Smashwords book reviews by Elizabeth Barone

  • Queens are Wild on Jan. 10, 2013

    This was a fun read, with an intriguing and unique plot. I worried that it might be the typical, boring poli-thriller that I usually stay away from, but QUEENS ARE WILD dragged me in right away and kept me reading with its excellent pacing and innovative storyline. My only complaint is the occasional surplus of exposition—which is forgivable, though, because of the excellent pacing. I can't wait to see what Chaucer comes up with next.
  • The Card on Jan. 13, 2013

    I had a lot of fun reading this short story. The pacing was excellent, the tension kept building and kept me intrigued, and I liked how the plot was different from the norm.
