This book gives new dimensions to the word UNDERWHELMINGThe cover is gorgeous but everything else about this book is just the biggest MEHThere was so much potential and it was soooo obviously wasted It was a contradictory mess with plotholes bigger than TransylvaniaMaybe because I am not so young any I probably would have enjoyed it at 13 but I just cannot buy into this tale 3 decades laterIt probably also did not help that the narrator had such a whiny and saccharine voice that it gave me a permanent toothacheAnd what is it with authors trying to sell their heroines as oh so very clever sensible and then making them painfully dumb and ignorant at every turn because they have no other idea how to move the plot forward SeriouslyThere is a deep and wide pool of selfish helpless imbecile heroines out there in fiction but the main character s Jena sister Tati takes the serious biscuit She is completely braindead makes me want to slap her all the way to Transylvania and back just to make her see the slightest tickle of sense And yet she was beyond hope really And all because of LUV as we are told Tati you are the eldest all your sisters especially your small sis of 5 years really needs your help support OH NOOOOOOOO I caaaaaaan t I am hopelessly in LUV But your father seems to be dying your mother has already been dead and your younger sisters truly depend on your love care OH NOOOOOOOO I don t care I am hopelessly in LUV But all your selfishness and your foolish acts actually endanger yourself your lover as well as your sisters and your whole family OH NOOOOOOOO I don t care I caaaaaaan t I am hopelessly in LUV You are starving yourself to death what must your sisters think feel with you perishing wasting in front of their eyes and the youngest one may I remind you of the fact that she is only 5 OH NOOOOOOOO I don t care I caaaaaaan t I am hopelessly in LUV But it would help your lover in his difficult uest to win you if you believed in him and actually stayed alive strong for him so that he can come for you at the end OOOOHHHH I am soooo much in LUV but NOT THAT MUCHAh well I guess it is all right then Let s move onJena the MC has some saving graces even though most of the time she also acts unbelievably dim witted and weak for someone who is supposed to be strong sensibleBut at least when she is told off by her younger sister Paula the only really clever sensible and interesting character of the whole story that she had selfishly abandoned her younger sisters she has the grace to be ashamed of herself tries to make amends It also irritated me how she tried to sort out everything on her own like the increasing bullying of their cousin s Cesar when it was clear that she is too weak to get anywhere she just gave up moping and groaning and waiting for others intervention It never ever occurred to her to collect all her sisters tell them about the problems find solutions together defy Cesar or even slap some sense into their obtuse older sister view spoiler Is it just me or was the frog who is just an enchanted man in disguise spending all the time in the girls bedroom watching them dress sleeping on the heroine s bed really creepy hide spoiler

Summary ð PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Juliet Marillier Free read Ë Wildwood Dancing ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB De um misterioso jovem de casaco preto faz nascer o amor numa das irmãs e subitamente Jena apercebe se ue tem de lutar para salvar aueles ue lhe são mais ueridos Acompanhada por Gogu Jena tem de enfrentar grandes perigos para preservar não só as pessoas ue ama como também a sua própria independência e a da família. In Wildwood Dancing Juliet Marillier introduces us to five sisters sixteen year old Tatiana the team mom fifteen year old Jenica the practical one thirteen year old Iulia the budding socialite twelve year old Paula the intellectual and five year old Stela who s cute They live in a castle deep in the forests of Transylvania sometime during the Renaissance They have little company except their father two loyal servants and occasional visits from their relatives But every full moon they follow a secret passage from their bedroom to a magical forest to join the faeries dance The fae are ruled by a mostly gracious but hot tempered ueen but even ueen Ileana must answer to the mysterious witch Draguta whom our five heroines have never seenThis routine has been going on for years resulting in many wonderful friendships between the girls and the benevolent wood people especially between Jena and her constant companion the frog Gogu with whom she has established a telepathic bond But this year change is on the wind and Jena our narrator does not like itFasten your seatbelts for what can only be described as Little Women meets A Midsummer Night s Dream in Transylvania SettingMarillier s lush descriptive prose draws you so deep into this beautiful spooky world that you can smell the mustiness of the secret passage hear the ferrymen s oars as they cross the enchanted lake and see the merry torchlight of the dancing lawn and the clear stars above You can tell from the concreteness of her descriptions that she has walked in these places or at least places very much like them This solidness makes the story which is like any good fairytale full of metamorphoses and plot twists seemed grounded when it could easily become far flung and flimsy in the hands of a less skilled writerThe Wildwood has many personalities Ileana s ueendom is like her generous but mercurial The sad dead patch of forest ruled by the Night People tells you almost everything you need to know about them Then there s the sisters castle Piscul Draculi which like Professor Kirke s house in The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe walks the fine line between cozy and creepy PlotThe sisters routine is disturbed first by the intrusion of the Night People on the Full Moon festivities Their leader the charismatic and sardonic Tadeusz has an uneasy peace with Ileana but she and her creatures are repulsed by the rumors of bloodshed hovering over him and his which they do nothing to dispelOne in Tadeusz group is a handsome melancholy young man who goes by the apt name of Sorrow who has never so much as opened his mouth during a Full Moon gathering Sorrow instantly becomes enad of the kind and beautiful Tatiana who much to the alarm of sensible Jena soon returns his affections Tati insists that Sorrow is not one of the Night People despite all appearances Jena is not convincedBack in the mortal world the girls father is far away in the last hope that warmer air will save him They are looked after by their kindly Uncle Nicholae fussy Aunt Bogdana and cousin Cezar who is becoming increasingly difficult Everyone knows Cezar has had an unpleasant youth when he was eight he witnessed his older brother drown and even now it seems his parents value dead Costi than him Now a young man he is prone to outbursts of rage and fears of the forest and is especially unkind to Jena They are uickly running out of money with no way to replenish it and winter is comingThis brings us back to the Wildwood Jena is sure the Night People will eventually start taking victims among the villagers She fears not only for the villagers but that hot tempered Cezar and his accomplices might retaliate catching her innocent faerie friends in the crossfire and probably doing little damage to the perpetrators It doesn t help that dark powerful Tadeusz himself is attracted to Jena and offers to help out While she refuses his offer he senses that she is both frightened of and fascinated by him and decides to help anyway But he tells her upfront that he will demand compensation for his kindness and she knows the price will be terrible In addition to all these problems which will affect many lives Jena grapples with one that at the moment seems very small though it turns out to be as big as any of the others her dear little frog her best friend since she was little Gogu has suddenly become moody and secretive Occasionally he says strange things about emotions that frogs usually don t have or facts that he particularly could not have knownSuffice that poor Jena has responsibilities riding on her than a fifteen year old should Who will help her Ileana and her husband Marin Draguta who has never shown herself at a Full Moon dance and may have no sympathy for a human Or Tadeusz who clearly acts upon his own ulterior motivesAs deaths including her uncle s begin piling up among both the villagers and the forest dwellers Jena s choice becomes very important indeedCharacters There s uite a bit of Lizzy Bennet and Jo March in Jena our protagonist Lively and a bit sarcastic she thinks she knows than her gentle romantic older sister and is the boss in the absence of parents She s smart enough to know that her frog Gogu must really be a man in an enchanted form but too oblivious to notice that he s in love with her I appreciated that she starts the book with frizzy hair and a flat chest and she ends the book with frizzy hair and a flat chest and plenty of men are still attracted to herOf the other four sisters Tati is the most developed Like Jane Bennet or Meg March she s the prettiest sister and the kindest She thinks the best of others even when she has every reason to be suspicious of them Her soft heart immediately gives itself to Sorrow a captive of the Night People When Sorrow is in danger Tati s empathetic bond with him begins to drain her to the point where people in the village think she s either starving herself or turning into a Night Person She has a close tight relationship with Jena and is a good influence on herThe younger girls are not as fleshed out but their personalities are still distinct and bounce off each other nicely Iulia is a Kitty Bennet or a less obnoxious Amy March she just wants a social life some pretty dresses and in time a handful of suitors Paula is an uptight little scholar who spends dance nights wrangling magical lore from wizards and mages but she s also the most level headed girl in the group who can take care of little Stela when the others are too busy being confused by boys Think Mary Bennet only useful and without the tone deaf singingStela is the only sister without an obvious Austen or Alcott analogue At five years old she doesn t have much personality except being a cute good tempered child who doesn t understand all the scary changes going on around her and clings to her adorable faerie friends for comfortGoguCosti is a swoon worthy male lead and not just for his aristocratic profile and beautiful emerald eyes As a frog he can be snide and funny or mysteriously sad As a man he s the soul of kindness loving Jena from afar even when she has lashed out at him out of fear He s uiet and gentle and takes nothing for granted He s a bigger man than his brother without ever raising a hand to him and it s implied that after the book ends he will become a respected leader in the community Not as dastardly clever as Eugenides The Thief The ueen of Attolia Howl Howl s Moving Castle or Vidanric Crown Duel Court Duel but just as romantic and strong He s earned his spot in my Heroic Heartthrob Hall of Fame Sorrow has also earned a spot in the HHHF even though he never speaks until the climax for his risking his life on a near suicidal uest to earn his sister s ransom from the Night People He redeems himself a thousand times over for any superficial resemblance he may bear to Edward Cullen Also he is not actually a vampire Yay Tadeusz is a perfect vampire proud secretive sultry cool headed and Machiavellian His wooing of Jena is portrayed exactly how it should be intriguing but never safe or good On the surface he can be flippant and selfish even sadistic but it is implied near the end by Draguta who would know that there s still a spark of good in him and that he actually loves Jena in his fashion Suffice that he works as either a pure villain or a tortured soul who yearns for goodness and light but is afraid to accept themCezar starts out an insecure boy in a desperate rage to prove himself a man and over the course of the novel it consumes him Draguta the witch of the wood is a laugh riot while at the same time being uite spooky More than anyone else she personifies the whimsy both light and dark that characterizes this novelContent Advisory for Teachers Librarians Parents and Sensitive Kids Violence Uncle Nicholae is felled by a crossbow bolt to the chest in a hunting accident He bleeds out on Cezar who in his daze of grief leaves a trail of blood dripping from his garments all over the houseWhen Tadeusz and his friends help Jena by mending the manor fence even though she told them it was unnecessary they compensate themselves by draining the blood from a village girl who does not survive the ordeal Her death is not shownThis motivates Cezar and the other men of the village to scour the woods for the Night People but Tadeusz and company are far too crafty for them But Cezar does manage to capture an innocent dwarf one of Ileana s folk who has nothing to do with the vampires tortures him ostensibly for information and murders him The death of the dwarf Anatolie is not shown but he was a friend of the sisters The Night People enjoy torturing those who wander into their realm uninvited When Tati and Jena foolishly accept Tadeusz invitation there they witness vampires forcing an exhausted man to dance and throwing sharp objects at a woman caught in a big bag like a cat A drunken Cezar hits Jena when she rejects his advances When sober he threatens her her sisters and their servants He tries to throttle Costi Sex Tadeusz is a sensual creature and though his interactions with Jena are chaste it is clear that he would like that to change eventually He runs a fingertip down her neck at one point causing Gogu to hop on himCezar gets drunk at a party and pins Jena against the wall forcing a kiss on her and attempting to molest her Disgusted she fights him off and he strikes her At this same party Iulia who s only thirteen but has the figure of an older girl shows up in a low cut gown hoping to look like a grown up Before Jena can loan her a shawl or scarf Cezar yells at Iulia humiliating her in front of everyone Costi is nearly naked when he is unexpectedly returned to his human form Sorrow and Tati exchange what Hobbes the tiger not the guy who wrote Leviathan would term muchas smoochies but given the time period and what good kids they are it s unlikely that they did anything Substance Abuse People drink at a party none of the main characters to the point of drunkenness save Cezar This story takes place long before age limits were extant or needed on alcohol Possible Religious Conflict Tadeusz says that crucifixes and garlic can t keep his kind out and the house of the girl they killed was said to be well protected However Jena never witnesses this for herself and Tadeusz may well have been bluffing Yet the Church isn t portrayed as useless here Father Sandu Paula s tutor who doesn t even have any lines is shown to be a wise gentle man He tutors a girl at a time when that was considered foolish at best and possibly subversive Cezar stupidly banishes him from the village after the vampire attack after which the situation gets steadily worse Language NoneConclusion Wildwood Dancing hooks you with its glorious prose makes you root for its characters and pulls you so deep in that when a familiar fairytale plot twist occurs you re just as shocked as the characters are The chapters are long and languidly paced but if you re like me you won t be able to put it downFinally I hope they never change the cover art for this one Kinuko Craft s painting isn t just gorgeous but it s full of details from the book that you won t notice until you ve read the whole thingYou might also like Chalice by Robin McKinley East by Edith Pattou The Books
