A nice review from the Sneaky Burrito
Here's a nice little review from the Sneaky Burrito. This, by the way, is my favorite part of the review:
Female characters were decent; some men can't do female characters well at all, but Beaulieu seems to succeed. Honestly, there were a few times I forgot I was reading something written by a man. (Although maybe he writes like a woman, whatever the hell that means.) It's good. They're not all pulling their braids or acting like simpering fools like women in other books I've read that were written by men.
This is one of the parts of my writing that I'm pretty proud of. Not making the women (as Señor Burrito puts it) simpering fools. I come from a house of a strong, caring mother, and two twin sisters (one year older). There were times growing up when I felt alone against the girls (my dad was certainly around, but worked and so was not in the house during the day), but I'm glad I had the upbringing I did. Worlds better, IMO, than a jock mentality that can come from too much testosterone.
In any case, thanks, Sneaky Burrito!
