The Ordinary Knight and The Invisible Princess: A Tale in Two Parts (English Edition)
The Ordinary Knight and The Invisible Princess: A Tale in Two Parts (English Edition)
Preis: EUR 3,09

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you're looking for a story with a fairy tale feeling, heart and imagination, this is for you., 31. Dezember 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
This book was charming. I liked the way the story unfolded and that the romance between the characters felt natural. My favorite was the invisible princess 8as a character). In some places, I knew what would happen next but that didn't diminish my reading pleasure one bit.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Jinx's Magic (Kindle Edition)
I loved to learn more about the forest and its trees (after all, I'm a studied forester), so I bought this book right after I finished the first volume. And I wasn't disappointed, although this story arc wasn't concluded yet. Jinx and his friends, new and old, touched my heart. I'm eagerly awaiting the final volume of this story.

This book is great but leaves you on a slight cliffhanger. I'm glad I won't have to wait too long for the last part of the series. I really, really like Jinx. He's very down to earth and absolutely real.

Diese Geschichte hat mich so sehr an meine Töchter erinnert als sie noch jünger waren, dass ich aus dem Schmunzeln gar nicht herausgekommen bin. Am liebsten mochte ich die Hexe, am lustigsten fand ich die Namen. Und einen Plüschdrachen hätte ich auch gerne. ;-)

Es wäre toll, wenn es dazu bald eine Forsetzung gäbe.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Für mich das beste Buch des Jahres!, 31. Dezember 2014
WOW! Just wow. The pictures are spectacular, and the history extremely well researched. I loved the way the author managed to insert small details of everyday life despite the dire situation. Everything was explained in a manner that felt natural to the story but made the battle come to life in my imagination.

Beware, this book is not for the faint hearted, after all, nearly 60,000 soldiers died that day. In a couple of places, I felt really, really sick.

***I bought a signed copy directly from the author***

4.0 von 5 Sternen a short and sad read but well worth the time, 30. Dezember 2014
I read this book in one sitting (which isn't hard because it's a short story). The language is lovely, and the main character felt real to me. Her elation at the new job and the annoyance when she had to jump in to help out at the old one was something I could relate to. I just had wished for a different ending.

3.0 von 5 Sternen would have been 5 stars had I liked the main character, 10. November 2014
This was my first book by the author and I received it in a read 4 review program.

The book is extremely well written, the characters are very well rounded and the world is described with enough details to fire up your imagination without bogging it down. David Estes certainly is a great author. However, I really, really struggled with this book. If I'd give my ratings purely based on whether I liked the story or not, this would have been a one star review. But my rating also takes other points into consideration, like the quality of writing and editing, the believability and whether the story kept me turning pages (which it did albeit a little slowly).

The problems I had with this story were these two:
I disliked the main character right from the beginning and never grew warm with him. That's a big thing for every novel. If the reader can't relate to the main character it's much harder to like a book. However, the character was very well written, so this is clearly a matter of personal taste.

The other thing is that after the training phase the MC went through, there's a longish time jump. Normally, this wouldn't be such a big deal for me, but the author kept re-introducing characters from the time he jumped simply claiming they had changed. I felt cheated because I would have liked to find out if that statement is true for myself. And there were parts in the beginning during the training that could have been tightened enough to make room for the additional scenes.

The one thing (well, not really thing but creature) I truly loved: Hex!

So, all in all this is a good book. My advice: try the reading sample to see if you'll like the main character. if you do, this will be a great read for you.


The Ugly Princess: The Legend of the Winnowwood (English Edition)
The Ugly Princess: The Legend of the Winnowwood (English Edition)
Preis: EUR 4,49

5.0 von 5 Sternen easily one of the best books I've read lately, 29. Oktober 2014
WOW! This was easily one of the best books I've read in the R4R program I participated in lately.

The Ugly Princess tells the story of a princess who accepted her ugliness early on. Every time she uses her magic, she gets warts, bumps or boils. But since she's able to help her friends, the animals, with her magic , she doesn't mind most of the time. She only wishes for her father's acceptance -- which he is refusing to give. He wants a beautiful daughter.

I loved the way the heroine stubbornly refused to become beautiful even though she had the option. I enjoyed her interaction with the animals, and loved the way she handled situations that other people would have had big problems with. But most of all, I loved that she knew her worth was not determined by the way she looked but by her actions.

And the best thing about this was, that the message was never preached (although it was a very clear message). As a reader, I had to understand the message because the story was so good I couldn't stop turning the pages.

This is a book every teen should read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Randvoll mit interessanten Artikeln, tollen Gedichten und niedlichen Geschichten, 13. Oktober 2014

Das erste Qindie-Magazin ist randvoll mit Geschichten, Gedichten und Artikeln. Meiner Meinung nach ist es für LeserInnen genauso gut geeignet wie für AutorInnen. Hoffentlich gibt es noch viele weitere Ausgaben.

5.0 von 5 Sternen read in one sitting, 17. September 2014
I made the mistake to peek at this book after a 10 hour drive home from a holiday with my kids. Unfortunately, I couldn't put it down; it was too good. Now, I'm tired and grumpy (as the kids ;-) ). I highly recommend this book and its prequel to anyone who likes intelligent SciFi. The author created a universe I wouldn't like to be born in but it makes for incredible reading. The characters come alive almost instantly, and the problems resonated with me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a great way to learn about this author's works, 12. August 2014
A lovely, poetic story set in the world of other stories by Danyelle Leafty but completely independent of the others. I found myself walking the earth beside the moon feeling her fluttering heart when she faced the Baba Jagas. I’ve read many of the author’s books and not a single one has left me wanting. This is an author to watch.
