Here are a few of the reviews for my books.
Praise for Ghosts of Tsavo
A quirky and lovely spin through sweltering Nairobi, this story will have readers cheering… The use of Victorian English is probably the best example ever, outside actual Victorian texts. Beatrice is a spunky, determined woman, but at the same time wholly a model of Victorian females. Every character is fleshed out—truly odd, but completely normal within this weird world. Fans of historicals and paranormal will love every minute of this story!
I knew within the first few pages I would love this story and the quirky and practical Beatrice Knight. Her voice is charming and authentic, and she and her supporting cast leap from the pages… Imagine Mary Poppins as a paranormal detective. Yes, that delightful. I adored the characters — humans and non-humans, and find myself even now smiling over their antics and funny quirks.
I loved everything about it. From the plot to the characters to the exotic setting, every aspect of the story fascinated me. I particularly enjoyed Bee’s sense of humor and her complicated relationship with her overly-attached husband. A special mention goes to Mr. Timmons who is enigmatic and charming and infuriating, but all in the right measure.
Wish it didn’t end. I was intrigued with the characters and their adventures and can’t wait for a sequel. The Author made them come alive on the page. This is a great series that would be perfect for movies.
The Voice took hold of me from page one and refused to let me go. This was a very enjoyable read. The plot was fun! The characters were–OMW–adorable. I enjoyed this book immensely! It was just a fabulously, pleasant read. Unique. The pacing was great. Yeah. Loved it!
It blew me away! The main character is lovable and extremely believable – she is layered and complex which I love to find because I often find characters can be flat. The plot is fast-paced and gripping and the way it has been written is reminiscent of the time it’s set – highly recommended.
I couldn’t put it down… It’s unique and refreshingly funny. I can’t wait for the next one to come along.
Excellent book! After having slogged through so many disappointing indie authors, finally one with some real imagination and style. Would recommend for anyone who likes Elizabeth Peterson’s Egyptology books.
I heartily begrudged doing anything, including eating (one of my favorite things to do), until I had finished reading this book. Without meaning to, I found myself pulled into the story and so eager to learn what happened next, I ignored everything else I was supposed to do. I heartily recommend putting yourself in the same position.
It was much funnier than I expected… a slapdash paranormal mystery, heavy on the funny. I would definitely recommend this book, especially if you’re a fan of wit. I’m delighted to find it’s one of a series and I’m quite looking forward to reading the rest of them.
Praise for The Automaton’s Wife
I loved the first book in this series and I loved the second as well. The character of Beatrice is getting even more interesting and I can’t get enough of her relationship with Mr. Timmons. I can’t wait for the next book! I adored the language, the period, and the place of the story. Another winner!
Beatrice Knight is a force to reckon with, and the characters populating her stories are both delightful and maddening, but always interesting. I truly enjoyed the witty and engaging narrative style, the exotic setting, and the plot that had me devouring pages to get to the end of the story. A must read for anyone interested in Regency paranormal with a strong sense of humour.
I adored the first book in this series, and I was equally captivated by this one! Bee is certainly engaging and funny, and I really enjoy the interplay between her and Mr. Timmons. I must say I was agreeably surprised by Lilly’s character growth, and I’m glad to see Bee now has someone (two, counting Jonas!) within the household who’s part of her inner circle, more or less. I am eagerly awaiting book 3 – never has June seemed so long away!
I really loved this book. There were some places I had a hard time getting through as I was laughing so much. I enjoy paranormal books and to have one with so much humor is really refreshing. I wish there were more books with humor and less violence. This really is a must read.
This series is inventive and delightful. I truly enjoy reading the humorous prose, written in an enchanting Victorian dialect… Read this book, and you’ll surely find yourself enjoying the entire series.
Praise for Revenge of the Mantis
I can’t say enough good things about this series. I read all three books in 2 days… They were very refreshing and kept me in stitches. I almost didn’t read them as I thought the first book started out a little silly. I am so glad I gave it try. I can not wait for the next book.
I wanted to savor this book. I’ve already fallen in love with the characters, learned even more about them, and can’t wait to find out even more — and I wanted to just hang out with them as I settled back into what is now to me the familiar setting of Nairobi in the late 1800s. But no! This book just had to be so exciting, with a battle scene that takes your breath away and a declaration of love that leaves you just as breathless. I cannot wait for book four.
Dear Ms. Ehsani, As one of your gentle readers, might I endeavour you to rely on paranormals to assist you in making ready Book 4 of your series? August is much too far away for readers such as ourselves to breathlessly await the next installment. The indomitable yet enchanting Mrs. Knight, as well as her sturdy and fantastical cohorts, are ever in our minds. Please do consider our plight. Perhaps the assistance of a certain lightning god would be in order?
I enjoyed this book and had to get the others in the series!
Praise for Dragon’s Mind
“When Dragon’s true nature comes to light, Myth is forced into a fast paced, exciting rescue mission where she must rely on his disembodied voice to save them. A cast of interesting characters, high tech goodies and humorous banter makes this book fun and fast reading.”
An Amazon.com review
“I really liked the main character Myth. The story itself was very fast moving. What I liked most was the fun interactions between Myth and Dragon. This book had a lot more humor in it than I expected. I recommend this one if you are looking for a fast fun sci fi read.”
“The storyline was very easy to immerse myself in, which enabled me to finish it pretty fast. Very enjoyable, and I will be looking out for the sequel.”
Praise for Lethal Takeout
“I truly enjoyed reading Lethal Takeout and look forward to reading the next installment of The Ghost Post Mystery series. This book is suitable for adults and YA.”
“I enjoyed this book with its light humor and interesting blend of ghost story and mystery. The dialog between the characters and the interactions between the ghosts and the people was snappy and entertaining.”
“Just reading the title made me wonder, what could be lethal about takeout? As I read this book by talented author, Vered Ehsani, all my questions were answered. The characters in the story are likeable and eccentric. The storyline is crisp and moves at an enjoyable readable pace. There is humor, which is sometime dark, but will have you chuckling out loud.”
Praise for Diary of a Part-Time Ghost
“…a fun, easy, and enjoyable read! It had the right mix of adventure and humor.”
A Flamingnet.com review
“It will keep you hooked until the last page and you certainly don’t need to be a ghost or a kid to enjoy it.”
John Rykken, author of Bloodwood
“I would recommend this to any YA/Juvenile fiction lovers. It’s a light and easy read that will surprise you with all of its twists and turns.”
“A very captivating and interesting read, Vered Ehsani has done an excellent job… Genuinely enjoyable…”
Praise for Where Shadows Dance
“This is an awesome book! I love the way Author Vered Ehsani didn’t leave my mind hanging for a second. Once I picked up her book I didn’t put it down till I was done. Vered opened my mind up to Ghost, I loved it!”
“…there are some big secrets that come to light that almost made my head spin. There are so very many ways this series can go that it’s really kinda awesome. Fun with a nice historical twist, the idea that negativity breeds more negativity is still alive and well in this installment.”
