Girl Serpent Thorn ☆ Who isn’t afraid of her whose eyes linger not with fear but with an understanding of who she is beneath the poisonSoraya thought she knew her place in the world but when her choices lead to conseuences she never imagined she begins to uestion who she is and who she is becominghuman or demon Princess or monster. I am both the Sleeping Beauty and the enchanted castle; the princess drowses in the castle of her flesh Angela Carter VampirellaAs someone who is new to Melissa Bashardoust's novels I can't really say how this novel compares to her previous one but what I can say is that Girl Serpent Thorn is a delightful breath of fresh air in the YA fantasy genre I'm always on the search for fairytale retellings that incorporate non Western stories and this Persian inspired spin on the poisonous girl in the garden was truly incredibleIt's really hard to touch on the plot aside from what is shared in the synopsis because there were many twists and turns that I wasn't expecting across the length of the book Let's just say that secrets abound and characters can't always be trusted Your emotions will be tested not only by the sort of love triangle but by Soraya's inner battles with the affliction that holds her I cannot imagine not being able to touch or be touched by another soul and I was intrigued by the physical and mental conseuences that this brought on our main character I think I'm going to stop here and leave it up to you to decide if you'd like to read this story for yourself but I'm really glad to have read this one and I'm very interested in going back and picking up Girls Made of Snow and Glass while waiting for whatever she decides to write next Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy via NetGalley Free read õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ó Melissa Bashardoust

Melissa Bashardoust ó 4 Download Ily safe only in her gardens it’s not just a storyAs the day of her twin brother’s wedding approaches Soraya must decide if she’s willing to step outside of the shadows for the first time Below in the dungeon is a demon who holds knowledge that she craves the answer to her freedom And above is a young man. slams hand on table I wanted GAY—★—Girl Serpent Thorn is an enthrallingly written fantasy drawing inspiration from Persian mythology and Sleeping Beauty Soraya the twin sister of the Shah should be able to walk the streets of her country freely and touch anything without the worry that it will wither away But for her entire life she has been cursed with a poisonous touch with the blood of a div demon coursing through her When a div is captured in a local village Soraya may find the cure to her curse—or a threat that endangers her family and countryAfter reading the first few chapters I was afraid that I might end up disappointed There is a plot twist—though I’d say it is like a plot reveal since it wasn’t particularly surprising—and when it happened I feared that its obviousness would ruin the rest of the story for me Fortunately the remainder of the book unfurls deliciously without as much predictabilityI flew through this book in a matter of only a few days I remember staying up late in bed to read this with only the warm light of my lamp and this immersive twisting story to keep me company Something about Bashardoust’s writing is gripping and lends this book a classic fairytale feeling While I may have liked her previous book Girls Made of Snow and Glass I think her writing definitely improved in this one and it is utterly transportive She had read enough stories to know that the princess and the monster were never the same She had been alone long enough to know which one she was Soraya was a fascinating character to follow throughout this book She grapples with her inability to become close with anyone—from a fear that stems both from herself and everyone around her a fear that she is nothing than her curse and a blight on her family Her loneliness became a part of her as did her feelings of shame and self loathing and all of this only contributed to the uestionable decisions she madeHonestly I found myself wanting from her—perhaps it’s the lady villain lover in me but I just really would’ve loved to see her give in to the idea that she was a monster and relish in it But that truly was an issue with my own personal taste and I also realized that that isn’t the point of her character Soraya is someone who is learning how to be herself and how to love herself after fearing what it means to be Soraya And all of this growth happens as she gets closer to a villain that she can actually envision herself becoming which just makes her development even better She explores her own monstrosity and reclaims what it means for her after having it defined by everyone her entire lifeI also had the same issues with the side characters; I wanted to see from both the villain and Parvaneh They certainly didn’t feel two dimensional and were both interesting characters and I enjoyed learning about them and their backgrounds But for me there was still something missing from themProbably my biggest source of dismay was that the romance between Soraya and Parvaneh did not deliver everything I wanted and I ached for from it I think this was due to the false advertising that this would be pretty focused on the ff romance While the romance is there and it is wonderful and lovely and I adore it it definitely wasn’t as central as I was expecting and I really wish it had been I felt the same way with Bashardoust’s previous book so perhaps it is a stylistic choice of hers to not write too much romance in her books But I think their relationship would have benefited from developmentscenes regardless—I loved the scenes between them and I simply wanted sapphic goodness She had thought nothing would be incredible than the simple sensation of touch but she’d been wrong incredible still was the idea that she could be dangerous all her thorns on display and that someone would dare to touch her anyway Even though I don’t think the full potential of this book was reached I still found it to be a captivating story and I thought it was a well done exploration of loneliness self loathing and the impacts of being raised to fear yourself If you’re looking for an entrancing fantasy that feels like a fairytale with an antiheroine who goes on a journey to learn and love who she is this book is for you Unfortunately I just wanted a little bit from it—★— rep Persian coded cast wlw MC multi gender attracted and LI content warnings violence murderdeath imprisonment war depictionsmentions of bloodAll uotes are taken from an advance copy and may differ in final publication
