End of Days: Penryn and the End of Days Book Three
End of Days: Penryn and the End of Days Book Three
Price: £4.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Hats off to Susan EE, 17 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A satisfying end to a great trilogy. The author's style is action packed and almost movie-like, and this is the most enjoyable series I can remember for some time. There are enough loose ends (Penryn's parents story for example) to justify another book so Susan really hope you take the hint from all your fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm in love......, 5 May 2015
I've been hunting for a sound bar for a while, considered Sonos but settled on this beautifully designed music system (it's much more than a speaker). It's very easy to set up, looks and sounds gorgeous. It makes the most of spotify premium with rich, room filling sound - a great way to discover & rediscover whatever your musical taste. Also excellent with iTunes on my iPad & Mac, & my synology NAS drive. I'm also using it as a soundbar with my TV via the optical cable & Apple TV which works brilliant a especially with HD films. The internet radio is excellent & loads quickly, unlike many others. The remote is OK but the Naim app is so convenient that you don't really need it. The large backlight dial i& glass base are striking and the overall impression is so classy I can feel the value of my home going up as I write. Its an investment piece but well worth it. Bear in mind it's heavy at 13 kgs so needs a sturdy shelf! One more tip - worth hard wiring to your router or to a home plug if you can - wireless is fine good but hard wiring is better. Buy it, you won't regret it.

3.0 out of 5 stars How to spoil a great story, 22 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Would have given this 5 stars but for the completely un-necessary cliff hanger at the end. I don't mind paying more for a complete story but do mind this tactic of exploiting readers by creating 2 or 3 books from what is so obviously one fairly short novel. What a shame that the author disrespects her readers this way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent practical guidance, 15 Mar. 2014
This is a really good and helpful read - it does not shy away from the pain and challenges of a facing redundancy but does provide inspiring and comprehensible real case examples of survival and moving on positively - and most importantly it offers hope at the most difficult of times.

Spotted this customisable cake decoration just before my brother's 50th birthday. Really made the cake special and he and the party guests were delighted. Very attractive, and efficient service and delivery - recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars So good my husband bought an extra one, 13 Aug. 2013

Very good kit, simple to use and extra connectors for a large range of devices. Worked well on some recent long flights. Fits easily into a small handbag. Charges my iphone, ipad and kindle. Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the box, 23 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to back up my MacBook pro then had a minor panic when I realised its for windows. Luckily formatting it was simple and speedy. Great piece of kit but don't bother with WD smart ware - counter intuitive and glitchy. I used time machine to back up 800gb of data with no problems at all. Oh and it's a great colour and I now have all my music & movies whenever I travel. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story, very glamourous and miles better than fifty shades....., 12 Aug. 2012

This review is from: Killer Heels (Kindle Edition)
I'm an avid reader and this is really entertaining fun. Salacious, intriguing and wirh a proper twist in the tale at the end. I was completely hooked and finished the book in less than 48 hrs. The storyline has echoes of "the devil wears Prada" and is firmly set in the fashion world but brings genuine freshness and sassiness to the female characters and believe ability to the male Svengali billionaire and other figures. Jodie, the talented ingenue, Victoria, Queen of the New York fashionistas, and Mireille the machievelian extraordinaire are all superbly drawn and give a real sense of the personal price of making it to the top. Yes it's very saucy indeed (and I'm no prude) but its in the context of characters that you actually care about. Fabulous! Curl up with it and forget about the unreliable summer weather...

2.0 out of 5 stars Misleading title........., 9 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Twist of Fate (Kindle Edition)
This story started well with an interesting premise of babies sold at birth to contrasting lives but deteriorates to become completely unbelievable. The characters especially the bad guys are one dimensional stereotypes, female leads are too wet for words and no sign of the sex in the supposedly "sexy" element of the tale anywhere! The writing style switches from present to past in a disconcerting way, disrupting the fluidity and cliffhangers. Do not confuse this author with Jo Rees as I did, you will be disappointed. I did finish it but found it irritating rather than the escapism I was looking for.
