Smashwords book reviews by Christie Rich

  • Enchantment (The Channie Series Book One) on Nov. 02, 2011

    Thank you Charlotte for the entertaining read. I was given this book to review through Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy Fanatics read 2 review. This was a heartwarming tale of first love. Charlotte Abel is a talented writer and I look forward to seeing more from this author. I was able to hear the hickabilly in Channie's family without trying to read misspelled words which I think is quite a feat. Channie's family was pretty awful at times, but it only added to the story. I can't imagine parents actually being that horrible, but I also think some teens would disagree. The only problem I really had with this story was how young Channie and Josh were in relation to what happened with them. I realize it is fantasy and "normal" for the culture in the book, but I would have liked to have seen Channie be a little older. That being said, this is an original story that will make you root for the characters.
  • The Ylem (The Ylem Trilogy, # 1) on Dec. 13, 2011

    I loved this book from beginning to end. Can't wait to read the next one.
  • Break Away (Away, Book 1) on Jan. 02, 2012

    I really enjoyed this book. I found the plot completely original which is pretty hard to do now days. I have read the Ylem and liked it slightly better, but both are well worth the read. Tatiana Vila is a talented author and I can't wait to read more of her work!
  • A Marked Past on March 06, 2012

    I enjoyed reading A Marked Past, although it took me a while to get through the book. The second half went faster than the first for me. I liked Lyla as a character even though at first I thought I wouldn't. I was a bit disappointed with events at the end of the book, but that is just me. I am still curious enough to want to read the second installment. Leslie Deaton is descriptive and the world she created wonderful. I look forward to seeing more from this author.
  • The Curse Girl on April 19, 2012

    I absolutely loved this book! Not only was it a retelling of one of my all time favorite fairytales, it stood out more than I expected. Bee and Will were a hoot and I loved Kate Ellison's take on the witch and the curse. I had been toying with the idea of doing my own retelling of this classic, but reading this blew that thought right out of my mind. Ellison's take is perfect in my estimation. I wouldn't have done anything differently, well maybe a few things, but they are so insubstantial I would be writing the same book. lol. So if you are like me and love Beauty and the Beast, especially the Disney version, you have to read this book. I laughed so many times at the natural feeling banter. Bee became real to me. And as an author, I can't think of any highter praise than that. Great job Kate! I'll be looking into your other books for sure. I loved your style.
  • Water on April 27, 2012

    The premise of the story, the amazingly beautiful cover and recommendations from a few friends who had rated the book highly are what made me want to read Water. First of all, I like Terra's writing style. Reading this book was easy and most often fun. That being said, I didn't connect with the story or the characters as much as I wanted to. Don't get me wrong, the story is good, but a few things threw me off. Kailyn is portrayed as strong and snarky, but at times this mutates into a total disregard for other people. I am finding it hard to give a completely honest review here, because I don't like giving spoilers. Let's just say that Kaitlyn finds out she has negatively impacted the earth without realizing it, and yet later on in the story she does things without thinking about how it will impact the planet even though she is supposed to be earth conscious. As with other reviewer's, I felt the romance did not flow naturally. Although I did think the characters were strong. Overall this was an enjoyable read. Actual rating is 3.5 stars, but I always round up. This is an original story that has many great elements (haha), and if you like snarky heroines, Kaitlyn is your gal. The twists and turns keep you wondering what will happen to the very end.
  • Frost on May 17, 2012

    Kate Avery Ellison captured my interest with Curse Girl. I loved her writing style, and that did not change this time around. Ellison is gifted with telling stories without littering them with fluff. The world of the Frost is eerie and intriguing. I found Lia to be a great MC with realistic feelings and actions throughout the book. Ellison's other characters are written with a genuine feel as well. The villains were horrible and the heroes heroic. I have to say I was hoping for a different outcome in the end, but I am fine with what happened too. I left this read with questions even though this story was wrapped up nicely. I look forward to reading more from this bright author. Although I didn't enjoy Frost as much as Curse Girl, I still loved it.
  • What Kills Me on June 28, 2012

    So I'm a sucker for a beautiful cover. Sometimes you don't know what you will get when you open the pages, but I am pleased to say the inside of What Kills Me matches the beautiful shell. Sometimes I am leary to read another vampire story, but recently the genre seems to have a new face. I'm glad I didn't pass on this one especially. It's fresh and the mythology is intriguing. The action makes the story flow at a fast pace and the romance between Lucas and Zee developes in a realistic way throughout. I was actually a little frustrated with them for not figuring things out a little sooner. LOL. The ending was spectacular and leaves me wanting more. Wynne Channing is a seasoned writer and it shows in her prose. She has sparked my interest, and I will definitely be following her writing. I can't wait for more.
  • Centaur Legacy on Dec. 02, 2012
    (no rating)
    Nancy Straight has become one of my favorite authors as well as a dear friend. I had the opportunity to read an advanced copy of Centaur Legacy, and I was glued to the page throughout the book. Sometimes multiple points of view are hard to follow, but Nancy has done a fantastic job of helping the reader keep track. I just finished my second read, yes this book is that good, and I loved it even more this time. The story begins where we left off with Blood Debt. I loved the Strayer family from the beginning and we get to see more of Beau this time around. All I have to say is Nancy knows how to write Noble. Since in this world there are more centaurides that centaurs, it's difficult for the centaurs to find a wife. The whole idea of the centaur is romantic. It sort of reminds me of the Aurthurian legends with knights and damsels. That being said, the women in this story are not weak. They have powers that are important to the race, and each one of them is treasured. Beau has become one of my favorite characters in this series and his story is heartwarming. Cami and Drake are more like star-crossed lovers, not able to catch a break. They make a great couple and I loved following them through this story. Cami is strong and knows what she wants, while Drake is loyal and cares so much for her. The twists in the story will keep you on the edge of your seat. I loved how much Cami and Drake committed to each other. Although they face insurmountable odds, they tackle the problems together. We get to know more about the centaur legends and how the gods interact with the centaurs in the modern world. This is a must read series by an amazing author. I can't wait to read the next book, and I'm looking forward to see how Nancy is going to resolve that cliffhanger.
