  1. Pent is probably my favorite FB story in some time. I like how we got a small update on Fjorm's situation, as well as him questioning just why this is happening. Why is Askr all of a sudden getting invaded by everyone, and who is really behind it all. It's nice to finally have those questions on the table. Farina's was entertaining.
  2. Eitri just single-handedly made this book a whole lot more interesting.
  3. Dragonflower weapons incoming! Farina and Pent look great. I'll be targeting them.
  4. That may be the greatest April-related thing I've ever seen. 😄
  5. Between Dagr and Legendary Edelgard, Green is looking nice.
  6. I don't think Midori is a problem, given she does know plants very well. Tharja on the other hand....
  7. It's amazing how much more tolerable Tharja is when they actually DON'T have her obsess over Robin. Also, where's Bernadetta? She'd flip over this. 😄
  8. Bleh, Awakening. And worse than that, it's the flirt and the verbal abuser. Easy save I've had in a while.
  9. Fallen Heroes isn't until May. At least, for the last two years, that's how it's been.
  10. I'm not saying Alfonse should have died, but IS making all the books independent is causing more harm than good. It's because of that that they rush every ending and any lingering questions are swept aside. Honestly, the only real interesting thing going on right now is Lif gathering enemies from different books. That is more intriguing than anything else right now.
  11. The sad thing is that the idea of Sharena being somewhat self-conscious is probably the first shred of character we've gotten from her in forever.
  12. If I'm being completely honest, the next few chapters (before the inevitable midpoint trailer) better do something interesting. This might be premature to say given we're at Chapter 5 of a 13-chapter story, but this might be the quickest I've ever gotten bored with a Book. The Jotnar siblings are honestly the first time I actually felt entertained, since at least their interactions with the Askr siblings were a little different compared to most characters, and Nott being an airhead underneath an elegant exterior was at least a nice subversion of the typical older sister trope. But the Nidavellir side of things has been....so boring so far. Fafnir's dialogue is the same complete lunatic kind of dialogue Surtr has and I'm not sure if the inevitable reveal of him being brainwashed will save him. Otr I'm not sure about. He's definitely more important than a lackey, but I'm just hoping there's more than him being a simp. However, if I had to name probably the biggest ball and chain on this book so far, it's Reginn. Again, hopefully this might just be premature, but she is completely boring as a character. Every line out of her mouth is some of the most generic "little sister" dialogue I've ever heard in my life. I feel like even Peony's "Sharena 2.0" dialogue wasn't this bad. At this point, I'm practically praying that something happens to steer her character in to a more interesting direction, because the trailer pretty much spoiling what her story is going to end up being isn't giving me high hopes. Didn't mean for that to be sort of a rant, but I had to get that off my chest. It really feels like, even comparing to previous stories, Book 5 is just progressing super slowly, and it doesn't help that we're already seeing rehashed plot-lines. Seriously, the Summoner gets kidnapped again? We literally just went through this last book.
  13. Welp, I'd say the chapter was in some ways entertaining and completely boring in others. On the plus side, the Jotnar sisters are very entertaining, and I'm pleasantly surprised Nott was not the stereotypical mature older sister type and is instead as nutty as her sister. A nice subversion of expectations. On the minus side, the Summoner is kidnapped.....again. Also, Reginn still isn't winning me over. Really hoping something happens to win me over on her because she's been kind of boring. All her dialogue is just so...generic. Like very typical little sister talk. On another note, I really wonder if Gramr will actually be a weapon in gameplay or if it'll be story only.
  14. So Nott is a lance unit, going by the new trailer.
  15. It's only a matter of when, not if.
  16. My favorite lord has arrived and looking strong as he should be.
  17. I think you may have misread what I said. I never said he wanted to get rid of them. Rather that he was going to teach them a lesson about their arrogance, to which Thorr just praised him for his drive and welcomed him to try.
  18. @Mercakete Honestly, when Lif mentioned their mission, I don't think he was talking about any official mission from Thorr. He blatantly says he will show the gods the error of their arrogance when Thorr recruits him, and she more or less says "I'd like to see you try." Thorr is fascinated by the idea of mortals trying to rage against the gods, which is why I think she's allowing Lif and Thrasir to do as they please.
  19. I can't help but worry though that they may have inadvertently (or perhaps intentionally) spoiled something.
  20. Well, that was quite the sudden shift. We got a new realm and we're already heading there.
  21. I think it really depends on the long-term plans, like if Nidavellir is where we'll even be spending the whole book or if the 2nd half will send us to Dagr's realm as seen at the end of the Book 5 trailer. Granted, they've been a little weird with things so far in Book 5. Like, we already knew Reginn would join us somehow, but the build-up to her joining is....almost non-existent. She only appeared at the beginning and end of Chapter 1, and all of her discontent with invading realms was crammed into the ending.
  22. I'm just glad that hopefully we'll get to learn what their relation to Fafnir, if any, is. Like if they're also working under him or unrelated. I know the book trailers are often dramatizations rather than depicting any plot points, but I do wonder if Reginn getting Nott's sword will actually be a thing.
  23. And now we got our first look into one of the winged ladies.
  24. Nope, not death flags. More along the lines that they go completely against the cheery Sharena-like persona we've seen of her so far and they seem to imply she's hiding something big.
