Quotes Automaton by Alana Woods --- It's difficult to decide where to begin with 'Automaton'. This is an exemplary novel by a master of the craft. Set in Australia, it is so deep, so well written, so intelligently thought out and flows so smoothly that I felt like a participant and personal observer within the events, rather than a reader who was sitting comfortably in my office as the story unfolded. Woods' experience as a Court reporter makes her tale as authentic, intriguing and interesting as any you'll ever read. It's not a quick, shallow read - it's a real novel.

Quotes Imbroglio by Alana Woods---You probably won't finish this novel in one sitting. You'll have to pay close attention to keep track of all the different players in the programme. If you relax your concentration for a moment, you'll have to go back and do it again or be lost. Alana Woods has written a tale that is filled to the brim with deception, criminal impersonation, betrayal, greed, exploitation, sexual manipulation, murder, and some just plain pretty rotten people. There's only one character in the entire bunch that I'd consider inviting over for Sunday dinner. You'll have figured out who it is when you get toward the end of the yarn. In short, it's exactly what any card-carrying crime fiction fan is looking for. Read the entire review on Amazon. Quotes

Quotes Automaton by Alana Woods. If you are looking for a book that has a great storyline, deep characters, action and intrigue, you need to read this. In Automaton, the author draws the reader in with descriptions so vivid you feel as though you are living the book. The main characters are people to be discovered and delved into. And once you discover them, you realize that things aren't always as they seem. The twists and turns of this book keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. Just when you think you have everything figured out, your heart and mind will be gripped by the unfolding of events. This is a book for the intellectual and the romantic. Automaton gains my 5 stars and so does the author. Quotes

Quotes To avoid seeming biased I include this 1 star review of Automaton that appeared on Amazon recently. Alana Woods ---- Too slow. Too many characters. I could not withstand reading it and went directly from chapter 7 to 19. Suspicious 5 star reviews. Don't waste your money. Quotes

Quotes Imbroglio -- Yet another wonderful written book by Alana Woods -- I have learned that in order for me to enjoy a book I first need to enjoy the writer's style. It is rare for me to keep reading a particular author's line of books if I don't enjoy them or if the book doesn't keep me into the story. Well here I am, just finished Alana Woods Imbroglio. You just can't beat when an author has a movie playing in your head. Getting up the next day trying to make sense of the characters actions just to keep you wondering whats next.The story is gold, the style is platinum. It's a win win. I would recommend any of Alana Woods books. Quotes

Quotes Imbroglio by Alana Woods. Worth getting lost in -- "Imbroglio" is an absorbing plunge into the life of Noel Valentine: an ad executive who boldly pulls helpless David Cameron from a burning car. Normally such an act of courage would merit a heroine's welcome and afford her the accompanying spoils. But instead, Noel's deeds simply spoil her life. For soon, the man she saved--and the man who saved her job while she recovered--press into action every ounce of Noel's determination as she finds herself a damsel in distress. One spinning out of control and being dragged down by the powerful currents of a consuming conspiracy of corporate greed and lust. It confuses a clear view of who is Noel's friend and who is her foe. That is the suspenseful essence of "Imbroglio." Alana Woods skillfully constructs an authentic conspiracy-mystery that shines with strong characterization throughout. Quotes

Quotes Automaton by Alana Woods -- What a great read! -- I truly enjoyed reading this great story, sharing parts of it with my wife every time she asked me to turn the light off and go to sleep. I was really impressed with Alana Woods style of writing. The way she would make you feel the emotional rollercoaster of each character. Robert was my favorite, it was almost like you can really picture in your head what they are truly feeling. Clear as water. My wife read the book as well and now we are in Alana Woods third book. My wife and I recommend Alana's book to all of our friends and family. Alana is truly gifted. Quotes

Quotes Imbroglio by Alana Woods --- Thoroughly absorbing --- I have just finished reading "Imbroglio" by Alana Woods. "Imbroglio" is an intricately drawn story that centres on the main characters working to uncover what they perceive to be inconsistencies in the running and operation of a medical equipment company. The subsequent uncovering of a money laundering scheme places them in some very compromising and life threatening situations. I liked a lot of things about "Imbroglio", and among them was the way the author seamlessly weaves into the story subtle clues underpinning the actions and emotions of one of the main characters, Noel Valentine. I found "Imbroglio" a thoroughly absorbing read, and I continued to think about the believable and likeable characters well after I had turned the last page. Quotes

Quotes Imbroglio by Alana Woods --- Elegant writing, great mystery --- I got into this book at the onset as the author drew me in right away. It's interesting that I cared so much for the main characters, David and Noel, and yet as the book went on their human flaws along with the storyline really had me questioning them. But that's what made them even more human I suppose, their mistakes and choices along the way. It's full of mystery and elements that take awhile to put together, beautifully written and well crafted. Quotes
