Like Most Sequels....

We'll I've begun Reading "Vadriel Vail" and like most Hollywood sequels, the second does not measure up to the first. It's as if it has been written by a COMPLETELY different author. Or one who has had a major incident in his life taint his view.

On a brighter Note....

"Kirith Kirin" is starting out MUCH BETTER

A bit confusing, with new religions, odd ball names like Welsh and Gaelic on CRACK, but thus far chapter one is intriguing. It's hard to review ANYTHING yet, because it’s just setting up our Hero "Jessex" it's told in his POV and he is telling you of his "Unremarkable" birth and childhood.

No bells, whistles, great cosmic sooth saying fortunes, just a normal farm life with loving siblings, good parents, and odd grandmother.

Until his maternal Uncle shows up after like 20 years after disappearing, asking for a child he has NEVER MET by name.. the adventure begins. (Jessex at this point of the story is only fourteen).

I like it.
