This is a biting, humorous tale, which will make you snicker, laugh out loud and occasionally break out in a vicious grin. If you like your fantasy fiction combined with humor, or are a fan of writers like Douglas Adams, you'll love Djinnx'd. And better yet, there are more books in the series!!!
Reality Bites is another trip into the bitingly humorous world of Tamar Black. She of the lightning wit and sharp tongue is once again thrust into toil and troubles aplenty, but she has help-sort of. You will most certainly enjoy this latest excursion into a world teeming with likeable monsters, "soft-on-the-inside" hard-bitten cops, ditzy witches, overly sarcastic vampires, and un-heroic heroes! The entire crowd reminds one of a paranormal version of "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World"-there's even a treasure hunt, of sorts. Highly entertaining and laugh out loud funny, you'll find yourself still chuckling hours after reading it. Five stars all the way.
Nicola Rhodes continues to amaze. SCI 'ON is not only great fantasy fiction, it is also an excellent tale of human interactions and relationships across worlds and across time. Well written and thought provoking, I can't wait for the next volume!
Once again, Nicola Rhodes amazes me with her creativity! Tamar and co. must once again step up and save us all, in inimitable style. I literally couldn't stop reading-just HAD to know what came next, and was not disappointed (I never am, where her writing is concerned). No spoilers here, but things get VERY interesting very quickly, then race towards a unique conclusion. Five stars, two thumbs up, A+++, and any other positive rating I can give to this, and all the other Tamar books!!!
Nicola Rhodes has done it again. SCI'ON II, Legacies, is an emotional rollercoaster that will wring you dry, fill you with hope, frustrate you, thrill you, and when you've finished it, your brain will cry "UNCLE"! Her characters are real, you know someone just like each of them, and it's this skill, among others, that brings the level of her writing far above the hordes of wannabe fantasy writers.
She can see into your mind, find that dark place you ignore, and MAKE you look at it. She also fills you with hope, an extraordinary gift in itself, but in her case, just one of many. I HIGHLY recommend "Legacies"! It, and it's predecessor, SCI'ON, The Shadow Worlds, are must reads, and belong in your permanent library! A+A+A+A+A+++++!
