Critical Role: Legends of Vox Machina
Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins - Matthew V. Mercer,Matthew Colville

I think I've mentioned I play Dungeons and Dragons and it's hard to be in that community without having heard of Critical Role. I'm still listening to campaign one so of course, I had to read Legends of Vox Machina when I saw it was available. 

 

I absolutely adored this graphic novel. For one thing, I really captured the spirit of Dungeons and Dragons. For example, Scanlan singing Queen even though the band wouldn't - or at least, shouldn't - exist in a mystical fantasy world. Or the quirky humor and problem-solving. Or the way combat worked, how we see everyone's turn. It read like an actual Initiative and that made it more fun to read. 

 

Additionally, I don't think you'd have to be a D&D player in order to enjoy this. It's a well set up fantasy world. The rules are clear, the characters engaging and realistic, and the problems are worth investing in. 

 

Final rating: 5/5 Where you're a player or just a curious reader, you'll enjoy this graphic novel.

 

Scanlan and Vax peeing on the ruin to destroy it is the most D&D thing that could have been done and I lost it  at that part.

Freebie
Kid Legends - David Stabler
This is kindle freebie is a sampler or teaser for the books in the series. It is an excellent series. The biographies are accurate and kid friendly. It should be noted that the actual books tend to be more diverse than this sampler - which has a total of nine people, only two of which are female and only two poc.

The illustrations are lovely.

A Dragon Falls – Hidden By Megg Jensen @meggjensen @XpressoTours
Hidden - Megg Jensen

I downloaded a copy of Hidden by Megg Jensen a long time ago, 12.16.15, to be exact, but before that. I think it had been made free since I had signed up to review the book through Xpresso Book Tours. I finished reading the book on 1.3.15 and did rate the book on goodreads, but did not write the review.

 

AND…GUESS WHAT…IT’S FREE. But be sure and look for the ‘0’

 

Great cover by Michael Gauss

 

Hidden (Dragonlands, #1)

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Dragons, can never get enough of them.

 

The living conditions put people’s true character to the test. Such close living makes it hard to hid their true colors. The characters are vindictive, revengeful, heroic and brave. I love ’em and hate ’em.

 

What is the fog? Is it treacherous, benign, hiding something? What happens to those who go into the fog?

 

I was engrossed from the beginning. The fog had me very curious and I wanted to walk into it with Tressa. When I first started reading the book, I was looking for dragons, but once I met Tressa, it became all about her. I love her strength. Her personality demanded she do what is right, no matter the consequences. She wasn’t reckless, she felt it was her duty to her people…as if she were their leader. Bastion, her true love since childhood, meant, fated, to be together.

 

The longer I read, the more I find is going on. I am loving my journey to the answers. It is exciting and dangers at the same time. I was bummed when a favorite of min bit the dust, added an unexpected twist, but I love when an author doesn’t walk the usual line and isn’t afraid to kill of their characters. Not predictable and plenty of surprises. Would love to read more.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Hidden by Megg Jensen.

Charles River Freebies Round Up
The Khmer Empire: The History and Legacy of One of Southeast Asia’s Most Influential Empire - Charles River Editors
Sinn Féin: The History and Legacy of the Irish Republican Political Party - Charles River Editors
Werewolves: The Legends and Folk Tales about Humans Shapeshifting into Wolves - Charles River Editors
Fort Astoria: The History and Legacy of the First American Settlement on the Pacific Coast - Charles River Editors
The Catacombs of Paris: The History of the City’s Underground Ossuaries and Burial Network - Charles River Editors

These were all gotten as kindle freebies.

 

The best two are the one about Werewolves and the Catacombs because they offer the must in the terms of facts, and move beyond the general.

 

The other three aren't bad, but short, simple, and general.

Halloween Bingo Pre-Party: Favorite Series With Supernatural Elements
Dead Until Dark - Charlaine Harris
Guilty Pleasures - Laurell K. Hamilton
The Passion - Donna Boyd
The Silver Wolf (Legends of the Wolf #1) - Alice Borchardt

I apologize for my lack of participation here. I've been on staycation and fell into lazy slug mode and life has been . . . eventful and there are never enough hours to do all of the things I plan to do. Anyhow, these are my picks for the favorite series with supernatural elements. I've been steering clear of series for awhile now because I never finish them so these are all oldies and I never did finish the Harris or Hamilton end books (they lost me) but the earlier one's were good stuff.
