Smashwords book reviews by Carol Shoar

  • Pulchritudinous Book 1 on Feb. 03, 2014

    I read a few parts of this book earlier and decided like so many others to grab the whole lot in one book. I love this story as do my children. It is a wonderful fantasy world with some very interesting characters and a lot of lessons to be learnt. It is a great book to help discuss issues and give them a better understanding about responsibility as well as many other things. The pictures are wonderful and it's nice to see the boy Puck and each character this way. My children have developed a liking for the little boy and look forward to book 2.
  • That Moment... on Feb. 03, 2014

    I found this book advertised at another authors website and decided to read it. It is so deep and meaningful that I admit almost crying a few times. I've never had a book affect me this way before. A wonderful experience, thank you.
  • Beware.....The Moon is Full on April 20, 2015

    I'm not really a fan of horror either probably why this was scary and gave me the shivers. Well written which I suppose added to the enjoyment. Yes I did enjoy it :)
  • A Reckless Moon on April 20, 2015

    I agree, this is a gentle story. Maybe it was the authors frame of mind when she wrote it. Totally different from Beware, the moon is Full, which was scary. I'd love to run into this vampire, as long as he didn't bite me of course. Ha!
  • Grave Misgivings on May 16, 2015

    Definitely weird, bizarre and strange stories. This author has a great imagination and I liked every story in this book. Thank you for the free read.
  • A Vampire in the Vatican 'Brotherhood of the Sword' on July 13, 2015

    An excellent mystery that had me hooked from the beginning. I like the Inspector, he does what is necessary to get the job done. He hunts out the vampires in the Vatican even though they are trying to kill him. They do manage to kill a few others along the way. Bodies keep turning up (and body parts) but it's not written in a gruesome way, very realistic. A believable story that I enjoyed all the way to the end.
  • Nun with a Gun on July 13, 2015

    Another great story about Inspector Martinelli. Totally different from the first book but it was good to see how he coped in a different country. New characters that are very likeable and a search for Nazi gold. A well put together story with a lot of mystery and a few scary parts. I enjoyed this read and look forward to the next book.
  • Pulchritudinous Book 2 on July 13, 2015

    Another absolutely wonderful childrens story. Wonderful to see this little boy again and his friends. More lessons and new locations. The pictures are spectacular and I look forward to the next.
  • The Aesinas Codex on July 14, 2015

    What a wonderful series. The Inspector travels to more places this time, London, Berlin and Budapest. Great to see him lose weight as we travel through each book. This is an intriguing story, a lot of mystery and full of surprises. I thought it was great how and where he discovered the Aesinas codex (loved that part). Little pieces of humour through out the book but it was scary when he got beaten up, well described. Wilhelm appears again and I really like this guy, quite a surprise here about his position in the Brotherhood. So much story and I was surprised it could be written in just over 45,000 words. A most enjoyable read and a great series. I hope there will be another.
