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: Grave Mercy

Grave Mercy Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Dull and predictable. The ending was also weird- did they solve all their problems off-screen?
For an assassination book, there's not much assassinating and a good deal too much kissing. This would also have been a much stronger book had the author not shied away from the seduction aspect.
The villain is incredibly obvious. The plot in general bored me.
Ismae is honestly disturbing. She's just fine killing people until it affects her own emotions. It's hypocritical and does not make me believe that she truly is devoted to her god, as she of course later decides that doing whatever she wants is the best way to serve him. Her faith was really the part I respected about her most- at times she really did seem willing to serve her god regardless of the emotional rifts it might create, but in the end she chooses her own selfish desires.
In general, disappointing.
