Smashwords book reviews by Distinguished Press

  • The Portal Between on Nov. 05, 2011

    I found myself drawn into this book from the first page. She dragged me through the story and intertwined my thoughts with the lives of the women within these pages. Everything was created with great life and energy. The story is enjoyable and I couldn't put the book down. Ms. Barnard has found herself stuck with this devoted fan of her writing and incredible creations.
  • Spinward Fringe Broadcast 7: Framework on Dec. 09, 2012

    I have been waiting with baited breath for this book. After discovering this author earlier this year, I devoured this series and couldn't wait for this book to be released. Not a surprise to me, he didn't disappoint me. This incredible book is once again full of twists, turns and intense emotional moments. It is one of those books that once you are drawn into it, you feel compelled to finish, and for this one, when you do, you're settled. If you like happily ever after, this isn't the book for you. If you like a touch of grit, realizim and tangible characters then you need to start with the first broadcast and read every book including this one. Thank you once again for an incredible book.
  • Wiggle Twins on Dec. 18, 2013

    While I was getting one child ready for bed, I pulled this book up online for the other. My son is 9 and he said this book is 'interesting'. Great job. Getting this lil guy to read a whole story (from any reading level) w/o a grumble is a real challenge. Thank you :)
  • Nightcat - Kitty Castle Series on Jan. 06, 2014
