This is what has happened to me over the past few months - having started a new job I have had to put reviewing, blogging and even reading on hold while I found my feet. As a result, I have a pile of books and eBooks roughly the size of Mt Everest (and that is only a very slight exaggeration)to wade through. Not to mention a lot of very patient writers waiting for reviews.
In cases like this it can be tempting to do one of two things: either just hit the delete button on everything or write a quick, generic, 'it was nice' review without actually having read the book. The former is a cop out and the latter does a huge disservice to both my reputation and the work of the writer.
I started with Kiera's Quest and was pleasantly rewarded with a most enjoyable novella. Rather than a young damsel in distress, it is the hero in need of rescuing. Zakk has been turned into a plastic doll by the obligatory - but highly entertaining - Wicked Witch. And it is up to Kiera to set him free.
Perfectly pitched in tone and style for the challenging tween market - too old for kiddy stories, too young for Twilight - Kiera's Quest is a great choice for a 10 - 12 year old girl looking for her first foray into either fantasy or more mature plot line. Enough romantic suggestion to raise a smile (or a giggle, depending on your age)but not so much that parents need to worry, this is a well crafted story and I suspect the beginning of an ongoing adventure that will keep many entertained.
