Dark Soul by Lexi Ander
Darksoul - Lexi Ander

This book was a struggle.
A few episodes were entertaining in some twisted way, but on the whole it was repetitious and dragging like crazy. Not for me. One star.

 

I need a drink.

To be fair, the story became so entertaining around 70%, I could not put the book down.




The suspense alone!



I never wanted this story to end!


*********************************
POSSIBLE SPOILERS BELOW
*********************************

Characters:

Sunder - an elf/cat-like alien, a drow, a Commander and Head of Royal Security. As of lately - Dah Heir and Dah Prince, with a bulls eye on his forehead for target shooting. His Mother, The Effing-one, wants him dead... like 30 years ago dead.

Gabe - his human boyfriend, a nurse at a local hospital and a tree hugger.

Ents - nee Trees, local earth vegetation
******************************

Sunder: Let's go for a stroll in a park. I want to show you Nature.

Gabe: Uh... Maybe not?

Sunder (famous last words): I promise, you'll be safe.



Gabe: Uh... OK

Sunder and Gabe (frolicking in the local park): Trees, they whisper to us!

Trees: Blah-blah-blah-blah-blah...

Sunder: Oh, a patch of Black Pollution in the dirt! I am going to suck it in and save the Trees!

Sunder *sucks*



Gabe: Oh, no! It's poisoning your soul! You're turning to the Dark Side!



Gabe: Uh... I am going to suck it off! ..out! Whatever.

Gabe *sucks and then pukes it out neatly into a plastic bag*



Trees: Oh, we forgot to tell you. Watch out for Black Pollution. It's poison! Effing-ones did it!

Effing-ones *jumping like fleas all over the place*: Di-i-i-e-e-e!



Sunder *fights back*: DIE, EFFIN-ONES, DIE!!!



Trees: CATFIGHT! CATFIGHT!!! Save the Hobbit!

Local authorities *sashaying nowhere close to the hot spot*: La-la-la-la!!



Meantime, in Australia Gabe, *snatched by Ents*: Uh, cool... birds-eye view!



Ents: DIE, ORCS EFFIN-ONES, DIE!!!*



---------------------------------------
*There is actually an episode, where "Ents march to war", complete with a local Hobbit, aka Gabe, riding the branches. Talking about LOTR back flashes!

Still reading, can you believe it? I can't :/
Chapter 6
"The hotel was a buzz of activity... After what had happened at the estate he shouldn't have gone out on his own."
ugh, DUH?

That's the heir to the throne and a Royal Commander and the head of Security talking. What had happened was the hostile species tried to scratch his royal face off at his residence. Where did he train, Enterprise?

I should have known better after reading Alpha Trine (The Valespian Pact #1).

 

Overly descriptive, repetitious info dumps every 5-6 pages are driving me crazy. I am reading the book from the beginning, I know what the aliens look like. I know why they are at odds. I did NOT just jump in on page 27 or 35 or 42. 

 

I hear a lot about magic. It's in the descriptions. It's in the info dumps. It's that "strange feeling in the stomach"  ...er, hangover much? BUT I have not seen it yet. 

 

The aliens with rosettes down and around their various body parts have followed us into this story from Alpha Trine. I am afraid to read on in case we come across some minor species, because there is no way around it - we will be given the full description with about 2-3 pages of backstory and politics. Again.

 

*frustrated*

 

...as it is, I need to finish this for sci-fi/fantasy crossover challenge :/ Good thing the book is short.
