3.0 out of 5 stars Even if You Hate Sophia Read it for Robert 6 July 2015
By Robin Snyder - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
--'She couldn’t even say when she’d begun to hate herself; she’d lived with low-level self-loathing for a while. Lately it had gotten a lot worse. God! She’d crawl out of her own skin if she could.'

Well I know when I started hating Sophia. I’ve never liked Sophia. I didn’t like her in Mind Games and well by the end of Double Cross I absolutely hate her. But I was hoping that she might find so sort of redemption in this novella. The thing is the hole that she is in is so deep that it might be a little insurmountable.

Disgusted with herself and her life Sophia seeks out the Monk to disillusion her. The problem is that no one knows who the Monk actually is so finding him will be harder than she thought.

Okay even after reading this and finding out about Sophia’s past I’m still not a fan of her but I do understand the motivations of her character a little more. The one reason to maybe read this is Robert and the Tanglelands. I loved the concept of this a structure that totally reflected the emotions of the creator.

-- 'He and the Tangle became deeply connected. The Tangle lived and breathed, or more, Robert lived it, Robert breathed it, morphed it to match his undulating despair.'

Robert makes Sophia a little more human to the reader and not just Otto’s puppet. It is interesting to see where her mindset is going into the final book of the series. While I still don’t like Sophia I did love the story of Robert and the Monk. It was an unusual and interesting expansion on the disillusionists world.

The villainess revisionist Sophia has reached her limits. She can't be the evil person everyone thinks she is anymore. She wants to find the Monk, the person who can revise even herself into the good person whom she once was

Instead she she finds Robert the man she loves and thought lost forever. Will she find salvation or damnation?
2.0 out of 5 stars Disillusionists book 2.5 2 July 2015
By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Kitten-Tiger and the Monk is a novella set in the world of the Disillusionists, it fits into the series timeline between Double Cross and Head Rush and features memory revisionist Sophia as the main character. The novella was originally included in the Wild & Steamy anthology and is now available as a separate ebook.

It's probably no surprise if I tell you that Sophia has never been one of my favourite characters, especially to anyone who saw her actions at the end of Double Cross. I have to admit I wasn't sure whether to even read this novella but my series OCD insists on reading stories in order and I couldn't quite bring myself to skip it. To be honest I think I could have happily skipped this completely if it hadn't been for the introduction of a new HighCap character, Robert, but as it goes I liked him enough that this novella wasn't a complete waste of time.

Sophia is a powerful memory revisionist but she is ashamed of her actions and wants to change so she goes in search of the Monk, one of the most dangerous members of Packard's team, in the hope that he will disillusion her. Her journey to find the Monk brings her back in contact with her childhood sweetheart, the man she betrayed and abandoned but also the man she never forgot.

I had several issues with this novella, the main one being Sophia's wish to be disillusioned. Surely if she realises her actions have been misguided she should suck it up, apologise and try to make things right with her victims? It's a simple matter of choosing to do the right thing and I lost all respect for her because she wants someone else to make changing her behaviour easy for her. Basically I see it as her yet again taking the easy way out and it made me dislike her even more than I did at the end of Double Cross (which took some doing I can tell you!).

Robert was actually a really sweet guy but considering the way Sophia had treated him in the past I found it pretty hard to believe that he would ever be able to forgive her. I actually ended up feeling sorry for him that he got stuck with such a cow for a girlfriend! He deserves so much better and I'd much rather have seen him with someone nice like Shelby. The best part of this novella, for me, was seeing someone with the same kind of abilities as Otto but who used them in such a different way. It was an interesting contrast and I'm hoping we get to see more of Robert in the final book, Head Rush.
