    One thought on “The Last Chronomancer”

    1. I had to make a because I HAD to review this book.In my opinion, what makes this book truly magical, is the fact that the protagonist is aro ace. Being aromantic asexual myself, its hard to find good representation in media. Well actually, it's hard to find any representation. Positive representation. Most depict us as heartless and unfeeling. We're robots, aliens, villains (for example, Lord Voldemort), etc. Never human. Never caring. Heartless and cold. That is the way we're seen. Mae isn't l [...]

    2. The Last Chronomancer was an amazing book, and I utterly loved it! I won it in a giveaway, but what originally drew me to it was the fact that the main character is asexual/aromantic. I have seen few mentions of asexuality in modern literature, and a book having a main character who is asexual is such a refreshing thing to finally see. This is also the first book I have seen that mentions romantic alignments. The presence of other characters who are also LGBT in the book is another refreshing th [...]

    3. I read this book as a request from the author and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was able to get my hands on an advanced copy and I couldn't put it down. I rooted for Mae from the beginning, and despite being from different worlds, I could relate to a lot of the struggles he faced. Security and normalcy is all he wanted, he wanted to be safe because he was scared. But his friendship with Jace is a lot stronger, and he puts that above his fears. Through a lot of this book, Mae's actions are because o [...]

    4. I received an ARC, courtesy of the author, in exchange for an honest review.An interesting but often frustrating read.The good: Fascinating characters with loads of personality, including the aro-ace protagonist--I never felt like the orientation of the character was belabored or brought up at an awkward or inopportune moment. Lots of well-paced action, too, which helped moved the story along.The bad: IT'S SO WORDY.Now, I realize I got an uncorrected proof, so I can safely ignore the little thin [...]

    5. I won this book in a giveaway and finally got around to review it. A young boy named Artemis drags his brother along into a cave. Their guardian is killed, his brother abducted. At eleven he leaves his identity behind, flees, is taken in by a nice men and becomes Maestri. He lives among Munfolk that means normal people. But his best friend Jace is not one of the Munfolk. When Jace nears adulthood he has to flee as the humans would surely kill the now able to transform werewolf, despite having ta [...]

    6. Let me start saying the author sent me an e-book copy of her book in exchange of an honest review.As most fantasy books, there’s a chosen one (Mae), there’s a curse, there’s a quest, there are mythical creatures (vampires and werewolves, but also elves and dragons and other monsters) and there’s a great evil power trying to rule over everything and everyone. The characters are unique and complex (ones more than others, but people are just like that). Our main character is an ace aro kid, [...]

    7. I'm honestly really glad that I got the chance to read this book, because I wound up loving it. The characters are really interesting, and I wasn't questioning why they were there because they all served their purposes in great ways. I don't always like main characters, but I was rooting for Mae the whole time. I'm not great at this whole reviewing thing, but I really dig this book, and I'm excited to see what else happens in this series.

    8. I think the biggest movement when Jace turned to wolf and when artimis almost killed him until the last part when He learned the his best friend is still alive. After that part the main plot and story of this book begins up until the last page. I like the ending but I'm hoping to get another switch of the story, if what happens to King Solomon, and his son, as well as the other dragons. It seems that there's should be a sequel of this book to continue on what happened and to get a different endi [...]

    9. I've never reviewed a book before but I've known Reilyn for a while and I promised I would once I finished it. In all honesty, I liked this book more than I thought I was gonna. I'm not much into the high fantasy stories (rather watch the movie), but the characters were all very well developed, and the story was told in a way that I often forgot that I was reading a fantasy. Electricity is something not really found in high fantasy books and that was something she chose to include which I though [...]

    10. Ok so I usually don't write reviews because I suck at this but since Reilyn J. Hardy is an indie author, I feel inclined to because I want to be supportive. I read through the other reviews first and I agree with most of them when it comes to the good and bad but for me, I felt like the wordiness of the writing worked? I mean, Mae undergoes a lot and people aren't always thinking clearly. Their thoughts are everywhere, scattered, sometimes overthinking. Hardy is definitely a wordy writer but I d [...]

    11. We need more diversity in literature.That's not really an opinion anymore -- that's a fact. Especially in terms of YA novels that lean more towards fantasy, when I look for a novel, I crave something different. Hardy's The Last Chronomancer satisfied this. With their colorful new universe and diverse cast of characters, The Last Chronomancer is truly one hell of a read. From the very start you are drawn into Mae's world and are introduced to side characters with their own stories and their own p [...]

    12. Since I wrote a 'review' (if you can even call it that) for The Midnight Strider, I decided to add some thoughts to The Last Chronomancer also. The Last Chronomancer was my first book and I'm not at all ashamed to admit I made mistakes. I fixed what I could, and have decided to leave it alone. There comes a point where you have to accept what you've put out and grow from there. I've reached this. I enjoy this story, and I hope others will too.

    13. 3.5 stars mostly because of the ending.when will introduce half stars and make everyone's lives a little bit easierthe premise was great and i loved the characters!!! but the way they spoke sometimes was annoying. and half the time artemis escaped quite easily/through dumb luck from dangerous traps and beingsalso accurate representation of asexuality (!!!!!) i might just cry
