About Sharon Gerlach

Sharon Gerlach was in training to be a ninja, but a dismaying lack of physical grace and balance—not to mention the inability to keep her big mouth shut—ended her ninja career before it had really begun. Now she writes. She doesn’t write about ninjas because that’s obviously a sore subject. But she writes about other really cool things and figures someone else will cover the ninjas. Life’s really not all about ninjas, anyway. Sharon lives on the dry side of the Pacific Northwest with her husband (who must really be fond of her as he hasn’t left her yet despite her ninja failings); two of her three kids (none of whom possess ninja qualities either); and a Border collie who suffers the presence of seven cats. Yes, you guessed it—ninja cats!

Review by: Carol on June 01, 2013 :
This story of angels has an interesting horror thread and has some unexpected twists and turns. An excellent read for the length.

An interesting story. I mostly enjoyed it, though it felt a little weird at times, like something was off. (Though maybe, given some of the twists, that was intended.) I would have liked getting a bit more character development at the beginning, before the action took off.

As its very late, (and I can't put my finger on exactly what bothered me), I'm going to refrain from setting a star rating. Take advantage of the sale to check it out yourself! :)

This was a great book and I enjoyed it a lot. It's very short, but that's better than being longer than necessary for the story. I hope to see more from this author.

I really enjoyed this story. I would have liked the story to have been longer so I could have found out more about the characters.

Review by: Angi on July 06, 2011 :
I thoroughly enjoyed Malakh and read it through in a single afternoon. Unlike others, I didn't really "feel" the adventure and mystery of the story. For me, it was more a tale of love lost, regret and emotional survival. Like the world fell away when Russ took Suzanne through his own realm, so the murder mystery fell away as Suzanne's story played out. In the end, I wished Suzanne would remember her journey from the depths of pain and loss through to moving on and living again.

Not my first choice of reading as I usually don't read about angels and vampires, etc.. But, I realize that I should and am glad that I took the time to read this novella. A very good story, congratulations for your first venture as an author.

Malakh by Sharon Gerlach is a compelling read.
Her portrayal of Angels reminded me a little of Nalini Singh - and God knows I love her Guild Hunter Series.

There was so much to love about this book. Despite its shortness, you could actually get a feel of the characters and care for them.
Suzanne was a great heroine. I totally sympathized with her overwhelming sorrow over the loss of her angelic lover, because like she says in the book, who could really set eyes on such a creature of immense beauty and fall in love?

The pace was quite good and the adventure part was also satisfying. Although, I have to admit I realized who was the killer halfway through the story, it still made an awesome read.

Review by: Lauralynn Elliott on April 16, 2011 :
I really loved this novella. For the first half of the book, I thought I was going to give it four stars (which is still really good!) but by the time I was into the second half, it was definitely a five star book. Usually with stories about angels, it's kind of hit and miss for me. This novella was a hit. It was creative, well written, and well edited. The author did a great job entertaining me!
