My review for Bitten and Diary of an Incubus: 4/5
My review for Necromancer: 0/5
Tracey H. Kitts know how to captivate the readers. Once you have read one of her book, then you are hooked and I already read Bitten and Diary of an incubus 2 times each.
The only thing I can say is that her stories do have strong characters. The heroine is always independent and the menage is never obvious. The males have to fight for her and make a truce by becoming a menage for the love of her.
It has been a while since I read Bitten and Diary of an incubus so I will most probably read them soon and come back here and add some extra comments about them. But so far, I know they are both great stories.
Regarding Necromancer, you may have noticed that I did not rate it. It is certainly not because the plot was weak. It was not because the characters were not lovable and it was not because of the quality of her writing… It was only because Tracey H. Kitts did not take the time to check correctly the french grammar before using it. Unfortunately, the more I advanced in the book, the more painful it became to concentrate on the story and not the grammar french typos.
As a french mother tongue, when I read an English book and inside there is a french character who is expected to be fluent in french, then I am happy and excited about it. But when the grammar is absolutely terrible and it is very obvious that it was translated online by a free crap tool, then what started to be enjoyable, became more and more upsetting. It is like reading “I you love” instead of “I love you”, your brain make the automatic rectification but after a while it starts to become an obsession. In Necromancer, one of the male character is the real Louis XIV, the great big french king in the 17th century. Therefore how come he makes basic mistakes such “ma cheri” instead of “ma cherie”? and many many other typos like this?
If I did not have to struggle about the french typos, Necromancer would have been rated 9/10… Sadly and unless the typos are corrected, this is not a book I will read again. 😦
I have no idea why the title was changed from Brain dead to Necromancer. I can only think that it has something to do with Anita Blake, necromancer (Laurell K Hamilton) and the publisher may have thought that it would bring more sales?
Unfortunately I cannot compliment the cover artist since NCP forgot to mention the name on their site but it is indeed a great cover.
NOTE TO AUTHORS: Tracey H. Kitts is unfortunately not the only English author that does not take the effort to make sure that the french is used correctly. I hope that this review will reach some of you and from now on you will provide us, french readers, the quality of language that we deserve.
