    Amo a Evan y a Matt. Son tan entrañables, su historia de amor se siente tan natural y sientes temor al igual que ellos a medida de que deseas todo resulte bien.

    April Wrap Up

    I only read 7 books this past month and most of them were really good!

    I re-read for the first time Deacon by Kristen Ashley. As a fun fact, the first time I read this book was in 2015!!

    I also read my first monster novel and it was really great, I liked it more than I expected.

    And I found two new favourites: Kink Camp by Adriana Anders and First and Forever by Eve Dangerfield (out May 4th)

    What was your favorite April book?

    Once Upon A K-Prom was just released this week. And I promise, I WANT to do something cute like a book aesthetic for it. But my brain is still busy going 🥺🥺🥹🥰🥰😍 So please accept this small review of a book that reads like a k-drama story— complete with a k-pop idol and the return of a childhood friend. The addition of fun things like member profiles of the fictional k-pop group make it extra fun. And if you check Kat’s Twitter or site, she has fun things like a quiz to have your bias. Super fun read.

    Even if you don’t care about Boba Fett you should at least recognise how disrespectful it is to involve Din and Luke and Grogu in HIS show. It’s disrespteful to Temuera Morrison most of all, who poured his heart into the role. The fact that you only started enjoying the story when Din shows up is NOT a good thing. You should not be praising that or uncanny valley robot Luke Skywalker being in a story he doesn’t belong in.

    You are absolutely right, and my very biased review and the fact that this series turned out to be less about Boba Fett than expected which is a pity can coexist

    I’m not a professional movie critic buddy, I’m a girl with depression who watched a show because she had nothing else to do

    Tbf, I can't even remember when New Heroes in Story Chapters have been plot-important since Book 1, maybe a bit of Book 2 that I'm forgetting. Like I think FeH writers forgot the entire reason the new heroes for story chapters were even in those chapters was that the whole thing of Embla opening gates to worlds and getting heroes to fight for them and Askr needing to go in and close the Gates to the worlds. If anything, that fact makes the whole plot of Book 6 with the sealed-off dimension stuff make less sense given Embla seemed to give royals the power to open stuff so why can Embla's power also be creating sealed-off places and whatnot?

    It feels like they forgot the initial plot of Book 1 in the following Books, but maybe that's just me.

    Book 1. It was definitely book 1 when they were last important in any way, and went on the downslope fast in Book 2 because while Veronica was attached to Muspell and implied to be providing the Heroes in their army, they never really got to interact in interesting narrative ways after Book 1; any relevance they might have had in Book 2 was relegated to Paralogues rather than actual chapters in the Book proper (and I legitimately can't remember whether the last of the plot-relevant interesting Paralogues were associated with Book 1 or Book 2).

    One correction, though: Embla's not opening gates to worlds and getting Heroes to fight for them, and Askr's not closing them. It's actually the other way around: Askr is the one that opens gates, Embla's the one that closes them, and Embla is specifically not closing the gates so that they can go through and force Heroes into contracts, forcing the Order of Heroes to go in and break the contracts since they couldn't close the gateways themselves. It's why Book 6 has that element about the villages being sealed off: Embla's closed them away from the world using the overwhelming power the Emblian royal family wields a fragment of, which Ash as Askr's retainer can nullify and re-open. Askr is the opener.

    with that said though they have definitely lost the plot and I'm just increasingly disappointed in the story, such as it is

    'Bow Before The Elf Queen' by J.M. Kearl

    Arranged Marriage but Deadly.

    Layala was destined for greatness from the moment she was born, so when it was revealed she was a powerful mage it was no surprise she was immediately promised to wed the Prince Thane of Adalon. This promise was no normal proposal of course, a magic rune tied the two together, promising their union once they both became of age... Or else.

    The King of Adalon ordered this union for more personal and vile reasons rather than the usual political power or even love. Sensing the malice behind this, Layala's parents sacrificed themselves in order to give their child a chance at freedom. Twenty-four years later, Layala has grown into a strong and beautiful woman. After hearing the tragic story of her parents demise her whole life, Layala is more than ready to enact her revenge.

    ✨ Reviews ✨

    6/6 on the gore scale. There's war, murder, violence, greed, treason and terror. Blood, death, decapitation and poisoning are all present in this book. Reader's discretion is advised.

    4/6 on the spice scale. Filled to the brim with dirty jokes, I found the intimate scenes to be a letdown. After all that vulgar language, I was expecting juicy details but we skipped most of the sex. Disappointing.

    So many wonderful quotes littered throughout the book. It was a familiar yet fresh take on the enemies to lovers trope. I absolutely love the main couple, their banter made me feel as if I were witnessing my friends fall in love rather than some characters in a book. I adore that the story was written in the third person and with 590 pages it was an action packed and enjoyable read that I recommend to any fairytale lover!

    This book indicates that there will be a second one but unfortunately, I can not find when that might be released. This book however can be found in the Kindle Unlimited library.

    I wanted to post him on his own as well, to show off this book series further.

    This is my updated design for Joron Twiner in the Tide Child Trilogy by R.J. Barker!

    Again, my apologies for the incorrect design in my first fanart of him! I really hope this is closer to how the author intended Joron to look :))

    same anon, and man i feel that so hard... i don't/never expect perfect writing from fire emblem anything (and books 3-4 are at least guilty pleasures plotwise (love the edge) or aesthetically(love the edge AND the fae)), but this entire book so far's felt like a weirdly paced amalgamation of 2 plots. like they didn't know if the game would still be online for a 7th book, so they just smooshed two separate plots together for convenience since they both have embla in it

    OH YEAH ABSOLUTELY I'm willing to cut FEH some decent slack through the early Books because let's be honest, there was some good stuff and some real ambition in there! They might have overreached sometimes and had to really rush their conclusions, but honestly the set-up and payoff of Book 3 with the "Lif and Thrasir are actually Alfonse and Veronica from a dead timeline" was excellent, and the question planted in Book 4 about whether Sharena might actually be a changeling and not actually the Askran princess? Absolutely incredible, easily my favorite thing in Book 4. Books 3 and 4 could have been great with a few tweaks (I still think they should have made Hel an imposter and Eir the true Hel since they already had the set-up with Lif and Thrasir, and having an actual resolution to the 'Sharena is potentially a changeling' thread rather than making the whole Book an unremembered dream would have instantly elevated Book 4).

    Is there really concern that FEH might not make it to a 7th book, though? Have you seen the numbers it pulls compared to other Nintendo Mobile games? It's a cash cow no offense Ash -- and they just keep putting out new Heroes to keep interest high and encourage whales to spend to get and max out their favorites or the newest meta unit so they can stay on top. Dragalia Lost announced earlier this year that it's end of service date is coming up in a little over two months, and while they'll be keeping the servers up as long as they can, the game will be ending this July. It won't make it to its fourth anniversary -- meanwhile FEH passed its fifth anniversary in February and shows no signs of slowing down. It feels to me sometimes like they never had a clear plan in place for a larger story, so they're just throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks, and they're getting lazier and lazier about it with each Book because they know the story isn't what's raking in the cash.

    But that's me being a bitter cynic.

    #answered#anonymous #fire emblem: heroes #i really do enjoy aspects of both book 3 and 4 #the ending of 4 was a huge let-down to me #since it all turned out to be a dream no one remembered #but at least it actually had me interested #book 5 was underwhelming start to finish #utterly transparent no real mysteries whatsoever #book 6 is just a mess #i'll miss you so much dragalia
