    About "Alaina Stanford"

    1. Alaina Stanford

      As the mother of seven children I learned to love to play video games pretty fast One day it occurred to me to write an adventure that flowed like a video game I added a touch of romance and Hypnotic Journey was born.The HJ characters are like a family to me They are foolish, daring, resourceful and full of passion not only for life but for the friendships they have created in this world and the next.I ve been a Trekkie all my life so my next series was Science Fiction The Treborel Series is a romantic paranormal adventure featuring a psychotic villain and a multiple layer of hero s fighting to survive the chaos of a continental conflict.Archangel is a pre apocalyptic series about angels fighting against the rising evil in a desperate attempt to keep humanity alive long enough to reach the end of days.Royal Duty is a new type of series Each book is a different genre Science Fiction, Historical Romance, Fantasy, etc They all share a main theme of a royal heir struggling against their obligations to the throne.In the end I write about how friendship and love can sometimes be the only thing that can keep you alive You will find my stories exciting and steamy, but I am not an erotic writer My character s still fall in love and have sex, its just not that obvious My Author Page is Alaina Stanforease come and visit me

    1. So much action, adventure, and violence. Elves, trolls, barbarians, sorceresses, and of course, good vs. evil.


    2. The book had a very interesting premise although my skin crawled a little in how the four adventurers (straight from modern day times, from the city) so easily trusted a reputed hypnotist to perform deep hypnosis on them so they can undertake adventures in epic fantasy (i.e. trolls, ogres, elves) together, as if sharing a lucid dream (a dream shared by more than one person). If it were me, I would run from such a session before it even started. But, we readers like to suspend our disbelief, and [...]


    3. Forbidden quest ReviewThis book is, as the author says from the outset, a bit like a video game. A simple, quick, fun read that defines four characters in their 'normal' lives, then re-defines the four characters again as they enter their adventure world. This is interesting from a technical standpoint, as the characters that was a bit shy in the real world, suddenly becomes a powerful sorceress, and the complete bitch becomes a nature-loving elf, at one with - and importantly - in control of al [...]


    4. This book shows a lot of promise but for me, a lot of details were missed out or it was presumed that you already knew. The fantasy aspect of it was very good and it was easy to like their 'quest'. The sense of freedom that Nicole found as a Woodland Elf was amusing to read and easy to sympathise with.A good book to read if you don't want anything too lengthy or involved. A good twist to the tale and an ending that leaves you wanting more.


    5. Forbidden Quest by Alaina Stanford seriously had so much potential, it's literally killing me. I really enjoyed the action storyline, blurb just full of promises. However when I get down to the knitty gritty, I'll be the first to admit I'm a grammar Nazi! I just can't bring myself to overlook such countless mistakes, I'd be more than happy to help out in editing department, just sayin'! This book read as a super painful rough draft, therefore I can not recommend this particular book.


    6. I was pleasantly suprised by this book. I don't know this author but the book was creative and inventive, well written. I was intrigued from the start and the twist (not to spoil it) at the end was delightful. I'd describe it as an action adventure in a fantasy setting with just a little romance but not too much.


    7. Forbidden Quest is imaginative and retained my interest. The book would appeal foremost to teenagers and young adults if that is your target audience. However, as a mature adult, I found it an easy read and if sitting at the beach on a sunny day, I would definitely pack it in my picnic hamper! Chryselle Brown


    8. Interesting tale of magic and make believe?Interesting tale of magic and make believe?This was a good story about the separation of real life and fantasy and how they can affect you in each realm.I liked the concept of this story and it was well written with good characters.


    9. This took me back to stories from my youth. A delightful change from what I usually read. An Adventure book that will get your heart pumping as you keep pace with the adventurers.



    10. Got this book for free on amazon and finally got around to reading it. It is a quick read with lots of action. Not a lot of detail but was good enough to keep me entertained.



    11. I very much enjoyed this read, it was fun, easy to get into, and got me through a long flight in one sitting.I feel it would have benefited from more in-depth characterisation - as it was, I felt the characters were a little underdeveloped, and there were several instances where grammar and punctuation could have been improved by a final edit. The ending felt quite rushed and abrupt, with more resolution needed to satisfy me, though it's not clear whether this is a reflection of the series conti [...]


    12. This is an enjoyable read. Loved the idea, modern day people being hypnotised, and then going on the adventure of a lifetime without leaving their chair. With trolls, elves, witches and barbarians, to name a few, this book has all the usual suspects. Is this the newest craze for holidays for those too busy to take the time off work?? Or is this more than what it seems? Read and find out!


    13. *I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review*I really enjoyed the premise of this book, and it has really great potential!The fact it was a shorter read also caught my interest as I do enjoy books I can get through quickly, but I thought it might have been a little too short. Some parts of the story needed explaining a little more, and the character’s reactions and interactions could have done with more information and writing on.The writing itself was good, and the story fl [...]


    14. It had such promise, with a fun setting and an interesting way to jump from reality to fantasy. However, it seemed to be the first draft of an OCR conversion gone awry. In addition to the editing errors of 1 instead of l, weird spacing, and seeming random punctuation, the characters and plot were not well developed. It was often difficult to follow what was going on, and who was acting or thinking. When offering a free book online as a sample of one's work, it should be of high quality to entice [...]


    15. It's was in interesting story, good start to a series. It needs some editing though, grammer and spelling. At one point instead of a "l" the author used an "1", which isn't big deal, but when you are looking at the text trying to figure out what is wrong's a little annoying.It switches from character to character without warning so it's also confusing to tell who is talking/thinking.However the plot line is good, and I would like to read another chapter in these characters lives. So many questio [...]


    16. I liked the idea of this tale characters placed under hypnosis enter an epic fantasy adventure However, I was disappointed that we never learn (in the first book) about the world they leave behind. It's a tale of the movie "Inception" meets "The Hobbit." It was definitely compelling and kept me reading and fascinated.On a down note, I was constantly distracted by the amount of typos. Needs a thorough editing.


    17. The basic plot idea of this story is an interesting idea, but that aside this is a horrible free Kindle book. Nicole is such a horrible, unsympathetic character that it is impossible to believe that she can suddenly change her personality halfway into the story. There are more books in this series, but I won't be buying any more.


    18. If you aren't looking for depth, you might enjoy this book. The head hopping, verbose language, and clichéd writing make for a shallow read. The author prefers telling to showing, sometimes doing both. Even though this was a second edition, there were still editing problems. The premise was interesting but the plot became predictable. If you want a quick, simple adventure, this might be for you.


    19. It's not often that I'll review a book on any criteria other than the quality of the story, but in this case the abuse of English, spelling, and grammar was so painful that I couldn't begin to enjoy the storywhatever it was about.


    20. To be honest, I liked this book, but there were far too many punctuation and grammatical errors. The book clearly hadn't been proof-read. The idea was good and the characters were interesting, but the errors and constant POV switches made the book very difficult to read.
