1.0 out of 5 stars Not enough story in this short story/example March 9, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I knew this was short, but I expect at least a bit of story in a prequel. This certainly didn't give me enough of a taste of the story to want to buy the book. Even as a freebie this was disappointing. Other prequels that I've read have often left me hanging for closure, but at least there was a real plot to them. Very very unsatisfying.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough detail October 11, 2011

I like the option of getting a sample of a book. But, two previews of other books, not a great way to intoduce the stories, at least I think it is about two other books. There was not a lot of anything.. information or the stories.

1.0 out of 5 stars Publishers - This is a Bad Idea September 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As you can see by all of the reviews and the low ranking of this title, readers do not like this marketing tactic for ebooks.

Samples may work well in the grocery store, but they do not fare the same when it comes to ebooks. We have the option to download samples to our ereaders.

Potential readers will glance at this ebook in a list of options, see the two or one star average and keep on going. In the back of their mind they will think - this author must stink. Instead, I suggest publishers offer the main title for free - even for a limited time to drum up interest.

It was ok but way to short. Possibly a very good series but not very full of heart. Do the other books cost money?

1.0 out of 5 stars Too boring to hold my attention September 4, 2011
By ManaB
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book or sample of a book lost my attention within the first few pages. As a mid-twenties woman, I usually enjoy a good young-adult book, but this wasn't good. Maybe younger teens would like it...

1.0 out of 5 stars not worth my time May 3, 2011
By Sorrel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've downloaded other short story type previews and found them an enjoyable intro to a series (even though I get addicted to the full price books), but this was ridiculously short and not nearly entertaining enough to make me want to buy the 13 to Life book. Instead of a "prequel" type of story, I felt like I was dropped into a scene in the middle of the story. And worse yet it is a deleted scene. NOTHING HAPPENS. I don't know who these characters are and I don't learn enough to care about them. I don't usually take the time to write a negative review of something free but it was just completely a waste of time.

More About the Author

Shannon Delany believes there is no one right path to following your dreams. Previously a teacher and now a farmer raising heritage livestock in upstate New York, Shannon Delany has always been fascinated by history, myths, legends and paranormal research.

Shannon's debut series of YA paranormal romance novels, the 13 TO LIFE series, (13 to Life, Secrets and Shadows, Bargains and Betrayals, Destiny and Deception, and Rivals and Retribution) began by winning the first-ever cellphone novel contest in the western world. Her books were so well received by readers (and nominated for a YALSA Teen Top Ten) that her trilogy was expanded to five books.

Shannon has debuted in science fiction in the Leap Books charity anthology SPIRITED: 13 Haunting Tales (with "To Hel and Back" featuring augmented reality work done by Karl Gee) and her high fantasy debut occurred in Month 9 Books' charity anthology TWO AND TWENTY DARK TALES (with "Pieces of Eight" co-written with singer and songwriter Max Scialdone).

Shannon's new WEATHER WITCH series (a steampunk series through St. Martin's Press) will begin to release in 2013. Learn more about Shannon at, on GoodReads, on Facebook (13 to Life Series by Shannon Delany; and AuthorShannonDelany) and Twitter (@shannon_delany).
