Smashwords book reviews by Elizabeth Miller

  • Burden Kansas on May 12, 2011
    (no rating)
    Short and Sweet, Sweetly Brutal. I was hooked after the 1st chapter. Thought is was a little short but that does not mean that this story is lacking. It goes right into the action and keeps the momentum all the way --Rancher Keith Harris feels it is up to him to taken on the burdens of his family and he does it with style. Really hope Jessica gets her own follow up story line!!
  • Surface in Heaven on May 19, 2011
    (no rating)
    Not sure where the author was going with the story about 2 "teens" who are on the run from some shadowy group out to stop them from fulfilling their destiny. What destiny? Still not sure, but this story had a lot of potential to be great. Almost a marrige of Dune and 2001but just not all that readable
  • Dirty Little Angels on May 23, 2011

    Wow... Straight to the gut story telling that makes you think. 16 year old Hailey is having a very bad year and she tells her story with no holds barred. Its the kind of story that makes you angry for any kids that has to remotely put up with even part of what happens to this girl. Good Job!!!
  • Look for Our Mother and Our Father on May 23, 2011

    OK It really took me a while to want to read it because I read the introduction and was expecting a huge lecture and honestly I just skimmed this until I felt like reading something more serious than the fiction and I have been and let me tell you I wish I had read it when I first got it. THis auther never gets preachy and backs up a lot of their opionions while never making you feel like yours is not just as valid. I have now had a couple of friends who want to read it. Very nice job of relating opinion with parable to make their ideas easily understandable. Good Job!!!!
  • Following My Toes on May 29, 2011
    (no rating)
    Wow what a great story. Faith is a teacher whose boyfriend leaves her for her childhood best friend and in a flash decision after talking to another frined moves to another city and then her whole life goes a little wonky. Good characters, nice story pace and really was a lovely way to spend an afternoon in the sun. Well worth the price!!!
  • Entangled in Darkness on June 03, 2011

    If you have a family member that has a mental illness then you should read this book. It does an excellent job of helping to explain what goies on in the mind of someone with a mental illness. Annalyn moves out into the adult world and when the stress hits she starts a downward spiral that is terrifying to witness.
  • The Bone Trail on June 17, 2011

    Very readable Romance, Mystery novel about a world class journalist who is coaxed into investigating two missing woman and falls for a hardworking horse triner who helps her. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Kikaffir - a Black Comedy on June 21, 2011

    William Shakespears MacBeth meets Anthony Burgess A Clockwork Orange. In a word, WOW. Shapespear's already violent play gets an even more violent turn in this rewrite. Not recommended for the faint of heart or easliy offended. I also enjoyed the Afrikaan language used it, it makes the story very interesting.
  • Guardian of Eden on Sep. 03, 2011

    What an excellent book. This was hard to put down. Young Garrett, brilliant and protective, takes care of his younger sister Eden as they face a life that no child should have to face. Well written story with a bittersweet ending. I will proably read this one again. GREAT JOB!!! Nice way to spend an afternnon in the sun and well worht the price!!

  • The Woodsman on Sep. 25, 2011

    Stellar short story told in vivid detail. Wonderful descriptions of the day in the life of a man enjoying nature. Well Done!!
  • Legend of a Ninja: Beneath the Shadows on Oct. 16, 2011

    OK this book will not be for everyone but I must say the action in the story was wonderful and the tight writing style made it a enjoyable read. I would love to see what Wrath and Zyonel have in store for the future and can't wait to find out who has been making them doubt each other. Since they supposedly knew each other so well how could either belive the other was so wrong without someone pulling the string especially when Darwins father is thrown into the mix. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Legacy - Book One of the Balancer Chronicles on Nov. 06, 2011

    I must admit that I was excited to read this story. An explanation as to all the different types of supernatural beings but what I found instead was a history on a person. Not to saw this is not a bad story but instead of talking about his life as a balancer it gave more history of his family. Story is told via a diary and writen to James Butles's (Youngman's) great, great, etc granddaughter who has now becomae a balancer like him. It does give some description of the creatures he had fought but I didnt feel it was enough. The book is more of a history of the family lineage rather than what the main character Kat's life would be now that she was a balancer like the auther of the diary. I would like to read part two of these chronicles to see where they are going. All in all it wasn'yt a bad way to spend the day in the sun.
  • The Eyes that See - A Prelude to the Balancer Chronicles on Nov. 06, 2011

    Good story and nice accompaning peice to Legacy. It's a nice writing style and made for a nice way to spend about an hour or so in the sun.
  • The Strange Worlds of Hank Quense on Dec. 21, 2011

    Hystically companion to Hank Quense rather odd and funny novels.
  • Tales From Gundarland on Dec. 22, 2011

    Charmingly funny retelling of some classics and new fairytales from the mind of Hank Quense. I read this to a group of 7 to 10 year olds who thought these were hysterical. Great read for story times and a nice way to spend a day in the sun!!!
  • Clouded Rainbow on Dec. 22, 2011

    Roger Belkin is in love with his wife Lois. On their anniversary they go out for a fine dinner and romance, but on the way home disaster strikes. After a terrible auto accident leaves Lois in one hospital in a coma, Roger wakes to find himself in a different hospital with no memory of how he got there and only remember his terrible fear of hospitals. As the next day wears on Roger tries to remember what happened and how to get to his wife, unbeknownst that the police are now looking for him after he has several misunderstandings along his arduous journey. Well written novel that holds your attention. Great way to spend an afternoon in the sun!

  • Isle of Stumps on Jan. 25, 2012

    Three very cool short stories all have a military thread to them. Ranging from bizarre to to ordinary boot camp. This was an definetly an interesting read. All three stories are really very readable and was a great way to spend a day in the sun.
  • The Virgin King on Jan. 26, 2012

    Alternate history of the death of one of Englands Greatest Kings. Interesting premis but conversations where stilted and did not seem to grab my attention. If you are interested in history this is a nice fiction account but you have to want to read it.
  • Shelter (Blood Haze: Book One) on Jan. 31, 2012

    Not sure about the paranormal but not a bad read for the Tween set. 17 year old April is going to school for the first time after being hime schooled her entire life. Not only does she have to worry about the mean girls and homework, but how to deal with all the humans in school, since she is a vampire. Would have like to see the characters a little more fleshed out but all in all was not a bad way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • If You Go Into The Woods on Feb. 27, 2012

    Really GOOD shorts stories. I would love to see If you go into the woods as a longer story. Writing style is tight and well done. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more from this author
  • Transfection on Feb. 27, 2012

    Another great short story by David Gaughran. I would like to see some longer works because he has the short story down and would liek toknow if he can maintain a whole novel. Well written and good a read.
  • Transfection on Feb. 27, 2012

    Another great short story by David Gaughran. I would like to see some longer works because he has the short story down and would like to know if he can maintain a whole novel. Well written and good a read.
  • Ghost Plane and Other Disturbing Tales on Feb. 28, 2012

    I dont know that I would call these horror stories though all of them deal with death. Most of the stories are well written and read almost like poetry there are few that left me going "that's it" , but all in all these are very readable stories. Not a bad way to spend an hour or so in the sun.
  • LilyPad Princess on Feb. 28, 2012

    Sweet story for small children. Princess Gwendolyn and her brother are playing in the gardens when Jack knocks off Gendolyns crown into the pond and when Gwendolyn goes to look for it she finds a tiny frog wearing a crown. Knowing her fairytales, Gwendolyn kisses the frog thinkshe has met prince charming, but instead she gets Princess Lily (or Freda if Jack has his way) and she has no memory of her home. Gwendolyn asks her father to allow her to throw a ball for Lily so she can see if anyone knows her and her family. Had a great time reading this for story time with the 3 to 8 year olds!
  • Three for Avadar on March 04, 2012

    Nice tight writing and some very decent actions sequences keep this novel moving right along. Characters weren't deep so you don't really connect too closely with them but this by no means make this anything but an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Gifts and Consequences on April 05, 2012

    What would you do to change your life? That is a que for Jonathan Wheeler. He can make or break you, but it's your choice. Well written story had me laughing and crying throughout. What a nice way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Penelope and The Birthday Curse on April 06, 2012

    Cute young adult mystery story. Penelope is having a party but she doesn't really know the guest but her mother makes her attend anyway. Once the first body is found it seems that Penelope and her new friends try to figure out what's going on before someone else gets killed. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Stray : Touchstone Part 1 on April 13, 2012

    Very nice sci-fi fantasy story about a teenage Australian named Cassandra, that while walking home turns a corner and ends up on another world. Well written and funny. Done in a diary form it was an excellent way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Gratuitous Epilogue : Touchstone Extras on April 22, 2012

    Just what it says it is. If you are one of those people (like me) who just wants to know what happens after the excitement hs died down and the threat of impending doom has lifted. Pleasant follow up to Cass and Zaorens new lives as family and was a sweet way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Restless Highways on April 23, 2012

    Rod Serling eat your heart out! Excellent set of decently disturbing horror stories. Would have fit in an Twilight Zone, The Darkside, or Tales from the crypt episode. Well done and nice way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Saint Peter Killed God on May 10, 2012

    Being anti-religion I was reticent about reading this story. The story of a priest who ends up in a mental health ward though caught my interest. Bold ideas that are presented in a clever story about a man trying to figure out his own beliefs while still trying to help others. Well done and a really bice way to soend an afternoon in the sun.

  • Harbingers of Mortality on May 12, 2012

    This novel is very visual and well written. Not knowing it is part two of a series, I had no problem enjoying the story. Would have liked to have a little more of the actual assassination of the elf cause it sort of glossed over that part. The story seems more about a magical creature called a Paiktur that can use magic without it causeing too much strain on its well being and he has a plan to take over the empire. I can't wait to go back and read the first part. But all in all not a bad way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Gargoyles on May 26, 2012

    Decent medical thriller that is pretty darn belivable. Story has a good pace to it and decent characters and lots of action. If you enjoy Robin Cook, then this book is right up your alley. Pretty good way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • The Premonition on May 28, 2012

    Too short, even for a short story but interesting premis and would love to see the idea expounded.
  • Walking with Elephants on June 03, 2012

    Every woman I know has had not this exact experience but the same kind of experience and felt that freezing moment of panic when your world not only gets turned upside down but squashed. Funny story , well written with some laugh out loud moments. Has a dash of Erma Bombeck and a pinch of Gloria Steinem. A very nice way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave on June 03, 2012

    Reading this will make you not only extremely angry but also (hopefully) will move you to try and help. This work of fiction is based on parts of true events for some people and sadly this happens everyday in every country including the USA. All I can say is that I am gratefully more lurid details about the actual assaults was not included. Well written and good read.
  • The Blue Hornet on June 23, 2012

    I have now read a couple of books by this author so far they have been very enjoyable. This one is laugh out loud funny. Poor Parking Officer Jon Rupret (that's R before the E) gets tapped to work a new drug squad since the old unit is being investigated. It is really like reading Charlie Chaplin as a police officer and was a fun way to spend an afternoon inthe sun.
  • The Paperboys Club on June 24, 2012

    Mobashar Qureshi is an author that has fast become one of my favorites. Every story has been different to the extreme but every one of them have been thoroughly readable and this one is no exception. Excellent Sci-fi / Thriller that I finished at work in about 3 hours (Don't tell m boss). Detective Sam Banter and her partner Detective Bashi are trying to solve a cold case of a murdered child that is pointing towards officer misconduct. After meeting Clarence at the mental hospital that the childs mother ended up in and Sam meets him and he tells her things he couldn't possible know, she listens. Hard to put down and an excellent way to spend an afternoon in the sun. I would also love to read a sequel.
  • Symphony of Blood, A Hank Mondale Supernatural Case on June 30, 2012

    Gritty crime thriller with sci-fi twist. Private detective Hank Mondale is down on his luck and needs a client to earn some fast cash when he gets a call from billionaire Thomas Blake out of the blue wanting to hire him to find the murderer now stalking his daughter MacKenzie. The only problem seems that the suspect seems less and less human with every murder. Decent sci-fi crime nvel and was a good way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • American Nightmare on June 30, 2012

    Interesting novella of the downward spiral of a middle aged man who has done the right thing all his life and ends up with nothing, that is until he finds a purpose. Not a bad story, couple of editing flaws that don't really detract, just made me have to reread the sentence context but wasn't a bad way to spend an hour in the sun.
  • Grundish and Askew on July 04, 2012

    Imagine if Kurt Vonnegut found an unpublished John Steinbeck novel and gave it a rewrite. Then imagine in a drugged out haze Hunter S Thompson found it and rewrote it again, this book is what you would get. Losers Grundish and friend since childhood Leroy Askew can't seem to catch a break. Askew who has never raised his voice as long as Grundish has known him, goes into a killing rampage. Hiding from the law with Askew's Aunt, they get deeper and deeper into trouble. WOW. Greta way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Ten Typewriter Tales on July 22, 2012

    Another excellent book by one of favorite new author's. Mobashar Qureshi's books have not only been extremely readable but all of them very different and this one is no exception. To me of these stories are all about the decisions being made, either good or bad. Really enjoyed reading it and was a nice way to spend and afternoon in the sun.
  • The Old One on July 28, 2012

    Nice taut horror novella. Our intrepid hero, David, is out of work and stuck in the small town of Myrtle. After a run in with the town oddity, David learns there is something in the woods something big, dangerous and very old. Fun story and and a great way to spend time in the sun
  • Bingoed on July 28, 2012

    Sweet mystery story about a group of elderly females how try to find out what happens to one of the members of the community in which they live. Light hearted fun with some laugh out loud funny moments and was a nice way to spend the afternoon in the sun
  • Alone (Vampires and the Life of Erin Rose - 1) on July 31, 2012

    Erin Rose wakes up in an apartment she doesn't recognize to a face she doesn't know and no idea of how she got there. Knowing she lives in a world where there are two factions of vampires, the Spectavi, who only drink synthetic blood or from a willing victim, and the Sanguan who only drink from humans, willing or not. Erin spends a year working at a job so she can try to figure out what happened to her and whyshe has no memory of the past. With the help of new Sanguan friends Erin infiltrates the Spectavi world to find out who is telling the truth. The idea of this book is very good, the writing style works very well but the Erin character was just annoying. The build up was great but Erin's character was all black and white with no shading. Good try and a was a pretty good way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Campaign Promises on Sep. 12, 2012

    Too Short. I've now read several of Laurel Osterkamp's stories and all of them have been good and this one is just as readable. Witty, fast paced and well worth a look. A wonderful way to spend an hour or so in the sun.
  • Magical Stories on Oct. 13, 2012

    Well written short stories. I look forward to this arthors longer stories. My kids enjoyed them immensly. Exellent for story time and nice way to spend an hour or so in the sun.
  • Lucifer's Odyssey on Nov. 11, 2012

    Witty, Sarcastic and fun. This is definetly not a bible story. A bit confusing at the onset but once you get to about the forth chapter, everthing starts making more sense. Once you get passed the character names and get into the story this turns into quite the science fiction fantasy battle story. Excellent writing style allows you to visualize every scene. Good way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Become an Atheist - A Short and Snappy Guide on Nov. 18, 2012

    Just what it says short and snappy. Witticism in progress. Just as laugh out loud fun as all his other guides.Check themout for some quick and light heated reading!
  • Get to the Point! - A Short and Snappy Guide on Nov. 18, 2012

    If marketing jargon leaves you befuddled then reading this guide will help you laugh at it. A quick look at how the marketing world even in politics has learned to say a whole lot about nothing. Good Job!
  • Become a Dictator - A Short and Snappy Guide on Nov. 18, 2012

    I've told everyone at work that some day I would rule the world and now have found the how to guide. This was the first guide I won from this author and now I have read almost all of his guides. Check out the list of Guides and let your mind soak up the funny.
  • The Hawk And His Boy on Nov. 23, 2012

    The authors notes say that this author took ten years to write this trilogy, It was time well spent. Young thief Jute is hired to sneak into a house covered in magic wards to steal a box from its upper most tower. The agile boy has no problems making it into the house and getting to the box but the pull to open it is beyond his control. Now that he has let loose what was held magically within, his terifying adventure begins. Intricate plot and charactes made for an enjoyable afternoon in the sun. On to Book 2. Great Job!
  • The Telescope Builder and Other Stories on Dec. 09, 2012

    Excellent set of short stories. All are well written and make you want to know what happened next. Also every story seemed to make you wonder what could have happened to you at that point in your life. Great way to spend an afternoon in the sun. GREAT JOB.
  • Dumpsterotica: How Dirty Are You? on Dec. 15, 2012

    Loved it but too short. Can't wait for the next installment!!
  • A Feast of Flesh: Tales of Zombies, Monsters, and Demons on Dec. 16, 2012

    Wonderful anthology. Every story is very readable and should give you a good case of the willies if read after dark. A great way to spend an hour or two in front of the fire.
  • Storyteller on Feb. 13, 2013

    Enjoyable enough fiction about a summer a wandering youth spent learning how to be a bard. Well thought out story and has a lot of excellent historic references that were fun. I found it a little boring and was annoyed with the way each chapter ended. All in all this was not a bad way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Haunted on Bourbon Street (Jade Calhoun Series: Book 1) on Feb. 26, 2013

    If you like romance then this novel is for you. I am a sucker for these types of books because you can put them down and come back with out losing the story. The story is a good one and the steamy romance scenes are worth a look but this like a lot of others makes me want to strangle the female leads. All in all a pleasant enough way to spend the day in the sun.
  • Denibus Ar on March 20, 2013

    Wordy archeological adventure following a group opening an unknown tomb. If you can get past the first couple of chapters it is a pretty good read. The story does pick up speed and become a decent thriller type story and other than the beginnng being so slow this was an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Toren the Teller's Flight, Book 2 on April 05, 2013

    The contuation of the story of Toren, the worlds most powerful wizrd. The second book is just as readable and enjoyable as the first. Excellent young adult fantasy story that really does pull at the imagination of possibilties. Well written and can not wait for more from this auther. Good Job. A Nice way to spend the afternoon in the sun!
  • Fantastic Realms on April 11, 2013

    Heavy language makes for a rough read but if you can get past it there are some really well written stories in this anthology. Mr Turner is showing that he can write with each story and book getting better and better. All are fantasy world driven with swords and sorcery abounding and one or two have a laugh out loud story line (Magical Entities Not for Sale). Fun read and a great way to spend an afternoon in the sun!
  • Brandon Marlowe and the Alpha in the Omega on April 23, 2013

    Second Brandon Marlowe is just as readable as the first one. Brandon is still at school and still adjusting to being the newest ranked member od the school. Between school and practice, Brandon rarely has time to search the Omega Files for information on his brother much less do research on the son fo Zues, Alpha. Join Brandon and his squad as they practice and learn for the battle or all battles with the Gods. Easy to read and nice read for young adults and I look forward to the next installment. Nice way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • Lion (Vampires and the Life of Erin Rose - 2) on May 05, 2013

    Enjoyable Segway Novel. The second in the series follows Erin as she learns to live as a vampire. Going from extreme fear of them in the first story to becoming very deadly as one in the second. Erin contemplates what life is as one of her fears. She also decides revenge is her best foot forwards as she looks for the vampire Christopher who she thinks killed her best friend but comes to find out it was an even older vampire names Alexander. Follow Erin into battle as she tried to come to terms with her new life. Nice way to spend and afternoon on the sun.

Can she and her friends help stop them from releasing hell on earth. Follow Erin and her friends as they hunt for the reliquary that will end the world as we know it. Good series and great way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
  • The Golden Spark: The Legend of the Great Horse (Book 2) on June 08, 2013

    Not having read the first book, I was leary about reading the second and not being able to "get in" to the story. Honestly I would love to read the first only because it is the beginning. Even though this was not a stand alone novel I had no problem enjoying and following the story of 16 year old Meagan's adventures through time and historic events. If you like horses in any way then read this series. I not only enjoyed the story but liked the horse facts throught out. I can not wait to read the third part to the series. It was a nice way to spend an afternoon in the sun.
