RN by trade, writer for fun and pleasure. I'm currently working on a futuristic teen sci-fi/dragon book and am really enjoying getting to know my characters. I hope to put my first book out within the next few months.

Smashwords book reviews by Martina

  • Amulet on June 06, 2010

    Good read!
  • A Dream! on May 10, 2011

    Sorry, I just couldn't get into it.
  • Haven: The Beginning on May 15, 2011

    I like it! It catches your attention quickly and moves right along. My only suggests would be to format a little more like a book rather than big paragraphs as it would be easier to read and might flow better. The middle of the book seems a bit rough with sluggish wording/interchange, almost a little trite; but otherwise a fun read! Thanks. Keep it up!
  • Legacy of a King on June 17, 2011

    Sorry, I couldn't get into it. The writing was awkward and run-on. I think the plot premise has merit, but you need to brush up on the editing.
  • Blood Test (Code:Black Part 1) on Feb. 03, 2013

    Like the other reviewer said, there is some tense confusion and simple typos. Nice read, moves right along, builds tension well. Looking forward to more.
  • Falling on Feb. 18, 2013

    Nice short story that really builds the supense. Some of the wording comes across as awkward but overall it's a fun read.
  • The Treehouse at Shadow Lake on Feb. 18, 2013

    I had a hard time getting into it. The frequent word repetition put me off (time, time, camp, camp) and the plot didn't grab my interest. There just wasn't enough built in suspense to keep me reading. I didn't make it past page 4. Sorry.
  • The Lady of Roch Shan on Feb. 18, 2013

    Very well written. I love the author's way with words, the images she portrays. This is a well told tale that builds the suspense and wraps it up neatly in a tidy little package. A few minor typos and some scattered uneven wording left me confused here and there, which is why I give it a 4 star. Otherwise it's a solid 5. Read it aloud and you'll catch them yourself. Thanks!
