Smashwords book reviews by headbees

  • Rift (A Wolven Tale) on Sep. 07, 2010

    As usual, Drummond excels at strong yet feminine women while much of the rest of the paranormal romance crowd dwells on either the bitch or the doormat. The story is almost entirely a mix of rapid-fire bickering and foreplay, (which is practically the same thing as Drummond presents them), and as expected is totally hot. Worth the price and then some.
  • Tria's Tale (After the Fall #1) on Sep. 07, 2010

    Excellent! I read this twice before finally getting down to writing a review. The main character, Tria, and the action plotline reminded me much of Robert A. Heinlein's "Friday", so I had to reacquire a copy of Friday to read again for comparison. Tria isn't artificial or polyamorous like Friday, but she possesses a similar practical attitude about work that needs to be done, kicks prodigious ass, and does so without ignoring her feminine side. The strong-willed character and her search for family are so similar to Friday's quest I was surprised to find out (by accident) the author hadn't read Friday. In short, if you like the women Heinlein based on Ginny, but prefer the sex scenes wouldn't fade to black, you can't go wrong with this. It's packed with action-- both the armory and amorous kind, and has a few twists if you're the "Oh, no!" type of reader. Two things I often find disappointing about science fiction are too often writers create details about aliens for the convenience of the plot, and the humans always win. I added an extra star because the cultural details of the Drac and Katarrs and all differ from each other but make perfect sense, and Earth actually surrenders. Both of these additions are unusual and deserving of notice.
  • Arcane Solutions (Discord Jones 1) on Feb. 08, 2012

    Drummond again masters the art of tightly knitting a Heinlein heroine with Whedonesque dialog in a world where paranormal seems normal. The first book in the Discord Jones series is dramatic and saturated with action but lightened up with considerable sarcastic and situational humor-- there's a self-defense scene that made me laugh so loud I woke the baby. (In fact, once I started I was only able to put it down when his naps were over. I didn't even remember to eat!)
