In 1992, what remained of the once diverse and peaceful Yugoslavia began to dissolve. The war that followed presented a picture that was much different than the normal depiction of good verses bad. The casualties ran deeper than the physical wounds and no one escaped unscathed. This is my story of a search for a new home and the separation from those I love... a story of being uprooted.

Smashwords book reviews by Snjezana Marinkovic

  • Three Religions, One Killer on Nov. 05, 2013

    This book first piqued my curiosity based on the title and soon found that it did not disappoint. It was interesting right from the start and became even more thought provoking after each new page. It is a blend of three major religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) with a plot set between Europe and America. This book is filled with suspense and even though its context is historical it can be easily connected to our present time and current world events. What I liked the most about this book is the way the main characters slowly but surely engage the reader into the story so it can be experienced to the fullest. Three Religions, One Killer may have many messages, but one stands out - differences can bring people together, can bring peace in spite of many obstacles. That notion is demonstrated as the author described the main characters: “…working together. They haven’t given up on their dream.” I highly recommend this book.
  • Abyssal Sanctuary: Remnants of the Damned on Jan. 04, 2014

    Remnants of the Damned (Abyssal Sanctuary) is definitely one of the most unique books I have read. It has a very unpredictable plot with quirky but relatable characters. The best thing about it is that there are enough twists and turns to keep one wondering what is going to come bursting onto the scene. In fact it is easy to become addicted to this book as your whole body will tense like a coiled spring. At any moment I was ready to snap if I was interrupted or had to set the book down for any reason. It's as if I was rendered unable to do anything else but get to the next page. There is no doubt that I will be looking for more books from this author. His exquisite writing style paired with inventive storytelling takes readers on a journey they would have never expected. I highly recommend this book, and look forward to a sequel.
