Any woman setting out to make a living by the sword isn’t about to go around looking like something off the cover of the more advanced kind of lingerie catalogue for the specialised buyer…
The point that must be made is that although Herrena the Henna-Haired Harridan would look quite stunning after a good bath, a heavy-duty manicure, and the pick of the leather racks in Woo Hun Ling’s Oriental Exotica and Martial Aids on Heroes Street, she was currently quite sensibly dressed in light chain mail, soft boots, and a short sword.
All right, maybe the boots were leather. But not black.
Sometimes it’s not the kid you expect who falls through to magicland, sometimes it’s … Elliot. He’s grumpy, nerdy, and appalled by both the dearth of technology and the levels of fitness involved in swinging swords around. He’s a little enchanted by the elves and mermaids. Despite his aversion to war, work, and most people (human or otherwise) he finds that two unlikely ideas, friendship and world peace, may actually be possible.
the problem with adult scifi/fantasy books is that they tend to have generic and pretty similar looking cover designs and a bunch of the books are really good but you cant find them without extensive research cause they all look the same
the problem with ya scifi/fantasy books is that they tend to have unique cover designs but a bunch of them are really bad and you cant find the good ones without extensive research cause they all look cool
All you did was read books this weekend...
No. I fought a seven monsters, destroyed a corrupt government, rode a dragon, went through intense emotional pain, got some kick ass super powers, went back in time, joined a crime group and stole a shit ton of money, became the ruler of a nation, entered a dystopian army, was on the run, discovered a few supernatural creatures, traveled the world, made ten new best friends and fell in love with five different people...what did you do this weekend?
