Smashwords book reviews by yalle ondarza

  • Star Bright on July 21, 2012

    I am amazed how good this story is. This story had everything that a good book needs. I was in the edge of my seat the entire time. Maria struggles were insane and my emotions were in a roller coaster as I read this book. If you like a good suspense/romance/girl power book, you will love this one. I highly recommend this book.
  • Day Soldiers on July 21, 2012

    I absolutely loved this story. The book had me hooked from the very first page. I liked how he explained the historical events let to the present ones without being boring. The characters were very easy to identify with and were full of live. Loved the action sequences. Even if you do not like werewolfs and vampires, you can still enjoy this book purely because of the storyline and all the twists and turns.
  • Brunswick on July 21, 2012

    This was a good adventure story. The book is about a boy named Jonathan Brunswick, who finds himself being transported to this other world. At first he is not happy about it and then decides to help the people of that world, which he finds out, that he created. I liked the story line itself. The only reason why I did not give this book more stars was because I could not convince myself that Jonathan was 15 years old. He seems much younger, judging by the way he acted in many parts of the story. Over all it is a good book.
  • The Tomb on Aug. 03, 2012

    Rachael is an 18 year old girl that wants to become an archeologist, with the help of her father she gets to go to work on a dig site in a desert island in Australia. Little does she know that this archeological dig will be anything but ordinary. I enjoy the story quite a bit; Rachael was a great character to follow. I believe the only problem I have was all the confusion with the romance aspect of the story; however as the story developed I understood why the author did that. I will be interesting to see how the author follows with the next book.
  • Freewill on Aug. 26, 2012

    This book is about Ellie a girl that died during WWII, who has this power that involves emotions. It is hard to give a summary to this story without giving too much away. The story has a great dynamic and keeps you entrained throughout the whole book. The only reason that I did not give 5 starts was the way the author used different points of view to illustrate different things that were happening in the story. My problem does not involve the fact that it changes points of view, I understand the reasoning behind it, the problem is the transition in which it occurs. It created a bit of confusion, where I had to go back to be sure of what just happened. Also the time line in the beginning of the book was a little confusing. But once you get 1/3 of the way into the book everything falls in place and the story takes its real shape. Over the entire book is a great introduction to the trilogy.
  • Consequences on Aug. 26, 2012

    Consequence starts a year after the end of Freewill and you find yourself lost and wanting to know how things got to where they are. That is just momentarily since the author incorporates the story of the missing year into the present story very effectively. One can see right way that there is a build up to something big that will happen and as you think you can predict what will happen next, the author throws you a curve ball. This book is without a doubt a page turner.
  • Vindication on Aug. 26, 2012

    Vindication is the last of the Freewill trilogy. All I can say is that I was surprise to how fast things develop in this book and the bittersweet ending. I found myself having a hard time not crying in a few parts of this book. I also loved the use of folklore and mythology that the author uses in all three books. She was able to use them in the story without destroying their integrity. I highly recommend this book.
  • The Moon Dwellers on Dec. 07, 2012

    This is a great book full of action and adventure. Even though it does have a romantic aspect to it, it is not over done, causing the story not to be appealing to male readers. If you liked “Hunger Games,” you will like this book. I loved the fact that Adele is not some defenseless main girl, just waiting to be rescued. She is fierce and capable of anything. The characters are believable and easy to identify with, due to the fact that they share many fears that would be with us in a distressful situation. The story is very addictive and makes you want to read all three books back to back, which is just what I am going to do.
  • Guardians Of The Akasha on Feb. 07, 2013

    This book is an enjoyable book with a catchy story line. The story was creative and different from a lot of books out there. The characters were well developed and had individualism. I think the only problem I had with the book is that it did not made me addicted to it. But that may be different for everyone else. I n the end it is a book worth reading.
