review Sword and Verse Kathy MacMillan ´ 4 Download Sword and Verse Read & Download  4 En el reino de ilara la escritura es un don reservado a los nobles y prohibido para todos los demás especialmente para los esclavos Únicamente a la tutora del príncipe y su aprendiza les está permitido aprender la lengua. Review posted on The Eater of Books blogSword and Verse by Kathy MacMillanPublisher Harper Teen Publication Date January 19 2016Rating 5 starsSource eARC from EdelweissSummary from GoodreadsRaisa was just a child when she was sold to work as a slave in the kingdom of ilara Despite her young age her father was teaching her to read and write grooming her to take his place as a Learned One In ilara the Arnathim like Raisa are the lowest class and literacy is a capital offense What s only the king prince tutor and tutor in training are allowed to learn the very highest order language the language of the gods So when the tutor in training is executed for teaching slaves this sacred language and Raisa is selected to replace her Raisa knows any slipup on her part could mean deathKeeping her secret is hard enough but the romance that s been growing between her and Prince Mati isn t helping matters Then Raisa is approached by the Resistance an underground army of slave rebels to help liberate Arnath slaves She wants to free her people but that would mean aiding a war against Mati As Raisa struggles with what to do she discovers a secret that the ilarites have been hiding for centuries one that if uncovered could bring the kingdom to its kneesWhat I LikedSword and Verse was one of those books that I knew I would enjoy upon reading only the synopsis I remember seeing the title and then the synopsis and then the cover I remember discovering that the author was a fellow Baltian which is REALLY exciting Of all of Harper s 2016 Winter and Spring debuts Sword and Verse was the one I wanted to read the most You probably already saw my top five reasons why I think you should read this book but this will be a in depth and coherent log of my thoughts on the book which was superbNote I will not do this book justice with this review I couldn t do it with my Top Five Reasons post which you should check out it s slightly condensed and I know I can t do it here There are some books that are that great that I just want to say TRUST ME AND READ IT and be done with the review Still I hope I can write a nice review and not spoil thingsAs a child Raisa was chosen to be the next tutor and so she began to learn to read and write alongside the crown prince of ilara Mati Years later Raisa s feelings for Mati have grown and she has also become a very accomplished Tutor mastering the language and symbols with ease Raisa and Mati know they shouldn t feel anything towards each other but they do When war breaks out against ilara Raisa will help the Resistance or stay loyal to ilara there is no easy way out of her past present or futureThis book is written from Raisa s POV and it starts in the past when Raisa is small She wasn t always a distinguished tutor in training she used to be a slave in the kingdom As an Arnath child she never felt welcome in ilara anyway Raisa is a different heroine from what we typically see in YA fantasy these days She isn t bent on saving the world or wielding swords or defying royalty She s loyal to Mati and she doesn t forget her people but she doesn t want to necessarily help the Resistance when it could mean hurting Mati indirectly Raisa is a mentally and emotionally strong young woman which is just as important as being physically tough She is intelligent and kind and has to work through an incredible amount of emotional burden throughout the bookMati is the male protagonist of the book and a very important character in the story He has to lead ilara for various reasons and the learning curve is steep He never wanted to be a part of the conflict and war that ilara is deeply entrenched in but he takes steps to ensure ilara s success Mati is selfless and clever which is one of the reasons why I think him and Raisa are a great pairSo much of this book revolves around language and writing and symbols The Resistance is desperate to have Raisa helping them because she can read and write and she is in the palace Raisa s role as Tutor will be to teach Mati s children how to read and write as well as train the next Tutor So you see that Raisa and Mati s roles were clearly defined from that start but it didn t stop either of them from falling for each from the start We know that Raisa has feelings for Mati since she was little and we find out that he has feelings for her too The romance is a strange one no love triangle but it isn t like any romance I ve read There was a point in the book that broke my heart and it was less than halfway through This book takes place over a year maybe a little over a year not including the prologue A LOT happens during that time in terms of the romance and in terms of the entire story This book is a fantasy novel through and through so there are certain elements of the story that intersect with the romance that really only occur in fantasy novels you ll have to read the book to know what I mean but the romance in this book is very unconventional And I say all of that and mean it in a GOOD way I absolutely love how MacMillan constructed the romance how it developed The romance wraps up in a satisfying way and there is no love triangle NO LOVE TRIANGLE None The romance is one of my favorite aspects of this book So Good Lots of swoon and fangirling from me I will assure youMacMillan also does a great job with the world building Sometimes high fantasy novels seem to blur together in terms of the worlds I didn t find it the case with this book the emphasis on language and symbols made this book highly distinctive as well as the structure of the court and kingdom and the role of religion The ending is stunning in my opinion The book takes it time for the most part in terms of pacing but the climax picks up speed and the ending is eye opening I love the pacing of the book overall and I really liked how the ending felt Everything comes together and the ending wraps up all the loose threads I was really happy with the ending especially in the last few pages This book is a standalone and the ending is perfect for it It s not as tightly wrapped as I would have hoped there are one or two things that I thought were open ended but I have it on good authority that things will be addressed in the future but not as a series So Standalone for the winWhat I Did Not LikeThis book was really satisfying for me so I don t think I have complaints One of the things that I mentioned above was that I found that there were a few things that were open ended Usually this would be a complaint of mine if the book is a standalone which this one is but if those elements will be addressed in future companion novels then by all meansWould I Recommend ItI highly recommend this novel Fantasy fan YA fan someone who enjoyed Kristin Cashore s books or Alexandra Bracken s Brightly Woven etc It s a standalone with an incredible and totally uniue romance and high stakes action and unforgettable world building This stunning debut did not disappoint on any levelRating5 stars That s a rare rating from me I like it when I build a novel up in my head for forever and then the novel turns out to be really really wonderful If you get a chance to read this book do it Don t miss this bookHeh This one did not disappoint We can totally compare it to Fire by Kristin Cashore which happens to be my favorite book of all time Sword and Verse was BEAUTIFULSee five great reasons why you should read Sword and VerseAnd here s a swoony excerpt if you needed further convincing DSUPER EXCITED GUYSJust confirmed that I will be presenting at KidLitCon with AlyssaSusanna in October Can t wait Kathy MacMillan kathysuill August 9 2015
