What Are People Saying About “Ice?”

If you like my work, buy me a virtual cup of coffee at Ko-Fi.

Now that my week long promotion of “Ice” is over, what’s the final tally of reviews and ratings?

On Amazon, there are a total of four “ratings” which in this case is three reviews and one rating. The latest review was a four star, which is totally terrific. On Amazon, “Ice” has 100% 4 and 5 star reviews. Pretty cool.

On goodreads, it’s a tad confusing. The page says three ratings and two reviews, but I only find one review and two ratings. They’re all four star, so again, no complaints.

I have gotten a few messages from others saying they’ve downloaded “Ice” and will get to reading it soon. I know the feeling. I do the same thing since my reading list is long. Hopefully, in the future, this will spawn more attention for my wee indie novelette.

Now I know free stuff is cool. However “Ice” is currently available for a mere $2.99, so the price is still very reasonable. Here are a few of the descriptions:

This is an exciting adventure like no other, with dramatic scenery and gripping personalities. Intricately plotted, gritty and well written with distinctive movie quality.

I really enjoyed the build up and the banter onboard the sea vessel The Star between Captain Yong and his first mate Andrada, very much a sparrow and Gibbs tribute act. the story leads us to the mystery of Machu Picchu and the elusive Doctor Weaver , think a stuffy Lord Asriel in golden compass with his illegal experiments in the north pole. i was eager to find out what he was up to and keen for the crew of the Star to meet up with him.

James Pyles delivers yet another great tale of adventure! It’s got all the elements I’ve come to expect from James and many more. There’s some dinosaurs, as well as mytholical creatures such as giants and dragons. It’s a strange blend of high seas meets mythology meets fantasy, but it all works together in this unique world he’s created. James like writing stories that seem to bring together possibly realities as well periods of time. There’s always a portal leading somewhere with some dinosaurs jumping out and some terrible mystery to be solved.

This was an enjoyable read combining seagoing culture with fantasy elements. I liked the old school, Master and Commander vibe James has used throughout the book, as well as the parallel mythology woven into the story.

I hope you’ll consider purchasing, reading, and reviewing “Ice.” I can’t wait to see what you’ll say.

Support your indie authors and publishers. In a few years, we may be the only good storytellers left.
