Ruthanna Emrys ✓ 2 Review

Rys brings together a family of outsiders bridging the gaps between the many people marginalized by the homogenizing pressure of 1940s AmericaAphra Marsh descendant of the People of the Water has survived Deep One internment camps and made a grudging peace with the government that destroyed her home and exterminated her people on land Deep Rootscontinues Aphra’s journey to rebuild her life a. The first book in this series Winter Tide introduced a Lovecraftian mythos Earth with a found family where the monsters are just other sorts of peopleAphra Marsh and her confluence are seeking other humans with connections to the Deep Ones so that they can repopulate Innsmouth before the whole town is swallowed up by developers On coming to New York they have some success but also become involved with the FBI again because of increasing activity from the Outer Ones the meigo The Outer Ones are in danger of stepping in to manipulate the politics of the Cold War with potentially disastrous conseuencesThese books are wonderful particularly in their inclusiveness and commentary on moving on from the disasters of the past They take these themes far beyond things that we struggle with now like race gender and sexuality into species reality and horrific elements The author has a genius for demonstrating that even things like the Mi go brain canisters actually have an upside while still preserving the visceral horror of the concept Aphra s love for the Elders of her people never conceals that they re horrific looking fishfrog people with needle sharp teeth Even ghouls get a sympathetic treatment hereI will say that this book is very slow and features a lot of talking between large groups of people This can feel a little clumsy as when a character who hasn t been part of a conversation for several pages suddenly interrupts with a comment You re left wondering at times who else is in the room other than the people dominating the conversation and the person who just interjected The first book was a bit like this too but this book increases the cast and exacerbates the problem Still they re interesting conversations and the primary way that we see characterization as there isn t really a lot of other action To give an explicit example the final conflict is resolved by view spoilerbasically a sit in by one of the groups of the Outer Ones hide spoiler Sottomissione visceral horror of the concept Aphra s love for the Elders of her people never conceals that they re horrific looking fishfrog people with needle sharp teeth Even ghouls get a sympathetic treatment hereI will say that this book is The Isles view spoilerbasically a sit in by one of the groups of the Outer Ones hide spoiler

Deep Roots

Wicked for the Cthulhu Mythos Seanan McGuire on the Innsmouth Legacy Ruthanna Emrys’ Innsmouth Legacy which began with Winter Tide and continues with Deep Roots confronts H P Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos head on boldly upturning his fear of the unknown with a heart warming story of found family acceptance and perseverance in the face of human cruelty and the cosmic apathy of the universe Em. I really enjoyed this novel but let s be real here this isn t your average Cthulhu monster novel full of mystery and intrigue and reveals that turn your hair white in disbelief There aren t even 1d6 investigators to throw into the open maw of a multitentacled AND multidimensional immortal beastieBut there are multitentacled and multidimensional immortal beasties ghouls Deep Ones halfbreeds and Creatures of Air Not to mention strange boxes a focus on books legacy and the ultimate fate of mankind I mean the whole thing that comes with a Cthulhu tale is the realization that we re insignificant specks of poop in a disturbed nightmare of a dead but sleeping god Of course our fates are up in the airBut that s where we take our tale out of the norm and place it firmly in the hands of a nuanced and careful character who has been locked away in a concentration camp thanks to her own country who only wants to read and preserve her culture who had suffered a massacre of almost all her people on her home soil in Innsmouth And she s a monster An immature Deep One Who likes books and just wants to be left alone But thanks to the FBI and her folks under the sea and a nightmare of diplomacy with other Outsiders that reckon diplomatic negotiations in terms of 50 thousand years she s thrown right into a tangled tentacular soup trying to protect the flies that s us humans with the super technologically advanced multidimensional space traveling immortals that WE call Lovecraftian horrorsThe premise and deep exploration of characters and processes and reveals including dreamwalking magics and threats from well meaning gods that think that consuming us is a proper way to preserve us forever is a perfect delight It is NOT a humorous tale however So fans of Stross Laundry Files should be forewarned It is however philosophical ethical and it tries to answer all the uestions about what constitutes MONSTERS No one is at fault but the power differentials are immense and even the flies can stingI m perfectly on board for reading this series until the end of time It s deep clever and monstrous

Nd family on land as she tracks down long lost relatives on land She must repopulate Innsmouth or risk seeing it torn down by greedy developers but as she searches she discovers that people have been going missing She will have to unravel the mystery or risk seeing her way of life slip awayAt the Publisher's reuest this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software DRM applied. I really really loved the first book in this series Winter Tide so when I had the opportunity to read an ARC of Deep Roots I jumped at the chance I really enjoyed both books but was also a bit surprised by how different they wereIn Winter Tide the plot felt almost secondary to me what I loved about the book was the character development and the approach to themes of chosen family and how to rebuild one s life Deep Roots on the other hand felt much faster paced and the plot seemed to drive it a lot Rather than being a warm story about family and healing Deep Roots seemed to be a not entirely resolved debate about philosophy identity and how humanity and individuals can and should relate to the size of the universe and the presence of beings and societies incomprehensibly larger older and powerful than us Not to mention how we need to learn to relate to our own differences we may all be monsters here but we re certainly not all the same sort of monsterThat s not to say that the characters in Deep Roots weren t important they certainly were I loved getting to visit with Aphra s retinue again and the addition of flashbacks from other characters points of view was a wonderful addition Some of the flashback scenes were incredibly heartwarming seeing Spector and Charlie first really get to know each other left me strongly wishing my partner was there to hold me And some of the new characters we met were wonderful as well I found myself strangely drawn to Audrey s cousin and I really hope that we see of her in the futureSpeaking of which Winter Tide felt like a self contained stand alone book I was uite surprised but very excited when I found out a seuel was coming out The ending to Deep Roots felt a bit less like a satisfactory end to the story and I really hope that Ruthanna Emrys will write a third book in the series soon we need to find out how the changes at the end of this story play outThe first time I read Winter Tide I broke down crying at the beauty of the story several times The first time I read Deep Roots I don t think I cried at all but I felt like I shared some of Aphra s pain at discovering moral and philosophical complexity in a world that she had thought she d finally gotten her grip back on I really can t wait to see what the third book makes me feel even though what I know of the world ours and that of the Mythos makes me suspect things won t get easier

    What I find most interesting about this particular pattern of themes and the way they emerge in the novel is that the author presents a potential solution to a very real problem We all want the world to be a better place We want to vanuish oppression and fear and be really truly free But in order to do that we first need to be open and honest with the people around us about who we are and what we are while at the same time bein
