Indie Book Blog reviews The Hall of the Wood

The Indie Book Blog reviewed The Hall of the Wood, giving it 4 out of 5 stars. This review isn’t new, but somehow it slipped under the radar and I didn’t realize it was there until I recently pinged IBB to see if they’d review The Five Elements. Scott, the proprietor, pointed out the review to me and offered to move my request up the queue (turns out he’d already added it to his list, but just hadn’t gotten to it). Scott was also nice enough to publish his review as a comment on

As an indie author, you have to like what IBB is doing: buying and reviewing indie works gives us a sale and some exposure in the process. Guess you never know if that exposure is going to be good or not, but that’s the nature of the business.

Fortunately, Scott had some nice things to say about The Hall of the Wood:

The story is well written and has some interesting characters and plot twists along the way. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the fantasy genre and for [...] why not give it a try. I am intrigued enough by the author that I will be purchasing his other book in the near future to see what else he has to offer.

Thanks, Scott!

I’ll post his review of The Five Elements when it’s available.

5 out of 5 for The Five Elements

I thought it noteworthy enough to at least to mention that I received my first review on Amazon for The Five Elements. What's even better is that it's a 5 out of 5!

PSheehy says:

This is a very good book that is a fun quick read. The characters are very well developed and believable. The plot is very well developed and the world that Mr. Marlowe has created is rich and complex. With surprising twists in the story and a climactic ending, I strongly recommend this book to anyone. I eagerly await Mr. Marlowe's next book.
