Shadow Worlds: A Space Fantasy Adventure (Shadow Corps Book 2) - Justin Sloan

Way too much teenage stuff.

 

Very immature magic teenager up to save the universe, has enough time to have a crush on the boy on the resistance force with her, be jealous because he is with some other girl, is totally immersed in how much more attractive the other warrior woman is when she is drawn into a special force unit to save the universe.

 

So bad.

 

I read an article in the Guardian about a book Tom Hanks wrote. It was a quite critical article with some reflection on why many male authors, directors, writers, journalists cannot portray women with any depth.

Unfortunately there is some truth in that.

Anyone who is in a dire situation, life and death all around, survival is the goal, and she is only concerned with "does he like me" and "she is way prettier than me"?

 

I am out of that.
