    1 thought on “The Boy and the Peddler of Death”

    1. This was just unnecessarily wordy and pretentious. I just did not enjoy it at all. Which makes me sad because the summary says it's for fans of Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and World of Warcraft. Aka three of my favorite things. So how did I loathe this so entirely from page one? I don't know.

    2. After just having finished the book, I really have to say that this was not what I expected.I feel like this is nothing more than the author trying to sell his philosophical ideas by using a fantasy world as a wrapper. This is not what I expected from a book labeled as High Fantasy.The character development to me felt shallow. I never really felt attached to any one character. Everything was presented as a long string of historical events that gets washed down with a heavy swig of the authors pe [...]

    3. Incoherent mess of outdated tropes. Imagine a science-fiction novel where the protagonist had to equip power armor to fight insect monsters or fly space fighters against an evil empire. Dylan Saccoccio mixed together some fantasy novels and video games, added a bit of pretentious language, and now sells it as "for fans of".No, but just because I am a fan of A doesnt mean I read everything with the lowest common denominator.

    4. I saw the author's reaction to a low review go viral, and after reading his comments, thought that maybe the book wouldn't be half bad and the reviewer was being too harsh on him.I got two pages into the preview.First of all, a foreword OR a prologue. Both is overkill. But considering the author's tendency towards the sesquipedalian, I presume overkill would be a recurring theme.If a reader needs to take a breath in the middle of reading one of your sentences aloud; then Mr. Saccoccio -- you nee [...]

    5. No one ever starts a fight.Whether it's a street brawl or a war, both sides always insist they're defending against an aggressor who (figuratively or literally) threw the first punch.Considering that no one in the world ever plays anything but reluctant defense, you'd think this planet would be a heck of a lot more peaceful than it currently is. But as you've no doubt noticed, when we're not ducking and covering on an actual battlefield, we're engaging in heated wars of words on the home front.Q [...]

    6. Really, really awful. How anyone could think this drivel was worth wasting their time on is beyond me. Like most positive reviews for this book, I am an aquaintance of the author's, got it as a gift, and really tried to like it. Alas, unlike the others, I did not find it within me to lie for a friend. Dylan, if you're reading this, for everyone's good, find a form of employment that requires little literacy, and no creativity at all. And for God's sake stop boring everyone to death with your hal [...]

    7. This book is awful. How bad? Well, I got the book free via Kindle Unlimited, but I still think I deserve some sort of refund for the time wasted on it.People, learn from my folly. Avoid this book.

    8. Wow, just wow. Obviously I tried reading this after the hype on the review page, and I'm sorry, but I didn't like it. Not the story, but the writing. This is a series, right? Cool down. You don't need to expound your worldview right out of the gate. Either write a coherent book of philosophy or fiction--remember the 50 pages or so in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, when Galt gives his speech on the radio? 95% of readers skip that entire section, whether or not you believe they're better off for it, b [...]

    9. Too few pages, very loquacious and pretentious, overused cliches and not worth the time or money.This piece of writing is a crude mixture of overused tropes, cliches, worn out one dimensional characters, and a plotl that is as predictable as death and taxes. The author tries too hard to appeal to fans of fantasy movies and games by employing every cliche from the usual repertoire of said movies and books in a very child-like fashion. But in the end too much words and pretentious writing messes u [...]

    10. Since my first review sadly got deleted, I have to add another. I got this for free via Kindle Unlimited and managed to read it all the way through. It took me longer than a book this size should have taken because it is so wordy and written so poorly that you start to mentally drift away from the book and realize you sort of just skimmed the last three paragraphs - so you go back and read them, only to find it didn't really matter anyway. I know my time hasn't been well-spent when I feel like I [...]

    11. I can’t bring myself to even say this book is okay(2 stars). I really didn’t like it at all. I got it through kindle unlimited so thankfully all I wasted was time. Incoming giant review. There was just so much I hated I have to get it all out there.Let’s start with the part labeled “Foreword”. It’s a bunch of wishy washy garbage like “To you, that you may awaken to understand that the whole universe is a dance of energy, and that energy is God, and that energy is you.” And ends w [...]

    12. This book makes me feel better about myself as an author. No matter how bad my writing is, I know I'll never be THIS bad.I first found out about this book when the author turned a single review into a damning train wreck. Once I saw the wreckage, I decided to take his advice and read the sample. I'm so glad I did. It's almost worth buying the thing, just so I can look it up every time I'm feeling bad about myself.I'm not going to go deep into what's wrong with it. You've seen the same thing ever [...]

    13. This is the best book I have ever read in my life. It has everything I want in a book. It has pages and most of those pages have words on them. Furthermore, the words form into sentences and you can read from one sentence to the next and it eventually forms a sort of story, if you will. My eyes got a little tired because it turns out there is quite a bit of reading involved. The other aspect is the turning of pages. At one point, my hands started to cramp up because I was gripping the book so ti [...]

    14. After reading the spectacular comment thread about this book yesterday, I decided I would try reading the sample (the book DID have a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews, and I'm an avid fantasy reader). I thought if it snagged me, I might even purchase the whole book.I have to say, my single star seems completely justified now.1) The preface is at least partially plaigirized from a speech available on Youtube.2) The graphic depiction of violence (there's a florid description of eyeballs leaving sockets [...]

    15. This is a terribly written book whose prose is the purplest I've ever seen. The style of writing is terrible and takes forever to wade through. It is not remotely in the same vein as Game of Thrones or Harry Potter beyond being labeled as fantasy. If you're expecting any sort of high fantasy epic adventuring, you'll be sorely disappointed. I do not understand why it is compared to those works. It has none of the depth, characterization or story development that mark a good story. It's merely the [...]

    16. If you don't get the reference, this gif is from the song by En Vogue called "Never Gonna Get it (My Lovin')". So this book is never gonna get my love.

    17. Just too obviously derivative; overwritten. With a good editor and humility this author might write something I'd want to read, because he's not without virtues.So didn't download whole, as felt I'd be disappointed and the effort of thinking oneself into this world wouldn't be rewarded.

    18. 2015 has been a bad year for me because I've read three--and now four--books in a couple of different genres united by an overarching theme: faux literary, purple painful prose pretentiousness, marred further by a plethora of putative poetic phrasing. In other words, folks, the writing was so awful that it was virtually impossible to dig through the rococo veneer to discover the plot, if there was one, or the characters.When one stumbles over the first sentence in the Foreword twice, and the fir [...]

    19. Q: Do you have empathy?A: Sometimes.Q: Do you know what it's like to make something for a living?A: Maybe.Q: Are you human?A: I think so.Q: Or do you just look at other people like they're automatons that you can slander as though your actions don't manifest consequences?A: Huh?So, in order to avoid suppressing the consciousness of humanity, I won't be reading this book.

    20. I didn't read this book, because I'm a smart man who doesn't need to read books about wizards or whatever. It looks HELLA dumb ya'll do yrselves a favor read a cool book, like La Jalousie by international playboy Alain Robbe-Grillet

    21. After the attack the author made on a one star review I warrant this book not worth my time. I find some indie authors are just so hurt over every little thing. Even one small rating tears their whole world apart which is ridiculous. You can not expect everyone to love your writing/work/art. Sorry the world does not work like that. And until you accept that you will never be anything more than a mad indie author hovering over your reviews getting angry at your readers.

    22. This book definitely reminds me of the Hobbit story, but instead of the focus on Bilbo its focused on Thorin. Just less orc an gobliny, if you will. I did enjoy it, I thought it was well written and very creative. For a fantasy it was well paced as your being drawn into the story. As with most fantasy novels your going to have a lot of unusual terms and names, which does add to the story, so if your looking for a Bob or a Brittney, your not gonna find it. The Tale of Onora starts out introducing [...]

    23. I'm not much of a fantasy reader although I love watching them. Game Of Thrones, Lord Of The Rings, Harry Potter, awesome but the book sometimes get complicated to follow.In this case it was the opposite (although the imagery here would make a great movie or series) I saw the book shout-out on Twitter and decided to look it up. When I did I was intrigued by the cover and book description. Seeing the almost unanimous 5 star reviews made this an easy purchase.The author clearly has a command of th [...]

    24. Awful book. Characters are poorly constructed and very flat. The book itself is pretentious and far too wordy. The author seems to be trying to convey a GRR Martin persona with regards to the style he's chosen but this book doesn't have the ability to pull it off. All the pomp and nothing to back it up. Disappointing.

    25. Usually, I try not to judge a book that I've never read without at least giving it a chance. But here, I feel perfectly fine not bothering with it. If the author's reaction to people not liking his work is any indicator - and this certainly would not be the first time I've seen an author who enjoys thesaurus-thumping and spouting off faux-philosophical trite rather than put any effort into the actual story get pissy over a review they didn't like - then his work will be equally as poor quality, [...]
