Cracked Spine Book Reviews: The Caged Graves by Dianne K. Salerni

The Caged GravesThe Caged Graves by Dianne K. Salerni
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The blurb on the front cover said "This book is impossible to put down." Well, true enough. I read it in three days and the second evening I stayed up way too late because I didn't want to stop reading. The Caged Graves isn't categorized as a mystery, but it is that and a good one. The story has a bit more romance than I generally care for, but it didn't get in the way of my reading enjoyment. I liked this book so much, I gave it to a friend who also writes historical fiction in approximately the same time period. Five stars and recommended.

My story "Transfusions" appears in the collection STORIES FROM THE INKSLINGERS. Inspired by Flannery O'Connor's WISE BLOOD and The X-Files, "Transfusions" is weird fiction in which a father undertakes and epic journey to save his daughter.
Will Diamond is determined to save his daughter's life and during that quest discovers the far reaching, life altering consequences of making promises.
“Transfusions” by JM Reinbold is an intricate tale of dying, healing, promises made, and promises kept—all with transfusions…of blood, of power, and most of all, of belief. ... all these stories are unforgettable, each in its own way. So pick up a copy of STORIES FROM THE INKSLINGERS for yourself—it will become one of your favorite books, I promise you." -- Carson Buckingham

"Transfusions" was full of brilliant description, three-dimensional characters, and a quite riveting plot. In short, it was just like its seven wonderful predecessors - only...more." -- Michael Dunne
Available from Amazon for Kindle for just 99 cents!
