Daughter of Smoke and Bone: Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy: Book One
Daughter of Smoke and Bone: Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy: Book One
Price: 2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely take on a genre, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The vampire thing seems almost endless but this is a very, very well considered and written take on that all-too-common theme. There is a genuine plan towing the story along and loveable (if not quite believable) characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another one, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are good! Well edited, carefully written crime novels around a credible female character who exhibits the sort of strengths and weaknesses that make her feel very real. For the very largest part I find the tumble of the main-character's behaviour so real that it could almost have taken shape as any outcome. But Ruth does, at critical moments, make decisions that are strong and in control.

2.0 out of 5 stars Silly, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dreadful, silly idea that feels like a rehash of other things. Editing is sloppy and it has the grip of a slimy paw.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good solid device, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Workaday flash drive; solid, robust, simple, gimmick-free. This is the sort of drive you want in your pocket or on your key-chain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well constructed thriller, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Careful plot and (though barely credible) consistent events. Just a pity about the rather infantile love-interest element which could have been completely left-out without taking anything away at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely fluff, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's not deep, it's not clever but it's congruent and readable and well edited and gave me several happy hours of distraction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I just can't fault it! Small, excellent battery life, fast, responsive, crisp display... Could the focus control on the camera be a bit better at close range? If I take a couple of shots at slightly different distances (in the 20 to 50cm range) some shots will have crisper focus... but it's a phone not a macro camera!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable but short, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The stories are very inventive and quite well edited but they're all a bit short. It feels like they're artificially curtailed to tempt purchase of the next installment - but I'm not tempted to get another almost finished book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Odd shape, 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Odd shape seemed ideal for tethering but it's a bit awkward when open (shorter than I expected) - wouldn't have bought it if there'd been a photo of it open.

Works well; the LED is a bit bright - not sure what it's for; the round shape makes it tricky to handle.
