    The Golden City PDF ✓ The Golden eBook æ golden ebok, city ebok, The Golden mobile, The Golden City ePUBThis book is tagged with the fantasy genre but while there are elements of magic and mythological creatures within it this barely ualifies as a fantasy book It is set in an alternate version of Portugal and while well described enough the setting is just there there is nothing a

    The Golden City PDF ✓ The Golden eBook æ golden ebok, city ebok, The Golden mobile, The Golden City ePUBI was so excited about this book An alternate version of 1902 Portugal Mermaids Selkies a bit confusing that Portugal isn't exactly known for its seal population but it's fantasy Spies RomanceIt was shaping up to be one of those books I devour in less than a dayBut

    The Golden City PDF ✓ The Golden eBook æ golden ebok, city ebok, The Golden mobile, The Golden City ePUB4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum Author guest post and USCANADA GIVEAWAY Ends July 14 2014 Golden City is a book that may take a bit of patience to get into but it ends up being well worth the time once the story gets going It also stands out for being one of the uniue novels I’ve read this year with its one of a kind setting in an alternate Portugal around the turn of the 20th century and its rousing combination of subjects like dark magic and sea folkThe book begins with an introduction to Oriana Paredes a spy for her people called the sereia As a member of a race of sea folk banned from the city by the ruling king Oriana has been posing as a maid working undercover in a wealthy aristocratic household for two years but has befriended the

    The Golden City PDF ✓ The Golden eBook æ golden ebok, city ebok, The Golden mobile, The Golden City ePUBETA a link to this review which points out the numerous instances of getting the Portugal setting wrongThere wasn't a lot that I could pinpoint as wrong with this but there wasn't anything at all that really grabbed me either I didn't much care for the characters didn't feel the setting an alternate Portugal in the very early 1900s lived up to the potential it offered for uniue and interesting and the supernatural beings were just kind of there when they should have been amazing Often they were a bit dull even as for example Duilio and his gift which he kept consulting to the point that it seemed rather like telling the reader that he was consulting the bustrain schedule online every time he took a bustrain to DO somet

    The Golden City PDF ✓ The Golden eBook æ golden ebok, city ebok, The Golden mobile, The Golden City ePUBWriting It is ok nothing to say either good or bad about this one It is entertainingCharacters Cliché and one dimensional It would be wise to give them consistency and development on the next volumePlot Basic and short There are way too many pages in this book for the plot it has Perhaps a novelette would do just fine Worldbuilding This was the factor which brought my attention to this book Fantasy Portugal and sirens I’m in Unfortunately it is a disappointment The Portugal part lacks so much research that it becomes irrelevant if it is based influenced by Portuguese society history or if it is an entirely ‘other world’ And the fantasy bit isn’t so great too since it doesn’t develop its own ideasIn a general way I think there is potential in here but it is still far away from reaching that potential

    The Golden City PDF ✓ The Golden eBook æ golden ebok, city ebok, The Golden mobile, The Golden City ePUBLoved it I've liked J Kathleen Cheney's fiction online so I'm really happy she has a novel And with a splendoriffic cover This book actually distracted me from a five and a half book Seanan McGuire spree I couldn't go back to book six until I'd finished this one so it's definitely got some good pacing and attention snaring powers Heck it even beat out the new Richard Kadrey novel which considering the pacing and craziness in the Sandman Slim series is a pretty decent achievment Oriana and Duilio are some of the most appe

    The Golden City PDF ✓ The Golden eBook æ golden ebok, city ebok, The Golden mobile, The Golden City ePUBI received a copy of this book from the author My review states my unbiased reaction The Golden City is the sort of book that would make me go OOOH WANT It hits on several of my sweet spots historical fiction a uniue setting 1902 Portugal magic and selkies The latter is huge for me I love selkies and am delighted when I find shorts stories and novels that utilize them well For those who aren't familiar with selkies they are fairy creatures of sea who can slip off their pelt to take on human formThis novel alternates between two perspectives Oriana Paredes a sereia who has been sent from her sea people to spy on the Golden City; and Duilio Ferreira a police consultant with his own genetic roots in the sea Both feel like real complicated people I'm normally drawn to heroines the most but there's something especially appealing about Duilio He's intelligent and kind and this even comes across in a scene that could have easily turned me off of the book entirely

    The Golden City PDF ✓ The Golden eBook æ golden ebok, city ebok, The Golden mobile, The Golden City ePUBThis is one of those books that had phenomenal potential which was totally unrealizedThe set up is intriguing putting us in 1902 in Portugal which is not a set up we see often It's history with fantastical elements including seer

    The Golden City PDF ✓ The Golden eBook æ golden ebok, city ebok, The Golden mobile, The Golden City ePUBMaybe I was just in the perfect mood for lighter historicalurban fantasy because I enjoyed this uite a bit I get how it could be slow for some people but I was in the mood to meander a bit I love Portuguese history but I'm not from Portugal nor by any means am I an expert so I was able to enjoy without being nit picky Just a good fun read with some unresolved sexual tension not going to lie that's what made me order the second book right after finishing this one Love that it's partially based on The Lusiads
