    One thought on “Staying Power”

    1. This is a third book in the Darshian tales and it mainly focuses on Karik's adventures as part of the expedition to Adon. It is just as delightfully written as first two books in these series, and it explores complex social issues and has lovely romance in it.Having said all this, I have to admit that this is my least favorite book in these series and it just may be my least favorite book of all books ever written by this writer. I have not read all she wrote yet, but I am getting close. What ca [...]

    2. Gripping as usual, but can be frustrating and boring at times. It's not as satisfying as its predecessors, especially book one which is reread material and my most favorite of this series so far. While I love road trip and the survival test part, I don't like :1. The painful part (although it's paramount for the plot) 2. The romance part (no chemistry, no UST, more telling than showing) 3. The characters (Romi and Soza, they're enemies though. I dislike Romi and hate Soza)4. The misunderstanding [...]

    3. This is the third book in the Darshian Tales and finally the focus shifts from Arman and Kei to Karik and his background, as well as his personal and professional future. We get introduced to Andon and its beauties, as well as the protagonist of the fourth Darshian tale. As always there are explorations of self-worth, prejudice, fatherhood, love, knowledge, discipline, war, perseverance in the face of inner and outer catastrophe - there's even enemies-to-lovers and you can follow both protagonis [...]

    4. There's a part here that left me cold and triggered ugly word I know but that part was just too much I hope this is enough warning to atleast be ready for what you might read. Also, note that I don't want to stop anyone from reading this because this was really enjoyable, except that certain part. But if you can get past it, which I did by skipping three chapters and forcing myself to be calm and sleep, the story was as impressive as the first two. Another thing is that, I didn't feel like the s [...]

    5. Well doneReally falling in love with everyone. The trauma research for the story was on point so glad you took the time to really make those scenarios as real as possible

    6. This is my favorite book in the series so far. After following Karik through his teenage turmoil, it was so rewarding to watch him come into his own in this book as a man, scientist, and lover. Romi is possibly my favorite character in all of these books. The banter and chemistry between these two is simply amazing. The best love is born out of respect, not infatuation, and respect is definitely the basis for this couple.The only downside to this book is that Arman and Kei take a secondary role. [...]

    7. the evolution of the relationship between Karikband Romi reminds me very much of that between Arman and Kei, without the captor/captive element. I found a few aspects of the story troubling, though not wholly unexpected given the development of the characters involved. I sometimes find the widening landscape of this series troubling, but i think that's just myself having some issues picturing the map of the world in my head.I do love that Somerville has kept the original characters in play throu [...]

    8. I loved Karik having his own full story, and this was the perfect way to go with it. Karik definitely needed his own adventure! As I mentioned in my review of book one, the romance is a very tiny portion of the book, so if you're looking for an epic romantic fantasy, this one isn't it. But it is an epic fantasy for sure, and the world building never ceases to amaze me.

    9. I loved seeing Karik find his partner after all he went through as a young man, and Romi was a great character as well. Several events made me want to cry and I thoroughly enjoyed reading about familiar characters again.

    10. The author seems capable of only writing 2 kinds of characters: the nasty ones (think Umbridge types) and the self-flagellating ones ("if only I had" and "it's all my fault" went on for pages!).

    11. I've started this, but then I hit an emotional funk So I'll come back to this when I'm in a better mood because I want to enjoy this book to the fullest!
