    Dan Pallotta The way we think about charity is dead wrong Activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend not for what they get done Instead of equating frugality with morality, he asks us to start rewarding charities for their big goals and big accomplishments even if that comes with big expenses.

    1 thought on “The Wrong Way Down

    1. I'll be brutally honest, since I know the author would expect nothing less (he is published by the same company that I am, though we have never met, and he read and reviewed my novel as well). It took me about two or three chapters to get my feet firmly planted in this alternative world. Once I did, I was sold. The best part about this novel is the main character, Popalia. At first, I really didn't like her. She is whiny and stubborn and a bit self righteous. But then I realized that the author [...]

    2. Jake Elliot's fantasy epic begins with a robbery of a holy relic/sceptre at Popalia's (heroine of the story) church. She and her father have high-standing clergy roles and feel responsible for not being able to stop the thieves from killing a dear friend. One of the robbers, Katia, does not escape, but her accomplice, Thorngen, is the one who has their mystical sceptre. Popalia and Wynkkur, an elf/sidekick who also works at the church, set out to take Katia, their new prisoner, to another town f [...]

    3. This review was originally posted on my blog (legionwood.wordpress/2012/)When I received a free PDF of Jake Elliot’s debut novel The Wrong Way Down (published by Damnation Books), I wasn’t really expecting anything different out of the genre. On first glance, The Wrong Way Down doesn’t appear to be anything other than a typical fantasy adventure full of swords, sorcery, elven mages and slippery rogues. However, despite this, I found that The Wrong Way Down actually manages to be an enjoyab [...]

    4. (I traded books with Jake Elliot with the expectation to receive, and give, an honest review.) I haven't read anything remotely FANTASY in a while, but I know Jake, know he's a great writer, so I signed on to get a copy and read this first book of what I understand will end up being an ongoing series.I love a great JOURNEY story. THE WRONG WAY DOWN doesn't disappoint in that aspect. The story starts with introducing the main characters, Popalia and her elf friend, Wynkkur. They go on a mission t [...]

    5. A great read by a new author. Quick paced, great characters, compelling plot. It's always refreshing to have a strong female protagonist, and Popolia doesn't disappoint. I can't wait to read Jake Elliot's next offering!What my stars mean:5 stars this book changed the way I view life. It made me a better thinker/reader/writer/person. It holds a special place in my heart4 stars this book is great I would read it again, it exceeded my expectations and I would recommend it to others.3 stars this is [...]

    6. Jake Elliot's The Wrong Way Down is a story about a priestess on a mission to reclaim a unique artifact that has been stolen from her temple. With the help of an elf who is uncomfortable and unpracticed with magic, Priestess Popalia follows her heart and her god to wherever they might lead.I don't read many fantasy adventure books, but this one held my attention all the way through the end and even prompted me to read the sequel (Crossing Mother's Grave) so that I could find out more. This would [...]

    7. I received The Wrong Way Down free through First Reads. I very much enjoyed The Wrong Way Down. To me, the way the main character matured as the story progressed and the way the elves were portrayed were the highlights of the novel. One of the reasons why I didn't rate The Wrong Way Down 5 stars is because of Jake Elliot's writing style. The way some of the sentences were phrased, took a little getting used to and this slowed the story for me. Overall this is a very enjoyable read and I look fo [...]

    8. Really well written. I was a bit ambivalent to reading it because the writer is my closest friend's cousin and I was sincerely surprised that by the end of the book I couldn't put it down and was begging for more!

    9. I received this book as a First-Reads and now that I’ve finished it, I can honestly say that I am really happy that I was the winner of this book because I found it not only enjoyable throughout the majority of the book, but I enjoyed the humor and character development as well. It was a little slow building up to the main conflict (chasing Katia to get back what was stolen and track down Thorgen), but once they got to the Capitol City, the story just got better and better, and I found it har [...]

    10. I am generally not a frequent reader of fantasy fiction, but The Wrong Way Down is an enjoyable read. The beginning of the novel is a bit reminiscent of The Da Vinci Code in its style of writing. Two thieves break into a remote monastery, kill a priest and steal a sacred artifact. One thief gets away with the artifact, the other thief is caught. Co-protagonists Popalia and Wynkkur set out on a journey to take the thief to the garrison for punishment and to recover the stolen artifact, but their [...]
