Smashwords book reviews by Dorothy Darrow

  • The Vampire Hunter's Daughter: Part I on Feb. 07, 2012

    This feels pretty standard for the beginning of a young adult vampire story. The first scene was suspenseful, though I already knew the outcome from the description of the story. The mythology of the vampire hunters (which actually comes from the excerpt for the next part) is cool, but when the two practicing hunters we meet in this part were introduced, I found the characters predictable and I'm pretty sure I know exactly what roles they are to play in the rest of the story. I am curious about Chloe's father and if she will ever get her revenge--or if she'll still want revenge when she finally meets him--but I haven't decided yet whether I'm invested enough to purchase the rest of the parts.
  • The Snow Globes on Feb. 21, 2012

    An absorbing and satisfying read. The writing was a little italics-heavy and the flow stunted in a couple of places, but the story itself is good enough to overcome these issues. Loved it.
  • Love Stories Hate Stories on Feb. 28, 2012

    I want this book for my coffee table.
  • All I Want on March 28, 2012

    Well-written and poignant tale about life's ups and downs during both a simpler and more complicated time.
  • The Faceless Princess on April 12, 2012

    This is a nice tale about beauty being in the eye of the beholder, but it is a written in flat, one-dimensional prose and lacks the layers that would make the lesson--and the story--shine. I suspect this is a first draft of the story. I don't know how else to explain the vast array of typos, such as the main character's name being mispelled, and the jumbled narration. Beautiful cover, though.
  • Safe Now on April 18, 2012

    This piece does well to embrace the real emotions one feels after the death of a loved one--not just sadness, but the complex cocktail of grieving emotions. The final part of the story is touching, but there wasn't much lead up to the message in the last paragraph. I know what the writer was trying to do, and with a little expansion in the rest of the story it could be very powerful.
  • Spiders Know A Thing Or Two on April 25, 2012

    Cute story.
