Bitter Roots – C.J Carmichael 


This is classed as a thriller but for me it reads like a dark romance novel or general fiction. A little too light and no feel of danger to the story. The murder in itself feels like an added backstory for the characters rather than the important part of this story. If you like these new types of fiction then it’s written well but for me I need more of a feeling of horror or pity for the victim but this really didn’t seem to care about the victim. 

Trials of a Teenage Werevulture – Emily Martha Sorensen


A magical tale that is funny and entertaining for fantasy fans. More for the younger reader but I loved it so older readers can happily enjoy this but don’t expect blood and gore that you would get from an adult type fiction. 

A great little story that I would be happy to read more off. 

Thanks to the author in letting me read this little gem for an honest review. 

Twenty-four potential children of prophecy – Emily Martha Sorensen


Twenty-four potential children of prophecy – Emily Martha Sorensen

Ok rubbish cover but so far a funny fantasy novel aimed at the younger reader.

An enchanting tale of one possible prophet that will do anything to avoid being the chosen one. Funny and a real page turner for young and old. 

The Hanging Girl – Eileen Cook

Intriguing story so far of a girl called Skye way over her head in a prank that’s turning sinister… Only part way though but good character and it is written brilliantly so far. 

Okay coming up to half way now and I hate to ruin the story but talking about the first twist but I didn’t see it coming. I hope the story continues to keep me fascinated and interested. 

This have kept me guessing and I was often way off. Great story.
Forgot to say that this was provided free for an unbiased review on NetGalley.

Skye Thorn has given tarot card readings for years, and now her psychic visions are helping the police find the town’s missing golden girl. It’s no challenge—her readings have always been faked, but this time she has some insider knowledge. The kidnapping was supposed to be easy—no one would get hurt and she’d get the money she needs to start a new life. But a seemingly harmless prank has turned dark, and Skye realizes the people she’s involved with are willing to kill to get what they want and she must discover their true identity before it’s too late.     

Den of Shadows – Christopher Byford


Sci Fi & Fantasy , Teens & YA

This is my current read for review by NetGalley. Even though the beginning is about the backstory and how the gambling den came about with the train you don’t have to be a train buff to get into the story. Feels sort of steampunk with the locomotive train and dress. 

A lot of gambling and drinking being brought up so not suitable for younger children.  I love the characters and the story caught my interest. Only about 40% so far so update to follow…

Okay the story builds up in momentum to the climax. No cliffhanger but I can see this being the start of a series that I would happily buy into. 

Drowned Silence – Amy McNutty


This is a little short I picked up. Sorry can’t remember how I came by this but either free on Amazon or as a review copy.

This is a little gem to be honest. Not a long story so I will not ruin with a long review.

Great story and characters and there isn’t much else to say. Prefect for a train or those moments when you haven’t the time for a long story but enough to have a story.

More young adult than horror of a budding friendship from the main characters that begins with a school project. Kelsey is a mystery to Dylan from how she dresses to being allergic to water and not using or likening anything before the 19th century…
