Chronicles of a Dark Lord: Episode 1 Tides of Fate Review

In Chronicles of a Dark Lord by Kisareth Studios, you take the role of an atypical ‘hero’. Rather than the usual RPG kid-turned-hero, you’re taking on the role of a kid-turned-evil who goes after even more evil than his amount of evil. I know, I could’ve totally phrased that better. You still understood though, right?... Continue Reading →

Castle in the Air by Diana Wynne Jones

Castle in the Air by Diana Wynne Jones My rating: 5 of 5 stars  This is a sequel to Howl's Moving Castle, and like it, it doesn't fail to deliver it's funny moments. The setting is slightly different, however, as it reminds you more of something just out of 1001 Nights. There's even appearances of... Continue Reading →

The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien My rating: 3 of 5 stars This was read mostly out of obligation, while I liked the story and all, I can't help but feel no sympathy for hobbits. My neighbor first introduced me to J.R.R. Tolkien's writing- I wanted to read Lord of The Rings, but he insisted (and... Continue Reading →

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicle) by Patrick Rothfuss My rating: 2 of 5 stars This book had a very, very long and unnecessary prologue. I kept reading in the hopes that something good would happen, but nope. Nothing happened. At all. I mean, sure, there were kids fighting and a some sort of maybe... Continue Reading →

Gifts by Ursula K. Le Guin

Gifts (Annals of the Western Shore) by Ursula K. Le Guin My rating: 4 of 5 stars The first part was a little strange- the way it seemed to begin one way to jump right into a story-mode flashback... and how at the end it didn't seem like an "end" to the flashback itself, but instead...

Fire by Kristin Cashore

Fire by Kristin Cashore My rating: 2 of 5 stars I found it rather disappointing, the end felt a bit rushed and the addition of the one "bad guy" made no sense (as in, I felt the story would've worked just the same without it, and it was pointless and forgotten for more than half the...

The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman

The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman My rating: 4 of 5 stars This review contains slight spoilers. The book was a bit too long (it dragged slightly in some places), and I wasn't happy with the ending, and it wasn't even because they couldn't end up together, seeing as I didn't much care for Lyra and Will's relationship;... Continue Reading →

Ico by Miyuki Miyabe

Ico: Castle in the Mist by Miyuki Miyabe My rating: 4 of 5 stars Note: This book is based on a videogame by the same name for the PS2. While it's not necessary to have played the game to understand the book, it does provide background for the story told there and is recommended to... Continue Reading →
