    About "Mell Eight"

    1. Mell Eight

      When Mell Eight was in high school she wrote a short story for an English class The assignment was for no than five pages, yet she had turned in ten and the story wasn t completed Her teacher was impressed, but writing stories for fun was her main source of procrastination from homework handing in an assignment that actually asked her to write fiction was too good to pass up Since then Mell has continued writing, posting in many online communities for fanfiction and original fiction and eventually branching into slash fiction She mostly writes paranormal or fantasy stories, but has been seen exploring the real world once or twice For information on Mell s stories and future writing plans, visit her website.

    1. I received a free ARC via NetGalleyDNF at 37%I can'tthis book is kind of two stories mushed together. The first story - the story of uncle Yakov and Martin and how Gramma Chana and her family got out of Germany - I really liked. It had some awkward dialogue but for the most part it was a nice, well written, slightly supernatural story and that story I'd give 3.5-4 starse second story is Yani's story and to start with it's really boring. Nothing happens for a good chunk of the first section excep [...]


    2. Well wow, this book was kinda unique. It wasn't perfect (or even close) but it took me by surprise few time, which I liked (it being essentially two novelas/stories in one probably helped >>) . It was nice and little (very much) silly but probably best I read from Mell Eight until now (but I didn't read that much >>). I have issues with some things, but yeah. second story on it was cute and easy read. First story not so much and I liked how seriously it was taken. Overall I am happy [...]


    3. This is more of a feedback than a review, because, I'm afraid I wasn't able to pass the 30% mark.The story started out interesting; I instantly took a liking to Yani. After he was captured though, things took a "weird" turn. It was just all too much, so cliché, felt forced somehow. And I'm not a fan of multiple POVs. I didn't really enjoy getting to know the cast and the story didn't hold my attention for long.Thanks for giving me the chance to read it anyway! Highly appreciated.


    4. 3.5 Stars ~ Magnified has an interesting take on the paranormal and was thought provoking, specifically with the historical elements. I enjoyed both aspects, for the most part.The story begins with Yani’s Great Grandmother, Chana, on her deathbed, finally telling the story of what happened when they escaped the train heading for a concentration camp, and ultimately surviving to come to America. I was engrossed in this part of the story, told from third person narrative from Chana’s experienc [...]


    5. Good3.25 StarsI liked this one. It wasn’t perfect and had a few plot holes, but I still enjoyed it.I enjoyed going back into the past for Yanov and Martin’s story at the start of the book but felt that the momentum of the story suffered a little when we transitioned to the present and continued with Yani’s story, understandable because the new characters, Yani and his friends and family, all had to be introduced for the story to continue. Once I got past this lag in the storyline the story [...]


    6. Okay. Sookay. This is not a bad story. The actual story itself is kinda interesting - vampires and werewolves and magic and a "normal" human banding together in a sort of college-age elite team thing. Here's the thing, though - it's two separate novellas, loosely connected by secondary characters, and the transition between the two iswell, kinda boring. Now that the world is built, I would try another related story, but I don't think this particular one is one that I would recommend. I'd say go [...]

    8. I received this book through Net Galley as an ARC and I can honestly say after a strange and slow start it really picked up pace.Yani was a great character so clear headed, bringing in his roommate Brandon, his ex lover Luke and his new love interest Aaron was entertaining and offering multiple supernatural entities together fighting for one cause was well worked.I'm thoroughly looking forward to book 2 Justified.



    9. A Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words ReviewFor the full review visit wp/p220KL-85BFrom that review: "Magnified is the first in a new series by Mell Eight and a most unusual series its starting out to be.  A supernatural tale, it has all the typical elements one expects to find such as vampires, werewolves, succubi and more but one of its main characters and an important secondary character are Eastern European Jews, one of whom barely escaped the trains and gas chambers of WWII.  How they did [...]


    10. Mell Eight has turned me into a fantasy junkie, and I immediately add any new book she’s released to my must-read list. However Magnified was a little different to what I’ve come to expect from this author. I’m use to Mell Eight sweeping me off to some magical land, or surrounding me with magical creatures, and although the magical creatures do eventually make an appearance here, the beginning of this story stood on the merit of some emotive writing alone.The story begins in 2004, with Yan [...]


    11. (actual rating: 3.5)The idea of this book is very interesting, but the outcome not so much.Let's start with the good things, shall we? I loved how many supernatural creatures there were and how each species interacted with the others. The main character is jewish and it's a big part of him, which was interesting, because I don't know much about jewish culture. Sadly the book got very lecturing at times and honestly, I don't know why some information was in it. For example: Yani thinks about how [...]


    12. The first part was a little slow and boring but it got a lot better and I'm looking forward to another book about these characters.


    13. I read in one sitting and enjoyed itd look forward to the next installmentsbut it didn'tWOWme. I couldn't remember what it was about the next day.
