There is a lot of awful out there. Awful Books. Horrible Movies. Television that makes you cringe. But sometimes they hit the wall of awful and spring back and land in a magical valley of Awful Good. I spend my spare time roaming this strange and dangerous realm searching for hidden gems, and tearing apart everything else. Nothing is safe.
Book Review: The Fallen Blade (Act One of the Assassini) by Jon Courtenay Grimwood
This sounded awesome. Assassins in Venice and there was a vampire and a few werewolves mixed in. It was going to be kick ass. Instead it was a lot of characters that are weird doing things for motivations we are not clued into. Like the vampire kid is in love with this one girl and she with him, but for no reason. They meet like once for all of three minutes. There is no sneaky assassin stuff but rather a lot of dull things about love and marriage and blah. Just blah. The end was awful. Leo died for like no reason what so ever. He might have been the only character I liked. Boo this book. BOOOOOO!
