Spotlight: Cerberus Rex Audio Adventure

About Cerberus Rex:
Cerberus Rex is an hour and a half long audio adventure, presented entirely through dialogue, sound effects and music (no narrator). The list of influences is long but a few of the bigger ones are John Carpenter, Shane Black and H.P. Lovecraft. The action influences are Cameron, Spielberg and McTiernan.

In Cerberus Rex, Dr. Anabela Correia, an astrophysics professor at Hawksmoor University, travels upon request by a former colleague to Well Station, a research facility performing experiments on a strange phenomenon in an underground cave. A natural explorer, Ana rushes to view the oddity first-hand and, accompanied by Well Station Security/Containment Officer Benjamin Wyngarde, is soon staring down at a mystery of physics hidden deep. Then… not so deep.

Fantasy Book Review: The Dragon’s Curse

The Dragon’s Curse by Bethany Wiggins

Six months ago, Princess Sorrowlynn stood beside Prince Golmarr to defeat the glass dragon. But when the prince almost killed her after inheriting the dragon’s curse of hatred, he went into hiding to keep Sorrow safe . . . from himself.

Now the princess has been training to become a great warrior, with the hope of finding Golmarr. But her search proves difficult when she discovers she has been wed to the prince of an enemy kingdom. Desperate to end her forced marriage and be reunited with her true love, Sorrow must find a way to escape her captor husband. But there’s just one more dangerous obstacle in her way. A two-headed dragon is hunting her and will stop at nothing until she is dead.

Can Sorrow summon the courage to wield the only sword that can defeat the beast and save her world from the destruction of the dragon’s curse?

Princess Sorrowlynn has been living and training with her betrothed’s family while he tries to overcome the emotions from the dragon he killed. But Sorrowlynn faces another obstacle with the man that she loves, when she discovers that her father has married her off to another prince instead. Her father thinks the marriage was for political reasons, but this new prince knows about her new magical abilities. Meanwhile, a two-headed dragon is hunting Sorrowlynn and she begins having visions of a young woman asking for her help.

The Dragon’s Curse is the second installment in an exciting, fantasy trilogy. Sorrowlynn is now a stronger person, with the bravery and fortitude that I was hoping she’d gain. This latest story is well-paced, with plenty of action, drama, mystery, and a bit of romance. There is no middle book slump here. The characters are engaging and the plot is unpredictable. The suspense builds to a surprising finale – that left me wanting more and impatient for the final book in the series.

SciFi Book Review: Scythe

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.

Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.

Citra and Rowan are confident and determined young adults who stand up for what they believe. Because of this, they are both chosen to be an apprentice to a scythe. Neither of them wants to kill, but it will keep their families safe from “gleaning” (death).

Scythe is the first in a fantastic, dystopian series for teens. The subject matter may be hard and a bit dark for some. But this has to be some of the best worldbuilding and character development I’ve ever read. To keep the Earth’s population under control, scythes kill without prejudice. And despite having their own governing body, the scythes each have their own philosophy and way of gleaning. Some are much more brutal than others. Citra and Rowan have to make some hard choices and are forced into some heart-wrenching situations. With plenty of plot twists along the way, this story is engaging, thought-provoking, and intense until the very end. I can’t wait to jump into the next installment.

4K Blu-Ray Review: Justice League

Justice League 4K Blu-Ray

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

When the evil Steppenwolf arrives from another world, he threatens to remake Earth into a hellish landscape. And only a team of super heroes can hope to defeat him. Batman and Wonder Woman seek out Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg to help. But the newly formed team is awkward and disjointed. And Steppenwolf is unlike any villain they have fought before.

Justice League has been the culmination of several films to a big team-up movie. DC hasn’t had the best track record lately with films, Wonder Woman being the exception. The pacing is a bit disjointed. The gathering of the team slows the film down, when the pacing should be sped up as Steppenwolf is only growing stronger as he gathers the mysterious boxes (that resemble the tesseract from Avengers). In fact, it’s hard not to compare Justice League to the Marvel films. Thankfully, this wasn’t as dark as Batman v Superman and contained a lot more humor. Ezra Miller as The Flash was great comedy relief, and a great character with the role of an over-excited little brother. In fact, the three newest recruits have the most interesting backstories that demand standalone films. While there wasn’t any character-development in the villain, we were able to get more story from the team leading up to an exciting finale.

The most disappointing element – that just about ruined the film for me, was Henry Cavill’s ridiculous CGI-removed mustache. It was awful and hard to ignore. It would have been better if he was written out of the film altogether. Despite the faults, it was still an entertaining film with bits of promise for future films. It was certainly action-packed and full of suspense. I still look forward to future DC films, hoping they learn from past mistakes.
