    One thought on “Menagerie”

    1. If monsters could look like humans, and humans could look like monsters, how could anyone ever really be sure that the right people stood on the outside of all those cages 3 1 2 stars If it wasn t for the slightly messy and rushed ending, this would be a solid four stars One thing is sure about Ms Vincent she knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat.Menagerie presents a paranormal alternate reality that is unlike anything I ve ever read It s creative, it s fantastical, but the most notable [...]

    2. this is my first rachel vincent book.i d heard good things about her, but always from readers who like urban fantasy or that kind of YA fantasy romance that i m just not into this book sounded like a departure from her usual style, and i ve had a lot of luck with sideshow carnival novels this year, so when i saw it listed as a giveaway on the reading room, i figured might as well, and then there was WINNING but i did not expect to love it as much as i did because, yeah it s pretty much urban fan [...]

    3. But if monsters could look like humans, and humans could look like monsters, how could anyone ever really be sure that the right people stood on the outside of all those cages This is the first book in the Menagerie Series and this one is a winner It is a dark fantasy.Deliah Marlow visits a carnival and something happens really bad and she gets arrested She thinks she is human but what happened at the carnival made people believe that she was a monster She is then sold to Metzger who owns the ca [...]

    4. Hey, guys, I just wanted to let everyone know that with MENAGERIE coming out soon Sept 29, 2015 I m seeing lots of reviews and shelving of the book here on GR Unfortunately, lots of people are shelving it as YA, and MENAGERIE is NOT YA Nor is it romance My publisher classifies it as fantasy commercial fiction.While MENAGERIE addresses some very serious issues I tend to return to in my work, it is a very different kind of book than I ve ever written It s not simply one woman s story struggle The [...]

    5. MY BLOG Melissa Martin s Reading ListMY FIRST FAVORITE BOOK OF 2016 Okay, on with the review In this traveling circus there are all of these beautiful cryptid creatures they live in horrible conditions You only have a few that are really dangerous Some stuff went down way back when the government stripped all cryptids of their rights they were under no protection, even the hybrids They were treated so horrible in this place I couldn t hardly stand it I loved almost all of the characters, well th [...]

    6. Menagerie is one of those books that completely split my opinion Some things I thought were great, others had me barrowing my face in my hands with frustration But first thing s first The book s concept is unique and intriguing, and I am happy to say that the execution didn t make me think differently The plot is fresh and that, combined with the fact that this novel is devoid of romance, makes Menagerie stand out from other generic books from the genre But if monsters could look like humans, an [...]

    7. Reviewed by Rabid Reads.I knew precisely two things about this audiobook going in Rachel Vincent wrote it, and she published a blog post stating that MENAGERIE is not urban fantasy, nor is it romance, nor is it YA And, that was enough to hook me because 1 Vincent can write And 2 I wanted to sample this genre bending story first hand.I ve read a couple of reviews that have compared it to Anne Bishop s THE OTHERS series, and that s not too far off base, albeit not 100% accurate either It s dark, l [...]

    8. OKAY I AM FINISHED.While the first half of this book was ROUGH for me I was looking at a 1 star rating for this book, to be honest , I slowly got used to all the disturbing things that went on oh my gosh am I a psychopath That sounded really bad , and started to get into the story itself.Basically, once you can get past human captivity, torture, forced labor slavery, and some sexual harassment you can enjoy this one Which makes me feel like a psychopath because HOW CAN ONE JUST GET USED TO THAT [...]

    9. I enjoyed this book and would give it 3.5 stars I would probably read a sequel without rushing to do so The menagerie of the title is in a world where cryptids are showcased in much the same way as the freak shows of days gone by There was a fantastic array of creatures shapeshifter, a Minotaur, werewolves, mermaids, oracles, ifrits , sirens, succubi, satyr, centaurs and fae It was interesting to see these creatures in this urban fantasy setting None of the creatures are treated well and there i [...]

    10. Welcome to the menagerie, where beauty and grace shine from every cage and peek from every shadow You ve never seen anything like the exotic wonders within, so keep your eyes open, ladies and gentlemen, because in our world of spectacle and illusion, what you see isn t always what you get Right off the bat, this is unlike anything Vincent has ever written So if you re expecting her usual romantic fun stories, well, don t.Menagerie is a dark, provocative, and disturbing story It depicts a world w [...]

    11. This one is without any doubt amongst the best books I have read in 2015, and while reading it I was often reminded of this quote Set in an alternative reality where life will never be the same either for human beings or cryptids after the Reaping it is not the usual or expected story about supernatural beings When Delilah Marlow, an ordinary woman with an extra ordinary fascination visits Metzger s Menagerie she expects many things but not the ruthlessness of the workers towards the cryptids th [...]

    12. 4.5 starsIf that girl was a monster, anyone could be a monster That s why the world was so terrified of another reaping Because just like last time, humanity would never see it coming.But if monsters could look like humans, and humans could look like monsters, how could anyone ever really be sure that the right people stood on the outside of all those cages It is dark, provocative, at times even disturbing It depicts a world where cryptids protohuman hybrids are harassed and stripped of their ri [...]

    13. 4 1 2 stars just short of perfect Delilah Marlow leads a pretty dull life, living with her boyfriend and working as a bank teller Then one night she visits Metzger s Menagerie, a traveling showcase of cryptids shapeshifters, mermaids, djinn, a minotaur, among many others and is suddenly declared a cryptid herself She is stripped of her clothing, belongings, bank account, and all her rights, and sold to the menagerie by the state of Oklahoma Trapped and helpless, she is abused, debased, and starv [...]

    14. The I think about it, the less impressed I am with this book It was a solid read but it could have been better.The GoodThe world building was rock solid Unlike a lot of poorly thought out urban fantasies this novel took the time to craft a realistic world It was disturbing If intelligent animals could speak this would be their experience of modern life I had that thought a number of times and it made me really uncomfortable Which is fantastic The best sort of fiction pushes me to reflect on the [...]

    15. This was a tough book to read The subject matter made it hard for me to turn the page My indignation for the fictional characters ran so deep, I wasn t sure what compelled me to read on.Please note, there isn t romance in this story I do however have hope for some in the future But I also fear it will never come to that.Meanwhile I m disappointed the next book isn t out yet I got this as an audible daily deal I will be reading the next installment.The narrator for the audio book did a really goo [...]

    16. It was an interesting read And not at all like i expected There was just an element, that just wasn t as expected I dragged along at some points, but it was fine I liked it.

    17. A fun and easy urban fantasy story taking place where you could guess Factoring in a lot of mythological creatures with some twists What would happen if you weren t quite human An interesting concept The series is supposed to have three books I m not sure it interested me enough to make a story line out of two books but it was good as a standalone nonetheless This was an audiobook The narrator was good, not special.

    18. This book is set in what I can only describe as a sort of parallel universe It s set in the US but it s completely different to the world that we live in In Ms Vincent s reality the things that go bump in the night are real and just about every mythological or paranormal creature you ve read about is actually corporal Now here s where things get a little tricky to explain so I will try my best In 1986 thousands of children were murdered by their parents under some type of compunction but each fa [...]

    19. The closest I can compare this new series from Rachel Vincent is The Others by Anne Bishop and Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs It has the same level of nasty tension between people and cryptids as in Bishop s books, and it has mythology familiar to Briggs And it s also wholesomely awesome So, if you are a fan of one or the other, buy it It has a decent price on kindle.Delilah Marlow spent all her life thinking she is human Sure, she is very uncomfortable with human policy towards cryptids, wh [...]

    20. 4.5 WOWWhat an amazing book with a fabulous plot Kept me flipping pages like crazy I did spoil myself with the ending, as usual when it gets too nerve racking But I can t wait until the next book, which will be out in 6 month, ugh The premise was a menagerie of mythical beings Usual freak shows and crazy exhibitions have biological rarities, referred to as freaks of nature Using humans with unique physical looks and or diseases But Menagerie was a circus of hybrids and mythical creatures that we [...]

    21. 4 starsRudolph shook his head to disguise the chill traveling up his spine This female could incite riots She could save the carnival or be the end of everything he d been working toward his entire life You must break her, Gallagher She is the spark, and if that spark kindles, it will burn my menagerie to the ground This is unlike any paranormal book I ve read I don t even know how to describe it There were flaws, but the incredible array of mythology and depth of the characters was tantalizing [...]

    22. 4.5Eu sabia que adoraria esse livro quando eu resolvi compra lo no ano passado Estou muito feliz que minhas expectativas foram atendidas.Aviso de cara para quem n o tem est mago para ler sobre qualquer tipo de abuso, seja f sico ou emocional, que esse livro talvez n o seja para voc Mesmo n o tendo cenas altamente gr ficas, por muitas vezes fica muito claro o que est acontecendo por tr s das cortinas do Menagerie N o nada gratuito e sim necess rio para ilustrar as condi es horrorosas que os Crypt [...]

    23. This review can also be found at Carole s Random Life.I loved this audiobook I love it when an audiobook can completely pull me into another world like this one did I couldn t get this story out of my head even when I wasn t actively listening to it Everything about this story was so vivid and I really felt for the characters I bought this audiobook when it was on sale months ago but I had no idea how wonderful the story was at that time I am so glad that I decided to pick this one up.The world [...]

    24. I am irritated at myself for having this on my shelf for so long without having opened it I loved every minute of this book It s weird and brutal and violent and unlike anything I have ever read The world the author builds here is maybe my favorite part I have many questions and hopefully I will have answers in the next book

    25. What a great interesting story that was everything I expected and Only complaint, too many POV s.

    26. 3.5 STARS Couple of slow chapters in the book i just wished for action, but the story is fresh, creative and has a very strong story line i was glued till the very last page For the romance lovers NO ROMANCE Didn t really miss it to tell you the truth.
