Terra Harmony’s tag cloud
Smashwords book reviews by Terra Harmony
- Hunting The Five
on Dec. 02, 2011
De La Roca is not exactly a demon, but she’s not exactly human either. She needs five kills before she is released from Hell, but her boss, her victims and sometimes her friends all have different agendas.
This short story is full of action, with just the right pacing as to not be too overbearing but definitely keeps you interested. The way this author, Violante, describes new worlds and planes is brilliant. This is not an easy thing to do but she did it well, using just enough descriptors to give us an idea but leaving some things open to the imagination. My only complaint might be that there were many questions left unanswered - but that leaves all the more to look forward to the next story in the series!
- Honor In Hell
on Aug. 28, 2012
'Honor in Hell' picks right up where 'Hunting the Five' left off. It had been a while since I read the first volume, but Violante does a good job of giving you the back story without letting the reader get bogged down in it. De La Roca is out for revenge, and what better place to find it than in Hell? The mercenary has not planned for what happens next, and soon discovers her enemies may in fact be her only allies. "Honor in Hell' lead me to new worlds, effectively using all five senses to put me right there in the action, with Bluot at my side. :) There are just a few, very minor mistakes – enough to jump right over if you aren't looking for them. I do have to say there are definitely more adverbs than I like seeing in my reading, and long sentences during the action slows it down somewhat.
Regarding the plot, you follow several different characters from the beginning on, but Violante is good at smooth transitions, making each arc easy to follow. About three-quarters of the way through the book, the characters start to come together, and several twists keep you turning the pages right up until the end. The last parts were by far worth the read, can't wait to see what's next by Violante!
