Smashwords book reviews by Lisa Ritter

  • Hexult on April 22, 2013

    Hexult is more of a sci-fi novel that takes place in a ice world setting. There are a bunch of islands in this world and some of the islands fighting for superiority. Two 15 year old twin children turn up and create quite a stir by showing people their new "magic" which is really science. I think this would be a good book for younger male readers. The ending of the book left things quite open for more to be written about this world, and questions myself, as a reader, would enjoy finding out the answers to those questions.
  • Magick Marked on April 23, 2013

    Magick Marked is about a world filled with paranormals, who are forced to work together to find the magical kamen, that was stolen. I found the plot quite unique. The characters were also well written and grew with the story. This is not just another "vampire" book. I like reading vamp books but at the same time so many make me roll my eyes as I am reading. This book is not like that at all. It has been some times since I have read a book and actually got goosebumps while reading because it had me so on edge. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.
  • A Song After Dark on May 14, 2013

    This is the first book I have read from Grant Palmquist. It is a horror book. I received a copy of the book in a Librarything give away. I found it a fascinating read. Grant took us on a deep looking inside the heads of teens that are trying to figure out who they are in the world. Often times mass murderers have supposedly had a dark childhood that starts with the hurting of animals, or you hear "I just wanted to see what it felt like" This book hits on those things, it was a disconcerting read, but also made me extremely thoughtful. I agree whole heartedly with a review saying it was a disturbing read, but it opened eyes and that can never be a bad thing.
  • After The Darkness: Episode One on May 16, 2013

    After The Darkness: Episode One is a Sci-fi, futuristic story that is revolving around a new world. There is quite a bit of set up to figuring out this world and you can tell there is more going on that what is described. In this book you meet Nadia, who is captured. She must participate in a "game" that isn't' quite a game when your life hangs in the balance.
  • After The Darkness: Episode Two on May 16, 2013

    After the Darkness: Episode Two We once again join Nadia in her journeys after her capture. We also see the determination of taking charge of her life, as well as finding her sister. Nadia is learning what the phrase, "Never give up" truly means.
  • Demigod Conception on May 18, 2013

    Demigod Conception starts off with a lot of action and brings to light a new world full of unanswered questions. Kyla finds herself thrown into a world and having to figure out who is telling her the truth, and who to trust. Kyla is not one to be told how her life should be, she is looking to free herself on her own terms.
  • The Silver Arrow on July 05, 2013

    Don't let the cover fool you, it looks more like a book for younger people, but I found the story very detailed and it kept the mind working. It was in no way a boring at all. It was very fast paced. As a young boy he has a dream that plagues him, his father then helps him discover what the dream means and what his destiny will be. My only negative comment would be that in some areas added information could be used to make sure the reader knows what is happening.
