  • The Keeping on Aug. 08, 2012

    Having read The Mating, I wasn't sure about a book that featured Ryne as a major character but Nicky successfully pulled it off. Certainly, Ryne is rough around the edges, obnoxious and full of attitude but I can say, with all honesty, that Nicky Charles put just the right amount of seasoning in how she has molded and crafted Ryne --and Mel. Excellent dose of suspense and wow on the spice. Nicky knows how to spice up a story without going overboard! Excellent job overall!

    Cute story; fun for a quick read! As the owner of 6 cats (3 yellow and 3 black), I can see my youngest black cat (Vamp) in the role of Black Coal! Vamp is avenger against all things canine, as Campbell's Black Coal (aka Kiwi) is his family's avenger --they just don't realize it.

    Not bad for a short short. Despite minor flaws, the author succeeds in depicting an interesting tale of what I certainly hope never manifests with my ex!
