Smashwords book reviews by Seamus O'Shay
on March 22, 2010
Interesting concept. Obviously the main character or two are based on a certain hero we all know and love, but the way you used the old legend and remade it to fit your own view was excellent. I feel like Simon or Randy on American Idol, "You took an old well-known song and made it your own, dawg".
Good use of character conflict and resolution. The fighting between heroes is always welcome. All this crap about heroes always getting along can be pretty boring. You used it well.
Rampant sex among super-beings...hmmm...I notice all your books seem to be pretty steeped in that view. I guess if someone has a strong power he or she would undoubtedly have strong sexual urges as well. I approve. Where do I get my powers?

Ahh, geez, what can I say about a book that has beautiful babes, sex, action, sex, villains, sex, aliens, sex and some of the best writing this side of the sun? B.A.B.E.S. is a fun-filled romp of sadomasochistic imagery from start to finish, beginning with rape through incest but always ending with the super-heroine ass-up, er, I mean on top, ah, what I meant to say was...oh you read the book and figure it out. It's more than worth the cover price - and what a cover it has. Great artwork to supplement excellent writing. Looking forward to reading the sequel - S.T.U.D.S.

As much as I enjoyed the first book of B.A.B.E.S. I have to say I enjoyed this one just as much. The writing style kept me moving along wondering what was going to happen next. Each of the stories was enjoyable all on its own without depending on the others to explain anything. That's a definite plus among new authors, especially in a series of shorts that seem to be sequential in their telling. If Drake continues to grow in his writing style as he seems to be doing I would say he will soon have a best seller on the NYT list. Do they allow this much graphic sex on the NYT list? They should. This book and all the others I've read so far from this author deserve to be there. Maybe I just like sex. Maybe most books these days don't have enough of it. Drake gives the readers what they want - sex and lots of it, but done well.

I've read through the other reviews here and honestly I don't see what they are raving about. This author has a decent imagination, but the entire story seems to me to be too rushed and lacking in the humour others see in abundance. I liked this story, but I can't give it a glowing review. It was okay, but nothing to write home to mum about.

Interesting concept. Good way of telling a story. I felt like I was right there most of the time. It seemed a little familiar at times, like I was watching Smallville made into a movie, only a hell of a lot better. If that was your intent, you made it real for the first time ever. Smallville is just too flat. I liked the storytelling when Victoria was possessed by the Dark thing. Good progression and handling of the occult. Since this is a series I hope there will be a lot more of these books.

The torture chamber scenes had me riveted to the pages. I like to see stories where the main characters look as though they may not make it through at all. Makes it more suspenseful for me. What a perfectly superb villain in Cyrus.

Kick in the pants right from the start. I like the interaction between Griff and the Djinni. Excellent. Who wouldn't want to have their wildest wishes come true? Jake Drake does a great job in telling what one person (Is this really Jake in disguise?) would wish for. I like how it turned out for him.
This is a five star recommendation. Everyone should read Dark Angel: Fallen.
- The Call Guy
on Nov. 12, 2011
I have to admit I read this author's "Cowboys and Olympians" and wasn't all that impressed. Nevertheless, I read this book, the Call Guy, and loved it. Having been a "call guy" in a customer support service center at one time in my life, I can see how this could happen and wish it had to me.
This author excels at erotica and needs to keep writing it, maybe a bit longer? I like short stories on sex, but I like them a little bit longer than what this story is. Still, it was entertaining and exciting and got me seriously hard.

Fun little book. Not as much sex as I'm used to in these books but still fun and arousing.
- The Book of Chains
on March 23, 2012
This is an amazing book. Even as just history I loved what I read here. History fascinates me and reading about these people and the persecution they went through by the established church was real to me. I've read a lot of church history already and I know this stuff is true.
The differences between this book and the New Testament was worth reading too. I think I like what's in here better.
- Being Mrs. Dracula
on June 23, 2012
I thought this was a great take on the Dracula legend. Not the same run of the mill crap so many put out. This author took the time to think about what she wanted to do with her story and make it original. Had she not ended it the way she had I'd be looking for a sequel. As it is, I'll look for other books by the same author when she writes them.
It had a very professional look to it too, which a lot of indie books don't. This one looked like it was edited and published professionally.

I can always count on Whiskey McNaughton for a fun book. This one was a little shorter than his usual, but it was free and still had plenty of sex and a great story to carry that sex. If you haven't read his stories before, this is a good one to start with.
