Ebook ð The Five Daughters of the Moon ê Leena Likitalo

Inspired by the 1917 Russian revolution and the last months of the Romanov sisters The Five Daughters of the Moon by Leena Likitalo is a beautifully crafted historical fantasy with elements of technology fueled by evil magicThe Crescent Empire teeters on the edge of a revolution and the Five Daughters of the Moon are the ones to determine its futureAlina six fears Gagargi Prataslav and his Great Thinking Machine The First off if you’re like me and don’t pay enough attention you might miss that this book is the first of a duology It very much just comes to a stop and will reuire the second volume to become a full story You might want to hold off until you have your hands on both of them to start reading because they’re the same storyAnyway The Five Daughters of the Moon is a historical fantasy based on the story of the Russian revolution If you know the story of the Romanov sisters you know there’s not likely to be a happy ending coming — and you know which characters to be suspicious of Each chapter is told from the point of one of the five girls from the youngest to the oldest Likitalo actually does a pretty good job of distinguishing each of the voices — you wouldn’t think Sibilia was Celestia or Alina when reading for a certainty — but Alina’s narration at six years old sounds rather too mature for her ageSetting that aside it’s beautifully written and the worldbuilding that emerges slowly is lovely The idea of the Empress being married to the moon the arrangement whereby each of the girls has a different earthly father or “seed” but is considered a daughter of the Moon the soul beads — it isn’t all immediately apparent how it works but as you need to know you learn I think that’s well doneOverall a fascinating novella retelling to my mind but I do wish the two books had come out together or that it was just sold as a novelReviewed for The Bibliophibian

The Five Daughters of the MoonGh the countryside Or the rumors about the gagargi and his machineElise sixteen follows the captain of her heart to orphanages and workhouses But soon she realizes that the unhappiness amongst her people runs much deeper that anyone could have ever predictedAnd Celestia twenty two who will be the empress one day Lately she's been drawn to the gagargi But which one of them was the first to mention the idea of a coup? I had so high hopes for this book In parts I really enjoyed this book I think it had a pretty strong start and pretty interesting ending however between around the halfway point until the last couple of chapters I was a little bit bored I probably will read the last book in the duology to figure out how it all ends up but this did not exactly meet my expectations fully
