  • 3 stars: pretty good – I enjoyed this book, there were positive elements of this book
  • 3.5 stars: Good – this was a good read; maybe a great concept that fell short on execution
  • 4 stars: Very good – well worth the read, when I think back I remember the book and it has left an impression on me
  • 4.5 stars: Excellent – almost a perfect read; a book that that sticks with you after you are done 
  • 5 stars Outstanding – a must read – A unique story line with memorable characters 
  • 5 plus stars – this will be awarded in rare occasions when a book keeps me wanting more. It's the book I couldn't put down and stayed up all night finishing it.

    Query
    The Narcissist-A Dark Journey
    Literary Fiction/ 65,318 Words
    In my latest novel there is an underlying theme that the reader is unaware of. The reader may completely disagree with it, however by the end of the reading journey she/he will embrace it.
    "The Narcissist-A Dark Journey" is a psychological trip through the psyche of one Charlotte Prentice.
    She is breathtakingly beautiful, extremely intelligent, and dangerous. She will do whatever it takes to receive the adoration and success that sustains her ever demanding personality.
    Who is this woman whose beauty is only over shadowed by her intellect? Charlotte herself is unaware.
    Outwardly she is a woman who fights discrimination and poverty; an advocate of education and freedom. To the onlooker she is perfection. But inside, there is something darker lurking, something that pushes her single-minded plans forward without empathy.
    Her life is filled with tragedies that she cleverly planned and executed, while maintaining a safe distance from them.
    Her life is also filled with romances, again that she cleverly planned to nurture her successes, even in the shadow of her sexual dilemma that she must keep secret, or in her psyche, lose everything.
    She and her ilk are the scourge of our society, driven to success to satisfy their needs at any cost. They are the business leaders and politicians who woo us with deceit and shallow promises. Sometimes we are amused by them. Other times we are stricken by them. But make no mistake: they are not amusing; they are calculating and dangerous.
    Is she guilty of her crimes and horrific acts? In The Narcissist-A Dark Journey", the reader is Both judge and jury, and finding the truth can be very complex.
    be very convoluted.
