#BookReview EVENTIDE by @MaeClair1 #supernatural #ghosts

As promised, my review of Hode’s Hill #3, EVENTIDE. The speed with which I devoured this series says it all. Blurb The darkness is coming . . . The old house near Hode’s Hill, Pennsylvania is a place for Madison Hewitt to start over—to put the trauma of her husband’s murder, and her subsequent breakdown, […]

#BookReview END OF DAY by @MaeClair1 #Supernatural #Ghosts

I really know when I’ve hit a series I love – it’s the only time I read as fast as I did, speeding through the Hode’s Hill books without pause. Here is my review of book #2, END OF DAY, and if you missed my review of book #1, CUSP OF NIGHT, you can catch […]

#BookReview CUSP OF NIGHT by @MaeClair1 #paranormal #ghosts

I thought the Hode’s Hill series would be a little out of my usual reading pattern, but with its mix of mystery and suspense, plus a goodly dollop of the supernatural, it soon had me hooked. Here is my review of the first instalment, CUSP OF NIGHT. I’ve just finished the second, and started the […]

What’s in a theme? & #BookReview by @KSMarsden

Way back when I was starting to write with a view to publication, someone asked me about the theme of my book. It wasn’t something I’d even thought about: I was writing an SF adventure story, what did theme have to do with anything? I reckoned I’d better consider this question though, and happily answered […]

#BookReview – WISP by Adele Marie Park #fantasy

I’m really busy with work just now, catching up on what could not be done during lockdown, but I’m also continuing to read (and write), so here is my latest book review: WISP by Adele Marie Park Blurb: Edra; a world where magic flourishes and where dark secrets are concealed by those who rule.

#BookReview PICARD, THE LAST BEST HOPE by Una McCormack #StarTrek

I’ve been a Star Trek fan since the very beginning. I’ve watched all the series over the decades, and a few weeks ago I took the plunge, re-instated my access to Amazon Prime TV, and started watching Picard. I hate to admit, I was pretty confused at the start, and felt I wasn’t watching Star […]

Book reviews: #3 & #4 in Richell Mead’s DARK SWAN series #UF

I decided against reviewing these books separately, as it really only means much if you’ve read the earlier books in the series. I reviewed book #1 STORM BORN, and #2 THORN QUEEN already, and although each book is a separate story, there is one overall arc to all four, #3 IRON CROWNED and #4 SHADOW […]

#BookReview: THORN QUEEN by Richelle Mead #UF
