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.

Horde - Ann Aguirre

“Because I love you.' It was easy to say it this time now that I understood what it meant. Then I quoted his own words back to him. 'Not just when it's easy. All the time.” 

For a minute there I think my heart stopped. 

I’ve had my bad share of series-finale books. Some got left me sad, some left me disappointed, and some even left me incredibly ticked off. So I was wary while reading Horde. I was wishfully thinking this would not blow up in my face. Thankfully, Ann Aguirre did not fail me. Oh! Thank you, Ms. Aguirre for such a wonderful ending!

I hadn’t put a lot of thought to this series when I first started off with Enclave. To me, it felt like another one of those zombie stories, blah, blah and blah. But then when I met Deuce and Fade, they poked my interest over what kind of story these characters would be going through. And so I fell in love with these two, and over time, as I watch them grow I couldn’t bear to think of these two apart.

Deuce has always been a strong character from the start. But it was humbling to see a sensitive side of her. The more she grew to learn things about life and love that has been deemed unfit for a Huntress during her days in the enclave, the more lovable Deuce became. She has truly grown so much over the course of her journey. She truly lived up as the heroine I always believed her to be.

Fade may have been the quiet one from the start, but there is no denying the aura of strength he seems to embody. Needless to say, I couldn’t get enough of Fade! He was just prefect, never mind that he was a little broken after the events of Outpost, time helped him heal, and I was so glad that Deuce was there to support him all throughout.

“I didn't ask if he meant his rescue or the deal with Stalker that involved kissing. I couldn't resist pushing, just a little. "So it won't bother you if I find someone else?"

His jaw clenched, and I saw the muscle move before he got it under control. "I thought you said you'd fight for me."

"And you said it's too late." I offered him a faint smile along with his watch. "So it's a good thing I don't intend to listen to you.”

It was unfortunate to see Stalker’s fate, but it seemed fitting. In some way, he was able to redeem himself of his mistakes.

I love that this was equal parts action, adventure, and romance, it didn’t stray far out from its prose – unlike some books (yes, I’m bitter about a specific finale, take a wild guess. LOL).

Horde was a fitting ending to the Razorland Trilogy. It really gave me the kind of closure I needed for this story.
