  • Wayward on April 05, 2011

    Great book. Compelling from the front to the back. Among the best first books here at sw.
  • Devious Magic (Book 3, Stella Mayweather Series) on Jan. 19, 2012

    I loved this whole series. I read the series in a few days. I couldn't put it down. I'm giving the series an overall 5. Book 3 is the weakest, but still good. I'll be watching the author for more fun in the future.

  • Blood Warrior on Jan. 19, 2012

    I like this book very much. The main character is very well drawn. Strong and flawed. The secondary characters give her much of her strength and help to define her flaws. The myth is both obvious and complex. The complexity adds uncertainty to maintain a wide range of paths and outcomes. "Trust no one" is key to the story. There must be balance, so there most also be some or one to trust. Both dedicated friends and family could be untrustworthy; either by design or by the requirements of their environment. The opposite of love is not hate, but indifference. Hate and love are the same side of the same coin. So also is support and betrayal; hope and fear. The most obvious of enemies may perform the greatest service the clearest of love may be devastating. "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" is always false, but might still be a useful tool. This is what adds the complexity and paths to the final outcome. I am waiting eagerly the next installment.
  • A Dragon Forsaken on Jan. 19, 2012

    Love this series. The first book, establishing the context is better than the second. Both are good and compelling.
  • Alexander Death (The Paranormals, Book 3) on Jan. 19, 2012

    Wonderful series. I had to wait between books; otherwise I probably would have read the entire series in on sitting. There may be more in the series, but it may also continue. The first and third are the best. The second is quite good.
  • Jenny Pox (The Paranormals, Book 1) on Jan. 19, 2012

    Wonderful series. I had to wait between books; otherwise I probably would have read the entire series in on sitting. There may be more in the series, but it may also continue. The first and third are the best. The second is quite good. I understand the current pricing marketing. A lost leader followed by sold books. I've also bought many books because the cost of any single order is cheaper than two books from Amazon. Still, authors like these deserve better rewards for the quality of their works.

  • Crossroads (Crossroads Academy #1) on Jan. 20, 2012

    Wonderful. I've read it twice already.

    For all that his indexable! Throw all of your tags away and start over. Use "paranormal", "romance", "shapeshifters", "dark", "vampire" and forget everything else. Paranormal usually means fantasy, adventure, suspense and whatnot. "Paranormal" and "Romance" do not need to be every fourth word in your tags. And put "," between your tags. Your taglist is so large, meaningless, redundant and other things I will not print to be completely useless. Google won't take it. It won't help anyone in Smashwords to find it, pretty much it's just annoying. Okay, maybe "interracial" might belong as a tag (or not). But put wolves, hyenas in your extended comment. Oh yes, "story" is so meaningful. Just think of what might happen if someone looks for "paranormal" in the non-fiction section. The only positive note is that you didn't include "Twilight" and "50 Shades of Gray" in your gags (I mean tags).
