L of elders No one talks about the dreamers the undesirables ostracized from societyBut the web of protection Eliana has woven around herself begins to unravel when a young girl is found lying unconscious in a pool of blood on the stones outside the house Robbed of speech by her attackers the only clue to her identity is one word tattooed in invisible ink across her palm Eliana Why does this mysterious girl bear her name What links her to the weaver and how can she hold Eliana’s f 35 starsI m so happy that I gave this book a chanceIt s a Finnish fantasydystopian novel about an island slowly sinking into the sea and features a beautifully understated romance between two girls each carrying their own secrets and burdensI don t want to say too much about the plot and the characters at this point because I don t want to give away too much information it s best if you go and discover it by yourselfThe atmosphere that It ranta paints is dreamy and at times eerie The writing is beautiful and there are some truly stunning uotes the prose is rich and full of vivid imageryHowever there is also a downside to this I have to admit that I struggled uite a bit at the beginning the author doesn t do much explaining at start and you have to put together little pieces of information about world building and the characters as you read on Everything in this book feels dreamlike but that is not always good To me it was hard to get a good sense of the world and the characters because of the vagueness of the writing so it took me about 120 pages before I could actually enjoy the story and have a better idea about what s going on Other than that I LOVED the imagery that the book left in my mind all the sea green hues scent of brine and sea salty breeze empty halls gauzy webs floating in the wind the drowned streets of a doomed city and best of all the uiet sweet relationship that blooms between our narrator and a mute girl that one day appears at the templeI adore the world that the author created and the dreamy feeling that persists throughout the novelSo all in all it was a beautiful lyrical read but I had some issues with the sometimes too flowery prose and it took me really long to get into the storyWould I recommend it Well that dependsREAD IF you like to get lost in dreamy fantasy worlds you don t mind a slow read you re looking for something fresh and original you like a slow burn understated romanceDON T READ IF you are looking for a fast paced adventure this one is uite the opposite you dislike purple prose you need the world building and the characters to be well defined and have a strong sense of what is going on
