Review: Gork, the Teenage Dragon: A novel by Gabe Hudson
Gork, the Teenage Dragon - Gabe Hudson

 

This is a DNF for me. I'm not a fan of the writing style, it's rather juvenile and reads like someone's high school English homework. The humour wears off very quickly, there are only so many times "my scaly green ass" can be found humorous or used as a descriptor. There was so much repetition throughout the book that it started to get on my nerves. At times it felt like every other sentence started with "Now, ..."

 

Not a book I would recommend.

Review - Trials of a Teenage WereVulture by Emily Martha Sorensen @CleanYAFantasy
Trials of a Teenage Werevulture (Trilogy of a Teenage Werevulture) (Volume 1) - Emily Martha Sorensen

I have been reading Emily Martha Sorensen’s wonderful stories for a while now.

Take a look at Trials of a Teenage WereVulture and you will see why.

 

Cover by Rebecca Frank

 

Trials of a Teenage Werevulture

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY TEASE

 

“Oh,” she said. She sounded disappointed. “That’s not really a clan. That’s, like…a club. You might as well join Were Scouts.”

 

(24% on Kindle)

 

MY REVIEW

 

 

Looking for a fun, paranormal story about a young girl coming of age in the wereworld? Look no further.

 

Something’s wrong. The turning wasn’t what Lisette hoped for. Her wings are all wrong. She’s not a werehawk, she’s a Werevulture.

 

She went to Werepedia to see what’s what. She’ll be going to Flyer’s Education for flying lessons.

 

She loved her best friend, Kegan, and didn’t judge her for being different, but when she became different too, her feelings became mixed.

 

What clan would accept her? Let’s go to Wereconnection.com and find out. She may be the odd man out, but I have a feeling she’ll show us how valuable she would be to any clan.

 

We have a vampire pumpkin, wereporcupine, wereplatypus, werebutterfly, weretrees….and all the normal vampires, centaurs, mermaids and such.

 

Her instincts are good and we will find out how good as she investigates the Rarity Clan, who wanter her to join up with them.

 

It is Emily Martha Sorensen’s ability to surprise me with her creative writing and smiles throughout, even in the tough times, that keeps me reading her work. She has a wonderful ability to create such marvelous characters.

 

We can anticipate many things to come, but Trials of a Teenage WereVulture is filled with wit and humor, evil and danger. The creatures spark the imagination and I am left with a feeling we are all special in our individual ways. We all have much to offer to those who enter our lives.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Trials of a Teenage WereVulture by Emily Martha Sorensen.

I'm feeling old
Everneath - Brodi Ashton

*sigh* It is evident I'm not the public for this book. While some of the alogoric content inside this was something that is important that is adressed, the whole felt all over the place. I think the part most inconsistent was Nik herself: selfish woe is me then all goody sacrificing. It could be that most of what I found annoying, or had me raging, was just age related stupidity, but *shrug*

 

I had also some specific issues: Jack is such a Stu. Somebody should have called Nik's dad on his bulshit: maybe he's trying, but he sucks at it and a chat was owed. No one really adresses how messed up Nik's little brother must be (I can't even remember his name).

 

At any rate, I'm likely done with this genre.

Fun little side story
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Free Comic Book Day 2017 - Kevin Eastman,Bobby Curnow,Tom Waltz,Cory Smith

Too much exposition sometimes, which is why I knocked off a star, but that's because I've read most of the series this ties into, and I knew all of what they were talking about.   It's probably more useful for what they're really hoping for: new readers who pick this up for free and like it enough to start reading the series. 

 

And me complaining about this one thing really shouldn't stop anyone from picking this up if they were interested.   It wasn't that bad, and I really, really love this series which is why I picked it up in the first place.   And this feels very much like that series: the same warmth and banter is there.   That same focus on the Turtles as a family, and not only that a family who wants to do good in the world in any way they can. 

 

The art is just as slick and fun as in the original series.  None of this should be a surprise: it's the same writers and artist.   And I'm glad I picked this up and read this, because it's not a series I follow regularly so much as something I pick up on the sales at Comixology.  I tend to prefer reading a whole volume of this at once, thus the sales, the volumes, and the binging when I get them.  So this was a nice way to keep up with the series.

Still loving this series
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vol. 15: Leatherhead - Dave Wachter,Mateus Santolouco,Tom Waltz,Kevin Eastman

I wanted to finish this because I love the storyline, and I love the art.   I am still loving the story, as the world develops, and changes, and the characters change along with everything.   They grow, they make decisions that others don't agree with, but they all stay true to themselves while doing this.   Navigating what others expect, and want, and what they're willing to give is toughest for Michealangelo right now.   

 

He's not willing to accept their father's position as The Master of the Foot Clan, and so has moved out.   He teams up with his brothers in this volume, but he's clearly still torn: it's not as if he wants to be out on his own, but he just can't stand to be with the Foot Clan. 

 

And this is the origin story of Leatherhead, an exploration of Krang's island, where he had started to terraform the Earth, and has a storyline about Kitsune and Apolex, including some intrusion by another of her immortal family members.   And there's implications about Shredder, although Splinter catches on too fast for Kitsune to allow her to take Shredder's remains. 

 

I'm looking forward to the next volume, although I think I'll continue to read these in digital formats and get them on sale.   I'd also be willing to reread this series should anyone care to buddy read.
