Leaden Skies sighted on the horizon . . .

I always hold my breath until I get the first review on a new book—a review, that is, from someone unrelated to me and not obligated in any way to "like" it (i.e., unbiased data).

So far, three reviews of Leaden Skies have emerged, all written by early readers of the ARC version of the book. LJ Roberts was first out the gate with a review, now posted on Goodreads, closely followed by Diane (both can be viewed here). C.K. Crigger also posted a review on her blog.

I love hearing from readers on what worked and what didn't. I always take the "this didn't work for me" comments under advisement. And, if I see a "pattern" of comments regarding something in particular, I tuck that into my thinking for the future.

Now, in the time-honored tradition of picking out "favorite bits" from reviews to broadcast:
... Parker’s wonderful characters and excellent dialogue enhance the qualities of this book. What really sets it apart, however, is that indefinable voice which makes a particular author such a pleasure to read...I highly recommend starting at the beginning of this wonderful series. —LJ Roberts

This book is the 3rd in a series of historical myteries set in Leadville's boom days. I enjoyed this one (as well as the prior two) and think that Parker does a very good job of transporting the reader back in time.—Diane

...Filled with history, action, and emotional realism, it’s a story that will leave you feeling you’ve made contact with the folks who live in Leadville. There’s never a dull moment; somebody is always trying to take advantage of someone else. Some folks are moral, some not. All are interesting. And the book ends with a darn good cliffhanger, making sure to leave you wanting more. —C.K. Crigger
