Perfect World – Vol 1: Review

25255796Perfect World reminded me how there are still places that are not handicap-friendly. And the representation of how people look at disabled people, and some might break away their relations is well incorporated in this story.

The comic is divided into four chapters, each giving more character development to the main characters. While the story does feel rushing and ‘too convenient’ at times, it is the realism that I liked. The romance is not over the top and the stress the main character feels towards his disability is palpable. The illustration is clean and easy to follow.

The Winner’s Curse: Review

21469136This was a pretty quick and good read.
The book dives directly into the characters, and but the third chapter you become familiar with their core personalities. They grew into what they believe is right, as the story progresses on. The growing attraction between the two main characters (Arin and Krestel) is hinted throughout the story, without making it seem sudden or unreal.

One drawback is the abruptness of the ending. The ending isn’t necessarily quick or lacking, but it is abrupt, you feel that the story could have continued a bit more to give it ‘whole’ feel.
Nevertheless, it was an enjoyable read, and I look forward to the sequel books

Overall: 3.5 out of 5

The Heart of Betrayal: Review

21569527A Better book!
While the first was average in terms of drawing out the characters and world building, by the time anything started to happen, the book had reached its final pages.

This second book in the trilogy did not have a ‘second-book-syndrome’, to which I’m so happy. I was afraid that this would drag non-stop and really go nowhere other than moving the characters from point A to point B and include a lot of character development.

The princess, Lia, is taken to the ‘barbarian’ land, Venda; which is mostly in ruins. But she soon uncovers underground pathways and more secrets of her own kingdom that she had not dreamed of. Lia has grown to care for both, Kaden and Rafe, which makes things more complicated in their relationship.

More betrayals (title drop, Lol), more plot-twists and more secrets are unraveled throughout the course of the book which makes it more enjoyable. Moreover, Lia, has become even more daring and fearless, which I’m absolutely loving.

Overall 4 out of 5 stars. Can’t wait to read the final book in the Remnant Chronicles.

Wotakoi – Vol 1: Review

31826480I was initially interested in this manga, since I am watching the anime, which is currently ongoing.
The anime is a delight to watch, the manga turned out to be even better.

The mange is hilarious. It efficiently delivers comedy to it’s audience. And the scenarios the character find themselves into are quite relatable.
It uses ‘otaku’ jargon a lot, but it includes a glossary, so even if you aren’t ‘getting it’ you can come around understanding the undertones of the topic.

The art is good and the typography makes the verbal cues evident. I love the anime, and would like to continue the manga.

Overall rating 4 out of 5.
