Smashwords book reviews by Kevis Hendrickson

  • Entangled (formerly known as Spellbound) on April 12, 2010

    Spellbound by Jaimey Grant is a captivating regency romance novel that sweeps the reader up into a tale of love and deception. This compelling drama involves a young actress named Raven who accepts a job to play the role of a rich duke's fiancée, all the while knowing that if her real identity is uncovered she will be executed. The duke's goal is to use Raven to assuage his family's relentless pursuit to see him wed to a wealthy heiress. At first, Raven takes to her role with cunning efficiency. But trouble starts to brew when she finds herself passionately falling in love with the duke--an event which will send her life spiraling out of control and tumbling towards disaster. What I most admire about this novel is Grant's ability to bring her wonderful characters to life with an undeniable wit and pomp. The prose is fluid and the dialogue accurately conveyed, fully immersing the reader in the periodic English setting. Grant truly understands her genre and flourishes with every word she writes. For certain, I will seek out more books from this author fully anticipating another richly told romance teeming with charming characters and an involving plot.
  • Blood and Bronze on April 08, 2011

    Blood and Bronze by David J. Guyton is the second installment of the Legend of Reason Series. Like its predecessor Mighty Hammer Down, Blood and Bronze is as much a literary venture into the realm of philosophy and intellectualism as it is a fantasy adventure ripe with epic storytelling. What makes this series unique among a vast sea of fantasy novels is that Guyton's characters are not your run-of-the-mill characters who slavishly serve the plot. Rather, they challenge the reader to not only share their adventures, but to also inquire into some of the deeper mysteries of life. Blood and Bronze picks up where Mighty Hammer Down left off. The capital city of Brinn has been left in ruins after being destroyed by an invading army. Rommus Tirinius, now reborn as the new god of war, is determined to save his people from the forces conspiring to destroy them. His mortal enemy Uritis, through subterfuge and murder, has now become emperor of Medora and in the guise of the Red Mage plots to transform Medora into his own twisted version of Utopia. Even as Rommus and his allies, the beautiful, but fierce Alana Irith, the mysterious, but Immortal warrior Vohlhemoneer, and his father, the mighty Tannis, seeks to enlist the aid of those who wish to defend Medora, strange beings from another world appear to threaten the land with a dark and terrible army. It is up to Rommus and his friends to stop the enemy, all the while knowing that every action they take may result in bringing about the destruction of the very fabric of time. As much as I enjoyed reading Mighty Hammer Down, Blood and Bronze is by far the superior tale. Guyton flexes his highly polished writing skills to great effect. The characters are more engrossing than ever and scenes are expertly crafted guiding readers effortlessly through the intense action and unfolding plot. The stakes are much higher this time for our heroes and the tension only grows with every page. Some readers may take issue with the philosophy presented in these books. But for the open-minded reader who loves to be challenged, The Legend of Reason series offers up a compelling adventure. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a vigorously told fantasy tale that challenges readers to look beyond the pale surface of their own lives, but rather to peer into the depths of the souls of heroes and villains who reflect our own reality. 4 ½ Stars
  • Soldier Evolution Revolutionary Girl on Oct. 19, 2011

    I found this novella to be a surprisingly good read. Why do I say surprising? Because it's obvious this book was originally conceived as a script, rather than a work of fiction. Simply put, this story begs to be drawn or animated! On that front it succeeds amiably. I'm familiar with Manga and Japanese animation and recognized the established conventions of the format in this story. If Sailor Moon and Magic Knight Rayearth series had an offspring, this would be it. Within the pages of Soldier Evolution Revolutionary Girl one could find many of the elements of those series contained within, from the Mokona-like Kamyu to the Sailor-Moon inspired names of the heroes: Soldier Evolution, Soldier Starlight, Soldier Firestar, etc. The Good: The battle scenes were exciting and the action vividly described. This story was more visual than a lot of the science fiction and fantasy novels I've read. An impressive feat considering the sheer scope and variety of the characters' powers or enemies. Several times in the course of reading this story, I had to stop to marvel at how creative much of the content was. The Bad: While I was impressed with the sheer imagination of the author, I was disappointed with some aspects of the story. The inevitable shortcoming of producing a work of fiction that is in essence a script left it in unenviable territory. On one hand, this story would make for a stunning Manga comic strip. On the other, it depends too heavily on the missing visuals to complete the experience. The author's attempt to describe the characters' looks ad naseum, however admirable, was self-defeating. The more details the story gave about the characters, the more I wanted to see them and not read about the color of their hair or what kind of halter top or high heel boots they were wearing. The constant information dumping became tedious after a while and I started to simply tune out. With that said, the author does have a good story to tell, even if it is disjointed at times. The characters are young and vibrant and the plot is epic. There are some missteps. But this fun story will appeal to younger readers, especially fans of Japanese animation and Manga comics. 3 Stars
  • Idol Siren on Nov. 08, 2011

    This is the second book I have read from Ms. Fulton, the other being Soldier Evolution Revolutionary Girl. It was clear to me from the outset of the story, that this author is very talented and has grown tremendously as a writer since the last book. She demonstrates a much stronger command of the language without sacrificing her unique voice. One thing that endears me to the author's style is her ability to draw a reader into her world using subtle references to pop culture. She's also quite adept at using description without being overbearing. It's a cozy style that is as welcoming as it is charming. After being initially reluctant to read Idol Siren due to the teenie-bop cover, I was please to find that there is a story with a heart here. The tale of a young woman trying to find her place in the world after suffering a horrible tragedy was both refreshing and inspiring. With all the gritty stories out there, it's always great to read an uplifting story. It's easy to relate to the Alicia's struggles and her desire to make her mark in the world on her own terms. She's a universal character that will appeal to anyone who ever found it difficult for themselves to fit in. One thing that caught my notice were the beautiful lyrics of the original songs featured in this book. I was swept up in the evocative language which captured the essence of Alicia's persona. Two books in and I am already a fan of this author . The future looks very bright for Ms. Fulton and her works of fiction. I recommend this story to anyone who loves an uplifting reading or is looking for a tale that would inspire them to reach their own heights. 3.9 stars.
  • Whores: not intended to be a factual account of the gender war on Jan. 10, 2013

    Whores by Nicolas Wilson is a gritty exploration of a not too distant future where the Battle of the Sexes has gone totally wrong. Wilson paints a bleak future where women have lost their rights and are treated by society as second-class citizens. A series of interconnected events are related, revealing the harrowing plight of a small, but determined group of women and men who fight to overcome the oppression of women and the extreme lengths the government goes to put a stop to them. Aside from the solid writing, what impressed me most was how convincingly the author portrayed this world. It’s hard not to be moved by the personal accounts of the women in the story who suffer horrible atrocities in its telling. There is one scene in particular that gives me the chills every time I think about it. Even more noteworthy is how real this all seems, as if it would only take a little nudging for our own society to mirror the one in this book. In some ways, it already does. I enjoyed the journey with the characters and found many of the best moments to be when they shared their personal histories. My only complaint is that there was a bit of proselytizing in the book that grew tiresome after a while. Much of the language is coarse, reflecting the gritty atmosphere. But overall, this is a highly polished and well-presented tale with intriguing characters. I would definitely recommend this story to anyone who ever wondered what the world would be like if society's discrimination against women went into overdrive.
