Welcome! (That sounded really cool in my head). Today I will be writing about the second instalment in the Florence Waverly Series, Luminaire by Ciye Cho. This book follows Florence Waverly through the steps she takes to become one of the Nimelans. All Nimelans must have a life path, and
she is an exception; the only catch is that she is human. That’s rough. Florence
I was impressed with this book. It was a thrilling read, although it took me a long time to read, it was entertaining which is something that is important in books for me. The setting was improved and I was able to understand the inner workings of Nimela far better. Especially the idea that Nimela has a heart was a thoroughly interesting aspect of this book. It is interesting to think about.
: She has
really grown into who she is. She seems less afraid to stand for what she
believes in. She is wiling to fight Rolan not just sit back while he orders her
around. Although entering a maze filled with deadly creatures to defy him is
going a bit far, but I think we’ve all done that at some point in our lives. “I’ll
prove you wrong HA!” I think she deserved to be accepted by the animal
trainers, but unfortunately that wasn’t possible although the way she crossed
Provonox can’t help her any. Hopefully she is still able to find a place in the
♥ Rolan: He was kind of a jerk. Let’s be honest here, he was sending her the message they were done to protect himself from what he might become. I hope that he realizes his mistake and doesn’t do this again because that would just get old very quickly, especially after how sweet and nice he was at the end of this book. I think that I grew attached to him at the end of this book and if he’s a jerk again, I’m gonna go through an emotionally confused state. I also hope that he is more wary of his councillors.
♥ Yolee: It’s sad that she wasn’t able to end the tournament at the same time as the other builder novices, but she seems young and too nervous to be able to survive the whole maze by herself. I couldn’t have seen that ending well. I’m happy she went straight to builder, because seeing her die would be heartbreaking.
♥ Wynn: I can see him getting corrupted by the Guardians, it’s a bad thing to say, but it’s quite possible. Also can we mention he’s adorable and he should definitely be with Marilenna. It would counteract her attitude.
♥ Marilenna: She seemed like a real arse at the beginning. And no I didn’t originally type arse. But throughout the story she changed. I wouldn’t be surprise that she is working against them, I’m suspicious though sooo. But other than that she seems to be living under her father’s ideas and to take her life into her own hands was a hard thing for her to do, but she did it!
♥ Provonox: He’s a sly son of a gun. And don’t you forget it. Just because he let Wynn join his life path doesn’t mean he’s any better. I think he’s just trying to seem like a better person, that won’t last long.
♥ Kieran: WHAT THE HELL?!?! What is going on here???
