information on how many books are planned It s a retelling of King Lear, although I never read the original material so I can t comment on that.The story is told from several different point of views We have a big focus on the three sisters Elia, the y [...]


  12. I hold Gratton to a near impossibly high standard so I fell into Innis Lear hopeful but unsure, excited but worried that my expectations were setting me up for disappointment I should not have worried this is Gratton, after all While this is as devastating and intense as the play upon which it is based, there are some differences that make it tragic and then again, a very tiny bit hopeful and I mean tiny The last few pages left me in tears, as one might expect, but I didn t realize how much I [...]


  13. OMG that cover It isBEAUTIFUL the blurb though Not sure if I want to read it now Feminist multicultural It s got a SJW smelly smell and I don t like it.Please be good


  14. PLEASE NOTE I only read a sampler of this book precisely 193 pages so my opinions review is based on that alone.From the pages I got to read, this book was an absolute treat Think Three Dark Crowns meets Caraval meets Game of Thrones The characters are riveting, twisty, compelling, damaged, and ruthless It s a big cast, but everyone is vivid and layered The plot is achingly romantic and heartbreaking It s a bit confusing, but otherwise extraordinary Unique, as well, and running with the characte [...]


  15. 3.5 stars I did enjoy this book, and I loved Gaela especially She s everything I wanted to be when I grew up, when I was a teenager However, I feel like she was the only character we really got to know throughout this story Elia, despite being the sister around whom the plot mostly revolved, has very little screen time and even less personality Regan is barely in it and has one hell of a one track mind I also felt like the story presented very little action or conflict, and a lot of it was told [...]


  16. I received this via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I liked this book, the world is dark and beautiful, the magic is fantastic and the characters are well fleshed out, but, it s slow It s a long book at over 570 pages.The Queens of Innis Lear is an intricate fantasy that takes the Shakespearean play, King Lear, and expands upon it crafting together an intense tale of magic, power, and those willing to shed blood and bonds for a crown that could control everything Recommended for those [...]


  17. 5 AMAZING BREATHTAKING STARS Amazing writing Brilliantly creative setting that you can easily imagine yourself in while reading A great, diverse set of characters Brilliant plot full of twists and turnsJust absolutely breathtakingly brilliant, I was so surprisedFull review to come when I can put my thoughts into wordsThankyou so much NetGalley for the chance to read this




  18. DNF Will provide reason for this in a mini review to come No real review since I didn t actually complete this Edit Unfortunately, as excited as I was about the premise of this book, I decided not to finish it I don t make these decisions lightly, and have my reasons for not completing The Queens of Innis Lear.The book was very nicely written The voice was pleasant however, it was a bit too flowery for my tastes Much of the book consisted of descriptions rather than getting to the heart of the s [...]


  19. The beginning of the school year is always a rough transition time as I try to work out a schedule that allocates time to everyyything that I want to do but also leaves me adequate breaks to recover One of the many things that I struggle to find time for is casual reading, but it s also the most relaxing aspect of my life, so I d like to find time for it this semester This was exactly the kind of engrossing YA read that I ve been craving recently.Within pages I was struck by the raw, mysterious [...]
