Smashwords book reviews by Angela J. Maher

  • The Ghost in the Water (2.2) on July 07, 2016

    A short story that is creepy, disturbing and sad. It adds to the overall portrait of the town of Refuge, but works well as a stand alone story.
  • Falquen's Nest on Sep. 25, 2016

    I loved this. Great characters with very real reactions to each other. The right ratio of sweet and romantic and sexy and conflicted. As I reached the end of each chapter, I just wanted to keep reading. I'll definitely be reading more by this author.
  • Plato's Cave (2.4) on Oct. 03, 2016

    Well, this was an interesting one. A gritty story, it gets wonderfully odd about half way through, culminating in a completely unexpected way. Looking back, I'm not sure who knew the truth when, if at all, but it's a great read.
