Smashwords book reviews by Rhonda Hopkins

  • Demon Trackers: The Anointed on Nov. 01, 2011

    Although a little on the short side, I loved this book. It was crammed full of action and male bonding between brothers and their father. Jake and Cal reminded me of a younger Sam and Dean but different in their own ways, too. I didn't notice any problems with grammar, spelling, etc. It seems to have been well edited. I've found a new author to read and can't wait to delve into the second book of this series.
  • Rising Above (Still Waters Part Two) on Nov. 08, 2012
    (no rating)
    Full disclosure: I have a short story in TALES FROM THE MIST where Stacey Joy Netzel's Beneath Still Waters (book one) is published. While I think all the stories are great, BSW was my favorite in the anthology. And RISING ABOVE is just as good. It's well written, no problems with editing or formatting. RA is a fast-paced, suspenseful, paranormal novella. Even the secondary characters are well developed. Ms. Netzel's writing makes you feel the relationship between Ryan and Ali spanning the ages and their past lives. The tension is enough to keep you on the edge of your seat and turning the pages. It's a satisfying read and I highly recommend it.

  • Hanna, Hanna, One-and-Two on April 09, 2014

    Ms. Shafer has proven that she's a versatile author. I love her Shrilugh series and found I enjoyed this book just as much. She creates vivid characters - good and bad - that you feel like you know. Hanna is such a great character and I easily found myself rooting for her and her friends. Ms Shafer is a very talented writer and makes the action and emotions come alive. The world building was excellent. The book was well-written, and well-edited. A first rate read!
