Smashwords book reviews by AJ Murphy

  • The Patriot Paradox on Sep. 09, 2012

    Would definitely recommend reading this novel. It is an easy read, and keeps you involved with the development of characters, and plot line.
  • Fire: The Collapse on Sep. 09, 2012

    Not at all sure what I expected, but the book is worth a read, particularly if you enjoy a good horror story. Esmont has a way of description that just pulls you in, and has you turning the pages.
  • Elements of the Undead Omnibus on Sep. 21, 2012

    If you enjoy books about Zombies, then definitely read this one. When attacked but Zombies, or some other creature, you do what you must to survive, then you go on and do what you must to live your life...
  • Bride of a Bygone War on Sep. 21, 2012

    A novel that takes you along and involves you in the plot which includes agents of the CIA, and set in Beirut during the war. You travel through the life of Walter, during that time, and experience the feelings, decisions and life of this character. Definitely worth a read.
  • The Golden Spark: The Legend of the Great Horse (Book 2) on Dec. 25, 2012

    The Golden Spark the Legend of the Great Horse is an easy read and I would definitely recommend it. If you like History and Horses and time travel, then this is a great book for you. Enjoy!
  • Living Half Free on Dec. 25, 2012

    This is an historically accurate novel which brings to the fore all of the emotions felt during and post the days of slavery. We fear, become angry, are filled with dread and terror as we read about the abuse incurred. Zachariah is a man who is forced to walk in two worlds, while remaining true to himself. Defiantly worth the read.
  • Don't Be a Hero: A Superhero Novel on Dec. 25, 2012

    Well worth the read. This novel is what one could say is an easy read. If you like adventures and superheros, then you'll definitely enjoy this.
  • Heiress of Lies (Bloodtruth #1) on Jan. 19, 2013

    An excellent read, once you start you don't want to put the book down. This could be called a roller coaster ride as it has so many twists and turns to keep you wanting to know what happens next. Who can she trust, where can she turn, what can she do to free herself .....and more....
  • A Widow in Waiting on Jan. 21, 2013

    While this timeline can be a bit on the confusing side, I did find the book a good read. I'd definitely recommend it...
  • The Earth Gate on Jan. 21, 2013

    I found the book confusing, and difficult to read... good try....
  • Arrival of the Traveler on Jan. 25, 2013

    This is a book which sets the stage for others to come.... the introductory chapter and definitely needs to be followed by the others in the series. There are several story-lines and many questions left unanswered in this book. Worth the read of a new writer.
  • The United States of Air: a Satire on Jan. 25, 2013

    Definitely worth the read. This book keeps your interest as you turn the pages. Enjoy!
  • Angels go to War-Book 1(Battle for Ehie Dacunga) on Jan. 25, 2013

    Worth the read. It kept me turning the pages to find out what happens next.
  • Haunting Shadows on Jan. 25, 2013

    What happens when the past comes up to bite you in the tucas... well this is a take on that... interesting and worth reading..... kept me turning the pages.
  • Coming to Astoria: An Immigrant's Tale on Jan. 25, 2013

    I am staying the middle ground with this novel, as while it is well written, there was nothing really very different about the novel. It seemed to have the same premise about a young man who came to another country to seek life. Many will enjoy this novel and I do encourage others to read it.
  • Enter Night on Jan. 25, 2013

    If you like horror novels, then this is one you will want to read. This novel is filled with great detail and well defined characters which help you keep turning the pages to see what happens next.
  • Down at the End of the River on Feb. 10, 2013

    I liked reading the stories, which to me appeared to be intertwined, yet separate. I'd recommend it.
  • Tentacles: An Anthology on Feb. 19, 2013

    This was a great read.... surprising, and kept my interest, and was well written. Definitely worth the read.
  • Daimones on March 10, 2013

    I was pleasantly surprised upon reading this novel. It is both provocative and suspenseful. The novel centered around a "normal family" that wakes up to find that during the night, the world has changed and all have perished save this particular family. The plot line is well thought out and keeps you turning the pages to find out what happens next. I would definitely recommend this novel.
  • Seriously Mum, What's an Alpaca? on March 10, 2013

    I enjoyed it, the novel was a quick read and definitely worth the read...
  • The Complete Monster Exchange Program on March 24, 2013

    while I didn't love the book, it was somewhat enjoyable. as a collection of short stories, it is worth reading...
  • After The Darkness: Episode Two on June 05, 2013

    Definitely worth the read, Part two keeps your interest, is indeed fast paced and keeps you involved as you move through it.
  • Chief - A Short Story (Tales from the Twisted Eden Sector) on July 08, 2013

    Have always found short stories interesting, as they are in fact mini novels, with the job of telling the complete story in few words. This does just that... it flows easily, has the serious, humorous and other emotes of life were you in the instance depicted. You want to continue to read to see where the story goes... and if it ends as you think it will.
  • A Spell Cast Volume One on May 08, 2014

    I enjoyed reading the book, and would recommend it to others.
  • Smashwords Style Guide on May 08, 2014
