It’s a complicated tale with three main protagonists, Miryem, the moneylender’s daughter, Wanda, who becomes her servant and is desperate to escape her drunken abusive father and Irena, the Duke’s eldest daughter by his first wife, whose bookish nature and plain looks have been a constant disappointment – until the Tsar comes to visit…
The story bounces between these three young women as their fates increasingly become intertwined. There is a fair amount of explanation – with pages when Novik is telling the story rather than having her characters speak, which I normally dislike. But I’m going to give her a pass on this one – firstly because it didn’t jar with me. This is, after all, a fairy story, which is always told from the outside in. Secondly, because though there is a fair amount of exposition, it was necessary in this complex plot and it didn’t stop Novik from immersing us in the thoughts and fears of her main protagonists. Thirdly, it was a delightfully long book with an unusually dense story, which I loved.
I’m aware this is a Marmite book – those aspects I’ve listed above as pluses have also exasperated some readers, preventing them from bonding with this book. Normally, I love a story to unfold from the inside out, but I simply think this time around it wouldn’t have worked so effectively. All I would say is – give it a go and discover for yourself if this one is for you. If you enjoy it, you’ll thank me. This is one that has had me continuing to ponder it since I’ve read it – always a sign that a book has properly got under my skin and it’s recommended for fantasy fans who like detailed worlds with plenty of unexpected twists.
On another level, this story is an engaging mediation on the nature of indebtedness, and gifts; of honour and honesty. Love wins in the end, but it is long in making its appearance. Until then the tale is ruled by cold justice and fair return, or hot injustice.
As always, Novik's writing is fluent, engaging, and often poetic. It conveys the flavour of it's setting in its very cadences. I highly recommend this!
Each character is beautifully fleshed out, with flaws and redeeming factors in equal measure. Nobody was too perfect, or too evil, and as such the world and its plot seemed absolutely plausible - despite being set in a world with magic and other goings on.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book for those who love an enthralling story, set in a world that both resembles and does not resemble our own, that is well written with just the right amount of mystery throughout.
Miryem, the Jewish Moneylenders daughter (who is actually far better at it than her father), has a reputation for turning silver in to gold, and this reaches the ears of the Staryk King, who demands that she change his silver in to gold. Which she does three times; the consequences of which aren’t quite what she expects.
Novik writes good female characters, without any doubt. Miryem, whotakes over her father’s moneylending business and saves her family; Irena, the daughter of a Duke, who marries the demon possessed Tsar; and Wanda, the daughter of a destitute, drunk farmer, who by luck comes to pay off her father’s debts by working for Miryem.
These women’s lives converge to create a bewitching story of real human concerns: poverty, helplessness, strength found when needed, and how important it is to pay your debts!
I do hope Novik writes more books like this. I’ll buy them all!!
I don't think I'm in the right headspace for this book.
I'm listening to the audio and the narrator does not change the tone of her voice for any of the main female characters, and because it head hops without telling you which character it's after jumping to it gets extremely confusing.
I don't like having to figure out which view point I'm supposed to be in. I wasn't able to get lost or enjoy anything that was happening.
Some of the scenes are extremely confusing. At one point two characters have a full conversation and I was sitting there thinking, 'what just happened?' the whole scene made my head hurt and after that my interest plummeted.
