New York Times Book Review

Thought you might like to see this very cool news. Please pass the word along, that Canada's Grande Dame of Speculative Fiction has had such wonderful recognition!

April 15, 2007:

The New York Times Sunday Book Review included Élisabeth Vonarburg's 'A Game of Perfection' in their round up of "Fiction in Translation".

Reviewer David ITZKOFF summarized the novel and concluded with, "... it is fascinating to watch Vonarburg grapple with the psyche of a man who might live for centuries or more, whose desires and motivations need not conform with those of us who'll get a mere 75 years if we're lucky."

Five-star review for SILENT DEATH


SILENT DEATH
Available from: New Concepts Publishing
A "Love Bites" short story ($2.50)

Five Roses:

Adam Walker is a finely honed killing machine. As one of the Company’s finest field agents, he holds a closely guarded secret - Adam is in fact a ninja, one of the deadly race of Japanese mythical warriors. When his lover and friend, Kiku, is brutally killed, Adam seeks out his revenge in the deadliest fashion. If he is to keep his actions secret from the Company he must enlist the help of Shainna Barton, a fellow agent and the only person Adam truly trusts. While Adam dishes out his revenge, Shainna covers for him on a mission. What neither of them could predict is the depth of their friendship and where that friendship will lead them…

Silent Death is a mere eighteen pages in length, but those few pages had this reviewer riveted to the seat! Ms Bridger has an evocative style of writing that draws the reader into the story from the opening paragraph. I was shocked to see Adam loose someone so early in the story, but the relationship he has with Shainna is both touching and thrilling. If you are looking for an erotic respite, a brief read, a well thought out plot and intriguing characters, you would do well to dip into Silent Death.

New Review for Rebel Heart


This story has long been near and dear to my heart, because it's the forerunner to my serial story, REBEL KNIGHT with Branscombe Richmond, the story officially sponsored by the American Motorcycle Company. So, seeing a review like this is a real pleasure. I had to share it with everyone!!

Francesca Daniels lives alone with her art, as a matter of fact she has always been a loner her entire life. Francesca once let a man into her life and that proved to be a grave mistake that she took to confirm her way of life. Nick Red Cloud, a private investigator, came riding into Francesca’s life one night. They were instantly attracted to one another and the attraction soon lead to flames.

Nick has not told Francesca the entire truth about himself and why he is there. When he discovers that he has brought her worst nightmare to her door, Nick fears he might have lost the love he just found. Nick pulls every string he has to help Francesca, but can he convince Francesca that he really loves her and wants a life with her forever?

Rebel Heart deals with a subject matter that can be tricky. Francesca has survived an attack, which leads her even further into her life as a loner. Nick has accepted a job thinking its just going to be a simple job. Neither anticipates nor realizes just how their lives will change forever, both good and bad, by this simple meeting. I was truly touched by how Ms. Bridger worked her story around the background of physical assault. The compassion, fear, rage and love that were expressed by the characters made Rebel Heart a love story that all women can relate to. I recommend Rebel Heart as a story that any type of reader would like in their library. I know I am happy to have it in mine and I plan on re-reading it several times.
