This review is from: The Gracekeepers (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an excellent book and it is hard to believe that it is her first book. The world created is one largely covered with water with a few small islands dotted around. This imaginary world is well described and the balance is struck between giving enough information so the world can be imagined but not going into endless detail.

The pacing in the book is excellent as well, building to a satisfying conclusion.

A very exciting book which mixes Viking mythology into a modern day story. The story works really well and is excellently paced. I would have liked the set up to be slightly longer and spend some more time developing the character of Loki.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A great book to get into but not for the casual reader. I have not finished it yet but will revisit the book when I have more time to dedicate to it.

It is a fascinating period and it was great finding out about later Rome.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An enjoyable read that helps put the Russian perspective much more front and centre. It's definitely worth reading if you are interested in the outbreak of WW1 but make sure that this is not the only book you read about it.

The writing style is fluent and it is an enjoyable read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Perfect if you listen to all your music via spotify, 30 Dec. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It is a good quality product which is perfect if you listen to all your music via spotify. I don't and ultimately I came to the conclusion that I don't have enough room to justify having a speaker that is not multipurpose.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great piece of kit and the software behind it is really well designed, with a clear dashboard so you can really see what is going on.

The watch looks good and feels good on the arm and the wireless dongle for uploading your data makes it super easy to use. As a Garmin sports watch user, not having to connect the watch every time you wanted to upload data felt like a huge improvement.

The slight downside is that I feel the margin for error in the stats is much greater than say a Garmin watch but the stats are still basically correct, if sometimes a little inflated.

This is a great book which will appeal to girls, for the most part. It's written well and goes alone at a great pace.
