Smashwords book reviews by Diane V. Mulligan

  • The Outcasts on June 24, 2015

    I was lucky enough to get an advance copy of THE OUTCASTS, and once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. Set in a strange world where humans, elves, wizards, and morphs (creatures who can change form to be either animal or human in appearance) live in neighboring realms with tenuous alliances and frequent fighting between species, a band of heroes emerges when outcasts from difference species realize they must unite or perish. There are many great things at work in this story. The characters and complex and while they are united as outcasts, each has his or her own conflict as well. The plot is full of surprises, and the author does a great job of balancing action with introducing the reader to the world of the story.
