  • 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!
  • Hungry For You on Feb. 09, 2011

    How to describe this book? Interesting, quirky, imaginative. Although it's easy to breeze through all the stories (because it's impossible to put down once you've started), you won't forget any of the tales. What more can I really say? Just try reading a sample and you'll understand completely.
  • Assassins of the Steam Age (Aetherium, Book 1 of 7) on March 23, 2011
    (no rating)
    This book happens over the course of days. It literally starts off with a bang and then keeps moving forward with multiple story lines that carry the momentum along and make the book difficult to put down. But it is never exhausting. The action and adventure is perfectly balanced by strong and interesting characters. One of Lewis' strengths are these multidimensional characters that have opinions and motives no matter what side of the conflict they're on. No one is truly good or bad although their actions can be questioned. It's the entire reason I get drawn in and keep coming back to read more and will be back again.
  • 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.
