Court of Shadows | Madeleine Roux
11 posts | 8 read | 13 to read
From the New York Times bestselling author of Asylum comes the second book in an all-new gothic horror series praised as darkly delightful.* In this second book of Madeleine Rouxs expansive gothic horror series, illustrations from artist Iris Compiet and chilling photographs help bring to life a world where the line between monsters and men is ghostly thin. After the frightful events of last autumn, seventeen-year-old Louisa Ditton has settled into her role as a maid at Coldthistle House, but she has not settled into what that means for her humanity. As Louisa struggles to figure out whether she is worthy of redemption, the devilish Mr. Morningside plans a fete one that will bring new guests to Coldthistle House. From wicked humans to Upworlders, angelic beings who look down upon Mr. Morningsides monstrous staff, all are armed with their own brand of self-righteous justice. Even a man claiming to be Louisas father has a role to play, though what his true motive is, Louisa cannot tell. The conflicts will eventually come to a head on the grounds of Coldthistle Houseand the stakes include Louisas very soul. *Publishers Weekly

While out shopping for some #swaps at a local coffee and gift store I came across a new Hammond's flavor to try. It has all things I love - cola, milk chocolate AND pop rocks. Later, on if it lives up to expectations.
And, FINALLY, this book is getting me over the #bookhangover I was stuck in.

Avanders Ooh I can‘t wait to hear about the candy bar! ... and book 😉 2mo
bullbunny Oh me too me too!! 2mo

BethM How‘s that Candy bar? 2mo
JoScho Are you still planning on hosting the All Hallow‘s Read Swap this year? 🤞 2mo
MaleficentBookDragon @BethM @Avanders it was okay. It would have been better if it was just milk chocolate and pop rocks; the cola flavor did nothing for it. I did eat the whole thing though.😄 2mo
BethM Well it was good enough to eat- I call it a win! 2mo
Avanders @MaleficentBookDragon 🤔 I could see that... lol @BethM good perspective 😆 2mo

Maybe my third pick is the charm. I just can't decide what to read next. I'm having a bit of a #bookhangover. Not even a palate cleansing cozy could knock me out of it.
Or, I could just go back to some #audiocrocheting.

julesG That shawl looks interesting. Which pattern is it? 2mo
MaleficentBookDragon @julesG it's called Sand Dune Wrap by Jennifer Dickerson. It is on Ravelry. Check out Fiber Flux on YouTube. There is a video of her making the wrap. 2mo
julesG Thanks! 2mo

The second instalment in this series definitely surprised me with the direction it took. I was very intrigued and greatly enjoyed how it played out. I felt that a few things needed more clarification and expanding, but it was a solid story. I‘m definitely curious as to where the third book will end.

4/5 (just due to some minor pacing problems). A very fascinating sequel to “House of Furies”. Again, I looove the Gothic atmosphere & that it‘s set in the early 19th century. Also, so very ambitious, a lot going on! I love how it involves cross-cultural mythos, as well as insights into the evolution of religion & the nature of “good” & “evil”.

Why do they have to make cover changes when a series isn't over yet. Now my books don't match 😫. My cover for book 1 matches the original planned cover for book 2. They changed it before release though and now the rest of the series will match changes made for book 2. I like when all my books in a series match. Grrr.

GypsyKat Ugh! I feel you! It‘s important to me too that all the books in a series match. 😕 5mo
Jari-chan I hate it when they do that! 🙄 5mo

I may be bias because I fallen in love with Madeleine Roux‘s work since I read the asylum series but this is certainly an amazing sequel to House of Furies. Her characters are beautifully written and it is hard to tell who to trust until the end of the book. Which I know is great, I despise books where it is easy to decipher the outcome. It is full of twists and turns and I couldn‘t put down for one second.
