Good

There is a lot of potential here. I did like your plot - it is very unique and I would love to read more. I think you need to work on how to structure your sentences. I found it difficult to get through long texts as a full sentence. There is a lot of unnecessary inner dialogue and repetitiveness. This feels like a first draft (And I say that from experience. It sounds like how I would write my own first draft.). It needs going over and parts need to be changed for the reader to really see what is happening. You have a great story idea and I will be happy to read this again once you have polished to your final draft.

Good work - keep it up! Your skills as a writer will improve as long as you keep writing.

All the best,

Highly Recommend!

This is such a great book, it's very easy to get into and kept me interested throughout. I really hope there is a second book in the pipeline as I would love to read more. Vampire themed books is one of my favourite genres and I can read them easily. I thought the plot was fab! You have a great writing style! I am very intrigued by the magical book all about her life - it gives the book a nice edge. I hope this book gets a lot of reads for you.

All the best,

This is a must read.

If you are a fan of zombie novels, then you should definitely give this a go!

It is a very good read so far, as I’m on chapter 19 and really loving it. The story moves nicely after the first five chapters. I thought it seemed a bit slow at first but once passed that mark, it kept me hooked. There are a lot of moments, especially with the flashbacks, making the reader want to read more. You create a great description in the reader’s mind, it has kept me intrigued and entertained. This can be tough at sometimes, as my attention usually wavers after finding plot holes and mistakes. There are only the odd mistakes here and there. Very minor, I’d say. Some punctuation and capitalisation needs improving and there’s a large paragraph as a whole sentence. I am excited to see how the rest of the story unfolds. Your writing style is very good too! And, I love how the view points change. Overall, a really thrilling read!

If you wouldn’t mind, would you be able to check out my book too? The Hunter Series - Penelope. I’m hoping to get some more reviews/feedback to be able to improve.

Wow!

This is a book that really hooks you from the first page and its very hard to put down. There are very few grammatical errors and it seems very polished. I am very impressed with how the plot guides you and I found myself really rooting for your main character's. I've reached up to Chapter 15 and my favourite character so far is Nick! I like your fight scenes and how detailed they are - but sometimes it delays the story moving forward. Overall - well done Alex! Your book is amazing and I am so excited to see how this book ends!

All the best,

Oh Wow!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This is an incredibly enjoyable read! It is a heart warming story that I found difficult to put down when I started reading. It is well written, the characters are well-developed and incredibly emotional. I would love to see this as a movie and can see this getting published!

I wish you all the best,

Enjoyable read.

The first chapter of your story hooked me to read on. It is a great opening chapter, where Devon has a very wayward personality. He likes to sleep around, go to clubs and all sorts. Throughout the book, he discovers the word of God and chooses to change his immoral lifestyle to a respectful and modest man. I am not overly religious. I don't follow any particular religion. However, I can see why people do love God and choose to go to church and whatnot. There were some parts I found difficult to read, some things I disagreed with but we all have opinions and our own ideas about life. I can appreciate how hard you have worked on this book. Overall, I did enjoy it and would recommend to potential readers.

There were some spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes but it didn't affect my ability to read this book to the end.

Well done!

All the best,

Katie xx

This book deserves to win Inkitt's competition. Grammar and punctuation can be easily worked on with their help. You have the story and the creativity. I really hope this book does well for you!

Oh wow - a must read!

This book sent me on a whirl-wind of emotions. It was incredible. After reading the first chapter, I was so hooked, I spent the rest of the day reading it till the end. I love the way you have written it, the snarky and witty way Clair speaks made me laugh and smile occasionally. There are also certain parts that brought tears to my eyes. There's a lot of real emotions in this book and real issues. Clair's childhood made me feel so bad for her and the way her brother treated her was disgusting. Even the way the mother treated her as if it was the poor little girl's fault is even more shocking.

While extremely engrossed in your book, I forgot to watch out for grammar and spelling. Which is a first for me, so I commend you on your writing for keeping me focused on your book. I really hope you get this published because it is a must read. I will also share this to my facebook page, in the hope you get much-deserved reads.

All the best,

Katie xx

Great children's book

This is a great children's book. I think Sockland has a beautiful concept. Arnie takes you on this incredible journey to discover where socks go to. It was a good read. There were a few spelling mistakes, grammatical errors but with a proof-read - easily changed. However, I thought for a children's book I thought it was exceptional long, with long paragraphs of description, some of which unnecessary. Unfortunately, it stops the story going forward. I'm unsure if children will stay engaged for long. I am sure if you tighten your work up, this can be an exceptional book. I wish you all the best!

Would it be okay if you take a look at my book: Penelope - The Hunter Series. I'm looking for some more reviews/feedback. It would be much appreciated. https://www.inkitt.com/stories/fantasy/115616?started_reading=true

A good attempt

I thought this was a good start but this needs some work. The plot is okay but I felt a bit bored at times.

There is a lot of potential here but it does need going over. Unfortunately, there are a lot of errors which make it hard to read. Sadly, I couldn’t complete the book because of this. Grammar, punctuation and spelling need to be worked on. There are a lot of sentences that don’t need to be so long and can be stopped with a period. I would recommend reading your book out loud as it is easier to spot the mistakes. Try to focus on the flow and the pace. Also try to find new ways to describe the scene and the way someone speaks. It’s perfectly OK to say ‘he said’ or ‘she said’ sometimes. I found ‘he informed’ too grating when it’s used all the time. I thought your characters were slightly robotic and bland. Unfortunately I don’t have any feelings for them, not yet anyway.

However, if this is the first book you have written then it is a good draft. So well done. It takes a lot of patience to write a book. It can take a person such a long time to get it perfect. But if you keep reviewing and editing until it is the best it can be - it could be a good book. I look forward to reading it again when its polished.

All the best,

Katie xx
