[Pdf] Unicorn Tracks BY Julia Ember
Y me in the best possible way Alas I m very sad to say that was not the case While Unicorn Tracks is not a bad book far from it it failed to impress me despite its very compelling premiseI adore fantasy books specially when they don t have the generic Victorian England vibe Finding a good one that is influenced by places and cultures I rarely heard andor read about feels like unearthing a rare gem I am immediately prepared to love the book Which is why I feel Scala for Java Developers especially guilty when I don t I am not saying I hated Unicorn Tracks but I cannot say I loved itither It s of a liking it but with Strings Attached Were it NOT FOR THE FEW ISSUES I for the few issues I with this book I probably would ve given it at least a 45 star ratingLet s start off with what I liked most the setting While I do feel that there could have been development in the world building I definitely njoyed what we got uite a lot From what the book offers us we learn that Nazwimbe is a still developing country trying to keep up with the rest of the world s advances but despite that and the tough way of travelling to and fro it is a popular tourist destination because of its wide variety of mythological creatures Which are not so mythological there of course I was fascinated while reading
about Nazwimbe s customs and specially the laws and the repercussions of breaking themMnemba is a great Nazwimbe s customs and traditions Vermeer to Eternity especially laws and the repercussions of breaking themMnemba is a great rounded main character whose narrative isasy to follow and understand but it felt a little Heaven to Betsy emotionless to me and that s why I couldn t fully relate to her I felt for those around her than Mnemba herselfspecially Bi Trembla who just might be my favourite out of So B. It everyone alongside Mnemba s little brother As for the other main character I didn t like Kara At all She feltither too underdeveloped or maybe I didn t care Cabaret enough to notice and that s why she felt flat I struggled to figure out her motivations orven if she had any and didn t at all appreciate how reckless and disregarding of the rules Yes sometimes risks need to be taken but the ones Kara made were unnecessary and I was sad she roped Mnemba up in themThe romance started out cute and I was fully prepared to love it But then it got a little too close to the insta love border and my xcitement waned Then it happened with no real foundation behind it other than Mnemba s constant thoughts of Kara s hair and skin colour And then it got brushed aside till it became convenient to use again I felt also that it was of a codependent relationship at times than an actual romance and ach character was using the other for their own gain rather than having genuine feelings I would have liked it if both Mnemba s and Kara s sensitive issues were touched upon as wellIn conclusion Unicorn Tracks is a good light fantasy novel takes the readers to a fascinating new place with rich culture and they spend only a few hours with magical beings coming straight out the imagination While it wasn t the most captivating read of my life I still had fun reading about Mnemba s world and would definitely like to learn about it The first thing that attracted me to this book was the cover I mean rightRight away Embers immerses you into this fantasy safari land As a reader you hear about creatures like Chimera and mermaids like they are rhinos and dolphins Our main Pov is a female tour guide that works for her cousin A new set of tourists come to the camp in search of Unicorns They are a father daughter duo and they have brought with them lots of research The romance in this book is a slow burn and I loved it The two women are both so uniue and stubborn Another aspect I loved about them was that they were comfortable with their bodies They never felt self conscious of if they did Embers didn t include it There was no whining or too much self doubt I also liked that they were both comfortable with their sexuality In the beginning I felt like we were thrown into this world and just xpected to follow along and believe in it but Embers built up the world ven as the story progressed I really Trading Places: The Netherlandish Merchants in Early Modern Venice enjoyed the world and all of the characters It s been a long time since I ve read a story where I ve connected to so many of the characters and felt for them on a deeper level The plot and the pacin.

I Love Them Ilove them I liked the stop the poachers plot line and another review noted it felt like The Wild Thornberries movie which I totally agree withBut on the flip side I had trouble ngaging with the writing style It was Hannah Montana: The Movie easy to read but for me there was no spark nothing that made me feelmotional or deep about the characters It was just ntertaining but not mind blowing I also think the romance was insta lovey and while I liked the characters individually the whole I love you after they just met did make me ye roll a littleBUT I they just met did make me ye roll a littleBUT I I d still recommend this book because I think my issues are personal It has some great characters and fun action seuences and a good depiction of a rape survivor that I liked I just think the writing style and romance aspects weren t for meFull review to comeBook 2 of SapphicAThon A sff book complete Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to author Julia Ember Unicorns aren t tameable Everybody in Nazwimbe knows that This was an interesting YA fantasy story featuring some mythical creaturesI liked Mnemba she wa DNF at page 86This book isn t bad I just got bored very time I picked it up and I know if I finished it it would only be 25 or 3 stars anyway I just didn t care what happened to the characters I like the fantasy world of this and that the girls were protecting unicorns but their relationship had no angst and the story was predictable and rushed because this book is 150 pages long.
