My copy of “Next Top Villain” was a birthday gift from a young friend of my sister’s who says it is her favorite book. I wouldn’t have particularly likely to pick it up for myself, because while I enjoy “what-if” stories and fairytale re-writes it wa ...more

I liked the book as a whole - enough traditional fairytale to have the feeling of roots, but with its own worldbuilding and plot variations as well - but I think two things really sold me on it.

1) Moon-roads. Not to get too spoilery but that bit of t

I felt like the plot and characterization built fairly well over the course of the book, and the setting mostly staying inside the one castle and all of its nooks and crannies and secret passages was fun for me - I enjoy when an author takes one plac ...more

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To seek the pale enchanted gold.

The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,
While hammers fell like ringing bells
In places deep, where dark things sleep,
In hollow halls beneath the fells.

For ancient king and elvish lord
There many a gleaming golden hoard
They shaped and wrought, and light they caught
To hide in gems on hilt of sword.

On silver necklaces they strung
The flowering stars, on crowns they hung
The dragon-fire, in twisted wire
They meshed the light of moon and sun.

Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away, ere break of day,
To claim our long-forgotten gold.

Goblets they carved there for themselves
And harps of gold; where no man delves
There lay they long, and many a song
Was sung unheard by men or elves.

The pines were roaring on the height,
The wind was moaning in the night.
The fire was red, it flaming spread;
The trees like torches blazed with light.

The bells were ringing in the dale
And men looked up with faces pale;
The dragon's ire more fierce than fire
Laid low their towers and houses frail.

The mountain smoked beneath the moon;
The dwarves, they heard the tramp of doom.
They fled their hall to dying fall
Beneath his feet, beneath the moon.

Far over the misty mountains grim
To dungeons deep and caverns dim
We must away, ere break of day,
To win our harps and gold from him!”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
