The pathfinder Shea has chosen to make a place for herself among her former captors leaving behind her people and the life she once knew However not all welcome this outsider in their midst Shea will find that surviving alone in the wilderness is chil Don’t like Shea in this Feels like a persona much different than the one from the first book is being forced upon the reader Shea doesn’t want to be in a position of leadership over this group and that’s understandable given her personality and her loner type lifestyle but when it was mentioned that she had never liked leading groups out into the wilderness it kind of pissed me off because it was such a contradiction to the first Shea that I read about who loved the thrill of the unknown and the adventure and who got pretty testy when her orders weren’t followed Suddenly she just wants to catalogue knowledge for future generations and she’s become so dull In the beginning of this book she’s still yearning for that thrill yet when she takes a moment to talk to a friend about it it’s like she’s advised just to settle and let everyone else handle things because is being a pathfinder really what she sees herself doing for the rest of her life And she kind of accepts and agrees It just felt so stifling but rather than this feeling becoming an issue it’s like she’s just changing her desires the result of which is a dull character whom I barely recognize and one who I’m bored reading about She’s also portrayed as kind of silly and whiny her actions are regarded as cute yet annoying antics and at one point Fallon actually says “What are we going to do with you” Gag He’s still controlling in the sense that he knows what’s best for Shea and everyone else but he’s also a coward who slinks away in the wee hours of the morning after an argument between himself and Shea regarding her role with these people Not for a day or so but for six weeks while he’s off checking his outposts Had Shea gone with him that might have been some interesting reading but no instead we are treated with the oh so intriguing meeting regarding housing the new arrivals Horse pastures or the dropping of human waste on their heads as they sleep Riveting stuff And he’s just so placating towards her now I think I liked it better the way he was in the first book at least things felt real in that one In this at least at the beginning the problems don’t feel authentic and the times that Shea’s opinion is reuested it doesn’t feel like they really need it or want it but like they just want to make sure she feels included as a courtesy to her status as the ruler’s mate rather than actually needing her expertise Like they’re just humoring her for maintenance purposes because a happy girlfriend makes for a happy warlord I’m not sure it was meant to be this way but if her opinions were supposed to be important I just wasn’t soldThe mist finally shows up and describing it as simply underwhelming doesn’t even come close to conveying the disappointment I felt Mostly what you have is a thick white fog which obscures sight and causes disorientation and a weird time displacement Sometimes people disappear into it and there’s voices I have no idea what they say but Fallon and his men were lost in it for three weeks and Shea for one week while rescuing them Honestly Shea’s breakfast got a in depth description than the mist did I’m not kidding either said breakfast description takes place the following morningWhen they all get back Fallon and his men are no worse for the wear but exhausted little Shea girl nods off at the table and has to be carried off to bed by big strong Fallon But that’s ok because doesn’t it feel good to be cradled in those big arms and cherished like a fragile little dollyLots of time wasted with repetition too For example the village of Airibel was described at the start of the book and then again in almost exactly the same words when Shea gets ready to take Fallon on a tour But it’s not said to him it’s just described unnecessarily again at the start of the chapter I already know they live in the trees I already know the trees are huge I already know there’s a network of branches creating pathways It’s not even done in such a way as what they are experiencing as they arrive it’s just a repeated info dump All of these complaints are trivial though when compared to what happens next During a cheesy pool frolicking scene Shea broaches the subject of her desires to continue to scout and use her pathfinder skills Fallon shoots her down convinces her that not only does she not truly enjoy it but that she’s not good at it and that some of her reckless actions and insubordination would have gotten important men whipped But then later on in the book he and several of his men are laughing it up and telling fond stories of that same insubordination And what about when she saved his sorry ass in the beginning of book one It’s like everything I liked about Shea is being made light of It feels like she’s being brainwashed into agreeing to fit into this little box he’s made for her but without any real skill on his part Like when an adult uses reverse psychology on a child It was weirdly insulting in a way because those scouting missions and her escape artist ways are what enticed me to pick up book two Shea asks him if being a scout or not being a scout should be her decision and not his His reaction “I’m the warlord and if I say you won’t be a scout you won’t be a scout” And what happened to all the women warriors Shea isn’t a warrior she’s not even a good scout she’s a bed warmer whose wants and opinions can be silenced by a nipple tweak and a nip on the neck I found this insulting to women Even the scene with the tree top village story teller managed to be insulting because of the comments that Fallon had made and mostly the fact that it was meant to be cute Here’s a dandy little bit All those cheesy love scenes Turns out every last one of them took place with her assigned guards in close enough proximity to hear everything Oh man Shea’s spitting fire at this oneyes Leave him please leave him And not only for the fact that they could hear them having sex but also they got to hear him basically belittling her skills and crushing her scouting dreams On the way out of the trees there’s this ‘Fallon was respectful of the older man but not so much that it wasn’t clear who was in charge’ I really hate Fallon During this same scene it’s hinted that any children conceived in the waters of that pool would be favored by the gods or something along those lines Fallon looks ready to do cartwheels Shea looks like she might be ill Thank goodness for the herbal supplement she takes to prevent a pregnancy but I’m pretty sure a miracle baby will come out of that tryst conceived in front of the guards on the night that she was made to believe that her wants needs and skills were nonexistent This is uickly followed by a scene in which a bunch of idiotic and apparently sex starved women all converge on one of the guards and actually grope him while the men all have themselves a good chuckle Shea too finds this completely humorous and suddenly her anger seems to be gone and now I’m mad that she’s not still madAfter they get back to camp after pissing her off about something new there’s this ‘Fallon’s lips only twitched and he got a look on his face that said he thought her anger was adorable’This literally almost makes me sick Why isn’t Shea escaping How could she possibly be happy with this life At some point she finally gets her voice back and tells him she was this way when he met her it’s who she is and she’s not going to change etc I was briefly happy but overall it was too little too lateShea does get to scout again but literally has to wait until Fallon gives his permission which in my opinion just made her look stupid in front of another pathfinder It was a strangely embarrassing and uncomfortable scene to readThere was finally something happening during those scouting scenes but still not enough to make up the dull yet infuriating first half of the bookI could go on and on but I guess I’ll just sum it up by saying that overall I pretty much hated this book
