The Blair Book Project

Hello! I'm Janus. I am a 3D Graphics Artist by profession, and a proud Book Addict - i mean Enthusiast, and Blogger. I'm very much into Young Adult and Fantasy genre but I open myself to reading other genres from time to time. I run a blog launched as The Blair Book Project on Blogger, where I post entries such as my book reviews and other book related articles. I obviously got the name of this blog for the movie "The Blair Witch Project," why the name you may ask? I have no idea! I just thought it had a good ring to it. Ha! Ha! I post reviews twice a week and I regularly participate in book memes and features that readers and blogger all over the globe share their book interests (i.e. In My Malibox, Top Ten Tuesdays, etc). I have 230 GFC Followers. My blog has over 37,000 pageviews history and have roughly 200 page views per day. I have written over 267 reviews since my span of blogging. I am also an avid Instagram user, with over 350 followers, where I post pictures mostly of books I'm currently reading, books I got for review, galleys, purchased from bookstores, etc. (Statistics as of March 2013). My book reviews are not exactly "reviews" in a sense because I simply just type down what I feel about the book. What I write is solely my opinion and should not be taken as a definite basis of how the book is to be judged entirely. We all have different likes and dislikes so please do understand that although I'm very optimistic about the books I read, there will be negative comments towards those that I don't find suiting for my taste.

Rogue Descendant (Nikki Glass)

Rogue Descendant - Jenna Black Warning: This review contains spoilers.This is slightly less exciting than the first two novels from the Nikki Glass series written by Jenna Black. With how book two, Deadly Descendant ended, I expected to see more of the whole Liberi lot to be working together now that they were established as part of Nikki’s life. Not that I mind looking into Nikki’s point-of-view, but thinking that they all live together in one roof, I expected that a deeper bond has been created with each and every one of them, considering all that they’ve been through previously. So it kind of dampened my excitement knowing that Nikki was working alone again.In spite of that, there are still some interesting surprises going on. For one, I’ve always thought Anderson was a father-figure to the Liberi living within his mansion. I never thought he’d have feelings for Nikki that would run deeper than platonic affection. That was weird. Isn’t he like way older than her? Ew?!I was fascinated about Sita, a phantom tiger that Jamaal can call to manifest from his death magic. I keep wondering how Jamaal can be able to control her especially once the crucial moment comes that he really needs Sita – that didn’t happen. All he did was practice, kind of a letdown right there. Although she did kind of ruin a very exciting moment for Jamaal and Nikki – man that was just cruel! Ha! Ha! Ha! With the hot scene between Nikki and Jamaal in Deadly Descendant, I thought they would finally take their relationship to another level but, alas they started dancing around it once again. The mystery behind who was causing the fire hazards that surround Nikki was kind of predictable. I already knew who the culprit was the moment that person came into picture. But that was okay, I didn’t mind that it lost its unexpectedness. What bothered me was the culprit’s reason for doing so. It seemed so petty. Probably the most disappointing part for me was Anderson’s failure to use his powers. He is a god after all, right? What good were his powers and his ability to come back from the dead when he didn’t get to help Nikki in her time of need? I’m not sure how many books there would be in this series but judging from the ending of Rogue Descendant, there’s a fourth book upcoming, other than that I’m not sure how many are in store for us readers.
