Bloody Brilliant!

OK, that's not the most well-thought-out review Bernita will ever get on her book but it's an honest one: this book is bloody brilliant!

It's an ebook, so although I was able to read it lounging back with my feet up I couldn't read it in bed. I still read it in a single day. I couldn't stop.

If you like Kim Harrison and Kelley Armstrong, you'll like this. Bernita has her own take on the paranormal and her own voice, which is simple and supple with occasional jolts as a word, phrase or simile grabs you.

Lillie, her main character, is very hard on herself. I did wonder how much Bernita had modelled the character on herself! At times I felt irritated when the main characters lapsed into distrust of each other once again or Lillie made a bad decision but these are nitpicks.  I can't wait for the next book.

This was not an ARC. I bought this book with my own money and it was worth every penny. You too can buy it here.

You're going to make me buy an eReader, aren't you? LOL. Sounds like a blast!

This sounds like my kind of book! I'd better look into an eReader, whatever the hell that is!

maybe genius: I read it on my Beloved's huge laptop, so an ereader isn't required! (Mind you, I do want one!)

nitebyrd: you can read it on any pc!

I just realized what an eReader is (Kindle) and was coming back to ask if I could just download it onto a PC. Thanks for the info, I shall be downloading tonight!

Bernita said...

Fairy, thank you.
I am so desperately glad the book didn't disappoint you.

nitebyrd, you also need some free software called Adobe Digital Editions. Then you're set!

Bernita, quite the contrary! It must be very nerve-racking knowing people are reading your book but it's been a big hit so far.

Yes, it's a great read. You can download free ereaders of various types. Most sites offer you a pdf or text version as well as kindle or whatever types are out there with proprietary software. (For the record, I think proprietary software for ereadersis idiotic.)

ww, the epub format is quite nice on the laptop - you can set it to fairly large and sit back and enjoy!

I'm glad you enjoyed Bernita's book too.
