chocolate pudding or bitter gourd relief

review #1

[8.1.16.]

 


 

"new here?

welcome to markath, traveller. safest city in the reach."

 

the title: silence's voice

author: ms holly

date published: 24 september 2015

rated: yellow

genre: fanfiction
sub-genre: gaming fanfiction

age: four months, sixteen days old (as of 8th january 2016)

chapters: 13

status: in progress

blurb: 'other' fanfiction. category: at, or alternate timeline. same universe as canon, but a different point in that universe's history. just an assassin. nothing more since fourteen, when the murder of thieving wood elf who got what he deserved ended in recruitment into the shadowy cult of assassins at home in the deep deserts of anequina. until she decided to interfere. she decided to ruin everything!

 

at first glance:

i was confused because i've never played the elder scrolls series so i wiki-ed the whole thing to get a more clearer view of this fanfiction, but there were too many timelines and games to go through at once. so forgive me if there are some concepts i don't understand.

 

chapter one: someone else's contract

no complains at all. the writing is amazing. got no idea about the game or the plot of the game, but your book really calls out to be read .

 

chapter two: soundly asleep

the names used in the book are... rather different. maybe their names of the characters in the game, but for a newbie, it's a bit tough to remember. not that it is a problem. just an observation. references to the game has been used frequently, at times it leaves me confused, but still interested. the .

 

chapter three: a mother's voice

no complains again. the writing is just wonderful, it's like you can really see everything happens. the pace of the story is good. the progression through each chapter, and the build up the real adventure from chapter one to this chapter was a nice read.


chapter four: snow of skyrim

the descriptions used. the phrases. the words. they add to the entire feel to the story. and as a non-player, it helps to understand the setting of the story. there's a few words that really struck me that were used in this chapter-

"charcoal and ash. the scratchy leftovers of fire."

a really nice touch.

 

chapter five: the contact

the quote i used near the title is taken from this chapter. the keyword is 'safest', for what i make of this story is that the narrator is damn good assassin and in a way, safety for her isn't that much of an issue. she can deal with the world's scariest shit and still be okay. though there are times where's scared and runs away, but she does put up a great fight. and i love it.

 

 

over-all impression:

you have created a strong independent female protagonist. it's a nice change to the love-sick girls in other books. it's a really nice book. wish i had played the game so i understood better at first, but i got the hang of it and it's amazing how you wrote it. savil felaano is an amazing character that i'd like to read more about. 

 

recommendations:
i know they say 'don't judge a book by it's cover',' but i'd recommend a cover that better fits the whole feel of the story. the cover's a bit vampirish (probably the red eyes), but something more skyrim-ish would be lovely.


verdict:  :-D a big smiley, i give you a chocolate pudding.
