What people are saying about Of Gods & Mortals:
An early review by Marc Magsaysay: Marc got a sneak peak at the first months worth of “Of Gods & Mortals.” Here’s what he had to say:
"Of Gods & Mortals" Lauren T. Hart
Lauren T. Hart reprises the tradition of "Serialized" novellas-with a twist and a touch of "film noir"....
In her latest work- "Of Gods & Mortals"; Ms. Hart takes on the 'immortal' or 'vampire' mythos with a keen eye for detail and a masterful use of prose to deliver the story of Anna Dimon (the protagonist) and David- her friend, 'familiar' and soon to be 'sidekick' in this tale of money, murder and betrayal.
Due to the fact that this work is going to be released in instalments, all I can say about this work thus far is that it is one of the most richly textured, finely crafted pieces of modern fiction I have had the privilege to read. EVER. The reader will find him/herself drawn in with Ms. Hart's simple and lyrical use of language to create scenes of vivid, blood-soaked violence- beautiful in its sheer brutality juxtaposed against situations of tenderness and caring.
Again- I HIGHLY recommend "Of Gods & Mortals" to anyone in need of something intelligent, intense and simply stunning to read. Catch it here at: http://www.laurenthart.com

Stephen Fonnesbeck: ( re: chapter 1) So far I like it. (found some typos but then I'll let that slide) ( re: chapter 19) I know I'm in the minority here but I would love to see more gay sex in these stories. :)
Ken Robbins: (re: chapter 1) I'm not much of a literary critic, but you got my attention. I'm also not a big fan of fantasy or Si-Fi, but I do like a good mystery. Keep it coming. I'm ready and I'm passing it along every chance I get. (re: chapter 10) What did I tell you? I've wanted you to publish for years. Now I am sure of it. I didn't fall asleep also even if it is 2:45 in the morning. I'm no literary critic, but I do know what I like. (re: chapter 11) Interestingly different and longer than I expected. (re: chapter 21) In 60+ years I have never been able to read fiction in any form, however your work in this book has captivated me and held my attention. I enjoy the way you've handle characters and their placement in the overall story. I also liked Anna and Gus's relationship and the eventual break up that she (Anna), was required to do. Your telling of the events of the last night together was handled very simply but above all lovingly. You are an outstanding writer and I look forward to the other chapters to come as well as future works from you. (re: chapter 24) I liked last nights chapter 24. Sweet but sad.
Anna Marie Petroff Byers: (re: chapter 1) Okay, seriously... I like it! Can't wait for Chapter 2!
Brian D. Byers: (re: chapter 7) Laurie... you are a phenomenal writer!!! ♥ (re: chapter 10) Oh, YEAH!

Buffy Ites Clary: Thinks LTH is hawt and I heart her! Oh, and she's brilliant but ya'll knew that already, too!
Triffini Burton: (re: chapter 1) You certainly have a gift for grabbing the reader right from the start. You could release the next chapter at...50 more fans...is it a wager? (re: chapter 7) I really like this chapter. I think it's my favorite so far...debateable... but as alway's it keeps me wanting more. (re: chapter 9) Woooo Hoooo!
Kirsten Sage Steadman: (re: chapter 7) I know I haven't mentioned it before, exactly in this way, only because I've assumed that you already knew, but just in case you don't, I have to tell you that I think that you are freakin awesome! Why don't you just get published already? Seriously. You story teller, you!
Barbara Duncan: (re: chapter 9) wonderfully written.. quite depressing! (re: chapter 11) wow!!! intense!!!
Tami Lea Hatton: (re: chapter 10) Girl... We really need to find you a publisher! This needs to be in print! It WILL get published!
