Description

Product Description

Following a disastrous encounter with a noble, Myne finally resolves to say goodbye to her family and friends in the lower city, changing her name to “Rozemyne” and beginning her new life as the adopted daughter of Ehrenfest’s archduke. However, her days as an archnoble in noble society are brutal, as she is put through rigorous etiquette and magic training on top of her duties as High Bishop and forewoman. It all proves too much for a weak little seven-year-old girl... Or it would have, had the High Priest not offered her the keys to the temple’s book room as a reward. If she could get her hands on those, she’d be able to read all sorts of precious books! Her name may have changed, but Rozemyne’s passion for books remains the same as she charges into a whole new world! The detailed setting expands as the printing industry grows in size. Here begins Part 3 of this biblio-fantasy for book lovers everywhere!

I''ve been impatiently waiting for this one. It deals with the changes in mynes life now that she''s Rozemyne. The temple was a transition but this is even more crazy changes!

Also a lot of things we''ve been waiting for happen in this book. Like the Italian restaurant, getting her magic mount (i adored the picture of her mount, soo cute!) and how they are going to expand printing.
My fav parts were probably the restaurant and the concert. I have to say the dynamic between the brothers and their cousin (Ferdinand, Sylvester, and Kurdstadt) is so great and pretty much any scene with all three had me laughing. Ferdinands fans were also cracking me up so hard. Bennoo is still my favorite but these books have such great characters i love a ton of them.

There was a scene near the beginning i saw other reviews complain about. It was uncomfortable but definitely had no sexual connotations. It was also very important world building because it establishes the science of how Mynes mana works and how bodies in this world biologically do differ from ours. I really don''t know how they''ll include it in the anime because they litterally talk about another important scene from an earlier book that the anime completely left out. Hopefully they find a way to include the mana info without the scene.

I''ll get right to it. There is a really messed up scene at the beginning of this book. I felt like I was reading some kind of attempted rape or molestation of an 8 year old girl, and it really upset me. This whole attempted stripping lasted for a lot of pages too. Lest you think I''m exaggerating, here is a direct quote from the book (available in the Amazon preview as well):

“Karstedt, now! Hold her down!” Ferdinand ordered, speaking in the same tone he would use in the Knight’s Order. As Karstedt instinctively grabbed Rozemyne, Ferdinand quickly strode over, getting behind her and deftly undoing the tiny buttons lining the back of her dress one by one.

Other than that awful scene which I barely made it through and set a horrible tone for the rest of the book, overall, this book was a real page turner. It did answer most of my questions from P2V4, which were:

1) What happened to the High Bishop, etc?
2) How does Rosemyne fare emotionally after what happened? Does she get to see her family again?
3) Up until now, Myne hasn''t been very good at hiding her emotions. How will Rosemyne survive in noble society?
4) Will she make new enemies? Will nobles be constantly trying to kidnap or kill her?
5) Will there be any more papermaking, interaction with commoners, etc, or is that all over now?

There was one very touching moment where Rosemyne received a gift. I immediately realized what was going on and I teared up even before the book got into it. That was definitely the highlight of this book for me.

I like it when there is some kind of overarching problem that takes a while to overcome. For example: Myne''s fevers, lack of materials, the High Bishop, music lessons, etc. While there are certainly problems that needed to be overcome in this book, they never lasted long. And the one long term problem was given no sense of urgency. Because of that, I felt like the challenges and conflicts in this book were resolved too easily, and that left me a bit disappointed.

Overall an okay book. But it can''t compare with truly exceptional earlier entries like P2V2.

This was probably the most fast paced book in the series to date. We hit on all the stuff I wanted to see or internally thought about. The restaurant, Uncle Ferdinand, the cat bus! I swear I really did think the cat bus would be best for safety and additional seating. I will have to absorb all the new characters. At first I thought we would have to deal with more heavy emotions but this lighter theme was what we all needed. I''m sure the next one will be the start of the uphill climb of part three. Can''t wait!

Lol. Really enjoyed this volume and part. The choice of highbeast really caught me off guard. So fun. The way she put back together the highbeast crystal and floored Ferdinand is great fun too. I have an idea for the next concert. A talent show allowing many nobles to strut their stuff. The choosing of which nobles/ talents to be shown could cause a lot of problems too.
The food descriptions are awesome. So all foodies should enjoy this. Time for tea yet?
So much more to wait and see how they go.
Thanks for a great series. Waiting for Oct.

Esté volumen ha sido el que menos drama ha tenido. El evento final siendo el concierto de Ferdinand fue gracioso pero yo esperaba algo más de drama al último. Se ve un crecimiento general en Mine. Ella está más madura y trata de aplicar lo que aprendió tras ensaño y error anteriormente. Me hubiera gustado más detalles sobre sus primeros días en el distrito noble. Seguramente hubiera metido la pata varias veces y hubiera sido muy gracioso, tierno y dramático como lo fue su llegada al templo. En este volumen no hay ningún antagonista como lo fue el Sumo Pontífice por lo que no hay ningún evento que amenace a Myne. Espero en el próximo volumen aparezca algún antagonista. En este volumen se siente también con pesar la ausencia cada vez menos de Lutz y Benno como personajes secundarios. La familia de Myne está prácticamente ausente y solo aparece Tuuli interactuando con Myne en unas pocas páginas por lo que se pierden los momentos tiernos y cálidos que vivía Myne con su familia en el distrito bajo.

Myne is dead, long live Rozemyne? Benno pretty much sums it up in part 2 when he tells Lutz that even with a new name that is not going to change who she really is, a book loving girl who will never truly change. Even saying that, the second summer as a 7 year old is occupied with learning how to be a noble, learning how to be a GOOD high bishop and getting the funding to launch the printing industry. Tons of new characters, but at the expense of the downtown crew. Which is kind of frustrating because Ferdinand asks a question that Rozemyne can''t answer, but it''s totally something that Effa would be able to help with, but Effa and Gunther are not in this volume. She does get to physically see them, but not interact with them. Like the other volume 1''s in the series, this one is more about adapting to a new environment than confronting a conflict. If I were to complain about anything, I would say it needs more Frieda. Part 2 needed more Frieda as well, but this part is where it would make sense that Frieda gets a larger role.

I have to say I enjoy every volume of this series as much as the last. There is always a good mix of old questions answered and new questions asked. I also love how we learn more about this world with every volume. Remember in the beginning when we know nothing about the mysterious nobles quarters? Well in this volume we learn all about it for the first time. Although our main character is living in completely new conditions she is still the same character, and we get to meet a lot of interesting new characters. I will say I miss Myne’s family as much as she does as well as Lutz but I love all the new characters too.

There was a low review that says the reader was disturbed by an early scene in the book. I think this is a good warning because some people might be triggered by a scene in which a child is forced to do something. Personally, I felt like the scene was heartwarming as it seemed to show that Ferdinand and Karsdet really think of Myne like a family member and care about her well being.

I make no secret of how much I love this series, its characters and world. This is the first volume of the third story arc. It sees Myne - now named Rozamyne getting to grips with noble society and her new expanded family. We learn more about Sylvester and Ferdinand. Meet plenty of new characters and watch as Myne further progresses in her drive to make books more widely available and popular - taking some unusual steps to get there too. The pacing of this book feels a little different to previous books in the series. With the rapid expansion and changes to Mynes environment and the world building around her - the story starts to take a more of a broader view and the pacing changes as a result. But it loses none of the charm or whimsy that this series is known for. I love this series and really wish the release schedule for new English language volumes could be sped up somehow.

Ascendance of a Bookworm is one of the very few series where I routinely read every volume twice - usually immediately after finishing it the first time. [Roze]Myne is smart and relatable but has her own share of faults; she is far from the typical overpowered fantasy protagonist - on the contrary, she is desperately sickly but strains to overcome her limitations. The characters which surround her are believable and layered; the plot rarely action-filled but always absorbing. The world in which the series is set is detailed and believable. Outstanding in every way.
