Smashwords book reviews by Elizabeth Hull

  • Unbreakable on Dec. 13, 2009

    Unbreakable is an intense, action packed, character-driven story, set both in the U.S.A and war ravaged Bosnia. This war brings all sorts of nastiness out of the woodwork for those fighting and conditioned, by past atrocities, to view inhuman treatment of enemies acceptable as just retribution of how that enemy treated them. Into this hellhole go Rosa and Pete, both journalists covering the conflict. While aware they are in a danger zone, neither are prepared when they are drawn into the carnage as helpless victims and separated, not knowing if the other lived or not. To survive, they have to hold on to their love for each other and their hope that friends will come to their rescue, but will this be in time? This story is an edge of the seat, nail biting read. Once started, it is impossible to put down. Highly recommended. Elizabeth Hull, Senior Managing Editor of Flash Me Magazine http://www.wingedhalo.com/
  • Let the Dragon Wake on April 13, 2012

    The lyrical beauty created in this world is outstanding. Add to that a group of well-drawn characters, a plot that is totally different from anything written before and you have a fantastic read. The characters aren't drawn as perfect people. They are flawed and they must grow as the story progresses, as it does to a startling and satisfying conclusion. Highly recommended.
  • Keeping Secrets on May 15, 2013

    This is a truly unique book and is commended for the courage to step outside the box of the same old, same old. The author has effortlessly spliced together the genres of romance and horror. I haven’t seen that done before and I thoroughly enjoyed the read. Without giving any spoilers, this is a story about the decisions made and the circumstances leading up to the evolving of a character. Would genetics have scored over upbringing? What motivated a person to act as they did? The characters shine forth as neither totally good, nor totally bad, but instead, totally real. The circumstances leading up to life changing decisions are skillfully interwoven in such a way that the reader can make up their own mind. At the end, there is sympathy for all the characters, irrespective of what they have done to arrive where they did. It is believable and heart wrenching. Highly recommended. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

  • The Skeletons Of Birkbury on Dec. 04, 2015

    This is not the first book of Febry's I have read and it won't be the last. I am totally hooked now. Fiona and Peter, the main characters are detectives in the police force and when an old tree blows down a skeleton is found in the roots starting off a murder investigation from a crime decades old. What I adore about these books is the intricate plotting and the well-drawn characters. This is a glorious admixture of the styles of Agatha Christie and P.D James. How the story unravels is not possible to be guess, despite the clever clues and that is just how I like a mystery. I am hoping for a new book of this series very soon as I wish to keep following Peter and Fiona. This is a great read!
