A Shiver of Light

Sep 17, 2015 by

3 Stars, borrow it. Self Purchase, Kindle Edition This book is slow moving. Parts are very repetitive of other books. However, that being said, I’m still curious to know what is going on with everyone.  At the beginning of the book, Meredith gives birth and we are introduced to the children. It takes too many chapters for them to get out of the hospital though. The plot is almost non existent. Basically Meredith and her men move from room to room through the mansion and in each room some minor thing happens.   Finally, at the end (almost literally at 90%) a HUGE thing happens (which i won’t ruin for you) that makes it worth finishing the book. Normally, I give books I like either 4 or 5’s. I don’t give as many 3’s because...

Elves #1: The Crystal of the Blue Elves 1/2...

4 Stars, Buy it Self Purchase, Comixology I really loved the art in this. At first I wasn’t sure if I liked the story or not but by the end, I really wanted to see what was next.  I felt like you were kind of thrown into the middle of the story without much background. The numbering is a bit weird, but I suspect it’s because it’s a foreign comic. I will be interested to see where this might go. Description (Comixology): The Blue Elves of Ennlya, a small port town of Nordrenn, have been murdered!Lanawyn, a Blue Elf, and Turin, her human ally, set out to discover who is responsible. The trail they uncover leads back to a clan of Yrlans – Northern men who hate Elves.At the same time, Vaalann, a young...

The Complete Elf Quest Volume 1...

Nov 19, 2014 by

5 Stars, buy it   Self Purchase, Kindle   First Impression: Intense. I immediately am drawn in and like the characters. No wonder this is considered a classic. I do find the writing to be a bit over dramatic.  But I still really love the writing anyway. So glad this finally is making it to the Kindle. One concern (and really its minor) is that I felt like it should have been broken down into smaller chunks. This volume takes up a huge amount of space on my Kindle.  I also would have preferred to stop and start after a few issues but I was/am running out of room on the kindle and so needed to finish this to make more room. I also must admit I was so dying to finish this already...

White Witch, Black Curse

Nov 4, 2014 by

Star Rating: 3.5 Stars, Borrow   Self Purchase, Kindle   I waited a long time between the previous book and this one so I had a bit of a hard time getting back into the swing of the series again.   Love, Love, Love Jenks and I love all of his pixie curses (Tink’s Tampons etc) which always make me laugh out loud. Also, I really, really, really want Ivy and Rachel to hook up permanently.  My one problem with the series or in particular with Rachel’s character, is that she is portrayed as this stupid person. I realize she is supposed to be a young inexperienced witch but sometimes it seems like Ivy and Jenks have to explain some of the simpilest things to her. I find that annoying but not to the...

Fairy Quest: Outlaws Issue 1

Oct 20, 2014 by

Overall: 2.5 Stars, Bombed!!   Star Rating Art:   4 Stars Star Rating Story: 1 Star Self Purchase, Humble Bundle   SPOILERS   An alternative version of red riding hood in which Red Riding Hood and the big bad wolf are friends.  Lots of asides with Mr. Grimm issuing citations for people going off script. Then the comic gets abrubt and all the fairy tale characters are in a boot, sort of having group therapy. Cinderella rats out Red Riding hood to Mr. Grimm and a chase ensues yada yada. I just skimmed the rest.   I really liked the art, it had my favorite characteristics. Art taking up all the pages, not much white. Bright Jewel tone colors. Very nice art. However, the story totally just bombs. It’s a mess. Completely all over the...
