    1. I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review3.8 starsThe thing about a series based on the Romanov sisters is that, despite all the elements that make it magical and that detach it from real life, you know how it ends and that it does not end well. Through The Waning Moon Duology, I've come to adore these sisters and it is hard to let them go.Likitalo's prose is gorgeous, suitably fitting not only the fantastical nature of the book but also the historical time period. She [...]


    2. The Sisters of the Crescent Empress is the second in a duology by Leena Likitalo that tells a mysterious, magical tale inspired by the Romanov sisters and their downfall. It’s a powerful debut series from Likitalo that tells me she’s a powerful emerging voice on the fantasy scene, but I was still left with mixed feelings about the way the duology wrapped itself up.The technical things that bothered me about the first book continued in the second, while much of the magic drifted into the back [...]


    3. Review on my blogReview of book 1 in the seriesI enjoyed this book almost till the end. The prose is beautiful and the relationships between the sisters are portrayed in a very realistic way. Some sisters get on better with each other, some not so much. Things that one does or says affect the relationships with the other sisters.It did have flaws that stopped me from really loving the book and most of them were understandable, considering the author has only written short-stories so far and I wo [...]


    4. 4* Bolo to komplexnejšie, lepšie podané s väčším množstvom mágiea to veľmi krátke. Mnohé veci jednoducho sú, a na malom priestore sa ťažko dajú podať striedmo a uváženejšie. Často sa zdalo, že niektoré prvky sú tam navyše, iba aby bolo.Ale ku koncu sa mnohé z toho pekne využilo.Odhliadnuc od mágie a istých dejových línií, ktoré sa už iba kvôli povahe tohto diela nevyriešili (haló, v realite sa tiež veľa vecí nevyrieši uspokojujúco. S týmto teda nemajme [...]


    5. Jacqueline Carey's cover blurb for The Five Daughters of the Moon calls the book "a lyrical elegy to the fall of an empire," and the book description is clear that this duology is inspired by the 1917 Russian revolution and the final days of the Romanov sisters, so you must know going in that this story doesn't have a happy ending. In alternating chapters told in first person from the perspective of each of the titular five daughters--ranging in age from six to twenty-two--Leena Likitalo brings [...]


    6. I didn't like this part as much as the first - mostly because the confinement experienced by the sisters was just too frustrating. Likitalo wove a powerful feeling of being trapped and helpless throughout the novel, and of course the sisters did try to change their fate (view spoiler)[(and succeeded to some extent) (hide spoiler)], but I just wish that they'd had more power to do something. I'm not super fond of imprisonment storylines, and of course this whole book was basically one.(view spoil [...]


    7. And what a bleak little series this turned out to be! It's beautifully told and beautifully written, evoking moonlight and darkness and raising questions about truth and trust and connections between sisters. The fantasy empire is based on Russia or China or something Eurasian; some of the reviewers say it's the story of the Romanovs. Anyway, the Empire is coming apart at the seams, and Celestia, the eldest of five sisters of the Imperial family, is supposed to become the next Crescent Empress. [...]


    8. wordnerdy/2017/11The second book in Likitalo's duology, a fantasy/alternate history inspired by the Romanovs, left me almost breathless! I loved the journeys of the five sisters (though Elise is more sympathetic and compelling in the first one) and the end had me going “oh whaaaaaaat” but like in a good way. I a, pretty sure this is the end of the story, and while I found the ending fitting, I would one hundred percent read more in this universe. And will definitely read more from this autho [...]


    9. Quite a heartbreaking conclusion to this story. The multiple viewpoints from the first book were continued in this one, and their occasionally odd syntax is very charming. The confined setting and character list is rich in detail. One consequence of hearing the story only from the perspective of the sisters: they all like each other, so their flaws are somewhat hidden from the reader. Its necessary to read between the lines to get the complete picture.


    10. Video review here: youtu/yRGlt6Iiwj0This deeply character-driven sequel to The Five Daughters of the Moon is where the story of the Waning Moon duology really finds its strength, as each of its five protagonists come into their own under the most trying of circumstances. (You can read my review of book one here.)InThe Sisters of the Crescent Empress, the Daughters of the Moon arrive at an isolated house in the far north of the empire where they are held prisoner, as their distrust of each other [...]


    11. WOW. This was an absolutely stunning conclusion. It had an incredibly lush setting. The writing was this mixture of luxurious detail and thrilling suspense. The characters were incredibly complex and their journeys were mesmerizing to read. And Likitalo continuously outdoes herself with plots that challenge our expectations. If you loved the first, or even liked it, you need to read this one. If you're at all interested in the Romanov sisters, this duology needs to be on your list. Disclaimer: I [...]



    12. Just as incredible as the first book! But with even more surprises & clever plot twists. Leena has managed to create five different narratives that were all so individual & unique that each sister was totally exceptional & noteworthy in their own right. The book was written eloquently throughout & the ending was beyond unpredictable. I cannot recommend this book enough to anyone who loves historical fantasy or just fantasy YA in general. I'm sure I will read this duology many tim [...]
