Soulbrand (Weapons and Wielders Book 3 of 3) by Andrew Rowe

More so progression fantasy than LitRPG, don’t kill me.

Not writing an intro for this one as it’s book 3 in the series and would contain spoilers. I’ll just leave one sentence of the official summary for book one here:

“Keras has already got a sword of unfathomable power, but it’s damaged and leaking world-annihilating mana, so he’s in the market for a new one. Possibly six. The more the better, really.”

This was quite possibly the best book I’ve ever read. It made me feel pretty much every emotion under the sun, the fight scenes were fantastic, I love the characters more with each book and the overarching plot had me invested at every turn.

I will say that you need to do your homework for the full impact of this one and read at least 2, better yet 5, or even 8 of the author’s previous books first. That being said they’re all brilliant so that shouldn’t be a drawback.

Read this on kindle right when it came out and am now patiently waiting for the audiobook that’s set to release next month.10/10

The Day I Started Working

Hey guys. I found another game that might be fun. The name is Defender’s Depot. It’s about defending but also more like tower defense. Anyways here is the stage I am stuck on.

Stage 100. I wonder why it’s so hard

Stage 100 is very hard. Not a lot of people beat the stage. Also in the screenshot there is an event button. There it shows that you can collect pumpkins for certain prizes. Let me show you what I mean.

ugh so hard to find

I found many but ended up giving up. It was super hard.


This is the boss you fight on stage 100. Its name is the Dark Knight. I don’t know how that thing ended up as a literal flying ghost.


I kept failing over and over again. It was really not fun watching myself suffer from a video game.


Guys I finally beat stage 100. It was not fun at all. But I have to fight another boss on stage 200. WHY?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyways guys that is it for now. I really hated this because I kept losing and it made me bored and also feel very bad.

Oh and check out my books on Amazon!

Success! You're on the list.

Friend of the Site Dames Handsome to Release Book 4 in November!

Dames Handsome releases the fourth book in the Fairy Knights series:

Inspiring Children to Explore, Have Fun, and Level Up


Gimpo Si, South Korea – On November 16th, Dames Handsome will release Trees’n Tricks, the fourth book in his Fairy Knights series. Get ready for a mashup of spooky creatures doing wacky things, a rather serious high-stakes clash, and fairy tale references from Western Europe, Russia, and Korea. A fun read for Halloween fans, this spooky monster adventure is also an opportunity for children to explore, have fun, and level up.

Ching Goo, Oma Bell, and Hamster Rick, a.k.a The Fairy Knights, together with their friend Dames Handsome, are back for their fourth adventure, one that takes them into the Kingdom of Dark Deep, run by Prince Charming—who is anything but. A dark spell has turned the prince into a horrible orange monster, and he has only one day left where it can be broken. Determined to help him regain his human appearance, the Knights decide to organize a spooky pumpkin contest to find the one person who would love Prince Charming for who he really is. On their journey of creepy places to find true love, the three friends  face their weirdest enemies yet, and wind up having to escape from a forcefield prison.

“When authors write, they have a message they want to tell,” says the author. “And the most profound lesson that I have learned from all the books that I’ve read is that no matter how hard things seem at times, there is always someone else who has it harder, and they aren’t giving up. By reading this book, children will learn to deal with crises common to their age group. So far, I have dealt with feelings of jealousy, anger, sadness, imposter syndrome, and self-esteem issues. I plan to continue in that vein. They will also learn to, as one little fan told me, be good so I can level up and be a hero.”

Tricks’n Trees is a page-turning  adventure packed with unexpected plot twists. While entertaining and fun, it also highlights the power of love and friendship to overcome obstacles, and encourages kids to be tolerant and compassionate towards other people, as well as themselves—for sometimes even good people do bad things, because they feel desperate and don’t know what else to do. 

Tricks’n Trees will be available on Amazon and other major retailers.
