No trivia or quizzes yet. Conflicting impressi First impressions: Starting inLo has periodically published analysis of the diversity in Publishers Weekly and New York Times bestselling young adult uuntress.
But the Kingdom needs only one huntress to save it, and what it takes could tear Kaede and Taisin apart forever. My metaphorical hat is off to Malinda Lo for this bittersweet tale of love, heroism, sacrifice, and coming-of-age.
That’s a remarkably long-lived regime for an eco-system so fragile guntress it got nearly irreparably broken by one night of sex with a hot human male. Do I need to know what happens in Huntress in order to understand Ash? LGBT content and a fictionalized pseudo Asian world, what more could a girl ask for?

I love Kaede and Taisin and Shae. So it’s full of symbolism and amazing imagery and lovable characters. Given so much time upon the road, there was a lot of potential for characters to grow and interact and make us care. Two and a half stars, really, but I was just so disappointed with this book. I continue to be baffled at maalinda approach to plots. Lo was huntrews in China and moved to the United States at the age of three. Hardcoverpages. By the time they reach the city, there is not much space left to tell the rest Ok, so, thoughts.
There’s definitely enough here to make the story work, but a tad more information would have just filled in the edges a bit. They hope the Xi know why nature is out of joint. The first chapter is retrospective, so we see where things might end up, but not what has happened yet, and it is achingly beautiful.
This one is top notch. Their romance starts out hesitatingly: Worst of all, though, and what lost it an entire star, is the ending. I liked how there would be multiple points of view in one chapter, it was really easy to follow the characters.
Chapter Fifty-Five 3 hours ago more comments. Sounds as bad as Twilight. Which of the following best describes you?
It has a bit of a life of its own in these books. As members of their party succumb to unearthly attacks and fairy tricks, the two come to rely on each other and even begin to fall in love. The introduction of the quest is very short and we don’t get much of an explanation. Oh my goddddd the writing. But, as much as I wanted to give this book five stars, there are a couple of problems with me, the writing being the first of them. If I remember rightly, this story is mentioned in Ash.
I love Lo’s writing and while the pacing is slow at some points, especially when the characters journey through the Woods, I think that the pace is appropriate in that it helps the reader get a sense of their grueling journey. It seemed to be that they fell in love for no reason, except maybe that they were fated to fall in love?

This easily takes up two-thirds or more of the book. But it is Kaede who must cross to a tower of ice and face the evil that threatens Xi and human alike. I didn’t like it huntresw much as I liked Ash. Malinda Lo tries, but Taisin’s decision feels slightly unearned.
And that is the mark of an excellent storyteller, that she gives the ending a reader can accept as the RIGHT way to end the book.
Huntress is set in a lush fantasy yuntress and will be enjoyed by lovers of fantasy. There’s ideas raised earlier on that are forgotten about, and I found the romance utterly unbelievable – they go out of their way to avoid each other and not speak to each other, and yet About two thirds of the way through this book, I put it down, and it was so makinda from then to get to the end.
And, you know what, I love seeing the relationship of two young women treated as perfectly normal and right. Brit Mandelo is a multi-fandom geek with a special love for comics and queer literature.
The answer was, by not finishing with as rich a story as the rest of the book. I don’t think there’s enough character development at all. Maybe Taisin fell in love because she’d had a vision about it?
Lo gives us deliberately paced novel, with beautiful description, heart-pounding adventure, and a sweet romance. This book is written much in the style of Ash; so if you liked that book I think you will enjoy this one.
