This isn't the kind of genre I'd normally read, so I didn't really know what to expect. What I found was a suspenseful sci-fi thriller that packs in UFOs, espionage, twists and turns galore, history, and anticpation as to what mysterious things really are lurking at the bottom of the ocean, and who wants to cover it up.
It was well-written, and although some readers have said the description is too detailed, as a reader who wasn't aware of some of the technical details involved in this story, it actually helped me grasp the concept better.
If you're looking for a novel that is mysterious and thought-provoking, then look no further than Falling Star.
DATING MY VIBRATOR (and other true fiction)
on April 07, 2011
Suzanne Tyrpak is a natural story teller, and I was cracking up out loud quite a lot during some of the collection. At the same time, though, the stories are also quite sad, and they're a great insight into the dating game after her divorce. I recognized quite a few traits of the men she dates, and they're pretty scary!
Dating My Vibrator is a roller-coaster of emotions, and a bare-all (not literally!) book that women and (hopefully!) men can relate to. If you're looking for a fun read, you've got to check this out!

Sincer her father was convicted of murdering twenty years ago, Kadi Crowe has had a hard existence. She hasn't dared herself to feel emotion or love in the environment that she was thrust into through no fault of her own. When her father is released from prison, and another similar murder takes place, she sets about trying to prove his innocence.
Dain McNight has been festering with revenge ever since Kadi's father was convicted of his sister's murder. His only life centres around his work, with no time for personal relationships. Now that he's been released, he want's to give out his own death penalty! But when he meets Kadi on her crusade, he doesn't plan on his feelings for her. Now both of them have a second chance in life...
This was well-written and full of suspense. I felt myself rooting for both Kadi and Dain, who were damaged by uncontrollable events in their lives. The idea of having a second chance is something that we should all believe in!

First of all, when I read this, I wasn't aware of the "treatments" for hysteria given to women in the 19th Century, and it's pretty creepy and freaky to think this actually went on!
I'm not in to erotic romance really but I have to admit the writing sucked me in. It's very eloquently written and pretty powerful. But I was disappointed with the ending which happened too quickly and gave no real reason or explanation for it. I think the short story could've been expanded on to make for a more fulfilling ending.
I Wish I Would've
on Aug. 16, 2011
This novella is about the kidnap of a young girl by her Granddad as a sexual slave. It will really make you stop and think, and wonder what goes on behind closed doors. It's gritty, gripping, and will bring a tear to your eye, but I couldn't put it down. A gruesome subject matter, but is handled exceptionally well by the author.
Shades of Grey
on March 09, 2012
Fans of military stories will enjoy the first two in this collection. My personal preference was the third one, which reminded me of a Stephen King genre. They were all well-written and interesting, but I would've liked to have know why John was being held captive in the first story as that was never really explained.
