Update Schedule

There was once an update schedule. It lived a good life, a peaceful life. A quiet life. But then... things began to change. It became more and more erratic, sometimes completely disobeying its very reason for existance. And at last, the update schedule could take no more. It cast off its chains and went free, seeking new lands where it would be appreciated. This message it left where once it had lived, to warn other schedules of the peril.

Review: The Autumn Republic

The Autumn Republic The Autumn Republic by Brian McClellan
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I enjoyed it, which I didn't the second, and I found myself caring what happened again. That's why two stars, because I can't really pretend it was more than okay. McClellan's world feels lazy to me- differences between it and our own are too hard to find for a fantasy novel. Plants, animals (with the exception of a cave lion, but it's never been clear to me if those actually exist), people, technology, seasons- it's all the same. His plot is too neat and tidy, and yet there are still too many loose ends for my taste. He's created an excellent final thesis for Brandon Sanderson's class, but as a published fantasy series there's something lacking.
