State of Sorrow (Sorrow #1) Reviews

  • Lucy O’Hagan

    State of Sorrow- 5 stars-

    This is definitely going to be one of my favourite YA fantasy books. I didn’t have any expectations going into this novel, since I hadn’t heard any reviews or opinions concerning it, but I absolutely loved it.

    The novel wasn’t packed with action, and some may have found it slow, but I found the pacing perfect. It wasn’t packed with action, but it was full of politics. The struggle for power was intriguing and interesting without needing to have action-packed fights or ev

  • radioactivestardust

    I liked this, a lot. Especially the first part, because it felt really artsy and abstract. The writing was really special. There are some things that don't really make sense, but all in all the book is totally worth reading

    Einen Tag nachdem ihr Bruder bei einem tragischen Unfall ums Leben kommt, wird Sorrow geboren und verliert dabei auch ihre Mutter. Ihr Vater kommt mit dem Verlust nicht klar und verbietet fortan alle Fröhlichkeit aus dem Reich Rhannon. Lachen, singen, tanzen und bunte Kleider sind per sofort verboten.

    18 Jahre später leidet das Volk immer noch unter dem Tod von Mael und nur Sorrow könnte dem ein Ende bereiten. Sie muss sich entscheiden, für das Volk oder für die Freiheit, auch wenn diese b

    State of Sorrow was a book I had never heard of before getting it in my March Fairyloot box. I had never read anything by Melinda Salisbury before even if I had drooled countless times on her book covers.

    In our Fairyloot box was Melinda’s interview where she says: “I’m all about aesthetic and making things look beautiful.” An that she “prefers decorating cakes to making them.” It truly shows in her covers! Honestly State of Sorrows is one of the most lovely covers that I own and deserves

    “She was born a month too soon. And she was born a girl. (…) As she lay there, the stink of death in the air, the Dowager First Lady asked her what she would name the baby. “Sorrow”, she’ said. “For that is all she brings us.”

    She has been ignored by her father her whole life. Her absent brother is the one getting all the love and attention.

    Yet she is seventeen years old and try to hide her father’s weakness. To saty strong for her people.


    Sorrow is a nearly eighteen year old with the weight of the world on her shoulders. She just wanted to live, be free but will be forced to lead a country. She wanted to love whomever she desired yet strict laws forbid relationship between Rhannish and Rhyllian people.

    She feels like an imposter. She does not believe she is experienced enough to lead yet there is no other choice.

    Just when Sorrow begrudgingly accepts her destiny a twist of fate will change everything.


    I really hurt for Sorrow. She did all she could to help, to care, to lead and was ignored at every turn. Brushed under the rug by her father and by many men who only saw a girl. Someone unfit to lead because not of her youth but of her gender. Only a few friends and advisors believed in Sorrow.

    “That’s it? Was that her thanks? She wondered. After eighteen years of neglect, of living under the cloud he created, of growing up in a country that was a living graveyard? This was her thanks? For keeping the country going, and covering for him, this was all she deserved?”


    What would you do?

    Well Sorrow has not said her last word!


    Now you should read State of Sorrow if you love:

    - books with flawed characters. Not all-powerful heroes but rather ones questioning their ability to fulfill the task at hand. Characters making mistakes. Characters constantly battling with opposite feelings and wishes. Sorrow thought it would be easier if her father was dead just to chastise her mind and feel guilty right after. She was convinced she was not enough and did not want to rule just to change her mind when the opportunity to lead was threatened;

    -star crossed lover stories. With one of the lovers clearly being more in love than the other. With one of them making mistakes and hurting the other just to regret it;

    -plot with twists. I had not only one or two but at least four twists in the story. You will go from revelation to revelation. Saying not everyone is who you think is the understatement of the year;

    -stories happening in imaginary world. One bright, colorful, joyful and filled with magic. The other dull and battered needing to breathe again.

    Stars summary

    Male MC: ? (there is not a real main Male MC several side male MC some more important than others)

    Writing: ****/2 (Melinda Salisbury has a lovely writing. It flows effortlessly and fits the universe and the story)

    Plot: ****/2 (secrets and surprise moves)

    Pace: **** (somewhat slow in the beginning. This is not a fast paced story packed with action. It’s just the right pace for the story and the characters).

    Triggers: …. Grief? Addiction?

    Romance: *** (There is some romance but it’s not taking the center piece. Sorrow not opening up fully to Rasmus prevented to have a real passionate romance…so far).

    DNF at pg 47

    Given how positive most of the reviews for this book are, I feel like the black sheep because it wasn’t for me. The beginning is so infodumpy and so many characters are introduced so fast that it’s impossible to become invested in them. Plus, logical fallacies in the world building almost from pg 1. If the bridge is the ONLY thing connecting two countries, and armies refuse to cross it, how has there been a 50 year war? I just didn’t get it at all.

    Maybe it gets better? Idk, but 50p

    Oh. My. God.

    Why didnt I know about Melinda Salisbury before? Her world building is absolutely outstanding. I only bought this copy because it was signed and the cover was nice, but now I need to buy everything I can find of her.

    The positive:

    Its written in 3rd person.

    Her descriptions of surroundings, landscape, cloths was amazing.

    Characters were deeper than just pretty face and werent overwritten, there is still some mystery about them. Some characters you cannot NOT hate and thats the bes
