Smashwords book reviews by Leesa Logic

  • Project Moses - An Enzo Lee Mystery Thriller on May 18, 2012

    I enjoyed this mystery novel. I liked the little aspects of the story such as sharing a bit about Lee's culture, such as tai chi. The idea of agricultural warfare was interesting and sobering. I loved that it was set in the 90s so Lee didn't have as much ready access to information or contacts as we do today.
  • The Man Who Crossed Worlds (Miles Franco #1) on June 24, 2012

    I received this book through LibraryThing's Member Giveaway in exchange for a review. I enjoyed Strange's world building. It made for a unique urban fantasy. It was part noir, part dystopian. Miles Franco is our protagonist with the ability to manipulate tunnels, which can be used to both travel to another world, Heaven, or distort our world's physics to work similar to how they work in Heaven. Because of this gift, he's sought after by both the cops and the gangsters, but he works strictly freelance, until he's blackmailed by the cops to work for them to investigate a new violent and deadly drug hitting the streets. Franco finds that all is not so simple, and with his wits, humor, and compassion has to get through some pretty terrible predicaments. And maybe save a few people along the way.

  • Kitsune-Tsuki on Dec. 14, 2012

    I received this book via LibraryThing's Member Giveaways. I wanted to like this story a lot more than I did. Unfortunately, I don't know enough about Japanese folklore and I got lost with all the Japanese words so it was hard for me to get into the story. Other than the language issue, this story is stylistically beautiful. I can see this translating into an animated short. I LOVE the cover. One scene that sticks out that I particularly liked was when Tsurugu was practicing his calligraphy and the ritual we as Americans sometimes take for granted: the grinding of the ink stone, the concentration on perfecting the letters, the annoyance when interrupted and the ink splatters on the page... The parts I understood I liked very much.
