Reviews of Rise, then Descend by Nick Stokes

tony parsons reviewed on March 31, 2014

Climbing the Sun Mound, Monks Mound, or the Cahokia Mounds.

Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written could be personal short story (book). It was very easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios & a great set of unique characters. The only thing I see wrong is it needed to be all paragraphs/indent. That said I will rate it at 4/5 stars.
Thank you for the free short story (book)
