Smashwords book reviews by Sandra Novelly

  • Dale's Tales on June 05, 2012

    I helped ready these delightful stories for publication and I can truthfully say they are wonderful, entertaining tales for kids of all ages. Love 'em!
  • Bonded on June 17, 2012

    This series really kept my attention. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire series and can't wait for the next book. Not being able to write is torturous for a writer, and I sincerely wish you the best on recovery from your injury.
  • A Perfect Madness on June 22, 2012

    Where to begin... As one who wrote her senior high school essay on the holocaust and was inexorably moved by the research material she read, this book was nearly unbelievable and much more exhaustive in depth and passion. I could not, nor do I now, understand how difficult it must have been for all those souls involved and how deeply they must have suffered. To say I enjoyed this book would be a misnomer, but I was certainly affected by it. Everyone in a position of power should read this in the hope of preventing any sort of such horror from ever be perpetrated again on such a massive scale.
  • Flesh Traders on July 12, 2012

    I was caught up in the story and could barely put the book down. I certainly wish I had your gift for creating great characters.
  • Blood Ties on Aug. 23, 2012

    Absolutely loved this book and the next one, Blood Sport. The characters were so much fun. Can't wait to read more from this author (sorry I waited so long to review.)
  • Three Ghosts in a Black Pumpkin on March 30, 2017

    A blue stone and a black pumpkin found in the woods bordering cousins Nikki Sweet and Jack Brady’s grandmother’s yard transport the two children, accompanied by a talking skeleton wind chime, into the world of Creepy Hollow. They and their finds become central in a desperate attempt to save the town from the power hungry goblin, Hobart T. Hobgoblin and his ruthless accomplices by freeing the three Wishmothers from their imprisonment in the black pumpkin. Not only does this tale—perfect for ages six to young teens--entertain, it teaches important lessons on how to work with others to accomplish goals, how to face fear, the importance of safety, and how to make difficult decisions. A cast of endearing (and some not so sweet) characters, non-stop action and plenty of twists and turns engages and delights.
