Needs an editor!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Celtic Storms (Celtic Steel Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I am reading this and have found many grammatical errors. "Waste" for "waist", "he" instead of "him", etc. Also, in the scene where Darina bursts in on Kyra in the bathtub, it says, 'I'll let you get dressed, then we will talk, Kyra,' and with that Kyra left." Darina is the one who left.
I haven't finished the book and am not sure if I will. I cannot stand this type of error when I read. Am I too picky? I don't think so. I think the majority of readers are that picky. I am interested in the story, but this distracts from it so much.
Update: Waste for waist, bare for bear... Please get a new editor. :)

Thanks for the heads up! I have read more then a few books that appeared to not format well to the e-book form. One particularly had broken words all through it. breakfast for example would be break fast. That was terribly annoying but if I paid even 3 dollars for something that sounds as badly written as this book I would of been very mad. waste instead of waist? really?

pixies rule says:
There were an awful lot of errors in editing this book and it drove me crazy but if you can get past the errors it was fairly good but left me wondering and while there are other books to this sereis they must not be completed yet and gave no time frame as to when they would be complete. That drives me crazy too! I am looking forward to being able to read the rest of the books in this series. I did enjoy the book
