In the Gap

This story is something out of the ordinary for me. I had never come across a plot like this until now. I truly enjoyed reading it and getting to feel some of the emotions that the writer expressed through his characters very well. The imagination of the writer is commendable and I think the characters that he portrayed in his story came across as well constructed. At the end of the story, though a poignant one, I felt the relief of the main character, Tyler, who I feel deserved the happiness of meeting his Redeemer after enduring much tests and pain. A very engaging and remarkable story.

The Curve In the Road

I think this is one of the best writing I have come across so far. The intensity of the story and the portrayal of the main character, Cooper's depiction of feigning errors and forgetfulness just to be diagnosed and considered normal is brilliantly put forward. I also love the detailed description of the scenes surrounding the storyline as I could picture it so concisely and clearly. The author s writing style is great. Kudos!!

True Colors

I find the story written with a touch of flair for the different languages used to express sentiments. I also love the quotes written before the chapter begins. They are meaningful and get a reader ready to expect something along those lines in the upcoming chapter.
The settings in Italy and Florence are places for romantic indulgences. The descriptions are vivid and clear.
I loved the quirky manner in which the characters are portrayed and their emotions are well expressed too.
Just some grammar issues but otherwise the story is very well=written.
The author comes across as someone with a bold way of telling a story. An enlightening read.

A compelling read

The story is quite compelling and I think achieves the desired effect on a reader - creepy and bone-chilling. To this, I think the author has succeeded in her mission to produce a thriller.
The mother's demon and her childbearing each year as a sacrifice to keep Ana alive is quite unnerving. Something different from what I have read so far. Keep writing and best of luck - shobana

Interestingly Told.

The story has a good plot, and the writer has succeeded in putting together a cast of characters that amplifies it. She has especially brought out Cora's emotions well. Though, some of the writing needs to be re-evaluated for grammar and punctuation, overall it is written with much enthusiasm and imagination which makes it an engaging story.
Well Done.

Absolutely Engaging!

I loved this story. It has all the makings of a blockbuster movie - intrigue, drama, romance, wit, and interesting dialogue. I didn't for a moment feel the boredom that sometimes come with reading a book.
A great job of writing it I should say. The last chapter left me wondering if Lucifer was finally dead!

AGNI

The first thing that came to mind when I started the story was that it had a very good story line. There is so much imagination put into this story, and if it is constructed better, will make it a very enlightening one.
I must commend the writer for his enthusiasm which he portrays in his characters. He writes as he thinks.I could visualize his determination in putting this intricate story together. I encourage the use of Grammar to check punctuation, grammar, etc.

Overall, it has the makings of a great story and wish you the very best in your writing endeavors.

Frost Lock

This story intrigues as it interests a reader from the start to finish. The writer's intention to reveal the plot is clear and concise. The scenes are portrayed vividly, that as one reads, you can envision both the surroundings and emotions explained therein.
The last chapter is emotive and I like that Olga is indoctrinated as a werewolf, in the end. When I started reading the story, I felt sorry that she was in a wheelchair.
Overall, I would recommend this story as a "very good read."
Wishing you the best,

What stood out most for me in this story is the honesty and discipline that the author had to see through to achieve his aim. He clearly is an inspiration to anyone seeking to make dreams happen in their life. Gregory has delivered the last punch wisely. He has given anyone who reads this story, his ideas towards living a fulfilled life and pushes them to reach for the stars. Ultimately it is his willpower and strength that shines through. Definitely one of the most inspiring stories I have ever read.

Keep Your Promises

Generally the story line was good and even quite compelling in certain instances. You have so much potential and it is a great plus point that you have written a book at your age. There have been quite a few grammar and spelling errors. A few of the paragraphs were quite repetitive as well.

Keep writing and just as I have learnt in the writing arena, there is always room for improvement!

Ladies Close Your Eyes

Overall I found myself imagining the scenes described so vividly and with clarity while reading the book and could picture them as it were.
There was certainly a lot of creativity in the writing with the right element of keeping the interest of the reader intact.

I liked that it came with a song as well as it built up the suspense to the story. Makes a good story line for a book.
