Bethie Gold


Bethie Gold is a made-up name for another author who writes some very different books. Boring books. Bethie is pretty much the fun side of the other author, and writes whatever she wants, when she wants. How cool is that?

Smashwords book reviews by Bethie Gold

  • A Darkness Shattered on May 06, 2012

    A Darkness Shattered is a story of survival, coming-of-age, and, surprisingly, love, in the face of a zombie apocalypse. Michael is a nice boy whose parents are presumably dead due to an attack of zombies. Abby is an already-orphaned runaway who is used to survival on the run. The two meet up, accompanied by one of the most lovable pet characters I have read about in a long time, Herbie, a Newfoundland dog (if this book breaks out, and it should, everyone will want one). Although gory and somewhat sad in parts, author Bruce Clothier develops a realistic and credible account of what a national emergency could entail, whether by zombies, war, terrorism, or disease. His characters are believable and come alive in my mind, and their dialogue rings true. I highly recommend A Darkness Shattered to anyone who enjoys well-written action/adventure fiction.
  • Remember the Shagmeister on May 28, 2012

    In Remember the Shagmeister, Carol Schede explores the concept of “you can’t go home again.” Reluctantly engaged Katherine “Katie” Forrester is returning home to Tennessee for Christmas for the first time in many years, only to face some old hurts incurred by friends and family. During her visit, she is reunited with her former friend Rachel, old boyfriend Bobby, and the “Shagmeister” Troy. Bittersweet memories return for the holidays, as well as old feelings compounded by new events. Schede presents the reader with a fantastic romantic novel about growing up, forgiveness, and moving on.
  • Marching With Caesar-Conquest of Gaul on June 01, 2012

    Marching with Caesar is an extremely interesting account of a young soldier's experiences in the Roman Legion during the reign of Gaius Julius Caesar. Titus Pomponius Pullus is a young farm boy whose father has not much use for him, so he enlists in the Roman army. There, he demonstrates his skills as both a devoted career soldier with great potential. R.W. Peake traces first part of the fascinating career of Pullus in fine detail, from early basic training with his friend Vibius through the battles (ending with the "Rubicon") in graphic detail as though he himself lived it, all told from the main character's point of view. The dialogue contributes to the realism and authenticity of the time. Although I am not a history buff, I found myself engrossed in the story right from the beginning. This is is much more than a mere novel, but an epic story that I recommend highly for its historical accuracy and entertainment value. Seldom do readers find both; R.W. Peake will be a name to watch for in the Historical Fiction genre, especially since this is the first in a trilogy!
