The Year When Stardust Fell

by Raymond F. Jones

Wonderful. A simple yet intelligent tale of science vs. superstition and reason vs. intuition. It'll make you think, make you hold your breath on the edge of your seat. Probably one of the best free e-books I've read. Fantastic.

The Gray Wolf

by Michael E. Shea

Brief and interesting. Rather short for my taste, but a good read nonetheless.

Ella Eris and the Pirates of Redemption

by Albert Berg

Oh, this book had so much potential. It's a very interesting scenario, with action that kept the story clipping along. It would have been an instant favorite but for a few things.

First, it's full of typos and missed commas. Whether this is the author's fault or not, I don't know, but it's distracting.

Second, there wasn't enough backstory for my taste. The main character, Ella, is a shape-shifter, yet she only uses her power a few times in the book. It seems like it would be a major plot point, but it turns out not to be, which is somewhat disappointing.

Ella finds a magical ring which catapults her into this headlong dash away from a mysterious dark monster... who remains mysterious. Who is he? Why does he want the ring? What does the ring do, and where did it come from, anyway? I'd still like to know the answers.

While it wasn't the epic tale I was hoping for, it was a decent story nonetheless. I read it in three hours, always wanting to know what happened next. A good read, even with its flaws.
