Smashwords book reviews by M. Pars

  • No Place Like Amestraton on Feb. 15, 2013

    This is one of the most boring stories I have ever read. I think many details could have been omitted. The characters are not fully developed and come across as quite stupid, for want of a better word. I read it through hoping it would finally develop into an exciting, entertaining story, but was sorely disappointed. Needs to be reworked.
  • Anaxiunara (One Brief Eternity) on Feb. 28, 2013

    Marvelous! Truly a gifted storyteller. Thank you for the spiritual, philosophical and emotional (not forgetting fantastical) journey. I hope that you write more about Anna and everyone else.
  • The Light & Shadow Trilogy on April 18, 2013

    Wonderful! I lived through the characters - felt their joys, sorrows and victories. This trilogy left me wanting to share more of Catwin and Miriel's lives. I hope you will write about them again.
  • The Unsuspecting Mage: The Morcyth Saga Book One on Aug. 28, 2013

    I have to agree with my fellow reviewers - the book lacks tension and the present tense is very difficult to follow. I think that the use of the present tense takes away any depth, rendering the story flat. I certainly would not pay money to read the remaining volumes.
  • From Across the Clouded Range on Oct. 23, 2013

    Truly epic - I could not put my iPad down. Characters are well-balanced and believable. I cannot wait for the next book. It has been a long time since I have read such a captivating story. Hats off to you! Please keep writing. Talent such as yours must be shared with the world.

    How can anyone review your book if all you allow is Epub? Look at other writers - they offer many options.
  • Double Life on Jan. 26, 2014

    Was this written by a couple of teenagers? Overuse of adjectives - out of context. Too many spelling and grammatical errors. I have read about 1/3 of the story and cannot continue. Maybe this book will appeal to the young adult and teen readers, but it certainly will not help to improve their language skills.
  • Journal of a Living Key - Coven on Feb. 15, 2014

    Needs major editing. I have read up to page 7 and cannot continue due to numerous spelling errors. For example: a skirt is pleated, not pleaded; one eavesdrops, not ease drops. Please rework.
  • The Well of Fates on Feb. 26, 2014

    Fabulous! Another great storyteller is born. I cannot wait for the next book(s). Please hurry!!
  • Illiom, Daughter of Prophecy on April 22, 2014

    A very well-written tale with believable characters. You are a gifted story teller and I cannot wait for the adventure to continue. Well done!
  • Storm of Prophecy, Book I: Dark Awakening on May 06, 2014

    A good attempt. The characters need to be fine tuned and the story needs to flow more smoothly. I felt myself becoming irritated with the utter stupidity of most characters - perhaps the author attempted to portray them as complacent, but they unfortunately did not come across as such.
  • Bound by a Dragon on May 08, 2014

    A sweet romance. The characters are believable and although the story follows the standard "romance" formula, it is very enjoyable and easy to read. I cannot wait to read more about Keira, Aaron and Anna.
  • The Church of the Wood on May 14, 2014

    Truly enchanting! The characters are real and I lived the tale with them. Keep the faery stiries coming.
  • The Orphan and the Shadow Walker: The Awakening on June 25, 2014

    Excellent! I cannot wait for more. Please hurry with the continuation. You are a gifted storyteller - a true bard. Thank you.
  • A Woman Warrior Born on July 01, 2014

    In one word, excellent! I cannot wait for more of Breea. One of the few books that I just cannot put down. Bravo!!
  • Blood Gift Part One on July 07, 2014

    Will you please offer this book in other forms - PDF, read online, etc? That would most certainly assure (perhaps positive) reviews.
  • Tempting Fate on July 13, 2014

    Outstanding! I could not put this book down, and now that I've reached the end, I want more. I do hope that Saira and friends will find their way into my library once (or twice) more. Thank you for spinning a fine tale.
  • Crimson Oath on July 15, 2014

    Try again in a few years. Had I known of the particular sexual angle beforehand, I would not have read the book. Please declare all content and repost your book, especially as some parents might not want their teens to read about these things.
  • Slayer on July 19, 2014

    Groan! I could not get past page 17. Please go back to school and try to pass your English courses - all of them.
  • The Lifestone Chronicles. Foundation of a Kings Legend on Sep. 30, 2014

    A wonderful story. However it is difficult to read because there are too many spelling errors, as well as incorrect word usage. Run it by an editor and it will be in top shape after.
  • The Cult of Sutek: The Epic of Andrasta and Rondel, Vol. 1 on Oct. 01, 2014

    In a word - marvelous. Both the characters and storyline are strong and very convincing. I cannot wait to read more of Andrasta and Rondel and their world. Bravo!
  • The City of Pillars: The Epic of Andrasta and Rondel, Vol. 2 on Oct. 14, 2014

    You've done it again - bravo! Please keep sharing your gift with the world.
  • The Road to Amber on Oct. 18, 2014

    Wow! The story is intriguing, but I had a difficult time with the level of suffering. Characters are well-developed. Overall, a very good tale.
  • Oberon's Children on Oct. 21, 2014

    Magnificent! I could not put this story down. Please wrote a follow-up to this. I think the world needs to know more of Mol and the others. You are truly a gifted writer and should continue to share your talent.
  • The Randolph Family Saga, Book One: The Ballad of Tam Lin on Dec. 05, 2014

    What a beautiful story! I felt drawn into the tale and could not put it down. I have already downloaded books 2 and 3 and cannot wait to read them. You are truly a gifted storyteller and I am grateful that you have shared your gift with the world. Happy Holidays!
  • Thomas Kindercook and the Pink Pyjamas on Jan. 14, 2015

    Love this story - a good mix of adventure, romance, humor and suspense. The characters are well-developed and believable. i enjoyed a few laugh-out-loud momemts. Cannot wait for the rest of the series. Welll done!
  • Out of Mischief: World of Change Book 1 on Jan. 28, 2015

    I really enjoyed the story. The characters are likeable and the story unfolds quite nicely. I have to agree with my fellow reader - a little more emotion would be nice. Overall, it was a good read and I look forward to the next installment(s).
  • Into Trouble: World of Change Book 2 on Jan. 30, 2015

    Bravo! Very well done. Once again, I truly enjoyed the characters and story line. I am looking forward to the future adventures of Aleria.
  • Burnt (Blood and Fire Book 1) on May 06, 2015

    I do not usually read dark fantasy, but this has captured my interest and imagination. The characters are believable and the story line realistic. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.
  • A Rose Amongst the Dragons: Book I on May 18, 2015

    The story has promise, but there are too many spelling and word usage errors - extensive editing needed. Also, the characters are underdeveloped and appear juvenile. Good attempt, but needs more work.
  • Untamed on May 26, 2015

    This can be a very good story if it were not for the numerous spelling and grammatical errors. Have an editor give it a good once-over and I think it would be enjoyable. Good luck.
  • The Seventh Circle - Book I on June 19, 2015

    The story is a bit slow - certainly nowhere close to Tolkien's works. The "heroes" need to work together, not run and hide during times of difficulty or duress. I have read stories that draw you in and keep you wanting more. This is not one.
  • The Seventh Circle - Book II The Rhythm of Nature on June 20, 2015

    Well, I thought that this secon book would be an improvement on the first, but I am sadly disappointed. Grammatical errors, too much repetition, wrong word usage - just to name a few problems. I kept waiting for the story to pick up speed and the characters to develop some backbone but got to the end wondering why I wasted money and time on this. Sorry, but much improvement is needed.
  • The Messenger on June 25, 2015

    Interesting story. I do not read dark fiction/fantasy much, but I must say that this is very well-written and as realistic as one can get. The brutal reality portrayed is a bit unsettling, but that is what separates regular fiction/fantasy from dark, I would guess. Overall, a very good read. Congratulations!
