Smashwords book reviews by Alina Popescu

  • The Impaler's Revenge on Sep. 05, 2013

    I like me a little politics in my vampire stories, it seems :) I love Ioana's twist on vampire novels, making Romania the only vamp free country in the world. It's interesting to watch the political game, the hate between races, the reactions of the main character when everything she's ever considered to be her reality is challenged by facts she was unaware of. I saw some reviewers mentioning she was a little cold and hard to relate to, but I had a soft spot for her nonetheless. Someone in her position would automatically maintain a safe distance between herself and the rest of the world. Readers should at time feel that distance. Plus, her past perfectly explains her reaction. Can't wait to see what happens in part II :)
  • No Getting Over You on Jan. 06, 2014

    Short and sweet, loved the story
  • Trap Me! - Finally, a Happy Gay Furry Adventure on Sep. 03, 2015

    When I heard of this gay furry adventure that’s supposed to be happy, I was intrigued. Did I have doubts? Not really, I’ve read enough yaoi manga that featured wolves and bears and cats and foxes that took on humanoid features, and I enjoyed those stories. If however you have any doubts, forget them now and just read! I’d classify this as young adult, although it’s appropriate for all ages, from middle grade to adult. Aidan and Zack’s adventure reminded me of the books I used to read when I was younger. The trials, the funny, awkward, and sweet moments, the danger and the mystery all blend together in a gripping story through a furry world where these two characters experience an adventure nofur has ever seen before. Although understated, the love story between Aidan and Zack is evident to everybody, except them two. And even later on, only one of them figures out what’s going on. It’s beautifully told, slow paced (contrasting with the much faster pace of their adventure) and sweet. I’d use moe here, for those who know this particular Japanese term 😀 The relic quest reminiscent of Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider was a great choice – a lost artifact, former priests, a destroyed city, a map that was locked away and kept secret. The right number of adventurers comes together at the right time, yet through it all, not everything is as it appears. A fun, easy, sweet read, with great illustrations from the two authors, Trap Me! is definitely a recommended read.
