    Finally, a book about relationships where no one is acting like a child having a temper tantrum. I am so sick of writers manufacturing discord and calling the characters “dark” and “broody” when really they are just petulant and annoying.

    The relationships in Sister Sable are still full of turmoil, but not manufactured misunderstandings; or the result of juvenile insecurities. No one in this book pouted or stormed off - no one slammed doors or punched walls or even threw a vase. I found myself l

    Finally, a book about relationships where no one is acting like a child having a temper tantrum. I am so sick of writers manufacturing discord and calling the characters “dark” and “broody” when really they are just petulant and annoying.

    The relationships in Sister Sable are still full of turmoil, but not manufactured misunderstandings; or the result of juvenile insecurities. No one in this book pouted or stormed off - no one slammed doors or punched walls or even threw a vase. I found myself liking the book more and more once I was truly convinced no one was going to act like so many characters in so many movies, tv shows and books.

    The characters in this book had a wide range of emotions, but childish petulance wasn’t one of them. I’m at the point where that alone will automatically win a book 3 stars from me. Sister Sable wins her other 2 stars for keeping me locked on the page with interest. It even managed to shock me once or twice. No easy feat there either.

    5 stars and a hurray for not making me roll my eyes or want to fling my Kindle across the room.

    (I received an early copy from Library Thing but this has in no way has affected my opinion. I did however then go buy both the Kindle and paperback editions so I can foist them on others as an example of the relationships I want in return recommendations.)

    The book is a magnificent wide ranging tale of politics, war, strategy, tactics, hand-to-hand combat, religion, mind control, drugs, insanity, betrayals..... I could go on and on but in the end it was brilliant fun to read.

    Thoroughly enjoyable. Here is a fascinating tale with many intriguing aspects. The wide scope of creation was impressive and the writers imagination held me to the page. I loved experiencing this new world with the many characters. Only Radimir was truly dislikable, so the book was essentially without easily recognized villains. Excellent book.

    INTELLIGENT SCI-FI THRILLER

    After finishing this I scanned through it again from start to finish. It’s then I realized the book has an

    convoluted plot. It’s actually a very political book but you don’t realize it while reading it for all the action. Beneath all the fast paced writing is a solid story of political conspiracy. It shows a good understanding of espionage and diplomacy and it shows the terrible politics of warfare in a stark and unforgiving light. But none of this was clear

It shows a good understanding of espionage and diplomacy and it shows the terrible politics of warfare in a stark and unforgiving light. But none of this was clear to me on the first reading, because the action is too intense. I got to the end and realized more had transpired than I was at first aware. Scanning over it again was enlightening. The underlying framework of the story is impressive. It is an intelligent thriller.

    Yes, it is really dark book for adults without porn and part of story-line is about relationships. As somebody wrote: "beautiful dark tragedy" about hard decisions, politics, betrayal, about manipulation and war. Without blank descriptions. And very interesting style of writing. Great storyline from beginning, but for me the last quarter of book was perfect. And twists and turns in story were handled with care. Very nicely done. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series soon.

    I really enjoyed this book. It creates it's own world set in the future when the religious group, The Cloistre are seeking to control three countries. King Remy is a good man with a faithful inner circle seeking to protect him. This includes Sister Sable, the Bound Nun. It can be complicated at times (I wish there was a map and a list of characters, especially since it is a foreign future imaginary country and language). There were times that the military strategy lost me, but it quickly returns

    I really enjoyed this book. It creates it's own world set in the future when the religious group, The Cloistre are seeking to control three countries. King Remy is a good man with a faithful inner circle seeking to protect him. This includes Sister Sable, the Bound Nun. It can be complicated at times (I wish there was a map and a list of characters, especially since it is a foreign future imaginary country and language). There were times that the military strategy lost me, but it quickly returns to being a psychological thriller as characters ' secrets and purposes are unveiled layer by layer. Translated into English, my understanding is that two more novels have been printed in their original language. I can hardly wait for their translation. Some people are offended by the periodic bad language, but for me it fits the action and situation the characters find themselves in - and truthfully it didn't seem to happen that often (or I hang out with the wrong crowd..wink wink). Once I started, I had to keep going, so engrossed in the plot, I was.

    This book was amazing and I can't wait for the next installment! I love strong heroines with vulnerabilities, and Sister Sable is such a character. The writing style is slightly more formal and dramatic than I'm used to. I was reading slower but I didn't mind because the writing was really pleasant and I was trying to savor Sable's journey more, especially knowing that there is no news yet of the second book.

    This book was amazing and I can't wait for the next installment! I love strong heroines with vulnerabilities, and Sister Sable is such a character. The writing style is slightly more formal and dramatic than I'm used to. I was reading slower but I didn't mind because the writing was really pleasant and I was trying to savor Sable's journey more, especially knowing that there is no news yet of the second book.

    I also loved the secondary characters. They were all very likable and I must say, General Berringer could have passed off as the leading man here. He was more of an equal to Sable than the King, actually.

    I'm always looking for an element of romance in the books I read. In here, it's lightly touched and I was a bit puzzled where Sable's undying loyalty and love originated from. I hope there will be more of the King and Sable in the sequel.

    Love this. I didn't hesitate to give this a 5-star rating!
