The City of Woven Streets characters Þ 105 Wn woman with her tongue cut off and Eliana’s name tattooed on her skin arrives at the House of Webs Eliana discovers an invisible network of power behind the city’s facade All the while the sea is clawing the shores and the streets are slowly drowni. I wanted to love this book so much And there were a lot of things in it that I loved the descriptions of the island the exuisite language the main character But then there were things that I did not love the overall plot the ending how it felt like the story is stuck in place It took me a long time to get into the story for it to get going at all and once it finally did it felt like it ended all too abruptly with very little explanation Mostly I was left with the feeling that I did not get even a third of what happened so much time was used on build up and what happened to everyone in the end was left unexplained I did like the sudden environmental route it took for a chapter or so but in general it feels like the overall theme was lost somewhere between the beautiful words and that the author was trying a bit too hard I could not help but compare this to The Memory of Water and must say I liked that one a lot better It was coherent This is not a bad book but it s not living up to the potential and expectations Points for the absolutely gorgeous cover

The City of Woven Streets characters Þ 105 He House of Webs but secretly knows she doesn’t really belong there She is hiding a shameful birth defect that would if anyone knew about it land her in the House of the Tainted a prison for those whose very existence is considered a curseWhen an unkno. 35 starsI m so happy that I gave this book a chanceIt s a Finnish fantasydystopian novel about an island slowly sinking into the sea and features a beautifully understated romance between two girls each carrying their own secrets and burdensI don t want to say too much about the plot and the characters at this point because I don t want to give away too much information it s best if you go and discover it by yourselfThe atmosphere that It ranta paints is dreamy and at times eerie The writing is beautiful and there are some truly stunning uotes the prose is rich and full of vivid imageryHowever there is also a downside to this I have to admit that I struggled uite a bit at the beginning the author doesn t do much explaining at start and you have to put together little pieces of information about world building and the characters as you read on Everything in this book feels dreamlike but that is not always good To me it was hard to get a good sense of the world and the characters because of the vagueness of the writing so it took me about 120 pages before I could actually enjoy the story and have a better idea about what s going on Other than that I LOVED the imagery that the book left in my mind all the sea green hues scent of brine and sea salty breeze empty halls gauzy webs floating in the wind the drowned streets of a doomed city and best of all the uiet sweet relationship that blooms between our narrator and a mute girl that one day appears at the templeI adore the world that the author created and the dreamy feeling that persists throughout the novelSo all in all it was a beautiful lyrical read but I had some issues with the sometimes too flowery prose and it took me really long to get into the storyWould I recommend it Well that dependsREAD IF you like to get lost in dreamy fantasy worlds you don t mind a slow read you re looking for something fresh and original you like a slow burn understated romanceDON T READ IF you are looking for a fast paced adventure this one is uite the opposite you dislike purple prose you need the world building and the characters to be well defined and have a strong sense of what is going on
