One of the Worst Books I Have Ever Read, and it really brings shame to H P. Lovecraft's door.

Review for book 2: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

I mean, the evil gods in the Lovecraftian world won't bother to bargain and play games with a mere human girl, THEY ARE TOO POWERFUL than this.

And Caitlin Kittredge tells us The Great Older Ones are neither good and evil? I mean, come on.

Just don't get me started with how The King in Yellow becomes one hell of a lame villain, it's just too insulting.

Last but not least, the heroine is a selfish cow who based her every action on her boyfriend and she is willing to sacrifice everything (e.g. the world and humanity) for the boy.

I won't bother even to rant about this book, reading it had wasted enough of my time, I don't intend to waste even more.

Nick T. Borrelli I gotta say, I love the fact that you pull no punches when you review something. We have a similar style.

Glad to here this! Though I don't see why some people can't just say 'this is a piece of shit' when they are faced by a piece of shit which pretends to be a novel.XD

Oh, you shouldn't bother yourself, I usually have a lot of patience for Lovecratian material, but this one is just a big no-no. And I can tell you the first book isn't so bad comparing with this last book.

Mizuki @Angrytuna: you are welcomed!
