Smashwords book reviews by Madame Diotte

  • Priscilla the Great: The Kiss of Life (Book #2) on July 04, 2011

    Once again, a captivating plot and more insight into the loveable characters! My only complain is that I would have liked the novel to be a little longer, but all in all, this is a fantastic book! Looking forward to the sequel!
  • The Eyes that See - A Prelude to the Balancer Chronicles on July 15, 2011

    Truly an interesting and fast-paced urban fantasy novella! Despite the few typos, I quite enjoyed reading this and am looking forward to finding out more about the Balancers!
  • Legacy - Book One of the Balancer Chronicles on July 19, 2011

    The main thing that kept me from enjoying this story to its fullest was the fact that there were numerous spelling errors throughout the novel. However, despite that, I did enjoy the story. Some sections were a bit too slow and long-winded, but overall it was a pleasant read.
  • Love.com on Nov. 19, 2011

    Love.com’s exploration of online dating was both creative and thought-provoking. The dialogue, however, was often unnatural, and I lost interest in the book from time to time. After a while, the plot became more interesting and I was once again engaged. Overall, it was a pleasant read.
  • Most Likely on Nov. 23, 2011

    A truly moving story that easily kept me engaged. Becky's difficult life situations and how she reacted to them were believable and intriguing. The way Becky questioned her faith, those she loves, and herself made her feel like a well-rounded character. I am looking forward to reading more from this author!
  • Stray : Touchstone Part 1 on Jan. 02, 2012

    A thoroughly enjoyable novel, in a "I can't put this down until the end" way. A truly original and refreshing perspective, The characters, especially Cassandra, have a lot of depth and are suitably intriguing. I really felt for them and was moved almost to tears at one point. A truly amazing sci-fi/fantasy novel that I highly recommend!
  • Draykon on Jan. 24, 2012

    An interesting and enjoyable read. You can't help but feel for the shy Llandry, just like you can't help but root for Eva. I definitely liked the premise of the story and will be looking for the next in the series!
  • Hexult on Feb. 12, 2012

    An original premise, good character development, and lots of action make this a truly enjoyable read! You will love getting to know Aulf, Ingar, Jacob, and Elya in this unusual adventure! Great for teens and adults alike!
  • Human on April 29, 2012

    Despite the errors in sentence structure & spelling here and there, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The story was compelling, the characters intriguing. I think this novel would be especially popular with teens.
  • Wolf's-head, Rogues of Bindar Book I on May 21, 2012

    This novel has quite a slow start, as I only really became interested in the story about halfway through. However, from that point on, I was intrigued and wanted to know what would happen to Baus.
  • A Black Deeper Than Death (Miki Radicci Book 1) on Sep. 15, 2012

    I believe that this novel could use a bit more proofing, but I did enjoy the plot. Of course, it does get quite dark and there is a lot of profanity, but you can't help but want to read it to the end to discover if your initial suspicions were correct. I especially love how the writer maintains suspense all the way to the end.
