Another year’s over… and a new one just begun. In years past, I’ve done a seperate post for my 2021 Reading Retrospective and 2021 TV & Movies Retrospective, but… that seems silly. Let’s do them all together this year!
I really should add board games and Steam games to my lists. Not sure how to do that though. We’ll see.
But really… it’s just that kind of story.
I’m really loving the deeper backstory, the eternal competition, the real feeling that no matter how this story ends—no one ever makes it out alive in the end.
After the last few, I thought we were safe. That thing would escalate, sure, but that perhaps they’d all get to live happily ever after.
So much death and blood. So many twists.
And onward we go!
I love the contrast with the usual 1, 2, 3, 4–plus the very real ‘New’ status quo. Reading this on New Year’s Eve is just a bonus.
So where are we.
Persephone is bonkers, but who can blame her. The Great Darkness might be coming… or perhaps Anake has been lying for thousands of years? The ‘now whats’ issue where everything falls apart. Onward!
Learn what your city has forgotten. What men of power have forgotten time and time again, throughout history—that there is always, always something mightier.
Foundryside was quite a ride, with an awesome magic system, great characters, and some nice not entirely too dark bits of revolution going on–and hints of something more. Shorefall takes all that… and turns it way the heck up to 11.
All that escalated quickly. Laura is back, the baddie is revealed (who if not necessarily why), and everything is just so very colorful.
A huge step up from Volume 3. Glad to have read it.
A touch disappointing. I already missed Luci and now barely any Laura, just flashbacks. I keep expecting the Gods to do the God thing and be no-longer-dead.
We do get some neat backstory and introductions though!
How puzzling all these changes are! I’m never sure what I’m going to be, from one minute to another.
Well that’s a weird book.
I’m sure I’ve read it before and I know I’ve at least seen the Disney version, but apparently I haven’t reviewed it, so here we go.
That’s a weird book.
A fiery start and an even more bonkers escalation. I love the idea behind the worlds so much, especially as we learn more. The art is fantastic, especially that party scene. Pages and pages odd of colors.
