💉 The Test was a very good novella, actually one of the best I have ever read. I don’t read many novellas because I think the execution is always not as good as in novels. I haven’t read other books by the author but this sure makes me want to. The novella is enjoyable, short, well written and had a message behind it. I think I wanted to know more about the world and that I wouldn’t mind if it was a full length novel.
💉 Raven is my favorite hero from the DC world (I am a Marvel fan to be honest), I remember the excitement I had when I was in middle school and I wanted to go back home to watch Teen Titans!
That’s why I immediately ordered this when I saw it on Edelweiss (Thanks for the publisher for the E-ARC which does not affect my opinions on this).
💉 It is also drawn by Gabriel Picolo who I follow on Twitter and is a fan of!
I feel that rating this is a hard task because it is written by Kami and drawn by Picolo. The art is perfect and I have no objections on it. A solid 4 or even 5 stars for the art.
💉 The story however, was a little bit underwhelming. I feel like I already know this and that Raven deserves more. This was like a story of Raven discovering her powers and origin but Raven was not the Raven I know from the Teen Titans series.
💉 So, in short: The art is amazing as expected but it could have used a better storyline!
💉 I am not a very big fan of sci-fi but I have received a HC copy of this from the publisher. The story is short and entertaining but I guess Sci-fi is just not a genre that I enjoy very much.
💉 It was intriguing to read from the POV of a murderbot and the author has a very successful attempt at making the murderbot so real. I could connect to him more than I did to other humans in other books.
💉 The first 50 pages were my favorite but I kind of lost interest after that. I still get why it is successful and can recommend it to fans of the genre!
💉 Did you read any of those short stories? Did you like them?
What books should I include in my mini review next?
Happy reading all 😀
