This review is from: Rules Of The Wild (Kindle Edition)
I rarely dont finish a book but I just couldnt manage this - the main character is so selfish and self absorbed that nothing else around her exists.

5.0 out of 5 stars The start of a new chapter...., 11 Sep 2014
I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of this book.

This is the 8th book in the Jessica Daniels series but has been written as book 1 from the 2nd series – its exciting to know this is a new chapter in Jessicas story.

I think this is something that Kerry Wilkingson does very well…. retains and develops the characters that we readers have grown to know and love whilst making sure that the stories / books provide exciting new developments which keep the reader hooked.

“Crossing The Line” is a fast paced roller coaster ride where, just as you think everything has been solved, another twist is revealed and then another!

There are actually three separate storylines….. each individual and creating its own set of unique challenges for the characters and intrigue for the reader.

The smallest storyline which throughout the book feels like simply an interesting sideline actually results in a shocking ending – the implications of which I am sure will be felt throughout book 9.

I cant wait for the next book to see the twists and turns Kerry Wilkinson has in store next!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dont miss the first in a great new series of books!, 5 Jun 2014

I have read all of Kerry Wilkinsons book and so was very excited to receive an advanced review copy of his latest book - the first in the Andrew Hunter series.

I was slightly apprehensive as I LOVE all of the Jessica Daniels books but had mixed feelings regarding Wilkinsons only other non-Jessica book "Watched".

However, I was NOT disappointed!

The main character, Andrew Hunter, was introduced in the Jessica Daniels book "Playing With Fire" - however, if you havent managed to read that yet (why not?!) you can still enjoy "Something Wicked". There are small references to Andrews interactions with Jessica and readers familiar with Jessicas world with recognise the geography of the locations.

Something Wicked is a real page turner that I found hard to put down.... Wilkinson combines great storytelling with fascinating characters. In true Wilkinson style the story develops at a good pace until reaching a thrilling, fast paced climax of an ending.

Andrew Hunter and his assistant, Jenny, are asked to look into a 'cold' case of a missing teenager... missing apart from 3 fingers. Hunter has few clues to start searching with and at first it is difficult to see how the story will unfold but it does so in a surprising and effective way.

Normally I can tell who has 'done it' within the first few chapters of a book but here I was genuinely surprised by the ending.

No spoilers here!

I am really looking forward to the next installment in the Andrew Hunt story.... once again Wilkinson has created fascinating characters who have real depth and personality. Both Andrew and Jenny are feel like unique individuals - both heroes in their own right but also both with relatable flaws and darker histories that have only just been touched upon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast-paced page turner...., 25 May 2014
I was lucky to receive this as an advance reveiw and prior to reading I knew nothing about the story at all. Therefore in the first couple of pages when a group of 16 year olds have to take part in a reckoning my instant thought was oh no its just another Hunger Games! I was so wrong!

This is the first in 3 books from the Silver Blackthorn Trilogy and it is brilliant.... a real page turner - a classic Dystopian book BUT unique in its storyline and characters.

I am not going to be posting anything about the storyline as you MUST get this book yourself :-)

The story is fast paced but detailed enough for you to feel drawn in, really part of the world that is being created with every page. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact that the version of the world in this book is set in the UK and anyone familiar with the country will instantly recognise locations. So many books of this genre exist in a made up world that sometimes it can be hard to see as anything other than fantasy HOWEVER as Wilkinson uses real places and develops the story of how such a world has come to exist it in such a logical way that it becomes very real. This adds a new dimension to the story as this is a world which could exist in the future.

Again Wilkinson has created characters with real depth.... good guys, bad guys.... each character is well rounded - the reader is left feeling on one hand like you know them but on the other hand teased that there is so much more to come.

The ending is fast paced and twisting - there is real suspense. Cant wait for the book 2!

Bought for my grandmother..... she wanted to have something to put on aching muscles. This was great as she can put it straight into the microwave - using a heavy kettle can be difficult now and this is not necessary with this great product!

My 10 year old asked for this for Christmas.... he was super happy and uses it all the time in the garden to practice.

It seems pretty hardwearing as its gets a right battering by our 3 boys plus the dog!

My 7 year old received this for his birthday.

The tank is a lot smaller than I had imagined but we had lots of eggs hatch and grow quickly... my kids all love watching them and they are super easy to look after - just a teeny scoop of food every few days.

My 7 year old received this for his birthday.... he has played it virtually every day since!

Its great as it is fun but at the same time encourages the player to want to learn more about the animals featured - at the end of every game the kids have dozens of questions!
