I'm not going to review Natania's book here because this was just a first draft. However, it was a great first draft. I've emailed her personally with my thoughts but this novel has a lot of potential. It's not fantasy or spec fiction like her other books. This is the story of Kate Styx, keyboardist and songwriter for a band called The Revivals. Without going into too much detail, Rock Revival is the story of a band at crossroads. Every member has their own demons (not actual demons... I said this wasn't fantasy) and their own way of dealing with said demons. I told Natania that I found Kate damaged but not broken and certainly not someone so self-pitying that I couldn't empathize with her. She's been through a lot but I liked her. I've never really been a huge music fan. I listen to a lot of music. And I like it. But I don't live for it or through it like some people do. The last time I read a music based book, it didn't go too well.
Anyway, I really liked reading Rock Revival and I really really hope that someday it will be on bookshelves or available as an e-book for everyone to enjoy.
Not sure what I'm reading next. I've gotten sucked into Star Wars: Legacy comics, so I might focus on those for a bit. I've done a bunch of comic reading since the holidays but haven't gotten around to reviewing any of those. I may at some point but right now, I'll finish Legacy and see what I'm in the mood to read next!
