    Definitely kept my attention. Nice concept. I'm grabbing the sequels so you know I liked it a lot.

    I just finished Shatter and I really look forward to seeing the story continue. This was a tremendous novel. Scratch that; it is a tremendous novel! I downloaded Shatter because it was free. Plus, my mother's maiden name was Mock and I wondered if we might be related. I was born in Cincinnati, too... None of that stuff mattered, before long. I was caught up in the events, the characters, the world you created. I don't know when I've been so thoroughly involved in a book--and I not only read constantly but publish books under the name CWG Press. I wish I'd had the chance to publish this one. Like all good fantasies, this book has clear villains and heroes, good versus evil, and world-changing events. Naturally the characters we follow are involved in the most significant actions and reactions. The good people are mostly flawed, and the bad ones often have redeeming qualities, and we don't know for sure on which side some of our favorite characters will end. We like them anyway, though. We just wish they would make the right decisions. Why do they keep missing what is so obvious to us? The novel has depth and breadth too, and I can't wait to see what happens next.

    I was impressed with this book and look forward to the rest of the series. The characters were well developed and the action effective. Thanks.
  • We the Enemy on Feb. 19, 2011

    I enjoyed We the Enemy. The concepts it explores offer a unique new approach to problems that exist today. It's an interesting cross between thriller, romance, political fiction, and sci-fi. A quick, fun read. I don't agree with some of the ideas--but I find it hard to disagree with them, too. And they are truly different. Oregon in the novel has radically changed its system of justice and its gun laws, and the new setup works a lot better in many ways. Since I frankly don't think the current methods work, I am almost tempted to urge similar reforms in real life. Perhaps I'll have to ask Ray Rhamey to talk about it on my radio show.
  • The Unsuspecting Mage: The Morcyth Saga Book One on Feb. 19, 2013

    An exciting and fast paced book. I would have given it four stars, if it weren't for the extremely annoying mistakes in grammar and spelling. Most severe was a complete lack of concern about keeping the proper tense and number, even within a sentence. It's sad that a writer with such obvious talent did not choose to get some editing help. The characters are engaging, the story interesting, the settings nicely depicted. If only the errors had been properly addressed... I may go on with the next book in the series, because I do want to see what happens next.
