Smashwords book reviews by Richard Rashke

  • Daugher of Sparta: Chapter Three on Feb. 01, 2016

    Kristen LePine does the impossible. She draws you into a mythical world of Greek Kings and Princesses, Gods and Monsters. Her authentic detail, sense of place, and character development make that improbable world come alive with adventure and mystery. DAUGHTER OF SPARTA, however, has one glaring flaw. LePine makes you wait a month for the next installment. Richard Rashke
