Smiley and the Hero: A Review
Zia McCorgi by Cooner
So Last night about four days after starting it I finished Smiley and the Hero by Ryan Campbell (AKA toob) and I figured I'd give my thoughts.

[As a disclaimer FurPlanet the publishers of Smiley and the Hero published my book Save the Day. I doubt this gives me a bias but hey best to know.)

Now then onto business: Mr. Campbell has written a solid novel here with well designed characters who develop over time, technically well executed, engaging situations, and a very solid plot. Overall good command of tension, action, dialog and anything else that can make for a fun and enjoyable read. Very well done. I'd recommend Smiley and the Hero to a lot of people. In fact I can think of a lot of my friends who would enjoy this book. I had a good time reading it and you might too. Though it is rather gory and violent in parts so if you dislike graphic violence in your books, to the point where you'll stop reading for a few hours like I had to, I'd give it a miss. If that isn't a turn off or you can ignore that sort of thing then you'll find Smiley and the Hero not only a good book but probably one of the strongest and most entertaining showings for 2011 from the furry writing set.

So my final vote says get Smiley and the Hero by Ryan Campbell. You'll find it not only an enjoyable read. I'll probably go back and read this again sometime soon. I really think this is a strong book and a good one. When people talk about encouraging good furry literature this is what they're talking about. Buy this book to encourage more writing like this. Smiley and the Hero is an excellent read. I sincerely recommend it to anyone with $10.00 who wants to get a great book they'll read again and an enjoyable adventure.
