It's a new school year at Hawley Lodge and this time Luke Brownlow is sure that everything will go smoothly.

Smashwords book reviews by A. J. Braithwaite

  • The Death Trip on April 04, 2010

    A chilling premise and a well-constructed tale. I liked the side reflections on the nature of attraction and affection. A gripping read.
  • Write Good or Die on July 11, 2010

    Some great advice here for just-starting-out writers (and probably ones who've been at it for a while, too). I particularly enjoyed Kristine Kathryn Rusch's piece on discipline (oh so terribly true) but there is something useful in each of the chapters. Thanks for making this available for free!
  • Little Miss Straight Lace, Book One of the Unbreakable Series (Free Romantic Suspense) on July 24, 2010

    A thoroughly enjoyable read. Kept me glued to my computer for a day and a half. A great mixture of romance, pharmaceutical shenanigans and pure escapism. Thanks for sharing it!!
  • Snow Burn on Dec. 28, 2010

    A quick read, at under 30,000 words, but an enjoyable one. Two teenage boys, camping in the snow, rescue a man who turns out to be an escaped convict. One of the boys is the son of Cambodian refugees, who believes that everyone has the capacity to act well. This belief is sorely tested when the convict decides that his only means of escape will be to dispose of his rescuers... Believable characters and dialogue, with a good introduction to ethical questions as a side order.
  • Smallworld: A Science Fiction Adventure Comedy on Jan. 04, 2011

    Hard to describe this book, but it's a good read. In a future where time has been decimalised, a small colony on a tiny moonlet copes with an interesting range of potential threats, several of them homicidal. Some of the details are wonderful - the genetically modified McChickens, which "tasted unaccountably of dill pickle", made me laugh.
