3.5 stars is my un-rounded rating. Means I really enjoyed it, but it might not appeal to all.

Snapshot: I had pretty high hopes, and this tale still exceeded them. The plot moves smoothly and develops to a tense finale, the dialogue flowed naturally, characters were well-defined and interesting, and the world-building is presented through action more than explanation. The writing was even free from most of the indie-publishing/small press irritations that that grate on me. Huzzah!

'Forging Day' doesn't lend itself to to easy categorization. It's not a romance, lesbian or otherwise. It's not pure erotica. Ti's not post-apocalyptic. That said, it does include elements of all three genres. When we meet Olivia, the narrator, she is unemployed, living off the kindness of her friends and the generosity of her sister, and scraping the bottom of the barrel for boyfriends. She's not a bad person, but she is broken. Over the course of the book, she, like the Shards of Narsil, is re ...more

**18+ Mature readers only!

I will have to say I enjoyed this premise. Global apocalypse with a twist of Monsters, taken the form of Faires, Elves, Werewolves and anything that goes bump in the night!!

Olivia, the main character is a Dark Elf mage with some kickass magic and an a sassy attitude to match. This provacative tale has high action, awesome character development and relationship dynamics!

A wonderful book by a brand-new author. I thoroughly enjoyed this romp of a tale, with Good Guys to cheer for and Bad Guys to give you chills.

Can't wait for the next installment of Olivia's story to become available.

This is a tough book for me to review. I haven't got a voyeuristic bone in my body, it seems, and erotica does nothing for me. I tend to skim those scenes, and this book had me skimming a fair amount. So, fair warning, this book does contain a fair amount of graphic sex, and will be offensive to a certain, bigoted mindset (faith fore fend! There are girls with girls!). That said, I didn't skim the first sex scene, and I'm glad of it. It is not erotic, it's brutal, and it spiked a flame of rage i ...more

Must read

A great mix of sex magic explosions and religious blending. Great book can't wait for the next book. I can't wait to see what new powers and sexual exploits are going to come next.

I really like the whole modern works with the introduction of magic. Olivia becomes a dark elf with magic, which she isn't instantly proficient with and has to train.

I'll be picking up the next book.
