Vera Lux: #AtoZChallenge

https://www.vera-lux-music.de/m/band/

Who: Vera Lux of Nuremburg, Germany

What: Folk metal. It’s a real thing.

Why: We all need motivation. Vera Lux could be what you need to get psyched up to go to the store or work. I don’t know if they did any music for “Vikings” or “The Last Kingdom” but they could and should.

Check out their links to hear music and buy band merch.

Side note: There’s a librarian in Ohio with the same name. Maybe Vera Lux needs to know Vera Lux or vice versa.

Unleash the Archers: #AtoZChallenge

https://www.facebook.com/UnleashTheArchers/

Who: Unleash the Archers of Canada

Vocals / Brittney Slayes
Drums / Scott Buchanan
Guitar / Grant Truesdell
Guitar / Andrew Kingsley

What: Heavy metal. Some might call their style symphonic metal.

Why: If you had to go into battle with one band, Unleash the Archers would be a great choice. They would be very motivational. Even their name sounds like something Aragorn would say in Lord of the Rings or a commander would say at the Battle of Agincourt.

They are totally worthy of our adoration. Please go listen to their music!

Thundermother : #AtoZChallenge

Who: Thundermother of Sweden

What: Rock and roll.

Why: You might be thunderstruck by the ladies of Thundermother. They are fans of Janis Joplin. I think Janis Joplin would be a fan of Thundermother.

It is my opinion that they will deliver on a solid rock and roll album, which will be out in the fall of 2020. Their music videos are also a good time. Check out their links and videos.

Beneath the Broken Moon: #bookreview

Beneath the Broken Moon by Patrick Todoroff was set in a land similar to Middle Earth after the apocalypse.

The main character is Addas, a half human half ork, who has been living in an ork settlement. I use the term living loosely. He is not treated well by anyone except maybe a goblin named Snat. Somehow he is volunteered to be the tracker for a Dwarf/Ork expedition. Addas has never done any tracking in his life. However, doing this job may lead to something better. He believes that it cannot be worse than his current situation.

He doesn’t know how to read and he hears the voice of his deceased mentor, Chalk.

So the expedition begins and Addas leads them to the next point without many problems. He does begin to piece together that there is more to this trip than anyone tells him.

I did enjoy reading this book, except that the print was so tiny. It was a fluke with my Kindle. Luckily my new glasses came yesterday.

If you enjoy sci-fi or fantasy, then you should give this book a chance.

If you don’t like adventure or books from a different perspective then maybe this isn’t the book for you.
