I Liked The Way This Was Written
Honest and engaging.
Delightful and Engaging
I have to start be saying that the artwork on this is outstanding.
Couldn't Get The Point
From the beginning, I tried to get the point of the book, but it was very difficult.
Creepy yes, scary -- not really. Not really looking for scary though. I was looking for interesting and that's what I got.
I Couldn't Quite Get Into It
First of all, the writing was either well done, or it wasn't, which made me have to re-read some parts for it to make sense. For example:
"A week later, I was caught behind a school bus flipping briskly through my notepad."
Really? A school bus is flipping through your notepad?
...I was blown away.
Too Little Substance and...
...too many mistakes. Geez, but this really had the potential to be a cute short fantasy read, but it has far too many issues as it stands now.
The only reason for the four stars instead of five is because it was predictable at times.
First of all...
...please get a professional cover made. I nearly by-passed this because the cover is really bad.
I appreciated book 1 and loved how book 2 broke down each herb; however, it was book 3 that really captured my attention.
A Bit Confusing
Maybe it's the fact that there are four sections broken down into more lengthy sections to explain the characters from each dynamic and a fifth section to quickly summarize the previous book.
Shorter Story Than You Think
Even though the ebook is only 46 pages, the last 18 pages are a sneak peak at another of the author's works. So, this is really a short story.
...down memory lane. These stories, each no more than a page or two in length, are cute anecdotes from a life well-lived.
The story wasn't terrible.
Two business partners. One murdered, the other accused and on the run. An explosive opening moves to a slow burn that builds until you are fairly chomping at the bit to reach the end.
Could've Been Better
As it is currently, this is a simple story; one you could read easily without having to think hard to understand what is going on.
Not only was the story delightful and simplistic, but the watercolors were very lovely.
...and not pandemic related, although the author does throw in the occasional reference to COVID to justify the title hype.
