A Slice of uietude is a rich and satisfying tale that left me wanting It is first and foremost a love story but it is much than that It is a cleverly woven fantasy in a strange world where guilds reuire strict allegiance and good friends and lovers provide resolute protection against many angersThis book offers the reader the chance to know intimately the bond between two women who have chosen a life of violence and warfare in a mythical environment set sometime I would say in the Middle Ages if it were a Terran location While there is a jarring first chapter in which the reader must uickly interpret strange new words and terminology minutes are tichs and hours are chimes ensuing action scenes that are almost cinematic result in the humbling of one major character Kat and the emergence of the other three characters Tristian Cela and KinjaraThis is a tale where strong women warriors also show a much softer side resulting in a story that carefully and successfully walks the line between being an action tale and a romance Indeed the physical love scenes are so subtle they are almost non existent But the underlying emotional passages show a American Legal History deft handling of the main characters inner motivations andepthThe primary story revolves around Kat The Midnight Slicer whose chosen vocation is that of assassin She encounters Tristian a scarred and tortured literally woman who falls The Evolution of Technology deeply in love with Kat who gradually shows a reflective unconditional love for TristianI particularly enjoyed the verbal sparring and interplay between Tristian Kinjara and Cela who uickly put the much reticent Kat at ease in their circle In many ways their camaraderie reminds me of theialogue between Alexander Dumas Three Musketeers who often sparred good naturedly between action scenesThere are several good turns of phraseCuriosity and Midnight Slicers had an uneasy truceDarkness shrouded the other farmhouse Occasional owls burst forth from the Darsprian Forest nearby in search of retreating rodents in the field With the night chill settling in Kat once again tasted moisture in the airOutside Objective PET Students Book with

utilized well by the author toepict a telepathic realm that Kat and Tristian share to mutual advantageI give A Slice of uietude five stars and look forward to this author s next book The uietude a

author weaves a tale of mystery and illusion Throughout the novel theescriptive narrative allows the reader not only see what is happening but to almost smell the surroundings and the events taking placeNot written as an easy read the names I really wanted to like this book Lesbian assassin Sign me up Yeah sadly that aprt of the story wasn t enough for me Don t get me wrong the characters were well Raised in Captivity done I especially liked how Tristien had scars on like everypart of her body but wasn t the broody human hating woman like it is oftenone Kinjara on the other hand she has her uirks But reading a sentence said by her was just exhausting to me if you take a look at the Think (Ars Lamina) Level 2 Workbook description you can see what I mean She s like that all the timeThe writing itself just couldn t hold my interest And this story takes place in a whole new world which is great but there were so many unknown things so I felt a lot of the time rather confused Maybe a glossary would be helpful ONe with information about titles and peoples and everything I always like it if this information is explained in the story itself but there has to be some sort of explanationIt stood out to me how often a character s full name was used Usually it is used maybe once or twice introductions aside but in this book you have no chance of forgetting a character s full name So a lot of the time especially if used at the beginning of a chapter this made me feel like I started a new storyAnyway you really should check this book out yourself because like I said it was the writing that made me file it undernf and that s really personal tasteThe author provided me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review Thank you If you are unwilling to open your mind to a

blew my cynical hair back There were a few things that really stuck out to me 1 There is no such thing and no need for a LGBT community in the world of Sharon s creation Like one would expect there are people that are fine with it and those that aren t but bigots are generally treated how bigots should be2 The antagonist isn t a gay basher As so often is the case in pro human rights themes the baddie isn t some twoimensional piece of trash You understand the motivation and almost start to empathize with it until it invariably goes too farthen your left feeling a little thunderstruckThere is a love story here under the surface that.

main characters Tristien and Kat are falling head over heels in love but their pastemons get in the way of their ability to commit and fully open up to one another For Tristien the past The Mommy Makeover demons are physical for Kat they are mental I would love to go intoepth about their issues but it may spoil the read For me the story is foremost a love story and the battlesfights are secondary I have always enjoyed stories where humans were the most important thing and this novel The Convicts Bounty Bride (Convict Wives delivers on that Alongside Tristien and Kat are two friends Cela and Kinjara Their pasts are notelved into greatly but seeing as how they are secondary characters this is not necessary What they A River of Royal Blood (Untitled, do have are uniue characteristics that really help them leap off of the page and take on a life of their own While Iid enjoy this book there were some stylistic First Blood decisions that affected my read For one each character was referred to in a multitude of ways For instance Kat was referred to by nickname full name the olive womanark haired woman the Slicer the Midnight Slicer etc these names may not be exact I was pulled from the story every time one of these was used and this happened for every character Another issue that I had was the freuent use phrases at the beginning of a sentence This would happen to a majority of the sentences in a paragraph and it would create a rhythm in reading that would pull me from the story There were a few issues that brought this to three stars Aside from all of those things though this was an engaging novel with some beautifully written sentences I will The Palliser Novels definitely be reading the next book My son 22 picked this book up from my to be read pile on his way through my library er I mean the living room When he returned it he said You really should review this one before all those others I loved it It s really great He then launched into a near speech about the main character and her powers the various other primary characters the adventures they went on and how hilarious parts were He then asked for the next book in the series While this may not seem like a hugeeal at first once you understand that this is not someone who enjoys reading it really is a big Men And Gods In Mongolia deal 95% of books he picks up are uickly tossed to the side or returned to the pile with a groan about how awful it was Clearly this is a very well written book with engaging characters and an intriguing plot I skimmed the first chapters and actually found myself chuckling and almostidn t put it back Hunter Killer (Pike Logan down So while I can t say I read and reviewed it myself I can say that it earned very high marks from a very picky reader and that s enough for me to feel good about five stars I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review This in no way influenced my opinion or my son.

Boils up every now and then but it s cleverly used to break up scenes rather than act as the Flying Scotsman Manual driving force of the narrativeMy lone criticism surrounds editing and only because itid pull me out of the story a couple of times and that s around tense It s always tough to tell a story where we go from inner monologue to what happened in the past but there were a few times right at the height of action when it happened and it jarred me a bit It Alpha (Shifters, definitelyoesn t ruin anything just took me off guardFrankly I love stories that thumb their nose at convention First there s the LGBT thing and in most cases it s Whalerider done in a heavy handed and preachy way and uietude avoids this masterfully Second there s a believable female protagonist that has some sass without being a bitch Third the antagonist isn t a twoimensional baddie with silly motivesIf you have an open mind and frankly if you re into fantasy I on t see how you can t give this one a shot It s well worth the time Falling firmly within the fantasyaction adventure genre Sharon Cho s A Slice of uietude is a refreshing and modern take on the standard supernatural love story The novel itself takes place in an unusual and outlandish cosmos where the key tenets of classic literature allegiance to established authority true protection by loved ones and the intrinsic violence of a modern society Though the book s scenery and environment are reminiscent of the Middle Ages A Slice of uietude exists almost in its own timeless realm Cho s ecision to Graphic Design For Everyone depict two female heroes who actively choose a life of tumult and savagery acts as a welcomeeparture from today s similarly bestsellers that only represent the ever popular male point of viewReplete with uniue Considering Kate (The Stanislaskis, dialogue and terminology the author is careful to tread lightly on making the story strictly love centric or action centric There are many segments thatelve into the myriad of emotions that are consuming the books heroines With a steady momentum and clear talent at creating witty Sweetland dialogue andescriptive situations Sharon Cho s A Slice of uietude is a must read for those who especially adore a well written well paced and creative fantasy novel I almost Art of Laurel and Hardy didn t finish this book and I should have uit while I was ahead A Slice of uietude had the foundation of a good story but ultimately was a messWarning there are some spoilers belowThe story started out okay Kat is an assassin assigned to assist an amateur raiding party lead by a cowardly unscrupulous leader When this thrill seeking partyecides to attack an innocent family farm in the middle of nowhere Kat who is part of an assassin guild with a strict code must ecide between her loyalty to her assignment or to herself Who Kat meets on this family farm includes Tristien an intriguing woman scarred on every inch of her body When we meet her her presence is palpable She exudes a uiet strength that signals to Kat that she s not to be messed withNow add in this strange uietude layer some kind of spiritual realm Kat oesn t fully understand but can harness to assist in her assassinations and we have something interesting yeahSo where The Intelligent Entrepreneur does A Slice of uietude go wrongFirst off the book ends on a cliff hanger without wrapping up the first book This made me angry Literally the book ends mid sentence using an ellipses What No no no no no Cardinal rule you have to wrap up the main conflicts introduced in that book or you ll be chased with pitchforks Secondly this is an indie book that feels like one I m a big fan of indie as long as it s in a polished form ie good formatting minimal typos easy reading style etc This one isn t This could sometimes beue to awkward sentence structure to repeatedly saying cumbersome full names or terms to having to orient my head to what space I m in to being confused about a character s actionsSomewhere between the first and second act of the story Tristien got a lobotomy because she was not the same person between the two acts at all In the first act we re in Kat s head and the 2nd we re in Tristien s so of course we The Summer of the Ubume d get aifferent perspective but a person shouldn t be completely Distracted - Acting Edition differentAs the story unfolds Kat becomes wooden as a character instead of less and even at times is unlikable For example her assassin s guild recruits their members as children and rapes them to toughen them up She was one of those children and now as an adult she s okay with carrying on this tradition though she only rapes people her own age What The assassin s guild is ruthless towards its own members than towards its assignmentsand Tristien is at least as appalled as we are as readers but F me it s no cult I want to be part Kat never uestions her allegiance even as she s introduced to other ways of beingAnd at one point for some odd reason Katecides to uestion Tristien s past by saying that the gods Tristien supposedly met throughout her life were metaphors instead of real beings What Kat is supposed to be completely in Tristien s thrall she sees how vulnerable Tristien is Trauma heilen due to her trauma Kat herself constantly goes into a spiritual realm Tristien s friends act as witnesses to these gods and Tristien is in a physical state that only could have had supernatural intervention Why is she uestioning It s not as if she comes from a practical science based non spiritual viewpoint I think she even has a god of assassin s of her ownI just forget by now Add to the odd a strange foil is introduced in act 2 and he s NOT Tristien s arch nemesisso in the 3rd act I m expecting to finally meet the arch nemesis who inflicted Tristien s tra. Friends the battle hardened Cela and the almost famous bard Kinjara in their travels But will the Midnight Slicers allow Kat to shift allegiances And can a budding relationship with Kat get Tristien to move beyond her traumatic past “Hey This book ain’t about just that That part’s only got you two” interrupts Cela “It’s about fightin’rinkin’ and carousing’ You know slicin’” With one arm the tall warrior slashes her two handed sword through
