About Tamara Boyens

I'm a PhD student in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching--I study how people learn other languages. I also have degrees in speech-language pathology, audiology, and applied linguistics. In the past, I worked as a veterinary technician. This is reflected in the Feathered Trilogy books, which are all available on this site. All three were NaNoWriMo novels, (the third of which is in progress at the moment) so I apologize for the lack of editing and proper formatting. I hope you enjoy the stories nonetheless, because I had a great time writing them.

Having read the previous review, it's always a little puzzling to me when the critics with the most scathing reviews don't seem to have published anything of their own on this site. Hmm, that's a conversation for another day. Let's get down to brass tacks with a review of this author's most recent work. I am very impressed with a number of things. Namely, as you can see, this was a NaNoWriMo novel. I myself have attempted NaNo a number of times but have never been successful so I have a special admiration for the work it takes to complete a novel in a month. (By the looks of it, it seems that this author exceeded the goal.)

I found the story itself to be a great end to this trilogy. Having lived in LA and San Diego, I was particularly pleased with the author's ability to capture the energy of these two cities. Because this is a community where authors can share their work in a supportive environment, any minor inconsistencies are inconsequential in my eyes. I'm so taken with this captivating storyline and that's what matters to be as a reader and a writer.

I look forward to reading more from this talented author!

Since it is very easy to be critical I will start by saying I found books 1 & 2 (Feathered and Arched Wings) very readable with an interesting storyline. So much so that I was looking forward to reading Blood Feathers. Unfortunately it does not match up to the other two. I got the feeling that the author had lost interest and was just filling up space. Frequent and long references to books 1&2, until I read this book I never realised how many pages could be devoted to getting someone to have a shower. Lack of attention to basic details, in book 1 Omari is poisened by Carbon Monoxide, in the reference back to this book she was poisened by Carbon Dioxide! Noah and Omari have identical yellow and blue cars. The author can't even be bothered to remember which belongs to whom. At the start it is her Blue Mustang at the end it is her Yellow Mustang.
I find it very strange that as a reader I noticed these details yet the author did not. Of the 157 pages about 40 is the story the rest is just infill. I couldn't wait to get to the end for all the wrong reasons.I did indeed flip past numerous pages.
If you haven't read books 1 & 2 it might a more enjoyable read.
