her ➽ SUMMARY💜 ff romance❤️ bisexual and lesbian MCs💜 enemies to lovers ❤️ slow burnIn Zulla you're either Mortal or Made Automae subdued Humans in the War of Kinds and now rule over them with a hard hand Ayla has lost everything in one of Automae's brutal raids Crier is the heir to the Sovereign who ordered this very raid Ayla craves revenge Crier must navigate the political games of her father and fiance What becomes of them after they cross their paths➽ WRITING STYLENina Varela has something raw in her writing She not only handles the exposition by differentiating what the particular character would pay attention to but also constructs her metaphors and other figures of speech based on their personalities and life experiences She structures her flashbacks in such a way they contrast with current events and causes them to evoke emotions She pulls you in with each word ➽ PLOT PACINGCrier's War is always high stakes always pulling you through ups and downs and always intense Various political intrigues manipulations and dreams of revolution mixed with a great dose of dramatic irony that leaves you frustrated but in a good way will pull you in and steal your mind for days and days after you finish it Every uiet moment is followed by a sudden clash and spin Every tread of information comes at a huge cost Every connection made leaves you anticipating answers And every decision is a battle of this sudden wish with duty and people's expectationsThere was a brief moment around 30 % in when I felt like things got too slow but it picked up not long afterLike in a Greek tragedy we're constantly anticipating the worst hoping for the best and getting both of those tied so closely together it's hard to distinguish any It fascinating and leaves you anticipating the next and next and next turn of events It's readying you for catharsis For the revolution of your heart➽ CHARACTERS Like she was than a human girl Like she was a summer storm made of flesh Ayla — Ayla was disappointed by the world too many times She is wrathful judgemental blunt and tends to keep people at distance but she has a fire inside her She is resilient despite everything she has experienced and she places her moral code above her own happiness but sometimes all the emotions she fights to push down erupt from her She's an active volcano Crier was beautiful Created to be beautiful but it was than that It was the way her eyes lit up with interest the way her fingers were always so careful almost reverent as she flipped the pages of a book Crier — Crier wishes to move up in the world of Automae politics She is an idealist she thinks if only she could make other Automae listen to her arguments she can fix the unjust system and still has some traces of naivety that lets people in her vicinity use it against her She is sharp though and often times she is able to use it to her advantage Crier is used to playing the long game She's patient and collected She slowly adjusts to the fast world of schemes and manipulations She's a Medusa's stone statue waking up from its slumber ➽ THE ROMANCE A thought came to her a story of its own one that only just began writing itself in her mind a story of two women one human one Made Their love — forbidden But forbidden not because it's ueer like in so many LGBT stories but because their Kinds share a history full of spilling each other's blood Because one is a princess promised to the man who murdered the other's familyAnd yet those born enemies get close And then closer All their constant 'I hate you but I can't get enough of you' and 'all the laws of the universe say it's impossible and wrong but we're just so fascinated by each other' is addicting They get to experience so many emotions — emotions which they are not used to as one is coping with her pain by not letting herself feel much but rage and the other was raised to rely solely on the reason — and they fight to keep them to themselves as to be anything but composed would be a weaknessCrier cannot show this weakness because that would impede her wish to climb Automae political ladder But Ayla — Ayla has spent a third of her life imagining getting her revenge on Hesod by killing his dear daughter The Resistance relies on that wish Her closed ones make their choices with this in mind How is she supposed to admit that she brought Hesod's anger on herself in a much much different way This story is full of yearning and denying it and feelings and trying to suish them It will make your heart beat faster and it will break it And then it will leave you begging for ➽ WHAT IT MEANS TO BE 'HUMAN'Crier's War explores what it means to be 'human' and where our humanity starts What is human and what is just close enough but not yet Is it our blood We are human because we are born one Or is it what we create Our capacity to dance sing make art is what sets us apart from other species Or is it all about our emotions and passion and care We are human because we laugh and cry and sometimes let ourselves be led by the heart not the mind Or maybe just maybe it is a choice we make every day➽ ON A FINAL NOTEAfter all this whole emotional rollercoaster I feel empty Drained Like somebody took away my precious drug My hearthstone A drop of water gleamed on Ayla's lower lip Strangely it made Crier want to drink 💜❤️💜 READ MY POETRY ABOUT

Impossible love between two girls one human one Made A love that could birth a revolutionAfter the War of Kinds ravaged the kingdom of Rabu the Automae Designed to be the playthings of royals took over the estates of their owners and bent the human race to their willNow Ayla a human servant rising the ranks at the House of. Nothing gladdens my heart than picking up an ardently anticipated new release with the stammering gaiety of stepping off the edge of a cliff in the tremulous faith that you’ll sprout wings halfway down and for all your expectations to be met the inexpressible sweetness of finding yourself hovering above the ground with rills of current flowing off the tips of your winged armsCrier’s War colored everything like the afterglow of a dream and for the space of a few hundred page turns there wasn’t room for anything else in my head“Fever and fervor” said Junn “There is very little difference in the end”In a world ruled by Automa humans still held out even under the crushing avalanche of the airless and deadly perfection of their oppressors but their freedom was but a ragged scrap of meat tossed to an adeuately obedient hound and it’ll come a day when they’ll become an expense beyond their valueWithin Ayla a human girl was an ocean’s worth of grief and rage and her need for revenge against the Automa who killed her family burned through her as though she were a candlewick Following a most strange encounter with Crier the kind daughter of the Automa king Hesod Ayla is offered a job as Crier’s handmaiden But where gladness should be or gratitude for Crier’s kindness or desperation to acknowledge the luminous thing that hung between them there could be naught but brutal vacancy Ayla could no forget that Crier was an Automa—representing everything Ayla abhorred—than an aching tooth She refuses to be played upon by Crier’s gentleness to be convinced by her words to give something up But she was like a mouse inching closer to a trap and it would spring the moment she got closer or moved to escape “Humanity is how you act my lady” said Jezen “Now how you were Made” Crier’s War is ambitiously structured as a ping ponging narrative beautifully contained and as taut as piano wire The result is a dynamic novel that remains solidly rooted in a propulsive suspenseful plot that builds towards a series of impeccably timed revelations as dazzling as the finale of a fireworks showIt isn't the most original setup for the first book of a fantasy series but the author wraps it up in a package so absorbing I was drawn on like a compass arrow The balance Varela strikes between introducing knowledge to the reader and moving at a brisk pace towards the next plot objective is very well executed but the stakes feel higher because the author crafts a full fledged fantasy realm worth getting lost in The novel opens with an intricately laid out timeline of the complex history between the Automa and the humans who created them which is as much about power as it is about autonomy The broad backdrop of political unrest is arresting with numerous heartrending moments that made my heart zing and slam itself around like a bee inside a jarFor me however the novel’s most remarkable wonderful aspect is Crier and Ayla’s relationship as wan and fragile as moth wings but still burning as fervently as a bonfire in the center of the story The manner with which the author braids their storylines into a knot of fevered desires covert betrayals and tentative romance is effortlessly captivating Two sides of the same coin Crier and Ayla are like chemicals thrown together in an alembic and their moments together were a rapturous escape from the bleaker political machinations swirling around them Ayla could no turn away from her goal to rid humankind from the Automa’s yoke than a compass needle could point south and Crier wanted nothing than to break free from the false perfection she’s been preserved in—always and forever the sovereign’s meek obedient daughter—and had borne her solitude stoically enough without realizing uite how lonely she was until she met Ayla and hope begun guttering like an overspent candle in her corruptly human chest The villains with Crier’s conniving and all too powerful betrothed being a particularly compelling example are also painted in broad strokes and I’m looking forward to what the author has in store for the seuelBut not every aspect of the novel works as well as it should The plot zips along so uickly which is great but it also creates the impression of a restless narrative that leads to over simplifications and some characters being reduced to a single trait The random flashbacks sometimes inhibit the flow as does Ayla’s best friend whose presence I often forgot about but which dominates some pivotal scenes that don’t land as convincingly as they shouldThat said everything I grumbled about above is nearly unnoticeable during the actual reading experience The author is so good at telling her story that I wasn’t bothered enough by those small uibbles to feel thrown off the novel And ultimately Crier’s War is a sturdy solid debut that lays the groundwork for very interesting future developmentsThis was a buddy read with Jami Jamishelves Dude I had so much fun☆ ko fi ★ blog ☆ twitter ★ tumblr ☆


Crier's WarThe Sovereign dreams of avenging the death of her family by killing the Sovereign’s daughter Lady Crier Crier who was Made to be beautiful to be flawless And to take over the work of her father Crier had been preparing to do just that to inherit her father’s rule over the land But that was before she was betrothed to S. This book was such a surprise I thought for sure it would mostly revolve around the sapphic romance but it didn’t This felt uniue especially because it flips the AI vs Human story and makes the AIs the ones in charge I wish the second book was out already because this duology is definitely one I would have binge read straight through
