Smashwords book reviews by Julie Smeltzer

  • Vampire Vacation on July 11, 2011

    A dead body is found on the first page of the story. However, it takes until halfway through the book for any more real plot development. I really enjoyed the second half of the book. The hunt for the killer was really cool and all the different powers the vamps have were creatively used. There's a quote in about the last third of the book that really defines how I feel about the entire first half: "Is something wrong with me? Here I am, in the woods, a killer on the loose, turning an employee from death’s door with semi-immortality, and what do I want to do? Feed from my husband and bring him to completion with my bite." Yea, pretty much. The entire first half is sex, sex, and more sex. Sure, she has a business to run, and part of her business is getting the guests to "enjoy" themselves. But I just found it annoying that there is little plot development in the first half of the book.
  • Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble on July 11, 2011

    This was a cute urban fantasy tale with really likeable characters where the main character finds out she's really a witch and comes into her powers.
  • Oceans of Red Volume One on Nov. 18, 2011

    I liked this story. It is essentially about demon possession and people trying to fight back, but it is a lot more than that also. There is something special about Remy, and it appears there is a third party that can help drive the demons away and save the remaining humans. It was short, only 40 pages, but in that short space the characters and interesting plot have been set up. I just wish this was a full length novel or at least that the next volume was out already. I'm curious to see how this story will unfold.
  • Hansel and Gretel 2 - The Reckoning on May 01, 2012
    (no rating)
    I like stories that take fairy tales we all know and twist them up. This story puts a spin on Hansel and Gretel and whether or not the kids were truly the victims. I wish it was longer though, and maybe had a flashback to a scene that shows what "really happened".
