All My Friends are Superheroes
All My Friends are Superheroes
Price: £2.99

3.0 out of 5 stars too many asides and interruptions to make this really good., 5 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really interesting premise, but kind of uneven. Well-observed, tongue-in-cheek superhero inventiveness. And, the main story was quite moving. But, too many asides and interruptions to make this really good.

This review is from: The Relic Guild (Kindle Edition)
Really interesting debut: an interesting, gothic fantasy world with cool magic, good action and a fascinating premise. There are some ups and downs in the pace, but it shows great promise for the future of the series. (It's going to be a trilogy.)

Interesting idea, but ultimately disappointing. The story didn't hang together as well as I would have liked. Certain really interesting features were glossed over or ignored, and ultimately this failed to deliver on what was a really interesting premise.

This review is from: Dare Me (Kindle Edition)
Interesting. Didn't *love* it, but an interesting look at the psychology of fiercely ambitious, competitive and also insecure teenagers.

An interesting, short polemic on the dominance of the Ivy League on American society, media and politics.

Excellent album - builds on their sound, excellent songs. Works very well as a whole and as individual songs.
Southern rock done right.

A welcome return to the Vampire Chronicles! It's not perfect, but it does take us back to the characters and themes of The Vampire Lestat and Queen of the Damned.
I enjoyed this a lot. There are some quirks that didn't quite work for me, but if you're a fan of the series, then I'm sure you'll enjoy this.


Messenger's Legacy

4.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent novella from Brett - not his best, 5 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another excellent novella from Brett - not his best, as I think I preferred the first two. Nevertheless, Brett's series remains one of my top five fantasy series. Introduces us to a new major character, expands the world and coreling bestiary.
Very good.

This review is from: The Messenger (Kindle Edition)
A good short story introduction to Newton's new series. I still need to read the novels, but this is really interesting. Doesn't give too much away, gives us an idea of the new world. Well-written, too.

Interesting introduction to the pre-Revolution Boston (with magic). Bit too short to form a stronger opinion than "this is interesting and promising". But it is both of those things.
