The Eighth Child
The Eighth Child
by Mike Hillier
Edition: Paperback

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Warning - This is a stay up all night read!, 8 May 2007
This review is from: The Eighth Child (Paperback)
I couldn't put this one down. Unlike many thrillers, the twists in this story are unpredictable.

I particularly enjoyed the way in which Mr Hillier has woven together recent French history with the modern day; the skeletons in the cupboard just won't let go! There is plenty of action, an element of romance and the psychological angle is intriguing, altogether a recipe for a great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A compelling web of intermingled themes, 30 Jan. 2007
This review is from: A Bucket of Ashes (Paperback)
This is a fascinating book because it deals with a variety of themes. On one level it gives us an insight into the lifestyle of British colonists in Africa, the inherent problems when two cultures are thrown into close proximity, the struggle of families dealing with discord and tragedy, and how all the characters involved handle their varying emotions. The main plot shows us an independent, strong woman learning to come to terms with her past and move on.

Not all the questions are answered, but then in life there are many unanswered questions, aren't there?

5.0 out of 5 stars A vampire story with a difference, 14 Dec. 2006
This review is from: The Possession Legacy (Paperback)
This is the sort of book that keeps you up all night because you just can't put it down. It has a fast pace, good character development and some interesting sub plots. All together, a darn good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A winning thriller, 7 Nov. 2006
There are not many books I pick up and can't put down. Ken Scott has a winning formulae which makes this book a must read. The double plots, which twist and turn around the central character, the anti-hero Donovan Smith, finally draw themselves together to provide a tense and satisfying end.
