Smashwords book reviews by Mandy White

  • Bright Links Dark Links on Oct. 03, 2011

    Is the ability to see spirits a gift or a curse? Jeannie sees her unique ability as a detriment that makes her abnormal. For her, even the simple act of driving past a cemetary can be a terrifying experience. But when the ghost of a frightened young boy appears to her and begs for help, she finds it impossible to refuse. Bright Links Dark Links is a chilling and suspense-filled ghost story that captivated me right from the beginning. It has a level of creepiness similar to that of The Grudge, and I found it difficult to put down once I started reading. Set in Singapore, this well-written book speaks easily to readers from Western countries or anywhere in the world. Looking forward to reading more from this talented author. Highly recommended. Five stars!
  • Betrayed on Oct. 07, 2011

    Betrayed is one story that wastes no time. The reader is thrown right into the thick of the action right from the first chapter and from that point forward I found the book nearly impossible to put down. Brook, a wealthy woman, is torn from her safe and civilized lifestyle when she is abducted by what appears to be a group of car thieves. The reader feels her pain and terror as she is cruelly brutalized by her captors and cheers her on as she tries to escape. The horrific experience launches Brook into unfamiliar territory, adventure and betrayal, leading to a satisfying conclusion. I will definitely be picking up other books by these outstanding authors.
  • The Gingerbread Man: A Scrumptious Erotic Fairy Tale on Nov. 08, 2011

    A deliciously twisted little story that combines two of my favorite things: men and baked goods. Can you get any more decadent than that? Take a few minutes to read this. It's quite tasty with a cup of coffee to dunk it in!
  • The Becoming (Book 1) on Dec. 06, 2011

    The Becoming was a thrill ride from start to finish. If you’re a fan of apocalyptic zombie stories, then you absolutely can not miss this one! Jessica Meigs has crafted a fast-paced and suspense-filled story with characters that are likable even when they’re not behaving in a very likable manner. Cade, the lead female character is a badass with a heart – a former Israeli soldier whose skills with weapons are unsurpassed. She reminds me a bit of Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley character in the Aliens movies…if Ripley were an Israeli sharpshooter. She’s tough and lethal but still very human and capable of emotion; characteristics which the author portrays with great success. The story begins with Cade and her best friend Ethan essentially running for their lives in a world suddenly gone mad. As new characters are introduced, the dynamics of the group continually evolve, just as they would if the situation were real. The author has blended the traditional flesh-eating zombie scenario with a few new twists that are unique to this story. I found Meigs’ zombies much more terrifying than the traditional type because they appear to have a certain level of intelligence and the ability to organize and strategize. They are bloodthirsty hunters who stalk their prey in packs before moving in for the kill. The other terrifying thing about this story is that it’s not an entirely impossible scenario. The disaster unfolds when a deadly virus escapes from the CDC in Atlanta. The Regenerative Psychotic Virus transforms its victims into psychotic cannibals. The regenerative part is hinted at throughout the story but any avid zombie fan can figure out what it means: The virus regenerates victims to the extent that they don’t stay dead when they logically should be. Voila! The result is some of the scariest zombies ever to stalk a post-apocalyptic world. My only disappointment was the abrupt manner in which the book ended. However, knowing that this is just book one and the second volume is waiting in the wings, it’s just a temporary setback. I will wait eagerly for books two and three because I get the feeling after reading The Becoming that things are just starting to heat up!
  • Deadlocked on Jan. 09, 2012

    This zombie apocalypse story is based on a terrifying premise: bioterrorism. Deadlocked is page after page of breathtaking suspense right from page one, where we find our main character, David, faced with a terrifying personal reality just before the rest of the world goes to pieces around him. When chaos strikes, David is at work in the heart of the city, far from his home and family. He must leave the safety of the office building, braving crushing crowds of panicked people and violent flesh-eating zombies to make the perilous journey home. His singular goal is to reach his wife and daughters and get them to safety. Will he make it? More importantly, will they still be alive when he gets there?
  • Rain's Fairy Tale on Feb. 12, 2012

    This is one of the most captivating tales I've read in a very long time! This is not a young adult book - It's suited to more mature readers or older teens. It's a bit difficult to categorize because of its uniqueness, and that's part of its charm. It's sort of a tragic modern-day fairytale...a story of forbidden teenage love starring Angel, AKA Rain, an angst-filled heroine who lives between two very different worlds with one foot in each but never belonging in either. In most fairy tales love conquers all, but in this one, even the purest and most powerful love can't make everything all right. It's the sort of story that sticks with you long after you've finished reading. Definitely worth the read.
