Smashwords book reviews by Rachel D. Thompson

  • The Weight of Blood, (The Half-Orcs, Book 1) on April 03, 2010

    I really enjoyed this book and will probably pick up the second one. Although the characters were at times goofy and at other times deadly serious, I cared about what happened to them--even when their actions led them down a dark path.
  • Spinward Fringe Broadcast 0: Origins on April 26, 2010

    Very enjoyable story, with great characters and quite a few epic sci fi battles. I only wish that the editing was a little better--there were far too many grammatical errors for me. Often that's enough to make me stop reading a story, but this one kept me hooked right until the very end.
  • The Blood That Bonds on May 12, 2010

    I enjoyed this book very much. It held a lot of emotional highs and lows and I am eagerly looking forward to the sequel. The Blood that Bonds contains an original take on vampires and likable characters that pulled me right into the story from the first page.
  • Mortal Ghost on May 28, 2010

    I absolutely loved this book. The characters were all immensely likable, although I feel like this book could have been stretched out into at least two books. There seemed to be events missing in between scene changes and you never truly find out where the main character, Jesse, came from, even though his past is teased about quite a bit. Still, this came with a surprise ending, and I found I could not put it down until I reached the conclusion.

    What a wonderful book! I enjoyed it from cover to cover. The author has created beautiful, well-defined characters, a rich world, and seemingly impossible obstacles for the characters to overcome. Beautifully written.
  • The Keeping on May 08, 2012

    First off, I am not really a fan of werewolf books. But when I first stumbled across this series, I devoured the first book before forgetting about it and moving on to other things. Luckily I stumbled across the second book just sitting on my e-reader, waiting for me, and it was really like slipping back into a familiar setting, with a recognizable, lovable cast of characters. Even though this book is relatively long, I still finished it in about two days, and I'm looking forward to reading the next one. It's kind of a shame the author is giving these all away for free, as they are so enjoyable I think people would willingly pay for them, but I also have to say that I probably wouldn't have stumbled across these if they weren't free, so it's a double-edged sword. My only complaint is that the editing could be tightened up a bit to relieve plenty of misplaced commas and typos, but the pacing and character development are all there, making these great romance stories that are hard to put down.
