Smashwords book reviews by K.C. Faelan

  • Giving Consent on March 02, 2018

    I received 'Consent' for an honest and unbiased review. This story is told in third person through the eyes of both Travis Winslet, a Survivalist, and Skye Randall, who’s looking for a Dom he can connect with, and respect. I’ve read a few of Bruce Rose’s books and have enjoyed all of them. 'Consent' is the story of a kidnapping and how that kidnapping deeply changes the life of two men, even though they stayed with each other for three days. Be forewarned, you’ll have to suspend belief because kidnappings in reality, don’t end up as nice as this one. This kidnapping reminds me of a fairytale. The kind where the Pirate makes off with the Prince/Princess and then the adage, ‘If you love something, set it free,’ comes into play. Travis is a very lonely man. So lonely that his common sense flies out the window, and he decides to kidnap a young man and try to convince this man to stay with him for the rest of his life. His actions made me think Travis was not smart, which we find out later is not the case. Travis is smart and quite attuned to people. Fortunately, Travis kidnaps Skye, who wants to be kidnapped because he thinks it’s a paid kink scene. Once Travis figures this out and finds out how nice Skye is, Travis’ guilt of lying starts to eat at him. At the start of the story, Travis is all about what he wants. Yes, he does treat Skye well, but the idea to kidnap someone is all about what Travis wants. Skye is eager to please and continues to think that his days with Travis are a ‘scene.’ The juxtaposition of Travis keeping the secret of the real reason for the kidnapping from Skye, and Skye’s eager willingness to please lends a humorous air to the story. Skye is who keeps the plot from dragging or from getting too serious. 'Consent' is character driven with Travis and Skye discovering each other, but mostly with Travis teaching Skye control and helping him find confidence in himself. Skye does the most growing. In the end, Travis puts Skye’s well-being above his own even though Travis knows he’ll be broken forever. Then comes the fairytale ending. The only thing I would’ve liked at the ending would’ve been some info on Skye and Travis discussing Skye’s fiber art, and how he planned to contribute to their household. Instead, it was glossed over with ‘both men had to adjust.’ I wanted more info and conversation after the two got back together, because the conclusion felt very rushed and it did take away some of the enjoyment I had for the rest of the story. It’s not a good way to end a book. This is probably one of the top two books I’ve read by this author. I give Consent, 4 Stars
  • Marked by Death on Nov. 14, 2020

    'Marked by Death' is the first book in the ‘Necromancer’ series. It’s told in third person through the eyes of Darien Green, a young man who’s possessed by ghosts, and Silas Thornwood, a powerful necromancer. Originally released by the author in weekly installments in her author’s group, 'Marked by Death' was supposed to be a one-off flash fiction. But so many people, including me, begged her to continue with this story, and here it is. I’m so glad she did, because I love the world and characters. I liked the story so much, I’ve read it three times so far, and I almost never re-read a book. This book is set in an alternate 1960s era where magic lives side-by-side, but hidden, from the mundane world. Magic is considered something to laugh at or not taken seriously. Which is fine with the sorcerers and necromancers. In fact, they have people who work at making magic seem trivial. The blurb gives a good idea of the beginning of the story and why Darien searches out a necromancer to rid him of the ghosts he carries. There are some issues between Darien and Silas, the necromancer, at first, but Darien really wants the ghosts gone. He’s losing his mind. All the characters are terrific and have distinct personalities. Darien is twenty-one, impulsive, impatient, outspoken, a bit brash, and has powerful magic, even if he doesn’t know how to control it yet. Silas is over thirty, cautious, intelligent and powerful. He’s attracted to Darien, but sex between men is still considered a crime, and he doesn’t want to endanger either of them if they are caught. Darien on the other hand has other ideas. Grim is Silas’s sarcastic, wise, and visionary familiar. Grim helps lighten the story when it starts getting too dark. I had no trouble in believing in Darien and Silas as a couple. As I mentioned, I really enjoyed the world the author created as she wove magic into everyday 1960s living. Normally, I don’t like stories set in the not too distant past, but this book was filled with magic. I’m a weakling when it comes to dark or spooky stories, and this had demons and ghosts. However, I was able to get through it, but not without taking breaks. I’m sure it won’t bother most readers. Two of my most favorite parts of the story was how Darien helped Silas during the battle and also after the battle as they headed home. I’m looking forward to when 'Powered by Ghosts', the next book in the series, comes out. In the meantime, I highly recommend 'Marked by Death' and give it a solid 5 Stars.
