Victoria Zigler

Biography

My name is Victoria, but most of my friends and family call me Tori. Feel free to do the same.

Born in the shadow of the black mountains in Wales, I now live by the sea in the south-east of England with my husband, Kelly, a pair of chinchillas named Maizie and Mollie, a pair of rats named Skye and Star, a gerbil named Baggins, and two degus whose names are Jacob and Joshua.

Having battled with glaucoma since birth, I now find myself completely blind.  But I didn't let that stop me from chasing the dream I've had since I was a young child: the dream of being a published author.  I've loved to read and write since I learned how, and always wanted to get my work published.  Finally, in 2012, I made that dream come true by self-publishing eBooks via Smashwords. Three years later, I began using CreateSpace to make my books available in print.  So now I'm a published author of children's fiction, as well as a couple of poetry collections; all of which are available in multiple eBook formats, and as paperback books.

Reading and writing remain my favourite things to do, apart from spending time with my husband, and our rodent gang, of course. I also enjoy doing crafts (such as card making and knitting). Plus, I dabble in things like roleplaying games (such as Dungeons And Dragons) and figure games (such as BattleTech and Monsterpocalypse) from time to time, and enjoy watching movies and TV shows as well as listening to music. On top of that, I have an interest in history, especially stone age and Egyptian history, and in space exploration. I also love almost anything to do with animals and nature. I have to say "almost" because I'm not too keen on spiders and creepy crawly things, though can pretend they don't exist if they don't come too close to me. My favourite animals are cats, dogs, rodents and horses, though I generally get all soppy over just about any four-legged animal; especially young ones. That love of animals was a huge factor in my choice to become a vegetarian, as it's hard to enjoy a meal when you feel sorry for it.

Personality wise I’d describe myself as a combination of Hermione and Luna from the Harry Potter books; Hermione’s thirst for knowledge and love of books, combined with Luna’s wandering mind and alternative way of looking at the world. A couple of people have agreed with that description of me, so I feel I'm justified in using it.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
Having older brothers meant I learned to read and write really young in order to do "homework" like they were doing, which means I've been able to read and write - at least at a basic level - since I was three years old. I fell in love with the written word from the start and started trying to write stories of my own soon after learning to read those by others. By the time I was seven years old I was already writing well enough that my stories were being entered in to contests; I still have the medal I won in one such contest.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I mostly grew up in the shadow of the Black Mountains in South Wales in the United Kingdom. I don't know how it's influenced my writing though. I mean, every experience you have in life influences your writing to a certain extent, but I think it's impossible to tell which one has influenced it in which way without somehow managing to enter an alternate universe in which that specific event didn't happen and doing a comparison.

Smashwords book reviews by Victoria Zigler

  • Amputeddy Goes Back to School on May 01, 2012

    What a sweet little book; and a great tool to start discussions about things like amputation, or being "different" in some way.
  • The Silver Collar on May 02, 2012

    A great story; I love the new twist it brings to the stories of werewolves.
  • Saucerers and Gondoliers on May 31, 2012

    An unusual, amusing, and entertaining read. I wouldn't class it as one of my favourites, but I would read it again.
  • Sister Ships and Alastair on June 20, 2012
    (no rating)
    I picked up this book because I'd enjoyed the first. I'm glad I did; it was another unusual, amusing and entertaining read!
  • There Ain't Gonna Be No World War Three on June 26, 2012

    Having read the two books that come before this one in the series, I eagerly grabbed this one when I saw it had been released. I'm glad I did and was not disappointed; it was another entertaining and unique read!
  • Amputeddy Meets Nubby Bear on June 30, 2012

    A sweet and well written book; just as good as the first in the series!
  • Daisy The Sheep on July 02, 2012

    This was a really cute story. It seemed to change from past to present tense and back again though, which made it confusing as to whether it was a "this happened before" or "this is happening now" story. Like I said, it's really cute though.
  • Bed Trolls on July 02, 2012

    This had great potential, but it felt like the introduction to a story rather than a story. Perhaps it would have been better if something was to happen after the part that's already written here? Like someone attempting to catch a bed troll with amusing consequences or something....
  • The Squirrels of Summer on July 02, 2012

    This was a lovely little story; well written, really cute, and with a great lesson atatched to it!
  • Obee's Nutty Adventure on July 02, 2012

    This is an adorable book, with a great lesson; perfect for small children, and those of us who haven't grown up yet!
  • The Jungle Mess on July 04, 2012

    What a cute story!
  • Seasons of the Heart - Summer on July 06, 2012

    This is an enjoyable story, which reads well and captures and holds your attention. It's a story you can easily pick up and read even if you don't have a long time to read in, since it's short enough; it didn't take me long to read anyway. Isn't that a sign of a good story? One that doesn't take long to read because you get so in to it? I think it is!
  • Where There is Light, There is Understanding on July 11, 2012

    This is a remarkable story, with an important lesson to teach. I highly recommend it.
  • A Christmas Miracle on July 12, 2012

    This was a pretty good story, though perhaps the author could have taken a bit more time on character development.
  • The Christmas Challenge on July 12, 2012

    While it's a sweet concept, I felt this was more a flashback that belongs in a novel than an actual story in its own right. It's amusing, but where's the conflict? Where's the thing that needs to be over-come? Where's the evidence that what happened in the story changed things for the main character? It needs something more, I think.
  • Lost Christmas on July 12, 2012

    This was a pretty good little story; worth reading in my opinion!
  • Bogamus the Troll on July 18, 2012

    This was a really amusing and entertaining story; I loved it!
  • Family and Pets - A collection of poems on July 19, 2012

    This is a great collection of poems; some funny, some sweet and a bit emotional, but all of them enjoyable to read.
  • Amputeddy Helps a Friend on July 24, 2012

    A sweet little book, which can serve as a great tool to get discussions going with children - and perhaps also adults - about amputation.
  • Amy and the Unicorn on July 24, 2012

    I'm not sure why this is being called a short story; it's more like a short novel. But that's got nothing to do with why I only give it 3 stars. The simple fact is, it would be a really good book if it was properly edited. There are so many places where words are missing from sentences so they bearly make sense (and sometimes only do because you can figure it out from what comes next) that I lost count, which is very distracting and makes it difficult to enjoy a story. Also, I think there were too many long-winded flashbacks. Flashbacks are great, but I felt the first half of the book at least had more flashbacks than story progression; you don't need more than the most important information with flashbacks, and only need to be that detailed if someone is really going back in time to live through it. Like I said though, it is a pretty good book, and could be a really good one with proper editing.
  • The Old Woman in the Shoe Moves, Storybook One on July 25, 2012

    Really cute book!
  • Zeus on July 25, 2012

    An entertaining and amusing story.
  • A Stalker's Game (Short Story) on Aug. 19, 2012

    This was an absolutely fantastic read, even for someone like me who hasn't read Life Descending!
  • Circe's Pool on Aug. 19, 2012

    A really good story, with a great lesson to teach!
  • Awakening on Aug. 29, 2012

    I don't usually read this kind of book, but I'm a firm believer in not dismissing a book just because it's a little outside of the genre you usually read, and I know a couple of people who enjoy this author so thought I'd check this book out. Anyway, I was actually surprised at how much I enjoyed the book. I don't think Kitty Thomas will make it in to one of my favourite authors, but this book was a pleasurable read.
  • A Gift of Flowers on Sep. 02, 2012

    This is a beautiful and touching story!
  • Tirnahiolaire on Sep. 16, 2012

    This book is a bit of a slow starter, but once you get in to it it gets better, becoming an amusing and action filled book, which I personally found both enjoyable and entertaining.
  • This 'N That - A Poetry Collection on Oct. 12, 2012

    This is an unusual collection of poems, some of which may be difficult for people to read without becoming quite emotional. "Cryin' Baby" especially is a very emotional poem. Some of the poems - such as "Fibro" and "Depression" - give some useful insight as to what it's like for sufferers, and could prove useful reading for those who know someone who suffers with either condition.
  • Inspirational Poetry on Oct. 12, 2012

    This is a sweet and emotional collection of poems, some of which will have you reaching for a tissue. I especially enjoyed the one called "Little Buddha Man" which I think is a truely beautiful piece of writing.
  • Time Tells Tales - Tale one - Dead In A Ditch on Oct. 12, 2012

    This is a well written book, which immediately awakens your curiosity about Alfred and how he came to be in the ditch where he was. From the first I was curious about Alfred and his story, and eagerly devoured each new sentence until the end. I now find myself eagerly awaiting the second part of the series, and desperate to learn what happens next.
  • Troll on Oct. 17, 2012

    This is a well written and fantastic story, with excellent worldbuilding and well rounded characters. It's a perfect example of the pain and suffering that can come from the fear based predjudices people are so often known for.
  • Some Families on Oct. 20, 2012

    This was a cute little book, with a wonderful message.
  • Hear No Evil: A Short Story on Oct. 22, 2012

    This was an interesting and enjoyable story, but I was a bit disappointed with the ending as it felt a bit too abrupt.
  • Messy Make-Believe on Oct. 23, 2012

    This is an unusual and imaginative story, with a sweet ending. It's well written, and an enjoyable read.
  • The Betrayals of Grim's Peak on Nov. 05, 2012

    I've read some great books recently, but this one has to be right up at the top of the list of the ones I've enjoyed most. It's very well written, extremely imaginative, and captures your attention from the start, making you eager to read on and learn what will happen next. The characters are well rounded, and the worldbuilding is excellent, making it easy to imagine you're right there in Grim's Peak with Augie as he learns about the new world he's found himself in and attempts to survive.
  • Perth & Bo 3: Little Goldenhood on Nov. 05, 2012

    This is a cute collection of stories, with great lessons.
  • Perth & Bo 2: The Flipping Unicorn on Nov. 05, 2012

    This is an entertaining book with good lessons to teach.
  • Perth & Bo 1: The Goats and the Troll on Nov. 05, 2012

    An amusing and enjoyable book.
  • Perth & Bo 4: The Kettle of Floods on Nov. 05, 2012

    Another excellent little book.
  • Perth & Bo 6: Seven Attack Parrots on Nov. 06, 2012

    Another excellent book, with a wonderful lesson behind the stories in it.
  • Perth & Bo 5: The Ghost King's Gold on Nov. 06, 2012

    This is another cute and wonderful little book.
  • The Old Woman in the Shoe, Storybook Two on Nov. 22, 2012

    Cute book.
  • The Word Dealer on Nov. 22, 2012

    This was an interesting and unusual story.
  • Ever Shade (A Dark Faerie Tale #1) on Dec. 08, 2012

    This is a fantastic story, which I enjoyed reading. The characters are well rounded, the world building is excellent, and the plot is both well developed and imaginative. It's just a shame this had to be another book spoiled by poor editing. However, despite that I found it to be an enjoyable read, and would recommend it to lovers of YA Fantasy.
  • KIndred(Night School Vampire Hunter Trilogy) Novella#2 on Dec. 21, 2012

    I read the first book in this series and loved it, so when I got my hands on a copy of the sequel I was very eager to read it. I was not disappointed. It was as enjoyable a read as the first, with well rounded characters, and a plot that keeps you guessing.
  • Attack of the Sugar Plum Fairies on Dec. 22, 2012

    Loved it! It's short and sweet, very imaginative, and extremely entertaining!
  • Yule Quest on Dec. 23, 2012

    This book had potential, but it could have been better. Everything happened much too easily; no failed attempts, no moments of tension where you're not sure if they'll make it... It shouldn't have been that easy! Also, curse words were used too freely for a book with no adult content rating (admittedly only really near the start when Andrew was drunk, but that still doesn't make it right... A book with words like the "F" word in it should have a warning).
  • A Snowman for Christmas on Dec. 24, 2012

    This is a delightful little story!
  • Why Santa Shared His Soul on Dec. 25, 2012

    I loved this story! It's beautiful and touching; an excellent read!
  • Santa's Gift on Dec. 25, 2012

    The story is touching and entertaining, with a beautiful message behind it. However, there are some glaringly obvious grammatical errors which prevent me from giving this book the rating it would otherwise deserve.
  • Santa's Ninja Elves on Dec. 28, 2012

    Very creative stories; pretty good!
  • Santa's Claws on Dec. 28, 2012

    This is a very entertaining and imaginative collection of stories. As the author states though, they may be too disturbing for many children, especially the younger ones.
  • Mother Maiden Crone on Dec. 28, 2012

    This is an enjoyable and touching story; a perfect example of what the holidays are really about!
  • Destination Alpha Four on Dec. 28, 2012

    This is an entertaining and action filled story; a great read!
  • Zachary Zombie and the Lost Boy on Jan. 21, 2013

    This is a very entertaining and enjoyable story. Zachary is the best Zombie you could ever hope to meet! If you have a weak stomach I advise against reading this while snacking though.
  • Paying Piper (or “What Happened in Hamelin Town”) on Jan. 22, 2013

    An excellent and well written take on the classic story. A very enjoyable read!
  • Masro Fhin: Homecoming on Jan. 23, 2013

    This was a pretty good read, though not as good as the other books I've read by this author. Still worth taking the time to read though.
  • The Hare and The Tortoise - A modern fable on Jan. 30, 2013

    This is a very sweet story, with excellent lessons to teach. I hope to read more from this author very soon, and hope his imagination stays with him as he grows!
  • The Medusa on Jan. 30, 2013

    A pretty good story, though not quite as exciting as I expected it to be from the description.
  • The Fallen Prince That Never Was on Jan. 31, 2013

    This is an entertaining and imaginative read, which is full of exciting action. The plot is very creative and full of so many twists and turns that you'll find it impossible to guess what's coming next. I make it a policy, however, to never rate a story requiring a lot of editing higher than 4 stars, and therefore feel I can not give this the full 5 star rating it would otherwise deserve. The thing is, even when you yourself have a valid reason for struggling with spellings and such, there's no reason why another person can't be called upon to help with the editing phase of the book. I mean, I know from personal experience that disabilities - be they mild or severe - can make things difficult, but I also know from experience that there are plenty of people who can be found to lend a hand when called upon to do so.
  • Pacifier 6 - The Shadows Within on Feb. 20, 2013

    This is a well written story, and I love the angle the author has taken with it. It's refreshing to see zombies being cast in a different light other than as monsters with no souls or feelings other than hunger for flesh and brains.
  • Gathering Clouds... on Feb. 21, 2013

    This is a well-written book, which drew my attention from the start and held it throughout. The characters are well rounded and the descriptions are fantastic. A pleasant combination of action scenes and slower scenes of less activity keep the plot flowing smoothly, and there's just enough scientific information to make it clear you're reading a sci-fi novel without you feeling like you're being bombarded with facts from a textbook. I would highly recommend this book to all fans of science fiction novels, or those looking to try out the genre.
  • Pink Water on Feb. 21, 2013

    Like with the first book in the series, this was a well written and enjoyable read, which I would recommend to anyone who enjoys reading science fiction novels. The plot is rivetting, and the characters are well rounded. Plus, the author has spread enough scientific knowledge throughout the book to make it obvious you're reading a sci-fi novel, but without bombarding you with so much information that it distracts from the story; a balance which can be tricky to achieve.
  • Zoey Zimmerman and the Zombie Pigeon on March 04, 2013

    I love the different take on the zombie stories you so often hear... Got to love the idea of zombie pigeons! The book was a great read in general actually, and made me chuckle more than once.
  • Fire Country on March 14, 2013

    A very well written story, with excellent world building and character creation.
  • CRYO: Rise of the Immortals on March 16, 2013

    This is an excellent and well written book. the world building is done so well you can almost imagine it could be a true story of future events, and the characters are believable.
  • Time Tells Tales - Tale Two - Love, Loss, Lust and Lies on March 21, 2013

    This is a well written, emotional and touching story. Catherine's confusion and pain is clearly in evidence throughout her diary entries, making it easy to sympathize with her - especially if you've read Alfred's tale and heard his side of the story.
  • Jake on March 25, 2013

    This was a pretty good book. The character creation is done well, and the plot moves at a reasonable pace, though some may find the start of the book to be a little slow. A small warning though: some of the contents of this book may not be suitable for all who fall in to the young adult audience (especially those at the lower end of the age group).
  • Werewolf Winter - A Short Story on March 28, 2013

    This was a pretty good read.
  • Outgrowth of the Brain on March 28, 2013

    This is a well written short story, which makes an excellent addition to the Cloud Brothers' story.
  • Ice Country on April 05, 2013

    This is another excellent book from a fantastic author, and a wonderful addition to the Country Saga. It's very well written, with great world building and well-rounded characters.
  • Life Descending (The Cry of Havoc, Book 1) on April 12, 2013

    This is a pretty good story; very creative. It could use a lot of editing though, since some parts are worded in a way that makes their meaning slightly confusing, and grammatical errors are present throughout.
  • Blood Lust (Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy: Preternaturals Book 1) on April 12, 2013

    A great start to the series
  • Save My Soul (Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy: Preternaturals Book 2) on April 12, 2013

    An excellent read, and a great addition to the series.
  • Ever Fire (A Dark Faerie Tale #2) on April 14, 2013

    This book is a very good read; I loved this book, and am loving the series in general. Shame the book could use some editing, which means I can't give it the full 5 stars it would otherwise deserve, as I make it a point not to give the full 5 stars to books that need a lot of editing.
  • Ever Winter (A Dark Faerie Tale #3) on April 14, 2013

    This is a great book, and an excellent addition to the series. Shame the editing issues spoil it so that I can only give it four stars rather than the five it would otherwise deserve.
  • Evangeline (A Dark Faerie Tale Series Companion Book 2) on April 14, 2013

    An excellent introduction to the series.
  • Nikki Powergloves- A Hero is Born on April 24, 2013

    An excellent start to the series!
  • Nikki Powergloves and the Power Council on April 24, 2013

    A fantastic second book in an enjoyable series.
  • Nikki Powergloves and the Power Trappers on April 24, 2013

    An enjoyable third installment for the series.
  • Nikki Powergloves and the Great Adventure on April 24, 2013

    Another fantastic addition to the Nikki Powergloves series!
  • Obees' Nutty Choice on May 31, 2013

    A fantastic little story with a wonderful lesson!
  • The Little Fish That Got Into Trouble on May 31, 2013

    Very cute little story.
  • Water & Storm Country on June 08, 2013

    I've been eagerly awaiting the publication of this book, and am pleased to report that it was worth the wait! Like the other books in this series - as well as its sister series "The Dwellers Saga" - this is a well written and enjoyable book, with well rounded characters and fantastic world building, as well as a plot that moves at just the right speed; fast enough to keep your interest, but not so fast you can't keep track of events. I highly recommend this book, as well as the others in both the Country and Dwellers sagas!
  • Time Tells Tales - Tale Three - Theresa's Tale on July 09, 2013

    The rating I've given this book is more a reflection on my feelings towards the subject matter than a reflection on the author's writing. The writing is very good, apart from a few small typos, but I found the subject matter difficult to read. It's a personal matter and nothing to do with the author's writing abilities, but I can't give a book dealing with a subject I find disturbing the full five stars.
  • The Cat That Didn't Know How to Purr on July 09, 2013

    Awww... Cute!
  • The Cat That Was Learning How to Purr on July 09, 2013

    Cute story!
  • The Cat That Finally Learned How to Purr? on July 09, 2013

    A cute story, and a very sweet ending!
  • Time Tells Tales - Tale Four - Jim's Tale on Sep. 02, 2013

    This is a touching story, which is a lovely addition to the series.
  • Zachary Zombie and the Wicked Worm on Sep. 02, 2013

    This is an entertaining and enjoyable read.
  • Computers Don't Wear Pink Pyjamas on Sep. 06, 2013

    This is an entertaining story; worth the read.
  • The Four Wotsits of the Doodad on Sep. 06, 2013

    This is a very entertaining read.
  • My Baby Sister's a Zombie on Sep. 08, 2013

    Very cute and amusing; loved it!
  • Inside Evil on Sep. 13, 2013

    This is a bit of a strange story, but a really good one; an enjoyable read. It has a bit of a slow start, but when it picks up will capture your interest and keep it until the end.
  • The Tower of Souls on Sep. 23, 2013

    This is another strange but enjoyable read. It's a fantastic sequel to "inside evil" and well worth the read!
  • Spirits of the Middlelands on Sep. 23, 2013

    This is another great addition to the series; just as strange as the first two books in the series, but also just as enjoyable!
  • Ever Wrath (A Dark Faerie Tale #4) on Oct. 23, 2013

    This is a fantastic book, which is a wonderful addition to the series.
  • The Professor's Conundrum on Oct. 30, 2013

    This is an interesting and quite thought provoking book, which I'm sure many fans of science fiction stories will enjoy reading.
  • Litter Thugs on Oct. 30, 2013

    This isn't my favourite of the books I've read so far by this author, but it is a well written book, as well as being an entertaining read.
  • White Noise on Nov. 17, 2013

    This is an interesting addition to the series; a pretty good read.
  • Gypsy Spell on Nov. 17, 2013

    This is a slightly weird though amusing and fun addition to the series; the ending was especially entertaining.
  • New Alliances on Nov. 30, 2013

    Where do I start on this one? It's another unusual yet enjoyable addition to the series, yes, but so much more! This one is a book that will take you on an emotional rollercoaster ride as you follow the characters the earlier books in the series have taught you to love.
  • Where's Emma?: A Denali Hawthorne Short Mystery on Nov. 30, 2013

    This is a cute little story, and an excellent mmystery. It's well written and worth reading.
  • Angel Evolution on Dec. 22, 2013

    This is a reasonably good read; not amazing, but pretty good. The plot is interesting and the way angels and demons are portrayed is unusual.
  • Demon Evolution on Dec. 28, 2013

    Yet again this is a reasonably good read; it's not the most amazing book I've ever read, but it's pretty good and worth the time involved in reading it.
  • Archangel Evolution on Dec. 30, 2013

    This book is a great ending to the trilogy. In fact, I think it's the best book of the entire trilogy! I would recommend this trilogy to anyone who loves stories about angels and demons but is looking for something different.
  • The Catalyst (Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy: Preternaturals Book 3) on Jan. 02, 2014

    This book is another awesome addition to the series from an absolutely amazing author!
  • Life Cycle (Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy: Preternaturals Book 4) on Jan. 04, 2014

    This is another fantastic book, which is a wonderful addition to the series. I look forward to reading more by this author!
  • The Trouble Upstream on Jan. 14, 2014

    This is a great little story, which fans of books like the Redwall series and The Wind In The Willows will enjoy.
  • Winston - A Horse's Tale on March 08, 2014

    A beautiful and moving story.
  • Fuel to the Fire on March 15, 2014

    This book is an absolutely amazing read, and a fantastic start to the series! It's wonderfully written, with well-rounded characters, a plot that moves along at a nice pace, and excellent descriptions.
  • Redemption (NIGHTSCHOOL VAMPIRE HUNTER TRILOGY) on March 18, 2014

    This is a fantastic book, which makes a great ending to the trilogy. It's well paced, the characters are well-rounded, and the action scenes are well described; descriptive enough to be detailed, but not so full of description that it slows the action down. I enjoyed seeing how the characters and their relationships with one another have evolved since the start of the series.
  • The Chariot Stone on March 22, 2014

    This was a pretty good read, despite being a little different from what I expected after reading the description; not different in a bad way though, and worth the read. It could use a little editing though.
  • Lauren versus the Leprechauns on March 22, 2014

    A cute and entertaining little story.
  • Wyrd Worlds on March 31, 2014

    This is an interesting collection of stories, some of which are very entertaining.
  • Daksha the Medicine Girl on April 02, 2014

    This is a great littl story; sweet and inspirational.
  • Surviving the Fog on April 06, 2014

    This is a really good book. I would have prefered a little less of the story to be focussed on people hooking up though. I get that teenagers are generally slaves to their emotions, but I would have thought the few adults - especially the abused women - would have taken a lot longer to become slaves to their hormones, and that at least some of the teenagers would have been more strongly affected by what they'd seen and therefore reluctant to engage in such activities.
  • Surviving the Fog-Kathy's Recollections on April 09, 2014

    It was interesting reading about the events from another point of view, and the author did a pretty good job of seeing things from the point of view of a teenage girl. In fact, I think this version of the story is bettter, because more of the emotional stress you would expect to see in these kinds of situations is evident.
  • Alien Coffee on April 09, 2014

    Haha! Love it! This really was a fantastic and entertaining read!
  • CRYO: A Changed World on April 16, 2014

    I've been looking forward to reading this book ever since I read the first in the series. I was not disappointed; it was well worth the wait! This book is fantastically imaginative, while at the same time being written in such a way that you can clearly picture the events in your mind, as well as being able to see the possibility of the events in this book actually being a possible future for our planet. The characters are well-rounded, the plot moves at a nice pace, and the descriptions are so amazing you can easily imagine yourself in to the story. I can't wait to read more!
  • If It Wasn't For Sarah on April 25, 2014

    This is an entertaining and somewhat amusing read.
  • Missing in Egypt on April 27, 2014

    All the details about Anna's job at the start of the book meant it took a while to get in to the story, but once the story picked up a bit the book was a pretty good read.
  • Time Tells Tales - Tale Five - A Gift For All on May 15, 2014

    This is a beautiful and touching end to the tale, which would have deserved a 5 star rating if a bit more care had been taken when it comes to editing. It's a shame that an otherwise excellent story was spoiled by being filled with so many typing errors, because I would have liked to give the book the 5 star rating it would have been given, but I don't feel I can when it so obviously needs editing.
  • Clouds over Planet X on June 05, 2014

    I swear this series gets better with every book! This is an excellent story! It's well written, with fantastic world building, believable and well-rounded characters, and a very creative plot, which will grab your interest from the start, and keep a firm hold on it until the very end.
  • Turning Curse on July 10, 2014

    This was a pretty good read, with an interesting cast of characters. I love the plot of this story, and the twist on the old fairy tale. The book is mostly well written, though I felt there were places where the author could have been more descriptive, and other places where the choice of wording slowed the plot down when events called for a faster pace for the scene in question.
  • Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb on July 15, 2014

    Excellent plot, great characters, and fantastic concept. All in all, an amazing book!
  • Enter: Ten Tales for Tweens - Fantastic Short Stories for Middle Grade Readers on July 15, 2014

    A pretty good collection of stories; some amusing, some strange, some a bit disturbing, but all worth reading.
  • Drippy the Peg Legged Rainbow on July 17, 2014

    Ha! Love it! Another entertaining and well written story from a fantastic author!
  • Unholy Cow on July 18, 2014

    Absolutely fantastic! Well written and very entertaining!
  • Legend: A short story on July 18, 2014

    This book was an excellent read!
  • Art Pengriffin & The Curse Of The Four on July 24, 2014

    This book was really good. I had a bit of a problem with the frequency of cursing at the start, and the use of nicknames for the four horsemen was confusing at times, but otherwise the book was a great read. Perhaps a bit too vivid in the descriptions of gory scenes for some though, so you should probably avoid eating while reading it.
  • Starblazer on July 24, 2014

    A well written story, with intriguing characters; an interesting glimpse in to the world of Silvery Earth. I look forward to reading more.
  • Tales of the Southern Kingdoms - volume 1 on July 27, 2014

    This is a well written collection of stories, with interesting and well-rounded characters, and absolutely fantastic world building. Not the sort of book to read if you shy away from graphic and sometimes violent sexual encounters, but a great read if you enjoy those kinds of things.
  • Books of the Immortals - Air on July 29, 2014

    An excellent read! I love the fascinating world the author has created, as well as the interesting cast of characters. Also, the story itself is well-written, with a plot that moves at a good pace.
  • Tales of the Southern Kingdoms - volume 2 on July 30, 2014

    This was a great collection of stories, with excellent world building and an interesting cast of characters. I didn't enjoy it quite as much as I've enjoyed everything else I've read so far by this author though, because there were parts of some of the stories I wasn't happy with, and the only thing I liked about "The Lords Of War" was the ending.
  • The Willow Fairies on July 30, 2014

    What an absolutely delightful little story! Very sweet and imaginative, and totally worth the read!
  • The Man in the Moon on July 30, 2014
    (no rating)
    Since most of the text isn't accessable when you're using a screen reader I was unable to read this book. I'd assumed that even if part of the story was lost to me because of the pictures, the text mentioned in earlier reviews would be accessable; it wasn't. Because of this I don't think it would be fair to give it a rating. However, since this wasn't the author's fault (I should have checked the sample before buying) and since I know how frustrating it can be wondering why people haven't left reviews when they've brought copies of your book, I decided to take the time to post this to let the author know.
  • The Lemonade Stand on July 31, 2014

    This was a pretty good story; kind of creepy and weird.
  • The Witches on July 31, 2014

    A pretty good read; kind of scary, and very strange.
  • The Spotless Leopard on July 31, 2014

    An enjoyable and entertaining story!
  • The Tale of Bernie the Fruit Bat on July 31, 2014

    Cute!
  • A New Start in the Niobrara for Mr. and Mrs. O'Malley on Aug. 01, 2014

    This is a very nice and well-written piece, but it feels more like the start of a longer tale than a story in its own right.
  • Boudicca: Britain's Queen of the Iceni on Aug. 05, 2014

    This book was an excellent read; both enjoyable and educational at the same time, it's a pleasant way to learn a little history, and well worth reading.
  • Catherine de Valois on Aug. 05, 2014

    This book was an excellent read; both enjoyable and educational at the same time, it's a pleasant way to learn a little history, and well worth reading.
  • Reality Challenged on Aug. 08, 2014

    Entertaining, fantastic, hilarious, weird - these are all words that spring to mind to describe this book. This is a very well-written book, with extremely colourful characters, a plot that will keep you both guessing and laughing until the end, and a very appropriate title.
  • The Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy Guide to Revenge on Aug. 24, 2014

    What a great little story!
  • Santa in a Shopping Cart on Aug. 24, 2014

    What a beautiful and touching story; perfect to warm your heart at any time of the year, holidays or not!
  • Nicky and the Lost Templar on Aug. 25, 2014

    A really great read!
  • Will You Call My Name on Aug. 26, 2014

    This is a great little story; touching in parts, amusing in others.
  • Royal Theft on Sep. 15, 2014

    This book was an enjoyable read, with an interesting plot, and a great - though sometimes frustrating - cast of characters. I wasn't entirely satisfied with the ending, but it's more because after everything that had happened in the story I wasn't entirely pleased with the decision made by the characters than anything else, and I suspect it was done in preporation for the events that will happen in the next book in the series (though I don't know this for sure; I'm just guessing). Besides, though I wasn't happy with their choice, I can understand it. I'm sorry, but I can't say more without giving spoilers, and I never give spoilers in my reviews! Anyway, despite my thoughts on the ending, I'm still going to give the book 5 stars, since the ending wasn't a bad one, just not the one I would have liked to have had happen, if you know what I mean.
  • History of Fire (A Dark Faerie Tale #5) on Sep. 16, 2014

    This was an amazing book!
  • Humanity Was Delicious on Sep. 28, 2014

    An excellent and well-written story. You should probably avoid eating and drinking while reading it though, due to possible choking hazzards, or the possibility of spraying innocent bystanders with whatever you were attempting to eat or drink; which tends to annoy them, and is a waste of perfectly good food and drink.
  • The Imaginary Invasion on Sep. 28, 2014

    This is a very creative story, and I wouldn't know where to start with telling you about it. So, I'll just say that if you haven't read it yet then you really should. I mean it!
  • Wyrd Worlds II on Sep. 28, 2014

    It took me a couple of days to write this review after I read the book, because I wasn't sure if I should review it or not. I mean, it has a story from me in it. But, since my story is just one of many, I decided I would review the book. Besides, though I liked some stories more than others, all the stories in this collection are very good, and there's not a single story in the entire collection that I didn't like. But I won't give the book a full 5 stars, because it wouldn't be right when doing so would require me to also count my own story. Plus, since some of the stories would have gotten 5 stars from me, and others would have gotten 4 stars, I figure a 4 star rating overall is fair. Anyway... Great work everyone!
  • Blue Haired Alien Girlfriend on Oct. 06, 2014

    Great story concept, excellent writing style, and wonderful character creation. I only had one issue with this book: the ending was much too abrupt, leaving me with a feeling that I didn't really know the end of the story.
  • The Tombstone Stranger on Oct. 06, 2014

    This book was a great read, and well written.
  • The Reaper's Opus on Oct. 06, 2014

    The stories in this book are excellent! They're well written, easy to read, and have interesting plots. I shall most definitely be looking out for more from this author in future!
  • The MegaDog Tales: Unleash the Power on Oct. 09, 2014

    This was a great read, but it would have been better if the dogs were more like dogs with superpowers than superheroes with some dog-like characteristics. I mean, the very fact they're able to act like normal dogs when they want to shows they're still essentially dogs, and definitely dog shaped, so they shouldn't be able to walk on their back legs for long periods of time, and shouldn't be able to do some of the things with their paws that the author mentions them doing. If one or two of the dogs was mutated in a way that would allow them to be more flexible, fair enough, but since none of their powers would give them that ability they should be acting more like dogs and less like people. Other than that, however, I thought this book was very good.
  • The MegaDog Tales 2: The Regal Beagle on Oct. 09, 2014

    This was a great read, but it would have been better if the dogs were more like dogs with superpowers than superheroes with some dog-like characteristics. I mean, the very fact they're able to act like normal dogs when they want to shows they're still essentially dogs, and definitely dog shaped, so they shouldn't be able to walk on their back legs for long periods of time, and shouldn't be able to do some of the things with their paws that the author mentions them doing. If one or two of the dogs was mutated in a way that would allow them to be more flexible, fair enough, but since none of their powers would give them that ability they should be acting more like dogs and less like people. Other than that, however, I thought this book was very good.
  • The Land Never Promised on Oct. 11, 2014

    Great writing, wonderful descriptions, excellent worldbuilding, and fantastic character creation. The only thing that stops me giving it a 5 star rating is the fact the story feels like it's the start of a longer story, or a scene from a longer story, rather than feeling like a full story in its own right.
  • Amy's Angels on Oct. 11, 2014

    This is a pretty ood book, with a great message.
  • The Punishment of Phoebus Apollo on Oct. 12, 2014

    An excellent little story.
  • In The Footsteps of Giants We Can Hear Echoes on Oct. 12, 2014

    A very imaginative story, which makes for an enjoyable read!
  • The Ramblers on Oct. 12, 2014

    A great little story.
  • The Stone Shepherd's Son on Oct. 14, 2014

    A strange story...
  • Marcella, vampire Mage on Oct. 14, 2014

    A pretty good read!
  • The Luck of the Irish (In Love) on Oct. 14, 2014

    What a charming little story; I loved it!
  • Dappled Harmony on Oct. 14, 2014

    A sweet little scene .
  • The Tale of One Tree on Oct. 14, 2014

    What a cute and touching little story!
  • The World Beyond the Door on Oct. 15, 2014

    What a wonderful story! It's creative, well written, entertaining, and most definitely worth the read!
  • The Forgotten Village on Oct. 16, 2014

    This book was a pretty good read.
  • Madison and the Missing Moon on Oct. 16, 2014

    This is a cute and creative story; very sweet, and most definitely worth the read. A great read at Christmas time, or any other time for that matter!
  • Conquer the Castle - A Legend of Oescienne Short Story on Oct. 16, 2014

    An absolutely amazing read!
  • The Lady in the Forest on Oct. 16, 2014

    A nice little story!
  • Inverse Fall on Oct. 16, 2014

    An unusual story, with a surprising ending.
  • The Ice Princess on Oct. 17, 2014

    A great story.
  • The Bell Tower Suite on Dec. 27, 2014

    An entertaining and enjoyable addition to the series.
  • Wolfsblood on Dec. 28, 2014

    The main character was likable, the plot was interesting and moved at a nice pace, and this was a great book overall, with well-rounded characters. However, I felt there were a few historical inaccuracies, which spoiled the story a little for me .
  • Dangerous Associations on Dec. 28, 2014

    This book is well-written, with a plot that's both believable and moves at a nice pace for the genre. The characters are well-rounded, and the main character is someone easy to like and sympathize with. I should warn you though that the book contains scenes which some readers may find upsetting.
  • Strange Portals - Ink Slingers' Fantasy/Horror Anthology on Dec. 30, 2014

    An interesting mix of quite unusual stories; some great, some not to my taste, but all well-written.
  • Dogs in Space! - Illustrated on Jan. 25, 2015

    This is a great story, and I wanted so bad to give it five stars. But I can't. Why? Because the cats and dogs in this story are meant to be actual pets, so should have the same physical abilities as your average pet - even if they can talk, and are using technology - but these pets somehow have things cats and dogs don't (like opposable thumbs). They also do things that even humans couldn't do unless they have super strength (like single handedly move a large object the size of a car and larger). However, if you can get past those things, it's a good read, and either way it's very entertaining; I liked it enough that I plan to get the rest of the series at some point, anyway.
  • The Great Escape -- Illustrated! on Feb. 07, 2015

    This is a great little story, with an excellent message about how important it is to care for your pets. It has an entertaining plot, as well as a fantastic cast of canine and feline characters. The only reason I don't give it the full five stars is because the cats and dogs are meant to be just like your average pet cats and dogs, yet they have physical capabilities that those animals could never have. Still, it was a wonderful story, and I look forward to reading the rest of the series!
  • The Golden Treasure - Illustrated! on Feb. 07, 2015

    Like the first book in the series, this is a great little story, with an entertaining plot, as well as a fantastic cast of canine and feline characters. The only reason I don't give it the full five stars is the same reason I didn't give the first book in the series the full five stars: because the cats and dogs are meant to be just like your average pet cats and dogs, yet they have physical capabilities that those animals could never have. Still, it was a wonderful story, and I look forward to reading the rest of the series!
  • Rampaging Rats - Illustrated! on Feb. 08, 2015

    This is another great little Astro story, with an excellent - and often entertaining - cast of characters. I loved it just as much as I've loved the others I've read from the series so far, and can't wait to read more! Unfortunately, I also had the same issue with it as I've had with the other books in the series: since the animals are supposed to be just like your average pets - though, admittedly, with a few extra talents - they should have the same physical capabilities, and not be able to do things that would require the use of thumbs without some sort of tool to compensate for their lack of opposable thumbs .
  • Major Dakota's Ghost - Illustrated! on Feb. 08, 2015

    This is another great addition to the Astro's Adventures series. I really do love the antics of the dogs that make up the cast of characters in this series, and can't wait to read the rest of the series! I still have an issue with the fact the canine cast is able to do things that would be impossible for a dog to do though... I know I keep saying this in my reviews of the books in the series, but dogs don't have opposable thumbs, and therefore shouldn't be able to do things that require them; not without some sort of tool to compensate .
  • Astro is Down in the Dumps on Feb. 09, 2015

    This is a fantastic book, which is well-written, and full of some excellent ideas to help children - and adults - deal with depression. The verse flows well, and is easy to read, while also being very informative.
  • The Gypsy Curse! - Illustrated on Feb. 11, 2015

    Another great addition to the series; I'm loving the cast of canine and feline characters. As with the others I've read so far in the Astro's Adventures series, I thought the book was excellent, except for the issue of dogs and cats who don't have opposable thumbs managing to do things they couldn't possibly do without them. Still, I really enjoyed reading this book!
  • A Christmas Calamity - Illustrated & With Spylinks! on Feb. 11, 2015

    This is a wonderful little story, with an entertaining and lovable cast of canine characters. I have the same opinion of this book as I've had of all the others in the series so far; including the opinion I have about the opposable thumbs issue.
  • Neptune's Trident! - Illustrated on Feb. 12, 2015

    This wasn't my favourite of the Astro's Adventures books, but it was still a pretty good read. I'm still loving the canine cast, and the other characters in the book were great too. But I still have an issue with the physical capabilities of the animals being inconsistent... If they're pets/regular creatures, then they should only have the physical capabilities of the real creatures (for example, dogs don't have opposable thumbs, and cats can't put their "arms" by their sides to make themselves more streamlined for ease of swimming) and if they're animal characters with the physical capabilities of humans, they shouldn't be able to so easily pass for regular animals, and wouldn't need humans anyway; thus illiminating the need for the organization's true reason for existing. Also, regardless of the type of cat character he is - and fish supper or not - a cat should have been more reluctant to jump in the water (I'm not saying a cat wouldn't go in water, but I would have liked to see a bit of reluctance before he jumped in). However, other than those issues, I thought it was a pretty good read, and I look forward to reading more from the author in the future.
  • Currents of Thunder on Feb. 26, 2015

    An unusual, but enjoyable story; very well written!
  • Villainous Vic on Feb. 26, 2015

    An extremely entertaining and enjoyable read; a great addition to the "Bogamus And Friends" series!
  • Darkness Devouring (The Cry of Havoc, Book 2) on March 15, 2015

    This book was a really good read.
  • Snapdragon Alley on March 21, 2015

    A pretty good start to the series, though the amount of unexplained and unanswered questions is frustrating... I hope it all gets answered in later books.
  • Freak City on March 23, 2015

    A great read, though the ending was a bit sudden.
  • Dragon Town on March 23, 2015

    A great addition to the series.
  • Happy Slumbers on March 23, 2015

    I read all four books, and really enjoyed them. I still felt there were parts of the mystery not explained well enough at the end, but I did like the series anyway.
  • Zombie Moon Rising (A Peter Brannigan Novella) on March 30, 2015

    This book was a really good read.
  • Ghost Moon Rising (A Peter Brannigan Novella) on March 30, 2015

    This book is a really good read. I advise making sure to read it in its correct place in the books from this world though, otherwise you'll have missed a lot of the plot points that get you to t his point of the story.
  • The Withering Palace (A Dark Faerie Tale #0.1) on March 31, 2015

    A pretty good addition to the series!
  • Old Jack's Tale on March 31, 2015

    A story with great potential, but an unsatisfying ending.
  • Psycho Psyche on March 31, 2015

    Not my favourite of the series, but a nice read all the same.
  • Ever Dead (A Dark Faerie Tale #6) on April 02, 2015

    A pretty good, and quite enjoyable addition to the series.
  • Untold Tales: Prequel (Legends of Fyrsta) on April 05, 2015

    This is an excellent and well-written book.
  • Star Minds on April 18, 2015

    A great read; well-written, and worth reading.
  • Star Minds Snippets on April 18, 2015

    A great read; well-written, and worth reading. I enjoyed learning more about the characters from the series, and their lives before.
  • The Dreamweaver's Journey: The Age of Awakenings Book 1 on April 24, 2015

    An absolutely fantastic read!
  • The Guardian Child's Return: The Age of Awakenings Book 2 on April 24, 2015

    A great sequel to "The Dreamweaver's Journey" and a fantastic read!
  • Legacy of Mist and Shadow: The Age of Awakenings Book 3 on April 24, 2015

    Another great addition to the series! I hope there will be more, because this is an excellent series, and I would just love to see what other tales the storyteller has to share!
  • Alien Mission: Real Friends and The Importance of Perseverance on April 26, 2015

    Could use a little more work with editing, but otherwise a great book; very entertaining!
  • The Orthogonal Galaxy on May 13, 2015

    A pretty good read; recommended for those who love the science side of sci-fi, rather than the typical space wars and aliens stories. My only real issue with the book was that I found the double story the author had going on a bit distracting. I know - having read the whole book - what the point of telling both stories was, but still .
  • Warlords of Llantatis on May 19, 2015

    I didn't enjoy this quite as much as I enjoyed the author's other work, but it was still a really good read. It's entertaining, with a great cast of characters.
  • The Haunted Circus on May 20, 2015

    This is a great story, but I had a slight issue that stops me giving it the full five stars... It's the same issue I've had with all the books in this series: the animals are supposed to be your average animals physically, yet they are capable of doing things that would be physically impossible for an animal to do (such as doing things that require thumbs, sitting up with their back legs crossed, etc). I have no problem with humanoid animals (meaning, animals that physically can do anything a human can, but just happen to have animal features and characteristics) but these are supposed to be animals that look like animals do in real life, and should therefore have the physical capabilities of those animals.
  • Star Minds Next Generation on May 25, 2015

    A well written book, with a great plot, and a fantastic cast of characters; I actually think this one is better than the original Star Minds books.
  • Star Minds Next Generation Diaries on May 29, 2015

    This is another well-written book, with a great cast of characters, which I loved learning more about after having been introduced to them in previous Star Minds books.
  • Forbidden (Preternaturals Book 5) on June 01, 2015

    A great addition to the series.
  • Unleash The Moon (The Preternaturals Book 6) on June 01, 2015

    An excellent ending to the series!
  • Clarence. The Snake from Dunolly on June 01, 2015

    A really good collection of stories. Some stories are better than others, but the whole book is enjoyable. The stories are all very imaginative, and the author has a great writing style.
  • Romeow & Drooliet on June 01, 2015

    Well-written, and very sweet!
  • The Christmas Mouse on June 01, 2015

    This is a very cute story, and I loved it. I'd have liked to hear more about how the little mouse was able to do the things he did, but it was an excellent story apart from that.
  • Tiffy's Terrible Top Hat: Mean Girl Bully Learns A Lesson on June 05, 2015

    A really good read.
  • Tales of Spook on June 05, 2015

    Another pretty good read.
  • The Blackbird That Couldn't Sing on July 16, 2015

    What an absolutely beautiful story! It's well written and fun to read, plus carries a couple of important messages you'll want your child to learn, while not being too preachy. I highly recommend this book.
  • Santa's Silliness Syndrome on July 18, 2015

    This is a pretty good story, but would have been more enjoyable - not to mention more entertaining - if we'd heard the story as it unfolded, rather than as a re-telling after the fact; I feel it spoils it a little to already know how things turned out before hearing what happened.
  • The Magic Colouring Book on July 18, 2015

    This story is cute and imaginative.
  • Time Line on July 18, 2015

    This is a great story, but I felt it ended too suddenly, and would have liked the story to go on long enough for us to witness the scene mentioned at the very end of the book. I don't like spoilers, so I won't explain what that was here, but I will say that I would have liked to see how the final thing Hazel needed to do played out.
  • They're Not Real, Grandma on July 18, 2015

    What a sweet little story! I love it... So cute!
  • Flat Cats on July 18, 2015

    I really enjoyed this story. I think the ability Chloe has is very creative, and the story itself is very imaginative.
  • The Cry Bear on July 18, 2015

    This is a really sweet story, and I think the idea of a cry bear is fantastic.
  • The Shiny House on July 18, 2015

    For the most part this was an enjoyable read. Unfortunately, the way the author had the narrator of the story go off on his own ramblings, or throw in side notes, spoiled it for me, as I felt it wasn't right for the story. I'm sure the author meant it to be amusing, but it didn't work. That sort of thing is difficult to pull off properly in a story like this, and I'm afraid I didn't feel the author was successful. Now, had it been a legend or folktale, with a scene set up from the start for you to imagine yourself at a campfire with a storyteller, it might have worked. Other than that, however, it was a really great read.
  • The Silver Shawl: A Mrs. Meade Mystery on July 19, 2015

    This is a very well-written story, with a great cast of characters, and a plot that moves at a perfect pace. Being a fan of the Miss Marple stories, I hoped the claim that fans of those stories would enjoy this one was accurate. I'm pleased to report that I was not disappointed; I enjoyed every moment of the story, and completely agree with the claim that this story would be enjoyed by fans of Miss Marple.
  • The Bird Who Wanted to Nest in the Clouds on July 23, 2015

    What a cute book, with a great message about trying to make your dreams come true.
  • The Magic Puddle on July 23, 2015

    This is a well-written and entertaining little story, which was a lot of fun to read.
  • The Magnificent Rainbow on July 23, 2015

    What a sweet little story; very touching, and extremely well-written.
  • The Shy Toad on July 23, 2015

    This is a beautiful little story about overcoming shyness and making friends; perfect to read to children who are very reserved and lacking in confidence.
  • The Slow Tortoise on July 23, 2015

    This is a cute little story, with a great message about being happy to be yourself.
  • The Special Fairy on July 23, 2015

    This is a beautiful and touching story.
  • The Elephant's First Day of School on July 24, 2015

    This is a wonderful little story, which is both enjoyable and educational. It combines a fun story about overcoming the nervousness of starting school with interesting facts about elephants, and does it in a way any child will enjoy.
  • Earth Giant on July 24, 2015

    This is a wonderful little story, which explores themes of acceptance and lonelyness; a great little story for children that feel they don't fit in anywhere... Adults too, for that matter!
  • Bianca on July 24, 2015

    A wonderful sequel to "Earth Giant" and a fantastic story in it's own right, this is a perfect book to help children - and adults too - to see that there's a place where everyone can belong.
  • The Competition on July 24, 2015

    A beautiful fairy story; perfect for teaching children about the different seasons.
  • The Butterfly That Lost A Spot on July 24, 2015

    This is a very cute, and extremely enjoyable story, which teaches an important lesson while entertaining you.
  • Dog on the Highway on July 27, 2015

    A fantastic addition to the series! The characters are interesting, the worldbuilding is fantastic, the plot moves at a nice pace, and the book is an all round good read.
  • Costumes on July 31, 2015

    An entertaining and creepy read.
  • Long Ago and Far Away on Aug. 03, 2015

    This is a sweet, and well-written, book, with a nice image of a Grandfather telling stories to his Grandchildren. Plus, the story he tells them is a great one. It would have been better if he'd started telling it to the younger child, and the others had just heard and come over though, rather than them waiting for the older ones to be ready; especially since the initial reason for the story was that the younger child was being excluded from the game the older two were playing. But that's my only issue, and I loved everything else about this book.
  • Sampson to the Rescue on Aug. 03, 2015

    This is a well-written and touching little story; I love how things are told from Sampson's point of view, and think anyone would be lucky to have a horse as loyal as him.
  • Pretty as a Picture on Aug. 03, 2015

    What a sweet little story! This is a well-written story, which is perfect for animal lovers of any age; especially those who love rabbits.
  • Fluff Gang Tales on Aug. 03, 2015

    This is a great little collection of sweet and entertaining rhymes, which come together to create a lovely little story. Young children especially will love this book.
  • The Fluff Gang and the New Neighbour on Aug. 03, 2015

    This is another sweet and entertaining collection of rhymes, which all come together to create a great little story; perfect for young children especially. This one also holds a great lesson about not being too quick to judge people.
  • Alfie Goes to Uni on Aug. 03, 2015

    This is a well-written and cute story. Most children have that special toy that goes everywhere with them, and some of us are lucky enough to still have it when we grow up... Alfie is one of those toys, and his story will warm your heart and make you want to cuddle your favourite toy; even if you're all grown up.
  • Just Joe on Aug. 03, 2015

    This is a beautifully written story, which will capture the imagination, and warm the hearts, of children and adults alike.
  • The Pottery Fish Poetry Collection on Aug. 03, 2015

    This is a wonderful collection of poems, which are beautifully written.
  • PC Mouse on Aug. 03, 2015

    This is a very creative and cute story.
  • Never Ending Bad Day on Aug. 05, 2015

    This book is an enjoyable read.
  • The Legend of ELPanda Paws on Aug. 05, 2015

    This is a very cute and creative story.
  • The Old Mansion on Aug. 05, 2015

    This was a really good story, though with an ending that was a little disappointing due to being so sudden.
  • Cosmic Camel on Aug. 07, 2015

    A well-written, and very entertaining story.
  • Get Well Before It Gets You on Aug. 07, 2015

    Pretty good, but not the best in the series.
  • Treasure Hunt on Aug. 07, 2015

    A great story, with a wonderful message.
  • The Last Fight of the Dwarves on Aug. 09, 2015

    This is an excellent short read, which works well on its own, but would also work as part of a longer story.
  • The Forgotten Toy Soldier on Aug. 09, 2015

    This is a beautifully written story, which is just as much of a heartwarming tale as it claims to be.
  • Black Blood (Black Bloods, Book 1) on Aug. 10, 2015

    This book is a really good book, though I'm still a little confused on some points... I'm hoping they will become clear as the series progresses.
  • Norbert on Aug. 11, 2015

    This is a very well written, and quite entertaining story, with a fantastic cast of characters.
  • Norbert's Summer Holiday on Aug. 11, 2015

    This is as well written and entertaining as the first book in the series; I absolutely love the characters, and the book had me chuckling more than once.
  • And What Do You Want For Christmas? on Aug. 13, 2015

    This is a beautiful and touching little tale; perfect as a holiday story, or as an introduction to the topic of a new baby joining the family.
  • Holiday Blues on Aug. 13, 2015

    This is a great book, with a couple of important lessons to teach. Not only are the characters believeable, but the way Matt learns from his experiences and grows as the story progresses happens at the perfect pace.
  • Honk The Donk on Aug. 14, 2015

    This story is very cute and entertaining, but feels like it should be part of a longer book.
  • A Squirrel Called Cyril on Aug. 14, 2015

    This is a fantastic little story, which teaches a great lesson about how quickly lies can get out of hand, and how easy it is for even a very little lie to get you in to trouble.
  • A Prickly Problem on Aug. 14, 2015

    This is a wonderful and touching story, which is perfect for animal lovers of all ages.
  • Dralin on Aug. 15, 2015

    This book was an excellent read. It might be a bit graphic in some places for those with a sensative stomach, but that's an issue that only crops up from time to time, and isn't really a problem for most people. Anyway, it's a well-written book, with a great cast of characters, and I really enjoyed it.
  • Ebudae on Aug. 16, 2015

    This was a very enjoyable read, which is a great addition to the series.
  • Pelya on Aug. 16, 2015

    This was a fantastic ending to the trilogy, and the best of the books in the trilogy too. I look forward to reading more of the books set in the same world.
  • I Can't See You on Aug. 20, 2015

    A well-written, and very thought-provoking story.
  • One Thousand Lollipops on Aug. 20, 2015

    This is a well-written story, which is not just an entertaining read, but is also one with a couple of lessons to teach; the perfect combination in a story for children.
  • Igglepop on Aug. 20, 2015

    An entertaining read.
  • Of Mice and Mobiles on Aug. 20, 2015

    This is a very well-written story, which is strange but enjoyable.

    A well-written and enjoyable read, with a great cast of characters, and an interesting plot.
  • It's Just a Job on Aug. 26, 2015

    This is a great story. It would be even better if it was part of a longer story, but it was a really good read.
  • Rojuun on Aug. 30, 2015

    This book is very well-written, and extremely entertaining and amusing to read. The plot is nicely paced, and the characters are interesting.
  • Anilyia on Aug. 30, 2015

    This was a fantastic book... Until the ending, which felt much to sudden for my liking. I understand that the book is the middle one in a trilogy, but I still felt the ending was left a little too open. Having said that, I loved everything else about the book, so still consider it a great read.
  • Kethril on Aug. 30, 2015

    This book was fantastic! I love the author's sense of humour, the characters are interesting, the plot moves at a nice pace, and the book is well-written in general.
  • Wyvern on Sep. 04, 2015

    This book is a fantastic read, with a plot that moves at a nice pace, believable characters, and excellent worldbuilding. Also, the author's writing style will easily keep you entertained and amused from start to finnish.
  • Yoikes on Sep. 19, 2015

    An entertaining addition to the series.
  • Till the Dark of Winter on Sep. 19, 2015

    An entertaining read.
  • Willy's Adventures on Sep. 19, 2015

    This is an entertaining book, which was an enjoyable read.
  • When the Lights Go Out - Ink Slingers' Halloween Anthology on Oct. 12, 2015

    The stories in this collection are creepy, often gory, and should be avoided by anyone who is sensative - especially if your sensativity is a weak stomach. However, if you can handle them, then they're worth a read, because each one is well-written, and the collection is great as a whole. I enjoyed some more than others, of course; you always find that in anthologies like this. But the authors did a great job in putting together this collection, and I recommend it to anyone who can handle it.
  • Never The Twain on Oct. 23, 2015

    This is a sweet story, which shows how important it is not to be too quick to make judgements, as well as how even creatures who are natural enemies can form atatchments and be there for one another in times of trouble.
  • Trick or Treat on Oct. 31, 2015

    This is a fantastic Halloween story; well-written, with just the right amount of creepyness to make it a great spooky read, but without being too scary for younger readers. A great read for adults and children alike.
  • Firebird on Nov. 10, 2015

    An excellent and well-written story, with an interesting plot, and fascinating characters.
  • Rajveer the Vampire on Nov. 15, 2015

    Overall, this book is a great read, with fantastic descriptions, and some excellent characters. I was a little disappointed near the end though, as I felt Rajveer should have found a way to solve things by himself, rather than having outside help that had never been so much as hinted at being an available option earlier in the story (I can't say more without giving spoilers, and I don't do spoilers).
  • Without Armor: Elemental Fire (A Dark Faerie Tale Series Companion Book 4) on Nov. 15, 2015

    This book isn't the best in the series, but it is a good read, and a nice addition to the series.
  • Merry Christmas, Mister Wolf on Dec. 22, 2015

    An excellent combination of sci-fi and fairy tale re-tellings... I look forward to reading more by this author.
  • Angels Club on Jan. 19, 2016

    This is a beautifully written and very touching story.
  • Doomsday Diary on Jan. 24, 2016

    This is another excellent addition to the series, which is a creative and well-written story.
  • Dried Eggs and Spam on March 06, 2016

    This book makes for an interesting read, which gives you a fascinating glimpse in to the lives of those who were alive during WWII. Not only does it provide a brief glimpse in to the lives of people during the war, but also shortly afterwards, during the years when people were still trying to return to something resembling a normal life. A must read for those who have any interest at all in WWII itself, or the years immediately after it.
  • Outside the Walls on March 06, 2016

    This book is a beautifully written and very enjoyable read.
  • Mary Queen of the Scots on March 07, 2016

    A well-written book, which is an interesting look in to the life of Mary Queen of the Scots.
  • Queen Elizabeth Tudor: Journey to Gloriana on March 08, 2016

    This is a well-written book, which is a great addition to the series, and once again provides a fascinating look in to the life of one of history's great women.
  • Sands of Time on March 08, 2016

    This is a great story, with a beautiful and touching ending. It's an excellent sequel to "Trick Or Treat" and well worth the read.
  • Poppy Finds a Home on March 16, 2016

    This is a sweet story, which makes a fun read for any animal lover.
  • Curefinder (Black Bloods, Novella Prequel) on March 18, 2016

    This book is an interesting read, and a pretty good prequel to the series.
  • Nicky and the Lost Star on March 21, 2016

    This book is a great addition to the series, which would also make for a fun and entertaining read in its own right.
  • The Entirely Strange and Miraculously True Tails of Mia and Eve on March 21, 2016

    A cute story.
  • The Kitchen Imps and Other Dark Tales (A Fire-Side Tales Collection) on April 06, 2016

    An entertaining and enjoyable collection of well-written tales.
  • Remnants (Remnants Trilogy, Book 1) on May 10, 2016

    I really enjoyed this book. The characters are believable, and so are the alions. The plot moves at a nice pace, there are some great descriptions, and the writing itself helps to make the book an enjoyable read. The only thing I didn't really like about the book was the fact one of the characters was so free with curse words. I mean, I understand the desire to curse in those situations, but I don't think we needed to have the words repeated so many times; it would have been better if we were just told she was cursing, or the word was mentioned once then we were told she said it several times. Other than that, I thought it was a great read. Most certainly not one for the weak stomached though.
  • Empress Wu Zetian on May 12, 2016

    This is another excellent and well-written addition to the series. It's a fascinating read, which will appeal to young and old history lovers alike.
  • Charioteer of Buddha on May 12, 2016

    This book was a great read; it's interesting to read the stories of some of the other characters we met in Rajveer the vampire, and hear some of the overlapping events from their point of view.
  • The Empress' New Gowns on June 13, 2016

    I'm a huge fan of this author's work, and I love fairy tale re-tellings and spin-offs, so I was excited to read this one. Let me tell you now, I was not disappointed! This is a well-written story, which was an absolute delight to read.
  • Gwenllian ferch Gruffydd, The Warrior Princess of Deheubarth on June 16, 2016

    An excellent addition to the series; well-written, and very interesting. This book is a perfect one for history lovers of all ages.
  • What's In My Shorts on June 17, 2016

    An interesting collection of stories. I enjoyed some more than others, as is generally the case when reading a collection of stories, but all are well-written and worth reading.
  • The Blue Hat Club on June 22, 2016

    This is a well-written and touching story; highly recommended!
  • Waking the Dragon on June 23, 2016

    There is one reason, and one reason only, why I'm reluctant to give this book the full five star rating: the confusion about the realistic capabilities of the dogs, and other animals, in the book. The thing is, we're led to believe that these animals are essentially just regular animals who do extraordinary things. And that would be fine. Except that they physically do things that there's no way an animal shaped like the kind they are could do. Putting their hands on their hips, for example, is something no dog could physically do... Their paws just don't bend that way. If the animals were doing these extraordinary things with adjustments made to compensate for their physical restrictions, I'd give the book five stars. Or, if the dogs were supposed to be humanoid creatures with animal-like characteristics, and therefore the physical limitations of human-shaped creatures, I'd give it five stars. After all, other than the issue I've already mentioned in this review, this is an amazing book, with a fun and entertaining plot, and an interesting and lovable cast of characters. So, were it not for that issue, it would deserve the full five stars.
  • Astro's Indian Odyssey on June 23, 2016

    Like with the previous books in the series, there is one reason, and one reason only, why I'm reluctant to give this book the full five star rating: the confusion about the realistic capabilities of the dogs, and other animals, in the book. Are they normal dogs who do extraordinary things? Or are they animal-like humanoids? That needs to be established, because if they're ordinary dogs - like I thought they were supposed to be, judging by how they have owners and things - their physical limitations need to be considered, and adaptions made to compensate for those limitations. Other than that issue, this is an amazing book, with a fun and entertaining plot, and an interesting and lovable cast of characters.
  • Liquid on June 26, 2016

    Another well-written book from this author, with interesting and well-developed characters, an exciting plot that will grab your attention from page one and not let go until the end, and fantastic worldbuilding and descriptions.
  • Liselle on June 30, 2016

    Yet another wonderful and well-written book by this author, which makes for a very enjoyable read.
  • The Light Beyond the Storm Chronicles - Book 1 on July 19, 2016

    If you're the kind of person who enjoys erotic dark fantasy, and doesn't shy away from graphic scenes, then you'll love this book! The plot is interesting and moves at a nice pace, the characters are well-rounded and have colourful personalities, and the description is both detailed and well-written.
  • The Shining Citadel - The Light Beyond the Storm Chronicles Book II on July 21, 2016

    I said of the first book that, "If you're the kind of person who enjoys erotic dark fantasy, and doesn't shy away from graphic scenes, then you'll love this book!" I also said that "The plot is interesting and moves at a nice pace, the characters are well-rounded and have colourful personalities, and the description is both detailed and well-written." Well, both those comments are just as true for this book as they were for the first in the series.
  • The Stolen Tower: The Light Beyond the Storm Chronicles - Book III on July 24, 2016

    This is another excellent addition to the series, with fantastic descriptions, wonderful worldbuilding, a great cast of characters, and an interesting plot that moves at a nice pace. If you enjoy fantasy stories, and have no issues with graphic erotic or violent scenes, you'll love this book!
  • Tales of Erana: The Warrior's Curse on July 24, 2016

    An entertaining and well-written tale.
  • Tales of Erana: Myths and Legends on July 25, 2016

    This is an entertaining and well-written collection of tales, which make a great accompanyment to the series.
  • Shattered Mirror - A Poetry Collection on July 25, 2016

    This is a beautifully written collection of poetry, which was a pleasure to read.
  • The Bigfoot Paradox on July 25, 2016

    I thought this was a great book. The characters are interesting, and the plot keeps you guessing, making for an enjoyable read. Fans of paranormal adventures, and stories about monsters from myths and legends, will want to read this book.
  • The Dragon and George on July 25, 2016

    Overall, this was a great book, with a fun cast of characters, and an entertaining plot, which I enjoyed reading. My only real issue with this book was that keep swapping and changing between calling the large lizard a dinosaur and a dragon was confusing and frustrating. The author should have picked one and gone with it.
  • The Qrim Chieftain on July 26, 2016

    This is an interesting and well-written story.
  • A Visit From Oscar: A Short Story About A Neighborhood Possum on July 27, 2016

    This is a cute and amusing little tale, though I feel like the ending could do with a little more. Like a confirmed sighting of Oscar doing something amusing on the night in question.
  • Rudolph Saves Christmas on July 27, 2016

    This story is extremely entertaining and amusing.
  • Grandma and the Easter Storm on July 27, 2016

    This is a lovely little story, which is both a fun read, and a great lesson about respecting nature and its unpredictable moods.
  • Bogles (A Story About Naughty Magical Creatures) on July 27, 2016

    This is a very entertaining book, which children of all ages will enjoy.
  • Kotki on July 27, 2016

    A cute and entertaining read.
  • The Pirates and The Trolls on July 27, 2016

    This is a fun and entertaining little story.
  • Legends of Fire (A Dark Faerie Tale #7) on July 29, 2016

    An excellent addition to the series... Can't wait for the next one!
  • Plateau: Beyond the Trees, Beyond 2012 on July 29, 2016

    This book made for an interesting, and very thought-provoking, read. It felt more like a collection of connected short stories than one entire story though.
  • My Boney Girl on Aug. 06, 2016

    This is a beautifully written, and very touching read.
  • Body Switches on Aug. 09, 2016

    This book is an entertaining read, but also one that will remind you to be grateful for what you have.
  • Today People on Aug. 12, 2016

    For the most part this is an excellent collection of well-written and interesting stories. However, there were a couple of stories I felt needed something more... Like they should have been part of something longer. Still, as I said, most of the stories were excellent, so the book is a great read overall.
  • The Lucky Leprechaun on Aug. 13, 2016

    This is a fun addition to the series. Like with the other books in the series, the characters are interesting and often amusing, and the plot is entertaining. Unfortunately, the other thing this book shares with the other books in the series is the confusion as to whether these are actual animals, or humanoid creatures bearing some resemblance to animals, since they sometimes seem to be one, and at other times seem to be the other. Still, the series as a whole is fun to read, and this book is no exception.
  • Star Minds Chasing Stardom on Aug. 15, 2016

    An excellent addition to the series.
  • The Necromouser on Aug. 15, 2016

    This is an interesting read, which is cute and horrifying at the same time.
  • Shreddy and the Zomb-dogs on Aug. 15, 2016

    I'd somehow missed the fact this was a follow-up to another of the author's story, so ended up reading this one first. I don't feel my reading experience suffered for doing so though. In fact, I actually think this follow-up story is even better than the one it's meant to follow (regardless of which order you read them in). This is a great story, which manages to be cute, funny, and terrifying, all at the same time.
  • Star Minds Interregnum on Aug. 16, 2016

    This is a well-written and entertaining collection of stories, which are a delight to read.
  • Phairyphant on Aug. 18, 2016

    This is a cute and entertaining book, which is a fun read.
  • A Bundle of Dinosaurs: Three Dinosaur Stories on Aug. 20, 2016

    This is a great book! The stories are well-written and entertaining, and the characters are cute and likeable.
  • Pow the Panda, The Case of the Rainbow Dragon on Aug. 20, 2016

    A fun and entertaining read.
  • Steampunk Roo on Aug. 20, 2016

    A fun and entertaining read, with a great cast of characters.
  • Naughty Nanoworms on Aug. 20, 2016

    This is another fun and entertaining read, from a great author!
  • Cruz's Big Secret on Aug. 20, 2016

    A fun and imaginative story.
  • A Lion In The Living Room on Aug. 21, 2016

    A cute little story.
  • Wirra and the Seeds on Aug. 22, 2016

    This story isn't as good as the other one I've read by this author. The ending felt too sudden, and I think it would have been better if Wirra had made more attempts at trying to get the birds to help him with the seeds before rushing in to his trick. Even a naughty spirit should try a few ways of getting his own way before attempting to punish those who won't give him what he wants.
  • A Cats Tale on Aug. 26, 2016

    This is a creative and entertaining read. It wasn't amazing, but I did enjoy it, and look forward to reading more of Amun's adventures.
  • A Cats Tale II Cleo on Aug. 27, 2016

    An enjoyable read, which is a good sequel to the first book in the series.
  • A Cats Tale III Apollo on Aug. 27, 2016

    Another enjoyable addition to the series.
  • A Cats Tale IV-Diana on Aug. 27, 2016

    I enjoyed the first three books in this series, and this one was no exception. However, I would like to point out that a deaf person who loses their hearing after having learned to speak properly will still be able to do so afterwards, unless whatever caused the hearing loss also caused some damage that would cause difficulties with speaking; as a general rule, it's only deaf people who learn to speak with at least some hearing impairment who struggle to make words correctly, since those who have already learned to speak properly already know how to form the words and sounds (though deaf people in general often struggle to control the volume of their voices). Also, while it's true that moving things around in an area with a blind person in it is best avoided, it's not entirely impossible for a blind person to find their way around with new placements of things; there's a lot of frustration and some difficulty in locating things at first when things are moved, but as long as a blind person knows the things have been moved, and where to, that person can adjust to the changes reasonably quickly (though how quickly will depend on the blind person in general).
  • A Cats Tale V, Vish on Aug. 27, 2016

    This was another enjoyable addition to the series. I'm looking forward to when the author is finally in a position to release the rest of Amun's adventures, since I'm eager to learn about his other lives.
  • The Witch's Dog on Aug. 27, 2016

    An excellent book; well-written, and entertaining.
  • De-Witched! on Aug. 27, 2016

    Another excellent read; well-written, entertaining, and a great sequel to "The Witch's Dog" too.
  • Witching Again! on Aug. 27, 2016

    An excellent ending to the trilogy; well-written, entertaining, and a really sweet conclusion.
  • Flint Dog on Aug. 28, 2016

    This is an enjoyable read, with a great ending.
  • Oh Gran! on Aug. 28, 2016

    This is a fun story, with plenty of entertaining scenes, which will amuse young and old readers alike.
  • Stanley and the Football Sock on Aug. 28, 2016

    This is a great book, which is a fun read.
  • The Smelliest Cheese in the World! on Aug. 28, 2016

    This is an amusing little story.
  • A Girl Called Deirdre Duck on Aug. 28, 2016

    This is a very entertaining story, which makes for a sweet and enjoyable read.
  • Animal Rescue Club on Aug. 28, 2016

    This is a cute and fun little story.
  • Escape the Volcano on Aug. 28, 2016

    This is a well-written adventure, which is both enjoyable for the story itself, and interesting for the volcano facts that children can learn while they read it.
  • The Storage Room in the Grey Void on Aug. 29, 2016

    This story is a creative and enjoyable read.
  • #LucysLetter - The Children of the Greenhouse Age on Aug. 29, 2016

    This book is a must read! It's both enjoyable and thought provoking, as well as being beautifully written.
  • The Path of Water (Quests Book 1) on Sep. 03, 2016

    I have enjoyed the other books I've read in this series, but I enjoyed this one even more. All her previous books have given Barb the practice needed to grow as a writer, and this is more obvious in this book than it has been in any other. Excellent worldbuilding, a colourful cast of characters, and great descriptions, all come together to make for a fantastic read.
  • The Path of Fire (Quests Book 2) on Sep. 04, 2016

    This book is another excellent example of how Barb has grown as a writer. Plus, it was interesting getting to see a few of the events from "The Path Of Water" from another point of view, followed by the chance to see what happened to a couple of the characters afterwards. An all round excellent read!
  • Beat the Hackers! on Sep. 04, 2016

    This is a great book, which makes for an exciting and enjoyable read.
  • More Tales of the Southern Kingdoms - volume 2 on Sep. 06, 2016

    This is an excellent and well-written collection of tales, which makes for an enjoyable read, and is a wonderful addition to the series.
  • Oh Auntie! on Sep. 06, 2016

    I loved this book! It's well-written and very entertaining. The story will amuse children and adults alike, whether they're familiar with the way things work on a farm or not.
  • The Jack Russell Adventures (Book 1): The Pet Shop on Sep. 07, 2016

    This is a really cute and entertaining story. The only reason I don't give it the full five stars is because I felt the ending was too sudden. Having also read book two, I know it continues from where this one left off, but I think it would have been better had the two books been combined.
  • The Jack Russell Adventures (Book 2): A New Life on Sep. 07, 2016

    An excellent - and really cute - continuation of Rocky and Rosie's story.
  • The Jack Russell Adventures (Book 3): Santa's Extra Presents on Sep. 07, 2016

    This is a really cute Christmas story, which will bring a smile to any animal lover's face.
  • Oh Grandad! on Sep. 07, 2016

    This book is an amusing and fun read.
  • Into the Vines on Sep. 13, 2016

    I hate writing bad reviews. I know how much work an author puts in to writing a book, and I hesitate to take away their pride in what they’ve created. Unfortunately, there are times when I feel I have to; times when only my policy of always finishing a book I start keeps me reading until the end, and I’d be lying if I gave a glowing review. This is one of those times. It’s a shame, because I think the book has some potential. Unfortunately, for it to reach that potential the author needs to do a lot more research, not to mention some serious re-writes and edits to catch inconsistancies and contraditions in the plot, unnecessary repetition in the dialogue of things mentioned in the description, issues with character behaviour that’s either not realistic for the type of character in the situation they’re in or contradicts previous behaviour, etc.
  • Dylan's Yuletide Journey on Sep. 14, 2016

    This was a creative and entertaining story. It wasn't as festive as I expected though, and I didn't feel we had the full details of why the strawberry juice supply had run out (though we did get most of the story; I just felt some details that could have been added were left out). Still, this was a great short read.
  • Oh Santa! on Sep. 14, 2016

    This is an amusing little story, which could make for a fun holiday read for the whole family.
  • BookElves Anthology Volume 1 on Sep. 16, 2016

    Like with most anthologies, I found that I enjoyed some stories more than others. Also, in the case of this particular anthology, some of the stories didn't feel very festive, some felt like they could do with a few more details added to them, and some had both issues. Still, this was an entertaining collection of stories, which made for a great read.
  • Pig's Big Secret on Sep. 16, 2016

    This is a very creative story, which is an amusing and entertaining read.
  • Rhyming Rabbit's Mischief on Sep. 17, 2016

    This is another creative and entertaining story from this author, and I loved it!
  • Viridian System Sampler: 8 Short Stories on Sep. 18, 2016

    This was a great little collection of flash fiction stories, which are perfect to give you a taste of the world, while making you want to know more. The little explanations of how the stories came about were a nice touch too.
  • The Parting Glass: A Mrs. Meade Mystery on Sep. 18, 2016

    This was a well-written and enjoyable story. It says in the description that it's perfect for fans of Miss Marple style mysteries, and I completely agree.
  • The Oldest Flame: A Mrs. Meade Mystery on Sep. 18, 2016

    This is another enjoyable and well-written cosy mystery from this author; the perfect accompaniment to a nice cup of tea.
  • The Silent Hour: A Mrs. Meade Mystery on Sep. 19, 2016

    Another well-written and enjoyable addition to the series, which is perfect for those who enjoy a cosy mystery with their cup of tea.
  • The Jack Russell Adventures (Book 4): The Challenge on Sep. 20, 2016

    This is my favourite of the stories in this series so far. It's cute, it's funny, and it's well-written. Plus, it teaches a great lesson about how not everyone is good at the same things, and that's just fine.
  • The Jack Russell Adventures (Book 5): The Play on Sep. 20, 2016

    Another cute and entertaining addition to the adventures of Rocky and Rosie.
  • The Princelings of the East on Sep. 21, 2016

    This was a great read, with a plot that moves at a nice pace, and a great cast of characters. I personally think it would have been great if the author had gotten more in to the animal character thing and done things like using "paw" instead of "foot" for example, but that's just a personal opinion thing, so I'm not going to count the fact she didn't against her. Anyway, this was a fun read, with lovable and sometimes entertaining characters, and an interesting plot.
  • The Princelings and the Pirates on Sep. 23, 2016

    This was an excellent second book for the series. I love the characters, and the plot is exciting and interesting. Like with the first book in this series, I think it could have been even more amazing if the author had used more guinea pig terms rather than people words, such as "cavie" instead of "person" for example. However, since I know this is just something I personally think would have been a nice touch, and not doing so doesn't spoil the story in any way, I'm not going to count her not doing so against her.
