    The Butterfly and the Flame is a book I ve been anxiously awaiting for over a year now, ever since Dana began teasing it under the title of Emily Equal parts dystopian fantasy, social commentary, and transgender drama, it s the kind of novel that both enlightens and entertains.The story is set in a future America where...

    Unless I m mistaken, this book is self published through an online publisher I ve been reading a lot of self published works lately, andhave been bad than good, I m afraid.I m really happy to report that The Butterfly and the Flame by Dana De Young falls into the latter category.The story follows Emily, a nearly 16 year old girl who has had an arranged marriage with her family s landlord ...

    This book had the most emotional impact on me of any book I ve read this year.The plot follows the path of a transgender woman Emily and her family as they struggle to survive in a corrupt, oppressive theocracy In a sentence, I would describe this book as a trans woman growing up in the setting of The Handmaid s Tale and give a fairly accurate picture of how unrelentingly bleak the story is Horror after horror stalks Emily and her loved ones as she tries to find her place in the twisted wo This book had the most emotional impact on me of any book I ve read this year.The plot follows the path of a transgender woman Emily and her family as they struggle to survive in a corrupt, oppressive theocracy In a sentence, I would describe this book as a trans woman growing up in the setting of The Handmaid s Tale and give a fairly accurate picture of how unrelentingly bleak the story is Horror after horror stalks Emily and her loved ones as she tries to find her place in the twisted world she inhabits.As a transgender w...

    The first thing that I wanted to mention is that, for me, as a trans chick, parts of this book were triggering Fairly substantial parts, to the point where I had a hard time getting through parts, and sometimes had to skim pages I am by no means saying not to read The Butterfly and the Flame, but it s worth keeping in mind that, especially for a trans person, the subject matter may be triggering.I did enjoy the book, and it kept sucking me back in sometimes even when I knew I shouldn t be r The first thing that I wanted to mention is that, for me, as a trans chick, parts of this book were triggering Fairly substantial parts, to the point where I had a hard time getting through parts, and sometimes had to skim pages I am by no means saying not to read The Butterfly and the Flame, but it s worth keeping in mind that, especially for a trans person, the subject matter may be triggering.I did enjoy the book, and it kept sucking me back in sometimes even when I knew I shouldn t be reading it because it was making me upset Emily s emotions are well captured, and portray the actual experience of being trans in both convincing and sympathetic While the character of Emily is aor less typical trans female, the way she is written avoids most of the awful stereotypes that plague portrayals of trans people in media minor spoilers past here The story here is largely sad, but w...

    There are not nearly enough works with trans protagonists, so the author is definitely to be commended for their contribution, and for handling the subject matter with respect and thoughtfulness Yes, the attitudes of many of the characters toward Emily are negative, uncomfortable, and potentially triggering, but at no point did I feel like these were gratuitous or out of place In addition, support and affection for her comes from a few unexpected places, which I greatly appreciated.As other r There are not nearly enough works with trans protagonists, so the author is definitely to be commended for their contribution, and for handling the subject matter with respect and thoughtfulness Yes, the attitudes of many of the characters toward Emily are negative, uncomfortable, and potentially triggering, but at no point did I feel like these were gratuitous or out of place In addition, support and affection for her comes from a few unexpected places, which I greatly appreciated.As other reviews have mentioned, I felt that the pacing suffered a little toward the end, where most of the major plot issues were resolved at breakneck sp...

    The first half of the book was great, and I tore through it eagerly The characters were intriguing and a bitworldbuilding could have been done, but overall was pretty entertaining The next part the escape and chase by enemies slowed down a lot when it should have picked up, and I set the book down for a month before deciding I should just try to finish it.Unfortunately, it doesn t bode well for the book when I started skipping through the last 30 pages in an effort to just get it over The first half of ...

    I liked the dystopian feel of the book and the author did a fantastic job of making you relate to the main Character and you actually felt that he was truely a girl trapped in a boys body.It gives you a new insite and hopefully for some a wakeup call, that we dont choose how we are born we are just born this way.The only thin...

    The story is generally good and engaging It s easy to immerse oneself in Emily s character and also to understand the other character s thoughts and reactions The idea using a hyper conservative dystopian future is great Unfortunately, the internal consistency leaves a lot to be desired Characters are frequently reported making decisions based on things that the reader knows but the character cannot possibly know The editor was also asleep there are typos, missing words, and broken sentenc The story is generally good and engaging I...

    This book had so much potential but just missed the mark The most concise review I could give is sloppy So very many random bits of storyline that the author tried to tie up neatly but failed And the book juststopped I turned the page expecting another chapter and it was just over The resolution using that term loosely was out of place and didn t make sense within the flow of the plot While this book did make me think about hetero and cis normative narratives, I just felt the writ This book had so much potential but just missed the mark The most concise review I could give is sloppy So very many random bits of storyline that the author tried to tie up neatly but failed And the book juststopped I turned the page expecting another chapter and it was just over The resolution using that term loosely was out of place and didn t make sense within the flow of the plot While this book did make me think about hetero and cis normative narratives, I just felt the writer could have...

    I rarely read self published works because all too often they are merely glorified fan fiction, but The Butterfly and the Flame is a solid piece of original story telling I was initially drawn to it because of its trans female main character and I am always anxious to read books t...
