Smashwords book reviews by Mindy Wall

  • Helens-of-Troy on May 26, 2012

    This story is a clever premise, that the Helens have longer lives and are in tune with the spirit world. The story is a coming of age for the grand-daughter; a coming to terms with her powers and family business for the mother; and a resolving past issues for the grandma. It was a book that immediately grabbed you, demanded your attention, and kept you glued to the pages wanting more. I give this 4 out of 5 clouds.

  • Rest For The Wicked - The Claire Wiche Chronicles Book 1 on May 26, 2012
    (no rating)
    I have to say I love Cate Dean. Her books are fresh, unexpected, and unique. Rest For The Wicked - The Claire Wiche Chronicles Book 1 is an individual take on the traditional witch fantasy tale. Cate takes the fantasy tale of witches and throws in a little Jinn (male genie) and some demons for good measure. I was kept guessing right to the very end. I’m really glad it’s Book 1 because that means we will be seeing more of these characters, and I fell in love with them all. Sometimes a book ends and you are satisfied with where the characters are and what has happened to them, or you know enough to be able to picture how the story ends. I sooooo didn’t get that with this book. I want to know more, much more. I give this book 4.5 out of 5 clouds, and anxiously await book 2 (see fingers tapping anxiously on table as I wait). @dreamer2229 Books, Books, and More Books http://dream-reader-dreamer2229.blogspot.com/
  • Deadly Addiction (Deadly Vices, Book 2) on May 26, 2012

    In addition to being a wonderful romance story, this book offers a unique look at the life on an American Indian reservation. The political issues in this book are common in many populations. A reservation just seems to be a microcosm of our world. We get a closer look at prejudice, in one of its many forms, and how that can impact relationships. In addition, the men in this story are hot. Not only the hero, but also his friends and family who help him save his family and the girl. The political intrigue and setting help set this book apart from others in the genre. And having a good story to go with the heat helped push this book to 4 out of 5 clouds.

  • Just One Drop, Book 3 The Grey Wolves Series on May 26, 2012

    “Just One Drop” is the third book in the Grey Wolves Series. The first book is “Prince of Wolves,” and the second is “Blood Rites.” While these books can be read alone, they are best read in order of the series. I have always loved shifter books, especially when there is an alpha. That whole primal thing… yes I should have my head examined but it’s only in my fantasy so I’m okay. In “Just One Drop,” the werewolves have a Gathering, or the “Mate Fest” as Sally and Jen deemed it. We find out lots of interesting facts about Jen, Sally, Decebel, and all the other werewolves. We also finally resolve the issue of Decebel and his mate. I was glued to the pages. I literally read all three in about 5 hours. That’s how quickly I got pulled into the stories. Yes, I read really fast, but still. The books are totally appropriate for YA, I would even let my 16 year old daughter read them. The snarky humor cracked me up and the sizzle is totally PG at the most… although it makes the most of the PG. I have to admit I would love to meet these guys in person. Yes, I’m old (at least that’s what my kids say) and happily married, but yummy ;D. I have to say I think I like Decebel the best. I have a warm spot in my heart for the bad guy with the heart of gold. My only complaint… and it’s a big one…. was the HUGE cliffhanger ending. Ack! Why?? And who is this new person who suddenly shows up? All I can say is the next book better be out soon. I think I have a new author to add to my list of favorites and must read anything written by… I give this series as a whole 5 out of 5 clouds. As for the books, Book 1 is 5 out of 5 clouds. Book 2 gets 4.5 out of 5 clouds because it is the only one I really felt couldn’t be read as a stand-alone. And Book 3 gets 5 out of 5 clouds. @dreamer2229 Books, Books, and More Books http://dream-reader-dreamer2229.blogspot.com/
  • Blood Rites, Book 2 The Grey Wolves Series on May 26, 2012

    In “Blood Rites,” Jacqueline and Jen, one of her best friends, are injured on the way to Jacque’s blood rite ceremony. Jen meets Decebel, who would make eggs boil in their carton in the fridge. Yep, he’s smokin’ hot. And their relationship take two books to even get to making sense. Although if they had asked anyone who had eyes, they could have saved themselves a whole lot of heartache. Oh and Jacque meets her dad… things could go better. I was glued to the pages. I literally read all three in about 5 hours. That’s how quickly I got pulled into the stories. Yes, I read really fast, but still. The books are totally appropriate for YA, I would even let my 16 year old daughter read them.

  • Blood Rites, Book 2 The Grey Wolves Series on May 26, 2012

    In “Prince of Wolves,” we meet all the main characters, but it is basically the story of how Prince Fane meets his blood mate, a half human (who had no clue she was half were) named Jacqueline. He ends up having to kill to protect her. I was glued to the pages. I literally read all three in about 5 hours. That’s how quickly I got pulled into the stories. Yes, I read really fast, but still. The books are totally appropriate for YA, I would even let my 16 year old daughter read them.

  • Drasmyr (Prequel: From the Ashes of Ruin) on May 26, 2012

    Initially I was a bit confused as the book moves back and forth between the minds of Coragan and Drasymr. Once I got used to the voice used for each character it was fairly easy to tell when the author moved from one character to the other. But initially I was a bit confused when the bounty hunter started talking about being hunted and having a girl trying to shoot him. Eventually I realized it was Drasymr, the vampire. That helped clear a lot of things up. The book is a different take on the vampire story, a much darker and more evil vampire. This book was much more along the lines of Frankenstein or what I think Dracula would be like, with the creepy evil guy and the twist making you look over your shoulder. When my kids were little we took my daughter on the haunted house ride at Disneyland. It scared her to death and she was convinced the ghost followed her home; I’m going to be looking over my shoulder for vampire for a while. That’s the sign of a good book. I happily give this book 4 out of 5 clouds. @dreamer2229 Books, Books, and More Books http://dream-reader-dreamer2229.blogspot.com/
