Just One More Chapter

Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.

I'm just trying to light up the world as much as I can one SciFi/paranormal/fantasy/space opera/time travel book at a time. 


mixed emotions on another read

Warcross - Marie Lu

Virtual reality, fierce hackers, futuristic tech, spies, subterfuge, taboo love and a pretty cool female MC? Heck yeah! I was SUPER excited to get my hands on this one and here's what I have to say on the matter:


Fact... the World building was everything!! It was surreal and substantial, gritty and ingenius. The neurolink Virtual World and tournament world were beautifully tactile and incredibly imaginative ...in this respect Warcross was phenomenal!!


NOW...The Charater Development??


The character depth on the otherhand...well that was pathetically anemic, deficient, paltry. I was so disappointed that I almost started skimming....skimming?!? Well, I did say almost (and meant it) BUT I persevered and you know what I found?? Even with the predictable plot twists and the severely lacking character development, I found a decent book. Was it everything I was expecting when I first dove in? NO! Decent might sound harsh or hyper-critical BUT all in all it turned out to be fast paced, stunningly imaginative and quite entertaining. This just wasn't the grand slam I thought it was going to be...thought you should know.
