Mini DNF Review Rants: Death By Cliche by Bob Defendi | Sunbolt by Intisar Khanani

To Sartre, Hell was other people. To the game designer, Hell is the game.
Damico writes games for a living. When called in to rescue a local roleplaying game demo, Damico is shot in the head by a loony fan.
He awakens in a game. A game full of hackney’s tropes and clichéd plots. A game he was there to save, run by the man who murdered him just moments ago. A game that has just become world-swap fantasy. Damico, to his horror, has become the heart of the cliché.
Set on their quest in a scene that would make Ed Wood blush, Damico discovers a new wrinkle. As a game designer, he is a creative force in this broken place. His presence touches the two-dimensional inhabitants. First a peasant, then a barmaid, then his character’s own father…all come alive.
But the central question remains. Can Damico escape, or is he trapped in this nightmare? Forever.
Wait, what? This is a comedy?
Ignore all that. Death by Cliché is a heartwarming tale of catastrophic brain damage. Share it with someone you love. Or like. Or anyone at all. Buy the book.
Based on a true story.

We asked several respected authors and editors for quotes about the podcast audiobook Death by Cliché. These are some of their replies:
“Where are you taking me, and why can’t I open this door?”
-Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of Blood of the Cosmos.
“I totally didn’t just make up this quote without reading the book.”
-Dan Wells, Author of The Devils Only Friend
“I told Bob I would heartily recommend this book, and he said I could have Mister Whiskers back.”
-Dan Willis, Coauthor of Dragons of the Confederacy

The winding streets and narrow alleys of Karolene hide many secrets, and Hitomi is one of them. Orphaned at a young age, Hitomi has learned to hide her magical aptitude and who her parents really were. Most of all, she must conceal her role in the Shadow League, an underground movement working to undermine the powerful and corrupt Arch Mage Wilhelm Blackflame.

When the League gets word that Blackflame intends to detain—and execute—a leading political family, Hitomi volunteers to help the family escape. But there are more secrets at play than Hitomi’s, and much worse fates than execution. When Hitomi finds herself captured along with her charges, it will take everything she can summon to escape with her life. 


I'm just going to share extremely mini reviews of the both books mentioned above. Both the books are totally different but they had one problem... Confusion. I swear I have never been confused this bad aside from Spinning Starlight by R.C. Lewis. Just 10% in and I was like Haniya why can't you just understand?!?!? I forced myself to finish but just couldn't! Sorry! I don't know what to type more!
Happy Reading! <3
