Book Title: Midnight Sisters

Author: Sarah E Boucher

Category: Myths and Fairy Tales

My Rating: 4 Star

My Review:

I’m unfamiliar with the original fairy tale that this novel is based on, The Twelve Dancing Princesses, so I can’t comment on the uniqueness of this re-telling. However, I can say that it is a thoroughly enjoyable book in its own right. I did keep expecting the sisters to disappear into a magical land but I think this was down to the book being placed under the myths and fairy tale category. I think it would be better suited in young adult romance.

I liked Jonas from his first appearance. He is a fully rounded character with a nice sense of humour. The interaction he has with his supervisor, Gregor, and his friend, Braden is quite heart-warming. Continue reading “#BookReview Midnight Sisters by @saraheboucher #TuesdayBookBlog #RBRT”

I don’t know where to start! When I read The Dead Lands, which is the prequel to this book, I didn’t think I could ever feel quite so involved in a novel again, but I was wrong. Dylan Morgan has a unique talent for dropping you into the thick of the action as if you are a living, breathing member of the Erebus Superior Armed Forces. I had to keep coming up for breath after certain scenes just to check I was still in my living room! Continue reading “#BookReview The Dead City by @dylanjmorgan #TuesdayBookBlog #newrelease #RBRT”

My Review:

Shawnee Daniels is a computer forensics specialist by day and a cat burglar by night. I loved how the author managed to blend the two ‘roles’ so well. You get an insight into the talented specialist (or hacker!) as she uses her computer skills to aid the detectives, and then the flip side of her secret life of breaking and entering.

Author: Catchphrase Dan, Illustrated by Berg Norcross

Category: Children’s Fiction

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Review:

Not your traditional children’s story but Monkfish Maggie and the Bungalow Stairs has a certain unique charm that captivates the reader.

The illustrations are beautiful and flow very well with the story; my favourite has to be ‘The End’ piece with the weathervane.

Maggie is not a child protagonist, as is normally the case in children’s fiction. Maggie is, in fact, a seventy-year-old pensioner with a passion for gardening. Her husband, Nesbitt, is her soul mate, and it’s his unexpected disappearance that starts Maggie’s journey to rescue him.

The Dead Lands

Review:

I’ve read some fabulous reviews about this book and so was eager to get my hands on it, but none of these reviews prepared me for what I was about to read.

I’m already a huge Dylan Morgan fan; his horror books are not to be read without a light on, and his novella, October Rain, was an explosive sci-fi novella. With the promise of a sequel to The Dead Lands on the horizon, I jumped at the chance to read this post-apocalyptic thriller.

Lane is a bounty hunter and not afraid to live his life as a hired gun. He clears the streets of Erebus of the cheating, murdering scum and gets paid for it. When he is forced to re-join the army or face the death penalty, he is thrown into a situation beyond his control. Sent on a mission to the destroyed and desolate twin planet of Hemera, the crew are told that they are answering a distress signal from a president who was placed in a cryogenic tube one hundred years ago.

Review:

George recovers from the flu but finds that he is now able to see the ghosts that haunt people and make them ill. He discovers that he has a skill for killing these creatures and healing the sick person that was being haunted. He is aptly called the ghost killer. As the book progresses, we unearth that this skill has been present since George was a child but he had repressed the memories – until now.
