Smashwords book reviews by Danielle Lumley

  • The Vampires Mistress - Vamp Romance on May 18, 2011

    Unfortunately I would compare this to a poor first draft. It has promise, but there are lots of errors and little if no description in the story. It is almost all dialogue and the characters are under developed. One of the most important things to do in a book is to get the reader interested in the main characters, but it is so impersonal I had no idea who the main characters were supposed to be by page 20, so stopped reading. A lot of important things were glossed over and as a reader that is beyond frustrating (Like how one of them took her virginity while she was unconsious.)
  • A Lesson in Passion on May 23, 2011

    I must say that the beginning did little for me and dragged quite a bit, (needs to be reworked) but the moment she was thrust into another womans body, the story became quite enjoyable. Overall it was well worth reading (reminds me a little of that T.V. series where that man gets thrust into a new person each episode to solve their problems - I can't remember the name) I was a little shocked at the abrupt ending to the story and my first response was "What the hell?" but then I read the start of the next book and realised where the author was going with it. I can't wait to read book two. :)
  • A Lesson in Forgiveness on May 23, 2011

    Compared to the first novel (and its slow start), this one captured my interest from the very beginning. I stayed up all night reading it (and am paying for it with sore eyes this morning!). It was truely a moving story line and I look forward to reading the next in the series.
  • A Lesson in Patience on May 24, 2011

    Very much enjoyed this book. Captured from start to finish.
  • A Lesson in Friendship on May 24, 2011

    Excellent! All the books in this series are quite enthralling. I love the fact that the main character is just so tired and exhausted from it all, as it makes her character that much more believable after all the adventures she has already been through.
  • Slave Empire III - The Shrike on June 03, 2011

    An awesome book! Each book in this series is truely without compare! I loved it! It's a moving story which kept my heart pounding with each scene that unfolded. I struggled not to cry in a few places in book 2 and 3. A beautiful story, I will be sure to read again (and would love to get in print). I especially loved the final battle. I couldn't praise this series enough.
  • Slave Empire - The Crystal Ship on June 03, 2011

    A brilliant story. I love this entire series and will definately try to get it in paper back so I can reread it without the need of a computer. I struggled not to cry in this second book, it was so moving. I can't praise this series enough. Loved it.
  • Slave Empire - Prophecy on June 03, 2011

    An awesome series. It kept me on the edge of my seat with my heart pounding as each scene unwound. Each book in this series just gets better and better (if that is even possible). This author is now definately my favourite!
  • Blood in the Marsh on June 11, 2011

    Wasn't as good as I was expecting (though definately better than some books I have read). I will say however, that the author cirtainly has an imagination when it comes to pain and torture for those murdered within the story (It was enough to make me feel squeamish). I wouldn't say its the best of Romances, but if you like paranormal thrillers then this is the book for you.
  • Soul Bond on July 02, 2011

    I really enjoyed this book and was very disappointed to see book two isn't available yet. Initially I had a little trouble with all the alien words, but it didn't take long for me to sort it all out. Please hurry up and write book two!! I especially can't wait to see what will happen with Raiden in book two (Amber eyes) as her thoughts keep turning to him and clearly more will happen in the future (though they had little time together in this book). I loved the developement of all the characters and the trials they go through. An excellent book!
  • Broken: A YA Paranormal Romance Novel (Volume 1 of the Reflections Books) on June 25, 2012

    An enjoyable read.
  • In Destiny's Arms - Futuristic Romance on July 01, 2012

    An enjoyable read. I particularly liked the evil alien race which comes out of dead bodies looking for a new host.
  • Ascent to the Stars - Futuristic Romance on July 04, 2012

    A good book. The warriors reminded me a little of starwars and the jedi knights, but the author put a unique spin on it. Enjoyable.
  • In Fugitive Arms - Futuristic Romance on July 07, 2012

    Once again another enjoyable book.
  • Prophecy of the Flame: Book One on Oct. 01, 2012

    An enjoyable book. Can't wait till the next one.
  • Ravenous (Book 1 The Ravening Series) on Feb. 04, 2013

    Loved it! A very good read. I believe it is sort of a cross between "Tomorrow when the war began" and "War of the worlds". I liked the gory detail of the blood sucking aliens (not vampires) as they slaughter people, the action, romance and internal conflict of the main character as she fights her personal demons and where her heart lies. Loved how it ended!
  • Griffin's Daughter (Griffin's DaughterTrilogy #1 - Young Adult Edition) on Feb. 11, 2013

    Loved it! Can't wait to read the next.
  • The Syn-En Solution (SciFi Adventure) on Aug. 09, 2013

    I really enjoyed this book. Not for anyone that doesn't really love scifi though, as it was more hardcore than most scifi books I've read. I read it almost in one sitting (went to bed at 1am right before the end of the story and read the rest over breakfast)
  • The Accidental Demon Slayer on Oct. 23, 2013

    I really enjoyed it. Compared to the other books I've been reading, it was a breath of fresh air. Unique. I would have thought the Emerald to be and mean more than what it is though. It may still be what I think it is... who knows. I've only read book one, so I'm clueless, but I know what I would have made the true meaning of the jewel. It would certainly explain why he was so happy at any rate. Overall a light happy read.
