The Malice,  the sword that could change the fate of the world, is waking and it wants to go into battle. The only problem is that The Vagrant doesn’t want to fight.

But there is another who wants to take up the call to arms, a woman called Vesper, and her part in this story has only just begun.

The author has continued to draw me into his world with this book, creating a characters and places you invest yourself in, wanting to follow them into whatever fate lays before them. All round, a pretty good story.

Blue Planet II

9781849909679

This is a bit of an unusual post for me, because it is not the kind of thing I normally post about. But after watching this show, I can see why it has sparked so much debate.

As you all know; I love animals and, and I love nature, so shows like this are always interesting to me. What has sparked so much debate is that the show has highlighted the impact the human race is having on the planet and the rest of it’s non-human inhabitants. Even if you don’t believe in global warming, or think that fracking is fine, the show undeniably shows just how dangerous humans have become to the planet we call home and the animals we claim to love.

We can’t all have the huge impact on the world that this show has, but we don’t need to. All we have to do is make an impact on our own little place in the world. Every piece of plastic you recycle is one less piece that ends up in the ocean where it harms wildlife, and every piece of paper you recycle will help reduce the amount of trees being chopped down and destroying habbitats.

I hope you guys get to watch the show, or read the book that accompanies it, because it truly is a remarkable piece of television.

I would also like to let you guys know, that even though I am still ill, I am feeling less tired than before so have more energy to stay awake and write my blog posts. Though I am far from better, it means there should be far less interruptions to my posting schedule. Thanks for continuing to follow the blog, it means a lot to me.
