Smashwords book reviews by Katrina @ Kindred Dreamheart
- Paradox - The Angels Are Here (Book 1)
on Feb. 01, 2012
I've should have done my homework first!
I was requested to review this book and give a honest review. I noticed it was only a little over one hundred pages, so I figured this will be a quick and fun read.
Ummm, about fifty pages in, I was so utterly confused. There were beings with mystical powers, Angels(??) I think, humans, previous incarnation flashbacks. All seemingly interesting but not composed systematically. I found myself questioning my motivation to finish this book. I had no idea how all this tied together or where the story was headed.
I'm not into mindless reading for the sake of giving some kind of review; so there was no way I was going to force myself to go through the motions of reading a story I wasn't feeling. Then I decided to read the synopsis. I don't normally read the whole synopsis prior; for fear that it'll contain spoilers. READ THE SYNOPSIS BEFORE READING THIS BOOK. It is seriously a must. The synopsis is the legend for the entire book.
Needless to say, I had an "AHA" moment and decided to start over from the beginning. NOW it makes sense. This completely changed my view on the story. It's actually pretty good concept and over all story. However nothing is straight forward and in the end you're still left with a lot of questions.
- Half Black Soul (The Alexa Montgomery Saga)
on Feb. 22, 2012
Lady Luck struck twice! Thanks again to the good people over at Shut Up & Read on GoodReads for entrusting me to give an honest review.
After reading Blood Warrior, I begged for more romance and more fighting. After reading Half Black Soul, I feel as if I’ve been injected with a syringe containing concentrated lust and death. Seriously I’m having an excitement OVERLOAD here and need to calm down before I pass out.
Everything you could ask for people is IN THIS BOOK:
♥ Steamy moments
♥ Little Nelly growing up and showing her powers off
♥ Kayden, oh Kayden…..be still my heart…boy if you only knew what I want to do to…. *clearing my throat* Pardon me!
♥ Fighting, correction, kicking ass, correction, BRIGHT RED BLOOD making the green grass grow…..HOOAH!
♥ And in the center of it all, Alexa.(One schizophrenic bad azz heroine that I love so much!)
This is my new favorite book. 5 stars is a rip off and does it no justice. EPIC, that’s what it is!
Now this I'll pay BIG BUCKS to see on the big screen! Whenever I’m feeling down, sad, or just plan peeved off, I’ll always have the memory of HALF BLACK SOUL to put a smile on my face.
If you haven’t read this book, you’re delusional. You should be put in a straight jacket and refined to a time out corner, because seriously this read is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
- My Enchanted Life

Thanks to Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Fanatics and R2R for entrusting me with an honest review.
I love it when there’s a running start from page one. This book was a fairytale to its core. Every word was infused with anticipation of something wonderful around the corner. Emma, the main character, kicks off the story receiving an unbelievable birthday gifts, and accepts her good fortune without doubt making you feel excitement and discovery of miraculous journey. That was a great motivating factor. I was able to read this is a few hours. This was like a Disney move in print. Gnomes, fairies, shape shifters, dragons, and demons (oh my!)!!! Even when things turned dark, there was still a light hearted flow to the story, which gives the reader faith. This was an enjoyable read. (3.5 hearts)
