The other day, I made a post about John F. Leonard’s Call Drops novella. I mentioned that I had read a review of it on Leonard Tillerman’s (@mywritersnook) review site. Well, today Leonard sent me a notification that he has reviewed Demon King, and the review is live on his website! It’s an incredibly flattering review, and I am extremely grateful to Leonard for reviewing the book!
All his reviews are excellent–he has a knack for sharing the exact percentage of the plot that’s necessary to hook you, and yet never spoils the read. He writes well, and I’m happy to recommend his site as a great place to check out new books to read. You can find his site here: http://leonardtillerman.com/ Head on over and a give it a look!
On to the review:
I’m not going to just cut and paste it here, because indie reviewers need website traffic as much as the next guy. Here are a few quotes to whet your interest.
“What do you get when you mix elements of fear, mystery, suspense, foreshadowing and a perfectly gripping plot? Give up? Well… if all of these elements are woven together in a seamless piece of writing, you will end up with one fantastic horror story! This is exactly the case with Erik Henry Vick’s novel, Demon King.”
But wait, there’s more!
“It is very difficult for an author to have the readers empathize with characters to such an intense degree. For this to happen, they have to be fully developed and believable characters who the reader can identify with. Once again, [Erik Henry] Vick does a masterful job in this regard. This is no easy feat as there are numerous characters in this story who are living in two different and distinct time periods. Nevertheless, almost all of them are developed to such an extent that the reader easily becomes engaged in their dilemmas.”
He goes on:
“If you are a fan of perfectly executed horror, then I would highly recommend this book!”
You can see why I’m flattered by this review. Many thanks, Leonard! You can read the full review here: http://leonardtillerman.com/demon-king-by-erik-henry-vick/
In addition to the great review, he makes the extra effort to copy his reviews to both Amazon and Goodreads! That’s incredible, in my experience with reviewers, and only makes what he does all the more impressive.
Now, the more jaded readers might be thinking something along the lines of “yeah, why shouldn’t he do that? He gets paid, right?” Wrong. Leonard Tillerman doesn’t even accept free copies of the books he reviews. He doesn’t want any appearance of bias, so he buys a copy of the books he reviews out of his own pocket! Further, he does all of this because he wants to help indie authors like myself get exposure.
Mr. Tillerman, I salute you!
