Whoa – I just discovered that reviews for my books on Amazon.co.uk don’t show up on the US site. And that being so, I only just found this little gem of a review about Deuces Wild: Beginners’ Luck:
A friend suggested this author. I loved this book. I loved that the author used actual scientists as her sources, and the characters were engaging and interesting.
Thank you, Amazon UK Customer! (And you’re right; I do have a scientist who checks my work – I’m surprised I haven’t driven him to drink already!)
And don’t forget, my good and dear friends, that for this month, the book is on sale!
I was blown away by this review!
the ART of story telling
Just loved reading this book. The characters, the flow, the story telling made it a very nice read. Too many authors get so technical that it is at the expense of the most important aspect of writing. . . . .the ART of story telling. After completing this book, my next action was to order the second book. I also picked up all three books of another series from this author because I know the caliber of storytelling so I know it will all be delicious reading. My review is in what I buy, and as you can tell I put my money where my review is.
An Amazon reader said my book Sword’s Edge was “a gem of a novel.”
If you haven’t read it yet, you can pick it up for a mere $0.99 this month! How often can you buy a “gem” for less than a dollar?

It is a truth universally acknowledged that writers are needy people; we crave feedback.
So imagine how happy I was at finding new reviews for the Sword’s Edge Chronicles.
This one specifically is for Sword’s Edge:
I’m not typically a sci-fi reader. Hey, I had trouble with Narnia the first time around. That said, I really enjoyed following Tam as she is lambasted with discovery after discovery about herself. I had trouble putting it down. I wanted to know the secrets surrounding the other characters in relation to her. In fact, there was so much “biography” and “history” to be uncovered in her story, that I found I could follow it easily. I’m eager to read the other books in the series.
And this one is for the whole series (wheee!):
I’ve just finished reading (a few days ago) all three of the Sword’s Edge novels (including the prequel). Bought and downloaded to my Kindle. I thoroughly enjoyed them — they completely blew me away! I’m absolutely amazed at what Loriendill’s written — characterization, creation of an entirely new universe, etc. I want more! Please tell me more is coming!
To both reviewers: thank you so much! I’m thrilled you’ve enjoyed my stories. And yes, more books are coming. The next one should be out by fall.
Ooooh, here I’ve been concentrating on the Sword’s Edge Chronicles and out of the blue someone (thank you, Reviewer! ❤ ) posts a review of the poor, neglected second book of the Deuces Wild series:
“I am a fan of L.S. King and I absolutely love the characters of Tristan, Slap, and Carter. I have read all of the books with these characters and can’t wait to read more of their antics. The characters are well developed and the stories are fun and captivating. I can’t ever put them down.”
If you like raygun-zapping space opera, check out Stacking the Deck!
I eagerly awaited the sequel to SWORD’S EDGE and was highly gratified when I finally got the opportunity to read it. The story and the characters who carry it moved forward in their history logically but with unexpected and marvelous twists and tight action that kept me glued to the pages. It is going to be difficult to rein my impatience until the next novel is released.
What a nice review of Children of the Enaisi!
Here’s the review, if you want to read it for yourself on Amazon.
I was so focused on getting Stacking the Deck published by deadline, I never noticed I had two new reviews for the first book of the series posted in August! Then yesterday, another one was posted! w00t! (Thank you, reviewers!)
So if you haven’t read Beginners’ Luck yet, perhaps these reviews will nudge you to give it a go:
