Animereview: BLAME! (2017)


Dauer: 106  Minuten
Meine Bewertung: 
Handlung: Die menschliche Zivilisation ist zusammengebrochen und existiert nur noch im Geheimen unterhalb der gigantischen, sich ständig selbst reprouzierenden Geflecht der "Megastruktur", eine unendlich wachsend Stadt voller brutaler Cyborgs und Roboter, die ihre eigenen Schöpfer vernichten wollen. Nur ein Mensch mit dem Netzwerk-Gen kann wieder die Kontrolle über die Megastruktur gewinnen, und nach solch einem sucht der geheimnisvolle Killy und schließt sich einer Gruppe von Menschen an, die Tag für Tag um ihr Überleben kämpfen müssen ...

Rezension: Mask of Shadows von Linsey Miller (Sourcebooks Fire)

Ein genderfluider Assassine, ein tödlicher Wettkampf ... und jede Menge Klischees zum Augenverdrehen!

Sallot Leon is a thief, and a good one at that. But gender fluid Sal wants nothing more than to escape the drudgery of life as a highway robber and get closer to the upper-class and the nobles who destroyed their home. 
When Sal steals a flyer for an audition to become a member of The Left Hand - the Queen's personal assassins, named after the rings she wears - Sal jumps at the chance to infiltrate the court and get revenge. But the audition is a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. A childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the trials. And as Sal succeeds in the competition, and wins the heart of Elise, an intriguing scribe at court, they start to dream of a new life and a different future, but one that Sal can have only if they survive.

It's a few months since Kellen left his people behind. Now aged sixteen, Kellen is an outlaw, relying on his wits to keep him alive in the land of the Seven Sands. He misses home, he misses family and more than anything, he misses Nephenia, the girl he left behind. 
Then he meets Seneira, a blindfolded girl who isn't blind, and who carries a secret that's all too familiar to Kellen. Kellen and Ferius resolve to help - but the stakes are far higher than they realise. A Shadowblack plague is taking hold - and Kellen can't help but suspect his own people may even be behind it.

Rückblick auf den Oktober: ein teuflisch guter Lesemonat!

Schön - wann noch mal hatte ich mir vorgenommen, den Rückblick auf Bücher, Filme, Serien etc. stets am 1. eines Monats zu posten? Denkste. In den letzten Tagen war bei mir eher so eine Art Lernen/Lesen/YouTube/Lernen/Lesen/YouTube-Stimmung und war eher weniger in Laune fürs Bloggen. Aber was für tolle Lesestunden es dafür waren! Keine einzige Buchenttäuschung. Oder besser gesagt: Prinzessin Diana von Themyscira trifft auf den Hexer Geralt von Riva und den Einherjar Magnus Chase von ... Magnus Chase von Hotel Walhalla 😂

Rezension: Blade of the Destroyer (The Last Bucelarii #1) von Andy Peloquin

BLADE OF THE DESTROYER: Ein verlorener Assassine in einer verdorbenen Stadt. Krass und sehr düster!

The Hunter of Voramis is the perfect assassin: Ruthless, unrelenting, immortal. Yet he is haunted by lost memories, bonded to a cursed dagger that feeds him power yet denies him peace of mind. Within him rages an unquenchable need for blood and death. When he accepts a contract to avenge the stolen innocence of a girl, the Hunter becomes the prey. The death of a seemingly random target sends him hurtling toward destruction, yet could his path also lead to the truth of his buried past?

Rezension: Wonder Woman: Warbringer von Leigh Bardugo

Episch, mitreißend und mit unglaublichen Heldinnen: WARBRINGER hat alle Erwartungen übertroffen!

She will become one of the world's greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning ...
Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters.

Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.
Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn't know she is being hunted. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer - a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery. Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies - mortal and divine - determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war ...
