Smashwords book reviews by Kia Zi Shiru

  • One More Suicide on May 16, 2011

    Please not just rewrite but get this through and editor or something. I really wanted to read this book but 9% in I gave up. The countless errors in tense, sentense structure and POV just make it unreadable. Sorry
  • Eating Ice Cream on the Subway on May 16, 2011

    Great short story. Loved how I was really pulled into it for such a short work.
  • Carpe Noctem on May 22, 2011

    I loved the book, well written, good story, sexy chars (I can not count the amount of times I yelled that she should just jump his bones, luckily no-one was at home). It was an intruiging read and I read it in a very short time, probably 2 days or so, only because it was in the middle of the night and I could no longer keep my eyes open ;) If you like sexy vampires and strong (though human-ish) female lead chars, this is totally worth the read!
  • Bonds of Fire on June 11, 2011

    Loved the great story ^^ Did not expect the plot at all. I love the LGBT genre but since I did not sort on genre but just free books I thought this was a regular fantasy story. The surprise was one of happiness though :)
  • Preparation Day on June 27, 2011

    WARNING: BOOK IS VERY RELIGIOUS I didn't read the tags on Smashwords, since the description did not hint it would be this strongly religious. Lori, the main character, finds herself pregnant and when she wants to tell her parents she finds God in a church that is not her own. Suddenly God starts talking to her and she does his will. Everything about her parents and her church is suddenly evil and bad. I read the whole piece even though I felt like stopping often. I would describe the theme as: Girl is evil(falls pregnant), finds God, becomes good girl. Not a theme I like and the description did not show this is the real theme. Apart from this theme thing I found the book to have outdated language, seeing as it is a book about a teen and the language used was probably more common in the 1920s. Also a couple of spelling errors that could have easily been edited out. Overall I give it 3 stars because if you strip the outdated language and skim the very religious writing the story is a decent story about a girl in a bad situation and her choice of life.

    This book had a 5star review and reading the description I thought I would really enjoy the book. Sadly the opposite is true. The story sounds promising but there is only so much you can take before you stop believing in the story. It looked like a romance story but the writing nears more to erotica, but it isn't. Sex scenes are written awkwardly, at one point the head of a dick is called a "perfect mushroom cap" and a nipple is "white of excitement", this turned me off, not on. Suspension of believe only goes so far, when the characters break up and one of them immediately moves in with their ex on the same day it fully stops to be believable. The story ran so fast I could not keep up with what was going on. The narration constantly switches between the two main characters, without a warning, every other sentence could be the other one thinking. It constantly took me out of the story and I could never figure out which character was who because they sounded so alike in voice. I would advice the writer to read some gay erotica by male writers to see how they handle sex language and look at how other writers handle narration.

    Amazing little story. A lot of tension and very real characters. You really believe what you read, amazing!
  • Dreaming of the Wolf (m/m Werewolf Erotica) on April 26, 2012

    The story was sweet and tender and worked out quite well, though I had a few problems with it. The first half of the story really confused me, how could he see his friend and not recognise him? The second things is that there are multiple very obvious spelling errors in the book that could have been fixed with an extra read through. based on that a 3/5
  • Is Love Still Enough? on April 26, 2012

    I found it sweet and sad. The story was well built and well polished.
