The Salbine Sisters

She gave up everything to become a Salbine Sister member of a religious order of powerful female mages But when Maddy nearly dies. Well I don t say this often but I m glad this one is done I don t think I could have managed much of this oldey timey road trip with two nuns and an orphan I had a total disconnect with the characters or their romantic feelings for each other and the plot couldn t save it from being a tedious affair Another inn another torch bearing mob another internal whine fest from Maddy on why Salbine had forsaken her who is Salbine anywayI know not many share my experience so maybe it s my mood or just the wrong book at the wrong time OnwardsffThemes nuns fireballs unwashed peasants street urchins this was not my bag meh25 stars

While trying to draw forth elemental fire she learns that Salbine has withdrawn from her the gifts every sister works to master. This is one of the slightly fantastic novels that made me read it in only two days simply couldn t put it down Easy to read and thoroughly enjoyable In a way it s an old fashioned adventure story which I love

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
