Pet thought he'd slammed the door shut on his past, on his dreams, and on the centaur herd that raised him. Now there's another herd runaway standing on his doorstep; one who won't take no for an answer.

Smashwords book reviews by Alex Draven

  • Flight of the Hawk on Nov. 12, 2010

    G.R. Grove's knowledge of the period gives this story such solid roots, and Gwernin and Neirin are joyous travelling companions. The lyrical patterning and the stories-within-stories grew more and more compelling as the book progressed, and I found myself pulled more and more into their world. It's always a gamble starting with book #2 of a series, but this time it paid off, and I will be going back to pick up #1 as soon as my budget allows.
  • Divine Intervention on July 16, 2011

    It's an alternative 2012, and Agent Jasmine McLellan is using her fire-psychic skills to track down a serial arsonist in British Columbia... and we're launched into an unusual police procedural thriller with a personal twist. I didn't really 'gel' with Jasi, the main protagonist, and the romance element really didn't do anything for me, but the near-future setting (2012 as imagined from the early 2000's) and the low-key paranormal elements with the different psychic skills exhibited by Jasi and her team mates drew me in.

    Really enjoyable noir urban fantasy, which doesn't flinch from confronting the brutal things people do, with and without demonic assistance.

    Really enjoyable noir urban fantasy, which doesn't flinch from confronting the brutal things people do, with and without demonic assistance. The humour, character focus, and the very likeable first person voice kept me turning the pages, keen to know how things were going to work out for Jimmy. My one criticism is that it seemed a bit afloat in time - the noir style pulling it back in time, the modern details trying to keep it present day.
  • Sweet Masterpiece - The First Sweet’s Sweets Bakery Mystery on Dec. 31, 2012

    Top notch - a real treat
  • Dog Boys on Dec. 31, 2012

    Fantastic - urban fantasy in the true sense, rooted in a specific place, drawing on local myths, and built around characters that you can't help but sympathise with. An excellent read.
  • Dharma on Dec. 31, 2012

    A real treat of a short story
  • The Butter Spirit's Tithe on Dec. 31, 2012

    Classic de Lint, and a really enjoyable read!
  • Jack in the Green on Dec. 31, 2012

    A real treat of a read
  • Companions to the Moon on Dec. 31, 2012

    A lovely clash of real-world questions and fantasy answers - my heart went out to Mary!
  • Encrypted on April 06, 2013

    Really enjoyable character-driven SF adventure. (There's one decision the author made towards the end of the book that really bothered me, which is the only reason this isn't a 5* for me)
