ROUND TABLE TEXTS

First Impression: Condensed versions of King Arthur and the best

By LadyAnder, author of Hy'Ruh-Ha

Aug 28, 2018: I can’t really go into depth about this one because, well because it’s kind of hard for me to write a good long review for this story mostly because how it’s written.

Now to be honest, I’m not a King Arthur fan. He up there with Robin Hood with me. I’m tired of him. And yet I found myself chuckling at nearly every entry at this rather unique web serial.

Basically imagine reading Kind Arthur but as text messages between characters. It’s a lot more entertaining than reading Le Morte d’ Arthur by 100x.

Since each entries are text messages, they are very to the point while remaining true to the source material and makes it digestible in cute little bits of humor.

So my final score for this web-serial is binge watching a netflix show/10.

And if you so need those gold stars big fat solid 4.5/5 (please note I don’t easily give 5/5 for anything)

Basically it fun, readable, and if you want to eat up your personal time, I recommend.

GHOSTBOW

Gothic Fantasy

By Palladian, editor, author of Super

Jun 30, 2018: Ghostbow is a tale told in retrospect. Our narrator, Anaya, leads us through the story of how she won a place in a family-type group of fighters, and later loses them as the result of a war. We go back and forth between her memories of her time with her friends and the memories of what happened to her after she’d lost everyone, where her story takes a very different turn.

I wasn’t sure if the way the tale was told would keep my interest, but the author does a good job of revealing enough information to keep a reader wanting to follow along, and then switching to another story thread in a way that leaves the reader tantalized to know more about each thread.

There are some errors in the text that led me to deduct half a star; I’d recommend the author use spellcheck as well as a beta to improve the text. Overall, the read was still good with only a few places that drew me out of the story because the text flow was interrupted.

The story goes up to Chapter 7 and no further updates have been posted beyond that since last October. I hope the author picks the story back up to finish it, because this is a promising start. I’d recommend this story to anyone who likes action-oriented fantasy that is also sort of creepy/scary.

STEELSHOD

No title

By JohnCalliganWrites, author of Wayfaring Princess

Apr 1, 2018: The first chapter is really good. The setting is crisply detailed and the characters compelling. Sometimes a scene will start off a little abstract, but it’s more an artistic choice than accident, because if you read another couple sentences, everything clears up. Great stuff.
