Smashwords book reviews by Nicole

  • Stray : Touchstone Part 1 on Jan. 08, 2012
    (no rating)
    It was a nice change reading a SFF adventure without cookie cutter YA roles and relationships. Kudos on the strong, smart, and resourceful heroine Cass. I kind of didn’t like the journal style at the beginning, but it really did become less conspicuous and more engaging as the story progressed. A lot of the book read like an anthropological ethnography of another culture, which was pretty cool, but at times could be a little encumbered with descriptions. I really liked the nerdy references peppered throughout the book (e.g. Stargate, computer games and gaming analogies, etc.). It was an imaginative book; a fun and intriguing sci-fi universe the author created. By the end, I was ready for the next book. I won this eBook through a LibraryThing member giveaway.
