Reading progress update: I've read 92%.
Ravage - Iain Rob Wright

 

Coming to the end, some of the humor in this is face palm stuff that has me snorting.

It's horribly executed, but keeps making me laugh.

 

Someone planted a bomb on the ship, he was going to be executed, and managed to hand the detonator off to another guy about to be executed along with a woman.  Damien sets off the bomb and covers Anna with his body and hangs on so they don't both go sliding off the now sinking ship.

 

They get up, and she asks:

 

"What's the plan, Rambo?"

 

Damien shrugged.  "We could go to the bow and cuddle. I could shout 'I'm King of the world'?"

 

Anna frowned.  "I'm more of a Terminator 2 kind of gal."

 

Damien held his hand out to her.  "Then come with me if you want to live."

 

 

I don't know if the author is having a difficult time wrapping up the story or if he just wants to use all the famous lines, or maybe that was the goal from the start.  Earlier in the story some one yelled "Game over. man! Game over!"

 

At least we don't YET have Conans famous line:

"To crush your enemies -- See them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women!"

Ravage - Iain Rob Wright

ARMAGEDDON! LOL

 

OMG, I'm dying here.

 

I don't think the book is supposed to be funny, and it's not the best written thing out there, and it's #3 in the series, but the plot holds you if can deal with the writing. Not a lot of spelling or grammatical issues, just feels like young writing.

 

The zombies are swarming.

 

But this:

 

We're screwed,” Jimmy fretted.

We're like hamsters up a butthole.”

 

Made think think of this:

and I can't stop laughing.

I'm going to spend the rest of the day yelling ARMAGEDDON! at odd times.

LOL

I don't know how to add a video, but the link just takes you YouTube.

Sorry for the weird font and big paragraph spaces.  I typed it up first in an open office doc.

Free square
Extinction: An Apocalyptic Horror Novel - Iain Rob Wright

 

This one doesn't really fit anywhere, so I'm going to use it for the Free square.

 

Some weird stuff with the angels at the end there, unless Damien is something else.  I feel like we were told about him, like his chapter at the end was a continuation of his story, but I don't remember him showing up.

 

We're not left with much hope.  Some, maybe enough, but not a lot.

 

And I want to know what happened to Alice, 'cause that was a shitty thing to do to her.

And do the 3 amigos ever make it back?

Modern Masters
Legion: An Apocalyptic Horror Novel (Hell on Earth Book 2) - Iain Rob Wright

 

I got sucked into another series.

 

This one is a little repetitive, as most of it is the same story as the previous book except told from a different characters point of view.  Tedious in some cases, like the ship captains, interesting in others, as in the case of Vamps and his buddies.

 

New information is added as well from other characters so it's not a complete re-telling, as well as a GLARING contradiction from Daniel.

 

In book one, unless I'm mis-remembering (which is possible as numbers have a tendency to be floaty unless I wrestle them down and chain them up), there were 6,000 gates scattered across the world.  According to THE SAME GUY, there are 666 to correspond with the Adversaries of God, which have nothing to do with the angels that were banned from heaven. 

 

We'll see if the number changes in book 3.

Doomsday
The Gates: An Apocalyptic Horror Novel - Iain Rob Wright

 

God had placed and sealed 6,000 'gates' on Earth after chucking Lucifer and his minions out of heaven.  

 

Lucifer and The Red Lord (we don't know who that is) have somehow managed to open them and they still hate humanity and want to see us wiped from the face of the earth.
