    Kindle songuarachando.co.uk ó The Gilda Stories eBook ☆ The Gilda ePUB » gilda ebok, stories kindle, The Gilda kindle, The Gilda Stories EpubA remarkable book I generally don't like vampire books for many many reasons one of which is that the common trope of 'oh no I am forced to be an exploitative predator my trauma' makes me want to punch MCs in the fictional face This is different Gilda as she becomes starts off as an escaped slave a little girl who's fled the cotton fields now her mother has died leaving her family She's taken in by a vampire who turns her with consent and care and who teaches her the first lesson you leave something of value in exchange for blood So she uses psychic vampire powers to identify problems and help open horizons give self worth repair memories It may not be a voluntary exchange of which she's aware but it is still a form of payment and valuable because demanding something for nothing and hurting people are in fact wrong That's at the core of the story Gilda moves t

    Kindle songuarachando.co.uk ó The Gilda Stories eBook ☆ The Gilda ePUB » gilda ebok, stories kindle, The Gilda kindle, The Gilda Stories EpubAs I enthusiastically told friends I was reading and immensely enjoying this cycle of lesbian vampire stories I would get vaguely patronizing smiles in response–I guess anything vampire related gets that reaction these days–forcing me to trumpet all the Gomez’s dazzling ability to intricately braid together the stuff of history race desire time and immortality into a series of narratives that are not only compulsively entertaining to read but poignant and thought provoking as well While there was admittedly a slight sense of diminishing returns as Gilda’s life narrative progressed over its 200 year trajectory the central character of Gilda herself–fundamentally invariable as the distinctive contexts around her change like so many grade school dioramas–remains ceaselessly rivetingCapsule review from the post My Year of Reading ueerly over at my blog
