First let me start off by stating that L. B. Graham has been one of my favorite authors ever since I first devoured Beyond the Summerland when I was in Junior High. I love his works, Binding of the Blade is truly an inspirational series; however, Avalon Falls did not live up to that standard. I enjoyed the plot, the location, and the characters. The length was perfect for that storyline, but I noticed many errors: spelling, sentence structure, capitalization, etc. This made me think that whoever edited the book made some severe mistakes, and some pretty obvious ones at that. I would have given the book a higher score, technically my review would be a 4 out of 5 stars sans the unfortunate errors. All in all, I enjoyed Avalon Falls, and I can't wait for R3 and The Darker Road! Keep up the great work L.B.

Avalon Falls is billed as a crime novel - which it is - but it is also much more than that. The mystery has as much to do with its characters as with its crimes, and while the developments of the case kept me turning pages to find out what would happen next, the mystery surrounding the characters quickly became just as interesting. I found myself engrossed in the people, their secrets, and their (sometimes complicated) relationships. Descriptions of everyday activities are brought to life, as though the reader is present in the events and conversations. Graham's dialogue rings true to reality, and the plot rolls along easily, but never forced. Reaching the end of the story, I felt that I had just gotten to know Jimmy Wyatt, and hope to know him more, perhaps a bit further down the road.

After establishing himself in the fantasy genre, Graham brings his storytelling acumen to crime fiction. The true genius of Graham's writing lies in the subtitle: "You can't hide from yourself." While a murder investigation proceeds throughout the novel, protagonist Jimmy Wyatt both tries to help chase down the perpetrator and run from his own intimated demons. Graham is able to intertwine these two threads in a way that draws the reader into the story, yet he never sacrifices one at the expense of the other. The writing is well-paced and the main characters are strong and memorable. The tale ends with the reader knowing he has sailed through the seas, not only of a good tale, but through the hallmarks and depth of human nature, as well.

I enjoyed Graham's Binding of the Blade series for its story-telling, even though character interaction and dialogue was sometimes clunky. So I expected to be engaged similarly with Avalon Falls. The build-up hooked me and propelled me to finish the book quickly, but the end-result was unsatisfying. The underlying mysteries of the main character's personal life and the murder he's trying to solve didn't turn out to be that grand or deep. The last book I remember being this ratcheted-up and then let down by was Stephen King's Duma Key.

But based on my past experience with Graham, I'm considering Avalon Falls a one-off event. I'm eagerly looking forward to his next books, which sound promising.

L.B. Graham's new book is very different from his past works. He has left the fantasy genre and entered the crime scene. I was thrilled to hear that he was writing again and went into the book with great anticipation, I was not disappointed.

Jimmy Wyatt is a realistic and likable main character. He honestly felt like someone I could meet on the street. Level headed and humble he was a refreshing break from the impulsive and arrogant characters that normally inhabit fiction. His romance with a local lady was sweet and natural.

The story moves slowly, but it is never dull. This is not a fast-paced action story. There is some action, two murders, a chase scene, and someone is threatened at gun point, but it is not thrown in just to make things exciting. The plot is never rushed or crammed, rather given room to progress as it needs to.

The main suspense comes from the murder mystery. I was very confused and frightened because almost every character I had been introduced to was a good, kind person. This left me to wonder which of those people was living a double life. I can't say too much more without giving anything away, but when all is revealed it is shocking and sad.

I spent a very happy summer evening reading this book. I hope that at some point in the future Jimmy Wyatt will be back with a new adventure for us.

I generally prefer to read long books that are part of an even longer series. I enjoy getting to know characters over months or years instead of the few days it takes me to read a shorter book. I also generally stick to books with dragons and wizards rather than police procedurals.

I enjoyed Graham's “Binding of the Blade" series and decided to give “Again Falls" a shot. I feel like I knew the characters when I finished the book, even though it's less than 400 pages.

The book kept me up reading at nights, which has not happened in some time. There were several times when I thought I had the ending figured out, only to be pulled to a new conclusion chapters later. I like that. I don't want to know the ending of a book when chapter one is finished.

A great read for voracious readers like me as well as for someone who might find longer books daunting.
