|Fanon Review Squad Test Review|
|AVATAR: ENERGY SAGA|
|Story by: Review by:|
Plot – 10; the plot of this story is just magnificent. There is not an idea or event in it that is not interesting or grasping; some events may even overexcite the reader. The fanon retains both its brilliant main idea and its sense of mystery throughout all the chapters, yet combines multiple different styles of writing such as drama, romance, action and others. Overall, this story’s plot is the one of a true fanon classic.
Action – 9.8; perfectly well proportioned action and although not displayed very often in the first two books (something compensated by the overall brilliance of the plot), it plays its part just the right way in the exact moment. The only reason I took a fifth of a point is because sometimes the action may lack slight descriptions, and although it still makes sense and is well written, it could improve. This was mostly in the first few chapters, but since I’m reviewing the entire series, I had to note it. Congratulations to ARG – he does solemnly try to improve on his mistakes!
Writing – 8.0; a very well written story that features multiple technical mistakes, especially in the first book. ARG has been obviously trying to improve, but has still not reached the ideal point; nonetheless, it should be noted that most of his mistakes have been eliminated from the list:
Spelling mistakes, missed or incorrectly used quotation marks, capitalization, select wording, tense; missing commas, unneeded and ineffective word repetitions, pointless periods, dash lacking; dialogue sentence connecting, incorrect use of apostrophe to show plural version of a noun,misused dashes and lack of apostrophes.
Away from that, the story is written with in a very agreeable style.
Creativity – 10; the level of creativity matches the level of the plot, thus I am giving it a ten out of ten. The idea of energybending being expanded to the point where ARG went, yet not making it just a pointless skirmish but an interesting story… this is an achievement. In fact, all of the ideas are so well executed, you cannot but be fascinated. I currently see no window of opportunity for him to improve (as far as creativity goes), seeing that his story is one of such high standard.
Realism – 9.4; as surprising as it is, having such a plot, this story is very realistic; in fact it is perfect in book two and three. The only place ARG had not done so good was in book one, where some of his characters had a few unrealistic reactions, and called each other by “Sir” and “Miss”, something uncommon in Asia except if used in a conversation with a noble, etc. (The conversations with the Fire Lord and other nobles were not counted off for.)
Character Development – 9.7; the character development was amazingly done (just like the rest of the book), yet even though this ties with the realism portion, I still counted off for the few unrealistic character reactions in book one. Away from that, the story’s characters developed in some very interesting ways, yet they still stayed the same character. Very well done, ARG!
Overall, ARG’s Avatar: Energy Saga has a score of 9.405556, which rounds to an average of 9.41!
Would I recommend this story? Yes! No matter if you are an action hyena or a romance lover, you will be caught in the spell of this mixture of multiple genres that resulted in an amazing story. There is no need to wait until Saturdays for The Legend of Korra when there is, one could argue, a better sequel to the beloved Avatar: The Last Airbender.
