More About the Author

Hmm, I'm never good at the bio bit. I used to teach college & bartend, now I write novels. I love to meet new people, to hear their stories, to walk through new streets and see new vistas. I enjoy art in all its guises--graffiti, surrealist paintings, classic sculptures, tattoos, interesting buildings, Renoir, photography . . . Art & nature, they feed my soul & thus my muse.

Okay. I want you to prepare yourself for a bit of a déluge in the way of me describing to you just how ecstatically in love I am with this short story. Yes, you heard me right. Short story. What's that you say? You thought I already covered my love for Irial and Niall in my review of Radiant Shadows? Well, I thought so too. But then I stumbled across a little thing called "Stopping Time" and it became clear that this kind of love cannot be "covered" in a single review. Consider this fair warning. I've never actually reviewed a short story before. So here goes. This review will include a few unavoidable spoilers for Ink Exchange and Fragile Eternity if you haven't read them yet, but none at all for Radiant Shadows. So if you're up-to-date on the series, you're good to go as "Stopping Time" takes place in between Fragile Eternity and Radiant Shadows and is the absolutely perfect read right now if you're anxiously awaiting the fourth book's release. And I really recommend that you do read it. Having already read ...Read more ›

Stopping Time part 2 begins immediately where part one left off. Leslie is being drug by her brother who is extorting her for money either from the Fae or from one of his many `bosses'. Leslie is still struggling with her feelings for both Niall and Irial. She is afraid of who she will become if she enters the Dark Court. She isn't afraid of the monsters, but that she'll become one of the monsters. She knows herself and knows there's a reason why Irial chose her and why she chose his tattoo.

This 2nd part is incredibly unfulfilling. I am starting to really get angry at Leslie for having two powerful (and caring despite their court) men falling all over her and her safety, and she is squeamish. I know though at the same time that if she wants to be a different person then she can't do that in the Dark Court. This installment left me with a sour taste in my mouth at the ending. It's as if nothing is ever going to be complete. Why can't she become a Fae and part of another Court... Like the Winter Court that has ties with the Dark Court, but is not a part of it. Look at Seth, he's part of the High Court but is with Ash who is Summer. I mean there seems to be ways of her being Fae and around Niall and Irial (becoming Fae would also mean she won't be addicted to Irial) without becoming Dark. Bleck.... I'm unsatisfied, but who knows hopefully she'll release a longer book with a better ending then the last.

My mouth is parched because I wanted so much to read a little more. I loved getting to revisit these characters once again. I hope that Ms. Marr continues to delight us with the tales of the faerie world. Far too short, but worth it.

I picked up Stopping Time part 1 & 2 for free on my Kindle. The blurb sounded intriguing with the mixing of the mortal world and Fey, and was coming to say that this two part short story had interested me enough to pick up the rest of the series. It was a good look at some of the characters and the author's fast paced writing style. So what has me marking these as a two star review instead of my planned four. This is solely based on the categorization of these books. There is material content that is much to mature for children (and I would question it even if it was listed under teens). As a elementary teacher I could not in good consciousness let this past. This series had happily reminded me of the Meredith Gentry series by Laurell K. Hamilton, but Hamilton series is adult romantic fiction.

I picked this short story up when I realized that they were free for the Kindle. (Just use Kindle for PC if you don't have a Kindle and you can read it on your computer, along with many other books!) It is a very short story, readable in one sitting. What it lacks in length it makes up for in content.

The story focuses on Leslie, Irial, and Niall, even Gabriel shows up for a bit, some of my favorite characters from the Ink Exchange series. It is a great filler book while waiting for the next in the series, Radiant Shadows, to come out. I would love to see this short story expanded into a full novel because the love triangle presented here is one worth following through on. Any Melissa Marr fan will delight in having this story to read.

This novella part 2 picks up where part 1 ended. It began with a bang for having Irial come to the rescue for Leslie. He risks his faelty for Leslie because by him calling for help from Niall, he reveals that he is with Leslie which he isn't supposed to be. The story goes through some twists and you learn some things about Irial and Niall. Irail and Niall seem to even make progress with their relationship. However, I didn't like the ending. I don't know if there will be a part 3, but I hope if there is or maybe if Leslie is brought back into the books, then she will get to join a court of some sort so she can be with either of the strong and daring fae's who already love her so dearly. Overall it was well written and intriguing!
