Smashwords book reviews by Lilac Wolf

  • Dirty Little Angels on Feb. 17, 2011

    Fair warning from the author that it is a dark story and yes it really is. Sometimes the writing is a bit stunted, the story jumps around a little and I get confused. But it really was a good story, fully worth my time in reading it.
  • This Will Not Look Good on My Resume on May 28, 2011

    This book really made me laugh when I started it. I mean really laugh. It is a funny, sharp and witty story. However I eventually started getting tired of the heavy feminist angle. Constantly putting down men and also going further and putting down children and women who have them. Still it was full of very funny parts. This book is loaded with jokes and even a good point here and there. I really liked the point when she was working with mental patients. Why do they put mentally disabled with mentally disturbed patients, it's like making "Corky room with Hitler." Mostly I enjoyed it, I think it's a book to be savored slowly, it's always on...always moving...always funny. I think I just got burnt. I'm not done with it yet, but I am not going to delete. I will pick it up when I need a laugh.
  • Backlash: A Novelette on Sep. 02, 2011
    (no rating)
    From Lilac Wolf and Stuff: http://lilacwolfandstuff.blogspot.com/2011/09/backlash-novelette.html This is a super fast sci-fi thriller, containing only 31 pages. I read it in a few hours...it would take less without kids. lol Eugene gets pulled into a black op from the future, forcing him to be a very quick study - he wasn't even supposed to be aware but the constant flashbacks he suffers from prevents the science from working properly. Add to this finding out his daughter is part of a terrorist group, his world is thrown upside down in a matter of minutes. And he must recover from all this and do the job he volunteered for...well his future self volunteered. As I said, very fast read. Great descriptions. I got lost in the tech-heavy description of the time-travel, very physics based. But even though I couldn't understand that part, it doesn't really take away from the story. She does try to explain it deeper, but it was still Greek to me. If you like action packed sci-fi, you'll love this short story. I enjoyed the story, but I think it was too short and too scientific for my tastes. Alas, I can only give this 3 stars. And yes, I would chance other works by this author. She is a very good writer.
  • Galaxy Girls on Sep. 21, 2011

    From: Lilac Wolf and Stuff This book was sweet! It pulled me right in, another paranormal novel but leaning closer to sci-fi than actual witches. The Galaxy girls are really 2 sisters and their daughters. The story mainly revolves around one of the daughters. She is ovulating with a vengeance when they get to earth. Turns out it's a better weapon than a gun. Phyrne uses her pheromones to allure and distract the guys with guns, she then turns it onto an FBI agent who comes on the scene and it gets away from her. They must copulate...SHE must copulate with him. And as she was bred to do, she gets pregnant. 6 years later in the story she has a gorgeous little girl and Hawk has spent the entire time looking for Phyrne, not even considering there might be a child involved. When he finds her, she needs his help to save her family from the FBI and Kergeron males who have come to take them back home. Hawk thought he wanted revenge, but really he wanted more Phyrne and now that he knows he has a daughter he must decide what to do with his life. I really enjoyed this book, it was sexy and fast paced, even though at first I thought it was long with 350 pages. I read this in a couple of nights, and enjoyed it all. The story doesn't ever slow down for a minute, not once in all those pages. And let me say I can enjoy a long story, The Stand by Stephen King is my favorite book of all and it's wordier than the Bible. But sometimes with all the independent e-books coming my way, anything over 250 has good odds to get a little slow in spots. Very pleased with this novel, and I have to add Edie Ramer to my growing list of fabulous authors that are writing stories better than you find on the New York Best Seller List. I really should start a list and call them the "Hidden Gems" - don't steal that, that's mine! (lol)
  • We Interrupt This Date on Oct. 05, 2011

    Goodreads had a different cover, actually pretty bland, a large white house. I like this cover, with the 2 chihuahuas. The dogs are actually very annoying, and are her Mama's babies. Her sister shows up with a Golden-Doodle, completely untrained and full of fleas and matted fur. Poor guy, the sister doesn't take care of him and Susan or "Nic" is not attached to any of the dogs moving through her house. The story starts off with Susan, living alone after her divorce now a year gone by. She hates her job, but after being a stay at home mom for the last 20 years, doesn't have a great skill set to offer in this competitive market. That's one thing I like in this story, maybe it will date it but L.C. Evans didn't sugar coat what our economy is like. In fact, the character realizes that considering her options, the miserable job at the pawn shop is better than some alternatives. Then her friend Victoria shows up and offers her a job running her new Ghost Tours operation. And sweetened the deal saying Susan could live in her Bed & Breakfast and either sell or rent the house that is just too big and expensive for 1 person. Susan wasn't about to gamble and lose the only steady paycheck she has. But her boss finds out and uses it as the excuse he's been looking for to fire her and hire his niece. This part bothered me because she really should have stopped taking his abuse right then. After all, he'd already fired her. Then her sister shows up with a baby, a huge dog and no money. Moves in with Susan. Then Mama falls and sprains her ankle...and moves in with Susan. Then her son comes home for the weekend with a girl-who-is-a-friend from school. The girl is all piercings, purple hair, grunge but proves to Susan that there's a responsible person underneath it all. So when Jack shows up, he is frustrated to discover the same old "drop anything for her family" Nic he used to know. Susan is in tears because she can't figure out what is wrong with Jack until FINALLY she blows. So, will the Ghost Hunting job be a success? Who knows, but you'll see what offers Victoria gives her to keep her interested. Will she smooth things over with Jack? Maybe...you'll have to read and see. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll want to shake sense into Susan. lol

  • Lucifer's Odyssey on Oct. 10, 2011

    When Rex asked me to read this book, the name Lucifer was enough for me. Come on, who doesn't love a great scary Satan novel? So wrong. Rex has done something so unique I'm actually giddy as I write this. He took some spiritual names we are familiar with, characters even and put them in new roles and new places. Lucifer is the crowned prince of Chaos, trapped on Earth. Remember the archangel Michael? He's Lucifer's twin brother. And Jehovah? He's Lucifer's cousin...a rule-breaking scholar who left the Chaos Primal to create Order. And I LOVE that Jehovah, kind of an arrogant tool, is married to Gaea. And yes, she is mother earth to his cool scientific God. There are also Goblins Elves...they don't like to be called Goblins. They live in a 3rd Primal. The Elvin and Chaos primals were created by Archimedes. They can speak with him and also with the primals. Well in theory, in the book only the Chaos one speaks. It's all so intense. There is magic, immortals, and really no holds barred on theories or physical laws. Lucifer has to fight to win back the respect of the elves, to get back his rightful place on the throne, to save his kingdom and the elves. To stop not only Jehovah, but Eranos. And as much as a egotistical and evil as he seems in the beginning, you end up rooting for the demon. And yes, he is a demon, wings and all. So get a copy, it's a fascinating and fun read!
  • Pagan Writers Presents Samhain on Nov. 08, 2011

    Well let me get the bad out the way first. There are some words cut off and the separations between pages isn't always the best. I don't think there was enough time taken for the editing process. That being said, I still loved it. It's a collection of articles, rituals, poems and short stories. I know 3 of the contributors from Facebook. There's our beloved Mrs. B of Confessions of a Soccer Mom who writes out a great article on making your own runes using nothing more than Pumpkin seeds and a marker. I just bought pumpkins on sale yesterday, I think I'll have to try this one. Anyone want a set? Angelique Mroczka of The Balanced Witch and The Pagan Writers Community leads us through a guided meditation appropriate for this season. And Kallan Kennedy of The Secret Life of the American Working Witch who shares with us a Samhain Chant called "Homage to My Ancestors." It's like a collection of blog entries all tied together. There is a lot of writing about ancestors and altars, and an altar for ancestors. There are recipes, family traditions, ancient traditions. And as I mentioned before, poems and stories that feed off all of that. Definitely an entertaining read, and only 109 pages, so it's fast as well. All profit on this book goes into the coin purse of The Pagan Writers Community - which seeks to help, inspire and promote artists of alternative faiths. Considering I can only think of 2 publishers that work with pagan material, this is a needed program.
  • The Gingerbread Man: A Scrumptious Erotic Fairy Tale on Nov. 10, 2011

    LOL - kind of sick and twisted when you think about it. Entertaining though to say the very least. :)
