My advice to those who don’t like long descriptions or info-dumping is this: don’t read fantasies that introduce new worlds. The reason is because world-building in these types of books is very important and is something upon which the author spends a good deal of effort. You cannot introduce a new world without descriptions or world-building information. It just can’t be done. If an author tried, the reader would be so lost, they wouldn’t be able to follow the story and then they would really complain. No. The world in which the characters live is essential and cannot be ignored.
""Good night," she replied sassily.
"Yeah, right!" she said sassily and mounted.
[...]but on the inside she was still that same sassy, clever, little girl[...]
"You can laugh all you want. I will figure this out!" she said in a sassy tone.
Damnit enough with the sass!" 1 comment
"Let's play the foreshadowing game:
1) The "chinuk" randomly showing up and just as randomly disappearing, leaving a book behind. Bets it'll show up later on and help Chalice? (And the book he dropped also plays a large part in the story)
^^ was right about this status update [which was deleted along with my previous pre-review. sadface.]"
2) The wolf pack that randomly stalks them and just as randomly leaves after Chalice and the pack leader have a staring contest? Bets they'll somehow help them in the future? (Possibly to win some sort of war/battle)"
3) Hooves Bane/Nipha is just so randomly introduced. Bets this pretty horsey will come up again in the future? (Bonus if it becomes Chalice's own horse)"
