Smashwords book reviews by TrellAndMaritzia

  • Fatal Boarding on Nov. 03, 2012

    Overall a terrific read. Great value for the price (free). I would heartily recommend it to anyone as it is written now (some editing needed) even if it was priced at $3 or so. With the edits mentioned by sourcejedi in the review below, this book would be on my recommendations list even at $5. Firstly, I am darn cheap so prices tend to reflect that. At the same time, there is a lot of competition for our book dollar these days. Secondly, the grammar/spelling issues detract from the quality of the book, and I think unfairly in that they are easy to fix. Both my wife and I trip over those issues, it pulls us out of the story and we are the kinds of people who read every word. The flow of the book and the characters are just fine, in my opinion. But thanks very much to the author! Writing is hard work, and the value provided here is terrific. And also thanks to sourcejedi's list of fixes. That also takes time, and I do believe it is meant to make the book even better. I caught many of the issues sourcejedi pointed out, yet only got to about half of them and I didn't take the time to list them here. So hats off to the author for the free book, and sourcejedi for the free editing review. Now, on to Deep Crossing!

    This is a terrific book, well written, entertaining, interesting characters and plot. The low price is gravy, but what good gravy it is. Highly recommend this book.

    Just as good as book 1 of the series. Great value for the price (the whole series costs less than most ebooks). I agree with other comments on a bit too much repetition, but not irritating enough to take a star off. I read the entire series one after the other.

    It's more of the same from the first books without being just "more of the same". I like the series, and think it's terrific value especially for the price charged.

    This is the best of the series, darker, faster paced, nice twists. It suffers much more than the others in needing editing though, which does irritate me as I read since I think the author does a great job of taking me into that universe, but then the grammar/spelling issues take me right out. Still a terrific book, but short of perfect. Frankly it's a 5 star book but the editing part would drop it, but I also think 4 stars isn't right. So, it's 4.5 stars from me but since we can't do that and it's been a good day (Xmas eve), and so 5 stars it is. :)
