Smashwords book reviews by Lee E. Shilo

  • Annalea, Princess of Nemusmar on May 24, 2010

    Ah, such a grand tale. Told in the very language of the sea. I began reading with skepticism, and by the third sentence realized I had been hooked by a master dream weaver. Many times I picked a point in which to stop reading, and many times forgot that very spot. This tale is both captivating and intriguing. The characters were so real, I felt like I was one of them. I'm not saying which one:) I do not much like the sea, but I loved the story. Give it a read and I am confident that you too will not be disappointed.
  • Annalea, a Princess in Exile on Jan. 16, 2011

    Annalea, A Princes In Exile This second book on the Annalea series, captures the everyday lives and tribulations of family affairs. I found it most entertaining! Stephen James Shore has succeeded in emulating the nuances of family humor, tenderness, and tragedy to the highest degree. Full of exceptional, and controversial subject matter. Stephen shows no apology for this raw, unmasking of what most families keep locked away, deep in a closet, and its forgotten recesses, never to see daylight. I am refreshed at the honesty of his writing, and the telling of this tale. Lee E. Shilo leeshilo@yahoo.com
  • An Iron Hand Way: TetsuTe on March 10, 2013

    This book, An Iron Hand Way: TetsuTe is quite possibly one of the best information ebooks out there. For Martial Artists, it would be an invaluable addition to their collection of styles and techniques. As a Sensei, Shifu, Teacher, or simply Jerry Leverett, he brings meaning, tradition and respect to the world of Martial Arts. This book I keep in the highest esteem as one of my most prized possessions of my Martial Arts book collection. Master Shilo - Diamond Palm
  • An Iron Hand Way: TetsuTe on Nov. 01, 2013
    (no rating)
    As a book on Hand preparation for the Beginner(s) & the intricacies of getting started, this book is well within its range of information. This is a beginners book, not a definitive guide to the whole process. As it states in the Description, it is an Introduction. I am sure that more books are on the horizon to be written in increments, so as to release the information on a steady learn-able pace. Master Shilo ~ Jing Tao Kung Fu Diamond Palm
  • An Iron Hand Way: Tetsu Te II on Jan. 10, 2014

    Sifu Leverett Jr. has done it again! What a great companion book to go with the series. Short, but chalked full of meaningful information. Highly recommended! Master Shilo ~ Diamond Palm
  • The Light Heart Of The Dark. on March 04, 2014
    (no rating)
    This collection of Poems, of strife and lose is raw, yet sensitive to the soul. I enjoyed them greatly. A brilliant collection.
  • The Light Heart Of The Dark. on March 04, 2014

    I give this collection a five (5) star rating.
