Will Aella find her true place?

Book Review: Sword Sisters: A Red Reaper Novel

Sword Sisters: A Red Reaper Novel
by Tara Cardinal, Alex Bledsoe

 

I’ve been a fan of Alex Bledsoe for sometime so this one was a must-read for me. I haven’t read Tara Cardinal’s work but I’m going to after this one. In the world of the Sword Sisters, Reapers are demon-human hybrids, which means they can lean towards their humanity just as easily as they can show their demonic darkness. Young Reaper Aella is predicted to be the last Reaper, and when Aella flees Raggenborg in search of a boy, she finds a human who loves and accepts her even after seeing her dark side. The story is excellent and penned so  beautifully. Kind of like a coming of age story with a twist. It was fun to read and I like books that mean something, and the whole idea behind SWORD SISTERS was about finding your place in a world where no one seems to accept you. To me, it’s the ultimate heroic pursuit—and when I like the main character, I enjoy following the story.

Cast aside by her mother, tormented (literally) by her father, feared by humans and despised by most of her own kind, Aella is determined not to care. Not to care what they think, not to care if they like her, not to care about anything or anyone. Just so long as no one tries to touch her or imprison her again, Aella couldn’t care less. Until…he pulled an arrow from Aella’s back and kissed her cheek. Until…she carried Aella home and stood between her and a giant spider. And a rioting mob. Until…they came to Aella looking for help. Aella, daughter of demon and witch, must find herself and forge her own route to a destiny she doesn’t want to believe and others simply don’t want. At first a heroine in name alone, Aella discovers she has the strength and the heart to control her demonic lineage and truly wear the title–hero. She also finds something even more valuable: friendship. Amelia, her Sword Sister, isn’t just worth dying for. She’s worth living for.

DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth: Not Divergent Enough.

I’m starting reviews on the website. I watch a lot of movies, TV shows and read loads of books, my whole life revolves around it, so I figure why not.

DIVERGENT Book Review:

For the record I’m a huge fan of THE HUNGER GAMES and I realize that sometimes when you finish books like this, you want more. I’m guessing that’s why author Veronica Roth got on the dystopian bandwagon. I read a few dystopians past couple of weeks, and most notable being DIVERGENT and THE 100. Divergent for me was a good enough read, but where THE HUNGER GAMES was a total five star book for me, DIVERGENT only came to about 3.5, reason being that while the story was complete and there were no faults as such, it just wasn’t nearly as good as The Hunger Games. The story was there, the actions scenes were good and there’s a whole lot of them, which is great too but I couldn’t feel for the characters much. It was fine, for someone who wants a light dystopian read, but just make sure the writing is nothing like the Hunger Games books. I’m still totally going to see the movie though. In my opinion, Hunger Games was the most unique book I’ve read in so long. It was abstract, it talks about underlying issues, about societal norms that shouldn’t be norms in the first place, and about the potential of human ruthlessness. DIVERGENT on the other hand, is about the plot that is mentioned in the blurb and nothing more, which is fine for a book I suppose, but not enough to make it a memorable enough read.

In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue–Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-old must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is–she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself. During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are–and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she’s chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she’s kept hidden from everyone because she’s been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, Tris also learns that her secret might help her save the ones she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

Hemlock Grove Season 2 Premiere Date Announced!

Okay so I admit, Hemlock Grove isn’t the best show in the universe. But this is the thing about B-movies: they’re like a train-wreck you can’t help watching. But there’s a trick to watching B-movies and TV shows that are made like B-movies—you see the underlying message, you enjoy the endless gore  and you root for the hot people running around half-naked on screen. Hemlock Grove is an Eli Roth production, so this is B-movie style TV show at its best.

Personally, I love the Brian McGreevy book more, it has all the elements of abstract, surreal writing and I love the idea of that artistic style being teamed with horror, a genre that’s often just thought of as a ‘genre’ and as though no one can produce any ‘real’ fiction from it. But the show is directed by McGreevy and while he’s tried to retain the surreal nature of the story, sometimes the terrible acting can be a little annoying.

Thankfully, Bill Skarsgard and Dougray Scott are enough reason for me to keep going *wink*

So the date for Hemlock Grove Season 2 Premiere is April 19, 2014!

I’m actually excited to see the new direction the show’s going to take and *spoiler alert* now that Roman is the big shot vampire boss thing. I hope he gets really evil. Like really really evil, and I want to know how things work out for the Rumanceks and if Peter and Roman are going to have at least a few bloody fist fights.

So who’s your favorite character?
