Smashwords book reviews by marsha thalleen

  • Undefeated (Complete Series books 1-4) on Feb. 01, 2013

    I am so glad that I received all four of these books at the same time. I could not wait an extra minute to read the next one. All four books are separate love stories revolving around the same "family" of characters. I love them all. The stories were spellbinding and emotional. I laughed and cried. Paul is still my favorite, though. Four must reads!
  • Scapemaker on Feb. 01, 2013

    I gave Scapemaker a 4 instead of 5, but mainly I think I might not be the target audience for this book. I'm (a little) older and had dificulty relating to the characters. That being said, the story is well written and well thought out. It could use more description, for my taste, and at points came acrossed as jumbled. It did come together in the end.
  • Xander's Chance (#1, Damian Eternal) on March 27, 2013

    Lizzy Ford is a very talented author. I expect nothing less than amazing from her, and she always delivers. Xander is a perfect love story between imperfect paranormals. I love the theme of choices that runs throughout Xander's Chance. Lizzy Ford sticks tightly to the theme, until the very end. I was thrilled to get caught up with my old friends from War of Gods. A must read.
  • Being Human on April 01, 2013

    Patricia Lynne has written a good book about a very popular subject. It is a good story and is very well written. The character development is perfectly done and the passage of time and progression of the characters is astounding. It just never grabbed my attention and held on. I liked it, but I didn't love it.
  • Become on Feb. 19, 2014

    Become by Jillian Watts is a terrific book. I was unaware when I started that it is book one in a trilogy, so I felt it was a bit slow in the beginning. there are so many characters and so much to learn about the new lands. But by chapter 3, I was hooked. The author created an entirely new world co-existing in North America, and she did it extremely well. She didn't miss anything and I was left without questions and the surroundings and beliefs of the people. I was, of course, left with many questions for the future and cannot wait for book 2. Well done indeed.
  • Alien Species Intervention Books 1-3 on May 30, 2014

    Baby by J.K. Accinni is an amazing story of hideous acts repaired by true love, followed by more horrendous events leading to betrayal and vengeance. It portrays a nearly unbelievable world once Baby is rescued by Netty and unconditionally love by both Netty and Wil. There lives are forever changed by the greed and heartlessness of Robert and his crew. I cannot disclose more without spoilers, so let me just say that I was completely captured by this unusual and intriguing tale. A brilliant way to begin this series. Echo by J.K. Accinni is very well written. The horrible events in this book 2 of the species intervention #6609 series brings a better understanding of the womb and the Oolaha. I find it difficult to choose sides as the most evil of humans are exposed and destroyed. I am not certain where this story line is headed, but I am excited to continue the journey. Armageddon Cometh is the third episode in the Species Intervention Series by J.K. Accinni and it is terrific. It was gripping from the very first chapter. Armageddon is indeed coming. Echo and Abby must make plans, and everyone else must have faith. I love the characters in this series and appreciated the new additions. They will make some interesting adventures in future episodes. And it was so nice to catch a glimpse of Netty! All around, terrific.
  • Mirror Images Book 1: The Darkness of Man on Sep. 12, 2014

    The Darkness of Man by C. Michael Powers is terrific. The imagination that went into this story line is beyond my comprehension. I mean, who comes up with this stuff? So Powers takes a great idea and turns it into a terrific book. All of the characters are compelling, even the bad guys. The story line is gripping and creepy, in a good way. And, oh, the ending. Such promise, and so many questions. This is a great read and I recommend it to everyone. Just be careful what you say into the mirror.
  • Mirror Images Book 2: Sons of Man on Sep. 15, 2014

    Mirror Images Book 2: Sons of Man by C. Michael Powers is an exciting read. Couple Powers strong imagination with his astonishing descriptive abilities, and you have a five star win in this book. The story line takes some interesting turns, and the fight begins again between good and evil. The monsters in this book are well depicted, creating horrifying images for me, but the story line keeps it all on track. Book 2 is faster paced leading toward a cliff hanger ending. I cannot wait to see what happens in book 3!
  • Straight, No Chaser: A Short Story Bromance on Dec. 01, 2014
    (no rating)
    Straight, No Chaser: A Short Story Bromance by Kandi Steiner is a fun little read. If you have read Tag Chaser and Song Chaser you will understand how desperately Corbin and Tanner needed a quick bromance. I absolutely loved it, and laughed myself silly. #TeamTanner
