"Intriguing Paranormal Fantasy"
Cross-posted from my blog
Note this review is about both Volumes One and Two. I'm posting it on Volume One's entry as new readers should obviously start at the beginning ;-).
Refuge of Delayed Souls fits squarely into the Paranormal Fantasy Genre and is an enjoyable read.
Refuge of Delayed Souls has an interesting premise and plot which definately kept me reading.
The characterisation is well done.
The multiples times are well handled. The jumping around could easily have been confusing but isn't.
The writing is generally strong.
It's not a romance, thank goodness. Doesn't happen often in the Paranormal genre.
I read this as an ebook on Stanza. The primary reason I did this is I'm not fond of the layout of the website. The black on grey text makes my eyes go funny. This, of course, is a matter of taste.
While, as I noted above, the multiple times are well handled I did sometimes wish the story jumped around less. Again a matter of taste.
Miladysa occassionally resorts to small scale telling. What I mean is that there are no long passages of narrative summary, but she sometimes tells us what characters are feeling instead of showing it. Sometimes she shows it and then tells us. The alternatives to "said" sometimes get a bit out of hand as well (people seem to remark a heck of a lot for one).
I want book three now, but it isn't written yet.
Refuge of Delayed Souls is an unusual Paranormal Fantasy and well worth taking a look at (and buying if you have the moolah to spare).
