Smashwords book reviews by Sherry Ellis

  • Fearless on Aug. 17, 2012
    (no rating)
    Abby kills monsters that are created from children's imaginations. While on a monster-killing mission, she and her guide, a stuffed hippo named Tawa, save the life of a handsome fae named Demetrius. The chemistry between Abby and Demetrius is strong, but Abby needs to focus on her work. If she doesn't, lives will be lost. Fearless is a unique, fast-paced novella that combines paranormal romance with action-packed monster fighting. It's a book that is hard to put down. The characters are likeable, and the story is well-paced and imaginative. Fearless is a great book for readers ages thirteen and older.

    When teenager, Gail Dorjie, from Kansas loses her parents, she is sent to a Seattle boarding school. There she meets characters akin to the familiar Wizard of Oz characters. These characters work together to stop an evil plan, thereby earning smarts, courage, heart, and a home. The Emerald City is a creative YA paranormal fantasy that gives a refreshing look at a classic story. The characters act like believable teenagers, and it's interesting to watch their struggles. Even the touch of humor makes it an enjoyable read. If you enjoy paranormal fantasies, then this is a good book to read.
