Smashwords book reviews by Donna K. Weaver
- The Key of Kilenya
on Oct. 16, 2011
I've been enjoying this story a lot. I love how the notes/diary in the beginning of most of the chapters provide hints not only of the past but of what is about the happen to the characters.
Readers who enjoyed the Fablehaven story should get a kick out of this book.
- The Ember Gods (Kilenya Series, 2)
on Dec. 17, 2011
Poor Jacob. He thought things were challenging in book 1, The Key of Kilenya.
There's only a break of a couple of weeks between the end of Key and The Ember Gods, but he's got even more to deal with. Still carrying the burden the friend left behind at the end of Key, he's got to juggle things he didn't in his last story. He'd been pulled into that world and was able to focus all his attentions on it.
Now he must learn patience. Others have to put thing in order for a rescue mission. He has to balance his responsibilities in Eklaron as the only one able to use the power of the Key, while in the "real life" school has started. Amidst homework, self-defense training, trying to be noticed by the basketball coach, searches for potion ingredients, the unwanted attention of a girl, and staying out of the way of the creepy, power-seeking Lorkon, Jacob's getting less and less sleep. And it's taking its toll.
And don't forget the secrets Jacob didn't know were being kept from him.
- Stealing Mercy
on Jan. 20, 2012
I really enjoyed the quirky characters in "Stealing Mercy". Mercy was nothing if not determined, and she wasn't about to let anything stand in her way. Since I tend to be rather independent myself, I could relate to her desire to do it all herself.
And poor Trent. He doesn't really know what hits him from the first time he see her in her breeches and knows she's female. She intrigues him, frustrates him with her willfulness and unwillingness to trust him, and she brings out his protectiveness.
The modern-day story that woven in between captivated me. I loved the telling of two stories in two different times, and I'm thrilled to hear the modern story will get more time in Kristy's next book.

She has the guy. The terrorists have been taken care of and she is on the brink of being popular. Life is GREAT! Until they find her. Now she must run and leave behind everything she knows, including herself.
This is quite the ride. I was going to take my time working my way through this book, but I had to finish it. I really felt for Christy as she enters the witness protection program and leaves behind everyone she knew and loved in order to protect not only herself, but them as well. She's told she can never again be who she was.
To help protect her, she is trained in the arts of protecting herself. And boy does she need it!
- A Candlelight Courting: A Short Christmas Romance
on Sep. 14, 2012
What my stars mean:
5 Stars--the book had a profound impact on me. It touched me on some special level and lingered with me long after I'd finished reading it.
4 Stars--I loved this book. If I don't own it, I will buy it so I can read it again and again.
3 Stars--I enjoyed the book but may have had an issue or two with it.
2 Stars--I had more than a few issues with it.
1 Stars--I hated it.
I've been hearing wonderful things about Joyce's books for a while now, and I jumped at the chance to read this one. First of all, I love Christmas stories (even read my teen boys one of Mary Higgins Clark's Christmas offerings--and they liked it . . . probably because of the kidnapping). I've also been a fan of historical fiction--and not just romance. I'm as big a fan of Sharpe and Horatio Hornblower as I am of Austen.
I thoroughly enjoyed the lovely, subtle courtship Burthred does with Meg and especially as the characters are unfolded in the story. I learned to love them as they revealed their secrets (usually unwillingly) to each other.
I won't say anymore because I don't want to spoil anything for you.
