Sew, It's a Quest.

"What are you doing here! Skewwood Forest is no place for a Prince!" - Robin

Despite the fact that this blog is supposed to be classics only, my author insists that I review her published book today, because it's free for the next five days, and because she just published it's sequel, Do You Take This Quest? 

I asked her if she wants my honest opinion - and she said yes ... since she knows I don't sugar-coat my opinions of her work.

Sew, It's a Quest sounds like a fifteen-year-old wrote it. I don't care if she was fifteen, obviously fifteen-year-olds have no business publishing books. Everything is choppy, characters go flat at critical moments ... and Kendra seems to think that she can make up for all this by adding in her "humor."


Okay, I'll give that it's an interesting spin on Sleeping Beauty, and I did like Robin. (Kendra say's she's a lot like me, but that is so not true. Robin lacks my poise and grace - and she can't shoot a bow worth a flip. I can. AND I DON'T CARE THAT SHE CAN COOK. WHO NEEDS COOKING ANYWAYS!!!!)


Personally, I wouldn't even touch the sequel with a ten-foot pole ... but, knowing Kendra, I'll be forced to read (and review) it some time or another.

I'm so looking forward to it.

"Thou dost not cut cube roots with a kite!" - Doranna.
(See what I mean about her humor? Let's not even mention the punchline.) 

And, Kendra - I've only posted two actual reviews on here - I know your computer's down, and all that ... but two reviews? Kendra, seriously!
