" Chaos Awakens by Megg Jensen is a great epic fantasy novel that I very much enjoyed. There are plenty of interesting characters with the main characters being a female orc assassin, a human male priest, and a female orc princess. They form an unusual team as humans and orcs head towards a war at a time they need to team-up against a godly enemy. There are plenty of intimate moments and character development mixed in with action and epic threats to the world. This book is everything that a good fantasy novel should be and reminded..."
" Legends of Muirwood is a very good fantasy series, regretfully the last book in the series, The Scourge of Muirwood is the worst book of the three. The Scourge of Muirwood is a quick read but it wasn't very memorable. Lia travels to another abbey where she finds her captured love, Colvin. Other than them being apart most of the book the series concludes with a surprise yet uninspiring transformation that Lia goes through. I give it three out of five stars and suggest that those that started the series read this final..."
" One of the best compliments I can give for this series, Legends of Muirwood, is that it is one of the few fantasy series I have finished in awhile. This series made me want to come back for more and I wasn't disappointed. Blight of Muirwood is the second book in the series and the main character, Lia, continues to mature and grow in her abilities. She is now the hunter for Muirwood Abbey which faces destruction by the forces of the evil Queen. Lia also has the issue that she is a wretched and..."
" The Well of Ascension is book two in the Mistborn fantasy series by Brandon Sanderson. The story continues about Vin, the young Mistborn girl, who suddenly finds herself and her companions in a very different position of ruling an empire after she killed the godlike ruler. At 815 pages or nearly 30 hours as an audiobook this story tends to be a long one. Basically, the story focuses on Vin as she struggles to find her place and protect her love from assassins while the city is besieged by multiple armies wanting the riches and power..."
" WARNING: If you love the books written by L. Frank Baum do not, I repeat, do NOT watch this show. If you are desperate for a visual feast, great acting, supernatural-ly goodness, and some girl power-- watch it. Hell, if you are just plain longing for Game of Thrones to return, watch it. Now. This might get spoiler-y, so read at your own risk. Welcome to Oz. Here the yellow brick road is made up of addictive poppy pollen, Dorothy is the same impulsive head-strong girl power heroine you love from the movie, and the scarecrow is ridiculously hot...."
" I really don't know how Netflix continues to create such top notch original series and here is another one. If you haven't watched Stranger Things yet you simply have to right now. The story is about a monster and a missing boy (and a teenage girl everyone seems to forget about). This series is set in the 1980s and is so obviously inspired by movies like E.T. and Goonies that IMDB.com even has a page that shows 53 '70s and '80s Movies That Inspired "Stranger Things". While wondering what would happen next and if the kids and town sheriff..."
" I have actually watched all the recorded shows on my TiVo and am happy to say that I stumbled up Aftermath on SyFy. I just started watching the series at the beginning with episode 1 that aired back in September but was still on demand. The episode put it all on the line with several different natural disasters including dead fish landing at the farm after a level five hurricane carried them from the ocean far away. The plot is simple in that a family is just trying to stay alive as they travel in their RV and hope..."
" So let me start by saying that The Great Wall was a fun movie to watch and visually beautiful. The story begins with a group of western men that have traveled far to the east in search of black powder but end up having a run in with a monster. They find The Great Wall and discover it was built to protect from the monsters. I loved the action scenes against the monsters as they attacked the wall but I especially loved the colorful uniforms of the soldiers of the wall and the..."
" Arrival is a good example of the science fiction subgenre of first contact. The plot obviously revolves around the way that different countries react to the first contact with an alien species. Instead of just focusing on the epic impact of the alien arrival this story is much more the personal story of linguist Louise Banks. Spoiler alert: Dr. Banks discovers that the aliens are offering humanity the gift of time travel. You don't learn this until near the end of the movie which then can cause some confusion since there are some scenes at the beginning of the..."
" I finally saw Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on New Year's eve with my family and here is my spoiler free review. This movie got some mixed reviews from my family and friends. My family generally did not like it and even went so far as to call it awful. Yet a friend of mine thought it was awesome. How could people have such a variety of opinions you may ask? Let me try to explain. One of the reasons for the negative reviews is that most of the characters are brand new. The beginning..."
" I recently saw Dr. Strange (yes, I know I am always one of the last to see and review movies) and found it to be a solid and entertaining movie. The origin story of an arrogant yet brilliant neurosurgeon thst loses his ability do perform surgeries after a car accident was well done. It was a nice introduction to the man that becomes the sorcerer supreme Dr. Strange. The action was also well done and visually amazing explaining that the magic was done in a mirror dimension. Like most superhero movies the plot wasn't extremely complex. Beat the minions..."

Dimpra Kaleem is the sum of many parts. Just as all of us have personalities that are a culmination of the varying influences that have shaped our lives, Dimpra is a separation from the original physicality that now resides in a world of fiction and fantasy. It was once suggested that Shakespeare was a collection of people, rather than a single entity - I like this idea, this notion that collective egos can be put aside in order to produce something that can spark the imagination and create a world in which to escape such troubles that form...
