Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

Love and Betrayal come in many forms. In Mr. Wells’ novel, paternal and sibling love comes to the front; and betrayal is just around the corner.

A young lady’s life is turned into a confused state after an elderly woman reveals her true identity. The woman tells a fantastic story, but the girl believes her, because of something her mother had told her when she sixteenth.

Without informing anyone, she travels with the women to Europe. There she is surprised again with something that confirms the woman’s story to the one hundredth percent degree.

Here more twists are put in place, where betrayal of a loved one, who will be uninformed as to the events surrounding his betrothed. He will be played.

This is where Mr. Wells leaves you standing at the altar, so to speak. You won’t find out until you read on.

Review of The Puzzle

The Puzzle
 (Samantha Jamison Mystery)

Written by Peggy A. Edelheit

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

What would you do if the police came to your front door and told you your loved one had been murdered? This is the beginning of The Puzzle.

Samantha is in denial. How could this be? I just took him to the airport. How did he die behind the wheel of a rental car on his way to his hometown?

To put the pieces together in this hard to explain event, she goes to the source, trying to put The Puzzle together – to the people who knew her secretive husband best. In this quest, she becomes a new person, questioning and feeding off his boyhood’s closest friends, acquaintances, and the small town he grew up in.

Protecting his memory and not knowing the full extent of his endeavor, they are allusive when Samantha tries to get to the truth. It comes to light after much probing and self-evaluation by all who knew her husband well, including Samantha.

Ms. Edelheit’s writing is clear cut with no clutter. Her chapters are short, and to the point, forcing you to turn to the next (And the next,) looking for the answers yourself. It won’t take you long to get to the truth – it’s a fast read.
Good opening for a series with nine books in it. You might get hooked.

Review of Oblivion's Forge

Oblivion Forge
By Simon Williams

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

I have mixed feelings in writing this review. On the one hand, I know it’s a difficult task to write the first book in a series, but on the other, I believe it is the author’s duty to make it simple to read, so it will be a good launch for the series.

Oblivion’s Forge is not the end but the beginning of the Aona Series. Mr. Williams does an excellent job of developing his characters and plot. However, he has not made it simple for the reader – his audience.

As an avid reader, I got lost in the many unconnected plots until the end, which was a long time coming. I would have liked to have read a shorter version with fewer characters to follow.

When readers get to the final page, they will be left wanting more, because of the fascination of the subject – the beliefs of the human race, and how those ideas forge us toward our own oblivion – death. They may want to reread it to get a better grasp of the interwoven plots.

Long read that can be bought for $.99 on Kindle:
