Reviews from My Goodreads Shelf – 9/29/15

This has become a recent feature on Archer’s Aim. However, this week, I’m also on book tour with the release of The Bow of Destiny yesterday so have a look at my appearance on Entertaining Stories, hosted by fantasy author C. S. Boyack. With that said, here are some books off my Goodreads shelf.

The Darkling Child (The Defenders of Shannara #2)The Darkling Child by Terry Brooks
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I found the book to be very readable but the story is flat. The characters failed to engage me very much. Overall, I found the effort average and that the story lacked direction and purpose.

The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer's Guide to Character ExpressionThe Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide to Character Expression by Angela Ackerman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a great resource for authors. There are various categories to reference for each emotion as well as recommendations on usage, internal and external descriptions and how an emotion escalates or relates to other emotional categories.

The High Druid's Blade (The Defenders of Shannara #1)The High Druid’s Blade by Terry Brooks
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I thought this book was a bit flat for Brooks. There was lots of telling about events and character actions the left me only mildly engaged. It didn’t grab me but I did keep reading.

The Honourable SchoolboyThe Honourable Schoolboy by John le Carré
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The book meandered and then fizzled at the end. It’s hard to identify with a book that has a vague ending – there was a promise to be kept from the beginning and that goal was lost.
