Smashwords book reviews by Diane Curran

  • Not Quite Ordinary on Jan. 03, 2012

    Not Quite Ordinary is the story of a 15 year old girl who discovers that she is the descendant of a powerful family of witches and that a prophecy was made that several hundred years ago that she would save the world from the evil witches. It was a quick and relatively enjoyable read. I would recommend it for younger readers, but not as much for adults due to the thin plot line and lack of detail.
  • Tempest (#1 Destroyers Series) on Jan. 07, 2012

    At the beginning of December, I was notified from Librarything, that I had received 4 books. Three of them were young adult fiction and Tempest was the 3rd one that I read and the best that I read. These books all follow a formula. A teen girl discovers a secret about herself that her family has kept to protect her. She becomes angry and disbelieving before she accepts her fate and saves the world. Tempest follows this formula, but in a good way, in my opinion. The characters are well developed and consistent. The story makes sense (well as much sense that it makes that there are people who are destined to become hurricanes!). I would recommend this book to others and would consider reading the other books in the series.
