I love the way this book is written. Well researched peek into Scottish history and a captivating story as well. Edinburgh is my favourite city and Helen Susan Swift has a way with words that makes the past spring alive. I was captivated by the poetic language as well as the story line set in 19th century. I will certainly be reading more by this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars confused with the instructions, 3 July 2016
the instructions are dreadful. I had to go on you tube to find out how to make a coffee. I still don't know how to make a latte. Seems like I have to use two pods to make a cappuccino, but it doesn't tell you that. Once you get the hang of it, it's really easy. The machine itself is fine for someone who lives alone like me.

This is the first book by McLaughlin I have read and I was not disappointed. The story is very good, fast moving, and something you do not want to put down. It has all the elements of a best seller. A girl, who might or might not have set fire to a nightclub, is in hiding and finds refuge with a homeless woman. We have a stalker, a sympathetic detective and some very dodgy characters, I would have given the story five stars were it not for fact that it does need editing.

Well written, something to touch the heart from the viewpoint of a young boy. Being born on an island myself, I loved this.

I felt there were too many characters and too much going on which confused me at times, otherwise I would have given it 5*. However, it is a page turner, and i have neglected my house and my garden because I had to know what happened next. I did not find it at all predictable. Thoroughly enjoyed the read. I shall remember the name of Rachel Abbott for the next time I want to read something unputable-downable.

I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of shorts. The evocative language carries the reader effortlessly from page to page to page. The characters are well rounded and the reader is immediately drawn into their lives.

Paper fish is a collection of well-written, evocative stories, that will stay with you long after you have finished reading them.

I almost gave up on buying books that reached the top ten in the kindle charts as I often find them disappointing, and don't understand how they got there. However I'm glad I bought this one. I loved it. Although it deals with a subject which could have been distressing, I found it easy and enjoyable. I certainly will read more books by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars very enjoyable, 26 Mar. 2016

What would happen if modern civilization crumbles and the world that we know is cast back to surviving in a world similar to medieval times?
The Stonegate Sword is a mesmerising, thought-provoking and well-crafted read that I thoroughly enjoyed.
I was immediately struck by the beautiful poetic writing that flows from page to page. The phrase, ‘painting a picture with words,’ springs to mind. I could see the countryside, see the ‘spears with keen-edged points flashing in the hard afternoon sun’ as they sailed towards their targets. The descriptions of both the characters and the scenery drew me into a world of which I know nothing, the wonderful world of fantasy – or is it possibility?
I found this book to be a quite satisfying read and highly recommend it to all who enjoy action-adventure stories and tales of battle and war. The Stonegate Sword by Harry James is more than mere fantasy, it is a well written novel, a story of life which the author describes in such a way that you are living each moment with the main characters of the book, feeling their struggles, pain and other raw emotions which transverse the centuries.
My reading list is varied, but this is a new genre to me and I am very glad that such an excellent read is my introduction this category.
