A copy was provided by the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewI do not recommend this book to trans, non binary, and or disabled readers I was really excited for this book Genderfluid character in a historical queer romance by one of my favorite authorsI was anticipating this book for months Unfortunately, the genderfluid representation which was what I was so excited for didn t work for me And I was also troubled by the d
This is my favorite book in the series, but cannot be read alone The mystery thread comes to its end here In Pen, we meet one of the most engaging genderqueer characters in M M From a constrained, rigidly religious childhood, Pen and his sister Greta ran away to become trapeze artists The combination of art and costume made this the perfect place for Pen to live the fluidity of his gender identity He uses male pronouns throughout, although inmodern times might choose differently De This is my favorite book in the series, but cannot be read alone The mystery thread comes to its end here In Pen, we meet one of the most engaging genderqueer characters in M M From a constrained, rigidly religious childhood, Pen and his sister Greta ran away to become trapeze artists The combination of art and costume made this the perfect place for Pen to live the fluidity of his gender identity He uses male pronouns throughout, although inmodern times might choose differently Despite poverty, their lives work for them, although they are one slip and fall away from disaster with no cushion to fall back on But for Pen, it s hard to imagine a place where he would be safer orcomfortable in who he is I really appreciated the detailed but not belabored way in which we see the shifts in Pen s self perceptions Small details help us appreciate the way he moves through the changes in his day to day life.Then investigative agent Mark befriends Pen, before dropping a bomb on him Pen is heir to a title and e

I did the happiest of happy dances when I got approved for this title Book two remains, hands down, my favourite but AN UNSUITABLE HEIR has a very satisfying end for the series, which I think all readers can appreciate as it doesn t always pan out that way, and features an absolutely exquisite portrayal of a gender queer individual One doesn t have anything to do with the other but having both rolled into one was just the best A lot of people think it s odd. Well, a lot of people are arseholes I m no stranger to Charles and I m no stranger to loving her books Sins of the Cities was a fabulous series in the sense that we re given one
3 STARS A great ending to an enjoyable series I would have enjoyed itif Mark and Pen s relationship wasof the focus instead of the mystery I m not saying the mystery wasn t interesting, it was It was well written and plotted out I enjoyed it until the end But for me it really dragged in some places and it made the book feel longer than what it is The mystery was well done and I was completely in the dark on whodunit until the very end The first two books were a great lead up 3 STARS A great ending to an enjoyable series I would have enjoyed itif Mark and Pen s
The awaited end to this trilogy is finally out A satisfactory ending to the story arc and all the characters involved except for the dead ones of course Trilogies are tricky because like Olympians they need to peak at the right moment Fortunately for books this is subjective to the reader, what does not work for me will work very well for another reader For me the first book remained the strongest I was hooked in during the first and then got unhooked during the second and third Maybe it The awaited end to this trilogy is finally out A satisfactory ending to the story arc and all the characters involved except for the dead ones of course Trilogies are tricky because like Olympians they need to peak at the right moment Fortunately for books this is subje
