Smashwords book reviews by Third Phase

  • The Zombie Room on Oct. 16, 2014

    Pretty good. Liked the ending!
  • Man of Clay on Oct. 23, 2015

    "Man of Clay" captured my interest within the first few pages, despite being a tad bit slowly paced. I learned very quickly that it isn't a book that uses action to grab your attention, rather it uses the human element - namely through the primary character, Connie. You can tell from the get-go that this is going to be a very involved and character-driven story, which is certainly the type of story that I prefer. A good character story keeps you reading in the same manner as a mystery novel, except instead of trying to discover the identity of the killer, you're reading to understand the relationships, motives, thoughts, and feelings that play among the people in the story. It takes a capable writer to pull off a truly compelling character-driven story, and I have to say that Osborne did a great job from the start. You can't "phone in" this kind of story, which is why most independent writers don't try to tackle them. When someone does it well, as she has done here, it's worth taking note. I definitely recommend giving it a read.
