No pics :/ During weekdays there is too little daylight, and only walked in the evening last weekend.
The flat abs challenge is not going that well, I realised that I had missed that I was to start a new series, so I had to go back a week. Oh well, it will just take a bit longer than a month ;)
Most of the time the Moontide Bridge lies deep below the sea, but every 12 years the tides sink and the bridge is revealed, its gates open for trade.
The Magi are hell-bent on ruling this new world, and for the last two Moontides they have led armies across the bridge on ‘crusades’ of conquest.
Now the third Moontide is almost here and, this time, the people of the East are ready for a fight . . . but it is three seemingly ordinary people that will decide the fate of the world.
I was disappointed. I love great worldbuilding. I do not mind if you borrow from cultures in our world, just by the gods, change some things at least!
This world has the Mafia in Sicily and they even speak Italian there.
There are the roaming Romani.
There is Jerusalem, and trust me, it's not like it's a place call Ach*meh*otu and I just guessed it. No, it's called Hebusalim. Like with the Romani and mafia it's so freaking obvious.
There is the West, and the East and the East is so our East and they have declared Jihad there. There are Emirs, there are camels, there is even the India place with Kama Sutra.
There is a Jesus like guy. There is the Roman empire.
The planet is called Urth *groans*
Fine, could the characters have saved it?
Half and half. Aleron was pretty interesting (even though he was stupid). His aunt Elena was pretty interesting.
That guy following the girl he loves was NOT interesting. I skimmed his parts. The story if the girl he loved and her new man, was NOT interesting. I skimmed her parts.
The only reason I am giving this a 2 is cos of Aleron and Elena. The rest was bad. No originality at all.
