Smashwords book reviews by Elaina J Davidson

  • That Morning After from the Phoenix Series on June 07, 2013

    Janus does it again! That Morning After is a short(ish) story about Nicky, a woman recovering from her past, including divorce, and decides to try online dating sites…with some consequences! This is a well-balanced read and the author delves into the mind of her main character with great skill and finesse. We, the readers, quickly identify and desire to find out what comes next….the mark of a really good narrative, in my opinion. Weaved in is the reality of city life, the dangers of online dating, the smell of books in a bookshop, the sun and colours of Italy, the change that comes after mortality is left behind…oooh, you have to read it! That Morning After is a vampire story with a difference, folks, and well worth it. There are so much of them vamp tales out there, that it’s hard to stand out, but Janus Gangi concentrates of emotions and situations and people and their problems until it becomes a vamp tale with real depth. And it’s short enough to entice you, while being long enough to satisfy you! Loved it! And will definitely read the next instalment!
  • The Royal Wizard on March 23, 2016

    This is well written and I thoroughly enjoyed the read. However, while I actually love prologues, this prologue nearly had me abandoning the book – so glad I didn’t, for the rest is outstanding. At the end, we are told this was meant to be a standalone book, but halfway through I thought to myself this will definitely be part of a series. Apparently it is, and thank heavens. Much still needs to happen before this tale is told! Well done to the author. I am giving it four stars, but it deserves five, were it not for the prologue. I will definitely read the next book!
  • The Collars of Phaleran on July 10, 2016

    An epic quest, secrets, sorcery, a cult, religion and a runiac – yes, this has all the ingredients for Fantasy. I enjoyed the read, but felt there was something missing. I wished for more direct action rather than ‘seeing’ what others were up to via the magical sight employed. I felt that we should have gone direct to the various points of action and been with those characters, seen it from their points of view instead having it told to us. Also, when the scene changes there should be a break in the narrative to signify a change and this was not so. Large blocks of text made me somewhat square-eyed (although, admittedly, it could be my reading device). However, despite these issues, it is an imaginative work and well worth the read.
  • A Division of Souls - A Novel of the Mendaihu Universe on July 17, 2016

    I admit, I love big books and complicated stories. This is both and those two reasons are why I downloaded it. Of course, the word ‘souls’ also had me grabbing it, for I suspected it would be something greater, perhaps something inspiring, maybe something new. Yes, to all three! It did get a bit long-winded here and there and I wished the pace was a little faster on occasion, and yet this is an excellent read. It is otherworldly and also grounded in a reality we can identify with; this is definitely about souls, and also about love, the great, grand love that changes worlds. Despite sometimes feeling the story needed to move forward, at no stage did I abandon it – I needed to discover where the author was headed – and I am so glad I finished it. I will be reading more from this author and I highly recommend it to readers who enjoy complicated and mind-opening stories.
  • Watchers of the Night on Aug. 04, 2016

    The concept of a whole other way of living while in the world of dreams had me grabbing this read. When Paul falls asleep at sunset he wakes up to into a world where no one can see him. Yup, you know you want to find out what happens! Enter Astralis, a sleep disorder clinic with a massive secret, and you will be hooked. This is a read young adults will particularly enjoy, although I believe it is also suited to all ages. It does meander a bit here and there when I wished for the pace to pick up a bit, but overall this is an imaginative and affective story. Well done to the author!
  • The Apocalypse Script on Aug. 11, 2016

    A hidden code, a master race, a mystery, approaching collapse? Truly a must-read, in my opinion. And so I did. I am in two minds about this book; allow me to explain. On the one hand, the premise is excellent and is the reason I read all the way to the end (and want to read the next book!), but, on the other hand, it felt as if the narrative was distanced from the reader – in other words, it was hard to really care about the characters; I never felt personally involved with their fates (and it’s quite the fate!). It’s almost as if this … oh, epiphany! It was a series of SCRIPTS and it created a SCENARIO. The author will know what I mean by that, and you will too once you’ve read it, and now I say to you – read it! Because it does, after all make perfect sense. A worthy read indeed.
