Smashwords book reviews by Shawn Pfister

  • The Bigg Man on July 25, 2011

    a fun, action-packed western adventure, not set in the old west, but in the tiny international hub of Sault Ste. Marie, MI. The history of the town and the nation are exquisitely detailed in this short work of fiction.
  • The Believer on July 25, 2011

    A vampire story unlike any I have read before. A great read for anybody looking for something refreshing, and perhaps a little scary.
  • Scary Mary on Nov. 16, 2011

    Definitely the best free book I've read in a long time. The characters were well-written and well-rounded. I could really identify with Mary and, as an adult, want to smack her guidance counselor. A definite must read for young adults wanting something different. I am only giving it a 4/5 due to a few minor grammatical problems, not enough to detract from the enjoyment of the story, but the occasional "she" does take some figuring out as to who it refers.
  • Stalking Shadows on Dec. 07, 2011

    Well written with believable characters...if you can believe in a girl who talks to the dead. A good read for adults, as well as teens. It was well worth the $0.99. I would gladly pay four times that. Some minor grammer problems, otherwise it would get a full five stars. Anxiously awaiting book 3.
  • Broken Spirits on Sep. 24, 2013

    This one started out a little slow, but picked up and I soon found that I couldn't put it down. I found the addition of boyfriend problems and her friendship with Rachel getting tested added a nice layer of real teen issues to Mary's already messed up life. This was definitely a fun read and it's nice to see that this series isn't diminishing in quality.
  • Preppy Little Liars on Sep. 24, 2013

    I loved the characters and the setting, everything felt very real. I loved Meg's obsession with Kitty being the person behind Margaret's fall that was so strong she missed some very obvious things going on around her. The book could have done with a little more editing, there was the occasional grammatical hiccup, but the story was good enough to overlook them. If there is a sequel, I will most likely be picking it up.
  • The Snorkel-Bottom-Wrinkle-Puff on Sep. 24, 2013

    Very cute and very short. Some grammar errors made it difficult to read at times, but overall it was a very fun read.
  • Strange Girl on Dec. 29, 2014

    S. A. Hunter's Scary Mary series is still running strong. The characters are still alive and wonderful, the stories still fresh and imaginative. I hope she can keep it up forever. This is another wonderful book. It felt shorter than the others. I'm not sure if it is shorter, or I just got so into it that I read it quicker. Old characters return and new ones join the cast, including some of Mary's relatives. It looks to be an interesting family. The story takes Mary out of school and on location at an actual haunted house. It gives usual antagonist, Vicky, most of the book off , I assume to recharge her B**** powers to be extra strong in book five. I really can't wait for book 5! The only reason this isn't getting five stars is because of the editing. I subscribe to her newsletter and know that she went without outside editing to get it out on time. The book shows it (my favorite is some lines that are actually crossed out!). This is a great book, but if you're a stickler for grammar, wait until the edited version comes out. There are a few areas that I had to reread to figure out what was meant due to missing words and odd phrasing.
  • The 13th: Frozen Destiny on April 30, 2015

    This was probably not the book to start this series with. It was somewhat confusing as the story changes characters, at first feeling like two separate stories, but it never got so weird that I set it down. Reading to the end, the confusion is explained, why characters are added and relationships changed from the opening, so things do make sense in the end. There was soem foreshadowing, but I seemed to have missed a good portion of it until I got further into the story. I did enjoy it and look forward to learning more about these characters in other books, so I do recommend it, just not as the first read in the series.
