[Summary] Arkadien brennt ↠ Kai Meyer
Ncering TABULA But as clear as this seems to be for the reader it still isn t for Rosa herself She doesn t want to discover the cruel facts about her past that she tried not to remember ever since these horrible things happened to her But she hasn t got any choice Evidences are brought to her that reveal not only who did bad things to her but also show her that a person seemed to have been involved in these things who she trusted before Can her feelings for the people she loves survive this awful breach of trustIn my opinion not only the characters in Arcadia Burns were once again shown in a very uniue and wonderful way but also the story once again made some very surprising changes I like how Kai Meyer tries and succeeds in leading the reader by the nose No character we meet in his books neither dead nor alive seems to be what we think they are Whereas I normally don t like that because I always want to have at least a few characters in book that I can rely on for sure this time I really enjoyed this development of the story as it underlines the atmosphere of a Mafia story very wellI cannot reveal any without telling you how the story ends especially as I haven t read Arcadia Falls yet and am not sure for myself how it will end But this book definitely is as much as worth a read as the first one TABULA name in the German version Ten Reasons Why You Should Read Arcadia Burns And the Rest of the Series Warning I may be slightly hysterical andor incoherent Possibly because I read the first two of this series in a row and am now thirsting for the thirdlike Edward Cullen for Bella Swan cackles1 The Protagonist Rosa Alcantara It s no secret that I love Rosa and I could honestly wax poetic about her She s not as annoying as other YA heroines and neither is she deeply good and special and wow Rosa you angel No Perhaps the best example of this occurs in Arcadia Burns itself when view spoilerVal taunts Rosa about not being able to let her die because she wants to show that she s different from the rest of her family etc Now the Tris Priors of the world would still drag Val along through this burning building despite the fact that Val was involved in their rape Rosa dumps her after that taunt thank you Rosa hide spoiler Took me a while to get into the second book of Kai Meyer s Arkadien but it was worth the wait Honestly this book is so much better then the first one And that one I already liked What I liked here is that there is so much adventure suspense and I feel like the relationship between Rosa and Alessandro is real Way better then in book 1 where I had problems to understand exactly how they fell in love with each otherPlus there are so many new uestions thrown in the air and I wanna know what is behind all of it Seriously the last pages where totally gripping Can t wait for book 3 now Another solid 35 stars in this seriesAgain some of the language when they people converse is stunted and I think it s a translated issue not a text issue I which the series has a different translator because I know everything he wants to say with contextual clues but sometimes the turned of phrase as so stagnant like trying to give a literal translation to a fable in a lost tongueHowever the story was explosive and threw us for so many damn loops I can t wait to see how this thing is going to conclude Arcadia was a well done seuel to Arcadia Awakens Following all the events that have been set into motion from the first novel we see Rosa and Alessandro try to navigate their way through being capi of their respective Mafia clans as well as members of an age old dynasty not to mention the fact that they re teenagers

Always worth a re read A great book I re read the first volume in the series the day before yesterday and finally got to read Arcadia Burns
Yesterday I Not MeanI did not mean read the whole thing in one sitting it ust one is very different from Arcadia Awakens The first uarter of the story is set in New York City I anticipated that I would not like this part very much since I really really enjoy Meyer s descriptions of Sicily and how he somehow perfectly captures the mediterranean vibe but I actually did I even would ve enjoyed it if Rosa had stayed in the Big Apple a little longer Additionally I was uite surprised when she was on her was back to Italy so soon especially after what happend with the New York Carnevares I would have expected her to call Alessandro and ask him to try and help Mattia The part of the story set in Sicily was fine It was not as thrilling as the New York part but it was definitely exciting enough However there are tons of open uestions and I find it hard to imagine that they will all be answered in the third bookThe characters were fine I like Alessandro and by now I even like Rosa I hate Val and Michele with a passion and I am or less indifferent when it comes to all of the others Except Iole I don t know what to think of her I find her very annoying but I don t exactly dislike her Maybe I ll know better after I ve read Arcadia FallsThe writing was very good Well of course otherwise I would not have been able to read it in one sitting I guess Let me ust mention that I read the book in GermanAll in all this is a great book It is not uite enough for 5 stars but it s close I m extremely excited to book three which I have already ordered I know it will be a while before it arrives and for some reason you can t get physical copies of the German books any which is super annoying I ll ust have to try to be patient So many new twists I simply loved this storyWhat I enjoyed about this book is the complicated plot When I say complicated
I mean you need to be paying attention cause of all the revelationsmean you need to be paying attention cause of all the revelations are spilled Rosa is stronger than ever asking uestions kicking butt and taking names later She has grown much since the last book finally fulfilling her destiny Each chapter Rosa learns and about her family history and what is really going on The fact that it is corrupt than a freaking novella had me at the edge of my seatThe love interest didn t sway from where I want it to be instead it gave me some peace Let me tell you that this book is filled with plenty of gasps an Well I m already a huge fan of this author and he managed to write yet another great bookI don t know what get me so hooked on this trilogy It s probably the great mix of urban fantasy the mafia a romantic lovestory the fights to death thrilling races and a complex storyline with lot of twists and great emotionsThe Arkadien trilogy is something really uniue and I can t wait to see where Kai Meyer leads us to in the 3rd installmentI m also in LOVE with the charactersCan t wait for the 3rd book Original posted at Belle of the Literati They make us forget that Arcadia isn t only about barbarism and bloodshed There s also something else Somethingbeautiful Kai Meyer Arcadia BurnsSigh I have mixed feelings about finishing reading this book Half of me and my Sicilian soul is sated for the time being and the other half is screaming in Sicilian rage that I have to wait probably another year until the final installment Curse you year long waits in between books Grrranyways The follow up novel to Arcadia Awakens did not slow down settle down or disappoint in any way shape or animal form wait what OK so if you have not read Arcadia Awakens I would suggest starting it immediately and come back or keep on reading and be aware of spoilers from the first book You ve been warnedThe plot lin. Following the brutal deaths of her sister and aunt Rosa Alcantara has become what she never thought possible the very rich and very powerful head of the Alcantara clan Saddled with this immense responsibility Rosa must now conduct all business matters legitimate and not while negotiating among the greedy bloodthirsty members of her own family Not to mention convincing everyone that her ,
E continues its snakelike twist through the double dealings and ancient secrets that are commonplace in Rosa and Alessandro s mafioso clans Can I say first I Patrick Leigh Fermor just love the name Alessandro It sounds so mysterious and sexy andust so Sicilian I can t get enough Anyways oh wait One digression The cover Love love a million times love It flows graphically similar to the first book and I ust love this It is so hardcore and sassy Ok now I m done Rosa finds herself in many a crazy situation as she tries to uncover what
exactly happened tohappened to that awful night a year and a half ago while also trying to wade the very treacherous waters that is her own flesh and blood Alessandro is doing the same to keep his clan under control and be respected as their new capo I absolutely loved the advancement in Rosa s characterization Awakens finds her an emotional wreck and not always sure of her own feelings and choices Arcadia Burns she is still uncertain but there is also a determination in her that wills her to make difficulty choices and also live with the conseuences I felt like cheering for her every time she came into her own and demanded that things be done her way She really developed as a character and as
A Woman And Herwoman and her charge attitude was amazing to see Maybe it is the Sicilian rage that I know I have hibernating beneath my skin but seeing her go all Mafia badass with her guns and no mercy made me proud I know it sounds weird but when it is your family that has been wronged or the person you re in love with that would send me into a blind rage any day of the weekjust sayin Alessandro was similar He took command of his decisions and behind the scenes made some decisions that would not be popular by popular vote but he does what he has to do The description of the landscape was just as beautiful this time around and i as beautiful this time around and I in love with reading this book The plot changes were incredible Things occurred that I would have never seen coming and am still in shock over The constant shifting of trust and alliances has you guessing at every turn of the page and I couldn t flip them fast enough Rosa and Alessandro s relationship development was a guilty pleasure of mine It is so nice to read about characters that trust each other because they feel it is right and do not listen to outside variables They grew to need each other and not in a co dependent and nauseating way Refreshing It felt like a mature relationship development rather than an immature declaration of naive teenagersThe theme of loyalty is still very present and persistent I loved seeing this explored and develop even further during this book I also love the discussion of right vs wrong Clearly these people all play their part in organized crime but Rosa and Alessandro seem so different about it They do what they have to do based on their own moral code no matter who the wrongdoing person is They do what is right based on morality not blind mafioso tradition This was so interesting and such a different look on what objectively would solely crime and illegal activitiesI cannot WAIT to see where the final book takes us and what secrets will be revealed Ugh I m so sad I have to wait another year It s ok I will drown my sorrows in many books that I want to readsigh I usually get disappointed in second books of a trilogy very easily as almost ever seem to build a bridge between the beginning and the ending of the story but never contains any interesting plot development in itself Luckily and surprisingly Arcadia Burns wasn t anything like that The story beings or less a few weeks after the ending of Arcadia Awakens and sets up a high speed for the ongoing telling of the storyImportant developments of the story are revealed and Rosa clearly has to face her past before she can go on leading her family into the uprising troubles co. Lossoming relationship with enemy Alessandro Carnevare won't put the family business in dangerBut loving Alessandro comes at a price As Rosa continues to fall for him she discovers the dark secrets of his family's dealings and how they intersect with her own painful past She wants to believe she can trust Alessandro but they're so different Alcantara and Carnevare snake and panther How ,
