Présentation de l'éditeur

Maya has been an Amazon for three years and has settled in as a critical member of the village. The companion shortage has improved, but all the Amazon villages are still under a lot of stress, and both nerves and relationships are beginning to fracture.

It was the worst possible time for a major demon incursion.

This is a novel of 100,000 words and is the second of the Amazon series.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Same Old 7 mars 2014
Par B. Ronalds - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This author's books can be entertaining the first time, but he/she's terrible at variety. All the characters are just reused and replaced in another environment. The themes are always the same and the main character is always a smart ass in some place they don't belong. The author is just showing they have no imagination or talent beyond reduce reuse and recycle. It's boring.

I thought the character archetype worked better in the Madison Werewolves story but when you take the same character and similar plots and reuse them in almost every book, it shows a serious lacking in creativity and discredits my respect for any talent the author might have. I had these same thoughts after reading the first Amazon novel by Roseau, and Fitting In; just reproductions of the same thing, and I see similar complaints in comments on Roseau's other novels. I applaud this author's ability to come up with original settings and circumstances, but the characters just really need some differentiation.

Until this author shows that they have more than one bag of tricks up their sleeve, and a little bit more creativity, I probably won't be purchasing anything by them again.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing 2 mars 2014
Par L. Taylor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
First off, I don't care about the gender or private behavior of the author. In general, I have enjoyed most of the books written by this author under all of the various pen names that I'm aware of. Unfortunately this book just isn't up to the usual standard and I don't recommend it.

The story starts three years after the events of the first book with the main character, Maya, still the Queen's Companion, having taken over much of the non-fighting aspects of the Amazon leadership. However, she still trains like the rest of the Amazon companions, but due to natural disinclination and a late start she's not getting any better and has plateaued as a fighter well below the level of the other Amazons. Because of this she feels like a failure, which becomes central to the story, .

The rest is spoilery.

So this book is one of three things, depending on interpretation.

1. Maya is a super-companion, super-administrator, but is bad at fighting and is incredibly insecure about it. All the people around her have no idea about her insecurity, including her lover, her lover's best friend and her sister as well as a horde of other Amazon warriors she is acting as a Companion to as well as a cohort of other Companions who she has lived and trained with for four years. They obviously know nothing about it because they do nothing to alleviate it, instead choosing to continue a grueling training regime that is pointless (she's not improving), designed to train Amazon warriors (which she'll never be) and wasteful (her time would be better spent on administration where she is already overworked). After being humiliated by a prank that all of her "loved ones" could have stopped easily and no-one is repentant for, Maya's insecurity goes into overdrive and she puts herself into a series of deadly situations that nearly gets herself killed and gets her sister horribly punished as well. The Queen is forced to punish her to stop her self-destructive ways, but does so with the exact same humiliation that started all of this in the first place. Maya grows a backbone for about two minutes and threatens to leave, but everything blows over about two seconds later when she's told that her meager fighting skills are far more meager than she thinks but she really is really respected really. Really. So it's all ok then.

2. Maya is a super-companion, super-administrator, but is bad at fighting and is incredibly insecure about it. All of the people around her know all about it and thinks she's stupid. She's well-loved, but like an over-indulged but useful idiot-savant. Her insecurity doesn't matter, and in fact, the ongoing lack of respect and humiliation should eventually get her to start obeying the orders of her Amazon Warrior superiors like she should have been doing all along. After an increasingly damaging series of events, Maya finally accepts that she'll never be respected by these people and decides she doesn't care because she loves them. The end.

3. Maya is a super-companion, super-administrator, not a great fighter by Amazon standards, but still plenty good and seems to hold up well against the couple of demons she has fought. However, the Amazon Queen is insanely possessive and doesn't want to risk Maya becoming anything but a Companion. So she encourages/orchestrates events to undermine Maya's self-esteem and the respect of the other Amazons. Actions like not intervening when she is being harassed by Warriors who don't like her recruiting strategy or telling her to just accept a humiliating punishment given by another chief and citing political reasons for not stepping in. Later, given a choice between potentially losing Maya as a Companion or exposing Maya to her worst enemy in the Amazon world, she chooses the latter. (If Maya and Malora fight together they're an incredible team as described earlier in the book.) Finally, after humiliating her again and telling her a pack of lies designed to further undermine her confidence in her fighting ability, Maya finally stands up to her and threatens to leave. The other Amazons, including her sister, get her drunk and tell her it's not a lack of respect, it's just that Maya is full of self-pity. Finally, Maya gives up and crawls back to Malora. Malora wins.

Do any of those three sound like something worthwhile reading?

1.0 étoiles sur 5 ol' Joe's back and better than never... 28 février 2014
Par Bory Kasabova - Publié sur Amazon.com

First, I bought the book out of curiosity (I am, however, returning it, seeing as I don't want the author to have my money). My curiosity was not as much about what happens to the characters, as I don't care for them. The first book was mindless, boring drivel. No. I bought the book to see if the whole experience has taught ol' Joe something, anything. The answer? No. His main character is continuously shamed and ridiculed (painting her purple, twice, really?) and she forgives everyone. Because, if there is one thing ol' Joe likes writing about it's the humiliation of lesbian characters until they become willing doormats for their "love" interests. Speaks tons for the character of the man, I think.

Aside from that, on a purely story level, the book is bad, and not even the so bad it's funny/good way. It's boring. It's predictable. It recycles things from the previous installment. The characters are bland and uninteresting. There are so many Amazons, it's impossible to keep track of who is whom. And, frankly, I didn't want to keep track because they are two-dimensional and vastly recyclable.

Looking at the main characters more closely, Maya, the, for the lack of a better term, protagonist, is Michaela sans the were fox park. Exactly. The two are identical down to the fact that both have stupid puns for a surname. Malora is Lara. Again, exactly. The companions are Angle, Scarlet, and whatever those other faceless werewolves are named. This shouldn't, of course, come as a surprise to anyone who has read more that two of ol' Joe's books, as the guy can write two characters semi-competently, and continuously reuses them.

Finally, if ol' Joe wishes to continue writing, he should really invest some time and effort into learning something, anything, about world building. Two books in, and I know more about the stock image he used for the cover of the book than I do about the internal structure and mechanics of the world where the story takes place.

I am supremely upset to hear about what this author has done. I know I am a little late on the uptake here, but I have been traveling overseas and didn't find out until now. Being that I have RR on auto buy, I will now be returning several books it looks like, as I refuse to give my money to someone who completely misrepresented himself.

RR or JPL who ever he is should be ashamed. I was on his friend list and followed him on facebook. I saw how he interacted with some of the ladies who encouraged him and his writing ( myself included). I am thankful I did not have closer interaction with him as they did. I feel betrayed because he portrayed himself as a lesbian author writing lesbian fiction. He has desecrated our community, and the Lesbians who befriended him with his words and actions.

I'll leave off with just saying that Karma can be very unkind when it comes back on you, and no i would not recommend this author to anyone.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 That explains A LOT!!!!! 25 mars 2014
Par NTHPY - Publié sur Amazon.com

Wow, call me naive.Now I know why it took them so long to hook up in the first book! And when they did there was NO details!! Why the hell are there men writing lesbian themed anything, they have absolutely no idea what happens between women!Let alone the fact they are deceiving us by using fake names! Amazon should CLEARLY inform readers if the authors don't, I personally don't want to read or buy books about lesbians written by MEN, and really don't appreciate being duped! Can't help feeling violated here Amazon!
