Smashwords book reviews by yvonne yap

  • The Robber Knight on May 16, 2014

    One of the best free book I've read so far and I've reads a lot so there!
  • The Church of the Wood: A Faerie Story on May 23, 2014

    A beautifully written enchanting tales.....read as if you are under a faerie's spell..take a walk down its path and read for yourself.I don't mind paying for this but am glad it is free.
  • Knights: The Eye of Divinity on July 24, 2014

    The knights here are nothing like King Arthur's court. Read more like a fantasy setting smashed with Harry Potter. A good read that is full of suspend. Am surprised of its lack of positive review. This book is a rare gem indeed, much better than those highly rated one.
  • The Lord of the Plains on Aug. 26, 2014

    This book is totally riveting! A must read for all fantasy story lovers. Am glad that I can go straight to the second book. It's been a long time since I am able to to find such a gem.
  • Long Days in Paradise - The First Book of the Shards of Heaven on Sep. 08, 2014

    A very engaging read. The world of Domain seems interesting. Hope Jorden will shape up his character better and stronger in the subsequent book. Taf is endearing. Will definitely read the second book.
  • Cursed (Cursed Magic Series, Book One) on Sep. 30, 2014

    It's an enjoyable read....I think it is more suitable for those who like romance fantasy. I like the lead character. Will be getting the second book even though the exchange a bit steep for me at 3.5!
  • Autumn's Ravage on Nov. 06, 2014

    An interesting book but I feels that too much dwelling on the non-main character in the beginning...Just when I got to like them, they had to be killed off! Hope the second book will be just as interesting if not more.
  • The Greylands: Volume I on Dec. 12, 2014

    Something compelled me to give this book a try, though at first I am reluctant due to its confusing synopsis which don't really tell what the story is about. Anyway, I am glad I did and glad too that I read on though I was tempted to give up in the beginning. I think Susan writes beautifully and the story (reads like a pilgrimage story) to me really gladden my heart and encourages me in my own journey. Thus I am reminded that it is not by my own might, but by His grace that I shall hope to finish this race. Good job! If you like fantasy, whether you are a Christian or not, you will enjoy this book,
  • Sanctuary on Feb. 10, 2015

    A very well written fantasy tale....makes me almost wish to live in the Sanctuary myself. The emotions of the characters are very well defined. Hope there will be a sequel.
  • Sanctuary on Feb. 10, 2015

    A very well written fantasy tale....makes me almost wish to live in the Sanctuary myself. The emotions of the characters are very well defined. Hope there will be a sequel.
  • Slave Empire - The Crystal Ship on April 21, 2015

    It's an exciting read but too heavy duty on the romance side...not much character development for other character except for the two main one. Am wondering if I should get the third one...the Shrike's secret seems to be used as a carrot to us donkeys...err..I mean readers..
  • Assassination Day on May 14, 2015

    Wow....this is really of one of the best series I had read and it's totally free! Frankly speaking, I do not mind paying for it as it's even better than a lot of paid book. Really enjoyed this third installment. The 'suspension bridge' part had me rolling on the floor..Give it a try, you won't regret it.
  • Guardian on June 16, 2015

    A fast paced adventure book. Character need more development though.
  • Yin and Yang: A Fool's Beginning on July 01, 2015

    A very reverting tale...read like a kungfu story to me...will keep you wanting for more...
  • Secrets of the Elders (Chronicles of Acadia: Book I) on July 30, 2015

    A good fantasy read full of your usual gnome, adventure, strange land and creatures. Took me a while to understand the description of the land they are living in though..Wish the second book is cheaper as its 4 times the exchange rate over here.
  • Guardians of the Light (Book One of The Nebril Riverland Chronicles) on Nov. 11, 2015

    A very good adventure story. Well written and exciting. Hope the second book come out soon.
  • Chronicles of Den'dra: A Land Torn on Nov. 18, 2015

    Wow...this is one good read...I am an avid fantasy reader and could seldom find good enough material to capture my attention till the last page....but for this one, I wish it can go on and on. Good story line, great likeable characters including the side one. Fast paced and exciting. Can I seriously know when is the next one?
  • Bacorium Legacy on Dec. 16, 2015

    It takes some time for me to get into the story and a very long one at that...Its a good read, thank you for making it free.
  • The Chosen And the guardians on Feb. 03, 2016
    (no rating)
    Need a lot of editing....
  • The Sword and The Raven, Part One on Feb. 11, 2016

    A good old fantasy kind of story. Enough suspend to keep you glued till the end. Need some editing though.
  • Pagewalker on April 27, 2016

    Please have some respect to other people religion and stop swearing in the name of Jesus Christ....I can't get past all these swearing...
  • The Guardians Book 1: Path to Vengeance on May 03, 2016

    Great sci-fi...Am so glad to discover this book only now thus do not have to keep waiting for the next book. Good story and characters. Will keep you glued.
  • The Guardians Book 5: Grand Master on May 31, 2016

    I had read through the 5 Guardians books with much joy. Can't believe it is free. Going through the entire space adventure with Grogaan and his group had been exhilarating. The trials, adventure and joy are very well depicted. Hope it does not end here but will continue on to the next generation. Kudos!
  • Arianna's Tale: The Beginning on June 23, 2016

    Arianna seems to have the kind of life that every girl dream of that is to have the attention of so many good looking guy. Interesting story and fast paced. A good read.
  • Escape from Endeavor on July 27, 2016

    A very nice and unique adventure science fiction story. I like the characters but find an alien demon kinna weird. Need a bit of editing and the ending kinna abrupt. I mean I don't even know if it's ended or did I miss out some pages? Anyway, a good book to get lost in. Hope the second book will be out soon. Do give it a try.
  • Destiny Scorns on Aug. 05, 2016

    An interesting story. Would have been much better with some good editing. Some of the dialogue running together making it unclear who is speaking and the flow of the story is also unclear. I felt like reading thru a veil at time but an interesting read nevertheless. Do work on the second book.
  • Everlasting Flame on Sep. 01, 2016

    A great book to get yourself lost in....Hope the second book will be out soon.
  • Wingborn on Sep. 19, 2016

    A very good read. Interesting character and story line. Make me wish to be a rider too...Hope to the second book will come out soon.
  • Clan of Redemption on Sep. 29, 2016

    A very good work for a novice. Interesting story and engaging characters. Need a good edit though as it's frustrating to read through the simple grammar and typo mistake. Imagine this (page 107) - hat is my main job. Surely you can spot this kind of mistake yourself. You have talent here so hope you will continue this story.
  • The Chronicles of Jonathon Postlethwaite : The Seed of Corruption on Dec. 06, 2016

    Wow....this book started slowly (I nearly gave up reading in the beginning) but ended with a bang! Very imaginative with interesting characters and story line. Yes, will be waiting for the second book impatiently. Need some edit though.
  • Aiden's Quest on Dec. 18, 2016

    An interesting story, a bit too philosophical for my taste though...I find the ending a bit hanging...
  • The Books of Knowledge on Dec. 27, 2016

    An interesting adventure story. The ending though is quite condensed and would be better had it been more elaborated. Thank you for this book.
  • Where Foundlings Hide on Jan. 11, 2017

    Wow....this book is seriously good. Interesting characters and story line. Can't wait for the next book...
  • Askaro of the Falcon on Jan. 13, 2017

    A delightful adventure tale....wish it was longer. A second installment would be interesting.
  • Fear and Aggression on Feb. 06, 2017

    I like everything about this book better than the other one...it's though provoking in a sense. I would prefer the ending to be less hanging though...
  • I Got'cha! on Feb. 08, 2017

    I had read a few series of this book sometimes back and was much surprised to learn that there's new title! Now my problem would be to find out which book I stop at....I just want to say a big thank you to Mr Wighton for making these books free. I enjoyed them tremendously! I think these books are suitable for reader of all ages especially those who love adventure in their heart.
  • The Children of Isador on March 03, 2017

    This book was wow! The old fashion LOTR type of fantasy where a group of characters (some of them flawed) came together, bonded despite their differences to save the world. I would prefer the introduction about these characters instead of the land for it would be much more interesting. I desperately hope there will be a second book to see all the characters come back together again. Appreciate if all the author's other works could be made available here too. Thank you for this great read....(still got some typo by the way).
  • Grave Girl on March 28, 2017

    I stumbled upon this book quite by accident as I am not a horror story fan....but this is quite an interesting story and I believe the writer writes wonderfully. Would be interesting to follow the plot in the second book. I prefer more balance though, like more light to the darkness.
  • Aydy's Fiddle - The Memory Thief on May 16, 2017

    A feel good story...actually makes you want to hear the violin music. Hope the second book will be here soon.
  • Cage of Deceit (Reign of Secrets, Book 1) on May 31, 2017

    A nice read, story flows very smoothly with strong lead characters. The story line is pretty predictable though. The main characters seems to be acting much older than their age. Reads more like a romance than a fantasy. Hopefully the second book is less predictable.
  • A Dark Faerie Tale Books 1 & 2 on May 31, 2017

    For a free book, this one is really worth reading. Full of adventure and interesting characters. My only problem is this seems to be a very long series.....I do not like to go beyond book 3 as by then I will be bored....
  • Jepaul on June 20, 2017

    What a fantastic read....long enough to satisfy my insatiable reading appetite and its free. An exciting adventure story that build on comradeship and fantasy creatures. You will not regret reading this.
  • The Ring of Eman Vath on July 10, 2017

    An epic story. Luv how the main characters came together but like the girl best. Fast paced and exciting with interesting story line. You will not regret giving this a try.
  • Oberon's Children on July 18, 2017

    This is a fantastic story. Unique and on its own. I hope there will be a sequel. I am not ready to let go of all the main characters yet.
  • Romana's Freedom (Soul Merge Saga Book 1) on Aug. 10, 2017

    What a lovely book. You writes like a pro so I definitely do not think this is your first book. Can't wait for the second book. Hope you put it here asap. Strong main character and interesting story line.
  • Akairya: First Half of the Fractured Soul on Aug. 16, 2017

    A wonderful story of young Akairya battling odds that's been lined up against her. Adventure story of good battling evil. Will look forward to the second book.
  • The Race on Aug. 29, 2017

    This had been a very uplifting story to me. A bit like Narnia + Hunger Game. I like all the characters and could really relate to them as I share their faith. You will either like this or need this. Hope you find something more at the end of it. Can't wait for the second installment.
  • The Defender of Rebel Falls: A Medieval Science Fiction Adventure on Sep. 07, 2017

    Wow...this book is a great read....a great adventure story with a touch of fantasy. This book should be put into the fantasy category as well. Anyway, I love all the characters here esp the main one. A fast paced and interesting story. Kudos to the writer....looking forward to the second book.
  • Master of None on Sep. 18, 2017

    I missed reading the first book and jumped straight into this one. Glad I can still follow but would definitely recommend reading the first book first. A very intense story, thoughts provoking and in line with my beliefs. Da Vincci Code in the opposite. Great work!
  • The Amplified: Book One In The Amplified Trilogy on Sep. 26, 2017

    Intense and exciting. Though a bit like Divergent, but still a worthy read in its own right. Looking forward to the second book.
  • Conspiracy of Bones (And the Beat Goes On) on Oct. 04, 2017

    An intense and exciting story. Very well researched. Good plotting and writing. Definitely a good read....now go and read the "Good News".
  • The Carbynarah Chronicles: Book 1 on Nov. 10, 2017

    a very exciting story....great read
