Présentation de l'éditeur

Maya Softpeace is a schoolteacher from the oceanside village of Gallen's Cove in the world of Morehama. Gallen's Cove is a peaceful village, except of course during winter gales.

But one day, the peace is broken by a band of Amazon women, who round up the villagers. "This village has broken our centuries-old agreement," the head Amazon explains. "We keep you safe from the demons that would overrun this world, and for that, you must tithe to us so that we may be free to keep the demons at bay." And tithe, it turns out, includes fresh Amazon recruits.

Maya finds herself the most unwilling of recruits taken away from Gallen's Cove, and soon finds herself bound to Malora, the Amazon queen, as her companion. Maya, a schoolmarm at heart, struggles with the Amazon life and finds herself failing for the first time in her life, failing to fit in to the new lifestyle expected of her.

And then Maya meets her first demon.

This is a fantasy novel of 142,000 words.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 I didn't like it one bit. 2 février 2014
Par Chusa Angulo Suardiaz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I didn't like it one bit. I'm sorry but I didn't. I almost put it down more than once but I kept reading hoping that somehow, something would happen that'd convince me that it would make sense in the end.
I found the story, the characters, the plot... disturbing and annoying at the same time. The Amazons appear to me like an abusive bunch, with a tiranical social organization, and the relationships between warriors and companions are one like master-slave. I hated it. The companions are to be punished if they break the rules, the have to serve their warriors and attend all their needs. Ok, they don't have to become lovers right away but they have to let the warriors "touch" them to "comfort" the warriors souls. All because the warrior are so brave and make great sacrifices to keep the land free of demons...

I couldn't get to understand why Maya falls for the Queen. Why after being so angry, and upset and all of her speeches about having been kidnapped, tied up and mistreated and dragged by force to be a present for the Amazon Queen, and forced to become an Amazon (which apparently she doesn't want to be in any way), she always caves in and forgives Malora. Why?. I tried to understand. Hard. That's why I kept on reading in spite of being annoyed beyond words.
Oh, yes, Malora is very kind, and loving... in private (though this is also arguable, to me looks more patronizing and condescending than anything, but...) Because in public she is just a bitch. Do I make myself clear?

What's all about punishment? There's always to be a punishment. And, is it really amusing to punish somebody by dyeing her hair pink? It could seem like a silly punishment, but it's humillianting to me, I don't find amusing making somebody a clown in front of everyone. Well, I don't find punishment amusing, and much less necessary. There's a lot to talk about this, I think, but let's leave it at that.

I was also very disturbed. What is this thing about fourteen (or so) years old girls to be serving and letting themselves be touched by another women sometimes almost twice their age? (at least Maya wasn't underage but still...). They are slaves, for god's sake, slaves. They are not free to leave, they are not free to speak their minds (that would be disrepectful to their warriors and would be punished for it... oooh ,punishment again), they are not free to do with their lifes what they want... they are not free, period.

And the last part.... all that absurd interaction with that... demon? I'm sorry but that was stupid. I didn't understand the point of it. What was all that supposed to tell us? That Maya was not that faithful, submisive, sweet little companion that the author wanted us to believe she was? Well, if this is the case, then everything makes even much less sense.

I'm sorry for spoiling the fun but I am very disappointed with this book.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazon's Companion fell short of a great concept. 2 février 2014
Par Rox - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
********************Light Spoilers Ahead************************************

I was intrigued by the concept of this story. I enjoy a good adventure/fantasy lesbian story. What better way to delve into one than with lesbian Amazons! What promise this story had! A young village school teacher forcefully taken from her home to end up being the Queen's companion. She'd have to endure harsh training to possibly fight so called demons she's never seen nor believes in, solely based on the word of a group of people she does not trust. As you can see, there was so much potential for this tale.

I REALLY wanted to like this story, several things bothered me, the overly detailed descriptions of practice fighting scenes and lengthy conversations between the characters about placing bets on their warriors for competitions, and what each person was willing to wager. On and on it went and it was exhausting after a while so I just skipped ahead. Another irritating thing was the grammatical errors. For example, Nori, Malora, and Maya were having a conversation and whenever Nori spoke at times, the text would read "said Maya," when it was clear that Nori was the one speaking. I encountered this in at least two chapters. Also, the words the author used like "cute" and "ass." I just find it hard to believe that Amazon people would say, "she touched my ass." Too much of the words used were modern language context. I'm not sure if this was suppose to be an historical or period story, but even if it wasn't, those terms don't fit with this story's tone. Something else that bothered me was lack of character description. Why don't we know what any of the Amazons look like? Queen Malora has short blonde hair, that's it? Her age was likely mid 30's? We don't know!. There were no other real descriptions of the characters to differentiate them from one another. We are left to assume that Maya Softpeace looks Native American? Maybe? And that is just because of her name! Lol. This author was not descriptive enough about her characters to give them much substance, with the exception of Maya and Nori who came off stronger than even the queen. For some reason, she made those two characters jump off the page. Otherwise, the characterization was weak.

If your expecting sex in this book, you may be disappointed. This is not much of a romance, this is more of an growth/adventure story and while romance builds slowly between the two main leads, the sex is only mentioned, referred to, or implied, not described in any detail or with passion, simply glazed over. I am not saying that this had to be filled with gratuitous sex, all I am saying is where is the passion? The connection between the leads that makes it electrifying? My lesbian romance MUST have detailed sex at least once. Hell, if the author writes well enough, I don't even need to have a story with sex. This author unfortunately does not write well enough for me to not care about the lack of sex. I kept hoping this book would get better as it went along, soon I just started counting down the chapters until the end. It only really got exciting when Maya first sees the demon, then the story just gets more interesting after that and of course it happens toward the end. The ending was the best part, Maya redeemed herself and she grew, but still the story ended abruptly. It ended as if it was being left open for a sequel, which I'm sure could happen since some issues were left unresolved. The author had a great idea, it just was not developed well enough to fly and lacked so much that could have elevated it to more. I don't feel like I read the same book as all the others who have given this 5 stars.

2.5 stars for a good concept and ending. Only 2.5 stars for grammatical errors, weak characterization, lack of proper development of the idea, and just being left with the feeling that it could have been more.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good theme 16 mars 2014
Par MC - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Well, I think the theme was good, but the development of the book did not deliver what it could have. I did find, like many others, some resemblance of these characters with those from the fox series. I also noticed the banter was very similar to the same series. I really wanted to give it 2 stars, but I did like the book, just not too much.

There are lots of holes in the story, physical descriptions, character development, etc. Sometimes, there are gaps to the story, and sometimes there is too much description. SPOILERS: The banter sometimes goes on and on, a bit too much and way too similar to that of Michaela (Fox series). There was a gap from where Maya killed the demon to when they got to her village. Isn't she suffering because she killed someone who she cared about? isn't the queen extremely jealous and so, there has to be a period of understanding what happened to Maya? what happened to all the information Maya got from the demon, can that be used for future battles? What is that portal the demons come through? Can Anything be done about it? can they rescue previously kidnapped amazons (the demon mention Maya was not the first to be kidnapped).

I also noticed this author's themes always include abuse of women, dominance. How is it possible (SPOILER) that someone who is treated as badly as Maya was, can forgive. Is this another of those Stockholm syndrome stories. Like privateer, familiar, and Tresjolie (rape in the last); even in fitting in there is mental abuse of the main character. Yet, all of these characters always forgive. There are things that cannot be forgotten, maybe if one is too benevolent, one can forgive, but to forget all that... Trauma is what it would cause. Event he fox series, which I liked, made me feel that Michaela was abused. Yes, she gain friends and a family that she did not have, but lost her freedom and is in a relationship where the equal partners is non-existent. Anyway, I will read the sequel, but that might be the last book I buy from this author, not to mention the fact that apparently he has been misleading his fans in a despicable and creepy way.

And Robin, or whomever you are, try to write less abusive books and come clean with your fans.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 A Bad Book Written by Joe P Larson 23 février 2014
Par A Real Lesbian - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Once again this heterosexual man who likes to pose as a lesbian and con innocent women had written a book about dominance and psychological abuse. Joe P Larson who also writes under the names Julia P Lynde and Rosetta Robbins continues to write badly written and poorly edited books containing unsafe situations of dominance that goes far beyond what is considered safe for the submissive partner. This author writes books that mainly appeal to heterosexual men who fanaticize about lesbians. I would not recommend this book to anyone! While I respect anyone's right to buy and read anything that appeals to their taste, I want you to be aware of the lengths this man went to defraud the women who befriended him on Facebook. I personally had conversations via IM and email in which he told me he was a lesbian. When I learned the truth about who he was and confronted him he refused to respond. I find the unethical actions a personal violation.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Read this awhile back..... 6 janvier 2015
Par BKmoxie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I like Amazon/Warrior Women stories a lot. There doesn't need to be much plot to them for me to devour them. Having said that, and the fact that it was awhile ago that I read this, I really enjoyed the story.

I had read some reviews voicing concerns about events taking place in the book, but considering the time these events took place (alternate reality, as it were,) this didn't bother me. I'm just reviewing this now, because I still remember things in the story; it's thread still excites me. I have it in my "to read again pile," which says a lot.

I will also say that even though this is a Book One in a trilogy, this book stands on its own nicely. In fact, I really have no desire to finished this trilogy. I previewed the other two books and they don't hook me like this first book did. Unlike other trilogies I've read, there is no cliffhanger, that I recall.

Overall, a rather enjoyable, (albeit long,) story. I don't normally read nearly 600 page stories.

Aside: I don't care one whit about this author's gender issues.... misrepresentations or not. We all have our gender discoveries to make, many take a lifetime to resolve. Far be it from me to judge from afar without walking in someone else's shoes. I buy books that I like for content. I don't care if it's a ghostwriter, a straight man writing as a lesbian, a f2m, m2f, transgender.... Or any other gender I missed. Reviews should be about books, and author's style; they should not be direct attacks on said author's person. And full disclosure: I was born a woman; and, yes, I am a lesbian. I do not read most books mainly for the sexy bits. I absolutely believe you can be straight and write good gay/lesbian dialog. Love and emotions are universal. /rant
