Beaubien Time travel has made the Edge of Time a dangerous place To protect the Edge of Time from the disastrous alterations of time travelers the Aeon Legion seeks the greatest soldiers and warriors from the most bloody war torn eras in history Those they deem worthy gain a chance to compete in the toughest training program ever designedTerra Mason a plain eighteen year old girl from the modern United States has an impressive stu. I found out about this author and book through his YouTube channel of bad writing advice which unlike the name suggests is good writing advice Lots of sarcasm and wit making fun of standard tropes in many different genres though typically YA What attracted me most about this book was the synposis and the twist of the third paragaph Typically you ll see the monoamorous couples described with each having their own paragraph but no he s a Nazi he s her enemy and that s hilarious Although the synopsis is a bit misleading as at no point does Hanns ever try proving Nazis were heroes nor was he all that confused about people referring to him as a monster He just a normal Nazi who thought what he was doing was just and that Germany should winPerhaps I inadvertantly led myself to have higher than usual expectations but the book is rathernot good It just feels a bit awkward since I feel the uality of his videos is so high it s a bit of a surprise to see this book written as it isIt starts off in a library with our heroine Terra coming face to face with the Nazi antagonist of the book Hanns The awkward wording kind of threw me off It gets going immediately which was a little jarring but otherwise would ve been okay if it wasn t so telly instead of showyI thought perhaps only this first initial scene would ve been like that which would ve been rather interesting to see play out We get told the action and find out the characters perspectives on it later But no this trend persists the entirety of the book It s 100% telling and not showing That s one of the biggest and most well known trope of bad writing of all I m just shocked that the author had this problemIt s frustrating in general to read a book that tells you everything without showing but it feels all the frustrating coming from someone who gives out writing advice and good advice at thatSo much happens to our main character but we never get any sort of real reaction from her There is a sentence or a couple words here and there but nothing that feels impactful emotional genuine or lastingShe s approached by Silverwind a protector of time with a job offer of monumental proportions guarding time itself And how does she react Barely at all Perhaps a little shocked confused but other than that I have no idea I m not even told thatShe ends up accepting the offer of course and I was curious to see how the author would handle the parents ButI am a bit confused Terra literally tells her parents what she s doing and we never see their reaction They were apparently okay with it and she sends them an update after she leaves on her ventures then later comes home at the end like it s no big deal and her parents are just chill with it I know it s a little detail and YAs are NOTORIOUS for dropping the parents but this was such adrop Just a weird way to go about itThe main character in general is mind boggling ignorant and plain stupid She s always shocked of every new piece of information she hears regardless if it should come at a surprise any It s like she doesn t have the ability to remember things or logically deduce thingsTerra Blinked A thousand years You re that oldVita sighed Why do they always find that surprisingTerra knew the Saturnians were older than they appeared but she had no idea they were that oldYou were literally told that those people were immortal and you re just as shocked every time you hear someone s ageTerra just looked confusedTerra raised an eyebrow I m confusedLiterally one sentence in between separates thatMost of the descriptions in this book stem from the environment or the appearances of people As an example the character Lycus We re introduced with him mostly being in shadow glaring eyes and when he smiles that wolf like grin as we re reminded every time he smiles which is often it creeps Terra out But why Just what was it that made him so immediately scary to her We re told she s afraid of him and that she tries her best to avoid him but we re never told why What is her thought process behind her fear What aspects of him what sort of presence does he give off that s so frightening We re constantly told he s scary and intimidating without actually seeing him do anything scary or intimdating view spoilerAt least not until a bit later but that doesn t excuse the nagging reminders of it earlier with nothing to back them up or explain them I did enjoy the concept of his three faces though each with their own name and personality but it bothered me to have so many characters mis naming him while he was in his Lycus face form

Beaubien Bborn streak Her persistence and bravery gains the notice and sponsorship of one of the Aeon Legion's greatest heroines Now Terra must turn that stubbornness into determination if she is to contend with history's finest soldiers and somehow pass the Aeon Legion's final test the mysterious Labyrinth She will not uit Terra will prove that even someone as average as her can still be a heroineHanns Speer is polite good nature. This book was written by the Terrible Writing Advice guy on Youtube After reading this book I can say that he followed his own advice up to the part where the plot is neededI ll give you a brief blurb Terra attacks time travelling Nazis and becomes a famous time knight s suire Then uh Terra goes to school and there are Nazis What are the stakes Terra doesn t become a soldier and a Nazi might discover his country s horrid crimes which honestly sounds awesome by the way ALTHOUGH I did enjoy the school The pacing was brisk and the shit happening was interesting and they had the best fucking teacher and I love himSo what are we left with The world and the characters And to be honest those were well done Sure the description of Saturn city was lacking and I understood nothing of its geography but the technology history and wars the Legion s numerous enemies did build a pretty complete image BUT where this book really shines is with its characters I can honest to God say that you have never seen and won t be seeing these characters again Soon anyway It doesn t mean that they re great or three dimensional characters by any means but they are uniue enough for it to be notedMC Terra Mason is a bored girl who wants a goal worthy of her attention She s enduring blunt and down to earth but not enough to think that heroes can t exist and that doing the right thing doesn t matter She ll help people in need but leave them if they can handle themselvesRoland is the love interest I think when you have it that you can t tell if a love interest is in the room it deserves a comment like this is god level writing He s a knight who lies and cheats but he has real skills and talent Hikari is a martial artist who wants a sword and by god she s going to get it even if it means fighting the whole schoolThere are but you get the idea These guys all have their own little uirks attitude and way of speaking that makes them all stand out and I love it Like Terra clicked with me than any other heroine since Angelfall in an actual oh this is totally me way not oh this is a blank sheet way Seriously my personality is like 75% Terra except that I m actually smart and funny and single guys hit me upYeaaaahh this is Maberan s reviews of course there s negatives duh Just like this book has pretty uniue positives it has pretty uniue negativesOK so Terra kept saying what the reader should ve understanding from her actions and words I don t know if that has a name but an example is Terra always getting back up No matter how many times people berate her or kick her she s always getting back on her feet That s actually something I love in MCs and I was glad to finally see a female protagonist like thatBut then there s literally a scene where a character is like I guess being good at this is your talent uh and Terra deadass turns to the camera and says no my only talent is never knowing when to give up Like we can t tell LIKE DUDE You re the TWA guy You should know you don t just SAY what you want the readers to think about a character You let the character be themselves and have the readers understand them through their actions and words as you did with Terra until this fucking scene There s also the same thing with Terra being like a rock which is actually shown from the start and then suddenly you get this horrible chapter in the middle of the story about her backstory and it Gave Me Vietnam flashbacks I DID NOT NEED TO SEE THATEdit I saw a review where the reader said it was very weird how emotionless Terra was and that he enjoyed this chapter for the backstory and it s weird because that s literally what happened in my childhood Terra suppressed her emotions just like I did because people were picking on her for being different and the adults did nothing Reading that chapter was just painful because I saw all my old caretakers and it made me see red This kind of thing really puts characters and writing into perspective doesn t itAlso there were these subversion of expectations that I could see ten miles from here and it s really weird because it s like these random little moments during training Like Terra fails a test or something maybe gets called out by a teacher or Roland comes by to berate her then comes his turn and Terra s like oh finally Roland will be getting some and then gasp he succeedsLike I m very confused as to how obvious these all managed to be Because this isn t hard But they all failed And I am left bemusedAnd then there s the whole Nazi thing So Terra mets this Hanns guy from 1940 and he s all we are ze best and she s like dude nazis are the worst thing ever and they meet uite a few times and I thought it was this really cool red thread with how enemies perceive each other and the difference between a hero and a villain and when you can tell which one you re which Like Terra grows each time she meets Hanns and that relationship she has with him fits with the goal that pushed to join the legion and the doubts the Captain raised in her about the Aeon Legion being no better than any other armyBut then it just putters out Like instead of showing him the things the Nazis have done will do or give him dates and try to understand his point of view she s just dude hitler is evil you are disgusting how can you not see that and he obviously shrugs her accusations off as propagandaLike I could do a better job than that She just insults him and expects that to change his mindflashback to a video by JdGtalking about a live action show of the ninja turtles with a 5th turtle with the power to turn people good with one call outJdG Bc I mean you don t need the turtles You save the world with that power5th turtle figurine You re evil It s not good to be evilHitlerKen doll Oh my Shneider I see it now diesend flashbackLol But erm let s get back to the book So yeah at first I though that Terra would make a parallel between her and Hanns and the Captain and the Aeon Legion but nope She just keeps on being thick headed and refuses to see Hanns side to try and connect with him and open him up to her own side of things Like you do know that a big part of the German population didn t know about the atrocities they committed right Would you hate them too Hanns is no better than that and you could make him see what s about to happen and at least try to make him stop trying to time travel but nopeIs it because he s a Nazi I don t think so because the author does portray him in a better light than the SS or other members of the party I think it s because that s going to happen in the seuel is there one lol I don t know I just want logicAnd I mean Terra is also pretty uh what s the word like a dude says he s Muslim and she s immediately like I m not wearing a burua bro and he s like wat and she s like omg you re Muslim and you actually respect women LIKE DUDE WOW I thought I was little bit too hateful of the good old Allahu Akbar but that s just made me feel a lot better about myself geez And there s all this bullshit with Roland just like waiting and observing people fail a test so he can learn from their mistakes and somehow that makes him the worst person ever Oh and there s also a part where she s told that her friends went ahead of her because if they hadn t they would ve been dead and she also sees that as a major betrayal like dude they were firing rockets at them geezAnd there s also this test they go through where they view spoilerget captured and tortured by their own people and it s treated as this big how could you but THERE S LITERALLY NO DESCRIPTION OF IT It s just they tortured them and Terra being mad Like I hadn t even registered until I read another review that this would ve totally affected them but it had so little impact on anything that I just didn t get it hide spoiler
