Cecily Wolfe's tag cloud

Smashwords book reviews by Cecily Wolfe

  • Heartshire High on Aug. 19, 2017

    If you're looking for intense high school drama, this dark but ultimately hopeful story is exactly what you need. Celia is beginning her senior year in a new town at a new school after her emotionally distant father, who focuses more on his annoying girlfriend than Celia, leaves her mentally unstable mother and takes Celia with him by court order. Celia is immediately drawn to a mysterious girl and activity in the forest that proves to be deadly. Dark and dramatic, her story is an emotional ride that leads her to understand more about herself in the midst of tears and loss that seems unbearable. Celia is a painter, and the author does a beautiful job of capturing her world view, as Celia sees every detail around her, both in landscape and in people, and uses that not only in her art, but to build a greater understanding of life and the strength she has inside her.
  • The Battle of Chibi on Nov. 22, 2017

    This seems overwhelming at first - but is definitely worth sticking with it for the treasure inside. This story is a blend of genres that speaks across culture and time, really making connections with readers who can see that people are, on an emotional and social level, the same no matter when or where we live. Politics and war seems so large and impersonal, but the personal shows through in this sweeping saga. I am not familiar with the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and this seems like a fantastic introduction to a classic that should be more well-known and hopefully, with Tjoa's work here, will be. A very readable, enjoyable way to absorb some fascinating history.
