Smashwords book reviews by Amber Jerome~Norrgard
- Shadows of the Realm
on May 17, 2012
Dionne Lister's Shadows of the Realm starts out with a scene that grabs you, and does not let go, even after you've finished reading. Exceptional in the fact that it is a completely unique novel, Lister creates a new world that is so realistic, it makes the reader want to grab a ticket and head over for a nice permanent vacation. I fell in love with the characters, and was disappointed when the novel ended, and am ready for more. I will be impatiently waiting the rest of the books in the series, and am desperate for more!
- Dark Spaces
on Aug. 15, 2012
Edge of your seat reading!
Dark Spaces, Dionne Lister's second publication, just proves she's an exceptionally versatile writer. Dark Spaces is exquisitely suspenseful, leaving the reader on the edge of their seat throughout the entire book. Lister humanizes her characters so completely that she causes the reader to feel exactly what the characters are feeling: fear, horror, depression, anguish. This is a collection every suspense genre fan should buy and read.
- From Where I Stand
on Nov. 14, 2012
Robert Zimmermann starts his career as an Indie Author with nothing less than exceptional, honest, heart-felt and addictive prose in his first publication "From When I Stand". Absolutely cannot WAIT to see what the future brings to Zimmermann's career as an author as he has already proven his worth in platinum. By far the most honest collection of poetry I have read.
- Night Poems
on Nov. 14, 2012
Absolutely exquisite and breath taking! I have NEVER been as moved when reading poetry as I was while reading Ben Ditmars' "Night Poems". Each poem, set by hour and minute, floored me and took my breath away, as well as several bringing me to tears with the depth of meaning and feeling enveloping each word. Absolutely THE most moving and emotional work I have ever read in my life, "Night Poems" touches deep within the reader every emotion you can feel.
