I really need to work on my reviews, cause it's yet another late one! Yes, schools been crazy, THG exists, et cetera... but, despite all that, I'm glad to be able to review It All Ends, the final installment in the Spirit Trilogy, by Mageddon725!
Warning: Spoilers for It All Ends below.
The Avatar has always been a force for balance within the world, but, as of late, it seems as if the Spirit World has been encroaching on the human world in ways that could have disastrous implications if left unchecked. Now, Avatar Argho, along with his allies, must face some of the most powerful and ancient spirits that have ever existed, spirits that have been vying for power since time immemorial. Can they face down the darkness, or will the world crumble?
With IAE, Mageddon makes an amazing story, crafting it into a well developed one, at that, and a satisfactory finale for the Spirit Trilogy. Interestingly enough, we get to see a fully realized Avatar in the form of Argho (who is in his mid 30's)! :D So, without further adieu, lets check out those reasons for why Mageddon deserves his (to be determined) score!
Score: 9.4 - IAE works well as a final installment for the Spirit War trilogy, but honestly, as a skim reader, I didn't need a firm foundation in his trilogy to understand this plot (Sorta like how people can understand Brandon's Cosmere books, without actually knowing what a Cosmere book is! xD) I never quite felt bored during this tale.
Score: 9.5 - It all fits! It all flows! My only suggestion would be to have more interaction in between those violent fights of yours. ;)
Score: 8.5 - The only reason this isn't higher is because it is a tad generic; the Avatar after Korra. However, with a nice blend of characters, plot, and suspense, I think you'll do great!
Score: 9.0 - Perfecto grammar (minus my occasional catch, hurhur)! If you've read his previous installments in the Spirit War trilogy, you'll see an improvement in style between each series, and he's reached quite the peak in this tale!
Score: 8.5 - Because Argho is already a fully-realized Avatar, there isn't much left open for him to develop, but I think you've still done your best. Cookie-cutter characters at first, but as you get to know them, you see their '3-dimensional' side. Wonderful.
Score: 9.0 - Right away, action picks up with guns, elements, and DEATH! xD Not only is there action, but the action leaves you wishing for more; Keep going, Mageddon!
Score: 8.9 - I never felt like something happened out of the ordinary; it all seemed to fit, like a puzzle, for example.
Score: 10.0 - In A:TLA, it was easy to say that it's genre was adventure, what with all their flying on Appa's back, etc. This is another 'easy to say' genre, as this fanon catches the core of an adventure tale and caps it in a bottle.
Overall Score: 9.1
Tips for Mageddon765:
You are great at this, man! Three fanons down the line, and this is all I can say: the plot seemed to rush at times, so I think that it could benefit from a slower pace, perhaps, yet keep up intensity levels to balance it out. Anyways, keep writing!
Who should read this?
Action cravers, adventure cravers... story cravers... xD
Well, that was quite fun. Tune in next time for another (half-way) stellar review! -Wings • wall • contribs
