Who wants to create a secret society with me. We can have secret meetings where we discuss poetry and old literature, and we can all have secret charms to show that we belong. It will be our secret.

“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they’ve all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.”

- Neil Gaiman, The Sandman

I‘d never thought that I ended up with those kind of books. Steve McGarrett has opened my doors of interest for the special elite group of crazy guys who become a Navy SEAL. This book has just arrived. Can’t wait to start reading. A fangirl does some research and besides there are always a great amount of insider information I‘m so curious about.

My thoughts on The Blinding Knife by Brent Weeks.

My brief opinions about book 1 of this series, The Black Prism: I enjoyed it enough to read the rest of the series. My issues with book 1 continue in book 2.

My thoughts on The Blinding Knife by Brent Weeks. Book 2 of Lightbringer series:

I really love the worldbuilding. The way the author integrated magic systems into his worldbuilding feels so natural. This is the reason why I’m going to finish the series.

It’s clear that the main characters is the good guys that happened to make a hard choices a.k.a Gavin. I’m so used to grimdark, where everyone is an asshole. This book is a breath of fresh air. Where you know, the main characters gonna make a good decision rather than the right one. That said I predicted it and sometimes it’s so boring because how predictable it is.

There’s other part of the story where I thought I know where this is going but nope, the author just finished it just like that. Kinda surprised but that’s the point, I guess.

The antagonist or the bad guy. Surprisingly, I like Liv’s POV but I want more from her plot. I want to read depth and motivation from the other side. I don’t want he’s evil because he just evil. There’s a line about villain in this book I’m disagree. “Evil is simple and empty. Evil has no mysterious depths. We stare into a dark hole and fill it with our fears, but it is only a hole.” I hope this is not the case and just fault of the character who said it.

If I’m being honest at the beginning I believe in the Colour Prince. If I lived in that world, I might support him. As I read further. He just said what people wants and there’s hidden agenda. He sound like a cliche villain. I hate that but I’m only on book 2. There’s other three books to make Koios an interesting villain or he’s a side villain because Andross Guile kinda the main antagonist here.

I disliked organised religions. It irks me everytime the characters can’t think by themselves without Orhalam. So that’s why I kinda like when the Colour Prince want to destroy Chromeria but now I know his hidden agenda. I guess I’m just gonna support Kip, I guess.

I really like Kip. He’s so relatable. I enjoyed reading him grow as a person.

What I don’t like in this book is the antagonists, I want good motivaton. I want to know why they did it. I don’t want another “he’s evil because he’s evil” trope.

Another one is women characters. Every women characters that appears are sees as sexual object rather than a person. I bet in this world, woman and man can’t be friends because they gonna ended up having sex.

You know, when everyone were so horny in this book, I’m surprise there’s no details sex scene but just vagues or implies. I’m glad it’s not there, I just know it’s going to be cringe.

To be frank, I just want two sides where they happens to have different motives and no definitions of bad guys. Where both sides has interesting points. Where I have trouble to choose who to root for. This is probably why I love grimdark fantasy so much.

I’ve no idea why I decided to wrote this. Meh.

Chaotic Evil??

Can I just say people who read books from a series out of order scare me. Like, who reads the first one, then the third one, then the second one!? Psychos! And not even because the library didn’t have it. Because they wanted to know what was gonna happen. And then they have the audacity to complain about it!? Like what? You DESERVE to be confused.
