The only things that were a little not as good might be that there were some times jumps between chapters, and the main character had some possible annoying issues which I won't mention because if you read this and what I thought was annoying, you might focus on that and it would ruin your reading experience!
Now I need to go back and read the first one because I'm so curious about what I missed! Aug 17, Ratnika rated it liked it. What problem do all the MCs in this series have with getting a little help?! It's the same as Nameless all over again. Ellie, just like Cami, is in shit way over her head and she absolutely refuses to let anyone help. It's obvious how the others, Cami, Ruby and Avery, care for her very much and want to help but all Ellie does is feel sorry for herself and complain about how she has no one.
I went along with all the pointless whining in the first book because it was okay from Cami's POV but it What problem do all the MCs in this series have with getting a little help?! I went along with all the pointless whining in the first book because it was okay from Cami's POV but it makes no sense from Ellie's. She came across as smart, sensible and so strong in the first book while in this one, her character just deteriorated.

She is basically the girl who needs to be rescued from all the unnecessary trouble she is falling into. So, it got really annoying really fast. Other aspects of the story were pretty much similar to the first.
I loved Avery's character. Overall, it does seem that this series focuses on great guys acting like a hero all the time, some good friends and a pretty whiny MC who falls into truck loads of trouble and needs to be rescued. If only the characters were as good as the world building in these stories sigh! Sep 30, SBC rated it did not like it Shelves: genre-ya-fantasy , genre-z-postapocalyptic-fiction , genre-z-parallel-universe , metamorphosis , motif-faery-folk , retelling-cinderella , motif-witches. I was disappointed. This story had so much potential but the writing style made what was developing nearly incomprehensible.
I really tried to hang in there to understand what was going on. The setting had the potential to be fascinating. A parallel universe in which our history diverged at a certain point when faery creatures came to earth. There are fae and witches, monsters and magic, Magdala nuns whose outfits leave nothing to the imagination and Mithros nuns who run high schools. There is I was disappointed. The problem with the book was that the wonderfully strange setting is hard to understand and the author doesn't help us with that at all. Maybe there were more explanations in book 1 in the series, Snow White's story which I haven't read?
Additionally, the plot moves in mysterious ways, peculiar things develop and happen and we have to guess what it all means.

Mar 21, Dani rated it it was ok Shelves: family-problems , anything-to-do-with-death , fairy-tale-revamp , magic. Reading this book so long after reading Nameless was a bit difficult. I had to try and remember the different terms and places and characters, using context clues and vague hinges most of the time.
From what I can recall of the first one, I think I liked that one more than this one.
This book was still ok, but I felt Ellie went too long without asking for help. I understand it was a part of her character and backstory, but you can only go so far and fall so hard before you seek aid. Another Reading this book so long after reading Nameless was a bit difficult.

Another slight criticism, I felt that Ellie didn't miss her parents as much as I expected. Yes, she often thought of her mother and father, but I didn't get the sense of mourning or sorrow that they were gone. I understood the longing of wishing they were alive, but I missed the emotional sorrow from their passing.

I feel like I need to reread the first book so I can put the timing of the events further into place. This series reminds me so much of the trilogy by Rose Mannering. Both Crow and Mannering take a twist on fairy tales in new ways I haven't seen before. Both trilogies contain new worlds with magics and charms that boggle and intrigue my brain. Crow's books delve into the issues of the protagonists while Mannering's zoom in on the journeys of the protagonists.

This was stronger than the last book. I can for sure see the decent into self-hatred, the abuse turned inward. Crow definitely waxes poetic on her descriptions, occasionally to the point where it doesn't make much sense. But it could get obnoxious. I This was stronger than the last book.
Wayfarer (Tales of Beauty & Madness #2) by Lili St. Crow Review – Ravings of a Manic Reader
I really like being able to trace the old characters through the books— a little of Cami, a little of Ruby. The world remains the most intriguing aspect of these books for me. Extra star, just for that. If I'm being completely honest, this book made my head hurt. The world building is still sketchy in this book as it was in the one before and I had to constantly remind myself to STOP trying to understand everything because it wasn't going to work. The writing was genuine, but could be terrifically confusing sometimes and often lost me in it's imagery.
Patience of If I'm being completely honest, this book made my head hurt. Patience of an angel, that one. Such a precious and good hearted little bean. My favorite thing about this book was the dress. Someone link me to where I can find it, I don't care about the price. Jul 03, bookwormmama rated it it was ok Shelves: nevermind.
Normally I leave off stars when I haven't read through to the end, but I'm giving this the same as I did book one, only this was not as good. I'm surprised because I've liked other things the author has written, but these were not for me. The writing is very disjointed and hops all over. There are fragments. Unnecessary profanity I don't mind when it fits, but this did not.
