A Hockey Nightmare
A Hockey Nightmare
by Matt Harvey
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and different, 14 July 2013
This review is from: A Hockey Nightmare (Paperback)
A Hockey Nightmare is a great story. A young man moves to Europe to follow his dream of professional ice hockey only to discover that organised crime is the least of his problems. It's a thriller and a supernatural horror story the two twisting around the young hero as he tries to come to terms with his new life. It's fast paced, well written and mythology isn't over-played. The sport also isn't over-played (pun intended), so even if you aren't a fan of hockey and no nothing about it - you'll enjoy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book ever!, 12 Jun. 2013
Don't really know what I can add, my comments feel insignificant against such a great work. The ultimate book about isolation and self sufficiency I love it and it is one I continue to go back to. Fantastic descriptions and wonderful sense of place makes this one of the true all time greats. Daniel Defoe transports the reader to a fabulous world and then fills it with great set pieces. A book everybody should read.


Satanic Diaries
Satanic Diaries
by Krister Jones
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a laugh out loud book, 12 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Satanic Diaries (Paperback)
So long as you don't mind Satan and Hitler being the heroes of Hell you will find this book truly funny. Satan is told by his therapist that he needs to keep a diary to help his anger management issues and it's the funniest thing I have ever read. Jones never lets the plot of the story, the characters or the humor slide for a moment. The world is richly decorated with issues and Satan is the best anti-hero you'll ever meet. You won't be disappointed in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stirring family saga through the war, 1 May 2013
This is the startling third book in this series and it rips along at an incredible pace. From war torn London to the Welsh Valleys and France under occupation, with a dash of the Far East. The characters pull you into their world and hold you there throughout, great stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Edgy and disturbing, 1 May 2013
A very disturbing story written by a lady who apparently knows her stuff. The author is a telephone sex line chat girl and this book describes somebody in a similar role who lets her dark side take over. Quite violent and sexually charged. Not for the faint hearted


Lancelot And The Wolf
Lancelot And The Wolf
by Sarah Luddington
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the 1 Star reviews, this is grounbreaking stuff, 1 May 2013
This review is from: Lancelot And The Wolf (Paperback)
I nearly didn't go for this because of the one star reviews but having read it I can see why everybody has got upset. This takes a completely new spin on the legend and creates a love affair between two of the greatest knights in history, Arthur and Lancelot. It's just a shame the bigots can't see past their own prejudice and enjoy the story. It's about time somebody did something different with this.


A Dangerous Affair
A Dangerous Affair

5.0 out of 5 stars Fifty Shades of James Bond, 1 May 2013
Saw this all over the London Papers a couple of weeks ago. It;s quite risky stuff, James Bond or Bourne but with a fair bit of erotica. Fifty Shades only better written. The plot is quite interesting and manages to avoid cliches. What if somebody you thought you knew really well turned out to be something completely different? Really enjoyed this and will certainly hunt down more of L C Dale's work.


The Colour Of Magic: (Discworld Novel 1) (Discworld series)
The Colour Of Magic: (Discworld Novel 1) (Discworld series)
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best!, 1 May 2013
I've been a long time fan of the Discworld series but i was only when reviewing a book by new author Tim McFarlane that I remembered how much I enjoyed these books. The running gag with the luggage just kept me chuckling all the way. Wonderful characters and situations. Can't recommend it highly enough.


The Tower Of The Watchful Eye (The Legend Of Kairu Book 1)
The Tower Of The Watchful Eye (The Legend Of Kairu Book 1)
Price: £3.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry Potter meets Discworld, 1 May 2013
Surprisingly different. I the overcrowded fantasy world, especially with so much free stuff for kindle it has to be something a bit different to get me to pay out my own money. Tower of the Watchfull Eye did that. Funny and outrageous with the running gag of the chatty demon inside his head. This follows the well worn quest story but spins up some very interesting new ideas. I really enjoyed this and would recommend to fans of The Great Terry Pratchett


Virtually True
Virtually True
Price: £4.66

3.0 out of 5 stars Wanted to like it, 18 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Virtually True (Kindle Edition)
I really wanted to like this but it was too difficult to get into, The beginning was too slow and obscure and by the time it started to make sense I;d gotten a bit bored. Once it got going though it was a good read with lots of Matrix type stuff going on.
