I’m back again with another review, this one the third in the Inspector Kirby mysteries – books 2 & 3 were released at the same time, so it was a great pleasure to go straight on to the next, after enjoying Brexitus! so much. If you missed my review, click on the title to see […]

#BookReview – BREXITUS! by Ian Martyn #paranormal #mystery

Back to reviewing – this time, book #2 in the Northumbria mystery series by Ian Martyn – contemporary mystery with more than a touch of the paranormal and supernatural. I reviewed book #1 HERE at 4*, this one came in as a solid 5* If you like the sound of this book from my review, […]

#BookReview – SOUL DESTROYER by Elicia Hyder #paranormal #angels

First, the good news: I’ve started writing again! I’ve begun both a Rustam short story, and a Caledonian Sprite novel. Both characters are immense fun to write, and just at the moment, Cassie Lake’s sassy, snarky outlook on life resonates with me. The downside is you’ll have to wait a bit longer for the final […]

Continuing to catch up on my reading, I’m also catching up on my reviews. I recently shared my review for book #3 in the Messenger Chronicles: The Nightshade’s Touch, and mentioned that it grabbed me so completely I bought the next one as soon as I got off the aircraft where I’d been reading. Here […]

I gave Deborah Jay’s novel – The Prince’s Man –  5/5 stars and posted this review on both Goodreads and Amazon: I’m not sure what I was expecting when I started reading ‘The Prince’s Man’, but the reality blew me away. The story is a grown up fantasy reminiscent…

##BookReview – THREATS OF SKY AND SEA by Jennifer Ellision #EpicFantasy #Elementals

I am always drawn to read other author’s takes on elementals, hence this pick. “In a kingdom of Elementals, she thought she was ordinary. She was wrong.”   Here are my thoughts… Threats of Sky and Sea by Jennifer Ellision My rating: 5 of 5 stars 16-year-old Bree knows nothing beyond her simple life, helping […]
