Reviews of The Tesla Secret, Book 1 by Mike Wells

Hannes Birnbacher reviewed on Jan. 15, 2020

This is another proof the quality at smashwords is declining. No author is forced to give away his work for free, but if they do, readers (and as I am informed, the Smashwords conditions) expect that is a complete book in it's own right.
This one has 124 pages of narrative and ends in the moment where the scientist, the mystic and his beautiful daughter are confined in the huge estate of a filthy rich criminal. They are in danger either to get killed immediately or fall victim to a catastrophy unheard of. If they manage to escape, they will be murdered by the global adversary of their kidnapper. End of book, go buy the follow-up.
Usually I look into a book before downloading. There are too much of even the free ones which are not interesting for me personally or which are just too bad. Then I read it and if I like it, and it has sequels I can afford to pay for, I purchase them. Here you could not find out in advance that this is not a complete novel, but a clickbait only, as there is no online reader for this one.

Contrary to my usual procedure I doubled my rating for this book. It is well-written, exciting, its spelling is outstanding (don't remember a single error) and it has some elements of real Science-Fiction, "what-would-happen-if". I still will not purchase another book from this author. Don't want to risk to arrive at the end of a paid one and find out it has no end either, luring me into spending still more money.
