Smashwords book reviews by Madeline Walsh

  • Gold Train (Accidental Spy Russia Adventure) on Dec. 21, 2011

    Twilight with a Pulse AND a Vodka Twist - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! I enjoyed reading this book very much! I felt that I couldn't put it down, it is very passionate. I would VERY HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who loves suspense and adventure mysteries! The book is very well written. I was lovestruck with the interaction between the characters, how well they work together, complimenting one another so well to solve the mystery. Jade Snow is a very intuitive, resourceful, quick thinking, witty heroine and Alexei is well... a total hunk. I love how the plot develops, very thrilling story of conspiracy that might potentially overthrow the Russian government, shift the balance of power and lead to dire consequences, even to another World War! The plot had me by the edge of my seat, the twists and turns had me thinking, what's Jade gonna do next? What would I do if I were in her position? Very powerful fast action pace kept me reading to the very end! I loved the colorful descriptions of life unfolding before my eyes in Moscow, St Petersburg, the Menshikov Mansion, Grand Ball, the infamous KGB/FSB headquarters, high-speed trains and gorgeous Russian Metro. The grand ballroom scene was magnificent, I could see myself dancing in the arms of some Prince in a mysterious far off land... so romantic. Alexei stood out as a character because he is so strong, handsome and debonnaire. He can literally charm the pants off any girl... I wouldn't mind being alone in a hotel room with him... so hot and sexy, I was dripping with anticipation. I would love to read more about Alexei in the future Jade Snow books! In Gold Train, I think everyone will find mystery, suspense, action, passion, romance... and an amazing timeless story!
  • Stepford USA (Accidental Spy Small Town Adventure) on Jan. 14, 2012

    Finding the monster within... A Beautifully Written Tale! While the story is told with light-hearted humor, deep, dark, hidden secrets is the theme of this book. It shows great insight into human behavior, perceptions and manipulations. The book has a true to life quality about it. It's amazing how the minority in power can manipulate a whole population to suit their own agenda! I like how the story portrays the "Stepfordness" of the town, how mindless consensus and conformity can dangerously create serious injustices in this world. Remember, Stepford is not just a physical location, it's a state of being inherent in the human condition. A timely written warning that only when we can honestly look within, can we identify and root out all the evil without. Very well written and gripping tale that will leave you guessing to the very end! Excellent storytelling!
  • Catharsis, Legend of the Lemurians (Earth Keepers Chronicle 1) on Sep. 17, 2012
    star star star star star
    A Beautiful Tale of Paradise Lost and Paradise Found! What does it mean to be ugly, Truly ugly from the inside-out? We are about to find out as Author, Lada Ray, takes us on a timeless adventure from a distant galaxy far away and long ago. Lessons "forgotten" tend to repeat themselves throughout history until we ultimately learn from them. This cautionary tale shows how our ancient ancestors, the Lemurians, lived their lives with love. They cared for one another and united as one people. Thus they can overcome any adversity that is trusted upon them, even the destruction of their home planet! We can learn a lot "remembering" what it means to be human, because if we don't unite as a people, we would certainly fall from grace. "Catharsis" is a timely tale that warns us about how our collective future may unfold if we don't wake up!
  • The Earth Shifter on Jan. 08, 2013
    star star star star star
    If you could read just one book this year, seriously consider The Earth Shifter! This metaphysical fantasy/thriller is simply one of the most compelling stories you'll find. Author Lada Ray expertly weaves a tale about the consequences that mankind's insanity has upon the world. The historical content is fantastic, I've learned a lot. The book is rich with historical references, time traveling flashbacks and exotic locales. The apocalyptic theme addresses probable futures for humanity, depending upon how mankind chooses its fate. The main protagonist is a smart, sassy teenage girl named Sasha. Seemingly living a normal, happy childhood growing up, imbued with special powers beyond her understanding, she has the unenviable task of saving the world! Through many mystical adventures and tribulations, she comes to understand her destiny, along with the daunting responsibility of preserving life so the evolution of human consciousness can continue. The adventure is all-encompassing and epic in scope, and the author mindfully balances multiple story lines where the characters play a very crucial role in the outcome. Nothing is pre-determined in life, and the future is wide open as the major players fight to bend "reality" according to their will. There are major lessons that we humans need to learn and accept, the defining realization being that we are all connected in some ineffable mysterious way, which may not be apparent to us in the course of our daily existence, but plays a necessary part in the grand scheme of things. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but trust me, you will be thoroughly engrossed with the story! There are many engaging subplots which intertwine and reinforce the central theme of struggle, love, acceptance and transcendence. My favorite character is Red! Like an enigma within a chinese puzzle box, this vivacious raven haired seductress is amazing. A girl after my own heart, she is pure mystery with her own unique agenda and plays a crucial role in the outcome of the story. Wait until you visit her underground home and the juicy drag racing scene! Don't want to give away any spoilers... you must read for yourself. ;) The spiritual/ metaphysical message is strong throughout the book, you can really relate with the characters and find yourself rooting for the best possible outcome of the story. It's the ultimate thrill ride, your soul will cry out for justice, cheer, shout out for resolution and redemption. It's that kind of book which elicits the best and worst of humanity, but most importantly reflects our own foibles and struggles with life. Easily a wonderful, thought-provoking book, which I highly recommend to everyone of all ages. It's a real eye-opening, earth-shifting experience for sure!
