Smashwords book reviews by Mary Clyde

  • A Vampire in the Vatican 'Brotherhood of the Sword' on Dec. 04, 2013

    This author was recommended to me as I'm not much of a book reader. I found it a good story. I liked the Inspector and his off sider Franco. Full of surprises. Didn't get bored at any time which is what I like in a book. Easy to read and a terrific ending. It was a pleasure.
  • The Pardon on Dec. 04, 2013

    Written simply like a screenplay (no bog down) this made it thoroughly enjoyable to read from start to finish. Great story too.
  • The Hall of Condiments on Dec. 08, 2013

    Got to be the stupidist book I've ever read. I agree with W. Addison Gast and I found it near impossible to follow. The cover sucked me in. Bad mistake on my part.
  • Pulchritudinous Book 1 on Feb. 02, 2014

    This is a wonderful book for children. I even enjoyed it myself and to find a 'teaser' to book 2 at the end was an added bonus. Book2 I feel will be just as much a pleasure to read as the first book. Poor Puck, he really gets into unhappy situations when the rabbit Lepus is around. I have no doubt he will show more caution from now on when he sees that rabbit. lol. Can't wait for book 2.
  • That Moment... on Feb. 08, 2014

    What a wonderful collection of true short stories. I agree with the other reviewers, it definitely gets you thinking. C.C.Champagne is a very special person and like so many others I am pleased that she has shared these experiences with us. I had to read it in one sitting too :)
  • Symbol of the Order on Feb. 08, 2014

    Well written and thought provoking story. I thoroughly enjoyed this short 'Templar' read.
  • Sons of Monkeys - A New Study Of The Human Animal By A Down On His Luck Chinaman With A Zoology Degree on July 15, 2014

    Fantastic book by a very talented and well educated man. I love Mars Q's sense of humour and by combining this with his knowledge, he has conveyed information to us with a new slant on evolution and man in general. Most enjoyable and educational piece of work.
  • Pulchritudinous Book 2 on July 15, 2014

    Our family have been waiting patiently for book 2 in the Pulchritudinous series and once again the author has given us a delightful story. The boy Puck has found himself in more trouble which he has caused himself but the wizard is being very tolerant of the situation. He goes on a journey where he learns more things about the world around him. I always love the interaction he has with his best friend Willow. The pictures once again are great and as Kevin Fontain said, the last picture is wonderful. I highly recommend this series for young and old.
  • Beware.....The Moon is Full on April 29, 2015

    Linda writes a variety of flash fiction and this one is great. True horror. Well written. Short and sweet. A good ending which is difficult to do with such a short flash. Well done. I enjoyed it.
  • Ruck Nor on April 29, 2015

    A very good quick sci-fi flash. I'm looking forward to reading the next.
  • Ruck Nor 2 on April 29, 2015

    This is turning out to be a wonderful story. Facinating world Craig has discovered. Looking forward to seeing what happens to this poor guy next.
  • Nun with a Gun on July 15, 2015

    Another wonderful mystery story that I found easy to read. I don't read many books as I'd rather see the movie but a Vampire in the Vatican and Nun with a Gun was a pleasure. Funny, sad and quite exciting. A lot of story and a lot of mystery. Some wonderful surprises that kept me reading. I'm enjoying this series very much and look forward to more.
  • The Aesinas Codex on July 22, 2015

    Another exciting story in this mystery detective series. More places and more problems for the inspector. I found it quite exciting and the surprises kept coming. Some funny parts again which seems common in these books. Very enjoyable. A lot of mystery and some very clever deducting by the inspector. Very easy to read and follow as it's written simply which makes it relaxing. I like both him and Wilhelm, they work well together. Another great story and I hope and wait for another book.
