review 1: I won a free copy through Goodreads First Reads, and I wasn't really sure what to expect.Turned out to be an interesting murder mystery that kept me turning the pages in order to find out who'd done it.The writing style left a bit to be desired though. I would recommend it to a teenager, or newer reader, but I found the style a bit too simplistic for my personal taste. Would have liked more description.
review 2: Crusher is an absolutely brilliant thrilling read! If you're looking for a book that will blow your mind, and you love an edgy mystery...this YA thriller is just what you are looking for! No matter how I write this review, it won't do Crusher the justice it deserves. It was refreshing to step away from the romance genre and be completely engrossed b
... morey this riveting story! I'm dying to read then next two books in the series, Incinerator and Shredder! Crusher is edgy, so many unexpected twists and turns that had my heart in my throat. There is absolutely nothing predictable about this read! I didn't want to put it down, I needed to know what was going to happen next. Mr. Leonard is a brilliant storyteller, his attention to detail added to the level of mystery and left this reader constantly guessing. Every situation had me on edge and every character had me wondering.Right from the first few pages, the witty english banter caught my attention. I knew Crusher was going to be my kind of read when the phrase "jammy sod" was said within the first few pages. This is a phrase I love, and use. I'm an english transplant so I get excited by english television shows and books. I was especially chuffed that there was a token Geordie. * inserts hand clapping* Why am I envisioning Gordon Ramsey with a Geordie accent ;-) Some readers may have a problem with some of the English slang used but I think for the most part, they’ll be able figure it out.The characters Mr. Leonard created are brilliant. Even the simplest character is so well-developed that they left me wondering what part they played in the grand scheme of the story. Finn Maguire is fabulous, his wit, the way he got himself in and out of trouble...Finn is a the kind of main character that keeps readers coming back for more. McGovern or "Guvnor" is a character I can’t quite figure out, is he a bad guy or is he a good guy, I'm dying to know. I'm still on the fence about Zoe again, Mr. Leonard has me guessing. Finn's Dad's pub mates reminded me of the kind of old blokes you would find in a local public house. They were brilliant.Crusher may be a YA thriller but don't for a minute think this book is only for young adults. This 40-something can't wait for more of this series. This read held my attention like few books have these days, and kept me engaged. Edgy storyline, well developed characters, an all around, thrilling ride…Crusher may just be what you are looking for from your next read. I know it was exactly what I was looking for. less
