Review: Sin Eater 1.6

Oh these boys. These boys are going to drive me up a wall. Can you go into a book and knock some sense into people? Please tell me you can, because I need to.

The demons are still making your skin crawl, like they do. People are still making decisions that have you screaming at them, like you do. And there’s a great little blip at the end that had me clapping. All in all another well balanced and well paced episode that has me excited to see what happens in the final episode.

The only downsides I can think of were one typo, probably due to the aggressive, and reader-centric publishing schedule, and the number of characters involved. As of episode six, I almost needed to go back and look at previous episodes to keep track of everyone; not a problem for those of you who read the entire thing together. But if you were waiting for two weeks between each episode or are putting space between them going forward, your dance card is getting a little full for a serial in my humble opinion.

Sin Eater 1.5 Review

*** ONCE AGAIN, VAGUE BUT POSSIBLE SPOILERS! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK! ***

Yaaay!

If you remember from my review of the previous episode, I talked about balance. Balancing the demon hunting apocolyptic-ness with the depraved demon WTF-ness.

And so I got balance. Yay!

There were a few wincey moments for me, not that they were anything awful. I’m just a softie for pets and babies. But like I said, brief and not terrible; more of a, “I know how bad this can get, oh no, here it comes… oh. Well then. Moving on.” Again, lots of explanations, and the writing is such that it in no way slows down the pacing. I’m actually really confused as to how things are all going to get wrapped up in only two more episodes.

Unless there’s a sequel! EEEP!

And then ending! Omigosh the ending!! It’s perfect. Just enough, without being too much. Read it, you’ll get what I’m saying. I’m so satisfied with the last chapter I almost don’t want anymore episodes. Let’s just let ***** and ****** have some happy ending for once…

Hell, who am I kidding? I’m an author too. We live to make our characters suffer.

Sin Eater 1.1 Review

There are two big things that stick out at me for episode one. First, if you like Supernatural, then this book is for you. In my fanfic brain, Nik, Sin Eater’s protagonist, meets up with Sam and Dean for a hunting trip. Wise cracks, action, and drama ensue, and there are no hiccups because Nik is that well written.

The second thing I want to mention, because I don’t remember seeing it in the first blurb I read, is that Nik is gay. And you know what? Good for him. So far any romance/sex scenes are no worse than what I’ve read in regards to a straight couple. So for those of you who, like myself, tend to shy away from M/M romance, (I find it hard to get swept away by beautiful men I can never, ever have. Maybe I’m still jaded from Derek my freshman year at college,) I encourage you to try this anyway. The writing mechanics are clean, the story so far is developed, and even though I can’t have him, I’m already rooting for Nik in episode 2.
