  • The Rostical Users - Sceldrant's Comet on Nov. 15, 2016

    Took me a while on the first chapter to get use to the writing, but after that I couldn't put the ebook down! Lol. Unlike some people who reviewed this story, I love Lance's character! Its so perfect for me and it reminds me of and someone else I know, put together! So it was really halarious to watch him say things so stupid, and doing things his way all the time, and Mr. Rogers kept his character up to be the same person until the end, even though Lance tried to be nice sometimes it always came out way better!!! The only thing i didnt like about the story was the very very very long chapters, but i told myself to look past that and keep on with tge great story. So i did I am currently reading the second book now and cant wait to read the third!
