A new Amazon review of The Ordinary Life says that: "Kiefer keeps the storyline simple and it’s such an easy read that I was surprised it was over. I absolutely loved the ending – it was so appropriate for the feel of the book. I highly recommend this one!"
The latest review of The Ordinary Monster says: "One thing I really appreciate about Kiefer's books, and especially this one, is that each person is not just a caricature. Even the ones who are ostensibly the "monsters", the bad guys, the people who have clearly done evil things to other people, are fully examined."
