A vampire dragon zombie? Yes! Attack on the Overworld by Danica Davidson
Attack on the Overworld: An Unofficial Overworld Adventure, Book Two - Danica Davidson

Note: While this is Book 2 in the series, it works just fine as a stand alone story. Also, you don’t have to be a Minecraft fan to enjoy this tale.

Maison and Stevie return for another adventure! Though, admittedly, this isn’t one either signed up for. While Maison is visiting Stevie in the Overworld, she realizes her computer was hacked by some cyberbullies and they are most definitely up to no good! Destiny and her cousin wreak zombie havoc in Stevie’s home village.

This was quite a bit of fun and I liked it a little better than Book 1. The stakes were higher as people Stevie knows and cares about are turned into zombies by the bully TheVampireDragon555, who I will just call Vampire Dragon. It was both funny and a little disturbing for Maison and Stevie that Vampire Dragon was turned into a thinking angry zombie. Yep, you got that right – a Vampire Dragon zombie loose in the Overworld! Cue evil laughter!

I liked that the cyberbullying issue wasn’t a simple thing in this tale. Davidson does a great job of showing multiple facets to this real-life problem. Through the characters of Destiny and Vampire Dragon, she shows us a few reasons why bullies do what they do. Then through Maison and Stevie she shows what those targeted by the bullies can do. Sometimes it takes a few choice kind words and sometimes greater actions, perhaps using a sword, are needed.

While there is an obvious underlying message about bullying, the story works really well in the action and plot department. Maison really shines as a character as she feels very responsible for the bullies making their way into the Overworld and yet she doesn’t give up hope in saving the zombified villagers. She also has to make a leap of trust that could turn the tide one way or another.

Over all, it was a fun listen and makes me want to check out Minecraft and see what adventures I could go on.

I received a free copy of this book.

The Narration: Dan Woren is the perfect vampire dragon zombie! His voice for that character was excellent – a bit raspy, a bit evil, and a bit wannabe ruler of the world. I loved it! His character voices were all distinct and his female voices were definitely feminine. He sounds totally engaged in the plot as well, easily pulling off all the emotions the characters go through.

Man-eating Titans...
Attack on Titan, Volume 1 - Hajime Isayama

 

I read this manga for my grad school graphic novel class. This is my second manga (this past spring I read Orange). That was basically a teenage soap opera. This one was a sci-fi post-apocalyptic nightmare. The Titans are giant, man-eating, humanoid creatures who have taken over the world. Humans are forced to live in a walled area, for their own protection. In the first chapter, a Titan breaks through the wall and eats people. The drawings are in black & white, but still incredibly graphic. There are close-ups of the Titans biting people in half.

 

I didn't like this one much. I do enjoy post-apocalyptic stories, but this one was basically devoid of hope. I think this series is quite long, so maybe at one point, something hopeful happens.

Attack on Titan choose-your-own-adventure
Attack on Titan Choose Your Path Adventure: Year 850: Last Stand at Wall Rose - Hajime Isayama

If my bookshelves weren't already overflowing with impulse buys, this would probably be in my shopping cart, if only to see how many of the endings involve your own death or the deaths of all or most of your friends and comrades. Even a "good" ending in the Attack on Titan world would still suck to some degree.

OT: In shock

I'm sitting in front of the tv, following the news about the terror attack in Stockholm. It's hard to describe how I'm feeling right now. Stockholm was my dad's city, so in a way it's also mine, even though I've never lived there. I see images of places I've walked and where I might, in theory have been walking at the time of the attack, if I'd been out traveling. It's completely unreal. At least my whole family is safe and sound, right here, next to me. Today, it's never been more clear to me that nowhere is safe, no one is completely protected from this sort of thing. At the moment, I don't have anything more to say, except take care, hold on to your loved ones.

The image is of a little copy of one of the 'big' lions that briefly appeared in the footage from the news segment, one that my sister bought the last time she was in Stockholm, since we have passed it more than once while in Stockholm. I'm letting it symbolize my Stockholm.
