influence the taste of the reading public Not to the extent of going doing it ala Syjuco, i.e., making the story hard to read so that it will be seen as a cerebral work, but Francisco did it in a local exporter style She made us Originally posted on my blog It s a little weird, writing this post months after having read the book and having given my copy away, but my personal need to chronicle my reading life is compelling me, so here we go Naermyth by Karen Francisco is a take on post apocalyptic YA that combines the tropes of the genre with uniquely Filipino references In this world, the creatures of mythology suddenly emerge and lay waste to most of civilization In the Philippines, these are the creatures parentsOriginally posted on my bl Original post at One More PageI spotted Naermyth by Karen Francisco in Fully Booked by sheer accident I was supposed to get The Giver by Lois Lowry when I felt like ambling over to the Filipiniana section of the store and then I saw the

Rumpelstiltskin Anomaly etc.2 Okay the filipino lore was cool like the Kapre, dwende, aswang, diwata etc.3 She actually writes decent action scenes which reminds me of how Cassandra Clare would write it.4 The ending was really good and unpredictable though the epilogue was just meh.5 I do love the Macky part but I My Book Review as Promise that might Suck because I m watching somethingSo okay I ll

part but I think there s a typo with how Fey should be spelled because in this one it was spell It was an awesome read It was refreshing for me, since the lore used by the author in this urban fantasy was distinctively of Philippine myths I immediately got hooked on the main heroine of the story Aegis or Athena her real name She kind of reminded me of Katniss in Hunger Games She is badass and can kick ass of many many Naermyths She is ruthless as a shepherd, and even lacking emotion sometimes but war does that to people I like many of the characters in this story like her brothers in It was an

I originally gave this book only two stars, but decided the reader of this review, if used to the usual scale of ambition among Filipino novels, might misunderstand me.You see, I m convinced this book is a milestone for Philippine books, earning it a place in the history of Philippine storytelling And when I give it 2 stars, I do so on a scale that has Orson Scott Card and Ursula leGuin at the 5 star mark Kare First of, the premise was really a catch Instead of the usual foreign zombies and vampires, a finally read a book about our local creatures Imagining them in a post apocalyptic Philippines is really a treat, and I found that old hermit to be quite a laugh My problem though, is with the plot twist It was very predictable I was not surprised with it at all And as for the problem in the ending, there s a lot of modern ways to avoid it, which annoyed me too But most was the tone the author us First of, the premise was really a catch Instead of the usual foreign zombies and vampires, a finally read a book about our local creatures Imagining them in a post apocalyptic Philippines is really a trea
