This is going to be one of those book reviews wherein I don't feel like I have much to say. It all sort of boils down to this for me: Reading this book feels like watching an anime. Its resemblance to anime is both its strong point and its weakness. On the plus side this book was very easy for me to...

The world is polluted and it is only getting worse. The Shogun Yoritomo rules with an iron fist, taking whatever pleases him.

I actually had a lot of fun reading Stormdancer, which seems a strange thing to say about a story of people having one horrible experience after another against a background which is as chokingly dystopian as they come. I think it's because it's got style, in a really cool comic strip / anime kind o...

I’ve been putting off writing this review for days, because I just don’t know how to write it. How do you write a review of a book you found so amazing, so beautiful, so great it reminded you of your love for reading? Stormdancer is one of those books for me, a book that had just everything I love! ...
