Review: The Sting of the Scorpio by Monique Domovitch

The Sting of the Scorpio by Monique Domovitch

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

The Sting of the Scorpio by Monique Domovitch is the second of two novels about the lives of Alex and Brigitte. This novel pretty much picks up just after the first one ends. Unlike the first novel that takes place both in the US and in France, this one takes place only in the US and specifically in the City of New York.

Scorpio Rising follows Alex and Brigitte through their childhoods into young adulthood whereas The Sting of the Scorpio follows them through most of their rest of their lives. The titles even give clues as to parts of life each book is about.

I liked being able to follow Alex and Brigitte from meager beginnings in early childhood through the growth and changes during much of their lives. And ‘watch’ the challenges each face during the various stages of life.

I found The Sting of the Scorpio to also be a quick and entertaining read. Like the first one each of the main characters have chapters written from their perspective which I think that makes both novels very multi-dimensional and more realistic.

I found Alex and Brigitte to each have qualities that I could relate to. I liked that there was more of a conclusion to the end of this one, than the first, but would have liked an Epilogue from Brigitte’s perspective as well. I think that since both books were from both of their points of view, the ending should have been shared as well. Both books only took me a few days to read and held my attention throughout.

The Sting of the Scorpio by Monique Domovitch is available now.

Review: Scorpio Rising by Monique Domovitch

Scorpio Rising by Monique Domovitch

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Scorpio Rising is the first of two novels about the lives of Alex and Brigitte by Monique Domovitch. Alex was born and raised in Brooklyn while Brigitte was grew up in Paris. While they grew up thousands of miles apart both faced many challenges in their early youth.

I liked how the chapters alternated from whose point of view in which they were told from. Not long into the book I figured out what one of the main plots was, but enjoyed ‘watching’ it unfold. I did find that the time differences between the main characters to be confusing as they are the same age, yet many years might pass before switching back to the other characters point of view.

I thought that Alex and Brigitte were very well developed and complex main characters. I found myself rooting for them as they grew up. Both of them are very driven and motivated young people determined to get what they wanted out of life. Although sometimes at the expense of others, in the case of Alex. Both are dreamers and have big plans, but as in reality, “life happens when you’re out making other plans” and so things happens not always as either would have ideally liked. Which I think added to the realism of this book, as things don’t always go the way one wants.

I found Scorpio Rising to be a very quick yet entertaining read. Though I didn’t like that there wasn’t much a conclusion, but more of a “end of part one” type of ending which made me very glad that I had the second book already.

Scorpio Rising by Monique Domovitch is available now.
