An Elf nicknamed Zac That s enough to DNR for me right there Let s break down the synopsis now the author puts feeding his family and avoiding a love interest into the same priority category Seriously Wtf is with the cover art It looks like something that would belong to gay fantasy fanfic featuring an Elf that works part time as a go go dancer in a gay club in Orlando And I say that as a gay guy living in Orlando YA can t we demand better than this garbageEDIT Okay gang I need to add a postscript to this review months after I wrote itI know I m getting huge hate but I m not changing this review At the time it was written I reviewed not the book s contents but what we knew about it The cover art and the synopsis While I wrote a review based on things we knew about an unreleased book others were giving this thing high starred reviews just because Those same people then attacked me for reviewing a book before it was released Hypocritical much First of all I still hate this fucking cover Seriously this guy got totally swindled with it Critiuing a cover is of course legitimate If you re turned off by a book s synopsis and cover are you or less likely to buy the book Give me a breakSoon after I posted it the author himself put me on twitter blast and got his social media acolytes to come and harass me on here Then THE AUTHOR CHANGED HIS OWN SYNOPSIS ON HERE It used to read Zacriah Trovirn is concerned with two things in life feeding his family and dodging Petrer the boy who broke his heartand now readsZacriah Trovirn is concerned with two things in life hunting and dodging Petrer the boy who broke his heartSo this guy attacks me on twitter and gets his foolish Jonestown clan to go after me then takes some of my criticism WTF Also on this point let s discuss the synopsis uotes on the cover A world in ruin A kingdom of lies Okay so why is that shit not in the main synopsis Instead we re spoon fed this silly over prioritized gay romance meanwhile the world is in ruins In YOUR MAIN SYNOPSIS This whole thing is just a poorly executed messNext let s get rid of the notion that anything about this is original Elves with light hair pointy ears magic and different colored blood is not original It s a straight up Lord of the RingsEragon ripoff The only original thing about it is it s almost exclusively gay characters which is the primary thing being marketed about this book Not the story not the personality of the mains not the conflict the sexuality I ll discuss my issues with this next Taken from the author s own twitter page here are some blatant rip offs Alorian elves have golden blood Morthi elves live in underground caverns Mirkwood elves anyone Niraen elves ride elks Again Mirkwood infringement THIS SHIT IS NOT ORIGINAL My final enormous critiue of this book is the marketing and I need to elaborateI love YA I love LGBT fiction I love YA LGBT fiction My top YA favorites is the Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo They feature ueer characters My issue with Ben Alderson is that he exploits his and my sexuality to sell books He knows his fan girls will go crazy if he shells them some ueer romance He uses gay characters as blatant tropes to market his book Six of Crows isn t a story constructed around gay characters It s LGBT characters constructed inside a story Its seamless and not abused This is how you do ueer in fiction not my trumpeting your work as having gay characters and oh yeah some other stuff too How YA readers who apparently are offended at anything and everything can tolerate blatant gay exploitation is beyond me , main basse sur le futur his family and avoiding a love interest into the same priority category Seriously Wtf is with the cover art It looks like something that would
