Dark and Suspenseful

Take Me to Church is a dark, suspenseful story that grabs hold and doesn’t let go. Full of intrigue and suspense, the story is well-composed and draws the reader into its dangerous world of mystery. Point of view was switched several times, used as a unique device, which confused me at times but did not detract from the overall readability of the story. This was a gritty, fast paced thriller that kept me engaged the entire time. My congratulations to the author - I look forward to reading the rest of the story.

Fantasy and Romance in One

A creative and inventive tale! A fantastical world full of romance. Pacing was a little quick in places but otherwise this was an engaging story that was kept the reader’s interest throughout its entirety. From dragons to orbs, from groves and covens, from different races of Witches to magic, the reader was absorbed by the ongoing story twists and turns. There were grammatical/spelling/punctuation errors, but a good editor or something like Grammarly or Word’s grammar and spell check could definitely help with those... they were not so numerous that they detracted from the overall quality of the story. I was glad of Priya’s happy ending after her rough start and liked the cliffhanger ending. Well done!

Raven Nevermore

The Raven by Kendra Newborne is a dark and gritty tale that intrigues the reader and captures the imagination. The dialogue is realistic and convincing. This story, while an edit would help with its mechanical errors, is a unique story that has potential and promise. An ongoing story yet, I expect great things from Ms. Newborne.

A Masterful Mystery

I love a story that keeps me guessing until the very end and Pinkie Promise did exactly that – right to the end. The characters are masterfully written from two perspectives, in 1976 and a seamless transition fast forward to twenty years later, 1996, when a cold case is reopened, involving one of their tight-knit group. This was an enjoyable rite of passage tale that was at once poignant and relatable, and yet another tale, set in 1996, and both were smoothly told, keeping the reader desperately engaged in the puzzle Reigner offers. The prose was tight and solid, the characters endearing and convincing, the description was compelling, full of great language, offering wonderful visuals…. I thoroughly enjoyed Pinkie Promise. I am led to believe a sequel may be in the works and I will certainly devour that when it comes out. Pinkie Promise was a delight to read and I highly recommend it!

A Magic Carpet Ride of Entertainment

The writer has created a world that is rich in description and rewarding in detail. A Smidge of Magic exemplifies true epic fantasy perfectly. The plot is cleverly constructed, a very powerful story, intriguing, suspenseful, emotional, exciting and engaging. I found myself gripped by the pages of this story, wanting to read on and read what happens next. Characters are delightfully three-dimensional, even Mal, and all moved the plot forward expertly. Description is the writer’s strongest point, the writer provides details and so many visuals that the reader can “see” everything written about. The writer’s world building is outstanding, a real pleasure to read. This novel has true depth and complexity that speak of master craftsmanship. This is by far the most imaginative and inventive book I’ve ever read – my congratulations to the writer!

Fun and Exciting

With suspense on three levels and superb characterization that is natural and realistic, The Triple Date pulls its readers in immediately, dropping humor in at regular intervals. Georgia is a finely drawn character who is the heart of the story, while the reader appreciates Chess’s deliberations as an executive and with his father and Cora’s struggles as a new employee. This was comical and lighthearted, and took its readers for a romantic, entertaining journey. Another wonderfully written McLaughlin tale – read it from beginning to end!

A Fairy Tale of the Heart

I was surprised by the ending on Fight for the Crown – I didn’t get the ending at all! KittyCatWriter is a competent writer and skilled with characterization and description. I enjoyed the tale of Lady Scarlett fighting for her kingdom. This is a lovely YA story filled with drama and beauty set in a fantasy time of long ago. A short but delightful story that keeps its readers engaged, Fight for the Crown is a true fairy tale of the heart.

A Touching and Emotional Story of Faith

A Touching and Emotional Story of Faith
This was a powerful page-turner, with vivid dreams, nightmares, and visions. The plot builds with suspense and intrigue, keeping the reader engaged with well-crafted composition. The characters are realistic and natural - the reader can relate to the characters between the love triangles, college struggles, and tangles of ordinary life and the Christian faith. The main character's devotion is admirable. This novel held real horrors and true joys within it and was a pleasure to read.

Engaging and enjoyable, this was an amazing story and readers and non-readers alike of the Christian genre will enjoy this.

President of the People

In Greg McLaughlin's The Third Party, Clint Groverton is the President the people want - and deserve. Alongside his running mate, Eveline Bohanon, the other perfect President, this book is exactly what made me keep reading. Such incredibly, realistically drawn characters serve to strengthen the story and make it a joy to read.

Also very realistic was the knowledge on platforms, issues, and statistics throughout the book, which lent a very credible feel to the storyline - the author's research and knowledge of news, state, government, politics, and current affairs is excellent, without a doubt. I personally enjoyed the descriptions of places and people - you could really "see" them.

Just as the reader is acclimating to the current state of affairs, a plot twist is thrown in and the reader has no choice but to keep going greedily to the next chapter, wondering how the conflict will be resolved.

A clear plotline and good, strong writing keeps the reader engaged throughout the entirety of the novel. I would only recommend an edit for some mild errors that don't actually detract from the flow of the story. That and making the first chapter a prologue. Otherwise, this is a brilliantly written, captivating narrative full of intrigue. excellent characterization and description. I look forward to reading another Greg McLaughlin book. My congratulations to the author!

A Magical Journey

The Heart of the Realm was a highly creative story, full of lush descriptions and imagination. The reader is fluently transported into the middle of a beautiful world as described by the author's vivid composition.

Trees, flowers, the sun, the flowers, the sound of the insects, everything is visually stunning - bravo to the the author for his gift at description. The Realm of the Fae is a beautiful, peaceful world and makes the reader wonder at the end what, indeed, will happen to Jessie? There's a great deal of potential here - keep writing!

A Refreshing Lycan Experience

This was an engaging tale that kept me intrigued throughout the entirety of the story. The points of view flowed smoothly back and forth (the paragraphs only need to be separated better, in my own opinion, to keep from confusing the reader) and their continuity kept up with the pace of the chapter. There were punctuation and grammar issues that could be resolved with editing tools or an editor, though they did not overly detract from the story. Good, solid writing overall that really brought forth the lycan experience. Well done!

A Real Thriller

A marvelously crafted work which kept me turning to the next chapter. Smoothly constructed, clean and concise prose, and few errors (i.e. missing commas) that did not detract from the overall story; editing could easily remedy this. The imagery was excellent and really contributed to the overall quality of the book. The main character is dynamic and realistic. This read very much like a Hollywood movie and several scenes seemed as if I was in the midst of one. I enjoyed the plot twists that were slipped in as well. This was an excellent read and I congratulate the author on such a great effort.

Waves Break on Unknown Shores

I wanted to use the following remark for my review: This reminded me greatly of Stephen King's "It" - the boys going to and from childhood and adulthood days, linked by trauma. (My favorite book by him, no less). You delivered those innocent childhood remembrances expertly, Your characters were dynamic - young and adult - drawn to order. There is a good deal of sarcasm and wit that the reader can appreciate in Phil, a part of his character. And your use of description and metaphors are delightful, truly original. Paced perfectly, both in terms of mystery and writing, with just enough tension building to keep the reader turning to the next chapter, wanting to know more. A well-constructed mystery and well-written. The use of first person was refreshing. Some editing to clean it up (a few errors) and you could have a best seller. I enjoyed the read.

Shows Lots of Promise

I immediately was drawn into the story, so your story is definitely interesting

Seraphina is a headstrong character and that comes across right away - your ability to show that was clear. Conflict and drama develops soon after the beginning in the meeting of the Baron. Were this a full length book, I'd continue reading and am sorry there's only one chapter! Keep writing - looking forward to more.

A Beautiful Journey

LeClair has a beautiful writing style that keeps you entranced throughout the story. Her excellent writing grabs hold of you and keeps you riveted. There are dramatic scenes, full of action that are realistic and intense, which are a pleasure to read. The characters are dynamic and believable and the plot is full of drama and suspense. The wielding of such well-crafted description and details throughout made this story so much more likable. Deftly crafted, anyone who appreciates epic fantasy, i.e, magic, magical creatures, royalty, quest, etc., will appreciate this, but this was a story that anyone can appreciate, regardless of their genre preference. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and recommend this to anyone. I look forward to the next book of the series.

Fascinating and Creative

Tatzelwyrm is a uniquely crafted work which grabs hold of your imagination and doesn’t let go. The character development is well-done – the main character Nannade grows up before the reader’s eyes.

The plot is smooth and convincing. This was a unique story that swept me away from Chapter 1 on. I would recommend breaking up the long paragraphs as many of them have become run-on paragraphs. In need of some thorough editing and an all-over polishing, this story can rate 5 stars easily once it’s been gone over. My congratulations to the writer on such a promising tale; I look forward to reading more as the story unfolds!

A Unique and Creative Tale

This was by far the most imaginative story I’ve read. The colloquialisms and use of popular terms, games, etc. were spot on. The oscillation of the points of views of demons/angels was an interesting literary device that was really impressive; each had their own personality. An insertion of history spiced the narrative up as well. Something I enjoyed was the point of view of a child, both Cannon and Kim as 4th graders and Cannon and Lizbeth as 6th graders. That’s not very common and the author did a superb job telling the story from their points of view. The prose was tight and well-written, the pacing perfect. The author shines a light on racism and child abuse in the home and drug and alcoholism and its effects on children, which regrettably is so prevalent in today’s society. The author has a highly effective writing style and keeps the reader engaged throughout the story. Well done!

A Dark, Detective Ghost Story

Breakers is another Litherland triumph. Multiple first person point of views whet the appetite with a creepy, occult ghost story in the background and a thrilling crime story that is Litherland’s specialty. Deep and dark, descriptive and detailed, full of visuals and drama, you couldn’t want more. The characterization is masterfully drawn and unique, each realistic and natural. The reader is kept in suspense waiting for a psychopath to emerge and for intrigues to play themselves out, whether ghostly or dramatic. The conflict in this story, a combination of paranormal and thriller, is a joy to read. The pacing was perfect and the setting, a turbulent sea with an old, 200-year-old home, was wonderful for a ghost story. All in all, a stunning story. I couldn’t ask for more, except… another one?

An Impressive Journey

Broken English is the second McLaughlin book I’ve read and got even more satisfaction from it than I did The Third Party, which I enjoyed immensely. I found it to be thoroughly researched and its facts easily presented, rather than infodumps. Set at an easy pace, this was engaging and enjoyable, its characters straightforward and relatable. The protagonist is likable and the reader is sympathetic to his cause. McLaughlin offers a look into Mexican life and culture, while shining a light on the misery that is American-Mexican immigration. Deftly crafted, this was an informative read that caught my attention from the beginning. My congratulations to Greg McLaughlin on such a inventive work.

A Gripping Page-Turner

Another Phil Tyler triumph that had me on the edge of my seat! Characters Liz, Slattery and Winston are so well drawn, they are a joy to read. An impressive narrative with a cleverly concealed plot that keeps the reader spiraling down into oblivion along with Phil Tyler. Wonderful literary devices – sarcasm, dialogue, argument – make this a refreshing, realistic, laugh out loud read, just as Waves Break on Unknown Shores. Full of intrigue and intensity, the suspense was drawn out until the very end. Editing is still being done, so I will refrain from considering the errors; they were few and did not detract from the overall read of the book. A real complement to the mystery/thriller/action genre – my congratulations to Barry Litherland for producing such a finely composed work.

Mystery and More

Blood Moon was an enjoyable and easy read with great potential. Sage develops nicely throughout the story and, along with the plot, keeps the reader interested. You know how to hook your readers and keep them in suspense, that's a technique you've mastered. Your dialogue is very realistic, some of it comic in form - well done. The grammar and punctuation need improvement but you can fix your errors and focus on your areas of need.

The periodic mystery really keeps the reader hoping to learn more.
This story shows great promise - keep writing!

A True Epic Fantasy

This is what real fantasy is - dragons, magic, different worlds and creatures. An entirely different world, spun artfully into a web of plot twists and intrigues.

The Grim Reaper

This is a unique story - a horror story with suspense. Description is a strong point - at no point is the reader left wondering what they're reading. Good, strong language skills in terms of imagery/explanation.

There's a strong plotline, though I felt like it was a little side-tracked from the horror aspect. It could be that I just don't know the storyline, however. Swift pacing throughout much of this - slowing it down will give room for more imagery and development of the scene and character development.

I have to point out again that a new character's dialogue requires a new paragraph. As for spelling and grammar, there were few errors, nothing seriously detracting from the story other than dialogue. A little editing and polishing will take care of this.

This was a smooth read that kept me reading on and I enjoyed it. Keep going - we're left in suspense! :)
