Smashwords book reviews by Irene

  • It's Dark Inside (collection of short stories) on Jan. 20, 2013

    Entertaining stories that will give you chills. Scary without the gore factor present in so many horror collections. Very well written. My absolute favorites were Out of Order, and The Promise.
  • Dark Fantasy: A Mike Angel Private Eye Mystery on July 24, 2013

    Dark Fantasy is the 7th book in the Mike Angel series, and while you may want to read them in order I find I had no trouble getting into the story even though I have a haphazard way of jumping from book to book out of the order in which they were written. One of the things I love the best about the Mike Angel series is the way that facts are woven through the fiction, for example this story touched a bit on Howard Hughes bizarre and OCD-like behavior in his later years. It adds a great deal of realism to the story and more than once I found myself googling dates and names of gangsters to see what else was true, sort of like a bit of a history lesson wrapped up in an entertaining story. I also love how it all comes together at the end, nicely tied up with no loose ends to leave you hanging.
