Smashwords book reviews by Erin Searles

  • The Between on Jan. 16, 2012

    The Between is a story of Lydia Hawthorne, a girl who discovers that she is a faerie. Lydia is sought as an asset by both sides in a stalemated war that only she can end. I really enjoyed this one. It has a good story with many threads of plot woven together, though there were a couple I wasn’t sure how they tied off. The ending felt to me like a bit of a downer. The good guys triumphed, but the cost of victory seemed so high. One thing that I found slightly distracting throughout is that one of the characters is called Clive Barrow (and is often referred to by his full name). Every time I saw it I thought of Clyde Barrow, as in Bonnie and Clyde. A connection I’m not sure the author intended. Overall this was the best self-published novel I’ve read so far, and better than some traditionally published novels. It was well written, well paced, and the characters, their decisions and motivations felt very believable.
