Reviews of A Diamond in My Pocket by Lorena Angell

Travis Siegel reviewed on April 29, 2021

I got this book for free from smashwords. As soon as I finished it, I promptly went and purchased books 2 and 3 in the series, as they were listed in the same series on smashwords. Unfortunately, it turns out there's actually 4 books in the series, so I found the fourth book by accident, so had to make a separate purchase for it, but it's all good now. I've completed the whole series, and would recommend it for nearly anyone. I guess there's those who wouldn't like it, but I can't think of any off hand. I enjoy a good story, and while writing style certainly makes a difference in the telling, I am not usually bothered by little things as other readers seem to be. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire series, and in fact, read all 4 books in just 2 days. It's an excellent series, and while there are parts scattered here and there that could benefit from professional editing, I found those parts to be few and far between, and only 1 that actually caused me to pause and complain to myself for a few minutes before continuing and enjoying the rest of the series to the utmost. I agree with other reviewers that the whole series rocks, and in the fourth book, the flashbacks from Chris' point of view did drag a bit, and I wondered why that portion was necessary, but otherwise, I have have no complaints with the entire series. An excellent read (as I've already stated) and I highly recommend the entire collection to anyone who enjoys a good story.

I enjoyed this book, and it is very appropriate for both teenage and adult audiences. The characters were well-drawn and the actions they performed made sense from their point of view. I look forward to the subsequent books in the series as Ms. Angell more fully spells out the details of the universe in which the stories take place.

Excellent book. The characters are very well defined and their special powers are very believeable. The only part of the book that was a little weak was the section after the plot had finished. That part of the book went on a little long but it surely didn't detract from how good the book was. I will be getting the 2nd book as soon as I finish writing this review.

I loved the fast pace and the style in which the series the written, not to mention the fact that it felt realistically portrayed for a story with such an intriguing plot. The method in which Lorena Angell was able to describe the world of her story and give it such a believable and in depth feel made this one of my favorites. It is true the title doesn't give much credit to the action-filled story that this is, but i like that it zoned in on an simple aspect of the story that is the main reason, really. It gives it a quirky feel that doesn't anything away to the adventure of the story line.

I throughly enjoyed the universe Lorena Angell set up for her characters - the differences in abilities between supernatural groups is interesting and adds a unique depth to the story. The characters had good depth to them, and the internal struggles Calli deals with make the story engaging from beginning to end.
