  3. Rating 3 of fiveWraeththu as a concept strikes me now as not terribly gay At the time I read this, maybe I thought it was on a par with Ethan of Athos as social commentary, but now it feels forced and slightly silly to me.And my question after reading this boo...

  4. Storm Constantine is a name only a writer can pull off Well, that might not be true, my dentist was named Storm Briggs but I always thought it made him seem like a super hero In any case, I feel a little weird reviewing this book as I haven t read anything else in the Wraeththu series of books and might be a bit judgmental of some of the themes because I didn t see how they evolved over the course of the stories but never the less I read this book and I m writing a review based on the po Storm Constantine is a name only a writer can pull off Well, that might not be true, my dentist was named Storm Briggs but I always thought it made him seem like a super hero In any case, I feel a little weird reviewing this book as I haven t read anything else in the Wraeththu ser...

  5. Mind blown why did I wait so long to read this second book Prior to using GR, I didn t stay on top of authors as well I ended up reading this a year after it came out This world building is just fantastic Ms Constantine writes at a level I need every so often to stimulate my mind.

  6. This book delves deeper into what Wraeththu can do with their sex magic It s interesting, but isn t explored with the kind of detail it deserves.The characters continue to have mostly the same voice all the time, but at least that voice is mostly fitting Unlike with the previous book The Wraiths Of Will And Pleasure , I found myself unable to identify withof the characters and failed to understand their deeper motives, even th...

  7. I like that it is acknowledged that the characters have changed over time, and that much of the relationships that were so important a couple of books ago can no longer be the same as they were And I love that it is not ignored by the characters Things were at last confronted that I ve been waiting to witness since the end of the first trilogy But I think a part of me still wants the old connections and goals from the first trilogy, and maybe that s why I don t want to give it as high a ratin I like that it is acknowledged that the characters have changed over time, and that much of the relationships that were so important a couple of books ago can no longer be the same as they were And I love that it is not ignored by the characters Things were at last confronted that I ve been waiting to witness since the end of the first trilogy But I think a part of me still wants the old connections and goals from the first trilogy, and maybe that s why I don t want to give it as high a rating.But it s not that I wasn t as emotionally invested Or that I wasn t surprised by new revelations, or afraid for the characters in peril The book is still of the same caliber as the others, with the promise of even greater revelations to come Maybe I m w...

  8. Wow This second in the series really getsinto the energetic origins and capabilities of the Wraeththu,than dwelling in the stories of the characters themselves Again, Constantine brings to the fore the backstory of yet other past characters and there issynergy between them than dissent, as before most of the characters are facing deep personal crises This book was tough to read, though She really departed from a lot of what had become clich d writing for her though I love Wow This...

  9. I have such mixed feelings about this book Reading it was a roller coaster of wishing it was over already and wishing it would never end It was like a deus ex machina fest in thatandpowerful creatures, many of which we ve never heard of, kept appearing out of nowhere to give the heros and villainsandincredible powers, and it really just got silly after a while You never knew who was going to pop up with some fantastical new magic weapon ally that gave them the upper ha I have such mixed feelings about this book Reading it was a roller coaster of wishing it was over already and wishing it would never end It was like a deus ex machina fest in thatandpowerful creatures, many of which we ve never heard of, kept appearing out of nowhere to give the heros and villainsandincredible powers, and it really just got silly after a while You never knew who was going to pop up with ...

  10. Pleasantly surprised The original Wraeththu books were so appealing to me that when Constantine started a new set with the Wraiths of Will and Pleasure, I read it eagerly only to be disappointed by the disjointed nature of it However The Shades of Time and Memory, while not nearly as compelling as the original books, was much better than Wraiths The feel of things is much different, with Wraeththu becoming aware that the universe is larger than they knew and that there history is far differen Pleasantly surprised The original Wraeththu books were so appealing to me that when Constantine started a new set with the Wraiths of Will and Pleasure, I read it eagerly only to be disappointed by the disjointed nature of it However The Shades of Time and Memory, while not nearly as compelling as the original books, was much better than Wraiths The feel of things is much different, with Wraeth...
