Review of “Dark Tidings” by @HannahRossFantasy

SPOILER ALERT

I have just finished reading “Dark Tidings”, by author KenMagee. At first, when I saw the length of the book, I was a little apprehensive – but soon I was pulled in and finished the whole whopping 66 chapters in record time. It’s a light, easy, humorous, thoroughly amusing read which has all my favorite elements – magic, time travel and world-embracing evil conspiracy. The two principal characters, Madrick and Tung, make a hilarious antagonistic duo, and the other main hero, Michael, provides the seriousness, commitment and balance that are needed to fight the bad guys. The idea of a small group battling a powerful organization is appealing and sympathy-inducing.

A few caveats: I feel this book would have gained a lot from the presence of a real, strong, good female character with sound principles. The character of Faith is kind of predictable – even as she first appears in the story, it was pretty obvious to me that she is going to betray Michael. I would have added another female character (not necessarily with romantic settings) to antagonize her.

Overall, the book is very enjoyable and leaves one craving to read more.

BLINK gets Featured

It’s that time of the year again folks (the time where I actually put up a blog post). I hear the gasps from the Wattpad audience over there, and yes *points to readership with dashing smile* I actually write sometimes. bows to applause and interspersed booing*

And for once I have something interesting (and notable) to say.

Me and this other guy Steve Ford (@cashjo on Wattpad) have written a book.

The book is finished.

The book is being featured on Wattpad for the next six months.

You should go read it. (click HERE to go to the book).

If you don’t read it your hair will start falling out.

Just kidding, but go read it okay? We need all your deep dark opinions over there (but if you can, be nice, we like that too).

And for those folks too lazy to actually GO to the Wattpad site, here is the book blurb thingimabob:

‘I don’t know how I do it, but I can look at a photo and enter that moment in time. Is it real? Hell, I don’t know, but something happened last time, something weird. I think I can change time and that fucking scares me.’

A serial killer is on the loose, taunting police for years. A near fatal accident and a murder will change John forever unless he uses ‘the Blink’ one more time.

You see? It actually sounds like you wanna read it.

Right? Nervous stare. Nervous chuckle.

Okay, I’m out. *insert awkward goobye here*
