  • A Woman To Die For on May 27, 2013
    star star star star
    A Woman To Die For is an entertaining short story. A lot is left to the imagination, but the author, Jim Davis, kept me reading. I would certainly not want to be in the shoes of the private investigator, Jack Benhorn. Every scene in the story was a bit frightening. For example, entering a bar and having all of the patrons point their guns at you is just plain overwhelming. I’ve never been to Texas, and wonder if towns like Cattone really do exist. There is a twist at the end that I should have seen coming. I won’t, of course, spoil it for other readers. There was enough here for a full-length novel, that I would have found equally enjoyable.

    Unlike a few other people, I was not turned off by the few formatting and editing issues. I found this story to be a fast reading page turner. Half-way through I felt like a detective, attempting to unravel the mystery before the author revealed it. Although at the beginning of the story a number of seemingly unrelated characters are introduced, the author quickly ties them into a very neat package. I thoroughly enjoyed Davis's story and plan to read more of his work.
  • Hunger Moon on Sep. 06, 2013

    I read a wide range of genres and am always interested in reading something different. I have never read a book of this kind. Fantasy stories are seldom on my radar. I was ambivalent when I began reading Melissa Snark’s Hunger Moon. Very happily, I discovered the book to be an interesting read and a thought provoking story. I enjoy mysteries and always attempt to guess where the author is going. Snark kept me guessing wrong. Underneath this multi-leveled fantasy, we find a young, beautiful werewolf, Victoria Storm. ‘Vic’ is locked in conflict not only with hunters seeking the destruction of her pack and an evil witch threatening her goddess arranged mate, and the life of his son, but also with her own need to find an alpha to help her lead her pack. Snark keeps throwing effective roadblocks in front of Victoria, the brother of a dead lover; her own mysterious goddess; a strange librarian; Lori, the ghost of her potential mate’s wife; and most important Logan, the son of Arik, her prospective life mate. Not being at all versed in this type of fantasy, I found all the unique attributes of the werewolf world intriguing. Victoria’s travels to Valhalla and her Nordic connection added yet another layer of fabric interwoven into her complex world. The final battle in the story (the outcome of which I would never give away) has just enough of a twist to bring everything together in an entertaining finale. Snark certainly left me wanting to read more. Throughout the book, I felt like Logan and Victoria were siblings more than anything else. I can remember vicious fights with my own sibling when we were younger. We’d often wait for TV commercials to come on before jumping at each other’s throats and stop immediately when the program began again. Of course, we became best of friends later in life. I wonder how Snark will develop Logan and Victoria’s relationship in the next book, I hope she writes. Will the pair build a warm relationship or will they always be at war? Though this story boils to to a young woman seeking a husband, the fact that it is couched in the mythical world of werewolves makes it so far above an adolescent romance that it is an enjoyable and interesting read for anyone with a willingness to have their belief in the ‘real’ world tested.
