This is a simple, standalone book that is well written, enjoyable, and imaginative. Romy is a teen… alone in space!! That is really the full set up and to a degree, story. The plot takes a while to really ramp up or have a clear direction, but it’s short and fun regardless.

(Book 1 review, Book 2. This is the last book in the trilogy)
Ah, Kneupper. I love this series, I really do. I was so excited for this book, even if the warning signs were all there. And it didn’t suck, really. I had fun. This has always been a guilty pleasure of mine anyways.
But you nearly had it all, you bozo.
Way to blow it.

(Book two in a series. Book one is here. Book three is here.)
O Kevin, O Kneupper! I know it is tempting to name your books fancy things, but considering book three is just ‘Adversary’, maybe you shouldn’t have jumped onto naming book two… Chaos Umpire Sits. It’s a little, well. A little much, isn’t it Kev?
I just finished book three, speaking of, so it’s time for a full write up of book two.

(Book three. Here is two and one.)

(Book one. Book two is here, book three is here.)
Good, well written, except for the parts where it wasn’t. Vastly better if there weren’t breaks every other chapter to spend time with four cardboard cutouts of soldiers who mission I ultimately do not care for and root against actively. The Perch is interesting though. And I really wanted Jana to mack on some vaguely evil, untrustworthy angels, so there’s that.

(This is about book 3 in a series. Book 1, Valhalla, can be found here. And Book 2, Ragnarök can be found here.)
Three stars is my go to for hard to place books. So, welcome Gu… Guðsríki… Welcome to book Hell.
I had a lot, lot of problems with this book. All of Ari’s ticks in the last books that I could overlook came back in full force, leading to a very long (and very negative review). Buckle in.
Continue reading “Guðsríki’s strengths cannot overcome its weaknesses”
This is a very meh book. I didn’t particularly want it to be, but it failed me in every way. There was nothing really going on, the writing was dull, the worldbuidling was clearly making an effort but explained poorly, and nothing felt interesting, legitimate, or real.
The characters are diverse, but even in the reviews that’s all anyone can talk about. Yay for diversity! Not much to cheer about otherwise.
