The Salbine Sisters

While trying to draw forth elemental fire she learns that Salbine has withdrawn from her the gifts every sister works to master. Would have been 5 star but there were so many things I wanted to know I wanted to know or anything about Salbine The world was not really developedThe characters were nicely developed I liked the way Maddy and Lillian s characters grew over the course of the book and how you really got to know them this was how a romance should be written although I must admit I was expecting fantasy and less romanceWould like a seuel with Rose and her consort as the MCsA solid 4 star book

READ The Salbine Sisters

On her journey to another monastery to research her condition Maddy's faith in both herself and Salbine are tested to their limit. Sarah Ettritch s new novel is one of those stories that sneaks up on you snuggles in close and seduces you into reading just a few pages before you put it down The words flow so easily and so sweetly on the page that you re halfway through it before you realise the house is uiet the news is muted on TV and everybody else has long since gone to bedThis is lesbian romance at its finest with characters who are so wonderfully alive that you can t help but fall in love with them from the very first page Rarely do I come across a character who so completely so instantaneously and so effortlessly makes such a lasting connection with me as I found myself enjoying with Maddy She s honest and genuine both a loving friend and a friendly lover Even though she s involved in a May December romance with Lillian their love never feels cliched or tenuousThe Salbine Sisters themselves are a psudeo religious Order of sorceresses Organized in a convent like setting these women are called to the service of Salbine and come to learn the art of drawing the elements as part of their faith Many of the women are lesbians but this is neither remarkable nor a point of controversy the joining of two women as concubines is just as special just as much a cause for celebration and just as common place as the joining of a man and woman in marriage As such Sarah is free to explore the love of Maddy and Lillian without having to deal with feelings of angst or anxiety regarding their sexual orientationIn terms of storyline this is a simple novel but a powerful one and one where upon reflection it s easy to discern the deeper meaning so subtly woven into the plot While her sexuality does not make her an outsider the fact that Maddy is malflowed attempting to draw the elements causes her crippling pain does Lost confused and uestioning her place she begs the Abbess for permission to travel to another Order to research the journals of another long deceased malflowed sister Along the way a lack of understanding about her condition causes others to misunderstand her to judge her wrongly and to imprison her simply for being who she isIt s at this point that the simple romance becomes a far complex drama of love and courage Without giving away the key turning points of the story Maddy suffers both emotionally and physically for the misunderstandings of others but she remains true to herself through it all finding a renewed purpose in the care of a young girl abandoned by her mother and cruelly imprisoned as a thief Again I don t want to spoil the ending but it s a safe bet that love and Lillian will truly conuer allAs much as I enjoed this novel the ending bothered me at first I felt like there was no resolution to Maddy s uest to understand being malflowed no tidy explanation of how and why she came to be that way It was then of course that the pieces came together and the deeper meaning emerged uite cleverly Sarah uses Maddy to explore what it means to be an outsider even as she fools us with a world where that uality which should make Maddy an obvious outsider her sexual orientation is embraced and acceptedThere s no resolution because ultimately it s no important to understand why Maddy is malflowed than than it is to understand how she came be a lesbian Instead the story is about simply accepting that which makes us different recognizing what is truly important and in learning how to live happily ever after It s an interesting way of making the reader ask those very same uestions even as we enjoy the ride of a thoroughly rewarding love story

She gave up everything to become a Salbine Sister member of a religious order of powerful female mages But when Maddy nearly dies. Gosh I loved this read I ve seen this book around for awhile but always passed it up and now I wish I hadn tThe book mainly centers around the character of Maddy a sister in a monastery that worships a female goddess that is known for giving the gift of drawing on the elements of water air fire and earth to her chosen ones Maddy s been chosen but when it comes to her gifts they re not what she expected nor what anyone in recent memory has ever seenI read a lot of lesfic and lament about the overdone tropes a couple that doesn t communicate a couple that fights with each other instead of joining forces to overcome obstacles too much angst forced drama predictability and so on I m happy to say this book didn t have any of those making it a fresh readThe book takes place in a medieval type world with paranormal aspects Though it has a fantasy world vibe which often implies action and adventure this book isn t about that The journey is about Maddy s internal struggles and finding her way after she doubts her purpose She s a great character and I really loved following her pathWhat s also refreshing is that the book starts off with Maddy already in a relationship and we get to see it grow stronger as she and her girlfriend become closer And who is she in a relationship with An older woman that is described as plump and pleasing looking but not pretty Unfortunately we don t get details on Maddy or Lillian outside of that but we definitely don t get the perfect and unrealistic supermodels we so often see And where other authors take pleasure in inserting angst and dragging it out to increase the drama that also didn t happen There were so many instances in this book where a problem was dropped into the story and instead of us having to agonize chapter upon chapter to get a resolution Ettritch got straight to the point I would hug this author alone for that if I couldI found the entire narrative to be engaging and I was completely transported to another world There was also something about the read I can only describe as warm This one really got to the heart of me and in a rare feat it actually got me teary but in a good wayThis is another indie author that managed to give us a high uality read in both editing and story line I m lucky to have found a plethora of Sarah Ettritch books on Scribd and I ll be reading every one of themI definitely recommend this
