A Sampling of Book Reviews
Reviews of THE WITCHER CHIME
“Green takes the old ideas about ghost stories and throws them out the window. This one knocked me for a loop and had me cringing. It’s emotionally traumatic, but handled delicately enough to keep me transfixed till the end. True horror hits you on multiple levels, and The Witcher Chime did that for me.”
“”The writing in this book was incredible. It was detailed and the flow was incredible. I really loved it. I would definitely read more of this author’s books just for the writing.”
“The Witcher Chime puts an original twist on horror, re-inventing Biblical terrors in a way that’s refreshing and suspenseful. The author uses a mix of psychological horror, wince-inducing physical horror, and suspense to keep you reading and on the edge of your seat.”
Reviews of SCALES
“I felt that this was an excellent first book, it had interesting characters and a well developed world. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope the writer writes more about this world.”
“The main draw for me with Scales was the protagonist, Tessa. She has a strong personal well of strength which is evident in everything she does. In a first person style book the person talking has to be sympathetic, enjoyed, and admired by the person reading it. The entire book rests on them. Tessa does not fail this test in any way. I liked her from the first page, and I never stopped.”
“I don’t normally read this type of genre. That being said, I LOVED this book. The characters are captivating and keep you wondering what is next. The twists and turns of the story are very involved, and I couldn’t put it down. Tessa was a wonderful main character.”
“This book just arrived today and I have already read almost half , I can’t seem to put it down. A great read right from the first page! I hope to find more from Amity Green.”
“A good book that keeps you wanting to read more. If you like a good urban fantasy I would suggest this one.”
