Smashwords book reviews by S J Cavanagh

  • Angelica on Nov. 15, 2012

    A pretty good idea, and the prose flows well, but it rests too much on cliches (though it does acknowledge that). The voice of the protag is very flatfoot detective, which has none of the desperation of the premise and drains some of the tension. Apart from that, great story.
  • Metro on Nov. 15, 2012

    I hadn't come across Steen's work before. He's the real deal, able to paint atmosphere and draw you into the story. Though you can see where Metro is going early on, the strength of the protag's voice and the depth at which everything has been thought through keep you reading. Definitely worth checking out.
  • Feed the Bear (A Flash Fiction Story) on Dec. 19, 2012

    A little simple and predictable for my tastes, but well executed.
  • Rear View on Dec. 19, 2012

    Good for the length. The prologue gives away the ending, and is told not shown though.
