Smashwords book reviews by Blakely Chorpenning

  • Phantom Universe on April 02, 2012

    Kreitzer has created a character that is not only fantastically unique and complex, but also a reminder that human trafficing -an utterly soul splintering underground practice- is not just in history books. It steals lives every day. Summer, the main character in 'Phantom Universe', was beaten into silence when she was four and sold into slavery. Unable to even whisper to herself, Summer eventually discovers that she harbors a strange power (after she becomes the target of a secret society). Up until her sixteenth birthday, she really has no idea that she is different. Or that she deserves the right to be a person at all. At times I found myself aggravated with Summer for not finding her will faster, for not standing up for herself sooner. But Kreitzer is understandably methodical with her character. Summer has grown up with the notion that she is property. And property has only the value the owner gives it. But the moment does come, slowly (as it should), when Summer shyly explores the idea of personal rights. Summer's "relationship" was occasionally frustrating, as well. Though it is all just the first steps in what the sequel promises. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a book with real soul. Note: There are a few explicit scenes involving the beating and mistreatment of small children. However, it all has purpose in the story. And it is pivotal to understanding Summer and the hard won progress she makes.
