Bloody Bookaholic's Commandment:

Thou Shall Read Till Thy Eyes Bleed

Thursday 30 August 2012

So I started reading Insignia by S. J. Kincaid...

Insignia (Insignia, #1)

Okay, so in this really awesome book people are able to play out different scenarios. They aren't really real, it's like computer generated scenarios. Anyways, our main guy, Tom, is in this scenerio where he is forced to play Queen Guinevere because he refused to bow down to this other douch bag of a guy and so the douch bag changed his character into the Queen. Tom however is too smart for his own good, and won't just stand by like a good lady, he will instead bring the fight over to him. Observe:
"Wait,' Wyatt called after him. "What's happening?"
Tom wheeled back around and remembered she had a sword resting forgotten in her scabbard. He closed the distance between them and drew it before she seemed to realize what he was doing.
"Look, Wyatt, if you want to be a bookworm Lancelot, that's fine. Just lock the door to the library and maybe slide a table in front of it. I'm stealing your sword if you're not fighting though."
"What are you going to do with it? You said Guinevere can't leave the castle."
"She can't. But Queen Guinevere can lower the drawbridge and order the castle sentries to stand down. Just like this Queen Guinevere did about then minutes ago. Oh, and she can also send a messenger to the Saxon king to let him know Camelot's defenseless."
Wyatt gaped at him. "That sound outside... that's the Saxon army, isn't it?"
"Yuri's right. You really are smart." Tom heard the screams starting, and started for the sound with a bounce in his step.
I am in love with this book. Seriously, it's awesome times awesome. It can be read by both young adult guys and girls, it has fantastic world building, funny and relatable characters, good writing... Basically it has everything it needs in order to become one of my favorites. Let's see how it keeps going, since I am only in page 134 so far.


  1. I just bought this today after seeing it every time I've gone to the book store the last few times. Glad to see you're enjoying it so far!
