Smashwords book reviews by Khrystine Kelsey

  • The Eyes that See - A Prelude to the Balancer Chronicles on Aug. 09, 2011

    First of all, let me say this book is very short, and may perhaps be meant as a teaser, which may negate what I am about to say. BUT...I thought it could have been so much better. Adonn's idea isn't all that unique, but could be very fun in a sort of high brow vampire-slayer sort of way. However, he just didn't make me feel it. The characters were undeveloped (see disclaimer) and one character (who Adonn admits is his favorite) is unlikeable. I believe he is supposed to be cocky and charming (just my type) but he doesn't quite let us see the charm. Instead, we simply are to assume he's likeable because Adonn keeps telling us so. I find myself curious to see if the next book might be better, but I won't go out of my way to read it.
  • Murder in the Philosophy Department on Aug. 09, 2011

    This book was well written (I learned a lot of new words!) and highly entertaining, particularly if you have spent time in a college setting. The characters are quite colorful, and there are a few tributes to Agatha Christie. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because the ending, while exciting, seemed quite rushed. It seems possible March was on a deadline and needed to wrap things up quickly, which is so disappointing because the characters were so much fun to spend time with!
  • Dirty Little Angels on Aug. 27, 2011

    This book is good, but disturbing. I wouldn't read it if you were depressed. It is not uplifting. Everything in this book seems dirty and potentially dangerous. This is one of those books I can't deny was good, but I didn't exactly like it.
  • Dancing on the Day of the Kings on Aug. 27, 2011

    This was a pretty good book. I definitely learned some things I didn't know. However, it didn't seem to go very deep and it wasn't fabulously written. I realize its aimed at young readers, but it sort of felt like the writer said, "First this happened. Then this happened." It's definitely a good book and makes a good reference, but its not amazing.
  • The Not-So-Sweet History of Caribbean Sugar on Dec. 10, 2011

    This is an excellent book for older children (8-12 range). It is neither "dumbed down" nor too graphic and is very educational. I have recently read a history of this time period for adults, and I still learned something.
