Kinslayer

DNF I gave up on this book. There is nothing else to say about it. In my mind, Stormdancer was still decent although Nevernight was a mess for lack of better word. I just didn't care about any of the characters at all. I found Buruu to be more annoying than anything else for that… Continue reading Kinslayer

Alanna: The First Adventure

Well, this was okay. It is like many epic fantasies that I know but as usual, it has its own charm. Alanna was intriguing in her choices but it was rather like any other book. Though this precedes many of them given its publication date. But to me, I guess I just have read way… Continue reading Alanna: The First Adventure

Crossbones 

I just didn't understand what this book was all about. And well, I really really tried. At first, it did manage to catch my attention. But there just wasn't anything that I really wanted to read about here.  I barely know anything about the world or even any of the characters at all. They are… Continue reading Crossbones

La Belle Sauvage

This was just unique and in a way drawed me in comepletely. The beginning about a baby girl and Malcolm which drives him to instead going on a trip. The parallel world is similar to the world as we know it but with many different aspects which are very very different. But at times, I… Continue reading La Belle Sauvage

Asper 

Well, at first this did get to me. But towards the end, it became less of an epic fantasy and more of a romance. Which still doesn't make much sense when it is more portal fantasy, but never explains why is it only the human world and Asper.  Milla is alright, she has motivations, she… Continue reading Asper

A Thousand Pieces Of You

This was a really surprising book, since it's the first one which deals with alternate dimensions and travelling through them. Which was a unique concept to take and also quite messed up to handle. Marguerite changes due to the fact that she is travelling through each dimension when one small change causes a huge ripple.… Continue reading A Thousand Pieces Of You

The Golemn And The Jinni

I think that this was okay overall and that the beginning was it's strongest. The writing really came to life there, and I did enjoy it at the beginning. However towards the end, I didn't enjoy it as much anymore. As I did feel that the plot was a little too slow to my tastes,… Continue reading The Golemn And The Jinni

Queen Moxie 

I really did not get the story. Or even had sympathy for any of the characters. The beginning wandered a little too far from the main character who is the title of the novel itself.  I didn't really enjoy the story as I felt that they story was emotionless and the plot completely fell in… Continue reading Queen Moxie

Land Of The Lost Tribe

Now this was a tale worth reading. About Eldad as he slowly travels the world and gains a lot of knowledge. But Eldad was easily understood and even relatable. Most importantly, this was a journey. A journey to him as he goes through endless struggles, never reaching his destination but somehow gaining a lot on… Continue reading Land Of The Lost Tribe

Knight Of Sherwood

I think that the author took enough liberties to make the work feel hers yet so Robin Hood. He does feel like the outlaw we all know and love who has stolen from the rich to help the poor. And as usual, I like the way he was portrayed. As for the LGBT angle, I… Continue reading Knight Of Sherwood

The Wolf Of Oren-Yaro

This was a strangely enticing book. It isn't about a young Queen or a king. It is a middle aged woman who had a son, and well frankly I really liked how the author portrayed her. She wasn't portrayed as perfect, but full of flaws and weaknesses. And she constantly ran into all sorts of… Continue reading The Wolf Of Oren-Yaro

The Dark Of The Moon

Finally a world with a character that I can relate to. Although Selena at times didn't seem to be all that interesting, however it isn't all that bad. The writing was what really made me feel it was readable, with plenty of lush details yet never wavering from detailing about both characters. I do rather… Continue reading The Dark Of The Moon

Shadow Of The Raven

For once, I really like this work for the tale it tells. Although far from complete and it would take a lot more than that, but I really like the research the author puts into this. As well as the way that it was written, understandable and really enjoyable in the way it was written.… Continue reading Shadow Of The Raven

The Golden Specific 

I just can't seem to get myself to feel anything for this characters. And I certainly say that the world building is once again, good with plenty of exploration. But the characters just don't feel real to me. That is a major turnoff to a reader like me who prefers characters instead of awesome worlds.… Continue reading The Golden Specific
