    I fell right in love with Silas as he is in this book so much doing good things and he has secrets, but I know what they are mwahahahaahah.So Errin is living in a hovel of a home that she rents from some jerk named Unwin Her mother has some kind of disease that makes her crazy when the full moon is out Poor Errin is trying to keep her mother locked away, making potions to sell to Silas to help her and her mother Errin s brother Lief is also missing Everything seems like doom and gloom whichit actually is because The Sleeping Prince was awakened by the queen and now he s wreaking havoc across the land with his golems Killing everything in his path well almost everything There are things he wants and he will get that at whatever cost Of course now I need the next book to see what is going to happen with that ending.MY BLOG Melissa Martin s Reading List

    Second Book Syndrome Ha, Salisbury wouldn t dream of it The Sleeping Prince completely outshines its predecessor with clever writing, an intricately woven plot and the ability to bring eerie folklore in a fantasy filled world to life.Our new character Errin lives with her mother in the small town of Almwyk, the town is being evacuated because The Sleeping Prince is pillaging his way through Lormere, it s only a matter of time before their next But Errin cannot let this happen, she s convinced her mother has Scarlet Varulv a mythical affliction that makes her mother behave like a beast when the moon is full No one in the town would believe such fairy tales and would likely lock her mother up in a facility for the insane and with nowhere to go Errin is slowly running out of options The Sleeping Prince is a fantastic book that follows Errin travelling the Kingdom in the hopes of finding a cure for her mother with the help of her friend the magnetic and mysterious, Silas Silas is possibly the sweetest, cutest character ever, I mean I loved him from the beginning and I didn t even know what he looked like, he s an all round good guy with a heart of gold sigh , I love him Can I just add that The Sleeping Prince is the opposite to Silas in every way, he s cruel, cunning and swift in his revenge but still a little thrilling I obviously have issues.Errin is such a strong and wholly likable character, she s been forced to grow up and be an adult, she must take care of her mother, pay the bills and taxes, try to keep a roof over her head until her brother, Lief comes home I couldn t help but admire Errin, she was backed into a corner with no options but remained clear headed and confident that she could find a way to fix things she s truly made of tougher stuff than most I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone but by far the most compelling case I have for you reading The Sleeping Prince is the writing Salisbury weaves a gorgeous tail, picking up on the clues left in The Sin Eater s Daughter and adding her own spin on fairy tales and myths The fates of old and new characters are slowly joined as this complex plot heats up This book demands you sit up and pay attention from the beginning as a shocking revelation is revealed and trust me, it will break your heart The Sleeping Prince was a captivating sequel, filled with refreshing characters, eerie folklore, scary magical creatures and lots of action and adventure This book was completely unpredictable, loaded with plot twists and a devastating cliffhanger that will leave you reeling and a tad excited for the next book This rich fantasy book is perfect for those of you who like your villains deliciously dark, your heroines strong and independent and a slow burn romance that may be doomed from the start.Literary ly Obsessed Blog Twitter Instagram

    Were you disappointed She takes a deep breath, looking down at her hands My heart was My head wasn t Most days I m at war with myself My head wins, usually And for that I m glad Once again I find myself playing the role of the little weird black sheep The general opinion on this series is that the first book is just shy of decent, while the second is utterly outstanding Well, I found both of them to be equally outstanding Had I to follow my very personal taste I d probably I say I liked The Sin Eater s Daughter better, but, trying to be as objective as I can, each book has its very own specific and different strengths and weaknesses, and though I may prefer one set over the other, they basically even out Errin is a very different character from Twylla, female lead of the first book Their lives are different, and their personalities, and their goals Twylla s development is evident and striking, but Errin is stronger to begin with, and the hardship she had to endure in the last months of her life makes her an admirable, strong heroine She s loyal and level headed, and easy to empathize with You ll probably remember from my review of The Sin Eater s Daughter that I d been hopelessly enchanted by the world building, the mythology, the folklore Well, in a sense, The Sleeping Prince offers a little less of that all I missed, for instance, the depth conferred on the story by all the religious issues arisen in book one , while on the other hand delightfully broadening the horizon We come to know about alchemy, about the Sleeping Prince, about how the kingdoms came to be and the stories that breathed life into them It was deeply fascinating, and again we find that pinch of eeriness that makes the whole picture so much enticing and alluring Lief broke my heart For multiple reasons More than once The same goes for Errin s family history Funny thing is, I enjoyed it because this series is a masterpiece of unexpectedness You think you know what thing are, and how they went, until you don t It s sadistically enjoyable and supremely painful I absolutely want to see of our villain, who s so charismatic and sinister he gets to say things like this and sound solid and fleshed out all the same Why are you doing this Because I can Because I slept for five hundred years and now I want some sport The Scarecrow Queen just became one of my most anticipated releases ever Barely than a month is left now, and I m convinced my brain will collapse before There are so many questions I have, and so many fears, and so many hopes In the meantime, all I can do is recommend this series to everyone you won t find another like this if you look for a thousand years Believe me You don t want to miss this.

    The first time to read a sequel that is so bloody better than the first book.Look, I still find the first book to be horrible can t change that , but I just realized that despite me finding the The Sin Eater s Daughter an epic fail, the story of the series is now really one of a kind.Let me summarize what the plot is Once upon there s that douche of a prince who can t keep his wiener in his pants He s also a massive jerk and so powerful, people are scared of him shitless The people got fed up and decided to hire someone to poison the son of a bitch He was now cursed to sleep forever He slept for so long that he became a fairy tale to scare children and eventually, some people forgot that he is a history lesson, not a myth.Until an idiot decided to wake him up.Now the prince is awake and he wants to kill everyone.I did mention that he s a psycho, right Side note This book has a new set of characters and though you might be confused a little bit from the start, it will get better Take that from someone who has a terrible memory.Let me tell you why this one is so much better than the first book.1 No insta love and love triangle or any shape that is possible.Like for real, yes So yes yes yes I hated the I m so torn between boy1 and boy2 shit in The Sin Eater s Daughter It ruined the book for me But this This is glorious I m not going to spoil anything about the shipping but rest assure that this book is no Disney.2 The characters.Unlike book 1 where the most interesting character is the villain instead of the MC, The Sleeping Prince s characters are all well written I love the way that the heroine is not just a good girl who works hard but a heroine who will resort to blackmail, stealing and will fucking punch you if you come between her and her family There are also a lot of antagonists in this book and it makes the story so damn interesting.3 The story plot scenes whateverMelinda Salisbury shocked me with this one I thought it would be the usual Fantasy book where cliffhangers may or may not happen, HEA is possible and all the common scenes that we can see in a book like this But no Sorry Paige, you re dead wrong.The book has a touch of Game of Thrones factor and I m not sure if I ll celebrate because it s freaking good or weep because GOT, man You know what s in a GOT book.Oh, and there s so many murders and stabbings in this book Rejoice One thing is for sure though WHEN WILL THE LAST BOOK COME OUT

    DNF 77% I have not read the first book and thank the lord I dodged that bullet, because from what i hear it s even worst than this Are you kidding me The book is called Sleeping Prince so you would think it would be about well, the Sleeping prince The prologue got me all kinds of excited since he was actually in it Now let s not get carried away, it s not actually about a fairytale prince came to life and now trying to conquer the world, he is like the background The main story follows an utterly boring girl named Erin She lives with her sick mother, father is dead and the asshole brother is nowhere to be found isn t he the protagonist from the first book YICKS Let s talk Silas now, shall we HE Him MY sweet, sweet child WAY TOOO GOOD FOR THIS BOOK Why O why He was such an interesting character It s a shame he wasn t written by a better author Aft first, I was convinced it would be a 5 star read just because of Silas Once he disappeared, we got stuck with Erin and her mighty thought I couldn t read this any longer Needless to say, i will not be reading the last book either I suppose it s hard to remain on the side of reason when a five hundred year old fairy tale comes to life and lays waste to the castle and the people in the country next door

    Why do I matter to you You don t Then why are you doing this Because I can Because I slept for five hundred years and now I want some sport Ladies and Gentlemen, The Sleeping Prince has woken up and now he s coming for you Despair From the first line till the last word this books is filled with despair Do not try to be brave Do not ask your Gods for help Do not hope Do not wait for heroes to come and save you Fortune favors the bold So does death Fear is your new friend Embrace it Accept it. It will either preserve you or drive you mad The chose is yours, or is it

    Welcome to the Kingdom of Tregellan A place ruled by logic and science The opposite of Lormer, which we aquatinted ourselves with in book one We re not Lormerians, with their temples and their living goddesses, and their creepy royal family We re people of science, and reason.But what happens when a 500 year old fairy tale wakes up Where logic goes Right, out of the window People panic People turn to superstition It s in their nature to seek shelter in anything that at least slightly can reassure them But nor logic, nor Gods can give such shelter any longer What happens when hope is lost Burn all the food, and people will starve, weaken, and turn on one another Destroy the temples and their acolytes, and the people will have nowhere to turn, no sanctuary, no charity No hope.Then people turn into monsters They steal, they betray, they kill This is a new world Our heroine Errin lives in this world, in a god forsaken place called Almwyk Just six months ago which now feel like ages ago she had it all family, home, occupation, friends Now she lives in a shack with ill mother and only her skills as an apothecary to make and sell dangerous poisons to sustain them She lives in constant fear that greedy local mayor will take advantage of her, that hunger will never pass, that soldiers will come someday and kill her, that tomorrow will never come Once upon a time there was a young apprentice apothecary who lived on a red brick farm with a golden thatch roof, surrounded by green fields She had a father who called her a clever girl and gave her a herb garden all of her own, and a mother who was whole and kind She had a brother who knew how to smile and laugh.But then one day her father had an accident and, despite her efforts to save him, he died And so did all of her hopes and dreams The farm the family s home for generations was sold Her mother s brown hair greyed, her spirit dulled as she drifted towards Almwyk like a wraith, uncomplaining, unfeeling And her brother, once impulsive and joyful, became cold and hard, his eyes turned east with malice.Errin has an only friend Silas a man she met a few months ago in the woods, who became, first her client for poisons, and then her only friend But Errin never saw his face he s always hooded and inconspicuous It s no wonder he acts that way, because anyone can betray anyone, and you can t trust a soul with your life or your secrets But at least Silas is here and he s a friend, or is he

    Errin is one of the strongest heroines I ve read about She lives a terrible life, she struggles everyday she s no hero, she does what she must to survive If it were real gold someone would have had it off her neck by now Gods, if it were real gold, I might have had it off her neck At least if it were gold it would be worth something.But despite all of it, she s so head strong I couldn t not admire her Enough I don t have time for this self pity s a luxury that I can t afford.Like bread Or pride.Enough, Errin There s work to do Get up.She stands up, she goes on, she fights There s nothing that matters to her than family Family always comes first But also, family is the thing that hurts us the most, or is it

    Mythology That s the trouble with knowing things you can t un know them Once you let yourself look at them, or say them aloud, they become real.Remember how the world looked in book one We were isolated. We knew almost nothing With the heroine Twylla we pieced information crumb by crumb, but if you thought you knew anything in the end of book one, reconsider Now our world is widening, we are not just in one palace we travel, we learn, we gasp in terror, we run But oh, how deviously genius Melinda Salisbury is in her spinning of the story we thought going outdoors will make us less claustrophobic, but after this book you will want to cuddle and lock yourself in a castle again This new world is terrifying Monsters do not live in fairy tales any longer They roam the land, collecting souls for their master What we thought was real turned out half truth going from teller to teller and changing in the process until it became unrecognizable, but we still believed that new lighter version The author stamps on our belief it crumbles under new facts that grow and spread without any regard for what was before Religion, science, myth everything becomes one It felt like my eyes were open before, but, no, before I looked at the world with wide closed eyes, and now I am wide awake.Twist upon twist The pacing of the book is so rapid, I didn t have time for respite I don t remember when was the last time I read a book with so many twists in it Maybe never I felt like Jon Snow You know nothing, Nastassja Honestly, I don t know how I ve survived the book with so many emotions coursing through me And after all the revelations and twists I still can t imagine what will happen in book three That is how one writes a book You can make as much theories as you please, but the story is so unpredictable, you probably will end up in the opposite direction from your theories I deliberate giving little information about characters This book, as the previous one, is written from the 1st POV, so we see everything through Errin s perspective She s a reliable narrator than Twylla, and there was never a question from my side why the girl acted one way or another Errin was a perfect narrator to follow on this terrifying journey Reading this book also gave me a new angle to look at the characters from book one Dead or alive you will understand them better, and some of them will surprise you, because, again, you thought you knew them, but you didn t, not really Character development is fantastic in this series The author shows and tells, and it s evidently that at first the author created the whole story and then divided it into three parts by giving information to us in little doses vial after vial, and, at times, deliberately misleading us, because first impressions are deceptive and you can t look into the problem s core without learning the problem from A to Z.The language is a thing in itself so beautiful, so very measured, like an alchemic formula coming to life if composed correctly It was a pure joy to read this story and savor every word, every symbol of it.This story is a pure alchemy on which it is easy to become addicted If you haven t read The Sin Eater s Daughter go read it And then come back and read this book If you read book one and it didn t make you feel, give The Sleeping Prince a chance to awaken your feelings, trust me, the guy knows a thing or two about slumber

    Full review available at my blog __________________________________ Note The only reason I did give this series a chance was Katerina s amazing review of this book, do check it out here .My head is exploding and I can barely believe what I just read I will need rehab after this book Or painkillers Or both Throughout the years I have found that a perfect book for me consists of several components good writing, interesting characters I can sympathize with, an angsty love story I m so lame, I know and a mysterious plot It is the last that is perfectly executed here Don t get me wrong, The Sleeping Prince has all the aspects listed above, but what impressed me the most was its unpredictability I really love it when I don t straightaway guess where the plot is going The whole book stars in a way that makes you think it is going to be And as a person, who s read my fair share of YA fantasy, I thought I ve got this I know what s going on And then BAM Katrin was wrong Katrin didn t guess right And I love this I love when it happens and when it is executed in a logical manner that perfectly makes sense The prologue stunned me, I definitely did not expect that view spoiler Poor Merek, I really liked the guy and hoped to see of him Is what I initially thought Lucky me, Ms Salisbury managed to catch me completely off guard with the ending hide spoiler

    This is the second instalment in the Sin Eater s Daughter trilogy, of which I only ever read the synopsis for the first book and so spent the first 50 pages of reading this second book in utter confusion, until I realised this followed a separate protagonist s movements It wasn t until the third chapter that the protagonist, Erinn s, name was even mentioned and, even then, I assumed this was original protagonist, Twylla s, self appointed name, to live a life of undercover solitude I also, once I realised Twylla and Erinn were, in fact, separate people, had a wild and completely false theory that that would account for this seemingly sudden shift in locales and perspectives Struggles all round Once I realised my mistakes I began to try to appreciate this story for what it was However I still found I had some sources of contention.It took almost half of this book for the figure mentioned in the title to make an appearance in the story line It wasn t a case of not enjoying the first half of the narrative but I felt like I was constantly eagerly awaiting a momentous shift of some sort that would switch the very dialogue and internal monologue heavy narration up a gear Of course, I now understand that not all of this was the book s fault and was partly my own confusion over the main character.I didn t entirely dislike this and thought it acted as a good bridge between the first and third books, but it did suffer from middle book syndrome, a little I found it took too long to set up Erinn s character again, the fault probably lays with the reader for this and I also found I could guess all of the plot twists, before they occurred.This was an enjoyable fantasy story and I am intrigued to see how the events of the first book and this one will align into one, cohesive finale I only hope there are original fantastical elements explored, as that is what made the first instalment so enjoyable for me.
