Only the Lucky Grow Old: Reflections on Life from Those Over Ninety is an amazing read. I loved all these stories and I loved the life lessons. I think the author did something incredible by publishing this valuable and priceless book. Amazing is not a strong enough word to describe it. I recommend it to everyone!
You Say Goodbye by Keith Steinbaum is a fantastic read. It is a murder mystery with a lot of depth and interesting characters. The plot is very well thought out and it is moving. The characters are compelling, realistic and relatable. I enjoyed reading this book and I recommend it to all that like murder mysteries.
The Poe Consequence is a fantastic book. The writing is great, the characters are amazing. The author succeed in describing the gang mentality which was very interesting for me. The plot is very thrilling - the supernatural elements, the pace and the life lessons are more than well done. I personally loved the twists and the unexpected love story, the in-depth descriptions and the characters.
Relatable and realistic plot. I liked this book a lot. The author told a story that is absolutely worth your time. The plot is very well-thought-out, the characters are interesting. The journey is this book is long, the author described a huge span of the life of the main character. And yet, it all makes sense, I could relate to some parts, I was surprised by others. The end is thought-provoking, bittersweet. It does give the closure needed to feel you finished the book. I recommend.
This is the first time I read this author and I picked the Princess Smile even though it's the third book. I loved the writing and the characters. It is a fun, light read full of twists I didn't expect. I will definitely read the other books in the series! I recommend it a 100%.
Ruckus was a roller coaster of a book. First.... well Navy Seals. Who doesn't like them? Second, the story - it is deep and very well thought out, it is sexy and emotional, it is suspenseful and mysterious. The characters - very well developed, very intriguing and very real. I will keep reading the series. Actually - I can't wait to start the next! I absolutely recommend it!

Fantasy and adventure. This is how I can describe this book. The plot is so unique and compelling that I read it in one breath. There is no comparison with ordinary superhero stories. This one is so descriptive and there is no unnecessary fluff. I loved it! I recommend it.
Enjoyable story. The main character is well developed and the plot is interesting. The setting is described very well. What I liked in this book is that the relationships are very lifelike. It gives a nice insight into the Amish community which was very intriguing for me to read. Overall, I recommend this book.
A great addition to the Hell Holes series! A Slave's Revenge is an adventure - in fact, the whole series is. I fell in love with the first of the series and read all the others in one breath. This book answered so many questions I had, it is a prequel to the series. It was exciting and I'm glad the author did it. An absolute must-read for the fans of Hell Holes and all the readers who enjoy quality, compelling books.

Wow ... what a story!
It's not a novel at just 38 pages, but it sure feels like one. Night Swiftly Falling is the first book I read from Tricia D. Wagner, but judging by what I've just read it sure won't be the last one.
I will not retell or summarize the novelette's plot in this review, I just want to treasure anyone who is thinking of reading it to just go for it.
At first, I was caught off-guard - I was reading about pirates and treasure. A few pages in I understand, that it's all a game, a play-pretend, which I can resonate with - who hasn't pretended to be a pirate when they were little. So I'm thinking ""Ok, that sounds promising. A light read to pass the time."" But boy, oh, boy was I wrong.
I don't mean to demean the story, but it is not as important as the psychological and behavioral points of view. Don't let me scare you, it's not a dry piece from a psychological journal, not at all. The depth of the characters can surprise you, the seemingly ordinary situations Swift and Ash find themselves into are explained by the author in such detail, it's just staggering!
And, spoiler alert, the fox. The gentle beast's passing was one of those chapters that I will never forget. The detail of the scene, the emotion pouring out the pages, is simply sublime.
The joy and sadness that you're left at the end of this (relatively) short work of art are why I love reading books by indie authors. You, my friends, are the unsung heroes of this form of art.
In conclusion, I can highly recommend Night Swiftly Falling and I myself will be sure to go through Tricia D. Wagner's whole bookshelf in the next few days!
