Smashwords book reviews by Angie Lisle

  • Kitsune-Tsuki on Oct. 16, 2012

    An onmyouji mystic is hired to protect a bride on her wedding day and when a kitsune, a fox-woman, begins playing pranks, the mystic must figure out: who is the kitsune? A well-written who-done-it style story refreshed by the utilization of Japanese folklore. The story quickly pulled me in and left me wanting more. I love that I didn't solve the mystery until reaching the very end of the story! My only complaint - I wish a glossary was included to make it easier to look up the Japanese terms that were unfamiliar to me. I will definitely watch for future stories by this author!
  • Elements of the Undead Omnibus on Dec. 17, 2012

    A typical zombie plot with graphic violence and some gore - this kept me coming back every time. I wanted to know who would die next. There are a few editorial/organization issues but the action-packed story utilizes Noir-style prose to move scenes along quickly. Mr. Esmont isn't afraid to kill his characters, which allows the plot to be unpredictable. The only expectation I kept was that anyone and everyone would probably die. I received a free copy of this book from LibraryThing in exchange for a review.
  • The Eclective: The Haunted Collection on Nov. 25, 2014

    I averaged the ratings of each story to come with the collection's rating: 3-stars. Then, I added a star for effort - the stories are complete, well-written, and edited. I loved a couple of the stories - so much that I stopped reading to look up the authors and wound up snagging a couple other free collections offered by The Eclective. The downside is that those stories I loved were balanced by stories I didn't care for - not unusual for a collection of short stories. Since this was a freebie, I don't feel like I wasted my time.
