I am slowly, yet surely, cleaning out my ebooks library. One book down (okay, nine in total), hundreds to go (I literally mean hundreds). And it's still growing (sadly).
I personally liked the idea behind the book, being a fan of fairies, and it was one of the main reasons why I originally clicked the "buy" when I saw Memory's Wake for free on Amazon months ago. A few other reasons:
- The cover. Go figure?
- The title. It's pretty intriguing. "Memory's Wake." It kind of makes you wonder.
- The synopsis. Monstrous fairies? Haunted by the past? Dangerous secrets? Definitely got my attention.
Memory as a character also didn't seem very in-depth. I guess there is an explanation for that, but it seems that she's always a damsel in distress being saved by others and more often than not sort of cowering (not that I'm calling her a coward, but if it came across that way, sorry)... until near the end. But it also goes for Thayl as well, who seems like your stereotypical villain.
In the overall view, though, it wasn't that bad, and it would be really interesting to see Memory's Wake in comic form. While I know there's a sequel, Hope's Reign (I did my homework... :p), the ending to Memory's Wake made the book feel more like a stand alone than the first in a trilogy.
But is it just me, or do I see quite a bit of errors lurking about? Not the post... though there might be a few. I meant the book. Because if it's just me, I think I need to check my eyes.
