I remember being obsessed with Yugioh growing up. I don't know much about James Bond, but I definitely know some things. Other than that, it seems like this was just ripped right from season 1 of Yugioh? I'm definitely confused, but hearing the character's voices in my head made me smile. Also, the formatting needs some help to make it less confusing. To the author, keep trying! You probably had a lot of fun doing this :)
The start of two scripts inspired by great people
While well written, at times it was repetitive and too long-winded. I loved the imagery and the creativity, but it got tiring to read at times. The story is unique and I really enjoyed the little interjections from Maia's point of view. It gave it a whimsical feel to me. I actually loved that aspect.
The creatures, the characters, the villains... they're well-rounded and interesting in themselves. I enjoyed watching the story shift and change. I just really wish it wasn't so long-winded.
That being said, I do look forward to more books by this author in the future. With a mind as creative as hers, I would love to see where her books could take me.
Discover a beautiful and deeply haunting tapestry of love, pain, magic, and healing.
In a single moment, Maia’s life would never be the same. Because when her miraculous virgin birth gifts her a blind, albino hermaphrodite, she never could have foreseen the fate that lay in store for them both. Adopted by a pack of coyotes and seeking refuge deep in the woods, a sheltered cottage and unseen helpers give Maia and her baby Justice a new life together.
But the world of the early twentieth century isn’t kind to unwed mothers or children like Justice… and when they’re forced to leave their hidden cottage, Maia finds herself struggling to survive in a man’s world. Her only solace lies in Justice’s incredible gift – an otherworldly ability to weave colorful tapestries that can predict the future.
But Justice’s destiny will call them, and together they will share her gift, bringing freedom to those whose stories need to be told. And as Justice opens hearts and minds through her magical loom, she discovers the life-changing impact that she was fated to share with the world.
Artfully weaving together a powerful and deeply moving story that touches on profound themes of love, transformation, motherhood and healing, The Tapestry is a magical contemporary fiction novel where the emotions pour out of each page, offering readers of all backgrounds a heartfelt experience that will stick in your mind long after you finish reading.

The introduction to this world is perfect and captivating. There are so many questions to ask, but none that hinder the reading experience. It rather enhances it.
The art is really pretty and well done, and I love all the colors. The pacing is perfect and exciting. I really enjoyed being introduced to the characters. Ereya feels like a strong character; even though she’s a princess, she’s willing to put herself in danger to save others, and she doesn’t let her past trauma stop her.
Toward the end, the weapon used is a lot like the quinque Mado uses in Tokyo Ghoul. That was a super cool and exciting weapon to see, and my bias and love for Tokyo ghoul helped me really enjoy the last bit of the book.
I look forward to the next.
One Planet. 7 Houses. The 200 Year War. A ban on expanding and colonizing other planets based on religion and prophecy. The creation of chimeras, lab-made animal-human hybrids and their struggle for emacipation. And a looming cosmic doom. All that has to be solved by the soldier and princess Ereya of House Dorrean. Will she succeed or will a fate worse than death await her?
Roeyan Saga Volume 1 contains chapters 1-5 and the extra Noble Houses.
I've found that I really enjoy stories like these, true accounts of people's history. Often, history is told from a cold point of view, but stories like these make it personal. History is always something to learn from, not repeat.
I love this story. The situations Gus found himself in, and not even by his own hand, he was lucky, quick, and smart to find a way out. Knowing the people in this story are real leaves more of an impact than any other fictional story.
Being born in 1920’s Depression-era Mississippi is a hard life. It can be even harder if you are Black. Gus, born of two worlds. With a black mother and a white father, the law of the times dictated, access to one and not the other.
Though he has a loving family, ongoing tensions between him and his mother push Gus to make a critical decision. At twelve years old unbeknownst to his family, Gus leaves home early one morning long before the rooster crows. But he is not prepared for the dangers and life-threatening encounters that unfold. Being alone and Black in 1930’s Jim Crow Mississippi could often feel like being the hunted. Gus’s struggle to survive spark an awakening of his latent extrasensory gifts. Sleeping abilities that help to guide him; but all life lessons come at a cost. Will the lessons learned be enough to save him?
This quick book of poems has a really nice message to it. With each word, you can feel Rehman's heart and emotions as they recount moments in their lives and share them with the reader, hoping to maybe help them in return, to let them know they aren't alone.
3 stars :)
Review: A Colossal Injustice: A Griffin Knight Corporate Murder Mystery (The Griffin Knight Series Book 2) by Miguel Angel Hernandez Jr.
I will say I enjoyed this book so much. Detectives with hackers and bio-engineering (in a way)? That’s way cool, and I appreciated every second of it. This book is definitely a large leap in the right direction for this series, and I’m so excited to see what will come next. 5 stars.
What if a deadly night in Seattle is just the beginning?
I haven’t even been in the city for 48 hours, and it’s already obvious that the information in front of me doesn’t add up.
As a homicide detective, I’ve seen it all, but this murder is different.
To kill someone in this manner is often a crime of passion or a deeply personal attack, and yet the evidence suggests otherwise.
Why was he targeted? How is it connected to Seattle’s biggest megacorp? Was it someone he already knew? What if this is the start of something so much bigger?
The only thing I do know is that I need to find out who did this fast in case others are also at risk!

Honestly? I liked this one more than the first. I read the first one a few years back and I loved the way it was written, but this one had MORE. It was BETTER in a way I can’t describe. It’s not one of my FAVORITES, but I really, really enjoyed it.
I think Stephanie Garber has one of my favorite ways of writing. It’s art come to life in a way I can appreciate. It’s like a breath of fresh air, and my gosh, I needed some of that.
