First thing that I noticed about this book was it s cover It is so beautiful and I had to read what was the story behind this cover I am glad that I did not let the average rating of 396 deter me because the story behind this cover was eually beautiful and mesmerizing Moon is an outcast trying to hide his true identity He is different and ever since he realized that he was trying to find people like him but failing miserably at his attempt One day the people with whom he was living came to know what he and they poisoned him Somehow he managed to escape only to meet someone like him who took him in and thus began a journey into a world which truly amazingI loved this story from the PoV of an outcast who has to show that he was loyal to his own kind It didn t help that Indigo Cloud the colony he wanted to be a part of was going through some serious tough times but also was Matriarchal and he was brought in to be a consort to the younger ueen while there was an older ueen who was not yet ready to give up her throne At every step Moon was doubted and tested but these hurdles only made Moon stronger and confident of himselfThe world building of this story is simply awesome I haven t encountered anything like this before and this is so original to me Different races and how they rule and work to keep themselves in existence was explained in detail which only added to the sheer beauty of this storyI was pleasantly surprised by this book because in less than 300 pages it gave me something that I haven t read before Highly recommended

Summary The Cloud RoadsThe Cloud Roads

The Cloud Roads Summary Ç eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ip the balance of power that his extraordinary lineage is crucial to the colony's survival and that his people face extinction at the hands of the dreaded Fell Now Moon must overcome a lifetime of conditioning in order to save and himself and his newfound k. Final rating 55 stars He spoke the thought that had become increasingly obvious all day long with every interaction he had had I don t belong here Stone made a derisive noise You re afraid you don t belong here There s a difference This book is the prime example of how to do world building If there is something exceptionally strong in this book it s completely alien high fantasy world building where there are almost no humans barely normal Earth like humans at all The closest thing to humans are so called groundlings and there are than 10 species of them and only a few look similar to human due to coloring of their skin and their build but most of them have horns shells and so on and on The closest thing to humans are the shapeshifters called Raksura who in their groundling form look like how normal human we are used to should look like and in shifted they look like dragon humanoid But their race and race of their enemies the Fell is so strongly done with different ways customs and setting especially social norms This is high fantasy with setting including courts ueens and consorts rulers and minions flying islands dragon like creatures flying ships and boats and uniue flora and fauna that this world resembles barely the world of humans The flyer as well as groundling species are usually different from the common which is what I loved Then again details on the world building later in my review There is also this thing in this book called reversed gender roles Females here are very strong badass hold everyone in check and are terror in the sky Yes being the ueen is almost next to terrifying Not to mention female warriors when they get together heads roll So girl power here but men kick ass as well But social norms especially in the later books tell you that male side of the nobility of their race should be shy timid avoiding fights and women strong competitive ready to rip the heads of their enemies shoulders dominant in relationships and as for ueens no one should anger them at all ever So basically females on the highest position and matriarchal regiment nice Also the ueens of the Raksura race being the strongest most powerful and most deadly of them all Once again nice Their female warriors are not to be underestimated as well There is also this thing of bisexuality Their whole race is bisexual as learned in other two books There are 3 conditions for me to love the story World building when it comes to fantasy or sci fi Characters and my ability to feel something for them and their perils Story that is captivating and doesn t let go nevermind if it had been seen beforeSometimes I give 5 stars to the books that don t have the good world building but have amazing characters and story Or have lack of world building and story but have highly developed characters that in the end I didn t even care for world building and story just for them This book has all three conditions Wonderful imaginative world building and very uniue with different cultures races sometimes settlements from humans It was all explained in stages and uite believable and it s not hard to understand which role is which in which species The world building is maybe the strongest point of this book Also flying islands and flying boats Literal yellow sea How cool is that The book is told from 1 point of view in third person our very very distrustful and guarded protagonist Moon who doesn t know what he is All he knows is that he is shapeshifter and that his previous attempts to find his people ended up traumatic to the point he gave up on them And I felt so much for him and everything that happened to him And despite being in only 1 POV it was well done and everything was balanced Story was captivating in every chapter something happens and it s fast paced And also bonus clear sentences and understandable writing I was surprised at how much details I remembered while reading and I could easily repeat the whole book including the details to someone who wants to listen but can t read English yeah this I do I didn t really and honestly know what to expect of this book So I read the short story The Forest Boy a preuel that was about the protagonist Moon a shapeshifter when he was just a fledgling a child in other words who tried to find somewhere to stay and had very hard time trying to control his shifting But this short story was told from the POV of one orphan and his sister who found him captured in a trap bleeding and very very afraid Now when you read it like this you can notice biiiiiiiiig changes between his feelingsbehavior early on and now But there is a reason for that very unpleasant and now Moon seems a bit distant guarded distrustful and wary But inside he is still that kid trying to find a place to belong where he could be safe and accepted And he DOES have feelings Moon was very interesting character for me If I could describe him in one word it would be survivor and not just that There is so much about him and I love him to bits especially after reading everything that is out in Raksura series as of the beginning of 2016I read this book in 2 days I just saw the plot saw it was about shapeshifters unlike the usual ones I read about and said I must own it I don t succumb easily to ongoing series and this has 3 books so far and 2 upcoming and 2 omnibuses of short stories but I just HAD to read it it was calling out to me and I had to drop everything I read and just read this without stopping I did not regret my decision even once But there are short story omnibuses as well Stories of the Raksura Volume 1 Stories of the Raksura Volume 2They contain 9 short stories 4 preuels and 5 seuels between book 3 and 4 I highly recommend reading these novellas BUT AFTER READING FIRST THREE BOOKS For info on them and their order of reading check out my review for Vol 1 STORYMoon is a shapeshifter but he doesn t know what he is He changes into dragon like humanoid with black scales wings and claws When he was just a fledgling his family was killed and he was the only survivor His mother 3 brothers and sister gone And through his 35 turns years since their deaths he never found out what he was and had to adjust to this scary world aloneThrough the years he stayed with groundlings trying to make a home for himself But he knew it would never last forever Every time he was discovered he was chased out or almost killed Ironically this happens whenever groundlings see his other shifter form His humanoid black scaled and winged form strongly resembles the most vicious predators on their planet the Fell But despite the hints he knows he is not one of the Fell But explaining that to ignorant groundlings is another matter completely He got used to being kicked out or worse for being what he is but he could never stand loneliness and therefore sought company no matter what the cost In the latest settlement in the village of Cordans where he was staying for a long while the rumors about seeing the Fell in vicinity started circulating As soon as the rumors started he was discovered by the woman he was in relationship with Not knowing that his cover has been blown he didn t notice anything strange until they drugged him with the poison that can apparently incapacitate the Fell which made him unable to shift and trapped him into something between of his forms and tied him up to be ripped apart and eaten by the other creatures of course they didn t believe him that he is not actually Fell and definitely not the thing they saw if that was even a Fell Just when one of the beasts prepared to kill him the rud Fell flyer killed the beast kidnapped Moon and flew away with him Moon out of his mind due to terror that he was most likely going to be eaten by this shifter thrice his size isn t really ready to cooperate When he calms down he is told by the flyer called Stone from the Indigo Cloud Court of Raksura race that he is shapeshifter being called Raksura just like Stone He then asks Moon to join him in his travel to other court to search for the warrior type of their race because the Fell target Indigo Cloud Court and there is not enough of them to protect it And Stone didn t really say everything And Moon isn t ready to believe everything Stone says WORLD BUILDINGIn the Three Worlds called for the three realms sea earth and sky there is a vast number of species More than 10 groundling races and several flight races of which Raksura and the Fell are most important Although Raksura come from earth For decades the migratory view
