Product description

Product Description

The journey into adulthood is stranger than she expects. A new adult science fiction fantasy.

Hetty Locklear lives in a nerd girl fantasy where she is the savior of a dying ancient galactic race. When she’s not role playing in the exotic game world she created, she dreams of being the new It Girl with suave clothes, hundreds of friends, hunks galore falling at her slippered feet, awesome parties, and a job to make every person in the cosmos drool.

Instead she’s stuck at the convenience store wearing stretchy clothes to fit over the paunch formed from a steady diet of donuts and coffee and with a social calendar as empty as deep space. In her whole life she’s only acquired two friends — a cousin, who barely counts, and her best friend since grade school.

Her life is rather bumpy, then her daydreams become a nightmare.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Geeky Read! 26 June 2013
By Cherie Reich - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Hetty Locklear soon discovers being an adult isn't as magical as she'd hoped it would be in M. Pax's The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear.

Hetty Locklear is unlike any character I've ever read about. She's awkward, a tad shy, and a bit lost on what she wants to do with her life, but she's also a very cool geek, who's very loyal. Her best friends have so much character and add to the storyline. And the men vying for Hetty's attention make this novel a fun and sometimes quite steamy read. And having spent many hours role-playing online, I love that Hetty and her friends enjoy that too. It definitely brought back memories of good times.

Sometimes the wordy descriptions had me skimming a bit here and there, and the plot could've been a bit tighter. The worldbuilding was fascinating, but I would've liked to learned more about it as some of the plot threads had a science fiction feel with a hint of fantasy. I liked how Hetty slowly grows more confident in who she is toward the end as well. As for the ending, it had me on the edge of my seat, and I hope Pax gets around to writing book two, so I can see what happens next.

Overall, The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear by M. Pax is an enjoyable read and sure to bring out the geek in us all.
5.0 out of 5 stars You'll be cheering for Hetty! 27 June 2013

Hetty is a real-world geeky girl trying to figure out her place in an adult world, while escaping the harsh realities by playing fantasy games with her friends. Mysterious events soon sweep her along a different path, one that challenges Hetty to rise above her preconceived notions of what it means to graduate from college and grow up.

This is a fun beginning to a new series, filled with foibles and embarrassing moments for Hetty, as well as romance and triumph. Add in ghostly visitors, strange parents and several potential suitors and you have the makings of a roller coaster ride filled with excitement.
5.0 out of 5 stars She Wanted Magic? She Got Magic! 29 October 2013
By Susan Flett Swiderski - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Donut-popping Hetty Locklear is one of the most self-doubting lovable heroines you'll ever meet, but who can blame her? Her own parents ditched her when she was still a young teen, just so they could go gallivanting after their weird Renaissance Fair dreams. When she finally walks onstage seven years later to get her college diploma, she has her fingers crossed that her less-than-stellar life will suddenly transform into something... better. She expects magic.

In hindsight, maybe she should have been more specific. Oh, don't get me wrong. She got transformation and magic out the wazoo, but I don't think it was exactly what she had in mind. I don't think she expected to attract an invisible stalker, or to be thrust into the middle of a mind-boggling battle. Up until now, the only place she felt special and in control was in her online fantasy game world, but she soon learns that she's every bit as beautiful and courageous in real life as her online persona.

Pax has created a group of unforgettable characters in this book, and I can hardly wait to read the rest of Hetty's tale.
4.0 out of 5 stars Love Hetty! 21 April 2014

Hetty is so charming. Her biggest desire is to feel as adult as her age says she should and hopes graduating from college will make it happen. She’s got a crush on her boss, but wants to break free of the dead-end job in pursuit of a perfect twenty-something lifestyle. What she does get is most certainly not what she bargained for and through a series of crazy events ends up in the middle of nowhere watching a fight of critter people, one of which she might be falling in love with. But will she be able to forgive him all his secrets and lies?

It was fun to accompany Hetty on her journey. I hope we get to continue onto the next leg to learn the fate of her relationship with Elron. Well, his fate altogether!

A wonderful coming of age book with some freakish twists. You really don't know what to believe, just like the main character, Hetty. It's a page Turner that keeps you wondering at ever twist. Will Hetty get along with her estranged parents after not seeing them for seven years? Will, Hetty, help her human/ beast boyfriend? Or will she take the easy route with easygoing Nate? I can't wait to read the next installment to find out!
