Smashwords book reviews by Andy Szpuk

  • Bright Links Dark Links on Nov. 02, 2011

    Bright Links Dark Links revolves around the story of Jeanie and her ability to see beyond the real world. Her longing for a life partner is a strong study of the need for love, but also of self-doubt – Jeanie is anxious about revealing her powers. She meets Sam and inadvertently gets involved in thwarting a supernatural scheme to raise the dead. Bright Links Dark Links is a story that shines – the themes of tradition and modernity are interwoven well, and Jeanie and Sam’s relationship takes one or two twists and turns before they are plunged into the maelstrom of a spirit world where evil forces are invading and causing mayhem. It's a compelling story, both thought-provoking and moving, as the reader begins to question what is real or not real, and how events are influenced by forces beyond the control of ordinary people. It is a thoroughly entertaining read, with buckets of tension throughout. Recommended.
