Smashwords book reviews by Vera Gustev

  • Origins on Sep. 01, 2011

    After some getting used to, with the author's style, I enjoyed it, it was getting better & better as it moved along, until the unexpected finale; the battle scene at the end of the 1st chapter was epic! I've read the 2nd edition.
  • Kill Her Not (Naked Spooks) on Sep. 04, 2011

    One of the best shorties I've read this year. Not much of a romance here, but the sex scene was... let's just say I've read it a couple of times back to back. There is a storyline predisposing us for the next instalments in the series. 4 stars.
  • The Lodge & the Tribe on Oct. 11, 2011

    A relentless drive through pro-revolution Paris, strange and bloody as much as beautiful at times. A story that requires a very strong stomach, dark and powerful with characters extremely flawed, full of dirty secrets and vices. A protagonist that you will hate, because he's an arrogant and cunning monster, a lying but deadly, shell of a man, a dark hero in the true sense of the word that only after grasping the true nature of the events unfolding around him, he'll reach a small semblance of redemption in our eyes and become a little more likable... Barely. I enjoyed it immensely, it gave me almost no dull moment but for the conclusion of some of the sub-stories and especially the end of one of the main characters that left me almost angry. But then again I like it when that happens. Some minor flaws but overall a brilliant effort. Four and a half stars easily. I read the kindle edition and because there are parts written in Latin, French and even German, although translated adequately, it helped me a lot at times.
  • The Ghost of the Cazador (Dark Hunters 1) on Oct. 26, 2011

    A delightful story. Overflowing with sharp wording, dark humor, a brilliant cynic character, who should have had a bigger role in the Lodge & the Tribe, a surprisingly detailed setting and clever plotting that leaves you with absolutely no dull moment throughout. I read it in a seating and it left me craving for more. A bit on the short side but a must read, one of the better stories I've read all year. Five stars.
