This review is from: Daughter of Light & Dark (Prophecy of Nitesh) (Kindle Edition)
This is a fine epic fantasy. I say epic because it's clear that this is only the first installment in what will be a long and involved journey for the heroine, Montayna. She is a powerful witch who was orphaned at a young age, and found, finally, by many powerful adepts and trained to harness her power. She learns about her mother and knows that she was a surpassing good witch, but finds, to her shock and dismay, that her father was a different thing altogether... the most powerful dark lord the world has ever known!
Positives- this author has a fine grasp of fantasy and the vocabulary used in an ancient and archaic landscape. Her pace is languid and the mood throughout is melancholy and tension-filled.
Negatives- I tend to like action-driven books... boom,boom,boom! This is more character driven, and one must not be in any hurry in this plot-line.
If you just want to sit back and enjoy a beautifully detailed world in which magic can and does rule supreme, read this new fantasy by Ms. Silverwolf.
- Aftermath and Other Zombie Shorts
on Sep. 05, 2013
Edwin Stark continues to impress with this somewhat zany approach to zombie fiction. The first short story, Aftermath, is a rather gloomy look at how a zombie apocalypse would affect society as a whole- it's very dark and does not speak well of our society.
The second story, Zombie Cab, is also chilling with a humorous twist- what if you were an honest cabbie during a zombie outbreak? Everybody deserves a ride, right? Especially if they tip well! URK!!
The third short story, The Day Zombies Roamed Venezuela, was probably my favorite, because I have read Eco Station One, which features in the story of our author, Mr. Stark himself, reporting on an EMERGENCY BLOG about zombies roaming around the station!
I really liked all three short stories- they were funny, and sad at the same time.
My advise... buy this inexpensive short story collection and read this work by a talented South American writer- some of his passages-sprinkled here and there at random like salt and pepper- are simply breathtaking!
