Recommendation - Castlevania (Animated Series)

Castlevania (Animated Series)

With another week comes another recommendation! 

If you love fit bisexual vampires, moody monster-hunters, and absolutely awesome magic-users - then Castlevania is for you! 

Based on a video game series from the 80s and 90s, the animated series gave new life to the beloved characters in its Netflix adaptation. The animation is truly wonderful with the fight scenes resembling something more of a painting than a cartoon. It is also surprisingly funny for animation with so much bloodshed, heartache, and straight-up brutality. 

It is definitely fantasy with enough bad language to impress my grandmother. It is also very, consistently gory and doesn't shy away from sex either. So if any of those things jump out as a 'No' then I wouldn't recommend it for you personally. But if you don't mind that then give it a go! 

This animation has exceeded my expectations again and again with stellar writing, crazy-good characters, and a plot too wild to be missed.

2022!

 Hiya readers, passer-bys, and lost souls - good day to you! And Happy New Year!  If (like me) last year was a strange, horrid dream with no end - the new year finally arrives and brings hope for brighter days to come. I am ever the fatally optimistic.  Hopefully, this year will be full of wonder, love, and joy. I'm just excited to finally get to see the world!  Have a little Murphy to see you into the New Year.  All the best to you and yours!  Perry

Recommendation - From Blood and Ash

From Blood and Ash  My goodness, I just finished the first three books in the Blood and Ash series and I feel the need to tell the world about it.  Chosen for the chaste role of the Maiden in a land ruled by a mysterious people called the Ascended, Poppy Balfour is trapped. She cannot act freely and her life is already planned out for her. Then she meets Hawke, a dashing soldier with stunning golden eyes.    I summarised the events of the first book above because things get incredibly complicated from this point onwards and there is no way I could include more without spoiling things.  But this world is wonderful! I adore Solis and Atlantia and all the dynamics in these bloodthirsty yet charmingly rustic cultures. Armentrout always does a lovely job of descriptions - which I noticed in her other works - the Lux series (fit aliens - it works!), but here her talent really stood out. Her tone, despite the darkness of some of the plot, is surprisingly upbeat and had me grinning at the page
