    Kindle Edition ¹ The Ordinary PDF/EPUB æ ordinary epub, The Ordinary MOBIThis book takes place in the same universe as Kirith Kirin though it is not a seuel It has some of the same strengths as its predecessor and suffers from some of the same faults Specifically its prose is outstanding but too much so In place of suspense and emotional depth we get paragraph after paragraph of wordy world building It becomes a snooze fest It’s a shame because the concept of the book is inventive There are two worlds on a distant planet joined by a portal The two worlds are very different one is based on science and has developed from an Earth colony ship and the other is based on magic and seems to have been there forever Unfortunately it’s just not gripping Nonetheless the book was nominated for the Gaylactic Spectrum Award and like its predecessor it won the Lambda Literary AwardCome visit my blog for the full review

    Kindle Edition ¹ The Ordinary PDF/EPUB æ ordinary epub, The Ordinary MOBIThis was a 4 maybe even star book right up until the last section when I did not get the resolution I expected from the story Liked the start and the twist away from initial expectation really wanted to know about the mysterious woman and I expected when I didn't that this must be a series Unfortunately the author's note made it clear there is a seuel planned More books in this world maybe but not a direct continuation of this story and I'd have liked of Jedda and Malin

    Kindle Edition ¹ The Ordinary PDF/EPUB æ ordinary epub, The Ordinary MOBIMy library classifies The Ordinary as science fiction I call it fantasy The back cover says it is a powerful and entrancing tale of magic science and the mysterious truth that binds them together so i guess that's somewhere in between The author Jim Grimsley also calls it science fiction even though it shares the same world with his early fantasy novel Kirith Kirin though it is not a seuel to that novel He sa

    Kindle Edition ¹ The Ordinary PDF/EPUB æ ordinary epub, The Ordinary MOBII loved almost all of this book The first two parts had it all a fascinating well built world an interesting magic system great characters compelling and lyrical writing juicy description that wasn't overdone and a rich soup of thoughts about religion magic and science The third part was much shorter and abandoned the main character but it was still intertwined and it fleshed out two other major characters in ways the reader couldn't have gotten otherwise so it was a valuable part of the story too Then there was the fourth part the ending if ending it was as there was really no resolution and the conflict that the second part of the book seemed like it had been building toward happened completely off page It felt completely rushed After a bit I flipped back to the start of that section thinking maybe I had missed something no it just wasn't there I reall

    Kindle Edition ¹ The Ordinary PDF/EPUB æ ordinary epub, The Ordinary MOBIThere were times when I was reading this book about two worlds where I was terrified it would end I loved the very most the part where the manner of magic in the fantastical world is explained as a form of singing that recreates well I won't tell it all I found I couldn't breathe I was so interested The world building is the finest part and the fact that one civilization has just encountered another that was there all along this is on the first chapter and that other civilization has an entirely antipodal world view and mode of existence this is the richest dimension of the the book the contrast and later the challenge of that contrast I found it a most elegant and elegantly written fantasy sci fi and I want to read it againGrimsley is also a very fine novelist in the realistic department MY DROWNING is a practically perfect book What is similar between the two is that his works always pose a thrilling uestion and then make you wait a long time to find

    Kindle Edition ¹ The Ordinary PDF/EPUB æ ordinary epub, The Ordinary MOBII picked this book up from the library because it had a very interesting premise There is one world that is very science oriented logical over populated and high tech There is another world that is flat plentiful and where magic is a proven reality And suddenly there is a gate between the two Ta
