  • Tessa Battle is my kind of heroine She s a 17 year old punk with superhuman powers who doesn t give a crap what you think Except she s than that She s lonely, though she won t admit it She dresses like a misfit, because it s easier if people believe you want to be seen as an outcast, rather than having them realize you never really had a choice about it She wants to be an idealist, but her ideals keep falling to ashes around her Oh yeah, and she ll straight up kick your ass into next week.The p [...]


  • This was an easy book for me to read, but a difficult one to review.I wanted to like this book than I did The book is ambitious, and I think that s part of the problem In setting up a Scooby gang of protagonists and allies, most of which have ulterior motives, there are a lot of characters to introduce and get to know, a few too many for the short 300 page book Similarly, the rules of the magic in the book don t always make sense Tessa is a Scion, because of her bloodline, but apparently this c [...]



  • Fight Your FictionEverything from the cover to the plotline to the characterization to the damn tagline of this book is just so creative.And I m out of my reading slump Why Because this book totally blew away any and all expectations I had of it.I wasn t actually expecting much Which is probably why I liked as much I did, because I love being surprised by a book.The plotline was very complicated to say the least The land of Story is one completely unlike our Mortal world and the rules and ethics [...]


  • Having never backed a book on Kickstarter, I didn t know what to expect when I backed Storykiller It was kind of an impulse decision reinforced by the amazing number of artists who were creating original art for the book as well as my deep love for anything involving folklore and fairy tales And honestly I wasn t disappointed Storykiller won t be for everyone I think I m a little old for the target audience I m 23, so my suspension of disbelief was occasionally overtaken by my critical grad scho [...]


  • I have been waiting for this book for a very long time I got an early look at the now revised first couple of chapters before Kelly introduced us to The Girl Who Would Be King.And as much as I adore that book, THIS is the one I was waiting for I wanted this I love the idea that books are real There s a reason Jasper Fforde is one of my favorite living authors All the works of fiction that you ve ever read those characters exist Their stories actually happened And in Storykiller, some of those ch [...]


  • Fight Your Fiction In a world filled with adaptations I adore Fables, Once Upon a Time, The Eyre Affair series it can be a bit hard to write another version that doesn t smack of familiarity Thompson does it like gangbusters though and man what a trip.Brand and I need to discuss his semi annoying habit of screeching all his panicked worries though.Thompson, who some of you may remember as the author of the omg fabulous i love this book THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE KING in 2012, comes back with another [...]


  • Full disclosure, I backed this Kickstarter, and I was already disposed to love it on account of how much I adore The Girl Who Would Be King, author Kelly Thompson s first novel seriously, check that one out too I love stories, and fairy tales in particular I really love adapting and changing classic fairy tales in inventive ways and I positively ADORE metafiction about fairy tales Any time characters from a story know they re in a story, or when storybook characters are real and interact with th [...]


  • I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review This is the story of Tessa Battle, The Last Scion She is the link between Fiction characters that exist in the alternate realm of Story and the Mortals Tessa comes into her powers on her 17th birthday as she s starting over again, making friends, meeting enemies This was an astoundingly imaginative book I haven t read anything like it In fact, it gave me the thrill I ve been needing to reignite my writing passion The plot [...]


  • I was a Kickstarter backer I didn t get The Girl Who Be King and received the limited edition illustrated hardcover book with was numbered and signed I really loved all the illustrations especially those of which were scenes from the book Very beautiful.Storykiller is an excellent novel The short description author Kelly Thompson gave for the book It s classic Fiction meets Buffy The Vampire Slayer for a new generation is absolutely correct I also loved the tagline Fight your fiction which has a [...]


  • I got my beautiful, gorgeous copy thru First Reads.The chosen one trope has been done to death yet, every once in a while, someone manages to give it enough of a spin that it remains enjoyable Kelly Thompson created a character that feels real to the reader and steps away from the been there side of the genre by being relatable yet full of the wonders that accompany a girl who interacts with the characters from stories Thompson manages to make classic story characters her own, in a tale that kee [...]


  • I loved Storykiller This book was a kickstarter that I supported Kelly Thompson was also the author of The Girl Who Would Be King, which was also a Kickstarter Storykiller is the story of Tessa Battle She discovers she is a scion, a kind of peace keeper between the fictional world and the real world She has come back to the town she grew up in, named Lore, just in time for her 17th birthday, and the arrival of her basic superhero power package She is suddenly stronger, faster, and has moves that [...]


  • Storykiller is the first book a world builder if you will in an on going series that follows the last of the Scions or Storykillers and her band of friends and frenemies The book owes a lot to Buffy the Vampire Slayer as noted by the author herself , but is a cross between Buffy and the Fables comics or Grimm Once Upon a Time if TV is your prefered vice to comics.I think this sets up a very interesting world and the inherent concept of the stories and Fight your Fiction is a very interesting the [...]


  • I stumbled upon this while on Kickstarter, liked the premise and gave it a shot While the target market is primarily the same as Hunger Games, teenage girlsch like the movies never read the books it appeals across age groups due to it being well written, engaging and covering universal themes with the additional of being loaded with classic characters In a nutshell all the characters from all stories are real and can enter our world The protagonist Tessa Battle is the Last Scion and she can not [...]


  • It should come as no surprise that as I sit here in my Thor t shirt, I m recommending a superhero novel to you Believe it or not, I actually hold these types of things to a high standard and a lot of them fall short Storykiller, however, is not one of them.It s fitting, I guess, that I write this on Joss Whedon s birthday because Thompson clearly counts him as an influence Storykiller reminds me a lot of Buffy To anyone who s read the book, that s probably not the most insightful critique on the [...]


  • I received a copy of this book through a first reads giveaway There were things about this book that I liked but I think that ultimately it just read a little young for me It seemed YA than adult Some YA translates for all ages but this didn t do that for me I was a little confused that the story language tova seemed like a great way to avoid using standard profanity but then there are a few fucking____ s thrown in later for emphasis Just felt inconsistent.The story is interesting and I really [...]


  • If you ve read my graphic novel, Celadore, you ll very much enjoy this book Even though it s really about killing off fictional characters who aren t that fictional after all, it has that family is what you make it message at its heart, because the main characters seem like such a ragtag bunch that don t belong together, but by the end, you couldn t imagine it any other way.It s high action and peril, intercut with Squee Dreamboat moments, because it IS a love story too, after all It s funny, fu [...]


  • A very fun read, Storykiller is sort of Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Fairytales Tessa just turned 17 and finds out that she s the Scion a super powered being who can move between the mortal world and Story a world where all fictional characters live However, the Scion is normally a guy and the fact that she s not is sort of an Apocalyptic thing for the inhabitants of Story The Scion has the power to kill Fictions, eliminating their entire story lines from ever having existed Ultimately, Tessa [...]


  • I was this close to giving the book three stars, but I liked the characters too much As I read the book, I felt a meld between Percy Jackson and Teen Titans.Anyways, I was stoked when I began reading with Tessa Battle getting these superpowers and making friends with Brand and Micah, who seemed like I d be friends with in real life Then the Snow Queen shows up, Tessa ends up fighting Blackbeard, and a lot of other cool stuff happens However, as all the characters develop and Tessa truly owns her [...]


  • This is really a 4.5 star a five star verse, five star characters, 4 star plotting delivery That said, I loved this book I am embarrassed to say that the only reason I didn t pick it up immediately after being blown away by The Girl Who Would Be King is because the first review that popped up on mentioned the fantastic art, and I assumed it was a graphic novel, a format I don t enjoy Though that brings me to what I love most about Kelly Thompson, and why I will eagerly buy anything she puts out [...]


  • From the beginning this story took off like a rocket It s fast paced with interesting characters I loved the concept that all fictional characters are real and live amongst mortals There s the Snow Queen, Robin Hood, Dr Frankenstein, The Big Bad Wolf, King Midas, Aladdin to name a few The heroine, Tessa was born from a fictional character and a mortal she is called the Scion or the Storykiller On her 17th birthday she acquires powers and learns of her true heritage Tessa is the only who can kill [...]


  • Ah maze ing I simply adored this book It was so rich, fast paced, and instantly enthralling If having a kick ass spunky heroine wasn t enough, we re also given a slew of amazing sidekicks and hunky men Each of whom are chalk full of personality, intrigue and backstory The fact that this takes place in a world where every single story ever written exists, leaves one anticipating any twist or turn with each page and Ms.Thompson does not disappoint There are so many possibilities So I hope, wish, b [...]


  • I really enjoyed Ms Thompson s first book, The Girl Who Would be King, but thought, like most first novelists, she could improve I m very glad that she kept going Not that I had anything to complain about with the first, this, her second, is a definite improvement It s hard to pin down, but the characterizations, and narrative, are quite good There s something a bit derivative about the Story idea, but it s done in an innovative way.Overall, I would very much recommend this book My only hope is [...]


  • This book was an absolute joy to read The story follows Tessa, who I found to be a strong heroine, who has just been called to be the Scion, a bridge between the Mortal and Story Worlds I loved the way the storybook characters were adapted and fleshed out, and how the characters in the Mortal World adapt to their circumstances The beginnings of the back story are fascinating, and I can t wait to see how it all continues to unfold in the next book.


  • I was saving my first read of this for the hardback from the kickstarter, but I was having a bad weekend and I really needed it, I m glad I waited Coffee, a cinnamon danish and Storykiller is pretty much my perfect morning In my book, anything you turn to when you feel crap is a keeper, and Storykiller definitely did it for me.I really loved Micah and Robin I m feeling dragony new permanent addition to my vernacular , and I want to get to know Tessa in depth.


  • Another amazing page turner from Kelly Thompson It is SO good I can t wait for the next one She may well be my new favourite author Don t let the YA tag put you off this is a fun frolic, that will please all It just so happens the main characters excluding stories are young.It also feels like it needs a sequel I sure hope so.


  • Storykiller is a very fun and interesting story and the book felt like one of my favorite TV shows Which was one of the reasons why I backed the Kickstarter because the author compare it to Buffy the Vampire Slayer The story is a mix of fantasy with real life situation and Buffy I also have hardcover edition which is very nice with a lot beautiful art.


  • Thompson s take on the world of fiction and the boundaries between it and reality is refreshing and fun Her characters are alive and invigorating The humor is dark and biting I loved every moment of this book and can t wait for from her.


  • I found this story through Kickstarter and I must say it lived up to the hype I really enjoyed the twist to the fable characters I will be patiently waiting for the next book because I am all in
