    The Five Daughters of the Moon is the first book in the fantasy duology The Waning Moon The sequel, The Sisters of the Crescent Empress, will come out this fall.I decided to pick it up because its setting the Crescent Empire is inspired by Imperial Russia and the Russian Revolution.This novella follows five sisters Alina six , Merile eleven , Sibilia fifteen , Elise sixteen and Celestia twenty two , the daughters of the Crescent Empress and the Moon There are two chapters in the PoV The Five Daughters of the Moon is the first book in the fantasy duology The Waning Moon The sequel, The Sisters of the Crescent Empress, will come out this fall.I decided to pick it up because its setting the Crescent Empire is inspired by Imperial Russia and the Russian Revolution.This novella follows five sisters Alina six , Merile eleven , Sibilia fifteen , Elise sixteen and Celestia twenty two , the daughters of the Crescent Empress and the Moon There are two chapters in the PoV of every sister, which was enough to develop all of them My favorite was Alina, because she was the youngest and at the same time she was the one who saw the most maybe too much The other sisters think that Alina is haunted, that her mind is weak, but it scom...

    First off if you re like me and don t pay enough attention, you might miss that this book is the first of a duology It very much just comes to a stop, and will require the second volume to become a full story You might want to hold off until you have your hands on both of them to start reading, because they re the same story.Anyway, The Five Daughters of the Moon is a historical fantasy based on the story of the Russian revolution If you know the story of ...

    A fantasy retelling of the Russian revolution and the fate of the Romanov sisters Here, the Crescent Empress is wedded to the Moon, who is the symbolic father of her five daughters Celestia the empress to be , Elise, Sibilia, Merile, and Alina the youngest The Crescent Empress has pushed to expand the boundaries of her empire, rather than attending to the needs of her subjects The peasants are toiling for nothing, the men dying in far off wars, and revolution brew...

    This is such an interesting world Both immersive and incredibly surreal due to the parallels with real historical events As described, it takes inspiration from the Russian revolution, the five daughters being the heirs to the Crescent Empire The villain is really well written I disliked him a LOT and found myself rooting hard for Celestia to kick his butt I look forward to soul beads being explainedin the sequel out in November 17 I think as the concept really grabbed me I d re This is such an interesting world Both immersive and incredibly surreal due to the parallels with real historical events As described, it takes inspiration from the Russian revolution...

    I learned about this little known new release from an article that compared this to Catherynne Valente s Deathless Apart from the pseudo 1917 Russian setting, the two books have little to nothing in common.The Five Daughters of the Moon, first in a duology by novice Finnish writer Leena Likitalo is essentialy a YA novel that follows the 5 princesses of the Crescent Empire, which ressembles although rather vaguely Revolutionary Russia.Now I know a thing or two about the Russian revolution, b I learned about this little known new release from an article that compared this to Catherynne Valente s Deathless Apart from the pseudo 1917 Russian setting, the two books have little to nothing in common.The Five Daughters of the Moon, first in a duology by novice Finnish writer Leena Likitalo is essentialy a YA novel that follows the 5 princesses of the Crescent Empire, which ressembles although rather vaguely Revolutionary Russia.Now I know a thing or two about the Russian revolution, because my mother had ...

    Involving fantasy from a Finnish writer As I m attending the SF Worldcon in Helsinki, I wanted to read some Finnish fantasy and science fiction Otherwise I wouldn t have chosen to read this book it seems aimed at young adults However, I m glad I did the author is obviously talented, and I will look out for her future books.It is loosely based on the fate of the Romanov s after the Russian revolution, but with an injection of fantasy elements, and an invented society based on Moon worship Involving fantasy from a Finnish writer As I m attending the SF Worldcon in Helsinki, I wanted to read some Finnish fantasy and science fiction Otherwise I wouldn t have chosen to read this book it seems aimed at young adults However, I m glad I did the author is obviously talented, and I will look out for her future books.I...

    Oooh this was good I wasn t sure such a short book could successfully handle five first person narrators, but Likitalo did it super well The narrative voices felt distinct, and the multiple points of view in addition to the time skips brought a great sense of fragmentation to the book, which I think really underlined the theme of breaking up of empire Likitalo uses unreliable narrators really neatly, too I love stories with sisters being part of a three sister family myself , and Likita Oooh this was good I wasn t sure such a short book could successfully handle five first person narrators, but Likitalo did it super well The narrative voices felt distinct, and the multiple points of view in addition to the time skips b...

    I struggled to rate this one It s beautifully written and the five POV characters are nicely distinct I didn t necessarily love all the characters, but that s fine Plus, even only getting two chapters a piece, most of them have good character growth My problem is that this does t feel like a complete book to me I ve enjoyed a lot of the Tor novellas, but I think this one should have been published as a full length novel I see that it s planned to be a duology so why not publish it all t I struggled to rate this one It s beautifully written and the five POV characters are nicely distinct I didn t necessarily love all the characters, but that s fine Plus, even only getting two chapters a piece, most of them have good character growth My problem is that this does t feel like a complete book to me I ve enjoyed a lot of the Tor novellas, but I think this one should have been published as a full length novel I see that it s planned to be a duology so why not...
