Smashwords book reviews by Kelli McCracken
- Devil's Eye
on Jan. 25, 2011
I'm totally in love with the Mirus series. Kait Nolan has created this amazing world of mythical creatures and races. Devil's Eye ranks up there with other paranormal romance/urban fantasy stories on the best sellers list. I'm officially a fan and cannot wait until the next part of this book is released. Sophie and Mick have so much chemistry, I fell in love with them from the first chapter. This is the second book of Kait's that I have read, and I think they get better with each one. Bravo Kait, you are a wonderful author, and amazing story-teller, and powerful voice in the writing community. You deserve an award for your talent and creativity. I'm looking forward to your other releases and will be watching closely for more wonderful stories from you.
- Journey of Tara
on Feb. 03, 2011
Journey of Tara is a Science Fiction lovers dream. In my opinion, it's a Star Wars meets Star Trek meets Terminator type storyline, which is great because I'm a huge Star Wars and Terminator fan. It always amazes me when an author can create new worlds, species, and languages. Brian Hutchinson was able to do just that with this tale set way into the future.
Our journey begins with Tara Vanderpool, procurer for hire, as she sets off to deliver the object of her latest client's demands. Along the way, she meets up with Dirk Bran, captain of the Marcel, the cargo ship hired to deliver Tara to the plant Terra, better known as Old Earth. Together, they make their way through galaxies, unusual species that hold a grudge with Dirk, and destroyer ships set up to prevent access to the plant Terra, all on their way to meet Tara's sketchy client Boru. Though I could continue with the review, I do not want to give out too many details for those inclined to read this book.
All in all, I found this a great Science Fiction read. It reminded of how much I enjoy this genre and how easy it is to get caught up in the new worlds created by imaginative authors. I must say that Brian did a great job of catching my interest and holding it until the end of the story. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading books in the Sci-Fi genre.
