Smashwords book reviews by Monika Gregor

  • Storyteller on Oct. 30, 2010

    This is a very good and interesting collection of Welsh myth and history. The first 30 or 40 pages I thought drag a bit and sometimes it is almost boring in the beginning, but as the story unfolds it gets more and more interesting!
  • Hunting Elf, a doggone Christmas story on Dec. 22, 2010

    this is a very funny and also sometimes quite touching story! Elf is a great strong-minded puppy, very individual. I sometimes felt sorry and at the same time a bit annoyed with Dan as he cannot stand up to his wife. The dogshow-witches I'm afraid do exist in reality - animal-beauty-shows I always thought of being very horrible. It is a really great read.
  • To Rule This Broken Earth on March 21, 2012

    I received this e-book through the member giveaway. I enjoyed reading it very much. The book changes the feeling of time and space just like the landscape changes and disappears in the story. Sometimes I felt to be in a western, then again in a medieval history, and also in a post-atomic era. The characters are nicely done, very lively. Dave is very believable in his role as reluctant (and unbelieving) leader. Ellen and Larsen both are very interesting female leaders, strong, wishing for the best but knowing that this isn't always possible. And Samuel is a horrible villain. The conflict between Denise and her father is disturbing but believable. The story is sometimes rather gruesome and bloody, but there is also a sly humour which is very enjoyable. It would be great to meet Dave in another book again.

  • Project Moses - An Enzo Lee Mystery Thriller on April 07, 2012

    It was a nice thriller, but not really anything new in it. The main actors are designed nicely and Enzo is cool! I wasn't really taken by the sexual interactions, the way they are written turned me off more than anything - not erotic at all. It also took me rather long to place the time in which the story takes place, in the beginning I was wondering a lot why they always use payphones. I also thought that the story drags somewhat through the first 100 or so pages, it gets a lot more interesting then. All in all a nice read, but not among my favorite thriller authors.
  • Little Red Riding Hood and the Secret Cookie Recipe: A Gabby Grimm Fairy Tale Mystery #3 on May 18, 2013

    this was a really nice thriller, with Gabby being a most interesting woman. I enjoyed reading it and am sure to look for more of Sara Barton's books
