Ter the village girl Heloise opposes the Order and risks bringing their wrath down on herself her family and her village This Review ✍️ Blog 📖 Twitter 🐦 Instagram 📷 “That love is worth it It is worth any hardship it is worth illness It is worth injury It is worth isolation It is even worth death For life without love is only a shadow of life” The main reasons that made me read this one are It has a great cover The author is cool and funny on twitter and I love Tor’s novellas But as soon as I started it I liked it for totally different thingsI thought that the book would be plot driven the book has a weird and very intriguing synopsis there is a kind of a religious group called the order and these people opposes any act of magic because wizards have the ability to open portals and summon devils from their eyes? It is not like anything I have ever read before “Hell is a word men use in place of fear” The reality is that this took me by surprise as it was a character driven story with a number of fleshed out characters and a teenager as a protagonist who is still trying to figure things LIFE out Heloise was a ruthless character and I have seen her getting eual amounts of love and hate I think this explains the relatively lower review of this entry in the series I think the angst and confusion Heloise had was very befitting for a character her age and we all mistakes so that makes her realistic for me I don’t like too perfect charactersThat being said the plot was not bad at all It needed some time to build the main event toward the end which I knew was going to happen but still enjoyed The book deals with extreme religious figures and oppression and the victims of such things There was some action and the modern mix between the medieval setting and the armor worked well for some reason All in all I enjoyed the plot too “No matter what happened try and take joy in the day girl We have precious few of them” Summary With a good writing and fleshed out characters The Ard Saint is a short story that delivers a lot than its size I always believed fantasy books can be shorter and this proves that a full story can be delivered within a small number of pages You can get books from Book Depository

The Ard SaintIn a world where any act of magic could open a portal to hell the Order insures that no wizard will live to summon devil ARC provided by Tor in exchange for an honest review “Love is worth it It is worth any hardship it is worth illness It is worth injury It is worth isolation It is even worth death For life without love is only a shadow of life” Well I think it’s safe for me to yell from the rooftops pre order The Ard Saint now guys What an amazing ride even though I wasn’t ready for it to be over This is easily one of the best things I’ve read in 2017 and this is truly epic fantasy at its finest I’m so damn impressed The Ard Saint centers on a village of people who live subservient lives to the Order The Order is a group of religious tyrants that do horrible things to the wizards in this world or to the people that are protecting andor harboring the wizards in this world The Order follows the word of the Writ which has lead them to believe that wizards have a portal in their eye that can open the very gates of hell itself and summon devils Our main protagonist Heloise is a sixteen year old girl who isn’t sure if she even believes the Order but she knows that they are heartless terrible people after her and her father have a run in with them at the very start of this story The Order appears to just be cruel for the sake of being cruel but many of the villagers in Heloise’s community believe in the words that Order preaches including her very own father “Because the Writ tells us girl Because the Order reminds us The devils are real and they are terrible and we must be ever vigilant for their return” Heloise and her village are put in a situation where they have to make a sacrifice after they’ve already been forced to make so many or to risk everything to protect their community The story really takes off from there and we also get to see a mysterious ranger an inactive war machine and even a magical mouse But this is also a story about discovering and embracing your sexuality Heloise is constantly uestioning her feelings for her best friend and it made me cry so many happy yet sad tears This is a beautiful tale about a girl coming to terms with her ueerness in a world that thinks it is unnatural and it is so very important This story truly means to me than I can express in words Heloise is easily one of my favorite female protagonists of all time and I will continue to say what I say in every ueer SFF review I write we need stories like this This story is so utterly heart wrenching but it’s so important “That’s what love should be sure as stone as running water Sure as the bite of winter and spring blossoms Sure even when it was impossible Even when they were both girls” And love is such a driving force in this very character focused story The love between families The love between friends And the love between two young girls who are just trying to learn who they are “No It is a person you love Not a name Not a she or a he A person in all their shining glory There is a thing in us Heloise A seed It makes us who we are It is our core That is the thing we love It alone exists It alone is holy It has no home no name It is neither male nor female It is greater than that” Now excuse me while I go cry for the rest of this night because I’m not sure if I’ve read anything as beautiful as that uote This book has such a lyrical prose The writing is so fantastic and adds even to an already perfect story And Myke Cole does this in only 200 pages This is the first thing I’ve read by this author but it won’t be my last This book is little but it is oh so mighty And it has completely captured my heart Please give this book a try when it releases on February 20th 2018 “Never be sorry for loving Heloise No matter who it is no matter how it is done no matter how the person you love receives it Love is the greatest thing a person can do Most go their entire lives knowing only ritual and obligation mistaking it for love” Blog | Twitter | Tumblr | Instagram | Youtube | Twitch The uotes above were taken from an ARC and are subject to change upon publication
