Rank these three traits in the order you personally value1/10/2021, 5:07:48 PM
Rank these three traits in the order you personally value them: Compassion, Loyalty, Honesty. 👉🏼Me: Loyalty (the people of my heart come first no matter what), Compassion (a little kindness can make big changes), Honesty (more honor, less regret). . I thought a lot about these three traits while reading “Onyx and Ivory” but is it weird that within this whole story the one thing that stood out to me the most was “Seerah” or, “the holy silence”. I’m not sure why it struck me so hard in this particular story, but it did. Making a vow and having a deep commitment to keeping something important a secret, no matter the cost or harm that could come to you in someone else’s effort to obtain it. I value loyalty and honor like that so much and I loved the idea of “holy silence” and all that it means. . I attempted to read “Onyx and Ivory” a couple months ago when I received it in my @litjoycrate , but I just wasn’t in the mood for it then. I finally listened to it on audio and found that this time around I was enjoyed it. Readers get to read from the perspective of Prince Corwin and (Traitor) Kate Brighton in alternating chapters as we follow Corwin through his trial against his brother to see who will become king, as a rebellion and dark magic threaten the kingdom. There is a lot going on in this story (which I liked) and as it continues, the scale of the plot grows and becomes more interesting and exciting. . I’ll be honest that I wasn’t totally on board with the main romance in this story. haha. So many issues that I won’t spell out because they are spoilers. But I’m just waiting for that book that swerves left on a romance instead of going the obvious route. (Am I the only one who always wants this? Haha) 🤷🏻♀️ But I did enjoy the magic in this story and all the themes of acceptance and discrimination that would make for good book club talking points.
