Fanfiction Review: The Ash Connection by I Am Lu

So, I mentioned a few weeks ago that I might start reviewing fanfiction, because I’ve been reading it more than published, printed books lately. Fanfiction is a weird subject. Some people love it, some people think it’s an affront to “actual” writers and others are indifferent. I am of the opinion that good fanfiction is like a good book, minus a few chapters at the beginning; the chapters that are usually used to introduce characters.

The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon

 

This book… I’ve been waiting for this book for years. Like, at least two years. When it was delayed I thought my heart would break because I had to wait another 5 months for it, and after the reveal at the end of the last book that seemed like a cruel and unusual punishment. For those of you who don’t know, The Song Rising is the third book in The Bone Season septology and the first one to end on what I would consider to be “not a cliffhanger”.  If you’ve read the first two books, you can see my reaction to The Mime Order (spoiler-free) here.

Shadowforged by Moira Katson

I recall saying that I probably wouldn’t read the rest of the books in this series and while that was true for a while, I reread the first book in the series, Shadowborn and thought to myself, “I need to know what happens.”  And so I hauled myself over to the computer and got the last two books off Amazon, moaning all the while about series that have the first book free than make you pay for the rest. While I’m not entirely sure I regret spending the money (After all, it was only about £2 for each book) I will piss and moan that I didn’t really want them in the first place and that books like that should only be 99 pence.

These books are your typical “written for teenagers by teenagers” stories that most writers write at some point in their lives. You know the ones, you’re trying to give your reader hints about what’s happened but you fail so miserably at keeping it a secret and you don’t understand why everyone knows what’s happened.  Continue reading

Shadowborn by Moira Katson.

When I first started reading this book I was wondering “What even is this book about?” Now I’ve figured it out And although it takes a while and there’s the same old back and forth throughout and no particular twists, I have to say I’m happy I read it, at least a little. Continue reading

A Song Of Shadows by John Connolly

First of all, allow me to apologise in the lateness of this review. I was sick over the weekend and as a result didn’t read as much as I wanted to. Secondly, wow. Just, wow. This book exceeded all my expectations and, as I’ve come to expect from Connolly, left me craving the next book.
