The other four books each had their ups and downs, and felt as if they were just there without reason. I am pleased that this story takes into consideration some of the mistakes the previously released books miss. For one, the characters and settings are based around the game itself, rather than just happening to be related only by a name of a town, city, or character in the series. Also, without going over the top, it's grounded within the bounds of the game itself and there are no super-human effects or any parts where I feel that I need to crease my brows and give an 'oh really?' when a character jumps over a mountain.
The story itself is good and gives insight into a brash young girl's hunger for glory and the inability to see how unforgiving reality can be. The focus is targeted at this specific point in her life and the consequences of her actions. Instead of seeing a savior or hero, we see a person as they are and not a period Superman. Decisions, consequences and actions take a good, long look into why the two sides are fighting in a more global way, but still stay focused on the character herself.
All in all I rate this short story five stars because it fits the TERA series as well as being an entertaining read. The only small gripe I have would be the same word (realized, retched) would be used overly frequently in the same sentence. However this is nothing more than a small flea on the back of a large, well-scripted tiger that captures your attention and mauls you with good story telling for 10 minutes. I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent reading and was very satisfied in a dollar well spent. I would like to see more from this author and would be overjoyed if more were her were to be released.
Where to begin? This book made me cry- which is good. It's certainly the first book from the Tera series that's done so.
The plot in of it's self has a pretty expected scenario. Young warrior tries to prove self- ends up mucking things up and begins to regret it. The normal sha-bang. What made me give Fanatic such high marks was how fast the story got me to emotionally connect with the desperation of the main character.
The main character doesn't really need to prove herself- she wants to- and has such drive to do so that it ends up getting her into a mighty fine situation. Even so, she still does her best to own those mistakes; and I as the reader can respect her for that- even if her actions were a bit uncalled for I was still rooting for her to find peace in the end.
The ending has left me a bit conflicted, but that's more than likely just me. So I hand it off to you to be the judge of it all- I loved it.
Really that is pretty good for a short story.

Grim, dark, and delightfully so. This sheds some light on the rest of the world of TERA besides what is shown in the game, and I'm excited that it was so well-written.Published 17 months ago by Max Marler
The ending to this story was a little unexpected and abrupt. It was unfortunate that it is only a short story. Read morePublished on September 22, 2013 by Edwin Barui
