Smashwords book reviews by Marlene Dotterer
- The Far Horizon
on April 18, 2011
This little book just got better and better. It's good, old-fashioned science fiction, the kind that's just perfect for curling up with.
With a ten-year old hero, I guess the book qualifies as YA or middle grade. But it kept my interest all the way through, with good, complex characters, and a story-line busy enough for the adult mind. The space station setting is accurate and rich, portrayed quite well through the story, without pages and pages of exposition to "describe" everything.
There are a few typos in the early chapters, but I didn't notice any later on. Perhaps I just got too much into the story!
- Death By Chenille
on June 13, 2011
Forget the high-heeled-fancy-moves-heroines of normal entertainment. The ladies of Death by Chenille are REAL heroes. Faced with sentient and vicious bolts of fabric, these quilt-shop owners don't hesitate. They set out to save the world with no-nonsense Attitudes and lots of chenille. Hey, don't laugh. There's a reason for the chenille. And once you've read this book, you'll always look twice when you enter a fabric store.
