Smashwords book reviews by lesleymc

  • Following My Toes on April 30, 2011

    Enjoyable read. I liked Laurel Osterkamp's light, witty style of writing. The charaters were interesting and the story line kept me engrossed. I thought the minimal use of 'psychic ability' was well grounded and added to the story rather than swamped it. The underlying mystery kept me guessing, and successfully remained light when it could so easily have had a darker edge. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a little mystery and a little romance wrapped up with natural humour.
  • Death After Midnight on May 14, 2011

    I enjoyed this book, a real page turner. Although I hadn’t read Vol 1 I had no problem reading it as a ‘stand alone’ novel. It began slowly introducing the characters, building up momentum as the story unfolded, ending at breakneck speed with ‘une grande finale’. The futuristic and fantasy element was incorporated at the same pace in tandem - nice touch. The characters were very interesting and well rounded, I could easily believe they had a past. Perfect for a movie adaptation. I shall be on the lookout for other volumes in the quartet.
  • Legacy - Book One of the Balancer Chronicles on June 06, 2011

    A cracking good read. Loved the light hearted way in which the character of James using the written word and telepathy relays his own history whilst explaining the concept of ‘Balancers’ (protectors of mankind) to Katrina his great great….Grandaughter and newly emerged Balancer . The depth of explanations could have, in lesser hands, been tedious but Chris Adonn made it extremely interesting and writes with natural humour and compassion. This book made me laugh and cry I was so caught up with the characters. In essence she made me care and want more. Can’t wait for Book Two.
  • Twenty-Five Years Ago Today on Nov. 06, 2011

    An enjoyable read which became a page turner half way through and had a killer of a twist at the end. There is also a sprinkling of romance which adds to the storyline. The writing style was clear but perhaps overall lacked dynamics hense my rating. However I would still recommend it as a good read if you like a 'whodunnit' and enjoy trying to guess who did it.
  • Last Man Through the Gate on Jan. 25, 2012

    Received this Time Travel SyFy novella free from LibraryThing and was looking forward to reading it however I was just getting into the story and interested in the characters when it ended all too soon. Very descriptive and atmospheric but as it stands I felt too much was left unanswered, plenty of scope for a sequel. Would make a good read if fully developed into a novel. 3 stars for the story so far.....
  • The Eyes that See - A Prelude to the Balancer Chronicles on Jan. 25, 2012

    A prelude to the Balancer novel I read last year . The Eyes That See is a short, simpler introduction to Balancers. An enjoyable read which wets the appetite for the books to follow. One to watch.
