Let me say that this is not all that original. This is in many ways a typical fantasy plot but what sets this apart from the many others on the selves is the quality of writing. It is just a pleasure to read. While this is the first of a series don't let fear of a cliffhanger deter you. The book does set up for the continuation of the saga but it ends on a satisfactory note and I did not feel cheated by the untold parts of the story. Yes, I'm partial to Bildungsroman. Novels about the coming of age of heroes are infinitely more fascinating to me than the tales of subsequent heroics. I want to know how the hero is made.

The Necrostar is threatening to destroy all of Earth. The only person who can stop it is the Titan’s Beast Boy. With the team behind him, will he be able to save the day? The narration by Tim Gerard Reynolds was excellent. He is incredible at voicing the different characters and delivered the amusing lines extremely well. I would definitely listen to another novel narrated by him. The production quality of the novel was good as well. I would recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys fantasy coming of age stories with complex, in depth story lines. Now, my description is obviously extremely short and vague. But don't let it fool you, this story is rich with character and adventure. It is witty and moving. I was floored by the writing of this somewhat unknown author and even more blown away by the amazing performance of the narrator Tim Gerard Reynolds. Dawn then decided to take matters into her own hands. Flipping through Hank's yearbook, Dawn managed to gain details on the said coach's whereabouts and went to pursue him. She approached Vincent's front door that night and demanded that he confess his crimes. Refusing to be turned away, Dawn barged into his home where she was eventually held at gunpoint. Managing to disarm him, she engaged in physical combat but was outmatched. Close to being shot, Hank arrived and prevented it from escalating. To Dawn's surprise, she found further incriminating evidence on Vincent's computer and refused to leave when asked to, making her present for when Hank beat him to death. After they returned home, they became intimate and shared a night of lovemaking. Despite that, the next morning, Dawn told him that it would be better to keep their relationship professional and act as if nothing ever happened. [1] Becoming Dove [ ] I think a lot of this meandering around was meant help with laying groundwork for world building but it was insanely overdone. There were so many sections that either didn’t need to be there at all or could have been cut down to be more concise and readable.No. Dawn of DC is not a reboot. These new comics are not wiping pre-existing history. Everything still exists – they’re just new comics and stories within the DC Universe. What do you need to read before Dawn of DC? Things like this really only served to bog down the story overall and it kind of took away from the better parts. When there was some action going on, it was good. I really enjoyed seeing Aedan’s genius and mischievousness at work A brand-new adventure with sky-high action, adventure, and intrigue begins in Hawkgirl by Jadzia Axelrod ( Galaxy: The Prettiest Star ) and Amancay Nahuelpan ( Wonder Woman ). Velike su sličnosti priče s onom Rothfussovom o Kvotheu. No i u Strahu mudraca se ništa tektonsko ne događa, ali sam svejedno tih 1000 stranica teško ispuštao iz ruku, dok sam ovdje svako 'otkrivenje' ili tajnu dočekao nekako mlako i nezainteresirano. One night, she was encouraged to spend that night at Hank's apartment and Dawn accidentally stumbled across strange red and blue suits. Soon after, she was entrusted with recorded footage of Hank and Don fighting as Hawk and Dove. Questioning the reason behind his actions, Hank opened up about his molestation as a child, by his coach, Vincent, including years of bottled-up anger. However, she was disappointed to hear that he never sought revenge on his abuser.

The prose was fine, just some sentences sounded a bit stilted. The rest of the way it was just right to keep me going.I've been going through some of GR's 2016 underrated fantasy list, and boy is it a treasure trove! As for this book, my primary impression upon completing it was enormous regret that book two was nowhere in sight. That is how much I enjoyed it.

Quibbles: Long boring descriptions of how to make a bow, a sword, etc. The training at the academy was summarized too much. He did this. He went there. He learned that. It compares unfavorably with how the warrior Thorne trained his boys to fight in the Brotherband: The Invaders. For one example, Thorne used nets and rolling logs to develop balance and awareness of footwork in swordplay. A central theme is overcoming demons forged in childhood. Aedan's love-hate relationship with his father felt credible, if sad. (His father beat him). There are some scenes that involve a deity called The Ancient One, with messages reminiscent of Christian teachings (but not overtly), and a major act-of-god. Spirit World is part of the We Are Legends initiative, which sees new series inspired by Asian culture. An epic fantasy would have been great. Instead it was about dysfunctional childhood and adolescents in school.And as always, Tim Gerard Reynolds brings an absolutely brilliant delivery, making it all the more amazing. SO glad this got properly matched with a narrator equal to the material! It didn't end on a cliffhanger, some of the challenges the main character faced have been resolved, but it's absolutely not the end of the story, and I hope that the next one has a bit more action and faster pacing. I expect that it will due to where he's going, and the impending war his realm has been prepping for during much of the book. A few years ago I reviewed Anthony Ryan's _Blood Song_ here on Goodreads. That review gets me letters at least once a week asking me to recommend other books that are just as good as _Blood Song_, _Name Of The Wind_, and the rest of the titles I mentioned in that review. Dawn of DCis a publishing initiative by DC Comics to create dozens of jumping-on points for their superhero comics in 2023. It gives new and old readers a place to start reading the publisher’s much-loved heroes and presents lesser-used characters with a renewed push.
