Book Description

Lucy Tribiana might be going mad. Benjamin Ratskeller should be lying, entombed and still, deep under the frozen earth. Nightly, though, Lucy watches the impossible: this young man from her past—months dead— comes to stand before her moonlit window, silently requesting entrance.

When disbelief and sleepless nights finally drive Lucy to answer his appeal, she can’t begin to suspect the strange tales Ben will bring with him out of the cold winter night. Even more, she can’t imagine the bizarre and ancient forces that have already begun to coalesce around their meeting.

Spanning centuries but told in three nights, The Severing Kiss is a story of secrets, betrayal, intrigue, madness, and undying lust.

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs more editing! November 27, 2012
By A. Pham

This is a well written book with an interesting story. It wasn't what I expected, but what I got from it was much more. It had all the aspects of a good book. However, there are still lots of problems with it. These are mostly problems with editing and the formatting of the book into an ebook format. It needs more editing to be a smoother read and there were also two scenes with random chunks of missing text.

There was one thing about it that bothered me the most. There was a constant change in perspective, from first-person, second-person, to third-person point-of-views. It should have stayed as one type of narrative, but switches from character to character. There was also weird attempt to integrate an epistolary element into the book as well, which I think, did not make much sense for this type of book. I believe a better effect could have been produced if the author just stuck to one narrative perspective. The author could have stuck to the epistolary style or stuck to one of the narrative POVs.

Overall, it was a great read and I believe, with time, the books that follow will just get better.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Entertaining Read May 31, 2013

A well written first entry by D.S. Larsell that was obviously put together with a great deal of thought. The story is fairly easy to follow, yet the world the author creates is interesting and invariably makes you want to know more.

I especially like the use of the past to show the reader how the current characters came to be who/what they are. However, I feel the changes in perspectives and style throughout detracts from the flow of the book.

Overall, it was an enjoyable read and I hope to see more from this series.

I could not put it down. The story carried me along and reflects a maturity of writing found in only the best of today's literature.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong novice effort March 4, 2013
Engaging characters, excellent atmosphere. A little loose structurally, but that works with the hallucinogenic quality of the plot. There might be one or two extra elements, but they all fit together and there are just enough loose ends hanging at the end to be interesting
