Hazards of Time Travel

I am honestly really really bored by the story. What is there to read? Something going horribly wrong? The idea of time travel being flawed. None of that is actually answered here. When the story literally jumps around with absolutely no idea on what it's doing at the end of the day. Who is the… Continue reading Hazards of Time Travel

Altair: A Record of Battles

If anything, this had been one interesting ride. The story isn't about fantasy, or anything like that.

The beginning starts off… Continue reading Altair: A Record of Battles

A Tale of Two Murders

Well, I didn't feel anything at all while reading the book. It wasn't that bad but was it good, I won't really say it was. The ending was convenient if there was a word for it.
