My Life at the Magical Beings' Rehabilitation center

KM. Shea

Morgan L. Fae was perfectly normal. And then she met Dave, the stupid and chubby vampire, and Frey the not-so-sweet werewolf. Welcome to the MBRC.

 

I used to be normal. Only a few months ago I hung out with my best friend, went to school, watched all the TV I wanted, and I was blissfully unaware of magic beings. Only a few months ago my perfect world was busted wide open thanks to the presence of one stupid-and-slightly-chubby vampire named Dave.

I still hate you Dave.

Now instead of watching my favorite shows or attending my after school clubs I rush to Chicago to brush fussy unicorns, tutor rotten elves, shove tomato juice down the throats of unwilling vampires, argue with a blastedly stubborn Pooka, do paperwork for cyclopes, and more.

Did I mention I STILL HATE YOU DAVE?!?

Welcome to my life at the MBRC, the Magical Beings Rehabilitation Center.

You certainly know your humor. I read this whole thing, loving your MC's quirky personality. The dialogue is fast-paced and realistic. The whole plot has such potential. It sort of reminds me of the novel, "Paranormalacy," but not really. Same idea, per say, but yours focuses on rehabilitating.

Critique wise, this needs to go through an edit or two. There are misspelled words, punctuation errors, etc. Also, I advise you not to reference "Twilight." Granted, you do sound like a teenage girl when you do, but not all your readers are going to understand, especially the older ones. Anyway, great job. Backed :)

I love this. LOVE THIS!!! It's quirky, it's fun and it's completely orginal. I would buy this, I seriously would! Morgan's great, Frey and Devin are briliant, Dave's ridiculous and how, oh, how did you come up with the MBRC?! This book is genius. Please, please, please, PLEASE post more!!

This was well worth the read! Wildly entertaining and I like the humour! Morgan is an excellent character with a lot of common sense for a teenager! Please post more!

I am BACKING this on the strength of the first chapter.

If I did not think it was worth it I would not back it but I have not got the time at the moment for detailed comments. Since floating higher and higher in the Talent Spotting ranks I have been inundated with requests for reads. What I will say is that if you want detailed commentary in addition to the backing, message me. I just want the best works to go up while the detritus falls. Cheers.

Dear KM
This book is so original I just L O V E D it. Your characters can play in my head any time they want, in fact I think they have taken up permanent residence. and that is OK. You use such color when creating them and so many shades that it highlights your obvious skill and talent. CONGRATS.
BACKED BY ME FOR SURE
I do hope you will review my book, comment and most of all BACK it. but either way the BEST of luck with yours

KM,

Nice! Morgan is a refreshing young voice. The vampire genre is done a lot, but I found myself laughing at how sarcastic and innocent Morgan was. Not only that, Dave is a short, fat vampire and he answers to a werewolf. Talk about different.

You have a nice tone, and the book reads easy. Good luck with this, and BTW--your cover is excellent!

Backed,
Lu-Lu

Dear KM., I love your fantasy of vampires, werewolves, unicorns, elves, & even cyclopes - what a ride, your story - totally enjoyable. :) Hope you write more books. :) Your pitch is excellent, so set the hook for me to read your book. :) When you use short paragraphs & lots of dialogue, it makes me want to keep reading to find out what's going to happen next. I'm backing your book. :) Could you please take a moment to back my TWO memoir books? Thanks. :) Love, Susie :)

"When you back a book, it only improves the ranking of that book, not yours. However, the author whose book you are backing may decide to back your book also, in which case yes, your ranking would be improved"
"Every time you place a book on your bookshelf, your recommendation pushes the book up the rankings. And while that book sits on your bookshelf, your reputation as a talent spotter increases depending on how well that book performs."

MAGICAL REHAB CENTER
This is a clever vampire story. First, the vampire isn’t breath-takingly handsome- he’s fat; secondly, the whole idea of the story is funny. I admire the way you’ve taken a much over written genre and created an original vampire story. Makes this a good read. I’m adding this to my shelf. Burgio (Grain of Salt).

Highly amusing, it made me smile a lot. Its a fun idea and you have delivered it with style, there are the odd one liners that had me laughing. The characters are well drawn and just enough offside to make this bounce along at a cracking pace.
I have a couple of nits, you have slightly over used "that" in places and it could do with a bit of light editing. I suggest you try reading it to yourself out loud, this makes it easier to spot the stumbles.
Really enjoyable, the best of luck with it.

I like this very much, so much that I would buy it if I saw it in a bookshop. It's very funny, as is your pitch. Best of luck. Backed.

This is excellent. Really. Perfect voice, exciting start and funny, too! Shelved.

samox wrote 1505 days ago

Very engaging, right from the very beginning. I have a 16 year old girl at home, so I hear a voice like Morgan's 24 hours a day - you have it nailed. Well done! I look forward to reading more. Happily backed.

This is a great start. There are a few typos but nothing that can't be fixed easily. You have a great voice for your Morgan and her character shines through her speech and thoughts. Hopefully you will put some more up before too long - I'm really interested in where you are going to go with this.
