Is He Who Fights with Monsters a good book

Answered By: Simon Walker Date: created: Apr 21 2023

If you can get through MC’s somewhat (un)bearable humour, especially in the first 50 pages then He who fights with monsters is definitely a fun read. A fun mix of lit-rpg and wuxia elements that create an interesting and engaging fantasy world.

What does the quote he who fights monsters mean?

Self Mastery is the key to activism – Finally, Nietzsche’s deeply philosophical quote speaks to the idea that the struggle against oppression is not just about external forces, but also about the internal struggle for self-mastery. Left-wing activism and anti-capitalist protest movements are often focused on external forces of oppression, such as the capitalist system or the state. Nietzsche’s monsters quote has important implications for left-wing activism, It is a cautionary tale about the dangers of becoming consumed by anger and frustration, and a reminder of the importance of self-reflection and self-awareness in the struggle against oppression.

  • Ultimately, those who fight against oppression must be able to master their own emotions and impulses, and stay true to their values and principles, in order to effectively advance their goals.

    What does LitRPG mean in books?

    What Is LitRPG? – Defining the Genre LitRPG (Literary Role-Playing Game) is an emerging genre of fiction that combines the experience of digital role playing games with traditional narrative plotlines. It weaves a story around a protagonist that consciously immerses themselves in a virtual world to follow the quests and challenges set by the game realm.

    1. It is not to be confused with choose-your-own-path storylines or novels that expand the lore of existing RPG games.
    2. Instead, imagine you are the spectator to someone playing as their World of Warcraft avatar, witnessing their progression through in-game campaigns while observing their development through visible statistics such as health, agility, strength, or intelligence.

    Origins LitRPG only gained mainstream attention in the last decade or so, but the principles by which proper LitRPG operate may have been around for almost 30 years. The rise of MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games) in the late 1990s was a large driving force to its modern popularity.

    Though a brief history has been mapped by its proponents, a general consensus seems to exist that the term may have originated in 2013 from a brainstorming session held by three major figures of the major Russian publishing house, EKSMO. RPG Book Types and Themes Whether you’re a virtual gunslinger or a mystic, you will find that the thematic spectrum of the genre is expansive enough to feed your wildest fantasies.

    Gaming mechanics, plotline, purpose, and setting all play a role in determining the types of LitRPG you can play around with. Here is a list of LitRPG types:

      Builder : Where the protagonist becomes an active role player in constructing a base, settlement, or dungeon in which the story is contextualized. Crafting : An RPG where the hero engages in imbuing their weapons or artifacts with special enhancements. Harem : An edgy theme where the main character lives out their erotic fantasies with other characters who wish to engage sexually. Dungeon-core : The majority of the gameplay unfolds in a dungeon-like environment. Grimdark : Involves the merger of the horror genre with the virtual world.

    This list by no means exhausts the options. Some types involve OP (over-powered) protagonists or even LitFPS (first-person shooter) elements. The takeaway: for every RPG type, there is a book waiting to be written!

    How does the book Monster end

    Answered By: Zachary Brown Date: created: Oct 04 2023

    Plot – The novel begins with 16-year-old Steve Harmon writing in his book awaiting for his trial for murder, Musing on his short time in prison so far, he decides to record this upcoming experience in the form of a movie screenplay. Kathy O’Brien, Steve’s lawyer, informs him on what will happen during the trial.

    At this stage, only two of the four accused – James King and Steve – will be tried, since the other two accused – Richard “Bobo” Evans and Osvaldo Cruz – have entered into a plea bargain, When the trial first begins, Steve flashes back to a movie he saw in his school’s film of predictability. The trial begins with the opening statements of the prosecutor Sandra Petrocelli, Miss O’Brien, and King’s lawyer, Asa Briggs.

    Petrocelli labels the four accused men, including Steve, as “monsters.” The lawyers call on several witnesses, including Salvatore Zinzi and Wendell Bolden, illicit cigarette traders, who admit to buying cigarettes that came from a drugstore robbery that led to the murder.

    The story of the trial is often broken up by a variety of flashbacks, including ones showing that King is only acquainted with Steve, that King had accused Steve of pulling the trigger during the robbery. Petrocelli calls as a witness Osvaldo Cruz, who is affiliated with the Diablo’s, a violent street gang.

    Cruz admits to participating in the crime only due to coercion by “Bobo.” Steve recounts a visit from his father, who wishes Steve would have gone on to attend his Alma Mater, Morehousehoe College, After recounting various news reports covering the robbery and murder, Steve documents his arrest and his mother’s panicked reaction.

    1. Before returning to the trial, Steve writes in his notes that he cannot psychologically handle writing down the tragic details of the robbery itself.
    2. The coroner, the city clerk, and a detective are questioned in a four-way split screen montage.
    3. Miss O’Brien warns Steve not to write down in his notebook anything that he does not want the prosecutor to see.

    According to Cruz, the original plan was that Steve would go into the drugstore and signal if the coast was clear. After King and Bobo robbed the store owner, Mr. Nesbitt, Cruz would slow down any potential pursuers. Bobo takes the witness stand to say that James King pulled the trigger and vaguely recalls that Steve, whom he hardly knows, was meant to give an all-clear signal.

    1. Briggs argues that neither King nor Steve was ever involved in the crime since the only eyewitness to the robbery saw only two men involved, which can be accounted for by Bobo and Cruz alone.
    2. Though Miss O’Brien seems doubtful of Steve’s innocence, she wisely has him distance himself from King.
    3. Steve appears to know King and Cruz only as remote acquaintances, and Bobo hardly at all.

    Steve testifies that he does not particularly remember where he was on the day of the robbery, but that he certainly was not a participant. The defense systematically casts the honesty of Petrocelli’s witnesses in doubt. Although many of the testimonies contradict, even the most incriminating toward Steve claims only that he acted as a lookout in the first stage of the robbery.

    George Sawicki, Steve’s film club mentor, serves as a character witness, proudly defending Steve’s moral character. Briggs, Miss O’Brien, and Petrocelli finally make their closing statements, before the jury decides on a verdict. James King is found guilty, while Steve is found not guilty. As Steve moves to hug O’Brien, she turns away, leaving Steve to question why.

    The end of the novel takes place five months after Steve has been cleared of all charges and released from prison. Steve has continued his film-making, but his father has moved away, creating a noticeable distance between the two. He is still confused as to Miss O’Brien’s demeanor at the end of the trial, wondering whether she saw some real Steve or a “monster.”

    Who was the victim in Monster book?

    Alguinaldo Nesbitt – The drugstore owner who was shot during the robbery at issue. Nesbitt was a fifty-five-year-old immigrant from St. Kitts and well respected in the neighborhood. Nesbitt was the legal owner of the gun that killed him. The gun goes off during Nesbitt’s struggle with one of the robbers. He appears at the trial in the form of crime scene photos.

    Is Gods and Monsters a happy ending?

    Gods & Monsters – Shelby Mahurin Title : Gods & Monsters Series: Serpent & Dove Author : Shelby Mahurin Genre : YA, Fantasy Published : July 27th, 2021 (HarperTeen) Synopsis : After a heartbreaking loss, Lou, Reid, Beau, and Coco are bent on vengeance more than ever before—and none more so than Lou. But this is no longer the Lou they thought they knew. No longer the Lou that captured a chasseur’s heart. A darkness has settled over her, and this time it will take more than love to drive it out.

    Evil always seeks a foothold. We must not give it one. Review : “Hope isn’t the sickness. It’s the cure.” Gods and Monsters picks up where the story previously left off, as Lou and company make their way towards Chateau le Blanc, still in shock from the confrontation with Morgane and the horrifying consequences.

    What they don’t know yet is that Lou has been possessed by Nicholina under the orders of La Voisin, who has allied with Morgane. Freeing her from the dark presence that has taken over will be a difficult task, and even if they are successful, Lou may not emerge from it as her old self.

    1. This book was among my most anticipated finales for the year and after reading it, I have rather mixed feelings on the whole.
    2. First things first however – I love the cover of this book and the hardcover is even more stunning in person, definitely one I’m planning to add to my shelves when I get a chance.

    Lou’s possession, the cliffhanger upon which Blood and Honey ended, was resolved surprisingly quickly. I had expected, and even hoped, that it would play a major role for more of this book, but it was handled and done far earlier in this book than I anticipated.

    1. Several plot points that seemed irrelevant in book 2 were connected and made much more sense this time around.
    2. Deep down, I’d known how this would end all along.
    3. I’d sensed it from the moment we’d first met, from the time I’d first glimpsed the Balisarda in his bandolier—two star-crossed lovers brought together by fate or providence.

    By life and by death. By gods, or perhaps monsters. We would end with a stake and a match.” While Lou and Reid were once more the POV characters, I felt that it was the secondary characters who shone, particularly Coco and Beau and also Celie and Jean-Luc, who initially didn’t seem to be doing much but evolved pretty well throughout the story into actually likeable characters.

    • I had also hoped to see more of Morgane in this book, but she was barely a focus of the plot until the finale, which was rather disappointing because as the major villain, she really should have had more page time.
    • On the plus side, Lou and Reid’s banter that I so missed in Blood and Honey made a reappearance, and it was so nice to see them act like themselves again.

    The pacing was, once again, a highly problematic piece of the book. For the first 200 pages or so, it seemed to crawl. To be honest, if I wasn’t already behind on my reading schedule, the first quarter of the book alone would have convinced me to lay it aside for a couple of days.

    • While the pacing did improve a bit after that, it felt quite choppy and I couldn’t get a clear picture of the direction of the plot until nearly the 75% mark, when it began to feel like a series finale.
    • This book’s saving grace was that there was enough going on to keep me interested and reading, if horribly confused, until the pieces finally started coming together.

    The bottom line is that there were several sequences that did not have to be dragged out as much as they did, fascinating and relevant to the plot as they might have been. This book could have easily been at least a 100 pages shorter without losing any vital plot points.

    There was one thread that I absolutely hated, and I’m too annoyed to not talk about it in this review, so spoilers ahead, skip to the next paragraph if you don’t want to know. Gods and Monsters provides a perfect example of how to ruin a beautiful character arc. It took the better part of two books for Reid to get over his prejudices and accept witches and his own magic, and it all fell apart in a single chapter because of the wretched memory loss trope.

    I get the point of it, of course, that despite him losing his memory, he still works his way back to Lou and falls in love with her again, but as a reader, it’s among the most frustrating tropes I can come across and felt completely unnecessary. The final battle, as expected, was chaotic, but also quite well handled, considering how high the stakes had been ratcheted up for the moment.

    1. But the ending just felt a littleunrealistic to me.
    2. Centuries of hatred and prejudice are not ended in a single day and by a single fight, so the aftermath and how quickly everything seemed to come together didn’t sit quite right.
    3. All in all however, I adore a happy ending just as much as anyone else, and there were a few moments when I genuinely thought this might end up a star crossed tragedy, so I was pleased enough by this finale.

    The epilogue, particularly who narrated it, was a really sweet touch and the perfect way to end this series. While the first book still remains my favorite, I would still recommend this trilogy as a whole to any fantasy fans as it was a truly enjoyable read.

    Answered By: Cole Lewis Date: created: Jun 17 2023

    Parents Need to Know – Parents need to know that this book is about a teen on trial for murder. While part of the story is told as a movie script, it employs highly realistic writing, with both poor and proper grammar used appropriately for each character. Grainy photographs contribute to the realistic atmosphere. There is some gritty material: characters are beaten up, the rape of inmates is implied, and Steve is terrified of being sent to prison. The high drama in this dialogue-driven story will appeal to even reluctant readers. And teens will appreciate debating whether Steve’s guilty or not, and related issues, such as the fairness of our judicial system.

Why read it? – 3 authors picked Monster as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it? Wayne Harrison This one’s the fastest read of the bunch; in fact, you may find yourself rebooting for a second savory read without putting it down. Sixteen-year-old Steve Harmon faces a life sentence for his alleged participation in a robbery that killed a convenience store owner.

To cope with the horrors of his cell block, where the spirited African American teen is housed until his trial ends, Steve recounts events before and after the crime in the form of a screenplay; this enthralling courtroom drama deep-dives into the racial and economic forces responsible for overcrowding our flawed criminal justice system.

Steve’s perseverance David Jackson Ambrose This book tells a story that we’ve all seen many times in recent news; a young Black man in jail and on trial for a violent crime, but instead of the media’s perspective, this book tells the story from the mind of the young man. Aaron Philip Clark One of my favorite crime novels, though it’s considered, Young Adult, the novel centers on Steve Harmon, a Black teenager, on trial for murder. It’s a superbly written novel that explores issues of institutional and systemic racism, the prison industrial complex, racial identity, and toxic masculinity.

Is the book Monster appropriate for 12 year olds?

Parent reviews for Monster December 6, 2010 If there’s an infrequent use of “mild to moderate” language and implicit or passing references to sexual activity, I’m unsure why this book would be rated so highly for sex and language. Violence? Of course violence is part of “Monster;” the story is about a young teenager on trial for aiding in a robbery which results in murder.

I rate this as appropriate for ages 13 and up not for any “controversial content,” but because Myer weaves such a complex story, following the protagonist, Steve, as he struggles to understand how he’s come to this point, his overwhelming trial, his dreams in life. Readers are left to figure out Steve’s guilt or innocence; Steve himself must grapple with who he is versus what others see him as.

Though these questions are never explicitly asked, Myers’ story encourages readers to consider how we view young, urban black men; how these perceptions are internalized; justice; how a life (potentially) derails. “Monster” is a quick read that will draw in reluctant readers with its mixed journal and screenplay-style narrative, but be warned: it not only entertains (because let’s face it: it’s just a darn good story), it also gets kids and teens to think.

Love and Monsters “One of the 50 Coolest Websites.they simply tell it like it is” – Why is “Love and Monsters” rated PG-13? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “action/violence, language and some suggestive material.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes an implied sex scene, and a few kissing scenes, several scenes of people being killed by giant monsters with little blood shown, many scenes of a young man and a dog being threatened by monsters ending with the destruction of the monsters, reports of the death of several people, reports of humans being killed by monsters, and some strong language.

  • Read our parents’ guide below for details on, &,
  • In the near future, an attempt to destroy an asteroid results in chemicals raining down on Earth, and causing insects and amphibians to become enormous monsters.
  • The few remaining humans have retreated to underground bunkers for safety, but one young man (Dylan O’Brien) decides to visit his girlfriend (Jessica Henwick) by traveling 80 miles in very treacherous terrain.

Also with Michael Rooker, Dan Ewing and Ariana Greenblatt. Directed by Michael Matthews. – A man and a woman in bed kiss and the woman is seen straddling the man; it is implied that they are having sex and a young man in a nearby bunk pretends to be asleep but hears them and describes their relationship as “super physical.” A man and a woman lie in bed (we see their bare legs).

A teen boy and a teen girl kiss in a car, the girl climbs into the backseat of the car and the boy follows as they continue to kiss; they are interrupted (please see the Violence/Gore category for more details). ► A young man and a young woman kiss. A young man and a young woman kiss and we hear later that he was actually kissing a man (he was under the influence of a hallucinogenic).

A man and woman are shown lying in bed; the man wears his shirt open and boxers that reveal bare chest, abdomen and legs to the thighs. A woman wears a towel wrapped around her and we see her bare shoulders and cleavage. ► A young man describes a community of people as “everyone is coupled up” and that he is the only single person in the bunker.

– A voiceover talks about the world nearly ending from an asteroid strike and that rockets were fired at it before it struck the Earth but that emissions from the rockets caused creatures to become giant monsters; we see drawings of monsters eating people and animals and we hear that 95% of the population was lost in a year and survivors live in underground bunkers.

► A young man moves through a bunker and sees what looks like the monster biting the head off a person (in silhouette), the monster moves toward the young man and drools slime on his head until a woman shoots it and a man cuts its head off (the severed head falls on the floor in a puddle of slime).

  1. We hear thumping outside a bunker and people inside arm themselves; two people go through a tunnel and we see that one of them is killed by a monster.
  2. A young man remembers his parents being crushed in a car when a monster stepped on it (we see the stomping but do not see the results).
  3. Two men and a woman are attacked and eaten by a giant crab (we hear them screaming).

► A monster speeds through the ground toward a young man, who throws a grenade in its mouth, blowing it up and throwing the young man into a river. A dog seems upset by something and hides under a large metal duck as the ground begins to move and spikes pop up out of the dirt followed by a giant monster with many legs and long tentacles; a young man is thrown and the dog is surrounded by the monster as it rips away the metal structure it is hiding under and is about to attack the dog when the man revives and kills the monster by shooting it twice.

A monster pops out of the ground and chases a young man and a dog; the young man tumbles down a hill and he and the dog hide in the hollow of a fallen tree as the monster comes very near them, but goes back into the ground and moves away. A giant crab crawls out of the ocean and over rocks toward people on a beach and the people run and scream; a young man stabs the crab with a large rotisserie pole and it flips over on its back until it is zapped with an electric shock and moves toward the young man again.

► A young man falls in a deep hole that he is unable to climb out of and finds many human bones littering the ground; giant creatures lunge toward him from smaller holes in the walls until a man on the surface pulls him up with a rope and a young girl drops an explosive in the hole blowing up the creatures into pieces and out onto the ground.

Eye stalks poke out of a pool of water and a young man is knocked over by something off-screen as a giant toad comes out of the water and tries to grab the young man with its long tongue; the tongue grabs the young man’s leg and a dog bites the tongue until the toad lets go and the young man and dog run away to safety.

A young man gets out of a body of water and is covered with large leeches that he pulls off and they leave a trail of slime and he gags a few times but does not vomit; the young man is later shown under the influence of a toxin that causes him to hallucinate and he seems to have trouble breathing until he eats a fern leaf that has an anti-toxin.

  • Two women fight with punches and throws and one woman shoots at a dog as the other woman hits her in the head with a log causing her to miss.
  • A woman runs toward a man and he shoots at her; she uses a metal door as a shield and she tackles the man.
  • A woman punches a young man in the face and when he revives, his hands are tied and there’s blood on his head and face.

A dog bites a young man’s pant leg and tugs on it when the young man nearly eats a berry that we find out later is poisonous. A giant snail moves near a young man and a man tells him to take off his shirt slowly as it passes by and the man tucks the shirt in the snail’s shell to spread the young man’s scent elsewhere.

► A young girl cries when a young man leaves to go to a different colony. A young man finds a robot that says that something bit it in half (we see the lower parts of the legs missing, with exposed wires). A teen boy and a teen girl kiss in a car, the girl climbs into the backseat of the car and the boy follows as they continue to kiss, but they stop when they see giant monsters coming out of the ground in the distance and firebombs being launched.

A young man opens a refrigerator door in an abandoned house and we hear a screech come from inside; he slams the door shut and recoils. ► A young man leaves an underground bunker to walk 85 miles to another colony and we see evidence of giant insects, like egg pods.

A grave where a robot is buried is shown. Several scenes show the rubble and destruction of cities with overgrown areas left uninhabited. A young man takes target practice with a crossbow in a few scenes. A robot shows a young man pictures of his parents before they died and he cries. Creatures that are called “sky jellies” float through the air (they resemble jellyfish and they glow).

► A man talks about several attacks by monsters and how he thwarted them. A man talks about the world being devoid of fossil fuels and that he has devised another method of propulsion for his yacht as we see movement underwater. We hear that a monster ripped through the steel reinforcements around the perimeter of a bunker.

A man says that giant snails are sensitive but, “Will crush your in a second.” A reference is made to a “Shotgun blast to the head.” A comment is made about humans being “Kicked off the top of the food chain.” A man over a radio tells a young man that their bunker has had multiple breaches and that people have been killed.

A young girl talks about how her father was killed and a man talks about his son being killed. ► A woman is shown with a patch over her eye and other people have various scars. A man and woman brush their teeth (we do not see them spit). The carcass of a dead monster is shown in the distance.

Grainy photographs contribute to the realistic atmosphere. There is some gritty material: characters are beaten up, the rape of inmates is implied, and Steve is terrified of being sent to prison. The high drama in this dialogue-driven story will appeal to even reluctant readers. And teens will appreciate debating whether Steve’s guilty or not, and related issues, such as the fairness of our judicial system.

Is He Who Fights with Monsters a graphic novel?

Review: He Who Fights with Monsters by Francesco Artibani and Werther Dell’Edera Ablaze (August 30, 2022) 144 pages; $24.99 hardcover Reviewed by Joshua Gage Francesco Artibani has long worked for the Walt Disney Company Italia, where he writes many tales for Topolino, PK, and W.I.T.C.H,, of which he’s been a scriptwriter and story editor for three years, and has created the science fiction series Kylion,

Werther Dell’Edera is an Italian comic book artist who provided interior art for the unreleased comic Aliens: Colonial Marines – Rising Threat for Dark Horse Comics, as well as Marvel Comics, and BOOM! Studios hit Something is Killing the Children, Their newest collaboration is the WWII graphic novel He Who Fights With Monsters,

The novel begins in 1945 in Prague. The Russians are taking over, and puppet master Glonek wants to entertain a Russian Lieutenant with a tale from the history of his city. The rest of the graphic novel is about a young Jewish doctor, Dr. Radek Molnar, and one of his patients trying to survive the Nazi invasion without being caught.

  • To aid their resistance, they create a golem, which seems to work well, until it doesn’t.
  • This is not the first novel to combine the horrors of WWII and the golem myth, and I’m sure it won’t be the last; however, the tale itself is intriguing enough to keep readers moving.
  • Furthermore, Artibani throws in a few twists to keep readers surprised and engaged, as well.

Of course, Dell’Edera’s art is as beautiful and striking as ever. The palette chosen is very dark and drab, immediately bringing the ugliness of war and ruin to life for the reader and adding suspense and terror to the book. Overall, He Who Fights with Monsters is an interesting moral tale laced with myth and horror.

Does Gods and Monsters have a good ending

Answered By: Dylan Rodriguez Date: created: Apr 27 2023

Gods & Monsters – Shelby Mahurin Title : Gods & Monsters Series: Serpent & Dove Author : Shelby Mahurin Genre : YA, Fantasy Published : July 27th, 2021 (HarperTeen) Synopsis : After a heartbreaking loss, Lou, Reid, Beau, and Coco are bent on vengeance more than ever before—and none more so than Lou. But this is no longer the Lou they thought they knew. No longer the Lou that captured a chasseur’s heart. A darkness has settled over her, and this time it will take more than love to drive it out.

  • Evil always seeks a foothold.
  • We must not give it one.
  • Review : “Hope isn’t the sickness.
  • It’s the cure.” Gods and Monsters picks up where the story previously left off, as Lou and company make their way towards Chateau le Blanc, still in shock from the confrontation with Morgane and the horrifying consequences.

What they don’t know yet is that Lou has been possessed by Nicholina under the orders of La Voisin, who has allied with Morgane. Freeing her from the dark presence that has taken over will be a difficult task, and even if they are successful, Lou may not emerge from it as her old self.

This book was among my most anticipated finales for the year and after reading it, I have rather mixed feelings on the whole. First things first however – I love the cover of this book and the hardcover is even more stunning in person, definitely one I’m planning to add to my shelves when I get a chance.

Lou’s possession, the cliffhanger upon which Blood and Honey ended, was resolved surprisingly quickly. I had expected, and even hoped, that it would play a major role for more of this book, but it was handled and done far earlier in this book than I anticipated.

  1. Several plot points that seemed irrelevant in book 2 were connected and made much more sense this time around.
  2. Deep down, I’d known how this would end all along.
  3. I’d sensed it from the moment we’d first met, from the time I’d first glimpsed the Balisarda in his bandolier—two star-crossed lovers brought together by fate or providence.

By life and by death. By gods, or perhaps monsters. We would end with a stake and a match.” While Lou and Reid were once more the POV characters, I felt that it was the secondary characters who shone, particularly Coco and Beau and also Celie and Jean-Luc, who initially didn’t seem to be doing much but evolved pretty well throughout the story into actually likeable characters.

I had also hoped to see more of Morgane in this book, but she was barely a focus of the plot until the finale, which was rather disappointing because as the major villain, she really should have had more page time. On the plus side, Lou and Reid’s banter that I so missed in Blood and Honey made a reappearance, and it was so nice to see them act like themselves again.

The pacing was, once again, a highly problematic piece of the book. For the first 200 pages or so, it seemed to crawl. To be honest, if I wasn’t already behind on my reading schedule, the first quarter of the book alone would have convinced me to lay it aside for a couple of days.

  1. While the pacing did improve a bit after that, it felt quite choppy and I couldn’t get a clear picture of the direction of the plot until nearly the 75% mark, when it began to feel like a series finale.
  2. This book’s saving grace was that there was enough going on to keep me interested and reading, if horribly confused, until the pieces finally started coming together.

The bottom line is that there were several sequences that did not have to be dragged out as much as they did, fascinating and relevant to the plot as they might have been. This book could have easily been at least a 100 pages shorter without losing any vital plot points.

  1. There was one thread that I absolutely hated, and I’m too annoyed to not talk about it in this review, so spoilers ahead, skip to the next paragraph if you don’t want to know.
  2. Gods and Monsters provides a perfect example of how to ruin a beautiful character arc.
  3. It took the better part of two books for Reid to get over his prejudices and accept witches and his own magic, and it all fell apart in a single chapter because of the wretched memory loss trope.

I get the point of it, of course, that despite him losing his memory, he still works his way back to Lou and falls in love with her again, but as a reader, it’s among the most frustrating tropes I can come across and felt completely unnecessary. The final battle, as expected, was chaotic, but also quite well handled, considering how high the stakes had been ratcheted up for the moment.

  • But the ending just felt a littleunrealistic to me.
  • Centuries of hatred and prejudice are not ended in a single day and by a single fight, so the aftermath and how quickly everything seemed to come together didn’t sit quite right.
  • All in all however, I adore a happy ending just as much as anyone else, and there were a few moments when I genuinely thought this might end up a star crossed tragedy, so I was pleased enough by this finale.

The epilogue, particularly who narrated it, was a really sweet touch and the perfect way to end this series. While the first book still remains my favorite, I would still recommend this trilogy as a whole to any fantasy fans as it was a truly enjoyable read.
