Lamia's FistsLamia’s Fists by D. Omars

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This was a very unusual book. Let me start with the good. This book starred a strong lesbian boxer. In spite of everything else, I liked her and her boxing friends, and the romantic interest. I cared about how it was going to end. I stayed with this book no matter the errors, just to make sure there was a decent ending. Though, I didn’t think it an actual ending. No strings of the tale were left undone. I wondered if there was to be a part two.

Another thing that was fun was the werebeings or other fantasy types. In this case, the main character is a lamia. I never knew what a lamia was before this book.

Sorry, the rest isn’t as nice. This book was a VERY long book. It is especially long because of the confusion of present tense and past tense. Neither of these were used consistently. Had it been that present tense was used during the fights, it might have been like listening to the sports commentator during a bout in the ring. But even there it got old and was interrupted with past-tense of thoughts of everyone in the arena, it seemed. And about those matches, GODS! That got old fast. Unless you like boxing, or understand it, this part will be as boring for you as it was for me.

There were words used that were in wrong places, such as ‘been’ being used where the word ‘being’ should have been. It felt like the author wasn’t a natural English speaker, that maybe he had another language as his prime. Now I can’t be a judge of that as I can’t write anything in another language, so he’s got to be smarter than me. I struggle with this first language of mine. Still, a good editor, or another set of eyes before going public would have been good.

Last… I noticed that the relationships were weird. A lot of blushing and very little women-moving-in-with their mates. Things like that made me wonder who was writing this. I only found out today that the author is male. That made it clear as to the whys.

Now if I haven’t discouraged you, I want you to know that this book is free on Amazon. Maybe it is a better edited read. If not I found that if you have text-to-speech on fast it helps get past the boring or difficult parts but maintains the storyline.
