In ” an Oyster-Shell- An amazing story with a shocking end that will have you counting the days down to the next release.
The Pearls – Holy mother of cliff hangers batman. I was not sure if this book was a part of a series or not and about had an aneurysm at the end. I was in literary shock until I jumped on Goodreads and was assured this is a series. That was close!
The storytelling was just fantastic. This author tells a really good story. She uses great character development with laugh out loud humor to tell a tale that will keep you turning the pages.
The point of view from Jack on occasion really made the story come together. Jack’s a tough character and the only way to understand him is get inside his head. Jack Hunter is one of the better developed characters I’ve come across in a long time.
The Sand – The author needs to tighten up her writing craft. The prose was a bit on the wordy side and could stand to be condensed.
