Through pain, passion, prejudice, and pleasure, this series of poems and short stories definitely live up to the title. From the "A Tale of the Heart" series, which is drenched with emotion and very well written, to "Forever a Secret", which is joyfully scandalous, the short stories here are a perfect, and interesting, part of the batch. For poetry, there are several traditional style poems mixed in with some of a unique design. Either way, they're very well written, and powerful to boot. As a constructive critique to the Author, I only have to add that there are some noticeable grammatical errors, that might distract some readers. Overall, I will be reading this great collection again, including the awesome sneak peeks at upcoming works "The Living Nightmare" and "Eve's Hell". Don't miss out, get it and read it, because you'll love it.
This is a story with an incredible flow, so much so, I was surprised at how fast I was able to read through it. Don't take this as a negative, because I'm already planning on reading it again. Such a dark tale, both from an internal struggle view, and a very real sense of danger view. Cory, such a tragic, witty, and sarcastically amusing character, even without great supporting figures, she would keep you drawn in. I absolutely loved how the author didn't give away who, or even what, she really was until the end, it added that sense of mystery that keeps readers focused. I'm not usually one for supernatural books that involve romantic elements, but this is a definite winner. So get it, read it, love it, and read it again. Enjoy!!
I received this for free from the Author in exchange for an Honest review. This is a likable little collection of Poetry, mixing in some humor with mostly emotional topics. I don't believe this warrants the Adult-content rating, just a friendly Advisory to readers in the Synopsis. It does contain Adult Content, but nothing that would be considered explicit.
The Good: As poems are basically strong emotions or situations being described in verse, this does a great job. Also, I can tell that the basics of each poem showed originality and creativity from the Author. One more thing, the Author was very successful in displaying powerful Emotions with some powerful poems.
The Bad: Even though some of the Poems were a great success in describing and expressing Strong Emotions, others fell flat. There were definitely more than a few, including the first one, that tried so hard to show the emotion it was describing, but poor flow and over description made it feel emotionless. Happily, this is only relevant in a small percentage of the poems, but I do suggest the Author change the first poem, as that is one of the culprits.
Overall, I give it a 3.2 out of 5 Stars, I liked it, and some of them made me want to really like it, but than others took it away from me. Thanks and Happy Reading
