Smashwords book reviews by naughty beta
- The Mating (The original Law of the Lycans story)
on Feb. 05, 2012
I was led to this book based on the reviews of the work of another - completely unrelated - author. Deciding to give Ms Charles work a quick read - just so I could see for myself what all the static was about. - before reviewing the other book.
This was a very good and quick read. While some things seemed very contrived, - don’t want to spoil so I won’t go into detail , but the second shower scene and the perfume bit are but two.
The female protagonist might just as well have had “WELCOME” stamped on her forehead, as she made a much better doormat than Alpha-Female for much of the story. I can understand her weakness and (spinelessness?) at the start, given her status it was expected. But as the story progressed, character development lacked. Elise should have grown into her role more than Ms. Charles allowed.
I have for the last 3 years helped Indie-Authors Beta and Proof their work and I rate this story with the same formula I use for all works presented to me.
The story stood on it’s own. = 1 star
The Author accomplished what she intended by relaying and enjoyable story. =1 star
The story was not unique. - I have found few that are. = no star.
The editing and attention to detail was better than average for a free book. = 1 star.
Personal like or dislike - the story felt contrived at certain junctures and I found my self at first pitying, and later irritated by the Female lead’s lack of back bone. = No star
Nice Job Ms. Charles, I hope this endeavor brings you the enjoyment and success you seek!

Set in a Sci-Fi/Fantasy universe, where a virtual/cyberspace reality is the norm, and human interaction is infrequent, 2094 was an enjoyable read.
This book is a classic Sci-fi tale of sex, loneliness and the human condition that will keep you turning pages
