Melissa Crowe


I am from the Illawarra region of New South Wales, Australia. In 2009 I started writing and now have a multitude of stories in various stages of completion. My love for paranormal started from a young age and I like to find interesting new creatures to create stories about. I have decided I no longer want to end up in the publishing companies slush pile and have decided to self publish.

Smashwords book reviews by Melissa Crowe

  • Samsara (A Paranormal Romance) 3rd Edition on Aug. 10, 2012

    This story has more twists and turns than a roller coaster. Jut when you think you've guessed what will happen next, something else comes from left field. When I wasn't reading it, I was thinking of reading it just to see where it was headed. Great story.
  • The Bellwether Blood Witches Part I: Spellbound (A Paranormal Romance) on Sep. 18, 2012

    I enjoyed this story, it was a great idea and a great start to the series. This said, it did not leave me with the same desperation to know what's going to happen next, the way that Samsara did (also by this author). The ending seemed an awkward spot to finish and maybe could have been half a chapter longer, tying up a few loose ends. Also, there were too many variables/love intertests for Daisy which was a little distracting. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy this book and I will read the next one when it's released, but it felt like it was left in an awkward spot not the dramatic cliff hanger I was expecting.
  • The Bellwether Blood Witches Part II: Thursday's Child (A Paranormal Romance) on June 01, 2013

    I am so glad that Sara Collins released this book, I had been hanging for it for almost a year. She has left book 2 on another massive cliff hanger and I am biting my nails, hoping that I won't have to wait as long for the 3rd in this series. Without giving too much away, Daisy, David and Jamie have escaped the FVoL in their quest for freedom. Only to run head first into greater danger, escape that and dive into more than they could have ever expected. Just when you think the twins have escaped one dictatorial regime, they now find themselves in the midst of another. This is where the book ends. ARRGGHHHHH! Now, as my mind is ticking over (and I am having a Bellwether hangover) there are 4 possibilities that are playing over in my head. 1 lover will betray Daisy, 1 lover could find Daisy, 1 lover will save the day, or Daisy will be forced into the life she has fought so hard to escape from. I really enjoyed this book and cannot wait for the next instalment.
