Smashwords book reviews by Kim Pyrros

  • Asha on July 23, 2012

    This is a fantastic story. I really enjoyed it. I couldn't put it down and read the entire book in one sitting. I look forward to reading more about Asha. I received this book free from the ARR program but would pay to read more from this very gifted story teller, Kevis Hendrickson.
  • The Soul's Mark: FOUND (The Soul's Mark, #1) on Aug. 02, 2012

    I won this ebook in a contest sponsored by the author, Ashley Stroyanoff. I had been following her blog and had really wanted to read this story. I really enjoyed this book, and once I started, I couldn't put it down. This book is not your average vampire story and in fact is less about vampires and witches and more about about the unexplored topic of soul-mates. It is a love story but also a story of overcoming obstacles and finding strength through difficulty and loss. The heroine, Amelia, believes she is nothing. Insecure and lonely, following the violent death of both her patents, she struggles through foster home after foster home. Finally her life takes a turn, she wins a scholarship and begins the life she has always dreamed of. Of course there is a twist and what follows is a nightmare. Amelia finds out too soon that getting what you wish for is not always as perfect as you believe. This is a must read book for anyone who has ever dreamed of finding their soul-mate or believes in true love at any cost.
  • One Blood on Aug. 03, 2012

    I received this book as part of the ARR Program through Goodreads. This book reads like many runaway trains speeding to a terror filled collision at the station. Many characters, their pasts and presents blend into the current day happenings of a small town in the south. Ghosts, Voodoo curses, intense prejudice and hatred boil and seethe into a portrait of intense horror, revenge and death. This small town takes power, greed, corruption and hatred to a supernatural Don't read it alone during a storm.
  • The Weeping Empress on Aug. 07, 2012

    Incredible! This book grabbed me! Free from the ARR Program, I read it because it seemed interesting...I found a great adventure. What would happen if I was snatched out of my life and placed elsewhere? How would I survive? Chiyo wasn't anyone special but somehow she was destined for more. Sadie S. Forsythe is an incredible writer using marvelous language that evokes feeling of deep insight into each character. She tells a story with extraordinary detail and depth. This is a book I wont forget.
  • Eden's Root on Aug. 24, 2012

    This book was given to me as part of the ARR program on Goodreads. A great new dystopian YA with incredible opportunities for sequels and dare I say it? A movie. I would live to see this as a movie. Reminiscent of other "life on the run" books this one adds a twist. The food supply has failed suddenly leaving millions starving. The food that is available will kill you. What emerges is a story of survival and family connections. Definately will read the next instsllment.
  • The Water Thief on Aug. 29, 2012

    I received this book for free through the goodreads ARR program and I must say it is a fantastic book. Intelligent use of references to "Atlas Shrugged" by Ann Raynd make it a possible sequel to the world begun in her novel. The author presents us with a fantastic dystopian world created when government fails and "The Corporation" and capitalism rules the world. Everything has a "price" and people are valued only for what they can provide or produce. Even the body can be used in death to pay debts accumulated in life. BRILLIANT!
