Feralia.net blog. episode 37: Review – Hyrule Historia

One of my favorite fantasy worlds since I was a kid has always been The Legend of Zelda. Ask any fan of the series and they’ll likely agree that the gameplay, stories, music and atmosphere all come together to create a truly immersive experience.

The book is huge, a solid hardback (measuring 12 inches x 9 inches and weighing 4 pounds) which is super high quality and bound beautifully with extra thick pages. This is definitely one of the nicest quality books I’ve seen. The gold text on the cover is also reflective, which is difficult to show in the above picture, but impressive when holding the actual book.

The feature I was most excited about is the timeline, which puts every Zelda release up to that point in order, laid out nicely, and makes the multiple timelines easy to understand. After playing the series for so many years it was really cool to see everything put into a chronological order. This of course excludes Breath of the Wild, which wasn’t released yet.

The newest game at the time of release was Skyward Sword, so there’s a pretty big section devoted to it. I’ve gotten mixed feelings on the game itself when talking to people at it at conventions, but regardless of how you like the game, the content for it in Hyrule Historia is pretty impressive. The art style is beautiful, and there are tons of character and monster profiles, concept art, and so on.

The other games get some love as well, with sections for each of them featuring art and detailed story summaries. (Just beware spoilers on any you haven’t played.) The nostalgia is wonderful. Seeing all the different versions of Link over the years was one of my favorite features.

I’m really glad I picked up a copy, even though it was pretty late. If you’re a Zelda fan and like to collect anything from the series, this book is a must!

Feralia.net blog. episode 37: A short yet awkward conversation

20190423_122749

The other day I was in a local grocery store and a store employee, an older gentleman, stopped me to ask me about my hat (I was wearing my Rebel Alliance hat).

[ Read in a redneck accent]
“What’s that on your hat? That there orange thing?” he asked me.

“Oh, that’s the Rebel Logo,” I replied. “From Star Wars.”

He stared at me for a long moment, looking a little confused.

Finally, he says [and don’t forget the redneck accent]: “Oh. I thought it was one o’ them, middle eastern…. terrorism or somethin’.”

At this point I thought maybe he was joking, but it was clear from his expression that he wasn’t.

Not knowing what to say I managed to reply, “Umm… nah.”

With that he turned and walked away without another word. I was glad he did because I was at a loss for words myself.

I just stared after him and said “Ooookay.”

So weird. On so many levels.

Feralia.net blog. episode 36: Review – Wildflowers by Victoria Yost

My schedule has been crazy lately with the new book finally coming out (and learning all the marketing that goes along with it) and my busy convention season starting up, but despite that I was able to squeeze in a new book to read! I’m really glad that I did, and wanted to feature it today.
Wildflowers
Wildflowers, the debut novel by Victoria Yost is a fiction novel in which an epidemic decimates the human population. I don’t normally read a lot of stories that take place in our world, and I think that’s partially why the story seemed very real to me. It’s something that in reality isn’t far fetched. What would you do if a disease ravaged the population, causing society around you to crumble? Wildflowers puts you in the shoes of a young woman named Mona Lancaster, who is forced to answer this question as her life is turned upside down.

I won’t get into the story too much for fear of possible spoilers, but I will say that Yost does a great job painting a sometimes very harsh picture of this not so hard to believe scenario, with vivid descriptions of the sights and smells of this new kind of world. It’s not all gloom and doom, however. In fact, despite the sometimes dark subject matter, Wildflowers has a warmth that shines through. Mona is a very likable main character, and I found myself attached to and concerned about not only her, but the cast of characters around her, too.

There are some tense and exciting moments over the journey, and even some romance. And if you’re not big into romance (like myself) you can rest assured that those moments are well done and aren’t overly mushy. 😉

In conclusion, I found Wildflowers to be a great story that I’d definitely recommend, and I’m looking forward to Victoria’s next story!

You can find Wildflowers HERE.
