Smashwords book reviews by A Brooks

  • Enigma on Nov. 09, 2012

    A fun and excellent story to tide us over while we wait for Decrypted. Great series, with adventure, likeable characters, and humor.
  • Encrypted on April 10, 2013

    Anyone reading the "Emperor's Edge" series won't want to miss this, but can be enjoyed on its own for what makes all of Lindsay Buroker's books great: humor and fun, good character development, action and adventure. Tikaya is an endearing heroine: smart, funny, accident-prone. Loved the glimpse of young Sicarius. I've read all of Buroker's books now and highly recommend all of them.
  • Forged in Blood I (The Emperor's Edge Book 6) on June 21, 2013

    This series continues to be enjoyable, well-written, well-edited and formatted. Can't wait for the next book.
  • Degrees of Delusion on June 21, 2013

    I have read and enjoyed all of this author's other books, and was interested to see an earlier, previously unpublished story. A bit different than either of the series, but with plenty of action and humor; another enjoyable tale.
  • Spying in High Heels on July 03, 2013

    A light and funny mystery. A good read if you want to relax and not have to think.
  • Warrior Mage (Chains of Honor, Book 1) on May 07, 2015

    Readers new to this world can enjoy this as a stand-alone novel. There is enough recap so that new readers won't be lost, but not enough to spoil it for those who have not yet read the other books, and long-time readers will not be bored by too much recap. I highly recommend any readers who have not yet done so, to check out both the Emperor's Edge and Swords and Salt series, as well as the related books Encrypted, Enigma, and Decrypted. You won't want to miss out on all the fun. Great fantasy/adventure series, with humor and lots of action; anyone from teens to age 99 and up can enjoy. I am looking forward to more adventures in this new series, with Yanko, Dak, Lakeo and that very rude parrot, as well as cameos by characters from the other books. It was fun seeing what Akstyr is up to these days, in this book. Seems like he'd get on well with the parrot. Or perhaps not.
  • The Blade's Memory (Dragon Blood, Book 5) on July 23, 2015

    Another great addition to an enjoyable series. This one is a bit darker and less humorous than previous books, as is appropriate for building to the climax of this series, and the situation becomes increasingly grim and dangerous. As always, Jaxi can be counted on for tension-breaking snark and pranks, as well as impressive pyrotechnics. Cas was starting to seriously worry me for awhile, and I hope to learn more of what she's thinking and how she'll deal with the consequences of what happened to her in this tale, as well as learn what Tylie and the dragon are up to now.
