Smashwords book reviews by Mary Clyde

  • A Vampire in the Vatican 'Brotherhood of the Sword' on Dec. 04, 2013

    This author was recommended to me as I'm not much of a book reader. I found it a good story. I liked the Inspector and his off sider Franco. Full of surprises. Didn't get bored at any time which is what I like in a book. Easy to read and a terrific ending. It was a pleasure.
  • The Pardon on Dec. 04, 2013

    Written simply like a screenplay (no bog down) this made it thoroughly enjoyable to read from start to finish. Great story too.
  • The Hall of Condiments on Dec. 08, 2013

    Got to be the stupidist book I've ever read. I agree with W. Addison Gast and I found it near impossible to follow. The cover sucked me in. Bad mistake on my part.
  • Pulchritudinous Book 1 on Feb. 02, 2014

    This is a wonderful book for children. I even enjoyed it myself and to find a 'teaser' to book 2 at the end was an added bonus. Book2 I feel will be just as much a pleasure to read as the first book. Poor Puck, he really gets into unhappy situations when the rabbit Lepus is around. I have no doubt he will show more caution from now on when he sees that rabbit. lol. Can't wait for book 2.
  • The Torans of Andor 'Out of Time' on Feb. 08, 2014

    This is a wonderful fantasy story about a young man called Peter. He is accidently shifted to another world (the antipole). At one point he returns home but things have changed and he's much older, a wonderful chapter where he interacts a lot with his mother. I found the story easy to follow and would recommended it to anyone who enjoys something different that's simply written. Would be suitable for young teens too.
  • That Moment... on Feb. 08, 2014

    What a wonderful collection of true short stories. I agree with the other reviewers, it definitely gets you thinking. C.C.Champagne is a very special person and like so many others I am pleased that she has shared these experiences with us. I had to read it in one sitting too :)
  • All expenses paid on Feb. 08, 2014

    What a wonderful story with a lot of feeling and thoughtfulness. Great characters and a nice setting for the story to unfold. Definitely 5 stars.
  • The offer on Feb. 08, 2014

    Another wonderful story from this author. Highly recommended.
  • Return Home on Feb. 08, 2014

    Another Seeiso book with strong characters and a lot of feeling. I never review a book on spelling errors etc as they can be corrected and don't have anything to do with the story or main body of the book. After saying that, I would love to see a full novel from this author. Definitely a lot of talent here. :)))
  • Symbol of the Order on Feb. 08, 2014

    Well written and thought provoking story. I thoroughly enjoyed this short 'Templar' read.
  • Sons of Monkeys - A New Study Of The Human Animal By A Down On His Luck Chinaman With A Zoology Degree on July 15, 2014

    Fantastic book by a very talented and well educated man. I love Mars Q's sense of humour and by combining this with his knowledge, he has conveyed information to us with a new slant on evolution and man in general. Most enjoyable and educational piece of work.
  • Pulchritudinous Book 2 on July 15, 2014

    Our family have been waiting patiently for book 2 in the Pulchritudinous series and once again the author has given us a delightful story. The boy Puck has found himself in more trouble which he has caused himself but the wizard is being very tolerant of the situation. He goes on a journey where he learns more things about the world around him. I always love the interaction he has with his best friend Willow. The pictures once again are great and as Kevin Fontain said, the last picture is wonderful. I highly recommend this series for young and old.
