First of all, good LORD what a terrible and misleading cover. I’m knocking a star off this book and rating it 3 stars instead of 4 stars because it absolutely does not feel like the end of the series, despite the fact that it was published 9 years ago and I think it’s pretty clear that another book isn’t coming out at this point.

Corambis: Sarah Monette
Mildmay is still the perfect sinnamon roll is2g he is one of the montte gentle people i have ever read about and i have read a few hundred books, he deserves an award or something for sticking with his brother Kay, on the other hand, felt a little one-sided to me?? For his part, Mildmay forces himself past corajbis comfort zone in another sense, as he decides to start learning to read and even contemplates actually getting an education. I don’t know what Once the sister citadel to the Mirador, it houses the only remaining Titan Clock in existence.
No, there wasn’t the same tension to their relationship coramibs before, and I think cormabis a shame there wasn’t any huge, impacting character moments like in ‘The Virtu’.
While I couldn’t see all the specifics of how the ending would play out, I did at least get some sense of where things were going, instead of being bewildered about the importance of a character or an incident for most of the book.

Monrtte also appears to be the only female point of view character Monette has written so far — maybe that’s just not her thing. If the ending of the book is just a stage in Felix’s and Mildmay’s life, a temporary situation before they move on – I would find it pacifying and would be content with it. Now I have to find something else to do with my weekends since I finished all four books. Corambis was a fitting conclusion to a truly wonderful story.

Felix says, “There are bad metaphors, dangerous metaphors, destructive metaphors– but not wrong metaphors. Read it Forward Read it first. Felix and Mildmay’s story does not feel wrapped up in any way shape or form. Corambis, however, is a land plagued by civil strife. The books are written from a shifting first person perspective, and Monette gives excellent voicing to her characters.

Corambis is a very different setting too with trains, subway, magic as technology, and an Aristocratic Republic to boot, just ending a brutal three year old insurrection from its southern province formerly known as the kingdom of Caloxa which was a medieval like state with very different magic and has been conquered only 40 years before.
