Bright We Burn

Satisfying, every bit of the word. As all things must come to an end, I can't deny that this was one of the best ones to end the trilogy. Everything comes full circle.

In The Shadows

The only good thing was the graphics. It was beautiful and even gorgeous if you ask me, while the prose was absolutely dry and dull. I loved the art, as I flipped back to enjoy the pictures. However the writing seemed to be so lifeless and didn't expand on the worldbuilding at all, not really… Continue reading In The Shadows

Now I Rise 

This was worth every cent that I spent on it. I bought this book, becoming way too anxious to try and reserve it instead. And this was totally worth it, worth all the money.

But nothing else really, because I could feel… Continue reading Paranormalcy

The Chaos Of Stars 

It was really hard to finish this book until the end, when I ended up nearly giving up halfway. Anyway, I've managed to read through it and it did pick up in the last hundred pages or so.  I enjoyed the story, for all its mythology and that it was true to the core. The… Continue reading The Chaos Of Stars

And I Darken 

This book had destroyed me and brought me a great amount of joy. Despite it not having much of fantasy, it was one of the best books I have ever written. And at the same time, it was one of the most complex books, with a lot of political intrigue and fascinating characters with their… Continue reading And I Darken
