This book has meaning from an author who, herself, has went through domestic violence. Main character, Kelly, is severely beaten by her estranged husband and immediately files a protective order against him. This is only the beginning. Kelly is believable as a domestic violence victim and Moretimer gives spot-on descriptions of her time in the hospital after the horrific attack, as well as her time in court. However, there were some things I wasn’t fond of. There were many editing problems, especially toward the end. I read the ebook edition and some sentences were split. Half of the sentence was in one paragraph, in the middle of text, while the other half was somewhere else, making some of the actions of the characters hard to interpret. This wasn’t intended, but more of a formatting error. The dialogue was well played out, but I have to say that I giggled when I read the word, manhood. Also, The book leaves the reader with unanswered questions. I know that a Book Two is coming, so maybe that was Moretimer’s intention. There was a surprising turn of events toward the end, but I saw the last scene coming a mile away. If you want to read a short novel with suspense and intrigue, (my favorite type), then give this one a try.

This is the first story that’s part of an erotic series. I won this book in a giveaway. Not my normal genre, but I thought I’d give it a try. First of all, it is riddled with errors. I was shocked to find that it wasn’t edited very well. If you overlook that, it’s just a story about a girl (Melody) who falls in love with a guy (Nate), but he is an Incubus who takes the form of the perfect looking man. The character of Melody is described as shy in the very beginning, but turns seductive in an instant, saying anything and giving herself to Nate without modesty, meaning that the characters are not believable at all. Skip this one if erotica isn’t your genre.
This is a short story which is very nicely written. The thing is, it’s not the genre I normally read, so I have no other stories to compare it to. It ends in a place where I wanted to know what was going to happen next. I have no idea if this story is going to continue, but if it did, it would be interesting. I will admit, it kind of grossed me out when the main character was making out with the creature who had a lizard-like tongue. If you are into erotic science fiction, this story is for you.

Elven Jewel (Hunters of Reloria)
This is my first fantasy read, so it’s hard for me to get into this type of theme. Frankly, this is not my “thing”, so to speak. However, the world that Beaumont has created knocked my socks off! I find fantasy to be very challenging if one should write such genre. Hard to keep track of characters, worlds, events, etc. I had some difficulty with the characters, because the names were similar. Randir, Fandri, Fendi, Baja, Raja, and the fairies had the same names, but with “la” after them. The “la” actually helped me, because I knew it was a fairy with that suffix added. I will say, however, that I was able to keep track of the events that unfolded and I absolutely loved the characters of Sienna and Asher, as well as the trolls (their dialogue was quite enjoyable). I was also able to visualize this world with the clear descriptions and actions of the characters. Plus, I was very happy that this book had an excellent tie-up at the end, since another book follows with the story. With a little bit of romance thrown into a novel about war in the fantasy world of Reloria, I think fans of this genre would love this book! What an imagination Kasper Beaumont has. Hers is a gift to fantasy readers out there.
