And when the time came and I got my hands on it, oh how happy I was. Bioshock Infinite has one of the best, if not the best, stories in the gaming industry. It’s more than a story; it’s an incredible experience that will stay with me for years to come.
I was so glad to see that Dark Horse is publishing a book for the Bioshock Infinite concepts because I am an artist myself and I live to learn and I also work as a game artist and books like these always help in discovering how the big fish roll.
As for the book itself, it was as good as I was expecting it to be. Even though most of the concepts didn’t make it in the game, it’s fascinating to see how all these ideas and all this hard work carved the game into its final form. Their team is full of extremely talented artists and this aspect shows in every single piece of artwork that is inside this book. I absolutely loved it and I will try as hard as possible to buy the printed version because it’s totally worth it.

This started out as a pretty good book. I liked the setting, I love Japanese culture and yes I watch J and K dramas so I was hoping this one will shape out as one of them. But cooler. Don’t judge me. The author did a very good job with the feel of the culture and people. At least at the beginning of the book. I wanted to have a better description of the city, though. I didn’t manage to form an image for it in my mind and it kind of frustrated me, among other things that I will mention as we go on.
As I mentioned before, the book was pretty good for about 2-3 chapters. Then Katie, our lovely MC, meets Tomohiro, the hot Japanese dude, and she becomes obsessed with him. Literally obsessed.
I can’t believe the amount of stupid shit this girl did. Climbing a tall wall and screaming after a stranger like a lunatic only to remember that you’re wearing a skirt and half the school can see your underwear. Buying a bike just to stalk your current obsession BECAUSE you’re sure he’s up to something! What the hell?!
What he was hiding, why he was pushing me away.
He’s just a stranger who wants nothing to do with you. And you are a stalker who keeps on bothering him. It’s that simple.
Maybe he was onto me. Maybe he was messing with me again.
Another thing that pissed me off about this book is the love triangle. Of course we had to have a love triangle. And it’s forced as fuck. What would a Young Adult book be without a love triangle? Our lovely Katie Greene gets not one, but two guys with overly sweet smelling hair gels. It’s Japan after all; they all have hair gels and ear rings. It’s a thing there. So yeah, you get the too sweet, too kind, always there to help third wheel. You need to teach young girls to friendzone the good guys and go for the dicks. That’s how life goes.
Another thing that bothered me, small as it is, is how easy the Mc managed to have complex conversations in Japanese only after a few months of studying the language. As far as I know Japanese is a difficult language and requires a lot of time to master. Is she a genius for managing to achieve this so fast? She didn’t act like a genius throughout the part that I barely managed to read. Just sayin’.
What else didn’t I pick on? The story is silly and boring, the characters are cheesy and boring. There were some drawings in the book – they looked cool. Not really impressed for some reason. And Katie and Tomohiro’s relationship “evolved” way too fast.
“Warui,” he whispered in apology, and I knew then that I couldn’t live without him, even when he was infuriating. Which was pretty much all the time.
And the drop that filled the cup
“Suki,” he breathed, I love you, and then the softness of his lips pressed against mine and the world caught fire, everything light and f lame and burning.
Ok, so first of all, from what I know, Japanese people take their time with dropping the “I love you” bomb more than Westerners. They go more for something like “I like you” first and “I love you” when it’s really serious. I’m 50% in and he’s already declaring his love. This is complete bull.
After this point I couldn’t make myself go on with the book and I had to drop it. I have no idea if things get better later on, and to tell you the truth I don’t give a monkey’s ass if they do, and I really don’t care about any of the characters. If it were to me they should all die and save ourselves the trouble of reading these silly books. Cancel a series, save a tree. You know, important stuff.

It contains the first nine chapters of The Archived, which give you a very good overall view of what this book is about.
I have to say that I’m intrigued. I really like the idea behind The Archived. The archive, the keepers, Mackenzie, the MC, is going through her grandfather and younger brother’s deaths, and the pain that author portrays feels genuine. I like this, I really do. The character development is ok. And that’s all what I can say for the moment. I can’t really guess where the story is going. I’ll have to see.
Is this a good tactic to make us readers buy the full boo? It sure worked for me since I’m probably going to buy it in order to see what happens next.
Read my review for the entire book -> here <-(less)

We were not good people.
Trickster should be turned into a movie, and Tom Hiddleston should play Lem.
I really liked this book. At first I thought I will end up DNFing it because the start was rather strange, and I thought it wouldn’t be my kind of book. But after a while, as I read on, I started to care about the characters and the story didn’t bother me anymore. On the contrary, it became extremely interesting. The characters are the strong point of Trickster. Their complexity makes them feel genuine. Oh, and the MC is more of an antihero. I likes me some antiheroes.
If you want to give Trickster a try then go ahead. But I must warn you, if you’re looking for pink clouds and mushy bears then this might not be the book for you. They call it Noir for a reason.

Promise.
So let’s get on with it, shall we? Automatic Woman is a pretty decent Steampunk story. The beginning of it was entertaining. I really liked crazy old doctor and his swan lake ballerinas. A very nice idea indeed. BUT it did not live up to all those praises from its description. This particular phrase got my hopes up:
A volatile mix of steampunk, noir, historical fiction, and two-fisted action, Automatic Woman takes us to a place that never was yet we all know so well… the London of Jules Verne, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Jack the Ripper and Bram Stoker with a pneumatic twist.
Automatic Woman failed to deliver all that.
Despite the fact that Jolly is not my type of fellow, I kind of liked him. I can’t say the same regarding the rest of the characters though. Everyone is broken in this book. The story started brilliantly, but lost me mid-way. All the events that took place headed in a wrong direction. Jolly got extremely annoying as the story progressed. Eh.
Anyways, Automatic Woman is not a bad book. It’s not a great one either. I would recommend it if, say, you can borrow it from someone, and/or if you have nothing better to read.

Freaking weird names. Really. For everything. Couldn’t remember anything. And the thing is, Blood’s Pride has a shitload of main characters. The point of view changed throughout the book more times than I could remember. It was overwhelming, especially since Evie Manieri has a thing for overly-complex idiotic names.
I need my books to be special in order to feel sucked in and enjoy what I’m reading. Blood’s Pride caught my attention with its first few chapters, but after a while the story got boring and confusing. The dialogues, in particular, bored me to tears. I felt like the characters on which the story focused were not that important, nor entertaining for that matter. I would have loved the story to focus more on the Mongrel, since she is the coolest character between them.
And what is that monster on the cover? (and what an amazing cover it is, I might add – totally misleading, but I will get to that later)
A dragon? A bat? A bat-dragon? A dragon-bat? Doesn’t matter. I want more of whatever that is. I was halfway through, and there was no bat-monster in sight. What a bunch of nonsense!
And speaking of the cover, it’s incredibly misleading. The cover made me think that Blood’s Pride is an epic adventure starring the Mongrel chick, with a bit of romance between her and the fire-wielding Ginger dude (see misleading cover). I did not get any of that. Sadness.
No, fuck that. No sadness. Anger. Injustice. Frustration. Not cool.
Am I going to give the next book in the series a try? Nope.

The average score for Yamada Monogatari: Demon Hunter is 3.14 stars. Not so bad, right? And yet I have a bad feeling about it. I really do. Is it all just in my head?
Why am I doing this again? Oh yeah, it’s a free ebook. And the cover is nice. Oh well..
As you can see I wasn’t even able to finish it. Worldbuilding, where is the worldbuilding? And the characters are idiotic. And the story is boring and clichéd. Richard Parks didn’t even do his homework on Japanese culture properly.
Look at this grey box. Look at it carefully. What do you see? A grey box. This is exactly what Yamada Monogatari: Demon Hunter means to me.

As you know, A Natural History of Dragons is the so called memoir of Isabella, or Lady Trent (whatever you want to call her), who is between the most acclaimed dragon researchers in the book’s universe. It’s needless to say that I was very curious to witness the events that have won Isabella’s title.
There were many things that I loved about this book. Exploring the world from Isabella’s point of view was nice. Marie Brennan built Isabella’s character very well, at least in the book’s first half. I appreciated how this book started with Isabella’s childhood since I got the feeling of growing up with her. And most importantly, the dragons!
THE FREAKING DRAGONS!!!
A Natural History of Dragons is all about the dragons. Dragons in the title, cover, illustrations (yes, this book has some amazing illustrations in it – zomg, yes?), and in every chapter. (read on and witness my drama – follow the *** if you want to skip directly to my drama and miss out all the fun)
Did I mention the fact that I love dragons?
On the minus side we have the poor universe. Yes, I failed to feel the depth of the cities the characters were in. The descriptions were decent enough, and there were two sketches, if I’m correct, of some environments. However, I felt like they were not enough. I wanted to know more about the surrounding cities, creatures, cultures (the interesting ones, not the exorcise the demons in ice cold water ones), and so on.
Did I mention that I wanted more dragons?
I was expecting to get all my answers from A Natural History of Dragons. I saw that the book is about 300 pages long, and it seemed weird because the topic seems like it needs more than 300 pages in order to present the story properly. By the time I got 90% in, it was obvious that the book will either have a sequel or will disappoint.
Did I mention that I’m sick of being disappointed by stupid books?
I’m not keen to have a sequel and I don’t want to be disappointed. What I wanted was a standalone book full of dragon chasing, dragon study, and dragon riding for all I care. Just give me what you promised in the summary!
Yes. So I need to warn you, this is a series. As I mentioned at the beginning of my review, I did not know this small detail (that makes a fucking difference).
After finishing A Natural History of Dragons, I got rather pissed off. The ending upset me not because it was a bad ending, but because it was rather pointless. Many things that happened in the end proved worthless, and this has much to do with the fact that half of the book is eventless, so Marie Brennan had to stir up your desire to read her next book somehow.
Hahafuckingha the joy and laughter and sunny delight shoot me now another book that fails to deliver what it promises in the fucking summary.
Fifty points from Griff- oh wait wrong book. Two stars from A Natural History of Smugglers.
***It seems like I have found a huge mistake in this book’s title. Please allow me to fix it.
Ah much better. And accurate. Don’t forget accurate.
Why accurate, you ask? Because A Natural History of Dragons does not revolve around frigging dragons as it’s supposed to, but around the stupid village and stupid smugglers. I feel like the dragons were almost completely ignored, minus a few scenes where they attack people, some bones and empty caves. How is this book called A Natural History of Dragons again? Is it because of the original book that stirred Isabella’s desire to study dragons? Could be. Where the fuck is the dragon study I wanted to read about? Oh, well maybe the smugglers have it.
So freaking disappointing. Really. If you want to read this book because of the dragons (which is the only reason why you would) then don’t bother. It’s not what you think it is, and I doubt the sequel will be better.
3 stars (because the illustrations were nice – lucky you)
Don’t give me that look! Just look at this. Look at it!!
Doesn't that deserve an extra star? Does it not?! What about 10 of them? I still can't make myself give this book more than 3 stars, even with the 10 awesome illustrations scattered throughout it. It's not that good of a book to deserve it.

Even though I knew that the resolution would suck (and it really did), I was too curious to let it go. I will try to get the comic in print because I really want to read the story. The text in the Netgalley preview was impossible to read, so this review will be for the pretty images only. So very nice graphics, the Horsemen look awesome, I’m extremely curious to see if Vigil will publish the next Darksiders game, and I’m even more curious to see who will be the protagonist.
I would give it five stars but I’m not sure whether the story is any good so I’m settling for four stars for now. I will try to update my review once I read the story as well.
Overall, Troll Hunters looks extremely cool. It’s full of textured pages and creepy illustrations; the one below is just an example.
It is needless to say that the illustrations are the best thing about the book. I think Troll Hunters would work better as a graphic novel due to its too simplistic writing style. Also, the whole story isn’t interesting enough for a book. Or better yet, it needs a more suitable author to work on it.
The story feels clipped and dry. No character depth, shallow dialogues, very short chapters (I hate very short chapters). It is overall boring minus, I repeat, the awesome illustrations.
I would recommend you to buy this only for the eye candy. If you’re looking for great literature then you should probably skip this one.

I cannot get into the story. There’s just too much useless talk, and too few monster hunting. I’m what, 30-40% in, and it’s not getting any better. I can’t get myself to care about any of the characters. The story seems useless. I’m bored. I need more action.
And Cora, the MC, is just getting on my nerves. I give up. Many thanks to the publishers for giving me the opportunity of reading this book though. You guys rock.(less)

Long story short Emma is your typical Mary Sue who lost her boyfriend and is trying to live with it. Lost as in he died. So you get lots of emo moments, of course. Some random day at Emma’s school a mysterious new guy appears.

My thoughts I requested Broken because, duh, Frank reboot. I mean, Frank reboot. You know? What I failed to see is that the genre of the book is Young Adult. And like all those Young Adult reboots that are out this year, Broken does not disappoint. It does not save the genre from its idiotic downfall.
Broken comes with a nice gloomy start, and that made me expect a creepy book. The cover art is also amazing, and it fueled my expectations for a creepy, maybe horror-ish, book. Rule number one: never trust a book’s cover, especially if it’s Young Adult.
I actually gave up this book very early, about twenty percent along the way. A.E. Rought’s writing style is disappointing mostly because it’s simple to the point of making me think that the target audience for Broken is the typical low-IQ teenager. Which is probably true. Another thing that bothered me was the constant reminder of Daniel since the beginning of the book. Having this reminder come without a proper introduction of Daniel was making me feel like I’m reading about a random person, thus have no feelings whatsoever for Emma’s loss. And last but not least, the immaturity of the story. Or the useless blabbering and random events that are supposed to form the story.
All I could think is that Rought’s missing the point. Where’s the creepiness?? All I’m reading is a typical Twilight teen romance book. No. Just no.
To read or not to read? What are you expecting from Broken?
a. A horrific retelling of Mary Shelley's novel, Frankenstein , but with teens, lots of action and a bit of romance; b. Twilight but with a super-hot-designer-dressed Frankenstein instead of sparkling freaks.
If your answer is b, then go ahead and read the book. You’ll like it.

I’m beginning to enjoy the madness. That’s not good. Not at all.
Long story short Alyssa Gardner is the great-great-great-[lots of greats]-granddaughter of Alice Liddell, the girl who inspired Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland novel. Because of a curse that originates from Alice’s escape from Wonderland, Alyssa’s mother becomes insane and is committed into an asylum. Alyssa later finds out that there is a way of lifting this curse and saving her mother. All she has to do is follow the velvety voice that leads her back to Wonderland.
My thoughts I was supposed to like Splintered. I was supposed to like it a lot. The bugs, the blood, the gore, the creatures. Everything is so similar to a video game called Alice Madness Returns. However, as Alice Madness Returns, the book is rather disappointing.
Actually, the game disappointed me more than the book, but let’s stick to the point. I could tell that something is wrong with Splintered since the beginning. The concept of the book is amazing, and the execution is close to perfect. All is well except for this itch that keeps on bothering me while reading it. The good news is that I know what the itch is. Or itches, in our case. The characters.
Let’s start with Alyssa. She is my biggest Splintered-related itch. Why? Because, like many other young adult protagonists, she annoys the crap out of me. Theoretically I was supposed to like her. Skater girl, good morbid side, artist. However, her attitude does not work for me. Most of the times she’s acting like a brat, and then a miracle occurs and she becomes the wisest creature in Wonderland. This more than ruined the story for me.
Actually, thinking about it, there are no good female characters in this book. The lead, Alyssa, is a stuck-up teenager that is pretty much annoying all the time. The soon-to-be-ex-girlfriend bitch, Taelor, who’s a mean asshole most of the times. The crazy mum who is.. well.. crazy all the time. And some other secondary characters who don’t get much development. They are evil, jealous, manipulative. No positives whatsoever.
And now the male characters. We get the best friend, Jeb, who's always treating Alyssa like a baby. He is sticking with his girlfriend because - oh noes! - he loves Alyssa too much. Fuck logic. He’s also a douche most of the times, ordering her around, taking decisions for her and all that. Meh.
Then we have the supernatural moth boy, Morpheus, who’s keen on bedding Alyssa the moment she steps into the same room as him. He’s also busy using her all the time, plotting and being a villain. Then he almost dies and all is forgiven.
But hold on kids! There is, in fact, a good male character in the book. Her father. I really liked him, even though Howard didn’t bother with developing him too much. Even so, I think he can be considered a decent character.
Back to our three main characters. Did you notice something? One girl and two boys. Do you know what this means?
Oh yes, my friends. A love triangle.
The typical Young Adult love triangle. The human boy versus the dark sexy moth-like creature. The love triangle bugs, pun not intended, the hell out of me. I feel like it’s taking away the dark feel of the story. Hell, it ruined the damn book for me. I hate hate hate HATE love triangles and this was an extremely frustrating one. Why? This is why:
Jeb is stable, strong, and genuine—my knight in shining armor. Morpheus is selfish, unreliable, and transcendent—chaos incarnate. Impossible to compare. Yet here I am, all of those things. Both light and dark at the same time. If I were to give in to one side of me, would that mean I’d have to give up the other? My heart aches at the possibility. Somehow I feel like I need both to be complete.
She is constantly jumping from one guy to another. And, of course, both of them will do anything to please the little plum. They will even die for her. They constantly snarl, growl and wave Alyssa around at each other. Next thing you know they’ll be having a pissing contest in order to see who will end up with the little Mary Sue. Ugh. Just cut the crap and focus with the story please!
Another problem I have, and this is a minor one so feel free to ignore it, is related A.G. Howard’s writing style. She is going for an extremely complex concept, and her style is a bit too simple for it. See, for example, Laini Taylor or Ekaterina Sedia, both authors having amazing writing styles. I think their style would match the dark Wonderland theme better than Howard’s.
To buy or not to buy? Splintered is between the best Alice in Wonderland related books I’ve read so far. Howard did an amazing job with the concept of a dark and disturbing Wonderland. The story is captivating and offers a good plot twist at the end. It also offers an extremely frustrating love triangle and undeveloped characters that spoil the magic of the story. If you can ignore these negative elements, then you should totally give Splintered a try.

I mean you get lots of great elements like magic, gargoyles, vampires, a bit of steampunk, dead gods and a nice mystery. This seems like a good recipe for an awesome book.
As you can see, I dropped the book around 50%. I tried my best to finish it but it simply could not catch my attention. I had several issues with it. First of all, the start was very confusing. Shitload of information dump. Not cool. Then there’s Max Gladstone’s writing style, which I did not find attractive whatsoever. And the feeling that something was missing in the story.
I also had some technical issues, since I was reading an ARC. The switch between the different characters’ point of view was extremely confusing. The pages were missing the line break between the paragraphs when the switch of a character’s POV would occur, and many times I found myself not knowing who I’m reading about.
In the end I can only advise you to give Three Parts Dead. It has great potential and it might suit you better than it did me.

At least I’m not alone. I have Death to accompany me.
Long story short After her daughter is taken by a band of raiders, Emma leaves her family behind and embarks in a trip to bring her back. The trip makes Emma cross paths with an old lover, Arthur, who is set on winning back her heart. Together they join forces to infiltrate the kidnapers’ group in order to get Emma’s daughter back.
My thoughts Finding a good post-apocalyptic book is difficult because most of them follow the same story. 75 percent of the population is dead and the rest is suffering to survive in a post-name-your-disaster world where even toilets could bite your genitals off. This makes me judge books in this genre according to what makes them stand out from the crowd.
Fallen, book #1 of the After Trilogy, impressed me through its characters and interesting idea regarding the supernatural powers that the apocalypse brought. I was hoping that Cold Light would be a nice read, but I was badly mistaken.
My first problem is the too sudden start. I feel like I was dumped into the story with no explanation whatsoever. Emma’s daughter, Beth, was taken. Why? How? What? Deal with it.
My memory isn’t the best out there. I have read Fallen approximately one year ago, and now I don’t remember much of it. I even forgot the main characters’ names. Cold Light has minimal reminders of what happened in the previous book. It took me a while to get what’s going on in the story.
Emma bothered me a lot throughout the story. Her decisions were extremely strange, and she was constantly contradicting herself. I felt that the story was useless, and just an excuse to get Emma and Arthur together. This means that the focus of the story shifted from finding her daughter to hooking up with Arthur. I wasn’t too happy about this, but I still pushed myself into finishing the book. Or at least I tried up to a point.
Around 50 percent of the book Emma shows her true self. She is a selfish woman who likes to act like a bitch because she can. After she stupidly puts herself in danger, she gets saved by the people who once were her friends. How does she repay them? By making a PMS worthy scene. She was unbearable.
Emma’s attitude and the idiotic shift in the story made me give up the book approximately 67 percent along the way. I will not continue reading this series.

Another video game inspired graphic novel. I can’t say that I hate the idea of reading more about a game I enjoyed playing but most of the time the stories end up disappointing me.
In Dragon Age: The Silent Grove we follow the footsteps of Alistair who is to become King of Ferelden. Alistair used to be my love interest in the game (yes, I was desperate) so it’s funny to see him being all badass when, in truth, he’s just a little insecure man. I never liked his character, to tell you the truth. And having the story revolve around him… well, you can imagine. Not impressed.
I had some technical, if you can call them that, problems. Because of the images having a small resolution, the text is very difficult to read. Zooming in is a nightmare. I always have this type of problems when it comes to graphic novel ARCs and because of this I’m actually thinking of giving up the process of requesting and reviewing ARC graphic novels.

However, even the awesome graphic work can't fix the absolutely terrible story, crappy dialogues and horrible characters that belong to P.C. Cast.
Oh, I’m sorry. I just noticed that I mentioned the word “story” in the same phrase as P.C. Cast. My bad, P.C. Cast doesn’t write stories, she writes down unimportant sounds that teenagers make when they want extra attention because they realized that they have crazy hormones controlling their bodies.
The next part is taken from P.C. Cast’s intro of House of Night #1.
WOW! The making of a Graphic Novel is a complex, crazy, creative, and absolutely satisfying experience!
Seeing Zoey, Stevie Rae, Damien, Aphrodite, and the twins come to life, along with the school and even the secondary players (Nala! Dragon Lankford! Persephone!) had Kent and me tearing up with emotion, especially as we saw the different and exquisite artistic interpretations of the Goddess of Night herself, Nyx. IT'S JUST SO DAMN COOL!
