I have followed Sabrina Flynn‘s writing since her début novel. It simply does not do her justice to say that her writing has improved immensely. That she happens to throw in important issues as well, is frosting on A Bitter Draught. Humphrey glanced at the envelope again. Muttering under his breath about redheads and their … Continue reading Flynn, Sabrina; A Bitter Draught (Ravenwood Mysteries II) (2015)
California’s Silver Mistress greeted him with a lush, sensuous embrace. She was a late riser who generally left at noon, returning in the evening like a slow crashing wave rolling relentlessly towards the port. Her touch was cool and it settled around his bones. He had missed her caress. I have never been to San … Continue reading Flynn, Sabrina; From the Ashes (Ravenwood Detective Agency I) (2014)
Although The Broken God can be read alone, it is better to read A Thread in the Tangle and King’s Folly first. Some characters hit me harder than others. In The Broken God that was the boy Zoshi. There really isn’t anything unique about Zoshi. He’s just another “street-rat” among many others.

On occasion—a very rare occasion—one moment will brush against the next and a spark will flare to life that refuses to be extinguished. This is the moment, the spark, and this is how the end begins for a shattered realm—with a small nymphling who was cold.
Sabrina Flynn, A Thread in the Tangle

Although the ending was abrupt and clearly meant as a cliff-hanger, the dilemma of the story was resolved. “No, absolutely not,” Sotaen said shaking his head. “The nymphling is worth far too much. You’re nothing but a barbarian. How do I know you won’t sell her … Continue reading Flynn, Sabrina: A Thread in the Tangle (Legends of Fyrsta I) (2013)
Rape. Such an ugly and common act. Some have likened it to theft, others to a form of murder. Isiilde has become one rape-victim among many on Fyrsta. Having been one such statistic, I am aware of how little understanding the commonness of rape comforts the victim. Before anything comfort is able to reach your … Continue reading Flynn, S. (2014).
