Desperate to protect Izabella from the increasing rages of Phyllis, Petra struggles to find balance between the forces that seek to rule her heart.

Oct 6, 2009"Girl on the Dock" Loved this book! Different from his first book Fly Over Country, but every bit as good if not better. MORE PLEASE!
Oct 5, 2009"The Girl on the Dock " Mr. Lippert is one of the most talented individuals I have come across in many years. Not only is he an excellent storyteller, but he is also an artist. His illustrations are some of the best works I have ever seen. Some of them have, to my eye, an eerie 3D effect to them. I urge everyone to read the provided preview of this story. You will not be disappointed. The gift of storytelling is rare, but Mr. Lippert is up to the task. "The Girls on the Dock" is a timeless tale of the struggle between good and evil.
Sep 17, 2009"Girl on the Dock" Reading GotD was like opening a magical trunk. There was a great deal of content in a small space. There is tension and mystery from the very beginning. The hidden past and the unbearable future are blended nicely . The characters are real enough, that you care what's going to happen. We actually watch one character "grow up" before our eyes. Throughout, the story you just know "something is going to happen" and when it does you cheer. A very satisfying read. Looking forward to more from this author.
Sep 17, 2009"Girl On The Dock" This is yet another enthralling novella by My Lippert, which kept me captivated right until the closing lines. Purely FANTASTIC! I absolutely loved this book, and I'm certain you will too. I look forward to more from Mr. Lippert, which I am certain will be to an even better standard than this masterpiece.
Sep 16, 2009"Another great fantasy by my new favorite author!" I recently finished this second fantasy novella by Mr.Lippert and thoroughly enjoyed it. While his first book was quite fanciful, this story has a much darker, portentous tone. There is a somewhat ominous foreshadowing of evil and Mr. Lippert certainly knows how to write evil. I found myself reacting viscerally to one particularly nasty character. He also knows how to evoke emotion with words and imagery. I felt Petra's despair and cried right along with her. And in the end, he knows how to write an amazing conclusion. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy.
