Lenni Reviews: "Angel Fever" by May Ridge

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

Malachi is the most talented male angel healer in a generation but despite his inflated ego about his talents, one thing still bothers him. Mal is an orphan and he's on the search for his mother. He returns to his childhood orphanage and the current priest working there, Tobias, tells him that despite it not being exactly within the rules, he will let Mal look at his records. However, it seems this mother's name is missing. As they dig deeper, Mal and Tobias discover a dark secret hidden among the priests which will put both their lives in danger.  

The whole thing could have been an interesting longer book but as a short story; it feels rushed. If given more time, the world could have had more time to build and thusly would have been better understood. The relationship between Mal and Tobias would have had more time to develop so they have real chemistry instead of just a line drop about how they've been working together for two months. A concept with potential but not enough room to grow, I give this a 3 out of 5.

Hello Fellow Otakus and Geeks!

Hello everyone!! It has been FOREVER since I have written anything and I want to explain why. Its been a really busy year and I have been doing a lot of growing lately. I've been in a slump for a very long time and its only recently that I have gained enough confidence to accomplish things especially with my writing. And so I will do my best to stay on top of reviews and articles to the best of my ability. I will continue to write some fanfiction and poems on my Tumblr (Persona of the Heart or lovelyanimeangel) and post them on the site as well. My goal is to have my first review article to be about Persona 5, however it is a MASSIVE game and I haven't reached the nearly the end of it. So instead I may review another game that comes up or an old one that I want to play again.

I want to thank everyone who has been a fan of our site from the beginning and your patience with us, especially me, as creators. You all are awesome. And so until next time...

You All Rule!!!

Lenni Reviews: "Wounded Pride" by Remmy Duchene and B.L. Morticia

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review and is rated 18+

Brian Daystar is celebrating the opening of his youth center for at-risk kids but notices a considerable lack of support from his country music star boyfriend, Corey. When Corey finally bothers to call Brian, he's drunk and not alone. Deciding to end it, Brian takes a vacation to New York to face Corey while staying with Renford Kline; a retired attorney considering becoming a law professor. Brian is attracted to Renford but Ren's experience with men has never gone beyond college experimenting. Both are attracted but Brian's past traumas and Ren's reluctance to get feelings involved may keep them from the happily ever after they have been wishing for.

First off? Ren, 39 isn't 'old man' territory. I could see if he was pushing 55 (seeing as he's retiring) but, no.

This is one of those romances where you think there would be more time spent on building the relationship between the main pair before they hop into bed but nope. Not really a criticism on my part; just saying the writing and tone made me expect that. As is, the flaw in this standard romance cycle is I feel some of the character elements could have been explored more; like Brian's pretty dark past and Redford's previous attraction to women. It doesn't make the book bad at all. In fact, I find it sweet and the smutty bits are written well. But those deep personal issues could have used more attention. A fun romp even if I was left a bit wanting; 3.7 out of 5.

Cryptozoic and Don’t Panic Games Announce Release of Attack on Titan: The Last Stand

Posted By Justin D Williams

Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, in partnership with Don’t Panic Games, today announced the July 26 release of Attack on Titan: The Last Stand. Based on the popular Attack on Titan anime series, this 2-5 player asymmetric board game puts one player in the role of a fearsome Titan, while the other players are brave Heroes trying to protect the Tower that guards the last human city. Designed by the award-winning Antoine Bauza and Ludovic Maublanc, the game requires strategic utilization of dice and features unique vertical gameplay, as the Heroes move up and down both the Tower and the 15-inch tall Titan Standee.

“Players are going to love the unique play experience crafted by Antoine and Ludo,” said Adam Sblendorio, Vice President of Creative at Cryptozoic. “They’ve captured the essence of an epic fight between humans and a monstrous Titan, creatively using a Titan itself as the setting for the battle.”

In Attack on Titan: The Last Stand, up to 4 players become Heroes, with choices including fan-favorite characters Eren, Mikasa, and Armin. Each Hero has a standee and a card with distinctive abilities that the player must utilize in order to take down the Titan. Teamwork is key to victory, as the Hero players need to work together to use Tactics Cards that have powerful effects. Players each roll five custom dice that let them move between the different Levels of the Titan and Tower, attack with Cannons or swords, and dodge devastating blows. Players can re-roll these dice as many times as they want, with one caveat: Every time they roll a Titan symbol, they lose that die.
 
The dice with the Titan symbol can be used by the Titan player, who can choose to be either a Basic, Destructive, Deviant, or Voracious Titan. During each round, the Titan’s first Action Card is placed face up, and the second one face down. Therefore, the Hero players know what the Titan intends to do with the first Action Card, and may try to thwart his plans by allocating the dice symbols shown on the card. But since the second Action Card is a complete mystery (and can be deadly), the Heroes may sometimes choose to suffer the effects of the first Action Card so they can keep their symbols for the hidden card.
 
If the Titan eats all 12 Citizens, destroys all six cannons, or crushes a Hero’s three hearts, humanity’s last stand fails and the Titan wins. Just like the anime, the Heroes can only win one way: They must kill the Titan by slashing his neck. With eight different Heroes and four Titans—each with a separate oversized card and deck—every game will be markedly different.

Attack on Titan: The Last Stand will be available at retailers nationwide July 26 for a suggested retail price of $40.
