Shawn Weisser said this collection of fractured fairy tales is one You Could Read.
"I love fractured tales, or fables and fairy tales that have been altered...I think that the stories could even be used in an educational setting to teach high school or collegiate level students about fractured tales (literature) or socioeconomic issues in our world today. They could be used as a commentary on life..."
Becky gave William's chilling novel 5 Tombstones! Excellent!
"As mentioned previously, Enter Death, Stage Right is the second of a trilogy. Although I am looking forward to the conclusion of this series, I find myself wishing for more than three books. While I enjoyed the first book, the action and suspense in this one had me utterly riveted, forcing me to read it in one sitting. Mr. Veselik is proving to be a masterful architect of a classic style not seen much anymore, and I am impatiently awaiting the final installment of this trilogy."
"THE FAIR AMAZON is a delightful read. Janis Susan May does a wonderful job of bringing the Regency period to vivid life in this story. We have our heroine, Georgina, regardless of what she's been through, she always remains a lady. The more time Trevor spends with Georgina and Diana, the more he can't help comparing the two of them. After everything, this is a romance and we have a wonderfully romantic ending, complete with heartfelt sigh. If you enjoy a good Regency with a wonderful ending, don't miss this story."
"I thought this was a great book. Sunny as his klutzy self is funny, making his first transformation into the Guardian even more surprising. Sunny is not a typical hero, being small, wimpy, and rather accident prone. But instead of laughing at him and his clumsiness, I rooted for him— especially when he was not in his Guardian form—since he was only doing his best to help his friends...and save the universe.
This book has lots of action, lots of humour, and lots of funny and interesting characters that kept me engaged through the whole book."
"The writing of these stories is among the best that I have read in quite a while. I read through this 300 plus page book in a very short time. Sometimes short stories can be a let down because by the time they become really interesting, they are over. These stories start off exciting from page one.
In my opinion, the final story "The Other Side of the Desert" by Jessica L. Murray is a real triumph. Not quite a fairy tale and not quite a bible story, this take on the tale of the much maligned Lilith is thought provoking.
This collection of stories is one of the best books I have read this year and I recommend it to anyone who loves well told stories with a high dose of darkness."
MarthaE said Stephen's novel is one You Need To Read.
"This is a remarkably fun and fast sci fi! Full of action and very interesting and varied characters!..The tale is action packed and fun! If you like sci fi fantasy with quirky characters and lots of humor this is a great book to pick up and enjoy!"
Heather gave Michelle's paranormal novel 4.5 Books.
"This is the biggest surprise I’ve read so far as a reviewer. I absolutely could NOT put this book down! Read it in one sitting because I HAD to know what happened...
All the characters had weaknesses and flaws that made them human. I really liked Romana. Delainey had moments when he annoyed me with his attitude, but I knew why he was what he was, so kudos to the author for making him so real!...all loose ends were neatly tied up with a bow. Did I mention I read this in one sitting? Until after midnight? I definitely recommend this author – and anything else she writes!"
