Smashwords book reviews by Lexie Conyngham

  • In Gods' Hands on March 14, 2013

    Excellent atmosphere and background, the whole mad, dark confusion of carnival, and the imagery suits the subject from the start. The ex-lover's punishment is fitting and hilarious and the characters are well-drawn in so short a space. I even liked the clever title!
