•January 29, 2018 • Leave a Comment

I hope everyone’s been having a pretty good weekend. I’m getting off getting slayed by the flu twice and then catching a cold and THEN catching a stomach virus….So yeah, It’s been a pretty rough 3 weeks. I thought I was going to die. Anyway….Here’s something to catch your eye….Hopefully. Anyway, I’m going to start posting more on here. I’m in the process of setting up a schedule. Once I have one I’ll post on here to let you all know when and what I’ll be posting on what days….Until then…Ciao!

Glow: The Revelations of Oriceran (The Fairhaven Chronicles, #1)Glow: The Revelations of Oriceran by S.M. Boyce

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So, I can say that I believe the MC of the book to be inspired by a real person, because I have a friend who acts EXACTLY like her. Head strong and listens to NOBODY until 11th hour and then somehow pulls a miracle out of her ass to stop things from becoming a disaster. The MC does have a reason to be jaded and angry af. With that said, I do like how the other people around her know about what’s going on and try to help her cope with her grief as well as trying to adapt to their new surrounds all in the span of like 2 weeks. A LOT happens quickly, but then the book slows down and evens out relatively quickly. I enjoyed the book. I also love the wizard who’s teaching the young MC how to control what she’s becoming and that her best friend isn’t one “woe me” type of people. When something is off, she’s let’s the MC know she’s being a dunce. The witty banter back and forth and the dark and light tones weaved in together make for an enjoyable read.

Champion for Hire (Portals of Infinity, #1)

Champion for Hire (Portals of Infinity, #1)Champion for Hire by John Van Stry

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

So this book started off slow. The MC is a bit of a middle average person that just happens to end up in a crazy world. Some of the pacing in the book is a bit fast and the relationships between a lot of the characters does feel kinda flat. I mean it’s there, but it’s a bit ho-hum, but as you start to get to the end of the book, things start adding up and eventually the MC get’s a bit of a wake up call for being such a dick at times. A lot of his aggression is explained as “magic”, but no reason as to WHY things were done to him. As stated, the book does pick up towards the end, enough that I’ve gone and purchased the second book and I’ll start on that to see if it grows or just levels out. There’s some potential crazy stuff on the horizon, and if the author gets it right, this could grow into an interesting series.

Fimbulwinter (Daniel Black, #1)Fimbulwinter by E. William Brown

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So, I’ll be straight up. I bought the rest of the series for this halfway through the book. I’m in LOVE with the characters. Also…there is a LOT of sex in this book. You don’t like adults doing adult things….you should skip this….now with that out the way. This book isn’t all sex. There is a LOT of fighting….like GoT amount of fighting and Daniel get’s hammered harder than hooker when the Navy pulls into port. This dude’s life is ROUGH. The book starts off with him having the WORST day ever to only be followed up by the SECOND worst day ever and just at the end of that, get’s a chance to start over by becoming a bad ass troll killing berserker. I mean, if you’re his enemy, he’s a walking PTSD event. The characters in this book, while eccentric are some of the most believable I’ve seen in a while. And I love them all, especially the morbid humor that comes across…Then again, I’ve been told that my 13 years in the Corps has totally twisted my sense of humor and it’s about 3 shades darker than the prince of Darkness heart. But if your like me ,this is the book for you.

I’m glad that this was referred to me (shout out…I’d put your name here but I don’t know if I’m allowed to.) If you can only pick up one book this year……….pick up your favorite….If you can pick up two, pick your favorite and this one….You will not be disappointed.

The Bathrobe Knight

The Bathrobe Knight (The Bathrobe Knight, #1)The Bathrobe Knight by Charles Dean

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ok. I’ll admit. This book was pleasantly surprising. I liked the way the book started you off wondering about the MC, and then wondering about the new world he was thrown into, and then wondering about how he’s going to get out of it. And then wondering about all the random people that keep poping up in his life that he has no idea about. And THEN wondering about how it’s going to all tie together, only to get to the end of the book and THEN wonder what in the hell is going to happen next. I literally bought all of the series after reading about halfway through this book. That’s not even a joke. They have me hook, line and sinker with this.

Ok, the review. I give 5 stars. It’s a LitRPG, so if you know what that is, you have the basic formula down. The story for this is well written, and the characters that you are introduced to are well thought out. Now they aren’t as deep as the Grand Canyon, but they are definitely fleshed out enough throughout the book to keep you interested in them. If you like meme’s, this book is FULL of them. Like, no really, I had to stop highlighting because I would have had half the book in highlights. WITH THAT SAID. They aren’t used too much. I know that sounds counter to what I said, but in today’s day and age, the way they are thrown around in the book is akin to how you would use them IRL while playing a MMORPG. This isn’t a ground breaking book by any means, and doesn’t come off trying to be one, but I will say that this. The one thing it does have going for it, it does it VERY well, and that my good friends is the interaction between characters. This isn’t going to make you cry or rage, but it is something that would make you think that the characters are real people. Also, the dude who’s shaping up to become the “villain” is playing his role well. I don’t have any strong feelings to any of the characters one way or the other, but the villain? I hope he get’s skinned alive and stuck in a brazen bull.

The Pen is Mightier

The Pen is MightierThe Pen is Mightier by J.A. Cipriano

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So this was pretty interesting. I liked the way this rolled out. Dude who’s a zero get’s an awesome power and has to figure out what he’s going to do with it. I like the way that he learned really quickly about the whole “with great power” thingy. He literally had an Uncle Ben moment in this book. Now that’s not to say that he’s Spider-man wholesome. He has his own demons, but he is two things, hard working and kind at heart. I think that’s what makes it a good story. He’s the type of person who really could rule the world, but stops and thinks about what he’s doing and the potential side effects it could have. I DO like the fact that he can think on his feet. If you look at my highlight’s you’ll see what I mean. I liked this book a lot and look forward to the next one in the series once it comes out!

Level up or Die!

Level Up or Die! (Underworld #1)Level Up or Die! by Apollos Thorne

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can say that I like where this is going. The MC isn’t a doof and actually has his mess together. Group of kids from various places on earth were selected to play in an IRL VR game….It’s not actually a game though…I mean it could be if EA made it, but I digress. These groups of kids are snatched up from their homes into a real life dungeon and are forced to play in a dungeon where death is permanent. This is a classic LitRPG in the sense that the players (slaves) are able to level up and set their stats as they see fit to beat the game (or figure out a way to escape.) The succubus in this doesn’t act like an actual succubus does. If anything she’s tired of doing things the old way, hence the dungeon. With that said, the plot isn’t something that’s new, but it is a refreshing view on a tried and true genre. If you like LitRPG’s with a MC that isn’t super smart, but lacks all common sense. This is a pretty good one. The only issue I have is that the characters come off a little flat.
