Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

There is a rule amongst his kind: A jester doesn’t lie.

In the kingdom of Whimtany, Poet is renowned. He’s young and pretty, a lover of men and women. He performs for the court, kisses like a scoundrel, and mocks with a silver tongue.

Yet allow him this: It’s only the most cunning, most manipulative soul who can play the fool. For Poet guards a secret. One the Crown would shackle him for. One that he’ll risk everything to protect.

Alas, it will take more than clever words to deceive Princess Briar. Convinced that he’s juggling lies as well as verse, this righteous nuisance of a girl is determined to expose him.

But not all falsehoods are fiendish. Poet’s secret is delicate, binding the jester to the princess in an unlikely alliance—and kindling a breathless attraction, as alluring as it is forbidden.

*First book in a duology: same universe, different couple. Can be read as a standalone or with DARE.*

*Mature YA: sexual content and language. Intended for readers 17 and older.*

5.0 su 5 stelle This Book Breaks you Apart and Puts you Back Together 24 gennaio 2016
Di Elizabeth Mathis - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Quick Reasons: life ruiner; diverse read; the prose is poetic and gorgeous; endearing, adorable, snarky characters; this read tackles a heavy-handed, emotional subject with sensitivity and care; realistic romance, very human situations/reactions; this book breaks you apart and puts you back together again a different reader

2016, you are slaying me with the reads this year. The husband told me just this morning I need to step away from the emotional for a bit—read something with less bite. I laughed at him, because that’s just silly—the best books are those with teeth, right? And this read? Serious teeth. I’ll be bearing the scars with pride for a while to come.

---One revolution: my read crown of braids and his tousled brown bangs.

Two: my ruby belt and his ribboned bracelets.

Three: dexterity and tension.

Four: a coil wound tight.---

The prose for this is absolutely gorgeous. I love that it fits with the time period, that it’s well-researched, that Poet’s sections are (as they should be) the most poetic and beautiful of the two perspectives. I love how clear and engaging the two voices are: they stand apart, yet meld together in a beautiful blend of opposites that works to both individualize the characters and bring them together all the same.

The world-building is also gorgeous, well-considered, and described so concisely I could see everything that was happening or being described. The fantasy elements blend in beautifully with the historically accurate period setting. Any questions the reader might come up with in one chapter are thoughtfully and decisively answered further on; every possible outcome is considered and woven like threads across a loom.

---I would concede: Sometimes the simplest words had the sharpest teeth.---

The characters are polar opposites…and yet so beautiful together. I know, I keep using that word—I’ll try to tamp down the gushing, but I swear, these characters leeched out of the pages and inked themselves across my heart. There’s no getting them out anytime soon—they’ll be there, lurking, for probably the rest of forever. Their stories—both separate and as a whole—clash and clang into a molten, smoldering pile of emotions that caught me up and dragged me along for the ride.

This book isn’t all angst and first-love butterflies, though, so take care: there are more heart-wrenching, emotionally-draining, heavy-handed subjects being tackled. There is a reason this read is rated for 17+, mature readers—and I don’t think that’s just due to the romance and language, though that’s a major part of it. This book will make you think. It will make you angry. It will make you rage, and hate the world, and question everything. I recommend not reading, if you’re not ready for such emotional upheaval. If you are ready: I promise, this read is so so worth it.

---Father used to say that change took time, but he was wrong. It did not take any time at all to change me. The glimpse of a famly. A beautiful tale. A child’s tears. A confession. A wound. An honest opinion. A friend’s betrayal. One parent’s death and another’s embrace. A touch—an instant slapping you with its light and jolting you back, shaken and blinking. Those quick moments were what changed people.

What took time was accepting the change.---

I really enjoyed stepping a bit out of my comfort zone and stepping into Natalia Jaster’s world of beauty for the first time. I already have another book by her waiting on my Kindle; I’ll hopefully be picking it up within the next month or so, because I can’t wait for her to break my heart and piece me back together again. I definitely suggest lovers of sordid, forbidden loves, royal angst, and poetic reads pick up this book. You’ll come out a different reader at the end of these pages; I recommend you take the leap and let this world break your fall!
5.0 su 5 stelle Natalia Jaster is one of the best storytellers that I have come across 29 novembre 2016

So I am just going to say it, Natalia Jaster is one of the best storytellers that I have come across. I don't just mean author, because she is a good author, no I mean storyteller. She reminds me of one of those people you listen to as a kid who is telling you this wonderful, almost magical tale that draws you in and doesn't easily let you go. The type of storyteller that makes anything seem possible, magical and seems without a doubt it could be true. She kinda gives the reader their childhood back, no matter what your age.

Trick was not at all what I was expecting but everything I was expecting. I read the synopsis so I thought I knew what this story was going to be about and how it would go but I was wrong. Also I've read Natalia's debut book Touch and knew that I should be expecting something wondrous. The writing was fantastic, the characters were rounded and the plot wonderful.

I don't want to give to much away but Trick has several messages one being that there is always a balance. Where there is light there is dark, where there is beauty there is ugliness, where there is kindness there is cruelty and it just keeps going on. Natalia forces are reader to look at all sides of the situations to not just ignore one part but to look at things as wholes. Natalia is a American author and when she also mentions a major problem/injustice in Trick and being American myself I can see how what Natalia means in Trick, I can see the parallel to the problems this country has with this certain subject.

Now enough with the heavy, Trick is still a love story, the kind of love story that a lot of people want. Two people who couldn't be more different while being very similar fall in love. The learn from each other, grow with each other, have passion towards each other (whether it be in a kiss or a fight) and they support and do things for each other. A relationship of equals when in society they are not. It's unconventional, frowned upon, hard work, at time frustrating but you can see how great they are together and how they could make the people around them better. They have a marvelously passionate love that's enough to make anyone jealous and to see how it ends you really should read this book. The Princess and the Jester are two characters who have surprised me, neither are what they seem at first look, both grow and changed and became more. Both are passionate about what they believe in and will try to do what's right.

Trick deals with social issues and injustices, has action and romance, trickery and cleverness, it is a magically written tale that you should not miss out on. I am looking forward to Natalia's newest book which I hear is about two of the four seasonal kingdoms that's in this tale.
5.0 su 5 stelle That book broke the tragic typical YA boyfriend mold by making me and others like me love a boy with a limp 12 marzo 2016
Di Ms Danielle - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Ms. Natalie Jaster.. My oh my, what a book. I have to say, I was already impressed with your first release, Touch. That book broke the tragic typical YA boyfriend mold by making me and others like me love a boy with a limp, spiky near white colored hair, who wasn't the most popular boy in school. His and Love's growth was realistic. The story had a bit of originality even with the forefront of Gods and Goddesses. You definitely made it your own. But what am I saying? This isn't about Touch. Oh no, this is about TRICK.

And boy, what a Trick indeed. To be completely honest, my expectations were not as high for this one. The premise and background just did not interest me but as an author, YOU did. I had to try it after having it burn into my skin every time I tried ignoring it in my "Recommended for you" list.

Poet is the Court Jester with a surprising little secret. Briar is the stiff princess that wasn't always so. Though it sounds like an odd match, their relationship building, little quips, conversations. Everything flowed nicely. I was there with Poet as he flitted around flirting from here to there, teasing the princess, at first, without much interest, but then hopelessly unable to stop it from growing into more. I was there with Briar as she was at first put off by his jabs, jokes, and debauchery, but unable to take her eyes or mind off him. Their relationship was intricately woven into something so real and beautiful. The characters were definitely a huge yes for me. Even little Eliot who loved hard and strong, maybe too quickly, but in his own way. He found a way into my heart too.

The world building did not fail to impress me. Ms. Jaster did a wonderful job again taking a very used idea (Kingdoms and Royalty) but then making it her very own. Women being able to rule without a king. Same sex couples ruling. Even the idea of the Kingdoms being called Seasons and having their own distinct characteristics made the story even more worth while. I liked the pacing. In my opinion, I wanted to know what was going on and how their world operated as I don't like reading a book feeling lost. I can't speak for everyone but it definitely was not information overload for myself.

I loved her parents. Briar's relationship with her mother impressed me and touched me. It was complicated because of a reason I will not divulge but their relationship truly showed the pain they both had to go through and the strengths they gained from the weight of it all. They were hesitant but in all of that withdrawn behavior, you could tell she loved her mother and her mother loved her. Her father wasn't there much but I loved him too and you'll see why if you read the book!

***SPOILER***If I had one thing I can say bothered me a TAD about this book was the scene where Poet kissed Eliot. It put me off because I hurt a little for Briar. In Touch, there was a scene where Andrew kissed the girl he was crushing on because Love had hurt him. It reminded me of the scene in this book. Briar said something that hurt Poet and he ran off and in sadness wanting to make it go away. Even Andrew and Poet both saying that if Love or Briar were not there, they would love their respective love interest. Those two scenes were too similar. I was hoping for one in this book where the tides could turn and Poet could instead be made jealous by some male fawning over Briar. I hurt for both female characters with these scenes because never did they betray their love interests by kissing someone else, or having feelings for someone else. Maybe it's the hopeless romantic in me, but it was off putting.

ALL IN ALL 5/5: This book deserves all the stars I have to give. It surpassed Touch by a milestone (Though Touch will always hold a special place in my heart). If I could request one more thing, Ms. Jaster. It would be horribly nice if you could write a sequel or a short little novella with a little continuation of their story and maybe a little progress in the goal they were trying to achieve or maybe even a baby! This book left me wanting more unfortunately but in a good way. I promise. READ THIS BOOK.
4.0 su 5 stelle Really enjoyable book! But I hoped it would be longer!! 10 aprile 2016

I really, really enjoyed reading through this book. It's a nice and different kind of book that take the concept of a princess breaking the rules of wanting to be friends or feel sympathy for simpletons while all the other royals still despise them. Although it's a common plot in such books, I feel like the view point of both main characters, the jester and the princess made the book interesting and gave the reader a view-point of what they both think about the people around them, but also an insight in their personality.

I would of given this a 5/5, but it has a few flaws here and there which are ok to accept, and then there is my complex of not being able to understand everything in the book as a foreinger reading this, but... I actually hoped that the end would be more satisfying.

SPOILER ALERT!!
After Poet got back to Autumn with Nicu, I hoped that the writer would tell us a little more about what in the end. We got a 3 year timeskip, but besides the people of Autumn finding it difficult to accept Nicu and Poet at first, then loving them now, I'd loved to hear another timeskip where it went maybe 5 or 10 years where we would see Poet become a king with Briar and how they would have a young, healthy child where Nicu would be the child's big brother and cherish her a lot, etc.

All in all though! - It was still a very nice read, I enjoyed the book, just hoped that it could be a tiny bit longer. I can't wait to see what Natalia's next title will be. It will be an instant buy from me :)

Wow! I just finished this wonderful novel and I'm feeling such a sense of loss at having to walk away from these characters and their wonderfully flawed and intensely human world. I have to admit that it took me awhile to get into this story and I think it is because the two main characters are not really likable in the beginning of the book, but I think that is done on purpose to show us that there is so much more to people than first impressions may show.

Oh, Poet...I think, nay, I know I you have become one of my favorite literary characters :). I laughed with you, cheered for you and cried with you. And, sweet Nicu...I fell head over heels for you!

I'm hoping the author has many, many more books to come in the future. I will buy them and immerse myself in her fantastical worlds without a second thought. I've already recommended this book to others like I did for Touch (which is also amazing if you haven't read it!). It was so hard for me to turn the last page and say goodbye to Briar, Poet, Nicu, Eliot and all the beautiful characters in this kingdom. If you are on the fence about this book, please take the chance and read it. I promise the only disappointment you'll feel is when the book is done and you have to say goodbye.
