Sam & Samantha

Rated 4.25/5 based on 4 reviews
Banished from Earth by family enemies, 17 year old Samuel Mac's life blossoms when he befriends two exquisite females: a gorgeous blonde Amazon with a large dangerous sword and an astonishingly intelligent four legged apex predator with soft fur and a cuddly tail.

About AJ Asher

A. J. Asher is a pen name chosen specifically for publishing ebooks.

The photo is my youngest giving her impression of a 'cute smile' for a family photo. No one noticed until we had it developed. She is older now - LOL.

The formative years for my wife and I centered around farm life. We met and married in college and then spent time as a married couple in the military prior to returning to college to finish our degrees. After college we were blessed with three healthy children, one boy (the oldest) and two girls. Common interests that drew my wife and I together were mathematics (how we met), music, and a deep love of reading.

Family life experiences have included seeing/enjoying/suffering through numerous dogs (the last died 6 years ago), fish (the salt water type were harder to keep alive - at least in our household), parrots (the last is still with us but has gotten nippy), and gerbils (a small mammal of the order Rodentia once known simply as "desert rats") who, if their cage is placed too close, will eat the drapes (sigh). Who knew?
Other learned family facts include: Waterbeds and small fingers are not a match made in heaven (you can not sleep in a 100 degree waterbed - no matter how tired you are); A child can find a way to use a plastic 'big wheel' and a soft grass lawn to break a perfectly good wrist bone; and, raising tomatoes for bacon and tomato sandwiches (yum) only works if your dogs don't develop a yen for eating the tomatoes.

Life experiences outside of family include: military experience {Hey you in the green hat!}, multiple degrees in mathematics {Axiom of Choice? I have to know that?}, college level instructing {How come we can’t have an open book exam?}, sales {No really. Trust me!}, and work for a U.S. government agency {I think I might be secret service because nobody tells me anything}. Okay, okay I fess, definitely not secret service. Those folks are way too serious. My official government title: peon. My unofficial government title: lowly peon.

I am appreciative of your interest and sincerely hope you enjoy my story telling.

Damn! I absolutely love Tarayla. I really really want to leave a glowing review of Sam & Samantha as well. I see the other reviewers are brimming with positive superlatives - so maybe its just me.
I got lost in the story several times. I never figured out if the rebuilding of the "Elanth" became the "Princess star" or the "Princess Star" emerged from somewhere else. I can't find a rechristening anywhere. A lot of the times people were someplace or other it wasn't clear to me why they were there.
I truly am sorry but this novel just doesn't work for me.
Hopefully the author won't let one less than glowing review discourage him from further writing.
Sad regards

So this is my first review on SW so I guaranty it won't be very helpful. Saying that though, this is the book which compelled me to write an actual review. Anyway, absolutely love the character dynamics within the novel. Even the secondary characters get a good showing. I just hope Mr Asher writes more books in the series. I don't actually know if this is part of a series or whether it's just a standalone novel. So after reading this extremely good novel, I plan to buy Mr Asher's other books. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE turn this book into a longstanding series!!!
