Smashwords book reviews by tanya young

  • Guardian of Honor on May 26, 2023

    I absolutely love this series. I originally read it in paperback years ago. I was so excited to see this available on Smashwords. Alexa and Bastien are an amazing couple.This book is a joy to read.
  • Sorceress of Faith on May 26, 2023

    Another successful story. I was so happy she was able to go home and come back. Her hamster is so cute. Also glad her brother gets a second chance. Can’t get enough of this series. Hope the next book comes out soon as it was probably my favorite in the series.
  • Hearts and Stones on May 26, 2023

    Enjoyed this group of stories very much. My first introduction to Robin’s Celta series was her book Heartmate. I have greatly looked forward to reading each new book. I like how we get to see some of how everything started for the Celta colony and the familiars as well as see more of the actual colonists including their familiars. Wonderful stories. Hope to see more of the Celta series here.
  • The Cyborg Next Door on May 26, 2023

    I love this book. Roxy and Chiron are so great together. I love how they worked together and didn’t there being different get in the way. Enjoyed see how most everyone pulled together despite the prejudice that they had been taught. The recognition of the Cyborgs as sentient people really highlights how people can overcome their prejudice if they choose. This is an amazing story that I didn’t want to end.
  • Heart of the Machine on May 26, 2023

    Billie and Medeus story was great. I very much enjoyed see these two come together. Again seeing everyone on the ship come together and making decisions shows such growth. I also enjoyed the ending of this book with the reunion that takes place and can’t wait to see what happens next. Another book I wasn’t ready to end.
  • Dragon Knights Anthology Volume 1 on May 26, 2023

    Enjoy reading this anthology. I read the first two books in paperback years ago and was thrilled to reread them. I’m a huge fan of shifter stories and love how these are written. The story is interesting and the way they tie into each other and lead into future stories but can be read alone and not be lost really speaks to me. While all the stories have a basic underlying theme they are each unique and interesting as well.
  • Dragon Knights Anthology Volume 2 on May 26, 2023

    Ice Dragon is probably my favorite of this series but I love each story on its own. The stories in this book bring even more people and beings into the underlying story while still making each book a stand alone complete story with main characters that draw you in and keep you reading to the end. Great books.
  • Dragon Knights Anthology Volume 3 on May 26, 2023

    Great stories. I love seeing each family come together. The part the dragons play in each story and their place in each family and lair. The stories remain interesting and the characters engaging.
  • Cat's Cradle on May 26, 2023

    This is an engaging and entertaining story. The way Elaine becomes involved with Cade and their relationship develops was enjoyable to read.
  • Hidden Talent on May 26, 2023

    This author is one of my favorites. Each book I have read has been enjoyable and this book is no exception. I enjoyed finding out Jeri’s history and very much enjoyed reading how Her and Micah’s relationship developed. The story was interesting and the development of the characters was well done. Looking forward to reading the other stories in this series.
  • Talent For Trouble on May 26, 2023

    Another great read. The story and characters are well written.
  • Shy Talent on May 26, 2023

    Another well written book. I very much enjoyed reading this book.
  • Warrior's Heart on May 26, 2023

    I enjoyed seeing Hal and Casey get together. Something about a guy falling for his best friends sister that I love. Interested in seeing what happens to the guys in Hal’s unit next. I find their abilities interesting. The story is well written and the characters are interesting. A great read.
  • Hara's Legacy on May 26, 2023

    This is one of the first books I read with a reverse harem. I enjoyed seeing how the story developed and the way the characters interacted with each other. It’s well worth the read. I look forward to reading the rest of the books.
  • Choosing Riley: Sarafin Warriors Book 1 on May 26, 2023

    I love Riley St Claire she is a full figured woman who is confident in herself and has a kick a.. sense of humor. That being said Vox cracks me up. In the beginning he just can’t see to win with Riley but he is persistent. The end of the story is great. This is one of my favorite books by this author and I have reread it many times.

  • Omega Run on June 03, 2023

    I love this story. The characters were fun to read. I really hope this is continued. I would love to see what another Omega turns out like. Also curious if the soul will come from earth or somewhere else. How Lyra meet and reacted to each mate was great. I think her meeting with Kresso was my favorite though. Really fun read. Thanks for a great story
  • Deadly Star on June 05, 2023

    Was so excited to see another story in this series. I love Nova and Lily. Both are strong and resilient in their individual ways. Heboren and Nebel fit with Nova and Lily. This was a fun read. I hope to read more in this series.
  • Blood Binding on June 05, 2023

    So enjoyed this story. Ally and Cassian are a fun couple. I love that Cassian let Ally explore her life before making his presence known. I had to laugh when he said she had claimed him without his consent. Really liked meeting her sister. A very good story with interesting characters. Hope to see more of this series.

  • Damaged Control on June 05, 2023

    I think this is my favorite story in this series. I love how stubborn and strong Athena is. The way she handles her new place in life shows how strong her character is. Etska being the one to come to her assistance when she was trying to avoid him made me smile. Such an enjoyable read.
