Smashwords book reviews by Leonie Harlington

  • George on July 24, 2014

    Loved this short story. It is, as the blurb says, (very) dark and erotic, but the writing is pared to the bone and the characters come to life on the page. Well-written and believable with enough ‘darkness’ to give me more than one delicious shiver.
  • Watching the Watcher on July 26, 2014

    Enjoyable short story with good dialogue and a nice little twist at the end.
  • All Foes on July 26, 2014

    A wonderful book cover and a very thoughtful story. Good world-building in very few words. Love the ending!
  • Con Sangre: The Book of New Life, I on July 28, 2014

    Stunning. Beautiful world building and character development. Dark dystopian world with a solid background. Great prose and well-crafted writing.
  • Time Enough To Die - The Watchmaker - Book One on July 30, 2014

    Twisty, complex and a very satisfying ending. Nice to have a well-written story free of SPaG errors and with solid, believable characters. A little confusing in a couple of places but it all pulled together in the end. Definitely one to re-read.
  • Roth on Aug. 07, 2014

    Thoroughly enjoyable, complex, twisty and clever novel. Well edited and with a couple of surprises in the plot! I grew to really like Roth!
  • Ethan Justice: Origins on Aug. 08, 2014

    Great fun as well as twisty, intricate and thoroughly enjoyable! The author has a very 'readable' voice and this is well-edited. Definitely a series to follow.
  • Drive on Jan. 24, 2015

    Loved this short collection of short (very short) scenes. Definitely worth reading, and I will be reading other works by this author. 5 Stars.
