They must be on the payroll, or at the very least, friends of the author (2 of the reviewers don't even show as having purchased this e-book, thereby making their reviews appear a bit suspect). A friend of mine on Facebook who knows the writer asked everyone to purchase this e-book, so I headed over to Amazon, and I liked the cover art so I thought, why not? But as the saying goes, and is proven here, you can't judge a book by its cover. Based on the two reviews already given to this collection prior to my purchase, I was expecting something amazing, especially when the book's title included the words "Original Uncut", but sad to say, maybe a heavily edited/cut version would have been an improvement.
What is lacking in Mr. Harrington's book? For starters, character development and any semblance of a plot in any of the short stories included in this collection. His previous books where he is listed as a co-author must have included very little of his input because the amateurishly written stories here are almost painful to read. It's as though the author had these great stories with beautifully descriptive details in his head, then assumed you could see into his mind, so he neglected to put those details into the actual story. None of the stories are even original in concept. As an example [spoiler alert!] Secrets is just a poor-man's topsy-turvy Ladyhawke. I could go on but I won't; you get my drift.
Not to be cruel, just honest, to the author I say, it's fine if you want to self-publish, just don't expect the reader to be impressed. To other readers out there, I recommend that you don't waste your money on this poorly executed e-book.
