Turley explores the topics of Parent's Rights to choose their child's health care in the story set in Gilbert Arizona.

Smashwords book reviews by Margaret Larsen

  • The Armor of Light: Book 2 of The Wolfchild Saga on Sep. 22, 2011

    This fantastic novel draws the reader into the world of Rasann, a place of magic full of battles between good and evil. One you start reading you can’t put it down. If you fell in liked with Ember and Kayle in the Sapphire Flute, you will love them in the Armor of Light where all the same characters are back, and new ones have been stirred into the mix. Karen writes with passion and a talent for description that puts the reader inside the mind and skin of the characters she so colorfully details on the page. While reading her stories I get a 3-D panoramic vision as if I were in an IMAX theater. There were heartrending scenes of loss, humorous scenes with uncontrolled new skills, fantastic underwater and cave scenes, mind-boggling shape-shifters, and terrifying evil-doers. Karen writes some very insightful antagonists. This second volume in the Wolfchild Saga give the reader a fuller understanding of where the villains came from and opens a window into their heart. Issues we face in the real world are mirrored and expertly explored in this young adult novel such as self-esteem, class systems, environment, the meaning of love, choosing between right and wrong and taking responsibility for your actions. In my opinion her fantasy writing skill is near that of Anne McCaffrey, Orson Scott Card and Terry Brooks. The series’ new illustrator Deirdra Eden Copple created two beautiful covers. I heartily recommend Karen Hoover’s new book The Armor of Light and look forward to the next book in the Wolfchild series. Karen’s books are a staple in my gift list for nieces and nephews.
  • The Reluctant Bride on Dec. 08, 2011

    Fun, sweet, quick read that had me feeling good all over in no time at all. The cover doesn't fit this delightful story.
  • Mistletoe Magic, A Christmas Regency Short Story on Dec. 08, 2011

    True to Donna's other great regency romances this story fits right in. I love the Evelyn and Colin. Michael was intriguing. A nice way to take a load of a refresh your brain. Margaret
  • The Owen Family Saga Sampler on Dec. 27, 2011

    Marsha Ward writes with such skill the reader is drawn into her stories and becomes one with the narrative. Crying, Laughing, and Ah-Ha moments are the norm. Her vivid Westerns provide great historical fiction, romance, and adventure. Settle yourself for good campfire yarns by curling up with a box of tissues and a warm cup of cocoa. Margaret L. Turley, Administrator Writers Unite to Fight Cancer and author of SAVE THE CHILD
  • Surviving Denmark on a bag of peach rings, and tips for enjoying travel to the oldest kingdom in the world on May 20, 2012

    I compared this book to the guide we used when planning our trip to the Netherlands a few years past. Even though we had cousins there to help guide us around we wanted to make knowledgeable choices and keep within our budget, while using our short amount of time to get the maximum amount of visiting and site seeing done. Tina has laid out a very practical and economical travel book with helpful hints for anyone visiting the European continent - things that aren't found in the usual travel guides. I hope to someday be able to travel to the land of my father's heritage and enjoy Denmark like Tina Scott did, and I will use her book to assist me with making those critical decisions that can make or break your vacation.

  • Supreme Chancellor of Stupidity on June 12, 2012

    In Supreme Chancellor of Stupidity D. Ogden Huff does an excellent job of opening the character's skin and allowing the reader to peruse their heart and mind while rolling around in their emotions.
  • Keeper of the Wolves on May 30, 2013

    Cheree Alsop mastered the mind of a wolf and wrote the most amazing story I've read this year. Once I started I couldn't stop reading,personal needs no longer existed. I turned the last page with tears streaming down my face. Victus' point of view is so refined I felt him change from wolf to man and back again inside my skin. The World of Rala became my home. This is a must read for all romance and fantasy lovers.
  • When Death Loved an Angel on Dec. 13, 2013

    When Death Loved an Angel by Cheree Alsop is a touching paranormal romance that cranks the readers thinking mode into high gear. I'll never look at Death the same again.
  • Galdoni Book Three: Out of Darkness on Feb. 24, 2014

    Out of Darkness, Galdoni Book Three by Cheree Alsop introduced another heroic wounded warrior, and a beautiful maiden who refuses to cower in distress. Alsop weaves in the characters from the first two stories in the series and invites you to join their intimate family. The author is a master at young adult action, sci-fi/fantasy.
  • Galdoni on Feb. 24, 2014

    Cheree Alsop is such a talented author it boggles the mind. She takes a little fantasy, a lot of dystopia, and a touch of romance and brings the reader into new ways to think about the world around them. No one will be disappointed after spending time with Kale.
  • Galdoni Book Two: Into the Fire on Feb. 24, 2014

    When Galdoni Book Two: Into the Fire by Cheree Alsop introduced a new protagonist, I was a little leery. Kale - the hero in Book One stole my heart. But I've read enough books by this author to trust her skills and settled down to enjoy another view of the fantastic Galdoni she created. To my delight she wove in the characters from book one and told a tale that takes a good look at problems within our society such as prejudice, abuse, and greed. The Galdoni series is wonderful for YA, dystopia, fantasy, paranormal, and romance readers as well as anyone else that likes to read a good book.
