Good read!

a review by Joey B I really liked Dakota Divided. Not only is it funny, but it is the perfect snapshot of the ups and downs of being a teenager. Dakota's language and delivery is what makes the book so funny, and the way it takes...

Out of this world

unusually interesting

a review by Lindz After reading the novel, I thought it was very interesting. The novel itself is an adventerous sci-fi plotline with a twist of romance. It also is very futurtistic, even though in the story the dont know if the world has "ended" yet. Overall, this...

Not suitable

a review by buttonsandbows Sorry, but I feel Ms. Aidinoff's story of Eden is horrible. To depict God as a big ol' meanie who is controlling, unthoughtful, unloving and is given to temper tantrums - that's just WRONG!! And having the Serpent somehow becoming a tender lover for...

Scandalous Rumors & Intriguing Writing: A Diamond of a Novel
