Smashwords book reviews by Laura Nusen

  • The Lost Immortals: When Copper Suns Fall on Feb. 29, 2012

    I wasn't draw into the book immediately. I had a hard time picturing the descriptions the author was describing. Unfortunately for me, I really wanted to like this book. Some parts felt rushed, some parts flushed out nicely. The lack of clear descriptions left me unable to picture what the author was describing. This was very frustrating for me and I struggled to "get into" the book. The book lacks background information about the "Great War" and the lack of vivid descriptions about places left me wondering what the heck was going on. The author could have painted the picture for me better and explained the background information about the society that the reader is expected to know. I also had a difficult time understanding the hierarchy of the angel classes and how they mixed with humans. Those humans with chromosomal gifts were also hard to understand and how they were classified. The characters needed to be developed just a bit further and the hierarchy of classes explained just a bit better. The book end up frustrating me without answering all my questions. I wanted more background, more character development, explanation of the virus and why they must take the Ale-meds. The description of the book made me want to read the book but I finished it with more questions than answers. I was hoping the book would have lived up to the description, but I was disappointed. I did enjoy the book and did finish it. It has the potential to be a great book. The story is unique and original. It didn't feel like another dystopian book I have read. I just expected it to flow better and paint me pictures of the descriptions and not feel so hurried. A few more pages wouldn't have hurt the story and might have helped to address the lack of background and the character development as well as the pace of the story. As a first time author, KsSonndra Leigh did an admirable job. I will read the next book in the series and I am hopeful my questions will be answered in that book. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to read the book and review it for free!
