While I'm far from any kind of expert (school of "I know what I like"), I thought The Belial Stone was well written. The story was well assembled and enjoyable. My only critical comments to the author are to be careful with character POV descriptions that exceed the character's demonstrated knowledge (an every day person would probably identify "machine gun looking weapon" but probably not think "AK47s") and the use of cliche-descriptions (the ground bucked like a bronco... the car pealed from the parking lot... ? hmm) . Good descriptions elsewhere in the book provide evidence the author can do better. The only other comment I will make is about the narrator, who mispronounced a few words that I would have thought common (SUFFice for suFFICE), but I am also often brought up short by correct alternative and dialectical pronunciations, so maybe it was my ear's as much as the narrator's slip. However, I do think the narrator was off in her Israeli and Scottish accented English.
In summary, the title of this review says it all.

Right in the middle. Have read much better and much worse.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Belial Stone?
The attack on the compound until the end.
What didn’t you like about Leslie Wadsworth’s performance?
Her voice was too uninteresting and flat. She was also poor when performing accents.
