    One thought on “Belladonna”

    1. This book is all about discovering your strengths and who you are and who you are meant to be. Belladonna has always known she is the only one who can take on the Eater of the World. She is the only Guide of the Heart and Landscaper with the power and the connection to Ephemera to take It out of the world and stop it from destroying the Light. She thought when the Eater destroyed the Landscapers school (in book 1--Sebastian) that she was the only Landscaper left holding Ephemera together, but wh [...]

    2. I liked this less than the first book. My main complaint is that the Eater of the World hardly seems a worthy world menace. It may also be that Gloriana/Belladonna and Michael are less empathetic main characters than Sebastian. The whole book felt a bit too cozy and family-type (wholesome?) than one would expect from the premise. The one part where it turns dark is over fairly quickly.

    3. Para quem não sabe, “Belladonna” é o segundo volume que compõe a trilogia Efémera. Depois de ler “Sebastian”, Anne Bishop não desilude. Dei por mim a dizer novamente “Adoro ler fantasia” e só por isso já valeu a pena! A capacidade de certos autores de transmitir a realidade através de um mundo diferente, irreal, é algo que admiro de uma maneira única.Também há outro motivo que automaticamente me faz apreciar a leitura desta obra: o facto de se desenrolar em torno do que [...]

    4. Belladonna é a continuação e conclusão da história iniciada em Sebastian. Voltamos a encontrar mais um dos mundos originais inventado por Anne Bishop, desta vez um composto por diferentes paisagens, ligadas entre elas por pontes, que são mantidas em equilíbrio por Paisagistas e que respondem aos seus desejos e emoções.Estava com bastante expectativa em relação a este livro, em especial porque a sua protagonista tinha sido uma das minhas personagens preferidas do livro anterior e tinha [...]

    5. Althogh the story started slow (in the beginning of Sebastian book), it continued into a great story. Anne Bishop has this gift of wordplay, some phrases get stuck with you for a long time in a good way. It is true that all characters have a hard childhood, but that only helps in bilding a strong personality.

    6. I truly enjoyed Sebastian (Ephemera, Book 1), but forgot about this sequel since it came out a year after I finished book one. I finally picked it up and found it to be just as good, and I'm sorry I waited so long to read it. Though another book is expected, Bridge of Dreams in March 2012, this book provides enough closure that the series could end here (but I am glad it doesn't!).A few reviewers felt that Sebastian was more paranormal romance than fantasy. I disagreed. However, I do feel that t [...]

    7. Talvez esta não seja a opinião da maioria dos leitores mas devo confessar que, apesar de muito me ter agradado este segundo e último volume da duologia Efémera, Sebastian está muito melhor conseguido. Isto porque tive a perfeita sensação de que no primeiro volume a autora consegue criar e manter de forma mais eficaz o clima de mistério que nos mantém agarrados ao livro. Ainda assim, esta nova incursão a Efémera não desilude e o desenlace da narrativa deixa o leitor satisfeito.Os pers [...]

    8. Mais um livro que se pudesse dar o 0,5, daria 3,5. Desta vez a decisão pendeu para cimaO que mais gostei neste livro é o Mundo criado por Bishop. Gostei muito da ideia/conceito paisagens, como funcionam,.Penso que este é o seu ponto forte (pelo menos para mim) . os mundos que cria.No entanto, as personagens já não me cativam tanto. O "mau" - o devorador do mundo - que tem uma concepção que poderia causar muitos estragos e ser uma personagem realmente temível (porque a ideia está lá tod [...]

    9. Fast-paced page-turner. The storytelling quality is very compelling, a 5 out of 5. Anne Bishop is one of those rare story tellers who draws you away and run away with you that you forget the time. You forget to eat. She draws a reader in so deeply that you can feel and hear the vibration as the demon motorcycles go by World building is incredible, a 4.5 out of 5. I imagined that it would be difficult to convince readers to believe in a world of shifting geography. I scoffed when I first encounte [...]

    10. Cross over into a different World. Visit the Den of Iniquity and ride a demon cycle. Meet new and interesting people including your True Love. Learn about what you were born to be. This is Belladonna's World where she must fight The Eater of the World to save the people of the World. Live this journey with and through Michael. Take Belladonna's hand then you only need to take one step

    11. I don't know why this, along with Sebastian got such shoddy reviews from other Bishop readers. Okay, okay, okay it wasn't as in depth, rich, and vibrant as her Black Jewels Trilogy or the Tir Alainn trilogy! But was enjoyable and you have to admit she sucks you into the world of the characters quite quickly. I found these two books quick to read, sucked me in, and wondering what it would be like to be a Landscaper or a Bridge

    12. What can I say? I guess I'm a sucker for escapist cheese. It kept moving, I found many of the characters interesting, and I enjoyed it all. I was disappointed at how a couple of character threads were dropped, but in general, this lacked the usual Bishop flaw of the evil characters being eeeeeevil just because they don't have a nice bone in their bodies.

    13. I actually enjoyed the first book more. The story was a little flat for me, mainly because the story didn't seem to go anywhere. And I really like Ann Bishop, too so it makes me all the more sad.

    14. I'm not sure I want to read the next volume. I heard that Ephemera was Anne Bishop's least amazing book, but honestly it was dragging so much. I like Belladonna, I really do. She's tough, responsible and pretty girly at the same time. She has normal relationship with her sibling and cousin But the romance. OMG the romance was so sickeningly sweet. Honestly, I rolled eyes so many times, it almost hurt.I'm not sure if that was because of overly-flowery language or unnecessary fanfiction-like bante [...]

    15. I thought this book was heart-wrenching. To just find your heart's desire when you have to sacrifice yourself. This book shows the courage it takes to do that. I balled my eyes out when it happened. Then for your heart's desire stop at nothing to get you back. And succeeds. It shows the determination. I knew that Sebastian was important to Belladonna, but it's great how he was able to pay it forward. That made me cry my eyes out as well. I could definitely continue reading the Sebastian & Be [...]

    16. I enjoyed this book, and especially the parts where she added music into the plot. But the ending started good and then seemed a bit forced.

    17. This second book is as good as the first and makes you want to cry a little because you just can't get enough :)

    18. I jumped into this right after Sebastian because I was so intrigued to see how the events would play out and also cause I loved Glorianna's character and wanted to read about things from her perspective. The world is still amazing and Belladonna reveals a new splinter of Ephemera that was lost when the Guides tried to contain the Eater of the World the first time. We are introduced to two new characters from this world: Michael and Caitlin who both show an affinity to becoming Landscapers but ha [...]

    19. Not my normal review format. Pulling the LJ entry I made for this, long before I joined . Combined review of both "Sebastian" and "Belladonna".Interesting enough, I just finished a book, or rather series of two books that had water horses in it. Only they were demons who looked like horses. If you went for a ride on them, they would drag you into the closest body of water and hold you under till you drowned. Nice, huh? Can't say they were absolute "bad guys", cause these were books by Anne Bisho [...]

    20. This is simply not the best of Anne Bishop's books. The story line seems as though it needs more work to iron out the rough spots. As always, her writing style is fluid and beautiful to read, but the plodding plot of this novel strains even this attribute. *spoilers* Plot Problems: 1 - Is Lynnea pregnant or not? And why doesn't Sebastian seem to know? 2 - Belladonna, surrounded by family, just never felt lonely. Either she should have exhibited traits that were uncomfortable for her family, or t [...]

    21. I finished Belladonna, the second book of the Ephemera series today. I really enjoyed reading the book. There were a lot of great parts, fun parts, and the bad stuff was more distant then in the first book. Belladonna kept my interest throughout the book and the last half I had a hard time putting it down. I thoroughly enjoyed the interactions between the main characters (family & friends), such as Nadia, Sebastian, Lynnea, Yoshani, Teaser, Caitlan, Bridget. The main characters in this book [...]

    22. Quando acabei de ler o "Sebastian", o livro anterior a este, achei que tinha acabado de uma forma suficientemente boa para não necessitar de uma continuação (embora raramente alguém se queixe de ter Anne Bishop para ler), por isso acabei por adiar de certa forma a leitura deste, devido à minha falta de curiosidade. Mas passados alguns capítulos já estava envolvida na história novamente!Aquilo de que mais gostei neste livro foi o facto de podermos conhecer outras partes de Efémera, o mun [...]

    23. This book seems written more to satisfy the curiosity of what happens to Belladonna, to get a sense of her character. It seems odd thatAnne Bishop mentions Belladonna more in passing inSebastian.The more, however, I got to know her the more apathetic I felt about her fate. The closer I got to the end the more convinced I was that there would be another book about the over-all story, perhaps from yet another perspective. It just dragged on and on and onIt felt somewhat thrown together. I was repe [...]

    24. The book was fun. I wasn't as thrilled with it as I was with Sebastian but as a disclaimer that may have been that I had less time to devote to reading it then I did with Sebastian but nor did I feel as drawn to clear my schedule just to read as I did with Sebastian. It was a nice return to the character base that was established in the first book but I felt like the new characters were much more two dimensional then the ones that had been presented to us previously. I also found it personally g [...]

    25. Ephemra is a fascinating and original land where one must be very careful what they wish for. Highly recommend reading the first book in the series (Sebastian) for greater clarity. Many highly significant events are mentioned that occurred in that first book, plus it would offer more understanding into the character's relationships.Mostly one liners here:"It would snuff out the Light in each heart, and this place would change, would fester, and the people would curse and wail at a world turned h [...]

    26. Choć Belladonnę polubiłam najbardziej z rodzinki tak ta książka była pełna w sumie niczego. Niby ogromna miłość tworzyła się w tej części kiedy autorka opowiada nam, że wyszli gdzieś i tańczyli i się całowali. Tak jakby to było najmniej ważne gdzie po pierwszej części oraz opisie z tyłu książki rozumuję, że miłość i ten wątek powinien być w sumie najważniejszy. Większość co się między dwójką bohaterów dzieje wygląda jak flirt z czasów wiktoriańskich c [...]
