Mini audiobook review  35 stars OK guys I don’t really know why I give this one only a 35 stars instead of a 4 or 45I just had a hard time getting into the story despite Emily Woo Zeller’s stellar narrationI think my main problem was Anlei as she was rash reckless acting before thinking and she wanted glory If all heroes in fantasy usually end up with some glory the fact that Anlei was so focused on becoming a legend seemed childish to me Yet I am aware that others will find it very honest and refreshing To me it simply was annoying Her uest for greatness and always running into danger gave us action scenes upon action scenes without really being prepared It felt a bit “pushed” on the readerDoes that mean that Anlei had no redeeming ualities Of course not She was compassionate courageous and caring She also was a great warriorI also loved that she wanted for her Even if she was a young woman she aspired to become a warrior all traits I love in a female character If I needed time to warm up to Anlei I fell for Tai immediately   Tai is a morally grey character as he is a thief but he is oh so charming I loved how cocky he was and he was a master at sarcasm and irony He had a “devil may care” attitude and laughed in the face of danger He had swagger and boy was it attractiveI also loved how loyal he was to a fault maybe When these two meet Anlei is chasing him as he stole something and they will battle right away Every encounter was explosive until they became forced alliesBoth will embark on a uest that will lead them till the mouth of Hell and beyond  There is action battles betrayals and a fantastic steampunk worldbuilding So aside my issues with Anlei what was missing I can’t pinpoint my problem just that sometimes it felt like stop and go It lacked some smoothness maybe It also did not help that I had guessed some of the big secrets when I usually am clueless about these things I wanted to shake Anlei and tell her to just open her eyes Now the book really kicked in the last 20 percent due to Anlei’s huge character’s growth and the deeper bond between Anlei’s and Tai I can honestly say that in these last 20 percent I did not want to stop listening to the book and felt totally invested But I have never written a book so I don’t want to make you dismiss this book as it gets many excellent reviews and has many ualities I guess it just did not totally “clicked” with me  Have you read that book What did you think of it  Thanks for reading  Sophie Find me onWordpress Beware Of The ReaderFacebook Beware Of The Reader Facebook group Beware Book Boyfriends Alert Instagram bewareofthereader Twitter BewareOffReader

Check out reviews Perspective of a WriterThe BuzzDRAGONS Plus its set in an Asian world And Mary Fan seems like a popular author So when my favorite topics came up I knew I had to give it a go And I have to say that it annoys me when a title and cover don't really relate to the story The bronze dragons are incidental world building in the story which was uite disappointing to me And a bronze dragon didn't even figure into the story enough for anything or any one to be stronger than it The cover does give you a general feel for the Chinese story but could have been so much betterThe PremiseStronger Than a Bronze Dragon is really about deadly martial ghosts Not bronze dragons Not magical pearls though one is featured Anlei wants to be a warrior like her dead father and is prepared to protect her village with the rest of the guards A visiting viceroy a powerful government official sets her on a totally different path Right into a thief who threatens the deal she's made Tai has his own angst over his future but plans on doing something about it How can Anlei pass up this opportunity to screw off before heading off into matrimonyThere is some really great foundation here in ing dynasty China It's spun with fantasy and mythology without being too heavy handed about it The uick thinking and the teamwork really wowed even though the pace was a mess I appreciated the plot once it was revealed and even though the twists were a little over worked they were fun and gave the book a campy feel So many popular little details were crammed into this one little standalone Stronger Than a Bronze Dragon felt like a homage to Asian fantasy steampunk mythology thieves kickass warrior girls birth secrets and Chinese cultureMy ExperienceI absolutely adore steampunk worlds And those writers who choose them for a setting typically love them as much as I do Plus right Because they know just what to cram into the story to make it epic Stronger Than a Bronze Dragon combines steampunk with a ing dynasty China It's interesting but only has the most basic of steampunk details In that way its uite disappointing I did enjoy the twist to do with the bronze dragons and other war machines but the story wasn't really a steampunk readAnd then there was the odd balance the world had partially old fashioned and partially modern On one hand Anlei is being sent off to be married to save her village On the other hand she's been allowed to train and fight the attacking spirits The way the world viewed women didn't really have any rhyme or reason It just randomly did whatever to suit what the story needed Which is contrived I did enjoy many details of the modern side of the world like her sister the machines the acrobats the dyslexia And I found the old fashioned plot points uite dull and predictable even though I did like what mythology there was in the storyI really enjoyed Tai and Anlei's snark toward each other and how their partnership worked But it also was like a speeding bullet There were very few obstacles to the big plot points And their relationship built too fast and was sort of instalove as a result Hate to love has to have time for events to happen to shift each person's thinking about the other They have to have bonding moments This was too swift for that And that is what Stronger Than a Bronze Dragon did to me I would love some aspect of the story and HATE another It made me feel uite conflicted about my rating In the end I enjoyed the action and the snark even if the world building failed on some levelsWhy Stronger Than a Bronze Dragon may hit all the right buttons for YOU SpiritsA fascinating supernatural being with a neat history Steampunk machinesLoved the battle at the end with all the war machines you could want BanterThe snark between our leads is uite cute AdventureThey cross a lot of ground and delve into all sorts of magical secrets FamilyI happen to love when family is all embroiled in different waysStronger Than a Bronze Dragon is a light and fun standalone It's a homage to the things we love Asian fantasy steampunk mythology thieves kickass warrior girls birth secrets and Chinese culture The twists may or may not surprise you but they will certainly take you on a reading journey you won't regret with its cute banter⋆ ⋆ ⭐⭐⭐ Authenticity⋆ ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Writing Style⋆ ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Plot Pacing⋆ ⋆ ⭐⭐⭐ World BuildingC Cover Title grade Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review It has not influenced my opinionsYou can find this review and many others on my book blog Perspective of a Writer Read my special perspective under the typewriter on my reviews Please like this review if you enjoyed it bow bow It helps me out a ton
