  • Bury Me in a Borrowed Suit on Jan. 12, 2011

    There were some editing issues, but not nearly enough to detract from the story. I think this is an amazing piece of work and I really enjoyed reading it. I couldn't put it down. It's filled with great dark humor and truthful observations about people and life. I'll definitely be recommending this to people as well.
  • Haunting Miss Trentwood on Feb. 09, 2011

    I'm not one for historical romances, but I started reading the sample for this one afternoon and couldn't stop. Well written and funny, this was the perfect book to get lost in for an entire day. I loved the interaction of the characters. The humor is applied perfectly, never over the top, it's a perfect icing. Really just a good fun and well written book!
  • Ravenmarked on March 25, 2011

    I'm not a huge fan of fantasy, especially Epic Fantasy, but I honestly enjoyed reading this book. First off, and one of the most important things to me, the writing is superb. It was so easy to fall into and just as good as anything out there I would find on a book store shelf. Second off, the characters are each unique and outstanding. Braedon, as the usurper of the throne, was the first pleasant surprise. Mairead, the proper royal heir, is the second. And third, the world building is fantastic. There are so many elements to delve into with the story. Handily, there is a glossary included in the back of the book (I know it is difficult sometimes to "flip" back to it with most eReaders), but most of the words I managed to figure out as I read and I loved every minute of it. From the religion to the different groups, everything comes together in beautiful and interesting layers. This was an amazing story that I enjoyed immensely. I can't wait for the second book!

    Simply put: this is an amazing story. I don't know what I expected. I've read Davis' Ravenmarked, and I loved it, so I knew I would love this one as well. The two stories, while equal in quality, are completely different. This story almost has a touch of horror. There are things in it that made me gasp and made me pause to think. Even though this was only a novella, there was a lot packed in and nothing was wasted. This is a book I imagine I will end up reading again from time to time.
  • The Last Girl on March 09, 2012

    What I loved most about this novel was the lack of squeamishness when it came to portraying the dark vampire who kidnaps Juliette. There is no compromising-- he's not a good guy hidden in a bad boy shell and he isn't going to be transformed by love. From the moment I started reading, I completely fell into this world. It was a tough book to put down. As the end approached, I even found myself a little frightened about how the story would be resolved. I enjoyed this book greatly, and I'm sure I'll be checking out other stories by this author.
