Review: Vampire Knight: Fleeting Dreams

Vampire Knight: Fleeting Dreams
Vampire Knight: Fleeting Dreams by Matsuri Hino
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book should be read AFTER the entire manga.
This book despite being 268 pages long is actually a fast read because…
It’s double spaced.
I shit you not. And ViZ wanted $15 for this originally.

I will admit I’m only familiar with the anime, however even so I was able to follow along with the story. Which means the main story is that banal that everything makes sense without 90% of it, or that you really don’t need these stories for anything.

The stories themselves are varied. One thing you get a note of is that there is a LOT of incest going on in the manga. Literal brother and sister pairings.

Review: On Basilisk Station

On Basilisk Station by David Weber
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This book isn’t good. I was told it was “Space Opera” but this is more like “Military Space Adventure”. Think Star Trek but with more guns death and jargon.

Finally let’s talk about the misogyny bec...

Review: Betrayed (HON 2)

Betrayed
Betrayed by P.C. Cast
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

The second book in the series continues the gross misogyny, homophobia, racism, abelism and everything else bad that you can cram in a written format.

As for the story itself. It’s also a continuation of what was started in book one and now gets into the meat and potatoes of what’s going on. The title of course tells you what you find out in this book, which should be blatant from the first book.

Overall the book spends too much time driving all over the road with concerns about Heath, to which I was just hoping he’d just up and die. He doesn’t, unfortunately in this book.
