If there is one indie author you can never go wrong with, it is Leland Dirks (and his partner Angelo, of course). Leland’s work can be easily compared to the best of what the “traditional publishers” can put out, now or anytime – he’s that rare independent author that stretches beyond mere genres and is readily capable of producing true literature. Leland has a handle of making his characters so human and so believable that when you start reading one of his books, you get so drawn in you don’t want to put the book down.
Rainbow’s Edge is definitely one of those books. This is just a simple story of two people finding themselves again after years apart. But the way it is written, well, it draws you into a special world – a time long gone with both the bad and the good of any era – and the journey you will take into these lives will surprise you, especially when you get to the end.
Like all of Leland’s books – like any truly good book – you get a little angry when it’s over because you want more. After a bit of soulful review about what you just read, you realize it was just right amount of story – you’ve read just what you need to read about these characters. That’s what made them like people to you.
