On March 17th, 1912, on his journey back from the South Pole and just thirty-one miles from One Ton Depot with its supply of food and fuel, Lawrence Edward Grace Oates left the tent which he had shared with four companions and went out into a blizzard. His last words, according to Robert Scott, were: ‘I am just going outside and may be some time.’ His body was never found...

Smashwords book reviews by Leonie Harlington

  • George on July 24, 2014

    Loved this short story. It is, as the blurb says, (very) dark and erotic, but the writing is pared to the bone and the characters come to life on the page. Well-written and believable with enough ‘darkness’ to give me more than one delicious shiver.
  • Watching the Watcher on July 26, 2014

    Enjoyable short story with good dialogue and a nice little twist at the end.
  • All Foes on July 26, 2014

    A wonderful book cover and a very thoughtful story. Good world-building in very few words. Love the ending!
  • Nonlocal Detectives on July 26, 2014

    I enjoyed this very much, but there was rather a lot of unattributed dialogue which was confusing. However, the dialogue itself flowed easily and the writer has a very readable style.
  • The Simple Life Of Riley on July 28, 2014
    (no rating)
    I don't know the 'ratings' system in Smashwords, but I would like to leave a comment, The story is sweet and the general writing style is easy on the eye. However, the sentence structure is ponderous and unwieldy at times and there are far too many exclamation marks. (three in three sentences at one stage, and they are littered all over the pages.) I think the story has real potential but a good editor would make this far better. There were no spelling mistakes as far as I read, but I am afraid that I didn't get very far in. (I have an utter loathing of exclamation marks) I would like to read more by this author but I hope that she uses a beta reader in the first place and then an editor to help her develop her writing.
  • Con Sangre: The Book of New Life, I on July 28, 2014

    Stunning. Beautiful world building and character development. Dark dystopian world with a solid background. Great prose and well-crafted writing.
  • Time Enough To Die - The Watchmaker - Book One on July 30, 2014

    Twisty, complex and a very satisfying ending. Nice to have a well-written story free of SPaG errors and with solid, believable characters. A little confusing in a couple of places but it all pulled together in the end. Definitely one to re-read.
  • Roth on Aug. 07, 2014

    Thoroughly enjoyable, complex, twisty and clever novel. Well edited and with a couple of surprises in the plot! I grew to really like Roth!
  • Ethan Justice: Origins on Aug. 08, 2014

    Great fun as well as twisty, intricate and thoroughly enjoyable! The author has a very 'readable' voice and this is well-edited. Definitely a series to follow.
  • The Case of the Pig in the Evening Suit on Aug. 10, 2014

    This is a well-crafted, intricate mystery with some great characters. The writing flows easily and although it is, as described in the blurb, multi-layered, it was thoroughly enjoyable although there were several moments where even I felt queasy! Definitely an author to follow.
