Black sheep yet again. Womp womp. I’ll start with the things I liked first. The world was really unique and interesting – a bit weird, sure, but it was cool. I liked that it had second person point of view, and the twist was great. I appreciated how all of the points of view came together. But that’s where my enjoyment stopped. I couldn’t connect to the characters at all and I just didn’t care about anything that was happening. […]

It’s been a while since I was so grossly disappointed in a sequel. This book has severe second book syndrome. I loved Raybearer, but everything I loved about about it was missing from this book. In my review of Raybearer I praised the richly enchanting world – that it was vivid and and captivating, and that the culture saturated the story – and we got none that in this book. The core relationships of the first book are also missing. […]

I don’t have much to say about this one other than I loved it to pieces! The narration is FANTASTIC, and I loved the characters and the sense of found family. There’s something about Klune’s quirky prose and almost sardonic humor that just draws me in. I really adore his writing – it’s magical, SUPER quotable, and also very poignant. There were some passages that were just so beautiful and spoke to me in a way I can’t describe – […]

Overall, this book was extremely generic. I feel like it didn’t bring anything new to the table as far as fantasy goes, and it just felt like a mashup of a bunch of other stories I’ve read a million other times before. The writing is also very bland. However, that isn’t to say that I didn’t enjoy it, because I did for the most part. I was a little bored in the middle, but it maintained my interest enough to […]

I felt like I was on drugs reading this book. Either I was on drugs reading it, or the author was on drugs writing it. Don’t get me wrong, I like weird. And this book was nothing if not unique. But sometimes the wtfery got a bit thick even for me, and more than once while listening I said out loud, “wait, what?” or “I don’t even know what the hell is going on.” There were a couple times I […]

This is a hard book to review, because I have pretty mixed feelings about it. In the beginning, it felt very much like a rip off of Zero Repeat Forever, which is one of my all time favorite books (read: those are some VERY big shoes to fill). The dynamic between M0rR1s (Morris to humans, audiobook narrator pronounced it “em-zero-one-is” in Ilori language) and Janelle is VERY similar to August and Raven. Their personalities are incredibly similar as well – Janelle […]
