Smashwords book reviews by Brea Nicole Bond

  • Hatter on May 01, 2012

    To call "Hatter" a mere twist on the characters and happenings of Lewis Carrol's "Alice" stories is a tragic oversimplification; from page one, this book plays by its own rules. Allusions to the beloved classics abound, but the author's voice is clear and deftly woven throughout this tale of loss, redemption, and madness. Even readers of Gregory Maguire will be delighted by the original and comprehensive world of "Hatter." Coleman takes the fractured fairy tale genre to a new level of sophistication with this endearing story of two brothers, Hatta and Chism, who together are destined to save the kingdom...with some help from a few familiar characters. Both newbies and seasoned fans of Carrollian mythologies will be spellbound by this unique and charming novel!
  • Dark Angel's Ward on May 29, 2012

    Dark Angel's Ward is the rare novel that begs for both prequel and sequel treatment. From the first chapter, the reader is plunged into the midst of an ongoing paranormal conflict. The effect is an exciting immersion into the dark and gorgeous world of Shay's angels and demons, but it's also somewhat dizzying in the early pages of the book (don't worry--all confusion is resolved as the story unfolds!). Strange, as well, is the author's take on the paranormal romance genre; rather than walk the line between fantasy and erotica, Shay vascilates wholly between the two, and the resulting story is much steamier than standard fantasy fare. The supporting characters are a bit two-dimensional, but the protagonist couple have enough chemistry to keep the reader engaged and wanting more. Dark Angel's Ward would make an excellent foundation for a successful series.
  • Gravitate on Aug. 02, 2012

    The author isn't shy about marketing "Gravitate" as "the British Twilight." While fans of the Twilight series certainly won't be disappointed by Duchemin's novel, this description falls short. The similarities don't carry much further than a shared genre and a pining protagonist. Duchemin's heroine Claudia, though also a heartbroken teenager, is the strength of the story. Despite the paranormal forces at work around her, she deals with truly tragic circumstances in a surprisingly believable manner that will strike a resonant chord with readers who have suffered loss. Marty, the male half of the leading couple, is profoundly more vulnerable and accessible than Meyer's Edward--this renders him less enigmatic, but no less attractive. Together, these characters make for a star-crossed duo with enough chemistry to keep the pages turning long past bedtime. "Gravitate" is thoughtfully written, well edited, and thoroughly readable--a rare gem of an indie novel. If you're a Twilight fan--yes, you will like it; if you aren't--don't hesitate. You'll love it, too.
  • Ember on Nov. 01, 2012

    4.5/5 stars...could be a solid 5 if not for frequent and often distracting typos. Aside from requiring a copy editor, "Ember" is an engrossing story with a diverse and colorful ensemble of characters. Only the "bad guys" seem one-sided and overly simplistic, though the author hints at more dimension in the subsequent novels of this series. She also does a fabulous job in slowly revealing details about the fantasy setting and its history--without losing touch with the present problems of the trio of lead characters, who read more like modern-day teenagers than those of typical high fantasy. The effect is a quick-paced, witty, and very entertaining novel. I look forward to following the rest of the series!
