I am retired and live in Crete with my husband and two dogs. When we came here I hoped to write more but seem to procrastinate more instead!

A dragon like no other!

I must admit this type of book and style of writing took me completely out of my comfort zone... I did find the first chapter a little heavy going, but appreciate those that seek this style out would probably relish it. However undaunted I progressed to chapter two, and I'm very pleased I did... As the story starts to unfold the writer shows you in great detail, the present situation that the dragons now find themselves in and how this feels wrong to Naydrus. Although the story is still in its early stages, (Chapter seven as I write this,) you are already anticipating a tough time ahead for Naydrus. Her natural instincts are telling her that everything she sees around her concerning the integration of humans and dragons, is wrong especially with dragons being the more subservient of the two. The more I read of this story the more I wanted to read! I want to know what will happen to Naydrus? Will she overcome her natural instincts and bow to the will of the humans, or will she escape the confinements she was born into, to live the life she instinctively knows a dragon should? If dragons and fantasy are what you look for in a good story, then I recommend this one as I'm sure, like me you will love it. Keep your eyes peeled to follow it's progress...

HIRAETH: Insomnia of the heart

Whilst I enjoyed the story and thought the plot had some merit, there were times when I felt as if I had missed something... I'm sure a lot of people would appreciate the cryptic lines at the beginning of each chapter and the poetry in the summing up, but I'm afraid it was lost on me. I did feel that the writer introduced her characters well, and I therefore developed an empathy with them as the story progressed, and I wanted them to succeed in their mission. I would however question why the writer used 'yelp' instead of 'said' during dialogue as I found myself picturing the character saying the sentence using a high pitched voice like a puppy. I was unsure if I had missed something, and this was in fact the way their voices were meant to sound! Apart from that everything else read well, the story was paced well and kept you reading...

Death's Apprentice

Loved it! It's the first time I have ever read a book in one sitting... If you like to let your imagination run riot then this is definitely the book for you. It was exciting and kept me hooked throughout. I also liked the way it dealt with the sadness of death that will inevitably come to everyone eventually and the emotional loss that in time may touch them, as they have to deal with it. There are a few typos and mistakes missed during proof reading, but the story is so good that I was more than happy to over look them as I hurried on through the adventure. Would highly recommend it and will happily look up some of the authors other books.

Mated with my own worst enemy.

The story line follows a Romeo and Juliet theme with the added edge of fantasy thrown in. Neatly done with the werewolve angle. Personally I don't like the abundant use of swear words, but I'm sure it will appeal to the younger audience. I would say it is more teenage romance than fantasy, for those looking for that particular genre, however I only read the first few chapters.

Hidden Magic

I loved the story and the pace... It kept you hooked and wanting to read more. Initially I felt a little overwhelmed by detail, maybe a bit more elaborate than I'd normally choose to read. But the more I read the better it got. Either I got used to the style or the writer found a more comfortable niche for both of us.

Looking forward to reading more!

The Mysterious Eye

Although I was drawn in by the blurb I wasn't hooked on the story after reading the prologue. As it was written in the first person I felt as if I should have felt the loss of the camera more. In order to feel this I probably needed to know more about Grace and why the camera was so important to her. I felt very little empathy with Grace, so I think a lot more back ground information on the character is needed. The story idea is good it just needs more work. Don't rush it, let it unfold slowly.

The Power Trilogy

I really found this book enjoyable. The diving into fantasy has you hooked straight away with the need to keep reading, wanting know where its all going lead. I particularly like the names of the characters and how she had woven a bit of ther back story in as the present one unfolds. You know a bit about each of them within the first chapter. The need to read more is already with you by chapter two,
