Comments: Okay I will start with the bad points just to get them out of the way. One thing, there was a few spots where double words showed up. Example: I will will be going with you. It is a simple editing problem just needs a good once over. Another thing there was a lot of telling of the story over showing. I did a lot of this in my first book. It distracted me a couple times, but for the most part it didn’t bother me.

Now for the good stuff!

I really liked the story and I was pulled into the characters lives. The ending was a tad predictable,but still enjoyable. It is an epic journey of good vs evil on a world full of hidden magics. I like the use of the phoenix as the source of the magic and its role it plays on the world. I liked the mystery of the stones and the power they contain. Slowly throughout the story the stones powers come into play and the characters use of that power. It seemed like a good balance through the story. I gave 5 stars for the use of characters. It’s just my opinion, but I really liked them and felt a connection. I believe a good book is one that entertains you, that is the most important thing over everything else. Gift of the Phoenix entertained me.

I give it 3 1/2 stars overall

IMO: A good book that I think people would enjoy.

Game of Thrones Season 3

4 and half stars

 

I would have to say Game of Thrones Season 3 is keeping me glued to my seat. Peter Dinklage is my favorite actor in the series. I kinda wish I had read the books before I started watching the series, but since I am already through the first two seasons and deep into the third, I don’t think I will be reading them. (It’s just my thing.) Okay on to the review…

The story, the actors and the movie backgrounds, all top notch. At first I thought I wouldn’t like it, but now I sincerely love it! I like the way there are a great number of kings, each area has their own ruler. All the areas have a king, but there is 1 king that rules over all of them and it seems, all want the throne for themselves. Lots of deception, lots of hatred between the clans or houses as they are called. Sometimes it is hard to follow, but if you follow it closely it all pans out.

I give it 4 1/2 stars…5 stars if it was easier to follow.

Defiance Review

defian-x-large

 

three stars

I gave Defiance 3 stars mostly because of the beginning plot. The alien refugees needed a new home and wanted to coexist with humans. Problem with the opening pilot was they really didn’t explain it. They might in future episodes, but the pilot left a lot of unanswered questions. I know a lot of the plot from the game so I had a head start.

It’s hard to drum up new ideas so most of the time the story has ideas from other shows or books. Defiance has a cookie cutter look to it, in as it looks like a lot of other SiFi shows. Some of the aliens look good while others look like Jim Henson rejects. I don’t want to be too harsh yet because I do like it, but if the story doesn’t pick up in the next few episodes, I believe it will flop. Just my opinion.

Defiance

Defiance

Looks like a good show. I will give a review on it as soon as it air’s. I’m playing the game and it’s pretty good, but needs more content. That always happens with new games though.

Sorry I haven’t posted much lately. I have been so busy I just didn’t have time, but now that August is done I will have more time. I still have to wait for the chapter edits then a final edit before it can be published. I will finish Gift of the Phoenix as soon as possible so I can give the review, so far it is a good read. Thanks to everyone that follows my blog, to you and everyone else have a great holiday weekend.
