Smashwords book reviews by Solitaire Parke

  • Empire (In Her Name, Book 4) on April 17, 2012

    In Her Name: Empire by Michael R. Hicks was a real treat! I gobbled it up in two sittings and read until my eyes hurt. I was captured by the story within the first three pages and felt the struggle of the Protagonist as if it was my own. When I got to the end, I discovered I was angry. Angry that I hadn't purchased the next two books! It doesn't take rocket science to know what I'm going to read next. Great work Mr Hicks!!
  • The Gateway (An Epic Fantasy Novella) on April 17, 2012

    The "Gateway" by Glen G. Thater started off at a run and never slowed down! The action is intense and reads in a similar fashion to the Conan books. I was impressed with the author's fluid writing style and am going to purchase the rest of the series. Great book!!
  • Something's Coming on July 23, 2012

    "Something's Coming" by Lisa M. Schuch is the story of two sisters, witches who try to live low profile lives, but are continually drawn into high profile situations. The book does a good job at depicting how difficult it can be to fit in, especially under extraordinary circumstances. A love triangle destined to fail ultimately forces the sisters to face off to betrayal, lust, and death. The tale is tragic, but finds a way to close with a happy ending. "Something's Coming" was fast paced with interesting characters.
