Smashwords book reviews by Ashrae

  • Killers on Oct. 14, 2011

    Experimental Psychology, Nature or Nurture, Serial Killers, Thrills, Chills, Great Action Scenes, Twists and Turns, this book has it all and more... Anti-hero and Lovable Bad Boy, Prosper Snow returns following on from The Kult in a new psychological thriller that flows along nicely and then about 3/4 of the way in, delivers such a stinger that beyond that stage it is simply impossible to put down... The subject matter draws from actual psychological experiments that have been carefully researched, so much so that the resultant story comes across as perfectly feasible - and scarily so... Certainly gave me a lot of food for thought, it's nice to read a book that not only delivers a great read, but also gives the reader something to ponder on after reading... Can't wait for book 3 in the series...
  • The Kult on Oct. 14, 2011

    i was drawn to this book from various promos & plugs on forums and the like and i must say, these people werent wrong... a gripping thriller from start to finish with nicely fleshed out (literally sometimes - see what i did there) characters and enough description to set the scene and atmosphere without detracting from the story, which twisted and turned to a conclusion that i wasnt quite expecting... although i must say that i was screaming at the kindle screen about the significance of some of the clues... quite often i could literally see the action in my mind as i was reading it, the story-telling was so real... the hero, or anti-hero i guess, has you rooting for him even though he is a bit on the dark side himself, a bit of a bad boy and i am delighted to see him return in Killers...
  • The Great Rock N Roll Doomsday Tour on Oct. 30, 2011

    Basically I read to escape from life, from its mundaneness, its stress and all its other annoyances... This book was absolutely perfect to escape into... amazingly colourful characters and a twisty, turny, convoluted (but perfectly followable) storyline peppered with amusing comparisons left me laughing out loud on more than one occasion... A gem of a book which is totally delightful but doesn't take itself too seriously. i am off to seek out more of this guy's stuff...
