Smashwords book reviews by musette
- Secondary Targets
on Nov. 11, 2010
While the plot itself is interesting and started off well, I did not feel the story as a whole was executed well enough. Grace learns her father's grave is missing. She then enlists the help of an individual she has a "past" with, and the journey to the truth begins with the help of a few friends.
I though the writing style was enough to keep me interested enough to keep reading but that was about it. Even though there is a strong military aspect in this novel, I felt it was a little under-represented. There was this feeling that only just enough was thrown in to give it that vibe.
The majority of the book was spent with the characters' inner monologues. Not necessarily a bad thing, however the mystery was done as an afterthought. After so much of that, when the big reveal occurred I wasn't surprised. I think there should have been a lot more hinting at that reveal as the story progressed.
Overall, it wasn't as thrilling or suspensful as hoped for.
- The Mating (Law of the Lycans)
on Nov. 15, 2010
I liked this book. It was a pleasant read from start to finish in terms of writing style and plot, with enough mystery to keep me turning pages. I didn't care too much for Elise although I sympathized at times. What I found most surprising was the characterization of the males - nothing was too over the top, though I did find it overall a bit lacking.
*******THE BELOW MAY BE CONSIDERED A SPOILER *********
It was disappointing to learn that these werewolves don't deal with mating quite as seriously as one would imagine. From the way I interpreted the writing it's entirely possible to cheat on a mate or fall out of love with them. Attration between Elise and Ryne, seriously? Definetely different from other stories I've read in the past dealing with "werewolves" or "shifers".
- Inner City
on May 27, 2011
Inner City starts out with Callen in his own seemingly small world that expands enough to make him question everything he knew as truth. From the first page, the author's prose style captured and held my interest while creating a believable fictional world (that could very well be our own one day). This was an enjoyable read although the pacing towards the middle did slow down a bit. It picked back up during the last third of the book in which the suspense, drama, and climax all led to a satisfying ending.
