Two minds

I read that because when I saw it I was worried.
But I needn't have been we had the same idea but took it in completely different directions.
A very early draft of 'Winter' had Elementals in but I dismissed them and went down the Mother Nature route. They do appear later on in the series but not as you have done.
Nice to know there is someone out there that thinks like me lol.
Other than that really enjoyed it. As with your other work beautifully written.
Unfortunately I cant put 'Winter' on here other than a short sample as I think you would enjoy it.

I enjoyed this. As many have said it is short but I noticed that it has been published so that might explain that.
It took a while to get going and I have to admit in the first chapters I skipped as they repeated. It could do with tightening up in places.
Certainly a good read and well done. Nice that there was no gratuitous sex and the violence was handled very well. Still chilling without being graphic.
Good job, well done.

loved

I really liked this . I found the information dumping hard to absorb. This is a common mistake so don't be hard on your self. I had to learn not to do it and I had very harsh critics.
I also think she would have had more interaction with Matt before everything happened. Maybe built their relationship while at school. Otherwise why would she automatically trust him. Maybe add a bit more of her domestic situation to build the tension.
Apart from that really loved it. I haven't read any witch stories before and this was delightful and well thought out.

I liked this it was very different. It does however have some technical issues. You need to show not tell. Nearly all chapter one was tell and very long paragraphs. Breaking it up with dialogue is always good. Maybe a witty bit of chatter of the children comparing each other and who they take after, who is the best, prettiest etc my children do that all the time.
I liked that you added in another language I love that sort of thing so thank you.
The next technical issue is it starts in first person and then in chapter five changes to third person.
Other wise a nice gentle read. That made me chuckle in places.

This was lovely. So emotional as she said goodbye to the boy she loved.
I liked the way she spoke in Spanish with the translation that you went to that trouble. Nice touch.
It might have been nice to read the bit when he came home halfway through. Explore what she was doing, how they had both had to grow up so quickly.
I would suggest you get someone with English as a first language just to go through it and pick up any discrepancy in translation.
But really lovely highly recommend.

I enjoyed this first chapter but felt maybe the first chapter or maybe first two chapters could be about why there dragons were taken away. Then maybe why her dad had the book what did he do to earn it was he good, was he promised his children could have their dragons back .
Then automatically you have her reason to behave the way she does you have the outline for your plot. If that makes sense.

show don't tell

Nice story but as others have said the paragraphs are long. This could be corrected if you show the reader rather than tell the reader. This was always drummed into me when I was learning how to write. You might find it easier to write if you changed the perspective. Maybe try it in the third person see if that works better.

This was an amazing twist on the Vampire genre. The story, characters and plot were amazing and it dragged you in immediately.
What this needs to make it brilliant rather than amazing is a good edit. The spelling was poor and just running spell check through would have corrected a lot of it.
The tenses were often off but first drafts often have this fault.
There was a lot of telling and not enough showing.
Again all of this could be sorted by a good edit by some one who knows what they are doing.
Then this would be absolutely fantastic.

This was possibly the saddest most brilliant piece of writing I have read in a long time.
It was so well done with its astonishing insight into the world of a lonely girl who although was physically bullied it was the apathy that surrounded her that made this the amazing piece of writing that it is.
Showing that too do nothing is as destructive as landing a physical punch.

This started so well and the main character was strong. But what was her motivation. Yes we know she wants freedom but why what does she want to do with it once she gains it. Then she meets her mate and suddenly she abandons whatever her plan was.
It would be nice to know more of her thoughts. Surly finding her mate is just another form of captivity no matter who he is. The palace didn't seem guarded she wasn't watched why couldn't she just walk out.
It just got predictable.

Wolf heart

This was a nice werewolf story with a twist.
The technical writing needs some work. The paragraphs are far too long and make reading hard work.
Although the world building was good in places it wasn't consistent. All I ever knew about Steven was he had green eyes. You need to describe the characters all the way through not in one lump at the beginning. I liked Cora as a main character she allowed me to empathise with her and so engage in her story.
I think with some editing this could be amazing.

Its okay to put it in as it is fundamental to the plot and story but this is fiction. Read as escapism so always bare that in mind. You don't want to offend your readers.

Trials

I will be perfectly honest if I wasn't reading this for the lift I would have stopped at chapter three. Without a comment or review I would have moved quietly on without fuss.
The book I was promised in the blurb I didn't get. I don't know why it had all the elements to be great. It just didn't capture my imagination. The main character was insipid at best. She starts off without her memory after 15 chapters I still as a reader don't know why so it becomes irrelevant. As a character she doesn't progress. She just drifts about without a purpose. We are told she spends twenty years. Can I say that again twenty years with a man she doesn't love because she cant remember how to cook. She eventual becomes a vampire Queen but again why?
The character who was interesting we find out nothing because it is written in the first person from the point of view of the least interesting character. So we have a brilliant moody handsome vampire swoon. Sadly that is it we don't know why he protects her marks her makes her his mate etc.
We have a book of vampire rules which is introduced at the beginning and sort of forgotten. The main character does abide by these rules but not by using the book. I wanted to read that book.
For me it lacked substance. I think a back story would help and I don't mean about the human husband I would personally take that out completely.
This needs a good ruthless edit, early chapters are repetitive. With a lot of telling not showing although later on you do get to grips with that with some great dialogue.
The plot and idea are unique and clever the execution and story telling needs a rethink.
Having read the other reviews lots of people like it. So with some work it could be amazing. As it is now if it came across my agents or publishers desk it would be a no.
I am sorry it isn't more positive. You have loads of positive reviews so yes I could of said something nice and meaningless but that wouldn't move you or your writing forward.
Give her a burning reason to do the things she does. Being attracted to mister moody isn't enough. Again I think it needs some back story.

I liked this it was different with a strong female lead. I also liked that you were brave enough to do the whole thing in just her point of view. This is very hard to do so congratulations.
I only gave four for writing style as you are aware that paragraphs are too long and you need to show not tell.
I.E in chapter twenty three she talks about the doctor. Why not show that conversation and her interaction with the doctor instead of her telling us.
If this is your first go at writing a novel then congratulations you have done an amazing job. The story kept up its pace with no obvious filler chapters slowing it down. The plot twist and turned with an explosive ending.

Both

I have read both books now and I now feel I can write an honest review. I only gave three stars for plot because I wasn't sure what the actual plot was.
The first book started with a lot of promise. An intriguing concept.
It was interesting and engaging as these two totally different people interacted.
I still don't know why the second woman was introduced as she didn't move the plot or the story forward.
There was a lot of repetition.
However the world building was amazing and very convincing, transporting the reader to this untamed, wild planet.
In short it needs some serious and brave editing. If it doesn't move the plot forward no matter how good the writing remove it. My first agent explained that one along with my editor.
The second book was more of the same. The pregnancy being the main story line but this needs to be explained and explored more throughly to make the claims believable.
Current world views and politics should be avoided if you don't want to offend your readers or date your book.

Okay

So this isn't my thing at all. It just seems to be trendy at the moment to have a same sex couple somewhere in the story. To be honest it doesn't add anything in fact it probably turns the majority of people away. That certainly seems to be the reaction from the reviews I have read.
Yes, it is well written but I have read this story by other authors and it has been done better. Tani Hanes on Wattpad has a swim series and it is excellent. Making it same sex isn't enough there needs to be something more.

I didn't understand why she kept going back to Lady Harper. It wasn't like she was being compelled to with all the information she had she didn't need too. After all her brother was far away and safe. I was waiting for her moment of enlightenment but it never came.

Bored

This started brilliantly but twenty two chapters in and the protagonists still haven't met. Too many unnecessary flash backs chapters that repeat and don't move the story on. After such a great start it got boring and honestly I lost interest.
This is a common mistake of new authors and a good editor would cut out all the chapters that aren't needed e.g the mothers point of view it didn't move the plot forward so why put it in. The flash backs didn't move the story on so cut them or write the scene properly.
We found outing the fist chapter that her father was cruel we didn't need another four chapters telling us that.
We know Hunter is weak and damaged in the first time you introduce him so why do we need four or so chapters telling us that.
I gave up after twenty two chapters as nothing had happened and you had lost momentum.
A readers time is precious don't squander it.
