Christmas Shopaholic. Riverstone Ridge. It's fantasy, which really isn't my thing a lot of the time, but I'm learning that there are only certain elements of fantasy I don't like, like elves, for some reason ; , and this book didn't have them. It's one of those books I really don't want to say a lot about content-wise, because along with the main character, Amy, you're dropped into a world and are left to figure things out for yourself. If you're open to that you'll have a good time with the story, unless you happen to stumble upon and are bothered by the following: I have to go into spoilerish territory now because something did bug me.
Bothers me a lot, even though it was addressed and resolved in the book and in the end I guess you can put it down to genre-specific cliche.
There's two sex scenes in this book that read a lot like rape, and at the point they happen that remains unaddressed. The main character later addresses it and says she was abused, both mind and body, but it still left a bitter taste in my mouth. I wonder if that specific point that was made by describing those scenes could have been achieved in any other way, without leaving the impression of abused forgiving abuser for what she did and live happily ever after. ETA: The above issue is still bothering me, with the additional level that the scene is clearly written to be sexy.
I am truly and really offended by this in the context of this story. I also don't quite understand why none of the other reviews here and wherever I came across them address this. I really don't think that I'm 'too sensitive' in this regard. I did not care for the bestiality aspect of this or the near rape of the MC, Amy.
Not sure I want to continue on with this series. I read this because the series has such high ratings. Jan 18, D. Leigh rated it it was amazing. I loved this book, the first in Gill's werewolf series.
It is a breakthrough novel for her, I think. Funny, sexy. It makes you want to howl a little on your own. It is a must-read, in my opinion. Nov 04, Just a man's point of view rated it really liked it Shelves: lesbian , paranormal. I read this book after Ambereye. Many comments say that Ambereye, book 2 of the Garoul series, is better than Goldenseal, book 1. I don't know if I agree; they are very different. I really liked Ambereye which is almost all romance, with the main character Jolie really amusing, so nervous and sweet.
GOLDENSEAL BY GILL MCKNIGHT PDF
Goldenseal, on the other hand, is a wonderful mistery book and the one of the best view spoiler [werewolf hide spoiler ] novel I have ever read. Leone Garoul si really a problematic character, walking I read this book after Ambereye. Leone Garoul si really a problematic character, walking on the edge of right and wrong behaviour. She's not always positive, she can be istinctive, proud, coward, dangerous and violent.
But for this very reason she's also so real and so "human"! Aug 10, Jimmy Hanson rated it liked it Shelves: , f-f. The Garoul family - clan, really - and the land they own. Amy comes across as intricately woven in among them and yet separate, and Leone - a powerful personality, daughter of the owner of the land and leader of the family, a head-strong woman who is determined to right wrongs that happened in their youth. As the novel went on the plot grew more and more detail, more and more "2.
As the novel went on the plot grew more and more detail, more and more exciting Amy became a wishy-washy waffler, thinking of how much she loves Leone and how they will move on with a new start - and then turning around less than a page [or paragraph] later saying to herself that she would never let Leone in her heart again. Likewise, Leone gradually turned from a headstrong and admirable character into a simpering ex-girlfriend desperate to win Amy's forgiveness and win back her mate.
It was just As was even mentioned at one point, Leone would walk across burning coals to win Amy back and deserve every moment of it Because of circumstances beyond her young control that guided her in one direction and Amy in another as teeneagers? As for the plot, the discovery of different things happened in jerking spurts; Amy would find a piece to the puzzle, get confused, set it aside, work on her sketching, argue with Leone, find another piece of the puzzle, get confused, set it aside, be confronted with odd violence or bloody evidence of a frightening beast nearby, settle for the half-ass explanation she's given, suspect something is up, shrug and set it aside, go back to painting I cannot possibly say how aggravating that was.
She sees trees ripped to shreds, and lets it go. Finds a mutilated deer corpse, lets it go. Suspects the Garouls are lying when they go hunting without guns and explain a dead deer off as being hit by one of their trucks when the only damage it has is its throat ripped out, and she lets it go.

By three-fourths of the way through, I was ready to jump into the novel, pummel Amy and tell her to man up [woman up? View 1 comment. This is the first book I've read by McKnight and I was very impressed. I read it in a day and a half and found myself lost in the world she created. I could feel the weather and smell the forest and when a book does that, it's one I'll come back to again.
Goldenseal by Gill McKnight | Bold Strokes Books
I really enjoyed spending time with the characters and the plot was gripping and tense. This is one of the first romance thrillers I've read that actually scared me at points. I wouldn't classify it as a horror over-all, but the elements of This is the first book I've read by McKnight and I was very impressed. I wouldn't classify it as a horror over-all, but the elements of horror fiction it contained were just as well done as the rest of the story. Amy and Leone are good leads and I'd love another book starring them.
They frustrated me at times but the better I got to know them the more their interactions made sense.
Leone is kind of childish, or maybe childlike is the better description, when we first get to know her, but by the end I felt for her and understood how her life had left her that way and more importantly, saw how she was getting better and believed it. I also totally bought their sexual chemistry. One of the sex scenes is extremely hot, maybe one of the hottest I've ever read. Also unconventional and I really appreciated that because sometimes sex scenes in this genre feel a little cookie-cutter.
This one showed that there are other ways lesbians can have sex than just what Hollywood puts in movies. So, transporting writing, good handling of romance, horror, mystery and suspense, engaging leads with great chemistry, definitely pick it up. Dec 03, Nikki rated it really liked it Shelves: ebooks , sci-fi-fantasty , lgbt.
I really enjoyed this book, even if I wanted to smack the living daylights out of the Leone character for not spilling any info when Amy starts finding some seriously unavoidable evidence regarding the mysteries of the valley. Overall though, great humor, good snarky dialogue and I'll probably almost immediately start reading the rest of the series posthaste! Jun 26, Carol Hutchinson rated it it was amazing.
Goldenseal is the first book in the Garoul series, introducing the family, and Amy Fortune to us. I absolutely adored every moment of the story. Experiencing this story mostly from her perspective was refreshing because although she is familiar with the valley and the family, she has a lot to learn, and a past with Leone to face. A must read.
