Control (Fringe Killers Book 4)
Control (Fringe Killers Book 4)
Price: £3.06

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your average crime novel., 3 Jan. 2015
This is the first book i have read in the fringe killers series, and i was pleasantly surprised that at no time did i feel i was missing out on the plot due to a lack of back knowledge. The characters main 2 characters are interesting, and have a great dynamic between them, and perhaps Jamie and Skip aren't your normal detectives they seem to get the job done.

The author has handled the difficult subject of domestic abuse quite effectively, and in what i consider to be a sensitive manner, whilst not shying away from the gritty realism of the situations that occur.

The story builds well throughout, with good descriptive writing and reasonably believable characters, it doesn't go quite where you expect, which is of course a good thing, as no body wants a predictable plot.

All in all I really enjoyed the read, and look forward to picking up another fringe killers novel.


Reunion (I Zombie)
Reunion (I Zombie)
Price: £0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and leaves you wanting more., 3 Jan. 2015
This tale of 2 lovers separated by the apocalypse is really well written from both authors, written as alternate chapters from him and her, telling of their view point, with cross over phone calls and text messages to help each other out.

The style of writing makes this really engaging read and the serial release is going to make this a story i enjoy for a long time. At such a low price you can't go wrong.


Zombie Radio (I Zombie)
Zombie Radio (I Zombie)
Price: £1.44

5.0 out of 5 stars Your personal soundtrack to the apocalypse is spelled out by the DJ, 13 Dec. 2014
Your personal sound track to the apocalype is laid down by our 'hero' the DJ as he tries to survive in the chaos caused by the end of the world as we know it. Barricaded into his home studio while the Zombies take over the world he tries to provide, hope survival information and some kick ass tunes to the public via the medium of WZMB Zombie Radio.

With an excellent character drawn from Jack Wallen's book My Zombie My, the story runs in the same time span as that book, it can be read stand alone, or as a well fitting piece of the puzzle within the series.

A delightful little novella, i read it in pretty much one sitting and didn't want it to end, bring on the next episode Mr Wallen please.


Hell's Muse (The Nameless Saga Book 1)
Hell's Muse (The Nameless Saga Book 1)
Price: £2.84

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint of heart, but so damned good., 13 Dec. 2014

I'll be honest, i struggled a little with this book, it took me a while to work out why and the simple answer is it's much more complex than my normal fare, there are layers and layers of plot, wrapped with some of the most fantastic visceral descriptions of the bowels of hell and the torments that reside within the darkest of universes.

I pushed onwards through this book actually having to think about what i was reading to find an excellent story from the most twisted of minds.

This book has layers like inception, the lead character is an author writing a book about an author who is writing a book. Along the ride the Nameless demon is unleashed from hell through the power of the pen, but into who's reality?

The layers are not just in the story/plot they are also within the commentary on modern society and the hideous beast that is the publishing industry in the digital age.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, once i had my brain turned on... but i will warn you now In this book Jack Wallen is a master of horror, and new depths of despair, depravity and disgust are plumbed throughout. It is not for the faint of heart!

Time of Death Book 2: Asylum (A Zombie Novel)
Price: £3.71

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a read., 9 Dec. 2014

I had the pleasure of reading an advance review copy of this book, and having enjoyed the first one in the series i had high hopes fro this sequel, they were met and exceeded.

This is a really good read, and i think it is better than the first book. You can feel the authors development alongside that of the characters and the environment in which they must survive. there is a good mix of horror, humour and realism, and as much as ican't stand yappy little dogs the antics of Daphne made me smile. there are some interesting new characters in this outing and i am curious as to how they will develop in the next installment.
