Praise for The Shamra Chronicles

from the media…

Sometimes , I pass books on to my 12 year old son. Sometimes he opens up the packages and run away with them. I don’t get much of a response for him regarding reviews. I have to gauge it by the time it takes for him to read it. Two days, it was done. My son said it was cool and wants another!

~Geek Girl Reviews on Curse of the Shamra

I think I like this one just as much as The Curse of the Shamra but for different reasons. You learn more about the Shamra in this book and I loved going back and finding out more about Dara's heritage…Like in the first, there is a lot of action, the characters are still courageous, smart and inspirational…Shamra Divided is well written and is a great read. I can’t wait until 2011 to get my hands on the third book, Chaos Unleashed.

~Mesmeric Revelation on Shamra Divided

Curse of the Shamra is wicked. Dara is an awesome character. She is strong, brave, funny and a million other things…This book is well written, has an amazing plot, it makes you laugh and there is a lot of action and adventure. I can’t wait to read the next book.

~Mesmeric Revelation on Curse of the Shamra

Dara of the Shamra has always been different. She has never enjoyed the same things the other Shamra girls enjoy…She prefers the athletic competitions against the guys such as running, so she can feel the wind in her hair. …I found I was captivated the entire time. …I loved Dara’s character …Her journey to free the Shamra was a tale that enthralled and excited. I would definitely recommend this one.

~Flamingnet Student Book Reviews on Curse of the Shamra

Curse of the Shamra deals with some heavy hitting concepts, like gender roles, placidness when action must be taken, and authority feeding people answers. .. a humorous and entertaining story. Twists and turns will keep you locked in until the very end; I often caught myself reading into the wee hours of the night. I had to know what was going to happen, no matter what!…The characters and settings spin themselves into a three dimensional world, which happens only with the best fantasy. Hoffman created a wonderful world full of interesting creatures and amazing interactions, bringing to life a world never before seen or imagined. This man is too unrecognized for his work: someone should put him on Oprah!

Curse Of The Shamra whisks readers off to places more alive than most characters, and characters more deeply drawn than the typical stereotypes flooding the vampire and sword and sorcery stories today.
